" My name is Gopi Patel, and I was born and raised in New Jersey, USA. I've always loved anything and everything crafty…especially paper crafts! I started out with scrapbooking about six years ago, and I joined the stamping and card making world just last year. I love to blog and be able to share my passion of paper crafts, which includes: scrapbooking, card-making, rubber stamping, and other crafty projects, techniques, and ideas. Blog surfing and logging into the ICR both allow me to find new creations and inspirations on a daily's wonderful!

I am blessed with a wonderful familly and friends, an amazingly talented boyfriend of 10 years (we'll be engaged in 2 months!), and a gorgeous Shetland Sheepdog named Khushi. They are all pros with dealing with my crafty cravings :) I work full time in OIT, I'm a part time dance teacher (Bollywood/Semi-Classical), and I'm also a Demonstrator for Stampin' Up.

And below are the inspirations from the DT.... on ICR!

Sudha has done dry embossing here...... and the sentiment is so apt with the friendshop day around... I love that amazing inspiration from her! It is exciting to see what she inspires us with!

And this is from me... :p Was feeling terribly ill during the course of this card..... Pain & exhaustion killed me... Yet managed to put something together as an inspiration..... 

I have dry embossed on vellum & ran some bic markers on the emboss a lil, as I did not wanna deviate from the simplicity of the card....


That's from Mona..She has done a fab job with so many different fonts in one sentiment... That's an amazing one Mona.. Thank You!!!

That's the FUN filled inspiration from dear Bhavana....... I LOVE the Sentiment, and she has used embossed patter papers... which flaunts the playful mood & influences us with it too....


And here is the inspiration from Priya...... She has used 2 different embossed papers and combined different stickers to make a single sentiment with 3 different fonts.... Used puffy heart stickers to add cherry on the top.. ;)

Now ICR is excited to check on our crafters as to what techniques & what fonts you guys would play with, this FRIENDSHIP DAY!!!

Just unleash your creativity & show the world what uniqueness you can come up with @ ICRC20!!!
