ATSM#211- Anything Goes and what kept me busy!

Helllooo Dearrrr Friendsss!!! :)

First of all, let me apologize for my absence from the blog world from a last few days! I must tell you all what all kept me busy last fortnight!

But before that, it is time for a new challenge at Addicted to Stamps and More #211 !! :)

We have Anything Goes at ATSM ! And our sponsor this week is STAMPlorations! ;)

 I have a collection of amazing STAMPlorations stamps- I was waiting eagerly to use one! :)

For the card, I used STAMPlorations-Trendy leaves and Trendy Feathers stamp set. I did a bit of masking on the borders and stamped the leaves using various colors of distress ink. MISTI stamping tool makes it very convenient! :)

I am entering this card for -
1.Time Out Challenge#65
Inspired by words “Love the trees until their leaves fall off, then encourage them to try again next year.”

3.Inkspirational Challenge#117- Photo inspiration. I am inspired by the fall colors(Orange/Yellow/brown) from this pic.

 Now, back to what kept me busy! As you know, I am working in a software company, we had our Production release. When we have a release, we create a havoc and that kept me busy in the office. We had working weekends and long working hours in office! 
After that, we have Ganpati festival celebrated at our home. All my Indian friends might be aware of that but for my Non Indian friends out there, Ganesha festival is celebrated in full swing in our state. Here we pray to the Idol of Mighty God Ganesha. He is the God of Knowledge, Happiness and the one who is worshipped before any other God! :)
Check out the picture of Ganesha that we got for our Home! 
In addition to all this, I caught cold which made me feel low. However, medicines helped! ;)
Now I am feeling much better and Office work is sorted out. Ganesha festival is still being celebrated! :)
Wooops!! I forgot to say, now I got myself a logo! You will find me using this in my cards and pages! It signifies my FIRST Stamp Design -The Humming Bird set from Mudra Stamp Crafts!
 Did you like it?
This has been one of my longest posts yet! Lol. Hope I did justice to my absence! ;)
I will catch up with the comments soon! 
Thanks so much for being here- I appreciate it a lot! And thanks for being patient!

Hugs xx
