Welcome back!

Hi guys!

Have almost been away for months from my blog...had some deadlines and was busy...blah blah.. so many excuses, but now have restarted !

Thanks to all the people in my life who have supported me... I believe that we should only surround ourselves with people who appreciate you and rest should just be dumped.

So here is a card I created from Hero Arts stamp set and mft's new stamps set:

Guess light was different for both pics and here are the stamp and die sets used:

Wish Big by Hero Arts

Die-namics Textile Rectangle & Stamp Set by MFT

Also to get the exact cut I used masking tape to hold the car and spellbinder die in place while making it go through my Grand Calibur. without removing the blue card's cit piece from the die, I cut out the exact size from mint AC cardstock to layer inside the card!

Happy crafting..

When are you too old to celebrate valentine?!

Hello Bloggers,

Strange title, huh, always make the ladies say, nahh we are too young to be thinking or answering this question. But yes, I have come to that time in life where celebrating has different meanings. Dont take me wrong, I still love fancy restaurants, expensive gifts, surprises and yes, Chocolates :)
But now I look forward to small , happy moments in everyday life.

So to celebrate those moments, I will dedicate February, 2012 as "Celebrate Thee! " month.

I havent planned anything out yet, so lets go with the flow.
This will give me the opportunity to make my first journal,have been putting it off for quite some time. So will be back with chapter 1 of "Celebrate Thee!"

Till then enjoy some shots from Mommy & Me 2012 and an altered box.

Magnolia colored with Copics:
*Hair: C7, C5, C3, C1
*Clothes: B93, B97, C1

Happy crafting!

2012 on the way!

its suprising how 2011 just flew away and now coming sunday will be 2012.
2011 has been quite eventful, learned quite a lot and would have wanted to get more out of it :)
Have a few resolutions coming up for 2012,lets see how they revolve around me. Would want to document 2012 and yes take out time to get creative for my own self :p

Anyways, here's my last creation of 2011,as will be traveling to Nepal for New Years..(couldn't find a colder place :p )
This card is a sample for "Get Frameous " Challenge sponsored by Lil Bee at Abudhabi Papercraft.
Owl stamp is from Hero Arts and has been colored in by Copic. Window frame is the new collection from spellbinders Heartfelt Creations DECORATIVE WINDOW SCENE  Die

The star scene behind the frame is created with Martha Stewart STARRY SKY Punch All Over The Page.
The mat for the frame is created with brown AC cardstock, embossed and crackled with Ranger's Picket fence.
The branch is frm Maya Road chipboards, I just love them!!

Time off ,have to pack as well!, Have the best New Year's eve, and lots of wishes for the 2012 ahead...keep me in your thoughts.
Happy crafting!
