You warm my heart

Hi everybody!
I'm so excited, today I'm hoping with all my coffee lovers crafty friends. Amy Tsuruta and Chaitali put a lot of effort in organizing this hop, called 'Spring Coffee Lovers Blog Hop'
I had a totally different idea in mind when I was planning in taking part of this hop, but this week my beloved Big Shot died, so I'm not able to use any die cuts, so embracing the situation I did paper piecing instead. I used the sketch and picture of the Fusion Challenge
So here you have it

Love how it turned out, I used an old Hero Arts set ( CL 188).
Thank you for visiting! Have fun hoping!
ETA I'm also entering this in the Simon Says Challenge Wednesday "Anything goes" and Simon Says Challenges Monday "No Rules".

Santa in February?

Hi everybody!
Due to ice and snow (in Alabama!), I came home from work early today and I came straight to my playroom craft room and decided to play a little bit and join some challenges.
So, I made a card for Merry Monday # 146, using a Santa. I have several Santa stamps, but today I decided to use some of my hoarded pattern paper.
I used the sketch at Fusion card challenge 

So here you have it.

All the papers are from "Lost and Found Christmas by MME".
And with the leftovers I made another one.

Thanks for your visit! Have a blessed weekend.

PTI Anniversary Month. I'm back!

Hi everybody!
It's been a while, hasn't it? So, here I am dusting off my old blog, as I'm itching to play in some challenges. It's not that I didn't craft at all all this time, it's just I didn't have the time to post, as I'm working more hours, and I didn't have good light to take pics etc. 
But anyway, today I'm showing you what I created for one of the challenges at PTI's blog, which is make something inspired by the talented Maile Belles, so here is my take in this card of hers.

I used the stamp set "Flutter by", embossed in gold the images and sentiment and then water-colored the butterflies using distress inks.

Thanks so much for your visit! Have a blessed rest of the week.
