Made my day !

Again another card where I worked from front to back deciding which colors, I wanted to overlap with the border punches. Usually I would never mix these colors, especially the textured purple with marroon. But I liked the effect and so it is. The coloring of the pooch could have been better, unfortunetly I dont own any copics, which I hear off so much ! I have seen some phenomenal copic tutuorials and It is there right on top in my wish list ! 

This card is especially dedicated to all those lovely folks who pass by my site and leave some love behind with their comments. For someone who is far away from where the “REAL” action is taking place (US,Europe,Australia), lil ol’ Dubai does not have a large ring of card makers like there and therefore, getting some appreciation from ya’ll really makes my day. Thank you all again so much.

I am entering this card for the card challenge at : card patterns at :        and the sketch is as follows :

This here is my take on this sketch. I dont generally like to drift afar from the original sketch as it is quite evident in almost all my cards that enter the card challenges.

Pot full of posies… for a card challenge.


A very simple card.  I only had to work on the coloring details of the flowers and the rest was just so easy to match with a green patterened paper. Love the flow of this card. Simple and Elegant ~ Leaves ample space to decide what thoughts you want to use it for. The challenge mentions a criteria that there should be use of gems,  therefore I have placed mine on the corners of the card.

I know it wasnt the sandwich ~! Coffee has stopped kicking me so I guess, its got to be the fact that I have stopped one of my medicines. What ? you ask ? Well. I cant believe just how pepped up I was today ! Oh yah, maybe it could also be that we have a fantastically long weekend here in Dubai, thats taken off the pressure off my shoulder and thats why I managed to make not one, not two but F I V E cards, and gorgeous, if I may say so myself. I am oh so pleased with all five of them. I am going back to the ” card challenge” arena after a very very long time and this time, I hope I make some good friends too. So without much ado, here they are, Just for the benefit of the “challenge thingy” I will be placing them in 5 different posts. Please do go thru each one of them for closeups.

Collage Card MOJO110.

blog h1 025I found myself really challenged over this card and for some reason it took almost 2 hours to decide what colors and designs I wanted to play with. Although I work best under pressure. Today was an awfully sad day. Bilal is unwell and I am almost pissing in my pants in anticipation of his blood results. which will take 5 days. I took nearly 3 breaks from the session just to check on him, which I wouldnt do ordinarily. Why do I have such fantastic kids, even in sickness, they want to please me !! I am really emotional today. Maybe its my hormones, having a salsa today !!

I’m including this card for the papertake weekly challenge too for the theme Spots and Stripes.  Incidently that is my favorite combination.  Lets see how I fair there.

Anyways here’s the end result of the challenge image of the card. Nothing like a beautiful collage of colors, patterns and h1 024Mojo110Sketch

Friendship cards

This card was specially made for the papertake weekly challenge. I am really enjoying these challenges. Having a sketch on you makes designing so convenient.  (Like I always say ) Anyways, Hope it is liked.
