The Damsel's Birthday! :)

Hellloooo Sweet Ladiesss!!

It has been a long time since my last post! Things have been so busy lately! I wish I had more than 24 hrs a day! :P 

I made this card for Becca- The Damsel of distressed cards who celebrated her birthday recently! :)
Happy Birthday dear Becca!! I am sure you will love her work ! Her comments are colorful and full of life too! :)

She is having a birthday blast by sharing a mood board!
Inspired by it, you need to make a card and she is not giving one but SEVEN prizes! Woohooo!! :)

Here goes my card! I hope she likes it.. :)

I am inspired by the colors of the mood-board. For the tag, I used Shutters-from ARTplorations and color box pigment ink. I outlined a few shutters with black marker. For the heart, I used yellow card stock and over it I used "generation stamping" technique using seedless preserves distress ink and Trendy Leaves from STAMPlorations. 

I used the sentiment stamp set from Bo Bunny for the sentiment and white pigment ink from color box. I adhered all of them using the sketch from STAMPlorations #36. I used texture paste over the purple card and stencil is from Craftslane.

I am also entering it for STAMPlorations Anything Goes.

and City Crafter Challenge -using twine

Before ending this post, I wanted to share my poem with you all! My family has been going through a lot lately as my mother-in-law is suffering from the deadly cancer. She is fighting hard and we all are too! :) 

Right, so, when the emotions flow in, poems come out.. I wrote it after a long time...hope you guys like it.. :)

It is titled as "The Catapult"

Look! The catapult
That we are playing along..
Unavoidable, irresistible,
Thought nothing could go wrong..

Watching other stones
Swinging in the sky high..
Confident it was fun
That no one could deny..

Oh God! I swear!
That stone went far away..
And here is another one
That just went half way..

Didn't know we were
After all prepared..
Dared, compared or
Were we declared..?

Thought the catapult
Would make our stone rise..
You know as may
Had a dream in our eyes..

But now that the stone is
Pulled back for the leap..
Don't know for how long
The stone is going to weep..

Faith is there..
As is hope and love..
The catapult is pulled backward
Only to be soared high like a dove!
