Find your luck!

Hello there,

Has any childhood memory made you make a card?? I had just seen the bug cards on CASology and I loved the super inspiring take by the DT and their guest designer, Hannelie Bester. Although, I knew I have no time this week and that I'll not be able to make anything, I made a card! Combining sketch, colours and idea from all the blogs I follow. St. Patricks day and clover cards fill my IG feed.. so inspired by the card makers around the world and adding what brought luck to me as we in India do not celebrate St Patrick's day, I thought of this card! Actually, I also had this sentiment in a stamp set, called finders keepers, which I had never used. I googled what it meant and then this idea struck me! (Finders Keepers, losers weepers.. oh man! I know what it means!)

Lady bug!! Do you have memories of picking one.. wishing and blowing it away to fly?? I have! We were told it brings good luck.. and we used to go hunt for these.. just to pick them from the grass and shrubs.. make a wish and blow them away :D (and those who wouldn't find one.. were losers)



So these are my memories in a card. It's quite different and I know not very likable but I am so happy.. because it took me to those grass fields and gardens, where we (me, my brother, our friends.. we were so little and thankfully technology came in late) looked for these, hiding underneath a leaf.. I just got my childhood memories back!

  7. I love ladybirds (as we call them here in the UK) and the little hint of red through the leaves is a great idea. Thank you for joining us for this week's CC&S challenge.
