Doilies and Flowers

This post is for my friend Chaitali. Congratulations to her, as she just joined the design team on My Time To Craft !!

I loved the card she made for this design team and I wanted to give it a try. I also have water colors that she mentioned, so no stopping me. :) I figured I should give it a try. Here is my first try with water colors.

Day 13 - Call Me

Sometimes you miss your dear one but you can't say it enough. This was almost like someone read my mind and wanted me to say it out loud. So I took the chance to say it a little differently. I call it, "Saying it with attitude". :) In these modern days, when everyone is busy with their life, I have heard this many a times. Only slowly did I understand, when they say, "If you wanna talk, I am all ears" means simply "Call me, I want to talk to you". :)

So here it is. Simple but conveys the message. I guess I got lucky finding this sentiment rubber stamp at Ben Franklin too. :) The girl with a cell phone is a digital stamp I got online.

If you are my friend and you are reading this blog, you know my number, just call me right now. :)

Day 12 - Ad Inspired

It's been a long time that I have got a chance or the time to make a card. This week has been so hectic that I did not get time to get to this. So now I started making up for all the cards I missed.

Day 12 challenge is to make a card inspired by an ad from Bombay company. I have added the ad picture here. So inspired by this card, I made this card below. Since I have been feeling nostalgic in the recent times, I have depicted the same here with the sentiment. All are digital stamps that I used. I printed the text for the background, added a lavendar transparent ribbon as I wanted the focus to be on the couch than on the ribbon. I wanted to try paper piecing for this, for the couch. But did not get time for it, so went with Tombow markers instead.

As always, I appreciate your suggestions/comments. This challenge goes to Day 12 - Ad Inspired challenge from 365 cards blog

Day 11 - Super Sketchy Sunday

It's Super Sketchy Sunday again and here is the sketch for the day. I think I mostly followed the design except for the lace at the bottom. But made it more spring-y and hoppy. :)

Here is my card matching this sketch. Let me know how you like it.

Day 10 - Happy Birthday, BFF

The challenge for Day 10 was to make a card for your BFF, someone who you just cannot live without. One name came to my mind, without her I do not know how I would have lived my past few years. Her name is Sudha and we have known each other for past 15 years now and I cannot imagine my life without her. I wanted to find a stamp to just represent her. After searching for a while, I could not find anything in rubber/clear stamps in the stores. So I searched online and I found this digital stamp.

She likes to read books and she is a dreamer. Most of the times, you will find her in this exact same pose, cozy in a blanket, with a book in her hand and some herbal tea on the side. So I thought this was very apt. The paper I used this time was from Taylored expressions. And the sentiment stamp is from PTI.

This one is clearly dedicated to by BFF, Sudha. It's not her Birthday today but it is in a month's time and I get to post it to her place so she can have it. :)

Day 9 - Tag, You're It

Day 9's challenge was to make a Tag with a theme based on rainbow colors. I have never made a tag before. So this was some experience. I have been lagging by three days now and finally playing catchup. I still have to make the Sunday's card but I will get to it tomorrow. For now, here is my first take on making a tag.
 I just used an border punch from EK to make this pattern for each of the rainbow colored paper. Then added an embellishment I made using Taylored expressesion stamp. Suggestions/Comments welcome.
