Face Qibla.

Hello friends.

It feels wonderful being back after my Ramadhan break.  I am grateful to be alive, in good health and happy to be able to fill you up with my creative endeavors.

Today I am sharing a simple plaque.  The message is the focus, and the message is deep ~ hence I did not want to add any fancy embellishments to distract the essence of this quote.

The definition of Qiblah is the direction of the Kaaba (the sacred building at Mecca), to which Muslims turn to, at prayer.

Muslims all over the world, pray towards the Kaaba, five times a day.  However the meaning of this quote is far deeper than that.

Ms Fashionista ~ Wall hanging.

I’m going to turn 40 this July but I am still a real sucker for anything girly, swirly, flowery, blingy and just plainly “pink”. I know, by now, I should start telling myself to grow up and grow up  old gracefully but nah, I think, I wanna hang onto this very flirty bright colored feeling. Its so cheerful and probably comes naturally to women anyways.

This wall hanging is also a part of the Trash to Wall hanging series. I know your wondering, how many more have I stamped out !! Answer : MANY. lol  To get the full story of what the base of this frame is and how I procured it. Please visit here.

This plaque/wall hanging carries true spring colors ! Aquamarine base, green, pink,and yellow colors. The dress is a glorious digi stamp !! Oh my !! When will I ever be able to fit into something like that ?? Ah Like Never !!!! 😦  The three fabric purses are one of my favorites too with the tiny flower brads  embellished over them. I have had this tiger print ribbon stacked somewhere in the draw for  like forever and never created such a bold card/creation which called for it. I think, its looking awesome against the blue backdrop. You would think, so many colors just dont fit together in the color wheel and yet somehow, when you piece them, they just tie in beautifully.

One thing I realized is that I have totally gone addicted to destressing any and all my projects. Its fun, it leaves a lovely look and feel to the projects and I think, It also helps kill the empty look of a border.

Incase you havent noticed, there is this really cute butterfly charm tied to the ribbon. Ofcourse the highlight is the sentiment. Such a dashing and bold statement. Love it completely.

    Thats it for now. For all of you, who are going to be graced by the beautiful and colorful, spring. Have a fantastic time enjoying this precious time. And for those of you who are still stuck in the snow, like my cousins in Canada, please remember to still be thankful that your blessed with snow and not a tsunami. Please keep the people of Japan in your prayers and lets hope for the best for them.
