Christmas was one of my Mom’s favorite festival..though being an Hindu(religion),most of our religion people find it unusual to celebrate Christmas,but my Mom never cared about all that…she just loved…loved and loved Christmas!

she would get up really early on the eve,bake tons of cakes and cookies,decorate our house with the lights and also decorate the Christmas tree for us(the kids).

But now its been a Year that she passed away,leaving her precious memories in our heart’s forever..

so today I wanna share with you this creation of mine that i made especially in memory of my mom..and it is also for a challenge at

valentine scrapbook1

hi friends!

today i am going to share with you a card that i made out of the scraps that i had.first,i was thinking of just throwing the left over scraps but then i thought why to waste these pretty scraps then to use it in some kind of craft project…so here i am with a ‘thanks giving’ card which is completely and totally made out of the scraps that i have been storing in my stash.

Before going to the details of the card,i would like to say one thing to all the crafting friends out there,not to throw those let over scraps…just think of something you can utilize it into and make something beautiful out of it.

The stamp used in this card is from one of my friend,who actually gave it to me in a printed form(she was throwing it,i don’t why!)and said i could use it some time to make up something,so today i finally got the chance  to use it in my card…also it was a thanks giving one,and Thanksgiving is just around the corner, and i was thinking of working on a few cards so it went well with my card.

the sentiment is from purple onions mini sentiment stamp set.

the autumn leaves are hand drawn and hand cut by me using some of the scrap paper i had.. the lace is again a left over from one of my creation that i made earlier and the layered papers are also some of the christmas paper scraps that i i combined all and came up with this.i have also done some stitching (drawn on with a pen!)

and have also used these left over pearls at the top right of the card.

i hope you guys lie it.

i am entering this card for the following challenges:

The witch broom stick is handmade by me.

materials used to make the miniature witch broomstick were:1.Long dry grass

Tutorial to make the ‘witch broomstick:

First,take a bunch of the dry grass and place it around the end of your twig.
Wind your twine around the dry grass to secure it to the stick.Once you have wound it around securely, trim the ends of the dry grass with your scissors to neaten your broom.And thats it!!
