ICRCAUT02: Stripy Sketch + DIWALI Creations

Hey Everyone!

The INDIAN CRAFT ROOM is has a new Coaster Rides challenge!  All about Diwali!  
Let me till you bit more about Diwali...

Diwali is also known as the "festival of lights!"  It's an Indian festival marking the triumph of GOOD over EVIL.  During the days leading to Diwali, families celebrate by taking part in traditional activities in their homes and neighborhoods.  Some of these activities include festive fireworks, sharing of sweets, creating rangoli designs, and lighting up oil lamps called diyas aka LIGHTS.....LOTS AND LOTS OF LIGHTS!

Here is our challenge...
ICRCAUT02: Stripy Sketch + DIWALI Creations

Celebrations are usually started off with a Ganesh Puja.  So, instead of diyas, I decided to use a pic of Ganesh,  who is the God of good beginnings and remover of obstacles.   Normally my pics are taken indoors using natural light, but had to wait for the sun to come up (behind the trees).  It wasn't coming up fast enough, so decided to take the pic outside, which did help!

Here is my inspiration card...

Happy Sunday Everyone!  

It feels good to be back to my craft table and on my blog after a long break.   I loved every minute of it, but was itching to get back to crafting, and anxious about all that I was missing. Well, I'm back and ready to get back to my craft!

INDIAN CRAFT ROOM is back as well!  I've missed working with Ash, and all the wonderful DTs and crafters at ICR.  I'm excited to share that I'm once again a proud DT member, and we're back with a great challenge...

Here is our first challenge...
ICRCAUT01: Triangle + More Than THREE

I took the theme of "Coaster Rides" literally, and went with a roller coaster digi!  I think the sentiments are fitting to both myself and the INDIAN CRAFT ROOM !  It's been a long time, but we are back!

The roller coaster digi is from Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons. It was the perfect digi with tons of triangles.   I had lots of fun with all the
