The CB embossed papers were brought from Anita.

I jazzed up the boots with glue and gloss.. look closely.. They look so much like the pair I own.. :D
Did faux stitching..:-)

I used embossed sheets for panelling which I brought from Anita.

So this is dedicated to the two of you..While you're at it do visit these two awesome bloggers and show them some love...

This card will also be my third entry to the current ICR challenge.. * woo hoo*...

Take a look at the card...!!

 Isn't the image just adorable.. I feel in love with the teddy holding the flower *sigh *

A close up of the image...!!

Cardstock=> Fabriano Elle Erre
Dp=> DCVW brought from Karuna
Digi Image=> The image is a freebie from Di's Digi downloads

Yee Hawww.. Don't mind me.. Was just watching the cowboys Vs Aliens Trailer.. Doesn't Daniel Craig look HOT.. * Drooling *...

Anyways.. Today I made a foray back into crafting and it took me the entire day to complete the card.. surprises surprises.. The reason being.. I made the same thrice... The first time I missed a step and the paper went waste * 'dang it*.. The second time I did everything correct and was jumping with joy BUT it wasn't to be so.. I managed to stick it wrong.. * double dang it*.. Finally I made it correctly at the third attempt and am rather proud of myself.. * pat pat*..

I made a circle flip up book for the very first time.. There are lot of tutorials on the web.. Just google it.. It looks complicated but is rather easy to make.. I had a ball making it...

Warning: Loaded with pictures...

Let's have a look at it....

  This is how the flip books looks when it is tied... I cut the circle using the side plates of my dinner set :D.. Since I don;t have a circle cutter.. I make do with what I have.. Psstt Karuna you listening right... :D

This is how it looks when it is tied up... ( there in the background you can see my jeans.. IGNORE) concentrate here.... These are the first and the last panels....

Now the middle two panels...

 Now let me show you the close up of each panel.. I'll speak of the supplies as we go because it used a lot of my supplies... PHEW..


 Well the supplies for this panel are:
Card Stock=> Fabriano Elle Ere
PP=> Hobby Ideas, DCW
Embellishment=> Echo park spring time stickers, Pie Lane heart stockers, Petaloo flowers which I had won in a giveaway and I have put brads for centres which again I had won in Holley's giveaway)
Those lovely words you see are a text sheet from squigglefly.. I cut them and out them in as adjectives..


This panel has Fabriano Elle Erre as card stock, Studio Calico and the DPs from the ICR Swap by Ash, The stockers are from Echo park Spring time and the flowers with brads are petaloo and from Holley's swap respectively...


 This panel has Fabriano Elle Erre Card stock, Hobby Ideas DP.. The stocker embellishments from Echo Park springtime and Pie Lane Lotus..


 This panel has Fabriano Elle Erre as cardstock, Hobby Ideas DP, Buttons from stash and Pie Lane butterflies and Echo park Springtime Text box...

Gurgaon Bloggers Meet..!!

OMG OMG OMG... This was like the bestest afternoon ever... Not in my imagination did I think it would be so awesome to meet complete strangers.. Well not really strangers since we keep following one another *wink* but still.. I guess most of the people got the drift... To think it was a success is an understatement... It was a huge success and we should plan one again.. I will once again be back in Delhi in September.. I think I should move to Delhi permanently only... * wink*...

Anyways... Check the pic and then I'll give you all the details...

Well... There was Dolly, Spardha (the baccha of the blogger samaaj literally), Neha Jain, Shalini,Karuna(Thanks to her for giving us the permission to have a blast at her place), Me of course, Romina and Shubhra.. Unfortunately Chhavi is missing from the pic as she had to leave a tad bit early... but it was super awesome...

Chhavi, Shalini, Romina and DOlly brought along with them some delicious food... YUM YUM... and then we gossipped.. not about craft but everything else in general.. Hell it was like a proper girl friends day out which I have rarely had...All in all one heck of an afternoon.. I wish I could write more but unfortunately I don't have words to put in for them... I'd fail miserably if I tried..

I'd just like to thank all who made it.. It was indeed a pleasure to meet you all.. See you guys in September...
