Hi there!

Dear bloggers,

I seem to be breaking my record for 2016 with my fifth post for the first time this year. Here is my card to show you today which is an anniversary card. The roses have been punched from Martha Stewart's punch on pearlized paper which was part of a wedding card in it's previous avatar. It is a border punch and I cut out the roses separately and stuck them on to the card stock. The sentiment has been hand written with my Sakura gel pen and the organza ribbon is from my stash and so is the pearl on the knot. The nestie with the sentiment has also been die cut from pearlized paper. This card looks pretty and elegant in real life many times more than the picture.


I will enter this in the following:

Happy crafting,

Back in a day

Hello sweet bloggers,

I have been making cards pretty regularly so am trying to keep up with blogging as well. Here is a card I made with a tag. And behind are leaves that are actually post its which were picked up at a garden shop. The little sentiment is store bought and that is pretty much it. I like the vibrant colours here and I am sure someone with a little boy would like it.

Birthday card

Hello lovely peeps,

It is summer holidays now and what a relief that is. Here is a card made with duct tape, yes duct tape that got stuck on my scissors and refused to get it's stickiness off them. Washi tape seemed like a breeze to put on and along came music signs. The sentiment is from Hero Arts and here is my card all ready and dressed up.


My mum was visiting from New Delhi and it was lovely to have her as she is a light and airy person (airy because she is pleasant company, lol). We went to the Botanic Gardens and down below are a few shots of the orchid garden.





Can you spot the chameleon in this picture? Now I have seen many such spineless creatures in my childhood as we lived in the midst of greenery in army cantonments yet the blues and greens in picture were the best colours I have ever seen. If my camera was better, it would have been even more impressive. 
Wish you a happy and healthy Sunday,

Monica

Recycled

Hello dear bloggers,

Here is my card to show you the image of which is from a box of tissue paper. I stuck washi tape over on top and bottom and an embossed sentiment came to my rescue as there was a stamping error hiding under it. It seems to show in the picture but in real life it has been nicely covered up.

More roses

Hello bloggers,

Here is a card made with packaging material and the striped paper behind is fancy gift wrap. I was thinking to myself that it is a better idea to buy a pack of designer papers instead of fancy gift wrap. Penny wise and pound foolish sometimes is me. The pearls here are from my stash and the happy birthday sentiment is a washi tape.


I will submit this card in the following challenges:

Happy crafting and happy blogging,
