Cards for a cause: Clean & Simple!


Sorry for not being around here! But my Facebook page is quite active and you might want to follow me there as well so you don't miss out :)

So there's is this lovely group on Facebook started by some wonderful people and managed by Tejal called "Cards For A Cause" which aims at sending some sunshine into the lives of people who really need it and might appreciate a little note or a handmade card.

So I made these simple pretty cards for Cancer patients in India. I hope they bring a smile on the faces and give them hope during the tough times.

I used the Altenew Persian Motifs stamp set and colored the images using Spectrum Noir Markers. The font is handwritten in Hindi (Devanagari) as the people these cards will be sent to speak hindi as their first language and have little or no understanding of english.

The sentiment roughly translates to "Hope keeps the world going".

I am entering this card for the Altenew August Challenge - Places around the world, inspiration being the pop of colors on the white background.

Have a great day!


  1. Oh, how sweet of you to make cards for patients in India! I'm sure your cards will brighten up their days. Thanks so much joining in the fun with us at the Altenew August challenge. Hugs, May

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.

...thats what I told my DH yesterday as it was our engagement anniversary. One year back on 16th of May, we got engaged and I wanted to gift him something special and different and that is when I stumbled upon Monicka Wright's blog and decided to case her wonderful note card.

It made me fell so ble…
