Hello, ICRians!

ICR turns a YEAR OLDER tomorrow….. and I am excited!! I bet you guys are too! 😀 As ICR turns one I can only remember all the good times I’ve had and all the suppak friends I’ve made here! When I joined ICR.. we were just a handful back then and we kinda knew each other personally.. 🙂 From that to 200+ members sure is a remarkable growth in such a short span..! I have seen ICR grow!

The first ever card I made was for a challenge at ICR.. hehe.. now when I look at cards I made back then.. I can see how much my style has matured over the past year.. and ICR surely should be duly credited for that in lot many ways than one..

So, on the event of ICR completing a year, we at ICR are having considerably a BIG BLOG HOP termed as “Re-Creational” Blog Hop! And this is to celebrate all our GUEST DESIGNERS at Indian Craft Room for the year 2011…. YAY!

You should have arrived here from Hussena Calcuttawala

If not make sure you begin the recreational hop from the INDIAN CRAFT ROOM!

ICRC7 (revisited) – All creatures big and small

I had won the ICRC7 challenge: ALL CREATURES BIG AND SMALL, at ICR back in July last year..  so I along with all the winners of ICR challenges 1 to 12.. were given an opportunity to guest design for ICR for the same topics, on the event of its One year celebration. 😀 And I was only happy to jump in and participate!!

Here is the card that won me the Guest Designer Post in ICR Challenge#7 – All Creatures big and Small.


And now for my new creation on the same theme..
