                                     CARDS

                                        Last few days I searched for something new. I digged in to the web and found what I wanted. CARDS!! All sorts of cards! Well when I looked at the master pieces I was a little bit of reluctant. I was thinking where to find stamps? No punches.. No quality card stocks.. Wow ! The card sets they advertise on the web.. Marvellous ! Anyway I started with what I have. Later on I will find a way to get them all.
                                       I bought some cards and Wrapping paper from a book store. Found some useful stickers from my daughters sticker box. I found this nice video about how to make the double bow. Watched  video tutorials on how to make cards. So finally I was ready..                          
                
                                
                                      I was thinking what to create when I was rolling paper. Made a petal and tried to squeeze and here is the outcome. Well, it looks pretty to me.. What do you think?


And here's how I used the stickers.




So here's how I arranged everything. I hope to make a better one next time.

Quilling


The slideshow of my cards which I made for the International Swap organized by The Emirates Quilling Guild Group on facebook.The theme was "World's Nations"I seriously started quilling when I was engaged in this swap.And from there onwards no end.. What a wonderful craft.. I am still learning.. Much more to learn.. I hope I was able to show a glimpse of what a wonderful country Sri Lanka is....

Sri Lanka is an island off the southern coast of the Indian subcontinent.Sri Lanka is surrounded by the Indian Ocean.As a result of its location in the path of major sea routes, Sri Lanka is a strategic naval link between West Asia and South East Asia.Sri Lanka is a republic and a unitary state which is governed by a semi-presidential system with its official seat of government in Sri Jayawardenapura-Kotte, the capital.The country is famous for the production and export of tea, coffee, coconuts, rubber and cinnamon, the last of which is native to the country.The natural beauty of Sri Lanka has led to the title The Pearl of the Indian Ocean.The island is laden with lush tropical forests, white beaches and diverse landscapes with rich biodiversity. The country lays claim to a long and colorful history of over three thousand years, having one of the longest documented histories in the world.Sri Lanka's rich culture can be attributed to the many different communities on the island.

Quilling

I love summer.. Another quilled creation by the summer theme.   

The sun “stands” at its most northern position in the sky during summer time. I tried to arrange the sun in position with great difficulty :)

 The summer hats top view...

 The apple tree is my latest invention.

 The sun and the clouds on top of the tree.. Hmm.. The summer is colourful in their garden with lots of apples and flowers.. Everything's arranged on an old CD.
