Happy New Year - Welcome 2017!!!

Hello Everyone!!!
Wish you all a very Happy New Year!!!
May this year bring you good health, prosperity and lots of happiness & peace in life!!!

Hope that all of you enjoyed a Merry Christmas and had loads of New Year Celebration.

2016 went by very fast and I can't believe that it is already 2017. 2016 has taught me several life lessons which are going to be very useful in the upcoming years. In all I can say that 2016 was a great year for me in terms of paper crafting. Did a lot of die-cutting, embossing, color blending etc. Can you believe that I wrote 50 post in 2016 which means I made many more cards in the year compared to 2015


I'm thankful to all my family and friends who are always very encouraging towards me. Also I'm grateful for all the appreciation all you out there have given me. In 2017 I hope, I get to learn more new techniques and work with more awesome people in future.

Here is a short recap of all my artwork from last year.

Thanks so much for all you who visited my 
blog and lovely comments last year.
Thanks for stopping by today.  Wishing all a Very Happy and Healthy New Year 2017 once again.
May God bless you all!!!

10 Days of Christmas - Day 4

Hello Everyone!!!

I'm back again today with Day 4 of the 10 Days of Christmas. My apologizes for yesterday's gap. If you have dropped in all of my previous Christmas cards can be found here.

Today I have 2 cards for you. I have CAS-ed this card exactly as Kristina Werner showed in her Holiday Card Series 2015 - Day 19. This is a really simple and easy card pattern to recreate and that's why I love it so much. I had CAS-ed it here last year too. This year I have embellished it a little differently and used washi tape to create the tree shapes instead of the Painter's taper that Kristina used.. Let me know what you guys think?

Let's have a look at the cards now.
