You are a {Blessing} to me...

Heya,

How u doing?? been such a loong time :) 
things just didn't seem to fall in place off late... but much better now:)

Just a quick post to share some fun with all of you:

I remember being part of chain letters when i was a kid.... so, when i read about Deborah's Card Chain, I immediately jumped at the opportunity... the Challenge is now housed at The Lily Pad Blog with some changes. You gotto make the care based on either their color palette or sketch or one of the theme options and link it to the Challenge. Later on you get to know who's sending to whom... what fun!!! Who doesn't love surprises and the CCC Challenge has surprises galore... :)

I tried incorporating the color as well as the theme... I am not a Sketch person at all :(
I somehow tend to squirm and squeal when confined to a sketch...:)








































Kraft CS, White Textured CS, DD and PTI stamps, twine and KC PP paper for the looped edges and a sorbet button to complete the look...

Tried water color and layered stamping for the first time, totally inspired by Shari's videos 
and technique tutes... Though this card will go out to a card chain buddy 
but it was made with 2 gorgeous ladies in mind... my Mom and my M-i-L... 
2 Super Moms i am blessed to have in my life... 
love you two!!! 

And here's what came in my post recently ( actually looong back... sorry Ash) :






Ash) a gorgeous Card and a bag full of goodness and wishes from Ash.... I was totally totally taken by surprise!!! Thank you so so much buddy for all the love you sent my way... you totally made my day J

That's for now and would be back soon with more...

Till Then,

Happy Crafting
and
Thanks for Visiting!!!
