CHRISTMAS IN JULY... AND GOODBYE!

Hi everyone!!! It's time for another challenge at Card Mania.  The theme is "Christmas in July". My image is a digi from our sponsor Bugaboo Stamps.  Isn't it funny?  It is colored with Prismacolor pencils.  


The sentiment is from Latina Crafter, who are celebrating their two years in the market.  Congratulations Diana and thanks for all your kindness!  You are very special to me!


The photos doesn't look good. A have a camera that hates the white color, LOL. Everytime I have a card with white as a main color, the photos look dull and kind of dark.  Sorry, maybe this Santa can bring me a new camera for Christmas, let's see.  LOL!



The last thing I want to say is THANK YOU all for your support throughout all these years and for all your lovely comments.  This will be my last post here (or maybe I'll come back once in a while, I still don't know, this is a hard habit to break, LOL!).  This decision comes in part because about a few weeks ago I was in a Scrapbook Convention and I was taking a class with Teresa Collins.  She told us her story about the reason why she does scrapbook and it hits my heart so hard that made me think about my priorities in this hobby that is leaving my kids scrapbooks so they know and love our family history.  Her story inspired me so much that I decided to put my priorities in order.  Also my kids are demanding so much from me that it's hard to keep up with my challenges.  They are my life and I want to give them quality time and leave them a treasure to keep about our family.  Again, thank you!  Bye, bye!!!

CLEAN AND SIMPLE

Hi everyone! My wish to all moms is that they have a wonderful day full of blessings and happiness along with their loved ones. Congrats to all those great moms out there, including my beautiful mom. Love you!

It's time for another challenge at Sweet Stampin'.  The theme is CAS (clean and simple) cards. I chose to make a male card (what a better excuse to keep it simple, LOL). Although I love all the men in my life, male cards are not my favorite because I can't let my imagination fly, no flowers, no blings, no bows, etc., but I made it and keep it very simple. I hope so!

MAGNOLIA DOWN UNDER

Hi everyone!!!  I'm submitting this card for the DT Call of Magnolia Down Under.  I really, really hope that you consider me for this position. I've always dream to be part of the Magnolia team and I know I'm qualified.  I love {read: addicted to} those stamps, LOL!

Let me talk a little about me.  I'm from the tropical Island of Puerto Rico.  Happily married with two children. Although I'm a legal secretary, I have always been attached to crafts. For about 10 years I was instructor for a jewelry designer school, but now I'm almost a full time mom (I have a part time at a law office).  I've been scrapping and cardmaking for almost 7 years.  I've been DT for the following blogs:  Di's Digi Designs, Scrapbooking Galicia (on this blog I gave tutorials), Paper Cupcakes, and Aud Sentiments.  I've been Guest Designer for Latina Crafter and Come and Get It Challenges.  I'm an active DT for Sweet Stampin' and Card Mania.  I'm also teaching classes on how to color with Distress Inks and how to mini albums for a local store.  

You are welcome to look throughout my blog to see my work and know my style.  Here is my Anything Goes card, hoping that you like me!!!  Wish me luck!!!

OH SO GIRLY!

Hi everyone, time for another challenge at Sweet Stampin'. The theme is all things GIRLY.  Another easy one.  This time I went out of my comfort zone in terms that I used bold colors and lots of, what I consider, big embellies.  Those of you who knows me personally knows that I'm a very shy person and I always feel afraid that I might exaggerate in this or that.  I don't know, what you think?
