Happy birthday.

Hi everybody!.
I hope you are having a lovely week. Beautiful day here in Hunstville. I want to share a card I made last night using this darling sketch from CAS(E) this sketch.
Very simple, I used a die from Simon Says Stamps, called 'gift box' and some scraps of card stock.
Thanks for visiting and have a blessed rest of the week.

Thank you, again.

Hello everybody!
More than a week has passed since my previous post. Oooops...
Last, wasn't a good week for me, and even though I made some cards, I wasn't in the mood to write a post. But here I am again, just to share a card I made on Saturday using  the Freshly Made Sketches, but with the bad weather I didn't have good light to take the pic, so here it is

I used a new stamp by Jane's Doodles wich I love, I think it's called Pretty Peonies, embossed in white on red cardstock, I did't have a sentiment that fits in a rather small space so I wrote it mysel. I'm happy with the result...
Thanks for visiting and have a blessed week.

Being thankful

Hi everybody, I hope you had a good start this week.
I've spent some time in my craft room on Sunday and I made several cards. 
I think the cards I most frequently give besides birthdays is 'Thank you' ones. Last week a very nice (and famous) crafter send me a bag of goodies that I won as a candy from her blog, the same day my husband came from work with a key chain that one of his co-workers brought for me from Mexico. Those two little  things  just made my day, so I'm sending cards to these two nice people.
I used the sketch from Retro Sketches # 59 for this one

I'm also entering this one into Simon Says Stamps Challenge, Spring flowers.
And this sketch from CAS-e this sketch for this one. .

Unusual colors for me on this one, but I'm challenging myself to leave my comfort zone.
Thanks for visiting, have a blessed rest of the week.

Hi everybody! I hope you are enjoying your weekend.
Grey day in Huntsville today, the kind that makes you want to get crafty (smile).
I was playing 'catching up' today, as I had a very busy week and didn't do much during the week. I have several birthdays this week, I started with one card for my dear brother-in-law, I used the sketch from Seize the birthday # 13.
Here is my take

I'll be back later, as I'm planning on making at least one more card.
Thanks for visiting.

Always Thinking of you.

Hi everybody!
Many bloggers I admire often combine several challenges. I decided to do that more often, so today I made a card (but the idea was lingering since Sunday) using the colors from Less is More  LIME & BLACK and this sketch from CAS-e this sketch.


I'm a little late for CAS-e this sketch so I'm only linking it to LIM.
Thanks for visiting.
Have a blessed rest of the week.

Cupcakes for Simon

Hi everybody, I hope you are enjoying your Sunday.
Even though is pretty outside I'm in my craft room having a little fun.
Simon Says Stamps Challenge blog is celebrating four years, yay! I want to celebrate with them so I made this card.

I paper pieced the cupcakes and put some glossy accents on top of them, and I used a doily which I rarely do, but I do like it, and the sentiment is from SSS called 'Like your style'.
Thanks for visiting.

Good Sketches

As some people I know can't pass a good deal, I noticed about myself that I cannot pass a good sketch. (Smile)
It happened to me twice this week, this time when I saw this sketch at Freshly Made Sketches.
So, I had to play along. Fortunately this Friday I worked only until 3, so I had some time to get crafty.
Here is my card.

I embossed the sentiment with white EP, I still got some 'dots' of EP in places where I don't want, but as Salvador Dali said "Have no fear of perfection - you'll never reach it."
I hope you find some good sketches or something that inspire you.
Have a blessed weekend.

Flowers and chevron 2.

If you read my previous post, you know it was just a 'happy coincidence' that I use chevron and flowers for my card. So I decided to make another card with similar elements ( I still had averything on my desk), this time specially to link to the CAS-ual Fridays Challenge
Here is the second one, and I have in mind a third one, but I need to read the rules again in case there's a limit for the entries.
Anyway, here is my card.

This one I'm sending to Gladys, a 13 years old girl from Honduras that we sponsor through 'The Forgotten Children Ministries'.
Thanks for visiting, have a blessed weekend.

Flowers and chevron 1

Hi everybody, during the week, visiting Lynn's blog, I saw this card.   I like everything she does, but for some reason that card stuck in my mind, so on Thursday evening I made a card using this sketch  at Tuesday Morning Sketches. It's my first time playing with this challenge, I love the sketch.

 As CAS-ual Fridays stamps is the sponsor this week, I decided to use one stamp of the set "Exclamations' which has several funny sayings like 'OHMYGAWSH' (My favourite), smile.

This is my take on the challenge.
The funny thing about my card, is that on Friday visiting the CAS-ual Fridays challenge blog (I spend too much time visiting blogs, I know) the challenge was to use Chevron and flowers, so I'm linking this to that challenge too.
Thanks for visiting, see you later.

Hi everybody!
I have some time to play today, so I made a card using scallops, according to the 'recipe' at Less is More. So here is my card, challenging myself to go 'CAS'.

I'm also entering this card to this challenge and this one at the fabulous Simon Says Stamps, 'Anything goes'
What do you think?
I made another card last week for a different challenge at Less is More, and when I was ready to send it to a friend, I thought it needed 'something' so I added some leaves and ribbon. Am I cheating the CAS? Ooops...
Here is the 'improved' version.

That's all from me today. Have a blessed rest of the week.
