Card for a Special Teacher

Here's my first card for Teacher's Day. I am submitting this for the Hands 2 Hearts Challenge. I love paisleys and when Shoma of Krafter's Kart designed some paisley stamps, I could not resist. Even the "Best Teacher" stamp is from her store.

A birthday gift to myself - a sizzix BIG SHOT :)

Last week, it was my birthday and I decided to gift myself a Big Shot and I wanted to have it with me on my birthday. I immediately thought of Shalini of Crafters Corner - I knew she would ensure that I get it on the day I wanted it. She was so sweet - when she realised, it was my birthday - she added an embossing folder as a gift to me with no extra cost. She has awesome stuff at her store and actually guides you. She will frankly tell you that this is not required at the moment - do not invest and I really like that about her.

This is my BIG SHOT - am so excited

This is my first embossed paper (I am in the process of learning the right technique) .

Happy embossing.

Swap with ICR

Last month, I participated in the first swaps (in fact 2 of them) - was very excited not only to make the swaps but also to receive them.

My first swap was for Indian Craft Room (ICR) - theme being friendship. For this swap, we had to make 2 ATC and they have to be sent to 2 different crafters and in return, you will receive 2 ATC's from 2 different crafters. Isn't that exciting?

Happy swapping,
