Loads of Thank YOU'sssssss

Hello Girls,

Hope everyone's doing well and getting geared to spend the valentines with loved ones...Today's post is to thank some lovely buddies I have met during this journey of crafting madness...

Firstly Anita...what should i say about her? friendly, helpful, kind, encouraging, sweet...i can give so many many more words but that seems less...
Sometime ago i had received an order to make 60 thank you notes but due to lack of time wasn't sure if i can finish them...Anita "the angel" turned out from somwhere and completed these Princess themed thank you note cards in just 2days FLAT...can you believe this? a superwoman i must say;-) Thanks buddy...



Then she sent me this lovely card which she had won in some challenge (Pic taken from her blog)



Second Thank you is for Tejal.... This is the Dec ATC she made again to send me as due to some tragedy(which is a long story) i could not get to keep any ATC for Dec theme and she was so sweet enough to make a new one for me...Thank you buddy for all the encouragement...Means a lot...Pic taken from ATC blog...(my ATC has added text of Love Ya on it) Sry the camera is with a cousin so cudnt take a fresh pic



Thirdly for My Jan ATC's to Lucy and Tejal again, since i didnt have to post them to myself hahah lol;) i can easily post the pics on my blog

Lucy's ATC

Once again thank you all girlies, I am really glad i met all of u...

Happy Crafting,

Getting more from your Patterened Paper

Hello,

The week has been crazy with hectic work schedules and wedding occasions to attend to, but somehow just managed to take some time out for crafting inorder to rejuvenate myself…crafting therapy works the most for me even better then a spa I guess…lol..;-)

Neways back to the card I made, I had seen this fabulous reinvention of the PP’s at Yvonne’s blog for Dana’s challenge and thought of giving it a try….The first pic is of the original PP (yellow and creamish)…I was finding the yellow color too weird and then wracked my brains on what could I do to enhance it…I am not much of a good stamping person but nonetheless tried my hand at it and I am definitely feeling proud today after I finished this card. Thanks Yvonne and Dana for this lovely challenge, I’m really glad to participate as I could learn something new…





P.S. Sorry the pic hasn't come out too well but this is the max i could manage at night...

Happy Crafting,

Rachana
