Handmade Greeting Cards in Dubai 1

valentines cards in Dubai

For the next fourteen days, I will be sharing one of my handmade greeting cards with you everyday !!

Beginning with :-

26

25

24

23

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 :-

Saturday

Friday

Thursday

Challenges, Friendship cards

Friends and flowers.

Dear friends,

First off, I am so so happy to be back and connect with all of you’ll.

I know, I have been neglecting this blog for a couple of months but with good reason, I promise.

Not only the scores of restoration projects in the house but also in the courtyard and garage kept my hands full ~ literally ~ of spray paint and acrylics.  And then ofcourse, November/December are my peak months for craft classes as well as fairs. I have totally enjoyed the 6 fairs I participated it back to back thru out December ~ not to mention the greeting card orders that kept coming my way, until I had to stop being polite and refuse some of the orders. Ok so noooooow, I can hear some of you asking, how did I manage to stuff so many projects at one time ! Well, there you go ! Now you understand why this lovely blog, was being so neglected. Having said that, I now have heaps of projects to share with you’ll.

Well, for one thing, my newest best-est friends are power tools ! Yes, I mean, the electric jigsaw, sander and drill machine. Since almost two months, I have been having a complete blast chopping wood, sanding the pieces and drilling holes in them. I have been making wooden plaques and I just cant begin to tell you just how much fun it has been playing with paints and patterns. I have heaps of projects to show you but thats ofcourse for a later post. Again, I hear you, asking me, how I had the time to get involved in a new hobby !! Well, what can I say ??? Thats Naush for you. When the going gets tough, I get so enthused about trying out so so many creative avenues. To be very honest, I think, its  abnormal raging hormones ! 🙂

This new year brings with it a promise ~ a promise of change. Whether a change is for the good or for the worse is for time to prove and our own attitudes to see the glass half empty or half full.  But I have always felt, change, especially when it is not gradual, is always for the best and its easier to adjust. I look forward to making a few crucial decisions and I look forward to a few crucial decisions made FOR me by the Almighty.  And I totally look forward to making more and more new friends.

For some of you wondering, how come, I dont reply in the comment column. ~ well, I actually do. I write back personal messages to the person concerned on their email address which is supplied while she leaves a message for me.  These comments are very close to me and are food for my creativity.  You guys who visit me so often and leave so much love behind are priceless for me. Honest.

I had to submitt around 80+ new cards for samples and I wished to share some of the surplus designs that I had made in the past 2-3 weeks.

This card here, has such gorgeous colors. Nothing like the green grass and being sourrounded by spring flowers and jewelled butterflies. The cute angel mom/lady tending to her garden is a digital stamp from my dear friend Nikki of Melonheadz. The ribbon is one of my newer additions and so is the Martha stewart border punch. Awesome heart warming sentiment which is digi stamp cut by oval diecut.  I know, this could also be an ideal valentines card, which is just around the corner.  Imagine receiving such a lovely message from a friend.

Here is the card :

Love Message 4~ with all my heart.

One Card ~ 4 challenges !! wow. thats a first for me 🙂

‘I love you with all my heart’ is a free digi stamp. I know I should start owing up to the digi making blogs owners that really help the likes of me, with all their goody freebies. So from today, I am going to try and find those lovely invisible friends who have so generously donated their digi stamps to us.  I’d really like for them to know how grateful I am for their gorgeous images and fantastic talent. Perhaps I will make a seperate post to name some of their sites once I have located them.

This card is entering 4 card challenges:

1)  http://ccmonthlychallenge.blogspot.com/2011/01/challenge-8.html

2) http://fridaymashup.blogspot.com/2010/12/mashup-25-sweet-on-hearts.html  ~~ valentine theme with hearts and red/pink/blue/yellow colors.

3) http://sketchandstashchallenge.blogspot.com/2011/01/sketch-n-stash-challenge-52.html ~~ newest/neglected elements/paper.

Playing with Polka dots is fun but can be challenging especially if its red, which in many cases, it is generally. I have used two cute glittery hearts which I have had for long but used it twice today!  a satin checkered ribbon which has been lying around my stash like forever , and an embossed green base for the sentiment oval. All in all, did not want to experiment much becoz I wished the focus to remain on the sentiment and beside which the polka dots are very dominating in the entire card. So Voila !

Cute Mouse Birthday Wishes

 

It was slightly difficult for me to work on what the two colors and card patterns would be. In the end, it is predominantly orange, purple and green.

The digital mouse is super cute. Just love him carrying all those presents.

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.
