Recycled Flowers + Giveaway Winner!

Hello people! Sorry for the delay in announcing the giveaway winner but these days my energy levels are completely sapped and all I wanna do is lie down. Hopefully I'll feel better soon :)

So on to the giveaway winner.  Thank you for all your kind comments and support and encouragement. I am so lucky to be surrounded by such a wonderful group of people.

.................................................................

Today I have a little recycled project to share with you. Do you remember how I recycled the egg trays sometime back. I had some left overs from that project which I put to use here.




I used a cute little empty olive oil bottle and turned it into a vase holding these flowers made of egg cartons. The big stitched buttons are from Pie Lane. You can do so many variations with these. What I have done is very basic. You could add beads to the wire, Paint some design on the flowers, cover the wire with green fabric/washi tape, add some fabric/paper leaves. So many possibilities.

I am entering this for Sonia's Recycling challenge at Yvonne's blog.

Thanks for visiting! Hope to see you guys soon again!

Diwali Wishes

Hello people!! The weekend is so near that it makes me happy already :D Finally I started on my Diwali cards for this year. I know I am terribly late but I am trying to make it up. For my readers who aren't aware of the Diwali festival, Diwali is known as the festival of lights and one of the biggest festivals in India signifying the victory of good over evil. This year we are celebrating Diwali on 5 November. We celebrate by decorating our houses, lighting candle, fireworks, lots of good food, and lots and lots of sweets (I love this part :D) 


Okay now enough of blabbering, here is a card a made for the Moxie Fab World Challenge - Perfectly Placed Pleats  and Speedy the Cat's Friend's Challenge - Stitching


Look how the paper pleats make for the cutest candles. Doesn't that stitched sentiment look pretty too?

After I made one and liked it, I went crazy experimenting with colors, size, and various different things :D
Here is another variations I came up with.
