I'm back!!

Hi !!I'm back in India and it feels great to be back home!!Hope you all have been great. 
I finally got my bigshot which was lying in hubbie's office in the U.S I was absolutely thrilled to use it considering how long I was pining for it!I sat down to make this card for a few challenges.Making a card after a long time was a bit difficult..ideas weren't flowing that easily :-)
I used my fav stamps Hero Arts designer woodgrain and friend definition..and did resist embossing for the very first time using distress inks.I have made the card for the following challenges:
1)cardpatterns-sketch 114
3)jac-inks-heat embossing
5)lexiscreations- friendship
Hope to be making cards more often now..thought the heat here is bad and  my body clock has gone haywire..I sleep mostly during the day and am awake all night!!Hope this improves soon!!
Have a great day!!

An Art-card

I'm back after a week and this time I've again been inspired by Cardpatterns sketch 107! I am very happy today because I loved making this card , every bit of it because I got to combine my two big passions..card-making and art!!I love painting with soft pastels..I love how you can blend them with your fingers and how the picture looks almost like an oil painting without the effort of an oil painting!I made the painting of a bunch of tulips (copied from a book on pastel paintings) on pastel paper and made the frame with icecream sticks.I used papers and black twine sent to me by dearest Asha..did a bit of distressing with white paint around the edges..and used a brad to hang the painting!Hope you like the card ....have a great day!

Hi dearies!!
Hope you are all doing well..
Here's a card I made yesterday for card patterns sketch 106. I started out with something in mind and ended up with something quite different!It may be because I've been so out of touch for some time now :-(My  mojo is slowly returning  and I seriously hope to make more cards regularly..Here are the pics of the awesome candy I won from Asha..I squealed in delight when the huge box was delivered to me!Thanks so much Asha!

Asha Ki Kiran (A ray of hope)

Hi All!
Hope you remember me!! This is such an apt title for this post  and it is dedicated to my dear friend  Asha ..well I dunno how to start but let me's been almost a month since I've been back from my brothers wedding went really well..all the ceremonies were beautiful..and totally enjoyed myself.Well after getting back ..I just couldn't get back to mojo just decided to take an extended I kept waiting and waiting.(.plus I have been waiting for my big-shot too) but mojo never returned.I had given up all hopes of it returning...until I got a call from dear Asha who was constantly messaging and asking me what was up and why I wasn't making cards.We spoke for the first time and almost for an hour..about soo many things ..And voila! after we spoke  my mojo just appeared out of nowhere and I sat down at midnight and was up making his card till 2 you see though my mojo hasn't returned completely I see a ray of hope..I'm assured it isn't gone for good..thankyou Asha..and I dedicate this card to you..I mean I made it for you..sorry to ruin the surprise..I made the card totally inspired by my lovely buddy Sasya's card infact it is very similar..I am such a huge fan of hers I just can't help imitating her style (please don't be annoyed Sasya).It is based in the card patternds  sketch 99 but  I didn't enter it in the challenge because I don't think it would be fair.Have a nice day you all!!!
