Hi Everyone!

Welcome to DAY 7 of the ICR BLOG HOP!  
You should have arrived here from Bhavana's Blog 
If unsure, you can begin the HOP from the 

Here are all the details you'll need….


WHEN & WHERE: The Blog Hop started on November 15th @ 6:00 pm, IST at ICR….. However you have until November  28, 11:59 pm, IST, to accomplish YOUR HOP by following all the rules to the Blog Hop which can be found HERE

WHY:  To be inspired by a new & a FIRST TIME theme for your project blog post submissions, and to stand a chance to WIN PRIZES and surprises by the end of the fortnight fun…

PRIZE: The ColorConceptions Sponsored Prize which is a Rs.500 Gift Voucher to their Online Store.

...and if we have over 50 hoppers every designer would induce a personal CANDY TREAT your way!  Here is a sneak peak!

Here is my card...
Thanksgiving is on November 26th and my family has a big shindig every year.  With the family growing in size, we look forward to getting together to celebrate family traditions. 

We have a grande dinner on Thanksgiving!  My aunt cooks the best turkeys....yes 2!  One of those turkeys is usually a masala turkey (drooling). Have been thinking about thanksgiving dinner for weeks now...can hardly wait for it!

I'll be bringing her a hostess gift and this card to go with it!

I had too much fun with these watercolors, and am looking forward to making some more.  I used the watercolor embossing resist technique.  The bronze leaves were embossed first, and then I watercolored.  I embossed the "thanks" sentiment as well and used 3-d dots to pop it up, as well as the leaves embellishments. 


1) Starting from ICRFORUM BLOG POST , hop on to all the participating blogs as they unveil their projects on their blog space, each day & leave some love to all including ICR BLOG POST

2) Once you have hopped & commented on all the blogs including the last reveal you would go back to the ICRFORUM BLOG POST {where you started which is here} & leave a second comment saying so….

3) And if you have participated with active crafting {created a project based on any of the water coloring methods opted by the designers on their projects } & have posted your project on your blog space, then kindly link up your name in the inlinkz on ICRFORUM BLOG POST, with a link to your blog post of the project….

4) Spread a word to this blog hop all over social media that you access… so that.... IF The Water Color Blog Hop has over 50 hoppers then the designers would be instigated to offer a personal blog candy on our respective blogs… WIN WIN WIN!!!


6) Socialize with us on social media to catch up with extras on “Fun & Frolic”

ICRCPREWIN01 would continue to run till November 30th as it has turned monthly & is being sponsored by Color Conceptions again… So do not miss on an opportunity to shop your favorites from their store…

We hope you are all excited as we are, about this hop!

Happy Halloweekend!


This is my 1st of two posts today...lots going on this Halloweekend.

We celebrated my nephew's birthday yesterday with a Halloween Bash.  It was also my baby girl's first Halloween, so her dad and I fought over her halloween candy!  Just kidding!  We could hardly wait to get her into her first halloween costume and take her trick-or-treating, which means TOO MANY PICS!   We dress up ever year even if it's in a small way,  so this was something we were looking forward to!  I love Halloweekends!  

The "Hallows Eve" digi is from Cuddlebug Cuties that I've been saving to use.  I colored the image in with copics, which I haven't used in quite some time.  A lot of my craft stuff is still in boxes, so had to use good ole' sandpaper to distress the punched out sentiment.  

Here's my card!

Thanks for stopping by!
