BIRTHDAY GROWING!!!!!

Hey All!!!! Thanks again for those lovely & inspiring words of appreciation.... It only urges me to do better..... So I guess, I am on the right track..... ;-)

Hey, this time I kinda goofed up, with what I wanted to do... So I was not in a position to post this project before the expiry of many of the MAIN challenges..... But I thought, lemme still show what I did.... But of course it took me a day or rather a night for me to Okay what I did or wanted to.... Somehow I was not able to concentrate... So I dumped whatever I tried last night & re did everything today morning.... & since I was also held up with my chores around at home.... I am posting this very very late..... I am really sorry.... I request all those who threw these awesome challenges, to forgive my delay...... SORRY!!!!!

So here is what I have done..... (Finally!)

Birthday Growing


And this is how I made it.....

I used a purple & orange red CS for my base & layer.....
I used yellow & purple again for the small layered panels on which I paper pieced the tree & the grass....... to create a scene with hand cut pieces.....
I hand drew that girl in the garden, with her gardening bucket & a small digging spade & few flowers around..... & I stamped her head for the bow.....
I adhered a piece of orange red CS with the thought hand written" Growing Older Can be a Wonderful Adventure, if u just remember, that the important word is GROWING..."
I used a lavender ribbon around & to make a bow... Onto which I tagged the hand written sentiment of Birthday, with the help of a string.....
I even cut a butterfly from a printed paper & adhered it on the layered panels.....
I used the lavender printed paper both sides for plain & printed flowers... which I designed & hand cut...... & same goes with the yellow & light blue CS papers.....
Later I adhered buttons with colors green, yellow, orange & blue.......

Birthday Growing


An hour of my day is dedicated to my Doctor's daughter (Nishika) who comes in for some quick lessons on card making... I just share what I know & learnt from sources during my card making process....

She is very interested in arts & crafts & I help her with few things I am aware of..... since I do not know the A to Z of it...... It has just been a couple of days, since I started giving lessons to her. She is so into it, that she makes cute small cards & distributes them to her friends & teachers..... I feel so happy to hear her..... Well... I just taught her to make envelopes today...... a simple way...... :-) So I am engrossed in planning what next???? for her too..... ;-)

And this is what she made...... Are they not cute for a beginner.....!!!!!

Lil Lessons


That is it for now......

UNTIL NEXT, KEEP THE FAITH!!!!!
