quilled congratulations card


     I felt truly honoured when I was requested to make cards to write the names of the winning schools to be read out by the chief guest  at the award ceremony of our inter school competition. The cards were given to the winning schools along with the trophy.
     I added the sentiment first and then quilled around it. Nothing like elegant scrolls to fill up a card quickly. It is just coincidence that this card has all the colours in our flag.
     As usual Akhil has a speech ready that he will be giving today morning at the flag hoisting ceremony at our library for our 65th independence day.  .



   Linking this card to For the joy of crafting  CAS card
                                  Itsy bitsy Tri-colour (Saffron,white and green)


     These Kusudamas are so special to me . My son Akhil folded them. I wanted to make some flowers for the center of the kolam for the final day, but then I had to go away for a couple of days and did not find time.I enlisted Akhil's help , I cut the squares , he looked up for the tutorial on the internet and  folded them .,I must say I am overjoyed , he folds so neatly and so quickly, It's so nice when our kids enjoy the same things that we do.

Thanks for stopping by, Happy independence day.

This is seriously gorgeous stuff Suganthi.. Absolutely love love love the way you have done the bouquet around the sentiment.. I agree nothing more elegant than scrolls.. And Akhil definitely takes after you, he has the same crafting bug as his mother which is reflected in the neatness of his work.. WAY to go Akhil..!!
