The handle is a plastic hanger.....and all embellishments are felt and tissues....except the fairies...

The embellishments are hung on Wool...

The face of the fairies are left blank as my niece demanding that once she is in India she would want to complete them herself...and How could I possibly break her heart!!! so along with the fairies am waiting for Ananya to fly down next month ...

All the five fairies together...

Thanksgiving .......

In India, its time for Diwali almost but most of the West World will be soon celebrating Thanksgiving!!! This post of mine is showcasing the GDT project for Eureka Stamps New Challenge

I was not too sure of the Thanksgiving feel as I have never seen or celebrated it....Halloween is still catching up in India and I have been through the spooky feeling while visiting my Brother in Japan and Hong Kong so was easier for me to do cards related to that.....none the less I gave it a shot though the DT was kind enough to say that I could do a simple thank you  card!!! 

The digi is from their own Eureka Stamps Store...  which has been printed on Fabriano CS and colored using Tombow Markers....and then I fussy cut it....

I took a Bazzill CS and stamped the Hero Arts BG stamp with Brilliance Starlite Silver...mounted it on a Fabriano CS ....My idea was just to keep the card bright ...colourful and festive....

Hope you guys liked it....

Beyond Grey Challenges#20-Sticth It!!

If you have noticed my sidebar you will see I made it to the Top 3 at BGC #18....and as a result was offered a chance to be their here I am with the GDT post and my creation for the challenge...

This week at Beyond Grey Challenge, its Sew Happy Stitching Challenge....all you are to do is have some real stitching (Hand or Machine) on your card /LO....super easy!!!

And here is what I made......

Keeping in mind the season I thought of a more contemporary  design .....and am not a stitching person at all except for a few projects I did at school and some totes and treat bags !!!

The flowers are cut outs from a pattern paper and stuck and some popped up on dimensionals....a self adhesive fabric tape to make more colorful......and a sweet sentiment to match the design!!!

The trees are hand stitched (back stitch done with brown embroidery threads) and the red bling is added to signify leaves.....

 I personally love the array of colors that the card brings out and my first attempt with stitching on paper!!!

Another angle....
