Miss you my friends!!!

My dear friends, I am writing this post in the middle of my trip to India... well yes, I have been missing all of you and also the fun in the blog land for quite sometime, precisely from November. I know you are seeing my DT posts but they are all pre-scheduled and I haven't done any paper craft in such a long time :(

But today, I am here just to say a "BIG THANK YOU"  to all my friends who have been very kind and sweet to visit my blog and leave me their sweet comments, to all those who thought my creativity is worthy enough to be followed and to my DT at ATCAS, ATSM, Catchy Challenges and for being the sweetest team ever. I want to let you know that even though you don't see my comments on ur posts... I always try to take sometime out to admire your creativity :D Thank you for being my inspiration.

But creativity doesn't stop anywhere.... yep I am sharing something I learnt here in India from my Sister-in-law who runs an art school SHINY COLORS.... my very first oil painting. 

Hope you will like this :) And yes, my trip will end soon and I will catch up with you in the new year :)

By the way I am enjoying my family time after two long years :)

It's Saturday and therefore its time for a new challenge at Addicted to CAS and all our dear CAS lovers and winter lovers get set as the code word this week is SNOWFLAKE selected by our amazing and talented Karen. She is also the host for this challenge. It's time for the snow lovers to create some sweet cards that incorporate snowflakes. Also, this is a perfect cue word for holiday cards which you must be in a rush to create.
Our winner will get a wonderful prize from our amazing sponsors StampArt Designs by Kathryne

For my DT card, I wanted to create that snowy elegance that snowflake gives with white and blue colors. Here's what I did...
To make this card, I used a snowflake Paper stencil which I did purchase from a grocery store (Yeah!! I always try to find things in all the stores that can be used in my crafting LOL!!) I put some repositionable glue behind the snowflake and did some masking and inking using light and dark shades of Blue Memento Dew drop dye inks keeping the snowflake off the edges of the card base. I then inked the same snowflake which was used for masking and stuck it on the card base. To add finishing touches I added some white pearls. Hope you like my card :)

Our DT has come up with some amazing projects this week. Pop over to our ATCAS challenge blog here and take a peek. I am looking forward to the challenge this fortnight and am very excited to visit your blogs.

I also want to play this for the following challenges -

1. Keep it Simple #28 - SNOW
2. Inspired by #99 

Have fun in creating a some sweet snowy CAS card :) and thank you for visiting my blog.

ATSM #74 - Addicted to CAS

We have a wonderful new challenge for you this week at Addicted to stamps and more... Addicted to CASWe all know what clean and simple is right? It's all about the design, not the technique,  not the tools, not the embellishments. It's all about the design Uncluttered, lots of white or open space and one main focal point. For my DT card I followed the same rules...

This is very quick and easy card and to make this card,  I used a wood mounted stamp of coffee mug (from Studio G) and stamped it once on the card base and another on a separate piece of card stock and fuzzy cut it. Stuck it over the same stamped image on card base. Then I stamped hearts from Studio-G iClear set and and arrow and stuck it. Finally, Sentiment (from paper Sweeties) was stamped. Hope you like my card. 

There is a lot more lovely inspiration from the DT, Please visit our challenge blog here. The winner will receive a wonderful prize from our sponsor this week Digi Darla Designs. Take a peek at their store here 

I am excited to see what you will come up with ....

Thank you so much for visiting my blog and leaving me a comment :)
