I’m back! and a card

Wow! I can’t believe I haven’t posted in my blog for months, feels like forever?!

So what had happened? I was on my annual break last November and had to prepare the trip even before November. Then I have to travel for two weeks in North America. Its cold but great! I may say the best two weeks of my life 🙂

Had great places to see and amazing people to meet. It was quite incredible, the best birthday gift to self.

After the vacation, a lot of things need to be done at work so I haven’t really updated the blog. I’m however posting my holiday cards in Instagram. You can also check me out there as @heartforhandmade

So today, had the chance to do some holiday cards.

I did some embossing – dry and heat embossing plus some die cutting in the scallop strip + sequins.

Well its nice to be back.

I’m entering this card to  Addicted to Stamps and more, Challenge # 224. Clean & Simple

My Best Friend

All Dressed Up Challenge blog (ADU) has started its first challenge today with the theme, Anything Goes.

ADU had a design team call a month ago and I being a digi stamp lover of cute, whimsical images tried out but didn’t make it to the cut.

I’m so happy though that I was asked to be a Guest Designer for the month of  October 🙂 How great is that?

So now I’m sharing my take using ADU My Best Friend digi image. I did two projects, one as a card and another as a gift tag.  I think the gift tag will be great for party favors and just any gift isn’t it?

I embossed the pink card base for some added texture and played around some patterned papers for additional colors. The images were colored with promarkers, my go to coloring medium at the moment.

I can’t decide which of the two should I submit for the challenge so I sent them both so ADU team can choose. So happy they accepted both to be featured.

So here it is.
