A Very HAPPY KARWA CHAUTH to all my SAHM friends!!!!

For my international friends, Karwa Chauth is a festival celebrated by married Hindu ladies all over the world. On this day, the wife keeps a fast for the husband, praying for his long life and good health. She will not eat anything for the whole day and at night after seeing the moon, takes the first sip of water from her husband's hand!!! So Romantic!!!!! The lady dresses up very nicely decking in beautiful sarees and adorned with jewellery, she puts henna on her hand. All the ladies sing and dance and its a sight to be seen when all of them in a family offer their prayers at night. Sometimes, even husbands fast with their wives!!!!! But thats just out of love!!!!

Now, to some craft talk.

This card is made with lots of affection cos, I specially love this Tilda with butterfly. The flowers are punch crafted and the PP is from Echo park and fabriano. Distressing is done with wild honey distress inks. I,ve used spellbinders for the frame and CB corner dies for the corners. The brown lace is a Marianne's Creatables Dies. These are great to work with as they give intricate cutting and embossing in one go. The tida is coloured with steadler colour pencils with Pie Lane glitter balls on her hair. I,ve added some pearls and shimmer and the yellow gingham ribbon if from my stash.

Challenges Entered:

I hope I get enough time next week to make more cards !
Enjoy Your Sunday!!!

Hi friends!
As usual this week also flew by with not a minute to rest. But one good news is that I won a digital scrapbooking software on Mansi's Blog! Now, this I really needed cos I,m in the process of making a memento photo book for my DH who celebrated their re-union in Bangalore in MSRIT after 21 years! What a blast he had! And now those books will be given to 30 people who were present! So thats lot of hard work.

I went on a card making spree last night and came up with four cards!! Now thats quite a feat! But all these are one layer cards and I made them for the wee memories challenge. But due to lack of time was unable to post it and the challenge ended! Well, thats how life is! Oppurtunities come once and we should not waste a moment in using them. A lesson well learnt!Anyways, I,m still entering them for another challenge at Wee Memories where we have to make cards without patterned papers. So these fit here also.
Lot of stamping, embossing, distressing and colouring have gone into these. I esp like the white
card with the sheena douglas stamp of poppies. Which one do you like the best? And mind you! making these were not easy as you all know that CAS is not my style. But I thoroughly enjoyed making them.

It seems that after love there are butterflies in the air everywhere. The blogging world is full of these fluttering beauties! So I too made one. And yes! I finally got My silhouette sd machine. It is a wonderful and cuts the most intricate designs. So this is my very first card using the wonder tool. This is made for the butterfly blog linky party. The butterflies and the swirl frame are cut in the SD and then lots of glitter is used. Other supplies are Computer generated PP, spellbinders scalloped circles, sentiments from fiskars. MS double loop punch, felt ribbon and the embellishments are from a Rak sent by mandy from Yvonnes challenge.

Card making is something I love immensely. Although in India, the concept of card making is still not very in, yet, I love trying out new techniques with card making. Esp, since I got my cuttlebug, it has become very addictive. Although, all cards are very close to my heart, but these I feel are my top 10. You can also post your 10 best cards and win amazing prizes. Do visit this blog to know the details.
I hope you enjoy watching these as much as I enjoyed making them. A Happy New Year To all Of You!!!
