Our Sponsors for this week is Floppy Latte with 10$ voucher for their store and Love's Rubberstamp with a 10$ voucher for their store.

This is what I did based on the theme ...have a look..

 This is my second attempt with an Easel card ....again a circular one!!!

Closer view of the top you see that bow!!! okie let me confess...I am damn bad at bows and this one is a faux bow I saw on youtube....I love the way it turned up and this is surely an apt way to do up my projects ....yayayya...

Recipe Challenge at Incy Wincy

My stint with Incy Wincy ends with this challenge....I could not believe that an entire month just went by almost seems it was a matter of last week that Chris contacted me to be a GDT at Incy Wincy...I was not only happy but honoured to be offered this post and that too for a month!!!

I have loved each and every challenge that they have come up with and working on them has been a real fun roller coaster ride for me....from thinking of ideas to executing those ideas and realising in the middle that some things need to be altered in order to get the best results!!! Its been a truly enriching learning experience for me as a Crafter...Okie I guess enough of emotional out-pour has happened so lets get on with the task at hand....

This week at Incy Wincy we have a RECIPE challenge- 4 different papers, 3 brads, 2 ribbons and 1 image.

The image has been sponsored by our DT girlie, Nikki, who owns LIMITED RUNS .

 This was my first stint with a Recipe challenge and believe me I have loved this one the most.....the idea took place in an instant but executing it...phew!!! It took me ages I thought....I was just not getting satisfied with the colors....the size of image....and embellishments ...but am happy I finally managed.....

My Recipe: 4 Different Papers- 1 background paper, 2 flowers are handmade with 2 different papers, 1 the brown shiny paper for stem.
3 Brads- 2 bird shaped brads, 1 heart shaped brad
2 ribbons- 1 as a bow on the flower stem, 1 as the leaves
1 image- mini butterfly set from Limited Runs

A closer view to see the bird brads.....

My third brad and the 2 different ribbons  (red and green)

My image...the mini butterfly set... on Fabriano CS and colored using Tombow Markers...

 Another angle ....

I love the 3D dimension that the flowers have got to the card...

 I hope you get inspired and try your hand at the new challenge at Incy Wincy- RECIPE!!!

I am here with a new creation of inspiration from youtube was a client order for gifting purpose during the Diwali (Festival of lights) time....have a look.....

I have made them pretty ornate as per the brief....but believe me this is not my style....I was not confident with this at all....

A closer look ......

The top view....

For all those who are wondering what the project is all about....its a round box....which could insert a small gift or use it to give cash.....

Isnt it a beautiful way to gift cash during festivals or any other occasion ??? 

For all those who thought that was the end of is a card box.....there is a card at the base to write your gratitude/ wishes....your message etc....the round box is hand made and not a die cut!!! Just to be specific.....

Another angle.....

Closer look at the card....Hope you like this project.....

Its Biiiiiirrtthhhhday Timeee.....Yippiiieee......its a blog hop!!!

Hi Guys,

Welcome to Tejal's blog hop. Our Butterfly Girl is a special lady and what better way to celebrate a birthday with, other than a blog hop....So hop along... You have 16 stops to make before heading to Tejal's blog to wish her.. And a blog hop also means prizes and surprises... So one random lucky commenter would get a Echo Park mini theme collection.... So what are you guys waiting for.. Hop along and join in the fun to wish Tejal...." A Very Happy Birthday ".....

Here is a list of the participating people so in case you get lost along the way you know where to go....

                                                            Saumya (You are here!!!)
                                                            Tejal  -The Burrrddday Gurl

You should be here from Shalini's blog.... if not then find your way to the top of the list above..
Hey Cupcake.....(that's what her very first card to me said....) and am returning the title as she truly is the "Cupcake Girl" .....not many know but she is equally fascinated with Cupcakes and Donuts (Khush does not share this love with us :(  *sob *sob) as she is with butterflies and blings....We are the reflection of each other in more than many ways!!!! We are best when we are bitching...heheheh I guess that brings out the best in us..okie I guess I  let out the secret and she may kill me for this.....

I wonder how a DCWV paper stack decided to bind us together in a friendship that shall now be prized and possessed through out our lives!!! (I have yet not used that stack till now Tee...remember how desperate I was to have it.....and thanks to you it's lying with a hoarder!!) Life gives an opportunity once and am happy we both grabbed it with both hands .....unbelievable that we have not yet completed a year!!! 

The chats...the swap discussion...the meano discussions....the product reviews ....the techniques and tip discussions have become a part of our daily life and its amazing how when we are busy with loads of work and are unable to chat ...the day ends with BBM pings saying "whats up....what did you do...missed chatting yaar..did I miss any gossip through the day" ...its almost as if the day stood still unless that exchange of pings took place between us!!!!

Okie now a confession, your birthday card chewed up my brains (its not easy to design and make cards for a perfectionist...and more over for such a close end up feeling if the card/gift is good enough or not...)...I mean yess "its your day" and am suppose to be good to you and pamper you but ......anyways....after a lot of rejections at idea level and a few tear here and there to fill my dustbin.....I finally decided that your birthday card had to be an extension of what you here it is for you and only for you.....Happy Birthday...and may you get what you dream...and celebrate many such birthdays in the coming years!!!

 Celebrate your day Queen Size Tee!!!! Muah....and Hugs ......

Your next destination is Apeksha .....Remember to comment as you hop along for winning and the deadline is 31st October 2012, 23: 59 hours IST. Do leave your love for the Birthday Gurl!!!
