Baby girl card

Hello bloggers,

Hope you all are well and enjoying summer...I have been missing blogging like crazy.

I have been so busy of late - going through a turbulent phase! 
But I trust the Universe will guide me through this.
Here is a card I made for my first cousin in New York who delivered a baby girl a few weeks ago.

Hope you like my creation - Zeenya was suitably impressed and so was my mum who is visiting. 
Both Zeenya and Aleeza have summer holidays and we are having a relaxed time at home... it is nice to just stay put for a change. 
We did go to the Animal Safari last week ( a two and half hour drive from home) and it was a great experience for Aleeza who loves animals. Will try and post some pics next time.

Took Aleeza for her swim class which she thoroughly enjoyed... thank God for that because she can be so darned adamant sometimes!!! 

Will come and visit soon... still trying to get my computer sorted.

Crafty hugs,

DT card for Unstampabelles

Hello lovely bloggers,

This is my card for the DT post for Unstampabelles, the monthly challenge being Ribbons.
There are great prizes to be won - do go and check it out for yourself.

Great prizes to be won which are being sponsored by Beth of 

On my card I have used three dimensional stickers and the ribbon and pearls are from my stash...

I am sad to say that I have decided to step down from my DT post with Unstampabelles...
However I have to add that it was lots of fun for me and it made me think out of the box. 

School holidays begin this weekend... I am looking forward to lots of bonding with my girls. 

Will catch you later.

So happy to blog again...

Handmade cards with love:
Hello lovely bloggers,

Hope you are well and having a decent weekend... 
I have been a bit slow with blogging as I have been a bit caught up with life.
On the positive side, I managed to pull myself out of my hectic schedule to go for a spiritual retreat and it was one of the best things that happened to me. I felt as though I was on cloud nine! Wish I could stay in that mode forever... try I will for sure.

Now to my card - the flowers and butterflies are from Petaloo (bought at the scrap booking store) while the paper is from my fave book store. 
All the different circles you see were actually used for another card but I made a card with the left over cardstock.  I stuck  pink card inside and stuck the flower, butterfly and paper on it. Added some pearls on the paper to make it look more interesting. Looks quite elegant, don't you think?

Will come and visit you soon... 

Thanks for all the blog love, what would I do without it, I wonder?
