Black and White

Hello bloggers,

Here is a quick card to show you made with a background stamp by Penny Black which was bought . This is frugal crafting for sure but the card looks lovely in real life. Ribbon and a few pearls and it was all done.
There is a lot going on here which I will share in a few days.

Till then, enjoy my card and accept my apologies for not being regular with blogging.


Wish you a very happy weekend,

Monica

Blue is the colour

Hello sweet bloggers,

Here is a card to show you made from a stencilled image which has been sponged in with TH distressed ink and has been glittered following which I added a little centre on each flower with stickles. I finished it off with glossy accents and it looks really pretty in real life. The bow had to be added to cover a faux pas.



Below is a picture of our Mother's Day lunch celebration at an Indian restuarant. My mum is visiting for a few days...



Wish you a happy day,

Monica

What, wine again?

Hello kind people,

Here is a card from me made in a jiffy but looks nice, doesn't it? The first picture has been taken without a flash and the second one is with a flash. Since colouring is something I am still getting better at, I thought of using my Sakura silver gel pen. The image is from Hero Arts and  the sentiment stamp was bought at The Range in the UK this summer ( apologies that I am unable to recall the name). 




Wish you a happy and healthy week ahead,

Monica

Hello, I am back

Hello sweet peeps,

Life got in the way again but here I am again with a simple beauty made with the stuff lying around on my table. The image is a rub on sent by Lynn and the ribbon and sequins are from my stash. I have used sparkly stickles for added interest and you can see them on this lovely creature too. The white nestie was sent to me by Shirley-Anne. Thank you for your kindness in every which way.


Will try and catch up later,

Monica

Coffee anyone?

Hello sweet peeps,

Here is a card to show you today with a clear stamp from Kaiser Craft which I did touch up with my Prisma pencils. It could have been given livlier treatment considering all those ribbons and the coffee beans. But Zeenya liked it so I am pleased.


Wish you a happy Tuesday,

Monica

For CAS(E) this Sketch - partly recycled

Hello sweet bloggers,

Here is my card to show for the sketch at CAS(E) this Sketch. I have used an Oil of Olay packaging box to die cut the circles and buttons alongwith a hand written sentiment. 








Wish you a calm, healthy and relaxed weekend,

Monica

A sweet and simple card

Hello sweet bloggers,

Here is a card that I helped Aleeza to put together for her lovely teacher. She chose the checkered paper saying her teacher would like them and we chose matching heart stickers to go along and thought jute string would add character to our sweet creation. Apologies for the shadows on the picture. This paper was what I won in Terry's blog candy just when I started blogging.



Here is the message, Aleeza wrote inside the card which touched her teenage sister so much that I had to share it with you. The last line reads,"Actually you are as sweet as chocolate."


Wish you a happy Sunday,

Monica
