Handmade Cards This Year

There are never really enough posts here on Kreative Korner. When I started off at the beginning of the month with 3 posts in 8 days, I was taken by surprise myself and thought - 'We might just have a storm  of posts this month' but that was not to be. I did go on a break. Break only from blogging, otherwise I was very busy.

Two more-adorable-than-naughty nephews kept everyone in the house on their toes and that too very willingly. Traveled to a city new to me. Dressed up with all my heart to be a part of a party, where I knew not even 10% of the people :) Came to terms with the loss of a very dear family member. Went out for an all girls shopping evening. Watched IPL matches on and off. Stayed off work for 4 consecutive days (that does include two days of weekend). Stayed awake for hours worrying about out-of-sight parents' ill health. Found an exciting work-out regime (but could not follow it more than thrice *wink* ) Tried to gear up myself to face the rising temperature but the more I try, the more difficult it gets!

Amidst all this, I did get a chance to grab some paper, glue and scissors to make Rishan's b'day banner but I'll hold myself from sharing the pictures until after the party. Meanwhile, I can show ya'll the cards that I made for my sister-in-law & brother-in-law's wedding anniversary and the latter's birthday.


When I was picking up the paint chips from the hardware store, 
mom-dad & Sanket wanted to know where was I going to use them. 
I had no answer back then but now I HAVE!! :)
Paint chips punched for this card.







With this one, I did not know where to start from but the pattern just evolved.
Paper rolled-out to form 3D candles. 
Like that font? I do.
Green sheet is from a brochure :)
Re-use rocks!!





So far, so good!
I have been able to send out handmade cards to family members on their special days.
Happy being able to stick to the resolution :)


By the way, I just watched my favorite team win the eliminator to qualify for the 'Qualifiers' :D 
Go Rajasthan goooo... 
Anybody of you following the IPL? Which team are you backing?

    1. 'this season too'... I am pretty sure you are talking about CSK :D
      Yeah, they do look unbeatable but I am not losing hope!!
      T20 results cannot be predicted unless the match is over.
      The tournament is still open for all the three teams.

      Let's see :)

  5. Lovely cards! I wonder how many paint chips hardware stores lose to crazy crafters like us. It's so hard to resist bringing home just a few ;)

    1. Hahahaha... so true!! My parents and husband went in different directions while I was picking these up ;) 'Crazy Crafters', that's such an apt term!

      Happy crazy crafting :)
