Happy Birthday card

Hello sweet bloggers,

Here is a card that Aleeza die-cut using a new die we bought over Amazon (for a fraction of the price I would have paid in a store here) and she used Pentel watercolour tubes to colour the flowers, leaves and borders. She said she found the border quite tedious to colour in. I stuck it over cardboard squares instead of double-sided foam dots to make it environment friendly. A pink ribbon saying happy birthday was tied over the rectangular nestie to complete the picture. I quite like this shabby chic kind of card.



I will submit this card to the following challenges:

Happy card making,

Monica

Thank You card by Aleeza

Hello dear bloggers,

Here is a card to show you today which was made a month ago. The green and gold effect was done Aleeza with a sponge. She basically used the leftover acrylic paints from a canvas to get this effect. 
I quite like how it turned out and the thank you sentiment was die cut after Aleeza went over a packaging sheet with Mala gold colours. There were some telltale signs on the white parts of the paper so I stuck rhinestones to cover it up. 



Down below is the room where I held the meditation sessions in school yesterday. There is a plaque which says, 'The purpose of our lives on this earth is to be happy' - by Dalai Lama. I am trying to learn that!!! Lol.
We had our first session for the second term and it went pretty well with a turnout of 10-11 people. We did a fun introduction of ourselves without talking of our children or our work followed by a guided meditation and we read randomly from inspiring books. 
It was fun and we did some more meditation. In the end, we watched a ted talk on slowing down which was quite interesting. 




I will participate in the following challenges with my card:

Thank you for reading and happy card making,

Partly recycled

Hello bloggers,

I have good news to share. Today my initiative hosted a meeting wherein I conducted a meditation and a speaker came to talk about essential oils and their therapeutic benefits. Tomorrow begins my second programme for meditation and relaxation in school for the parents.

Here is my card to show you today which has been upcycled using a chocolate packaging. The orange dots are shiny in real life. The hand made papers are leftovers from a larger sheet. The sentiment is a die-cut and I have put a rhinestone over the i of smile to jazz it up.



I will enter this card in the following:

Happy crafting,
