I don’t believe there is a season for giving cards or that there should be a reason to share happiness.  This moment is NEVER returning ~ so why not share a message, a cake slice, a lollipop, or even a meal together and make this moment special.  Who needs a special day to show appreciation ~ show a little of it, everyday.

I am joining the following challenges to share this card :-

Challenges, Daughter card, Easel Card, Inspirational card, Shaped Cards

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 ??

Here is My Pot of Gold Card.

    Another fantastic sketch from Sketch Frenzy Friday at : http://sketchfrenzyfriday.blogspot.com/2010/12/sff122410.html

    Here’s the sketch :

    I loved keeping this card straight and non chaotic. Lots of symmetry was complimented by those little single flowers placed sideways to add a little dimension. The buttons too were only to add alittle color similar to the ribbon colors. And here’s my card :
