Sweet Little One and Friends.

Happy Saturday my friends. I hope you are having a great day. I spent my last few days playing with DD Hide and Seek, Tag You Are In, Babies, Coloring, Watching movies, Baking cupcakes and Eating Ice Cream,!! So healthy, LOL!! and not stamping at all!!
We are having so far the hottest days of Spring, yesterday we got 96F at 11:00am, really hot. I also spent some time gardening, well working on my pots, I don't have a real garden yet, we hope soon.

Last night, DD was playing on the computer and I had some time to make a couple of cards. Cute and Simple ones. I am practicing a lot coloring with Prismacolors and OMS. At the beginning it was a big frustration because nothing I colored look good, now I think I am getting better, I need more practice,but I am improving :)

Sweet little one: I used again a digi image from Dustin Pike, colored it and cut it out. The sentiment is from Combo Sentiments by smARTworks. My card is based on a sketch from Clean & Simple Blog.

Card Stock: White, Pink Pirouette, Kiwi Kiss, Yellow (Textured)

Friends: I think this card is really cute, no layers, no sewing, no dimensionals, LOL. I stamped the image from ABC-Fresh Picked Set by smARTworks onto White CS using Stazon Black Ink. It was colored with Prismacolor Pencils and OMS. The sentiment is also from Combo Sentiments by smARTworks.

Also, last Friday one of my uncles in Peru passed away. It was a very sad moment for me. I wish I could have been there. He battled a lung disease and his body after long time fighting gave up.

I created this card to send to my aunt (my mom's sister) and let her know I care and I miss them very much.

More Mother's Day cards!!

As I told you in my previous post, yesterday I made some Mother's Day Cards and also used different sketches I found on blog land.

Here is a card I made using Heather Scott's sketch. She has an awesome blog and every Monday she posts a different sketch.
My card has a lot of pink and red, really pretty for a special MOM. In this card I positioned the square part on top of the rectangle part, it should be the other way. I realized I made a mistake after I finished my card. It was too late to fix it, but I like it this way anyway.

Paper: SU Bella Rose.
Stamps: Mother's Day (Verve).
Ink: Riding Hood Red.

For my second card I used the sketch from CPS Systems Blog. My card is 5" x 5" square. The paper in this card is from Rhubarb Tart Collection Pack ( Memory Box Paper). The big rhinestones are from Target $ spot. I got more than 100!! for only a dollar. This rhinestones work great in big cards. The scallop oval was made with my Coluzzle and scallop scissors, then it was sponged with RHR ink.

Card Recipe:
Card Stock: Kiwi Kiss, Riding Hood Red, White.
Paper: Rhubard Tart (Memory Box Paper)
Stamps: Mother's Day ( Verve)
