I crafted.....finally :)

So I had been struggling to find time to craft with my home needing cleaning & organizing (being away for 3 months isn't fun that way), my younger brother visiting, maid being on leave for a couple of days in between, whole lot of laundry waiting to be done and not to forget a 2 month old, very active baby around who wants complete attention when she is awake :)
I finally crafted yesterday when she slept and I was so happy to craft after more than 3 months (feels like ages). I desperately needed the "ME" time.

As I was browsing some of my favorite blogs, I saw this weekend challenge: Mini Cards over at Penny Black and I knew it was the kind of start I needed. Nothing too big, just small mini cards :)

And here is what I made.

Supplies: cardstock: Elle Erre Fabriano!;  stamps: Penny Black(Hello Friend); inks: Jenni Bowlin (Brown Sugar);

Super fun tag shaped mini cards which can be used for any occasion from Birthday to Christmas.

I used "Hello Friend" PB clear set, lots of watercolors, some stickles and braided yarn string to enhance the home made effect.

I am also entering this to the current Paper Issues Challenge - Tag, You're it.
See ya around soon (I hope :))

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.

Birthday Explosion Box!

Here is something that I am very proud of. This was my first attempt at a 3D paper cake and I adore how it turned out. More loved because I am not really a pink girl and this explosion is all pink and I still love it :)
