Just the most simplest card. I think stamping and coloring is turning into therapy for me. Gives me lot of satisfaction. I'll be doing more cards this week I think.

this card uses a modified sketch from Angel (angelosity)

I 'll do another card based on the exact sketch sometime in the week. Its fun to have so many sketches when you want to make a card!

Merry Christmas.
Will be back after Christmas eve...

New card

First and foremost, I have to say "THANK YOU" to Michele.. She is one generous lady. When I cribbed and cribbed that I did not have many stamps she wrote back that she had lots and could send me some. And true to her word, I just got a Priority Box full of wood mounted stamps!! And they are amazing! I was so speechless when I got the box, right now more than me my brother's having a blast with it. Ink it up, stamp it down..for no reason at all..just that they're cute!!
I'm still stumped at trying to find something to send to Michele. Not papercrafting stuff..
I really appreciate her generosity..Thank you once again. I'll try to put up a pic soon of all the stamps she sent me.

Hmmm... now this is the first time ever that I tried to wrap a candy! No one over here wraps candy...just gift it off. I have been watching Nichole Heady create amazing gift wrappers one after another and I was stunned. I tried my hand at it. Nothing fancy mind you..just simple stamping on the CS and when I was done, it looked great! This is a Cadbury's Dairy Milk.

And here is a card I made using one of the stamps Michele sent me. And I loved watercoloring it. I guess I'm behind times, still with water colors, but then again, that's all I have and I'm loving it.. Shivani (my only Indian stamping buddy and addict, we're both always on the lookout for who's coming back to India from the USA so we can bribe, beg or blackmail into bringing us some stamping goodies!!!!) Well, she got Copics, her wonderful sistah got her 46 copics.. Awesome.

So here's the card..

I tried to copy the coloring on the stamp itself. The pink base looked dull so used my texture plates to give it some swirls. Boy! it is hard work if you don't have a cuttlebug. But still worth it.

Till then,
Happy Holidays!!

A new criss cross

Here's the card that took me 5 days to make. Don't ask me why! My creativity is at its lowest right now. Inspite of having 3 stacks of DP i can't seem to use them.

So just used my newest Sassafrass Lass stamps, the fliparoo stamps. Too cute and I love the acrylic. It's great. Takes in ink very well. Will be ordering more..

The DP is from Nichole Heady's Digital kit. love that paper.

And the sentiment is a outline sticker.

I hope the person i'm sending it to, likes it too. I wanted to something very very special, so my dear friend this has my 5 days of effort. I do hope you like it. I'm not tell who this is going to!!

I normally don't do this but right at this moment i'm going thru a crisis and words of kindness and encouragement from across the globe made my day. Just random words, from strangers but yet who connected with me, helped me get through this. And so as my way of saying thank you i'm passing on my happiness to Gina.
