Then after that I had a Birthday party for DD and DH, everything was great!! We had few people coming over and celebrating the brithdays with us. DD had a lot of fun and ended up so exhausted she feel asleep on the couch, it was kind of cute to see her there, of course I took a picture, great for a scrapbook page, hmmm I don't scrapbook, LOL.
I have created few cards that I haven't taken pictures yet, why??? because my right hand has been inflamated, well not my whole hand, just my middle finger, the pain was really intense. I cut a couple of images and afterthat I started having the pain, I am a right hand person, so it has been really difficult to do my stuff around the house and also create!!
I will be back with some projects to show. I hope you come back.
Have a great day!!

I was having a pretty nice and quite day today, listening my favorite music in Spanish, oh I was singing and singing loud and louder, so nice!!!!. DD is doing very well, still coughing but a lot better, she has been bouncing like crazy indication that she doesn't feel sick anymore, right? DH killed the ugly mouse yesterday, oh my I screamed like crazy when I saw it, maybe sounds funny, even I got an asthma attack, not funny at all. Anyway, the critter is dead and I hope I don't have to see more in my house anymore. I just wonder from where they come in, my house is new, we have been living here less than 2 years, oh well, I was saying about my quiet morning so I decided to navigate and check some blog out. I stopped at Kristina Werner's blog and Mojo Monday Blog and I decided to play these challenges.
As you may know Kristina's challenge is a Color Challenge, this time: Black,White and Gray, fabulous combination and Mojo Monday is a Sketch Challenge.

Anyway, today was one of those days! I woke up this morning and I found out I forgot to start my dishwasher, then I saw some little things on my pantry floor and I think we have a mouse again!!!! I freaked out, I really hate mouse/mice, they scare me, yes you can laugh. So I checked everywhere and started cleaning my house again (I usually clean house on Mondays), after a while Becca started jumping like crazy so I knew she was feeling muchhhhh better.
Anyway, after all those things I decided I wanted to stamp, but I don't know why I wanted to use Kraft, LOL. I tried a card and I didn't like it, so I cut more and more paper and realized that I needed a plan, so I have tons of scraps on my desk looking at me telling they need to be use to.
Here are my cards:
Each day provides its own gifts: Very simple card, I stamped the image twice onto my Kraft CS using Basic Brown Ink. The sentiment was stamped in Riding Hood Red. I used my Stamp-a-ma-jig to have a great position of image and sentiment. The bottom border was made with corner punch and a 1/16 hole punch. The image was colored with colored pencils and markers, then I added a little bit of Stickles.
Card Recipe :
Card stock: Kraft, Pink Pirouette, Cranberry Crisp (retired)
Stamps : SU Artfully Asian.
Ink: Basic Brown, Riding Hood Red.
Embellishments: Green button, DMC Embroidery thread.
Accessories: Corner punch, 1/16 hole punch, Mini glue dots, SU Dimensionals, Stickles ( Gold, Diamond and Waterfall), Stam-a-ma-jig, sponges.

Anyway, today is smARTworks Tea Party, our host this week is Dina and she challenged us to CASE each other. I had to CASE one of Peggy's creations, so I chose this card. I changed the image, the colors and kept the lay out as an inspiration. I would say it was a really hard decision just to choose one.
For my card I Stamped the daisies in Real Red, then I sponged the borders in Pretty in Pink. The sentiment was stamped in Stazon Black. I used scallop scissors for my oval. I added a couple of brads and Pink Ribbon.
Card Stock: White, Red.
Stamps: Daisy Trio #2 by smARTworks.
Ink: Real Red, Pretty in Pink, Stazon Black.
Embellishments: Gold brads, Offray Pink RIbbon.

Now, head over to Susan (for Peggy's too), Dina, Donelda and Donna and enjoy all the CASEs.

Today my DD woke up coughing really hard, I invited her to come to my bed and stay with me, sadly she had a really bad cough and my bed paid the price, (not details). Poor Becca, she is not feeling good at all, but she wants to go to AWANA tonight and also she wants a piece of Chocolate Pie, LOL, sometimes I am not sure if she really feels sick or not.
Anyway, the other day I made this CAS card, but I forgot to post it here. I got the inspiration from a little add on the EVERYDAY Magazine!!. I used one of the pretty images from Cookie Plate#1 . The image was heat embossed using White Craft Ink and White Embossing powder. The sentiment was stamped in Certainly Celery Ink. I added some lace ribbon and a couple of rhinestones, I sponges the borders with Mellow Moss Ink. Super quick and easy card.

I have been thinking what to do and it was crazy!! I talked to my husband about and he smiled at me like are you too excited about to make a card?? Hello?? The prize is $250!!! I decided to give it a try and see how far I can go, I hope I can go very far, LOL.
The rules and all the info is HERE
So here is my creation:
Happy Mother's Day Card
This is a 5"x 5" square card. I started with a Pirouette Pink base, then Brown, PP and Bella Rose DP, the base for my image is the same Brown, Pink. The image was stamped in Stazon Black. I did it 3 times. The first image is the bse, the second is the woman's body and the 3rd one is the flower pot and flowers. I colored the images with Watercolor pencils.
