Make a wish..

Hi !
Today I attempted making a card which is different from my style...I end up making feminine cards 80% of the time..and was getting a little bored with it..I haven't challenged myself at all..never made any fancy folds..or Easel cards or even magic boxes for that matter..forget that I haven't made many cute cards or masculine cards..Looking back at your work with a little critical eye is so gives you perspective..helps you grow and this is exactly my mood right now..I am not feeling too proud of my cards :-( But I sure have been lucky with so many sweet praises for my cards that really help me come back to the world of paper crafting...thankyou all.
So this is my attempt at making a birthday card for a little boy, let me know what you think ..critical remarks are as welcome as praises so feel free! :-)
Have a great day!
challenges to thank:
crafts4eternity- midnight magic
crafterscornerindia - diecuts/punches with stamping
itsybitsyindia - keep it sweet n simple

Shabby roses

This is another shaped shabby-chic card I made for the challenges over at Lulupu -s and Crafter's corner challenges. I quite liked this card..specially because I got to use my fav WildOrchid crafts flowers which were lying in my hubby's U.S office and also my fav dies. After I uploaded this first pic I realised the sentiment was 'nt visible so I had to take another pic..but I kept the first one because I managed to capture the true colors of this card.Hope you like it!

Glittery butterfly

Hi all I have made this card for crafterscorner challenge 2 -Diecuts with stamping.  ,CAS(E) this sketch -challenge 6 and Itsy Bitsy- K.I.S.S This is amongst the simplest cards I have made..Though I like to believe I am not a big fan of bling/glitter somehow, I end up using a lot of both on my cards ..pretty funny :-)
Hope you like it!


Today I attempted making a shabby chic card after a really long time..Shabby chic is actually one of my favourite styles of cardmaking. So when the challenge came up at Lulupu I was thrilled..I wish I had a birdcage die for this one ..took a lot of time drawing and cutting by hand :-) . Hope you like it ...

Important but unfinished ..until today

Today I got to do something I have been  desperately wanting to do for a long time..actually for a year and a half. Last year on my birthday I received three wonderful packages..beautiful gifts from three awesome girls..Ujjwal sent me this beautiful card..Sudha sent me some wonderful papers and Ash sent me this utterly awesome mini, handcrafted with so much love and affection..each page made so painstakingly. Well why I have been so careless as to not post about it then is a very long story..I really wanted to post about these beautiful presents..tell the world how lucky I am to receive these gifts..but I really do want to apologize to these ladies if they are reading my post ..I am truly sorry..but I had genuine reasons. .I seriously hope you alll forgive me..
