Created by jkmrao on 2009-02-11,

Happy Valentine's Day!

This bleeding heart is for you,
this pleading heart is for you,
This glowing heart is for you,
this flowing heart is for you,
This feeling heart is for you,
This kneeling heart is for you,
This loving heart is for you,
this living heart is for you!

(One of the beautiful flowers in the plant queendom is the bleeding heart.
It is either pink or white and of course its shape is in the form of a heart.
The entire card was made from the image of one of those flowers.)

Rangoli: Sumangali Rangoli
Created by lakshmiraghu on 2008-04-03,

"Sumangali" means married women. It is customary, for a married hindu woman, to invite other married ladies for a religious ritual (puja), followed by a feast during festival days like Ugaadhi, Dasara and for Varalakshmi pooja. After the feast, the ladies are offered gifts which have symbols of "auspiciousness" like the turmeric, vermillion, flowers and beetle leaves (with areca nuts).

This rangoli has items like : Betal leaves (with nuts) placed with coins, fruits, cones of mehendhi or henna, flowers on plates, soaps, talcum powder boxes, colorful glass bangles, coconut oil in small plastic bottles, Kajal boxes, mini boxes of turmeric and kumkum (vermillion).
