  2. I believe whatever happens is for a reason
  3. I am sensitive.
  4. I believe that after every good ,bad follows, so afraid whenever good happens to me.
  5. I don't plan for future as we don't know what happens next minute.
  6. I learnt carnatic music for 7 years but never tried to give exam.
  7. I try not to get so much attached to any type of relationships. 

I don't know whether i can write these things about myself or we should write only about crafts. I don't want to do any more delay in writing this post.

My son's Guest book

Hi all

Made a Guest Book for my son's 3rd Birthday. Only after his 2nd birthday i came into this craft world and found so many new things. I used the echo park paper won in soumya mohanty's celebrations last year. i will search for the link and edit it again. Thankyou very much and loved the pattern papers and stickers. Happy Birthday stickers are sent by shalini mittal again in fb status sharing  giveaway. Thanks shalini i liked all the ones you sent,cannot wait to use the other stickers you sent. Letters of Pradyumna and APR are handwritten and cut from foam which are not that perfect. I used the buttons to put number 3 sticker and RD like 3rd . His theme this year is sheep so quilled the sheep and used some stickers . Doily is sent by ICR.
I made this one out of cornflakes cardboards.
His birthday is on 18thAPR but only today we had arranged a party at hotel as today is our 6th anniversary too.  Had a nice time with friends. Took the signatures from all of my friends and this one is the most memorable one though i had made a simple chart with photos and took the signs on that from past 2yrs.
Hope you all like my first attempt with proper pattern papers. 
thanks for inspiring.

PPS inspired card

Here is the card i made for PPS first birthday Blog hop  challenge.
I took the inspiration from Susan Renshaw's triple layer stamping. chosen by donna

I don't have any big stamps which cover the three cardstocks except the love shape with a rose on it and a butterfly so tried with those only. Coloured with water colour pencils and used stickers for love shape and ribbons. Made centre flower with daisy punch and coloured rhinestone in the middle. Hope you like my first attempt.

Recycled card

Hi all,

Made a card yesterday after a week.  I have been busy with my son's school, 3days a week and birthday parties during weekends. Only yestarday i got sometime when i had tried something new to me. I have seen this in pinterest. Its a shaving cream technique. I have created a background with shaving cream and food colour mixed with water as i don't have any inks. I have used the colours from Itsy bitsy color challenge
Its one of my favourite combination colours .  I had used a tag from jeans. I did't get chance to take the pic of only the shaving cream technique background. hope you can see it properly, it is very good in real. I used the sketch from  case this sketch 22
Added the quilled flower to the tag.Used washi tape under the tag to follow the sketch. I stamped the pattern on the card and coloured with water colour pencils. I learnt the combed leaf from  here, she is a wonderful quiller.  Finally added the ribbon to the tag.
