Something Happy

This time of my 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.

I just fell hook, line and sinker for Runway Inspired Challenge's inspiration this week. The fabulous colour combo and the lace detailing at the bodice is what drew my eye. Here's my card...

I traced the damask pattern from an old wedding invite. I decided to give my handwritten sentiment centre stage, so there is no image/embellishment. Tracing the pattern was a pain in the posterior but I think the effort was worth it.

Something Electrical

After all my whining here about the weather and absence of rains and all...I'm thrilled to say that it finally rained! In fact its raining as I write this! Maybe I did not go dance in the rain but I am enjoying the cooler weather a lot!
After the weather report, I guess I'll share the card for today I made for CASology's brilliant cue word this week : ELECTRIC(Seriously guys. HOW do you think the cues up?). After almost exclusively studying static and current electricity and also things like electromagnetism in Physics the previous year, my brain was buzzing with many ideas. But uncharacteristically I decided on a bit of a romantic card, here it is :

Have you ever been in love? I haven't. But from countless romances I've read (guilty confession :p)I am assured that is is a very electric thing. In fact whenever the hero and the heroine come in contact with each other they feel bolts of electricity shivering down their spine, or tingling the hairs at the back of their necks...or creating sensation in some *other* places...ahem. But I digress. What I meant to say that I wanted to convey some kind of attraction with these sparking hearts!
The hearts I cut by hand, wrote the sentiment and drew the sparks with glitter pen. I actually tried a feeble pun on the phrase "The start of something beautiful".

Thanks to Hazel for letting me know about CAS on Sunday! I hope this card qualifies for their current challenge as I've used a glitter pen!

As per Susan's suggestion also linking this to Moxie Fab World...
Thanks for reading, and happy crafting!

Something New

It's still unbearably hot and sultry in Kolkata, and my days are passing in a sort of lotus-eater's dream, as I am just waiting for my exam results*shivers*. I fervently wish we get some rain, and SOON. Or else we'll all melt in the heat. Imagine the city being flooded by a river of liquid Kolkatans! Now I am even talking like a lotus eater. Do I sound high? ;)
Well, today I am sharing something that's totally a new and foreign thing to me, and this is my first attempt. Mixed Media. Yup, you heard it right. After the wonderful inspiration which Shilpa and Yvonne come up with practically on a daily basis, I guess I felt the *urge*. So, here it is for you to judge...
