  • The different shapes and sizes of  diecuts for the hearts.
  • The word stickers which are just perfect for the half banner
  • EK edge shaper gave a terrific look on the red check dp.

3Flower Pots for the Guest DT project.

Hello again my dear friends,

Truly, I was delighted by the turn out of such loving and concerned comments that came my way from all of you’ll for my ridiculously painful toothache episode. It really felt good to know, that I am not the only silly cow who frets and fumes over toothaches. This one being especially nasty since it was my wisdom tooth.

And guess what !!! It gives me immense pleasure to tell y’all that I have joined Clear It out challenge as guest design team member. Being a part of a team is always a special feeling for me. And to have my card featured on their challenge website is even more thrilling !!  I have designed this card with the theme in mind as per the challenge. I have used copics ie the first 4 that I bought yet !!!

I liked using the sentiment of “You are my Sunshine” for the 3 flowers potted in these cute dotted pots. Hence I have used a spotted DP too. 3 metallic butterfly charms and a ribbon knotted in the side. I hope I have done justice to the challenge. There are two different digital stamps here.The digital stamps of the flower pot is from Melon Headz.  The flower pot is repeated thrice while the sentiment is digitally stamped and die cut and layered over another larger diecut. Yes, plenty of layers in this card !

One thing I found strangely unique about this card is, that it can be gifted from a daughter/son to their mom or vice versa, or even from a husband to his wife or can be exchanged between best friends too !!

Here are the pics :

Yes, these are quite quite a few challenges, that my card will participate it. Lets hope I win some too.

I’d like to leave you with a quote that I often turn to. This quote inspires me, reminds me and humbles me.

“You are right where you Should be”.  

Life is a journey not a destination ~ we grow, learn, change and experience our entire life ~ it will only get as beautiful or difficult in proportion to the effort, compromises and sacrifises we put into it.  

Thank you very much my dear friends for taking the time to read my posts and leaving your comments. I look forward to each comment.

Regards

2 things first !!

1). How did you like the new look of the blog ?? Unfortunetly, WordPress does not have a whole lot of quirky, funky or scrapbooking related themes .. this was the closest I got. Love the faux stitch border though and the chocolate brown base color.

2). My husband is going to be operated upon on monday for complications in his remaining kidney so this may be my last post to you’ll for a week, begining Monday, hopefully, if all goes well, then we’ll be back home, and I’ll be posting more of my remaining projects here.

And this project is about : A girl child in my sons class in grade 3, has been the target of alot of indifference and verbal abuse. Sometimes, children can be cruel, they have not mastered the art of diplomacy like we adults have. They see what is real and can be candid and and sometimes very rude.  Manu says they dont talk to her, avoid her in the playground and dislike her for no “ACTUAL” reason. Having witnessed the same for Buddy and sawaabi, I know how this child must feel. There have been instances when  the teacher has  also been annoyed with her becoz she is slow.

I have been acquainted with her family. She is a pretty child, very shy, has a loud voice, speaks english with an asian accent. She yearns for acceptance and longs for someone to be a friend to her from what I hear of her from Manu.  Manu has seen how actively I was involved when his brothers were physically abused in their classes so he keeps wondering and asking me, why I wont do anything for this child.  Manu has been complaining about the treatment met out to her for nearly 6-7 months now.

I wish I could explain that these things are not as simple as this little chap of mine, thinks. They are so complicated. I really wish to help this little girl and I even briefly bought this to the notice of the child’s mother on sports day. Perhaps not as firmly as I should.

Ofcourse Manu, being how he is, has started paying more attention to her, and even baits his classmates to be nice to her, if he shares his lunch with them !

Before the holidays started, we made a pretty little frame for her. It read her name, and the digi stamp by Nikki, Melonheadz was the focus image of a cute little girl angel. (Does’nt she just make amazing digi stamps ???!) I maintained a very spring like feel to this frame so she could keep it for all the seasons.  A large diecut flower with a bright yellow button in the center and a couple of blue glittery butterlfies. Her name on some tags with polka dotted ribbons tied to it. And another lovely digi image of this really awesome sentiment saying “You are Special”

I stuck a note for her from me, telling her how “I” was so proud of her class achievements. We didnt want to address it from Manu, lest they misunderstand.

She was beside herself with joy. Manu was so glad and she kept showing everyone what Eman’s Mom had sent for her. Only problem now, is that He is being cornered for another few more frames for other friends !! Kids, I tell you !!!!! The biggest negotiators on earth !!

Tell me, how do you handle such a situation ? Talk to the parents ? Parents say she does not express herself easily ! Talk to teacher ? He’s going to wonder where ‘ I ‘  fit in the picture ?? Its difficult for me to sit back and do nothing. All children are different. Heck, I have three boys and each reacts in a different manner to a given situation. What do I do ? What would you suggest ?

Here is the picture frame, which is actually a recycled cardboard desk calender frame from 2 years back. Didnt want to dump it coz it never ever got used even when it had the calender stuck to it. Looks as good as new.

Here is that little gift that made the day of a little girl.

    Dear friends, I do hope you keep visiting me and perhaps leaving me a line or a note to tell me how you find my works. It really has such a healing effect.

    Kindly make a prayer for my darling husband who has endured so much thru out last year with his kidney cancer. He is my answered prayer ! He is such a blessing in all our lives. Please pray for him.

    With that note, I bid farewell.

    Much love,

    Naush

    God’s Plan.

    Hello ladies, Am so delighted that my recycled projects are being so appreciated. I feel a larger sense of accomplishment when one of those projects is completed and even more happier, when they are appreciated. Thank you so much ladies.

    I havent really been inspired enough to make cards past couple of weeks. But then, I just wished to use this sentiment for a card and found some similar sketches which it could fit. And now its here  !

    I have used yellow, 3 shades of purple, cream and a dot of green brads.  One element that I used after ages is the skeletal leaves. Love those leaves. Had picked them up in my trip to Malaysia, and oh btw, that is one huge haven for crafters !!

     This is a male oriented card again ~the color, the design, elements and embellishments. Scallops galore, love the look of the purple cardstock after being embossed {LOVE swirls}, the black and white colored ribbon & bow, was used to add alittle contrast to the card. The key and the lock are such cute charms, arent they ?  The sentiment is a digi stamp.

    This is one sentiment, very close to my heart. God has a plan for each one of us. But it is up to us to reach out and fulfill it. Unfortunetly, most of us, sit back and wait for things to “happen”. Does’nt work like that, does it now? Even if you want to win a lottery, you have to make that effort of going out to buy the ticket, isnt it ? 

    I am certain, this card will lift the spirits of the person receiving it. I know, coz I am a sucker for such senti cards 😉

    A warm goodbye from sunny Dubai 🙂

    My Pot of Gold.

    I think, every once in a while, we tend to reach a plateau in any creativity field. And ofcourse, most of the time, alittle challenge can get us motivated. This time, I was challenging  myself with several folds and features. A little if-she-can-do-it-why-not-me inspiration is really healthy and infact essential at times. This past weekend, I wanted to get out of my lazy couch and play with some magic. I tried out different techniques and different folds in card making. Sometimes, we get too hung up on the challenges scenario, that most cards get created solely for serving only one purpose. I wanted to break that mold ~ and break I have done !!! I have tried to create something I just felt like with elements and colors and features that I felt I wanted to add. I really hope you guys like it.

    Some of the objectives, I had in my agenda were, to try out spotlighting, (was’nt sure, I could do it, but I am pleased with the first times results) Joy fold card, Tag card, back fold card, gate card and a couple more. Over the week, I’ll keep adding them here. Please do revisit.

    I am really pleased with all of them but I want to get back to experimenting with more designs and added features. Ok, so thats that.

    This scarlet card is naturally for a daughter. Ofcourse an easel card in red base with some very pastel green and white swirls and flower designs in the pattern paper. The couch and the girl have been cut out and are a digi stamp. A ribbon, bow, metal heart, couple of brads and 5 gorgeous paper flowers complete this card. Border lace punch and a heart warming sentiment, “Daughter, You’re the end of my rainbow, my pot of gold.”

    I am a complete emotional fool and so I hear;  most creative people are !!! So the first time, I read this sentiment a couple of months back, I was really overwhelmed with a real maternal love for my boys. We really do tend to forget with the routine, school, soccer, house chores etc, how truly precious and valuable these little beings are. Really what matters most in life are not things but people. And at THAT, especially those we have bought into this world.

    There is one mother who will have moist eyes presenting this card to her prized child and one -young- very- pleased girl receiving this card. 

    I am so fortunate that I am involved in a field which is all about art and expressing feelings and bringing people closer. What say ??

    Proud of You 2.

    This card has only one theme in mind, to show how much you value that someone has tried or someone IS trying his best. Its really all about achievments in small or large doses or atleast getting there.

    It could be from a mom to a daughter or vice versa, again from daughter to dad, or between friends, collegues or relatives. Its not only about achievements like graduation or a job promotion but also really realizing that some one has been there supporting you and you wish to tell them just THAT ; that your proud of them 🙂

    Ofcourse I am back to my comfort zone of Pink with a large punch of red. The image as well as the sentiment are digi stamps and arent they just super cute 🙂  !! I have border punched both the outside edge and the inside too. Blue, pink and Red are predominently the colors here on this card except for what the senorita is wearing.  I have realized I have been coloring most of the girl hair images in orange. Is there something wrong with me or do I have a fetish for orange on girl heads 😉 I suppose its better that blue or even worse yellow … actually I think, I’ll try yellow in my next image 🙂

    The large die cut flower is so gorgeous. It is handmade paper and if you notice closely in the slide, you will observe how glittery this paper is.  A red button in the center and two pink and white flowers on either side. A red ribbon, and three glittery brads and voila we have a very happy girl/guy receiving this card.

    Swirls & a good friend.

    Hello Ladies, Hope you had a pleasent weekend. Me ? Yeah, it was pleasently creative. My mojo continues in full swing, gladly 🙂

    Amazingly again, last night was fruitful enough to keep me churning out another 6 cards, that is, till the wee hours of the morning ! Yes, Feel like I am on top of the world. Its been that good. This weekend, I had this urge not only to create cards for the challenges but also to experiment with different designs and textures. You’ll see the results in the following posts.

    This first card is really special to me. I think I would rate it a good 7/10 !! And that itself speaks volumes coz I really am, very critical about all my own projects. Nothing is really ever good enough for me, including my own handwritting. Thank God laptops and keyboards  🙂

    Like I always say, the simplistic designs are always the most attractive ones. This card is ideal for both genders although It does sport a large flower. Amazingly this card carries 4 differnt handmade papers. I have tried to take close up pics of the flower to get you to see the textures.  Remember, I told you about how I managed to open that new stack of handmade paper bought atleast a year or so before ?? Well, all this is spilling out from there.

    The ivory paper is embossed with swirls, the Flower itself has two different, thick paper diecut with a button in the center, a tag with a friendly message and two butterflies. How simple can it get ?? This simple 🙂  The card, itself, is in very pale ivory, white, and green tones, except for a little dash of red.

    This is a general card which you could present for valentines or an all-year-round-card for any friend/collegue/classmate/neighbour.

    Well, thats it. See you in a bit with the next project/card.

    Blessings & a light house .. .. ..

    Hello Ladies .. I am still continuing with the fourth card from my “Mojo Jolt” series. I am quite certain, I get possessed certain days of the week and the result of which are all these bits and pieces on these fabulous papers !

    Getting back with the lighthouse card, well, some cards just have a way of getting transformed themselves.  I feel most of the time, it is the pattern paper and the sketch that should get all the credit. This card is close to me becoz it has such a quiet charm and appeal.. The pattern paper is again from my GUILT TRIP.  The sketch is gorgeous and I have made a few alterations to house the ribbons here. 

    If you have read any of my previous posts, then you know, that I have a ‘thing’ for simplistic and clean looks. ( in terms of card making )

    Love this digi image and have used it earlier too. But it is just so versatile. It conveys a very strong image and can carry just about any sentiment with it. I have chosen “Count my blessings” on a tag. Since I love having tags somewhere/anywhere. I have used the eyelet to attach the tag to the diamond shaped image so actually, it can move around, upwards and downwards.

    Three tiny buttons with three ribbons. What is it with ribbons and buttons !! I am playing with reds and pinks for the first time and I was apprehensive in the begining but I am very pleased with the final look. Probably becoz the pink is full of strong tight patterns.

    The list is endless when it comes to who the recipient of this card could be. To a son, father, husband,brother ….. again, it could very easily be given to ladies as well. A sentiment like this on valentines would be so so ideal and ‘real’.

    I was inspired by the sketch from http://michelleperkettstudio.blogspot.com/ and ironically I was late in linking it to them and I missed the bus 🙂

    Truly Amazing !

    Somewhere last year, the owl’s were leading a riot. Everyone “WAS” crazy about them ! Me ? I still am crazy about them ! They are just so adorable. Perched up on a branch looking down sheepishly at the rest of us, having thoughts and opinions about the whole world ! No wonder so many disney productions portray them as the “Wisdom birds”.

    There is another sketch challenge at  krista-kris-challenges: with a similar sketch as my previous sketch from :  Priscilla styles.

    Since I loved this entire triangular division look, so much, I decided to make another one in similar design with different images and embellishments.

    The pattern papers are new from my “guilt trip” shopping spree. The flowers are also from a new buy. The tiny green flower is diecut with a button over it. There are four glittering brads to go with it.

    Imagine, what mom doesnt have her heart all melted up when she receives a card like this ??

    Truly amazing !! I like it 🙂
