Sweater inspiration!

This week’s Tuesday Trigger inspiration at Moxie Fab World is a gorgeous sweater. 
Here is the sweater for you.
 Here is my take on the challenge.
A simple and clean card. I was inspired by the colors and found this SU DSP so similar in color to the sweater. Loved the button and added SU antique brad to make it look similar to the one on the sweater. Dry embossing to get the texture seen on the sweater and finally I tried to recreate the ruffled collar by punching border using Martha Stewart punch.I made that flower using Laurie’s flower tutorial. Here is the link to her video. Gorgeous flower and so easy to make. Thanks Laurie!
I am thrilled with the card! Hope you like it too…:)

Curtain Call Color Challenge {ACT 53}

Morning everybody, Gosh! its just 9.15 AM and the temperature is already 29 degree C. Going to be a hot and humid day, I reckon! Hate it! I cleaned the carport yesterday! 2 hours of backaching work and the overnight the wind blew all the leaves back in…. Grrrrr! Always happens! 😦
Edited: Sorry the link says “I am the first” I had used it for another challenge and forgotton to delete it.  Ooops!
 I am sharing a card I made for Curtain Call Color Challenge. 
Here is the inspirational photo and the colors for the challenge.

Here is my take on the challenge.

 Halloween is not something we do in Australia!  So I chose a birthday card instead. Birthday cards are fast moving too! I love the embossed polka dots (my fav embossing folder) and the sparkly black diecut. The flourishes are from my scrapbooking stash. Sentiment, felt diecuts are from PTI, Vintage brads (my fav), cardstocks from SU, Rhinestones from Kaisercraft. Love the result. Earthy feel to the card don’t you think? 🙂
Thanks for the challenge 🙂 And thanks for stopping by too!


Blog Hop

October Papertrey Blog Hop

Another month has come and nearly gone. Cannot believe its already 25th of October. But the exciting thing that happens every 25th is PTI’s blog hop.

This month’s theme is

There is always a lot of focus on Christmas in our industry this time of year, as that is what the majority
of the population celebrates.  However, this month’s blog hop is dedicated to those that celebrate winter
holidays other than Christmas.  Create a project that celebrates Hanukkah, Kwanzaa or some other
winter holiday as we embrace everyone’s beliefs in a celebration of diversity through paper crafting.

I decided to make a card for my PTI forum friend Noora as she will be celebrating Eid in November. Its exciting to make a card for Eid as I don’t celebrate Eid.  This the first Eid card I have ever made. Did some research on the festival to be honest as I knew very little about it.  Without any further delay, here is the card.

Hope I picked the right colors, Noora! And  I kept the sentiment general on the outside. I like the way the card turned out. I hope you like it, Noora!  Ted, the green is Hunter’s Green. I was reminded of you when I was making the card. I am loving the color now. Will definitely buy PTI’s  Pinefeather Green cardstock in my next order.
Now, this month’s theme is very interesting and I want to see what everbody else has made.
Happy Hopping!


A Passion for Papertrey Challenge.

Hi everybody,
A Passion for Papertrey blog has a CASE challenge this week. Case any DT’s card. When I read it, I said to myself, “thats easy”. But only when I started looking into the DT’s projects, that I found myself in trouble. I wanted to CASE all of them. Selecting one card was sooo difficult. Finally I decided to do this card by Nicole Heady.
Love the simplicity of the card. The colors are gorgeous. 
Here is my CASE card.
Edited: Won the top #3 in the CASE challenge

I changed the colors and added some texture by embossing. Well, just figured out that the tree is a bit crooked. But hey its handmade, slight imperfections are allowed right?  I love the layout of this card and how different color combinations could be used.
Thanks for giving an opportunity to CASE Papertrey DT’s card. Wish you could put up this challenge once every two months. I have a list of their cards to CASE lol!
Have a great day!

Exciting news

Well, I am sorry I did not post my second post yesterday! I was so tired after taking kids for different lessons, that I slept on the couch watching TV.
The exciting news is that I am given the opportunity to design for Sasya Sketches blog. Here is the Sasya’s sketch blog for you. I had applied a while ago and yesterday I got the good news. I love love sketches and
I am so excited to design for them. Can’t wait to start.
This is their sketch #33
Here is my take on the sketch.
Well, there is something not right about this card! I don’t know what it is yet…  I think its the ribbon….. I will figure it out today and replace the photo. Everything else is good. I love the Element of Style stamp from SU. They are so versatile. On the Bashful Blue cardstock the stamp looks vintage right?

JAI #39

Hello everybody, Gosh! I had one great weekend. Drove 700kms to Perth on Saturday morning, met with our family friend who had come from Adelaide. We had so much fun and yummy dinner. They had two kids who are in the similar age range as mine and so kids also had heaps of fun too. Then on Sunday went shopping and drove back 700kms again back home. I am so excited about driving for 400kms at a stretch while coming back. Athough I ended having a sore bum and back, I felt great. I can’t describe in words. I love driving, just my passengers get sick 🙂  Anyway, took a day to recover from the sore bum and back. oh! before I go over to my card for JAI! I should say, while shopping, I saw a beautiful blue heels in a shop at Perth. It was so beautiful with a large blue rhinestone that I sat just right opposite to the store with a cuppa and admired the heels while I slowly sipped the coffee. It was 15 minutes before my son discovered that I was admiring the heels instead of drinking my coffee lol! and then the rest of the family forced me to keep moving 😦 I so want that heels. I even dreamt of it last night 🙂 I have to ring my friend at Perth so see how much it costs and ….. (you know!)  I have weakness for shoes 🙂
So I ended up making the blue card for JAI still remembering the blue shoes. This week’s theme is Just Add….. Blue. This month is Anxiety and Depression Awareness Month. Isn’t is awesome for JAI team to do awareness challenges? Love love the idea!
Here is my card for the challenge.
I love damask and so I decided to use it for the background. The label dies are from Spellbinders and flowers are from PTI. Impressions on the card both the polka dots and the woodgrain are from PTI and so is the sentiment from PTI’s Flutterby stamp set.  Love the color combination. I picked it from  Moxie  Fab World’s Tuesday Trigger inspirational photo. Here is the photo for you.
Hope I am not too late for Tuesday Trigger challenge! Thanks JAI for the awareness challenge. I love it. Especially being a mental health professional, I am all for awareness for mental health. 
Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!


 Last night, while my husband was doing his tax returns, I made chirstmas tags 🙂 We share a room, he has his office on one end, my kids have their music instruments on another end and I take one whole side of the room for craft. We had good time talking and doing our own things. I made 3 sets of christmas tags. Here they are.




Aren’t they beautiful.I love the first one. That set came out really easy and look lovely. I love the blue ones for its colors and the traditional ones are traditional! lol! They are all up for sale. Email me if you are interested.

I have some new goodies and definitely have to play with it this afternoon. I also want to make a card for JAI’s depression awareness challenge.Beautiful challenges at JAI. So I will logg off now. Take care and have fun!
