Explosion Box-Poker Theme

Hi Guys,

Back with yet another crafty post... I haven't been crafting much because Kolkata is freezing and keeping my fingers numb...

I recently made a poker themed 18th birthday explosion box on request and well... it was quite a challenge... I have no idea about poker so before going into it, I had to research quite a bit...I won't say am a huge fan of the game ( too many technicalities involved)...

An explosion box makes things easier.. enough space to write and post pics too... :-)

WARNING:- Picture heavy post (when are my posts not picture heavy :P)

      The box lid- poker chips and some cards

Open view of the box and the lid and in the center a small box

 hand drawn symbols.. :D

Making a gift for a guy is extremely difficult... I have that uncontrollable urge to use flowers and bling and what not... All things feminine come to my mind them.. :P

Happy New year

Happy New Year everyone..

I am sorry for the delayed wishes.. I was away on a fantastic year end holiday with my family.. It was just so much fun being with everyone. Went to my native place Deshnoke, Rajasthan.

My blog has been fairly quiet as I have been busy with family issues and social occasions...It just encroaches on crafting time at times and I feel so annoyed.

Sharing with you the calendar I made for the last swap at Swap Central. My calendar got delayed for a lot of reasons and mostly all of it my fault so I am sorry for the delay Pallavi.

There were a lot of firsts in this one... Used my new dies, my neon inks and lots of recycling too... :D

 the cover page

I loved working on this calendar... I had made another one for the swap and it was complete but my niece decided to pee on it ( I assume she did not like it enough :P) So I had to make another one.. LOL

There were just way too man supplies used for this one.. SO if you have any queries please feel free to drop em an email and I would revert back to you.

I am entering this for the following challenges:-
Sunshine Creations=> For the new year
Crafters Corner #4=> Anything but a card or Layout!

Thanks for dropping by... I have quite a few posts to share so my blog is going to be pretty active for the moment... :D
