I am back with great news!

Hello sweet bloggers,

Yes, I was missing again and this time it was on a week's vacation to Sydney, Australia. I felt the energy much better this time around even though one evening was quite an experience when Aleeza and I got chased away by a "not so normal" person. Apart from that, it was mostly sunny skies and lovely time in the Royal Botanic Garden and just walking in the city. I also managed to visit the "Mind, Body and Spirit Festival" and bought amazing rose quartz tea light holders and a salt lamp. 

Now for the good news - as I was surfing Facebook, I stumbled upon a not for profit page called, 'Women on a Misson Singapore'. And I sent them a random Facebook message about making cards for charity. The lady there (who seemed a very nice person) got back to me in no time suggesting I could partner her and make cards for their big event on November 18th. This is an organization where the ladies go on serious expeditons and raise funds for women's charities. So to cut a long story short, I am doing a range of cards for them with a theme on Siberia as that is where their next expedition is.

I am very excited to say the least! Now the real work begins which is to make 40-50 cards before November 18th.

Below are two cards that I made yesterday they were quite appreciated by the team at WOAMS. So off I am...




Down below are pictures of Sydney - as you can see, I have great modelling there after a long walk from our hotel to the garden. The girls would rather be shopping but their father insisted they take some fresh air.



More happy pictures - they seem pretty done with the long walk. Lol.

Mushrooming back!

Hello sweet bloggers,

Thank you for the comments on my last card and here is another card to show you which is totally hand drawn and coloured with Aleeza's Crayola water colour paints. Of course it was copied from a book and Aleeza did her share of art with me which you will find below. We did have lots of fun doing it together.



This is Aleeza's version of the mushroom.

I tried to be creative with the picture here

Hello dear bloggers,

Here is my card to show you today which has been stencilled with distress inks followed by Prisma pencils. I stuck printed paper (sent my dear Terry) on the entire card and also distressed around the image with a blue American Craft ink pad. The tiny flowers on the branch are from my stash - bought from an art and craft place called, "Something Special".  



Happy crafting,

Monica

Hello, do you still remember me?


Hello sweet bloggers,

It sure seems a long while and gosh, I have been busy. Volunteering in school and trying to go about life to the best of my ability. Lol.
On the good side, I have been able to craft more often which is wonderful, isn't it? 

Here is my card to show you for today which gave me much pleasure.  New Washi tape and the 3D flip flops I have had since over a year along with a double layered sentiment die cut out of an old Indian wedding card. Now if you ask me about Indian wedding cards, I could write a book on this oh so vast topic. They are as elaborate as weddings themselves and their designs are fit for kings and queens. Honestly, sometimes I feel proud and at other times sad because in a poor country such as India it makes me wonder, why? Then wisdom prevails and I say to myself, "who am to judge"? Let each one be. Lol.




I will submit my happy chappy card in the following challenges:


Wish you art in plentiful,

Monica
