Happy birthday

Hello friends,

Happy Sunday. Hope you're all doing well. It's time for a new challenge at ATCAS and Jaydee is the host for this fortnight challenge. She chose the code word 'Birthday'. We have the very talented Chrissie as Guest designer.

Without further ado, here is my take on the code word.

For more Inspirations, stop by at ATCAS blog. 
Thank you for stopping by. Happy Crafting.

Hello friends,

It's time for a new challenge at Addicted to CAS blog (ATCAS) and I'm so thrilled to be the host for this fortnight challenge. I challenge you with the code word 'Shapes' which gives you endless possibilities! We have the fabulous Elaine Place as Guest Designer.

Without further ado, here is my take on the code word shapes. 

I played with my circle dies and with little cloud & heart die-cuts from my stash to create the little nature scene. Hope you all liked the CAS look and inspired to play along with the challenge. I can't wait to see your creations. For more inspirations from our Design Team Members, head over to ATCAS blog.

Do You know we are celebrating 3rd International Women's Day by hosting a hop, link Party and Giveaway? You still have 2 more days left to link up your inspiring creations and hop along as well to stand a chance to win prizes. For more details, click here.

Here is a clip of my new Interactive card I made for the hop, and I also have a video tutorial available for the same on my channel. I would be glad if you stop by and leave your thoughts on the comments section.

Thank You so much for stopping by. 

Happy Crafting!

International Women's Day Hop - 2021


Hello Friends, 

Welcome to our 3rd International Women's day Celebration Hop  - 2021. First, I'm wishing all the wonderful women out here a HAPPY WOMEN'S DAY. 

Lots of amazing sponsors are not only sponsoring our hop, but some are also taking part in the hop line by sharing their inspirations. We are more than grateful to all our sponsors, without whom our hop could not be a great success. 

For more information about the prizes they are offering, check out the link here

My card for the hop

Flowers never cannot smile despite having a brief life span. So are women, who never cannot spread happiness despite going through daily challenges. They work all day long to keep things in order and hardly get recognised for their efforts. Don't they deserve the much needed break from their daily routines?! Let's support them for what they are and appreciate their efforts often because a little love and care goes a long way. 

My Card - Rocking Flowers (Action Mode) 

I illustrated this whimsical lady, and the flowers are some random pick from Pinterest. I'm so fortunate to find these doodled flowers as they pair well with my illustration. It was a happy accident.

I'm sharing the image and the template for the mechanism here as follows. You can download and use it.
