Hello everyone...

Finally a nice and bright afternoon with no rain ;-)... it is a good break to have a dry day in the midst of the monsoons. I'd been out shopping... yeah, lucky me!! since I am a SAHM I do get to shop in the afternoons LOL!

A couple of projects I worked on yesterday...

The first one is a card for the Color Throwndown # 100 (do check out the blog! they have loads of prizes up for grabs!). Well, the colors were a little bit of a challenge for me. But my son (for whom I made this card) loved it so I'm glad ;-).. I've been wanting to make a kids card for a while now... can you believe it - in spite of having a 3 year old son, I have not really made many kids cards!! Anyway, hoping that this is the start I need.

The 'Sweet' sticker was a RAK from Tanjaa. All other stickers are local buys. The flowers on the left corners are pink (they don't look pink in the pic, I know).

My other creation is inspired by Juhi . I love love love her albums, maze books, tags... in short all her work! She shared a link for this creation with me... Thank you soooooooooo much Juhi!! And I love how it has turned out:

A handwritten message and a placeholder for a photo.

I loved the green paper pleated flower though disaster did strike it once ;-)

A lovely sticker with a pullout tag... perfect for a friend's secret :-p

I loved all the distressing and how it has turned out overall. I'll be giving this to my sister-in-law who has a loooong list of friends (and she is still in college) and I guess she'll use it well :-))
