Welcoming the new year with a happy smile!!

Happy Friday people!! Its Friday, my favorite day of the week with the anticipation of a fabulous weekend ahead :)

Its all the more special because today is the last day of this year ending on the note of a promising new year ahead. How could I let go of this opportunity to thank the people who made this year so special and wonderful for me. This was the year I started this blog without knowing I would be meeting such wonderful people and learn so many new things including the art of giving and sharing. This was the year I stepped into a new...beautiful  phase of my life..I got married to a wonderful person. This was the year I said good-bye to my two and a half year employer and this was the year I got operated upon. This was the year which was so eventful that it will always remain in my memories.

In the year to come, I look forward to creating beautiful things, learning and sharing...I look forward to finding a new job that suits my needs and skills..I look forward to stay healthy and I look forward to making happy memories in my married life with the person I love so much :) I hope the new year comes with good things for me and all.

With that note, I would love to share a simple card I made using the Skipping Stone Sketch#57 and Caardvarks theme of Monochromatic.    


I used stamps from the American Crafts Thanks set. 

I would like to dedicate this card to all the people who make me happy...all my regular visitors..readers..well wishers..friends...my family members and above all my husband. Thanks for being there always. Wish you all a very happy new year!!

Diwali Wishes

Hello people!! The weekend is so near that it makes me happy already :D Finally I started on my Diwali cards for this year. I know I am terribly late but I am trying to make it up. For my readers who aren't aware of the Diwali festival, Diwali is known as the festival of lights and one of the biggest festivals in India signifying the victory of good over evil. This year we are celebrating Diwali on 5 November. We celebrate by decorating our houses, lighting candle, fireworks, lots of good food, and lots and lots of sweets (I love this part :D) 


Okay now enough of blabbering, here is a card a made for the Moxie Fab World Challenge - Perfectly Placed Pleats  and Speedy the Cat's Friend's Challenge - Stitching


Look how the paper pleats make for the cutest candles. Doesn't that stitched sentiment look pretty too?

After I made one and liked it, I went crazy experimenting with colors, size, and various different things :D
Here is another variations I came up with.

Added a little hand-stitching along the edges, embellished each tag with lot of elementary stickers from different Echo Park Collection and had the most fun writing those 10 things about DH. It made me fell so ble…

A year in review 2016 + Giveaway!

Hello,

As we step into the new year, I wanted to take a moment and reflect upon this past year which has been mostly amazing for me. 2016 was tremendous for me in terms of both professional and personal life. Yes, there were moments and events that I would not never like to experience again but today I just wanted to focus on the good and happy.

So today I am going to highlight my favourite projects and moments throughout this year. I also have a giveaway for you guys as a thank you for always being so supportive and appreciative. You always motivate me to do better and more.




I started year 2016 with this close-to-my-heart watercolor piece. This artwork is special because this was the first of the many! I fell in love with using stamps to build watercolor scenes and kept making them throughout the year.


This photo of the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco has so many lovely memories from our big family vacation this year. It was fun converting it into a watercolor piece. Also this …
