Sentimental Sundays: Anything Goes!

I am BACK!!! I know I have been away from here but I wasn’t away from “crafty world”.

I wanted to tell you guys that I took part in the first ever Crafter’s Expo here in Karachi, Pakistan. You won’t believe it, it was a total HIT!! This was the first time I exhibited my cards etc, what a rush! Check me and my cute banner Smile(yup! I have gained 11 pounds!)


Back to the challenges! Sentimental Sundays is challenging you this week to make anything and everything! It’s your fav anything goes week!

Our sponsor this week is MFT! The team received MFT stamp set to work with. I will be entering my creations at the Moxie Fab World blog. Here are my projects:


I introduced these little 4x4 accordion fold cards as Card-inis here (card cum mini)! I made five of these and they were sold within the first couple of hours, people came back for seconds!

Here is how it looks when opened:


the first page can be used as a photo mat and the last two pages are for writing your heart out!

The backside also has embossed photo mats.

For the second cardini I used PDCC colour story:


The inside:


The backside:


I finally bought my first Spellbinder’s die! LOVE it!

I hope you are still here with me! LOL please stop by the Sentimental Sundays blog and check out what the rest of the DT made. Don’t forget to wish Calypso, she just had a baby! WOOT!

See you soon! I promise!
