Inspirational card, Something inbetween

Make Your Happiness !

This next card is something I made purely from experimentation.  Have had this stamp for so long. The image is so versatile. You can use it for male oriented cards, for the elderly , for formal cards like in the office, sympathy cards. It is only limited by our own imagination.

This card is inspired by the challenge over at Little Red Wagon  : to made a single layer card. Instead of using water paints or acrylics which I would generally, I opted for sponging pigments. I wanted to keep it as simple and clean so I have not overwhelmed the image or the background.

 A very inspirational sentiment. ” Make your own happiness ” which again can be interpreted into several thoughts.

I came up with a couple :

Today is precious, Make your own happiness today.

Dont wait for anyone to make it happen, make your own happiness.

Find happiness everywhere in everything …

and ofcourse I’m sure there are many more….. If you do come up with any, please enlighten me too.

This here is the second card that was completed last night. Love the prints, colors and stripes. That owl has been embossed and sitting there for quite sometime now 🙂  Finally he has found his place !

I feel it is simplistic but elegant card and I hope you like it.

Baby Arrivals, Challenges

Precious Child

Its been quite some time since I made one of those baby cards that I enjoy making so much so much. Probably the most important period of a woman’s life. And nothing compares to what she feels when she holds those tiny feet in her hands for the very first time. But you all know that already any ways.

So I thought a bright pink and blue in various shades would do some justice to the very cute tiny baby embellishments I have.

The super cute sketch is from : skipping Stones at :

My Favorite Stores in Dubai

My Favorite stores in Dubai~1.

Due to the wonderful holidays in Dubai and the fact that for once in the last decade we are finally celebrating the winter break her in Dubai, I wanted to share with you’ll some amazing stores in Dubai that I love to visit.  You’ll find they stock up some super duper items of aesthetic and functional values.

The first store for todays post is a store called : Little Luxuries. Like the name suggests, it has a whole lot of goodies for gifts and presents. Indeed you could be gifting yourself as well. Although their prices are alittle on the higher end, it will be well worth a visit and you can decide then. Meanwhile let the photographs speak for themselves.

Hope you found these pics interesting and worth popping over for. They are located in Jumeriah Center at the ground level, on the Jumeirah Beach road. This is the mall on your left side just alittle after Mercato if you are coming from satwa.

Blog Candy

Blog Candy !!

I must admit it ~ I am fan follower of a very few crafty friends. Who probably dont even know me !!  Some I found, becoz their cards and projects just blew me off and some coz their tutorials were super cool and some, well some although very very few of them, I found becoz their blog candy was super fantastic and I got greedy 😦  !

A thought : If you are a craft artist, scrapbooker, rubberstamp enthusiast or a card maker, have you ever noticed why most of us write in our profiles, that we are married to ‘ a most wonderful husband ‘ 

Somehow the one thing that binds us ‘sisters’ together is not only the fact that we possess ridiculously creative genes but also that we have been blessed with husbands who are supportive.  Imagine, how it would be for a female, who is oozing with creativity but has a husband who holds her back from time in the craft studio or she does not even have tools or even worse, she does not even have access to a computer !! Gosh that would be …… “fatal” 😦

I feel, most of us, prosper and enjoy our art, mainly becoz we have got the encouragement from our spouces. They are cooperative, they adjust, they let us shine in our achievement when we are chosen as a member of a DT or when we have won a card challenge or even won a blog candy. They dont take our tapping keys on the keyboard at odd hours, very seriously or imagine what we’d be doing ???

Scary thought !! Lets not go there. Instead, I wish to take you guys to a excellent place !!

Please visit my friends as they are giving us a chance to win their blog candy !! Holy Molly how do they do it ??? How can they be so generous ?? Could I EVER part from such delicious candy ?? Not a chance !!

Cupcakes & sweetness

Had never tried this orangish / blue combination and strangely I fell in love with the manner in which they compliment eachother. The cupcakes are digital stamps. The message too. Hope you like it.

I am entering this card for the card challenge at : inspirations challenge no:51

following is their sketch.

Birthday Cards, Birthday Cards Feminine

Cake and the window.

Its strange, how I can talk for hours together on different subjects ( almost like a chatterpox ) … If some one was to show me his/her art, I could go on and on, appreciating his skills if I geniunely liked it.  But somehow I fail to have much to say about my own creative expressions. I suppose, I’ll let the card do all the talking.

I like this card, its a very feminine kinda card.
