Happy crafting !

Materials Used :
magnolia stamps
inkadinkado fairy stamp
copics for colouring
martha stewart butterfly punch
sizix tag
timholtz distress inks
sentiment frm hero arts
laces,strings  and flowers frm my stash

Its been a while since I posted sumthing on my blog bcos FB seems to take over blogging .I have now promised my self to  2 posts a month.I hope  to keep up  the promise.
Off late I have fallen in love with magnolia stamps esp Little Tilda. I am sure most of u wld agree with me ,Isnt she lovely? I have been stamping and colouring using copics .I   will be posting  the pics soon.

During my vacation in India I managed to do some scrap booking for the family!It was fun doing it but suppiles were limited or I shld say nuthing was availabe .
