Hello!

Hello my friends! Hope you all had a great Christmas/Holiday time. We had plans for Christmas and we were very excited, but things happened and we all stayed at home SICK!!
We had to take our daughter to the ER with a 105.9 fever, we were really worried, after tests and waiting we found out she had the FLU!! She was really sick poor thing, this is the first time experiencing the flu, lots of night without sleeping, not a good thing.
Two days ago, my husband and I started feeling sick as well, so we are all sick now, we didn't go anywhere for Christmas, but we stayed together in good and bad times, LOL.
Since my daughter was sick, I worked on a couple of projects for the Spellbinders Craft Contest, the gallery has beautiful creations, I honestly thought I didn't have any chance, but I got a Honorable Mention, which makes me very happy :)

This is the project: I crocheted the baby hat and used several Spellbinders Dies as well as a couple of Heartfelt Creations Dies (manufactured by Spellbinders)


Also, as soon as I get more energy, I will start sorting lots of Stamps Sets I haven't used in awhile, lots of Gina K. Designs, and other brands, stay tuned! They are going to be very cheap!!

Hugs to all!
I will be taking few days to recover and get well.

God bless.

Merry Christmas (CAS)

Hello my friends! Hope you are having a great Wednesday, here sure it's cold outside.
So today I have a very "Clean and Simple" card, in fact when I made this card I timed myself to see if it was quick enough :) I will be teaching at my daughter's class next Monday, so timing is very important.
I will make the poinsettia flowers for all the kids, they will just stamp the sentiment and add the Washi Tape, sounds fun right? This took me only 10 minutes to create, I think the kids can do it in 30 :)

So, the dies are Layered Poinsettia from Spellbinders, the saying is from "Christmas Light Set" by Sweet'n Sassy Stamps and the Gold Star Washi Tape is from Latina Crafter.



Hope you like it!!
Have a great day!
