Flowery Congrats

A very big hello to all my readers and crafting friends. The monsoon is still absent from the shores of the Bay of Bengal(and consequentially from Kolkata too, where I live)  but it is storming and thundering every day so I guess its not too bad. The days are hot, humid and sunny...it is impossible sometimes to muster the willpower to get off that posterior. I have been doing a host of things to while away the time...learning French and doing calligraphy are some of the things I do other than crafting.

I have been obsessed with stencils of late. As I own remarkably few of them, I have been forced to entirely hand draw and cut my own. But I always have a wonderful feeling when I remove the stencil and reveal the wonderful pattern underneath. It's like magic to me!

I had to create daisy stencils in two different sizes for this card. I created a wedding card keeping CSCC#4 in mind. I also tried to use the colours from Cosmic Colours#2.
I think the sentiment looks like calligraphy...the practising is paying off!

Thanks for reading, and happy crafting!

My First Layout

Yes, I have finally succumbed to the scrapbooking bug...I'll share my first layout with you guys today.

I started with an old photo of my Ma. I really love this photo of hers because she is smiling so fully, without anything held back, without any artifice.  Anyway, it was just lying about, not even in a proper album so I decided to create my first LO with it.

Windows With Faux Stained Glass

Today I am going to share an altered project with you crafty people! Its actually a window I created on the lid of a box...I was totally inspired by Kirsty's take on the Lessology challenge.

Something Happy

This time of my life...post my schooldays and final exams and before college...people say there will be no other time in my life like this. There is no great pressure, either in studies or otherwise. You don't feel guilty when you're reading a book or crafting or simply lazing about. As my results had been declared, my spells of sudden panic attacks have also melted away. I am excited about college and a new era of my life but I plan to enjoy these last few days too. I am in quite an optimistic frame of mind these days, and my card for today is all about my feelings...

Back Again

I was absolutely cut off from blogger for the past few weeks! Today I viewed my bursting dashboard and felt so strange! I was even pleasantly surprised by a win in CSCC#3, which was completely unexpected. I will try to get back to the posts of my blogger friends soon because honestly I don't even know what lovely creations I've missed out on!
First of all I'd like to share some news. My 10+2 level exam(ISC) results came out recently(remember about all the exams I'd been whining about in the past?) and I totally exceeded my expectations! In a very happy state of mind as a result! Hopefully I'll be able to get into the college of my choice!
Now on to today's card. I've made this for one of my closest, oldest and dearest friends and she's like a big sister to me. This is for her birthday, which was a few days back.

Gold Miner Card

For those of who read my previous post, you will know what I'm talking about when I say that my mother has forgiven me! She even cooked some really yummy chicken yesterday as a treat! Incidentally, that's the dish she cooks best. My mouth is watering as I write this... :D
Today I made a very simple card. I just drew a little gold miner inspired from a computer game I used to play and wrote the sentiment. I coloured the miner using my watercolour pencils and voila! the card was done!

A perfect card to give to a friend, on any occasion. This is absolutely my type of card!
Playing this along with CASology and CSCC#3(jeans, black belt, shirt colour from brick wall, shoe colour from tie).

Thanks for reading, and happy crafting!

Mother's Day

So here is the card I came up with for this mother's day. Its become more than just giving a card because currently, she's really pissed at me! We quarrelled yesterday on a MOST trivial topic and I've noticed that the loudest quarrels always stem from the stupidest things. Don't you agree? I hope she is blown away by the supposed loveliness of the card and forgives me on the spot.
