Quilled Earrings


Here is the second post for the day. I made these quilled rings for the same office friend and added coordinated colours and patterned paper as well. Since my friend is fair i wanted to make something bright and peppy so i stuck to an abstract design rather some flowers. I used my ultimate crafters companion pro to create a matching box to ensure these are not damaged  and they look great as a gift box. The flower is again hand made as mentioned in one of my previous posts :)

I would be making more quilled earrings now and taking orders for customized ones too. So feel free to contact me for orders :)

Since i used the colour green in my project am also entering it for Stampin sisters in christ Challenge-76

Here are some pics :)

Pop up card

Hi dearies,

This weekend ended on sad note as i lost one of my Guinea pigs :(. Unfortunately it was rainig  and maybe she slipped from the balcony while exploring along the new sun shades we installed for the French windows in the balcony of our new home. It broke my heart to see her limp body. I am trying to recover from this sad incident ever since. But life goes on and i am trying to find a new companion for my male guinea pig to keep him distracted. I am sure he will survive well. :)

I made this card using my new crafters companion ultimately pro. It's a 3 fold card and my first pop-up card on a gate fold card which i made for a dear office friend last week.  I am entering it for few challenges...
