International Women's day hop 2020

Hello friends!!
Wishing you all a Happy International Women's day!
Welcome to our Women's day hop' 2020! 

We started this hop last year with a group of 10 amazing cardmakers and 10+ generous sponsors. With this support we successfully hosted an Instagram hop.

This year we have planned it all a bit more bigger and larger. 
With 25+ sponsors from all across the globe extending their kind and generous support and your active participation, we hope this year is equally successful.  

Here is my card for the hop!
"Solitude is where I place my chaos to rest and awaken my inner peace!"

Theme of my card:
A day in the life of a Woman. 
A day full of tasks and responsibilities - jobs, cooking, laundry, children, family, society and what not. Tasks that drain her out and takes away her patience and peace of mind. 
In the midst of all this, meditation or exercise is the only way she can regain or maintain her sanity.


The image is hand-illustrated by me using reference from Pinterest. 
Background made using watercolour wash in multiple colours. The coloured background represents the multiple thoughts or tasks running through her head. 
The sentiment is printed.



Hope you like my card!

Over to the hop details now!
This year we are organizing an Instagram hop as well as a Blog hop. Our team will be sharing their projects on their blogs and on their Instagram accounts as well.

  6. Anila, I'm blown away by your hand-drawn image! Absolutely spectacular! I agree that we all need some 'personal' time to refresh, rejuvenate and re-energize for all those tasks that appear on our plates. Your card speaks beautifully to how we show our strengths! Wonderful inspiration to celebrate International Women's Day!
