HAPPY HOLIDAYS!!!

Hi everyone, Christmas is just around the corner.  Wow, how fast it is going!!!  I hope you all have a very, very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year full of all the wonderful things we all deserve.  

I have two challenges to show you.  Sorry I didn't have enough time to make them separate.  It's been like crazy at home with the kids.  So the first challenge is from Sweet Stampin'.  The theme is "Seeing Double", you can add 2 flowers, or 2 buttons, or 2 tags, double anything.  And the second challenge is from Dis Digi Designs and the theme is a very easy one, "Christmas", don't you all have a Christmas card already made?  Just go to both these blogs to see all the beautiful projects our DT's have prepared for your inspiration and maybe you could win one of our wonderful prizes, or maybe both.

I hope you like my card and please leave me some love, LOL!  Thank you and see you soon!

ANYTHING BUT A CARD - CHRISTMAS

Hi everyone!!!  This is my second post for today.  It's time for another challenge at Di's Digi Designs.  The challenge is to create anything but a card but it has to be Christmas, it could be a tag, a bag, a box, anything.  Please go to our blog to see all the beautiful things our DT's have prepared for you and to win wonderful prizes from our sponsors.  My post is a little late, so I don't know if my tag would be there, but you can see it here, LOL!   


The image is, of course, from Di's Digi Downloads and is coloured with Copics.  Thanks for visiting.

EXCITING NEWS!!!

Hi everyone.  Wow, how fast time goes by!   I've been missing for a month or so.  I have been stressed  out working on nearly a hundred of invitations for different activities, but I'm free again with no mojo and without any Christmas card made.  I guess this Christmas will be a bit different, LOL!
So to the big news.  I have been selected to be part of the DT team for Sweet Stampin'.  Yeyyyy!!!  I'll be working with them for a couple of months, hopefully a lot more, LOL, and here's my first card.  The challenge is to use dies/punches in your card, easy peasy, don't you think?  Check our blog to participate in our challenges and to win wonderful prizes from our sponsors.I hope you like my card.

PS:  I don't know why it looks a little bit slant, in real life it's not like that.


MAKE AND TAKE

Hello again!  Just a quick post to show you a card I prepared for a Make and Take for a group I'm a member of.  I hope the girls like it as much as I do.  This card can be used for a birthday, St. Valentine, Christmas or almost anything.  The image is one of the new stamps from Magnolialicious and it's coloured with Distress Markers, which is my favorite type of colouring.  Enjoy it!!!

P.S.  On December 1st I will be teaching a class on how to colour with Distress Markers at Imaginic Scrapbook Store in Caguas, Puerto Rico.  Call them for more info.

DESK CARD

Hi everyone!  Just a quick post to show you a card I made for a coworker who wants something nice to put on her desk, but it had to be related to people who fights the terrible cancer disease.  I hope she likes it and put a smile on her face.

MORE THAN 1 DIE CUT/PUNCH

MYSTICAL CREATURES

Hi everyone, sorry I'm late with my post.  Yesterday was a family day and we were at Coffin's Island (Isla Caja de Muerto).  It is called like that because when you look at it from another nearby island it looks like a coffin.  But the Island is beautiful.  See the pictures to see what I mean:







Isn't it beautiful?  Now on to my card.  Our new challenge this time at Di's Digi Designs is MYSTICAL CREATURES, so we want to see those fairies, mermaids, unicorns, dragons, etc.  I love fairies, so I had to go with one.  At Di's Digi Downloads you will find plenty of those beautiful creatures.
