Happy Thanksgiving

Hello dear friends! Hope you are having a fantastic day. I have to confess that lately I have been super busy and didn't have the time to schedule posts as I usually do. BUT I am creating super cute things for YOU!! Next week, you are invited to join us to a super duper Blog Hop you don't want to miss :)

For today I have  a card I made using the sketch #404 from Splitcoaststampers and the color inspiration from Touch Twin Markers! In fact, I used the Touch Twin Markers I won a couple or so weeks ago. I really like them, I just wish I could have more :)

The stamp set I used is from "Autumn Bounty" by Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps, (now, it's sold out, but you can get the image in a digital version HERE)
Since I didn't have a red TTM, I decided to do a little bit of Paper piecing, then added Star Dust Stickles. The Patterned Paper is from Fall Collection by Bo Bunny.

"Welcome Baby" Baby Announcement

Hello my friends! Hope you are doing well wherever you are. Fridays for me are usually "Clean House Day" so I cleaned my house, even my craft room is clean :) But I am so tired now, I wish I could hire the Clean House Fairy, LOL.

Anyway, let me show you the project I have for you today, it's a baby announcement and although it's in Spanish, it's very easy to understand :)
The stamps are from Latina Crafter, aren't those bears cute or what :)
For this project I used the bears and onesie form the set "Bebe" and the baby announcement is from "Presentando Nuestro Bebe" (Introducing our new baby)
Everything was stamped in Black Archival Ink, the bears were colored with Prismacolor Pencils.

I am submitting this project to the Moxie Fab Challenge: "Repetition"



Hope you like it!
Have a great day.

PS: Please keep the people from Central and Eastern WA in your thoughts and prayers, I am surrounded by fires and the smoke is so heavy around here that lots of activities have been suspended due to the bad air. I went outside for 3 minutes and ended up having a headache.
Thanks!

Hello my friends! Hope your day is good, thanks so much to all of you who sent me e-mails, I really appreciate it. My craft community is so fantastic. Well, let me tell you what happened yesterday to me, I was peeling a squash and in less than a second I peeled my finger nail as well (left thumb), I don't wish anybody the pain I had after it. Today my finger is doing better, but it's really hard to craft, I thought it would be since it is my left hand, but I found out I really need all my fingers and thumbs, LOL.

Anyway, let me show a card I made for Latina Crafter using the set "Sueña" (Dream), perfect for a Quinceañera (tradicional and very important birthday party for a 15 year old girl)

This card fits to the Moxie Fab Challenge" Focal Point".
