Desktop Calender!

I have been waiting impatiently to share this with you, something I had wanted to do for a long time and finally I gathered the courage to do it.

I used to hand draw and water color when I was in school and that is something I used to love, something that took a back seat when I discovered stamping :D But I have been meaning to get back to it for a while as it is very therapeutic for me :)

And when I signed up for the Swap Central India's last swap - Calenders, I knew this was the opportunity I was waiting for. So I grabbed it with both hands and here is the result.

Please be kind, because I drew after years and these might not be perfect :)


And there you have it. An outcome of labor of love. Even though my fingers went numb with all the drawing in one go, I still had so much fun and the results were so gratifying.

I hope you like it too. Please let me what you think, it would mean a lot to me. Thank you for all your love and support!

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.

I know I w…
