Happy Diwali!

I have been MIA from the blogworld for quite a long time (two weeks is real longg!).. have not been crafting heavily as much as I wished to, but did manage to make quite a few number (20 - my first high bunch ever) of festival cards for Diwali!. Many of my relatives and friends are here in the US and I felt that it would be a good idea to send them a handmade Diwali wish!..

As I was making multiple cards, kept the design very simple. Wanted to use a mehendi design on my card and the closest I had was the one I got as part of a Scrapabilities set. Quilled a vilaku/diya to depict the festival of lights:) and used my wood alphabet stamps for the title. Had total fun making these cards and hope the receiver feels joy too!
Entering this card to the First Anniversary Challenge at Take a Quill Pill


As Diwali is not a holiday here, we and a few of our friends celebrated the festival in advance over the weekend!. Though we couldn't burst the crackers (:(boo)..we enjoyed some sparklers and had homemade sweets/savouries followed by a grand potluck dinner:). I tried kaju katlis and for a first timer, they came out very well!:)...Wish you all a Happy and Safe Diwali!
