Friday Feature: Rahmat

It's time we started featuring some of our participants here on the CASology blog!  After all, it's you, our faithful participants, that have helped make CASology a success since we began back in July of 2012!  Thank you for all your wonderful support!

To get us started, Rahmat accepted the invitation to get this new feature started!  She has been a regular participant here at CASology and her beautiful CAS style has earned her many honorable mentions and a well-deserved win!

Hello everyone!!

I am Rahmat. I blog at I am very delighted to be featured here at CASology today. Thank you Melissa and team for having me here.

Crafting has been part of me for a long time. It started with embroidery first as a girl, thankfully which has found its way on cards as well now ;) I started serious card making since 2014, I always knew that I love clean and simple things, but it took me a couple of months to discover my very own card making style. I would definitely give credit to CASology for this self discovery of my style. Playing here week after week, I found my love for CAS, and I settled with CAS. I love trying different techniques, while keeping my cards CAS. Sponging and sewing has to be two things I love to do on my cards.

Besides card making, I love cooking, I also give cooking lessons in Indian cuisine, as you can see I didn’t go very far looking for a blog name ;) . I am a teacher by profession. I am in my late thirties, and mother to two teens( boy - 15 and girl - 13). I am from India, but have been very lucky to travel around many countries thanks to my husband’s job. Currently living in Macau for last eight years.

She has created a card to go along with this week's OPEN challenge!  Take a look!

Thank you so much for your support, Rahmat!  We love it when we see familiar names popping up in the gallery each week!  We do notice and now it's time to show our appreciation!

Be sure and give her a happy hello over on her blog, Cards and Cooking Corner!
