Hello dear friends,
Welcome to Diwali Bloghop 2014. This is the second year I am participating in the Diwali Blog Hop organised by Chaitali Narla.
Diwali is the festival of lights celebrated in India. The festival celebrates the victory of good over evil by lighting up lots of lights on the darkest night. The mythology of Diwali varies from region to region in India. But essentially we all celebrate the victory of good.
Anyway, you should have come from Chaitali’s blog. But if this is your first visit, then don’t worry I will give you a list of participant of this hop later in the post.
Here is my card for Diwali
I have combined a few different stamp sets and dies to create my card for Diwali. I recreated a diya (an oil lamp) using the paisley dies from Reverse Confetti. The stamp sets are from Wplus9. Embellished using gold sequins from Pretty Pink Posh as well as the scallop die. The sentiment die is from MFT. I made a few more to send out to the girls.
For past two weekend, we have been inviting guest home as part of Diwali celebrations, going to Diwali fairs and community celebrations. So much fun and food. This Thursday is the actual Diwali day. It is going to be awesome with feast, new Indian Clothes, sharing sweets and wishes. I miss the celebrations at home, lighting up firecrackers, meeting family and friends. The atmosphere is so different. Nevertheless, we will still celebrate as much as we can here 🙂
You next stop is to the gorgeous and so talented Mayuri.
