Happy News.....

Very happy to share with you all that from this month on, I'm joining the design team at Scrapping4fun challenges. This is a fun challenge blog run by Rachelle who comes up with creative challenge prompts every fortnight. 

My mom has always been my lady luck all my life, so I was grinning away I made this card for

Challenge #16
Happy Mother's day / Mother's day / Mother

Please use a "sentiment" with Happy Mother's day / Mother's day / Mother - using your native language for your creation.

 A long time ago when I was still in school on a certain Mother's day, my brother and I scored the shops in Jayanagar 4th block (Bangalore) in search of a polka dot tea kettle because we had seen our mom admiring one a few months ago. Well.... we didn't have enough pocket money so could buy her one that time. We could never find a polka dot one again, so I made her one out of paper this year :)

The template for the card comes from this site which also has a tutorial on how to assemble the card. I resized the image and made it an easel card. 

My sentiment reads 'Dear Mother' and the small ticket translates to 'My heart is filled with joy/bliss every time I think about you'. I cant think of a better word than joy, maybe if one of my readers also speaks Tamil (a south Indian language), you can help give a better English translation.
There are 4 individual teapots in my card glued together. Being someone who hates to measure and doesn't own a die cutting machine, it took me forever to get the four teapots to align! All papers are from an older release of Prima - aren't they gorgeous!

Here is a closer look at the easel base. And the surprise element - the top of the teapot come off and has a hidden tag for another message!

Have you made a Mother's Day card yet? Why not share it with us this month. Hop over to the Scrapping4fun blog, look at the inspiration from the design team and play along with us.

This month is going to be so exciting...... I have more wonderful news and projects to share with you next week.
