Ringing in the New Year!!!

Hello Everyone and wishing you all a very Happy New year!!!

It's almost 8 days since we ushered into the new year and one of my promises to myself this year is keeping this blog of mine alive and kicking! 2015 had been a rock and roll journey and with a little toddler my blog land was neglected often. But with the new year, I'm promising myself a blogpost atleast every week! and more participation in the challenges!

I'm beginning this new year with a card that I made with my DT supplies of the Peek-a-Boo Designs!
The Company is new and holds lots of promises with their nice stamps!

The Doodled heart card is all stamped and then coloured using the Faber Castell watercolor pencils and the cupid card is a shaker card! I love love love making the shaker cards!

I'm playing along Paru's Card Making Challenges. The stamps in both the cards are new stamps!

Thank you for stopping by, I'll be seen more often here this year and with that as a promise, see you all soon!!

Happy Crafting!

I have tried my hand at making madhubani painting earlier and a preview of the madhubani inspired magnets can be viewed here.
