White and Brown

Happy Friday everyone!!!! I hope you are having a great day.
This morning I tried the Limited Supplied Challenge, I had an idea of what I wanted to create, but when I was working on my card, this didn't come out the way it was on my brain, LOL.
So, I decided to create something different, well I would say I cased a card from my good friend Mary Fish, she has a lovely blog : Stampin' Pretty . Yesterday I saw a card she made in white and black, really pretty one, so I tried it on white and brown (I added some Close to Cocoa CS too!!)

I didn't embossed the image, I used Chocolate Chip Craft ink and I added a bella bubble in the middle, just for the little touch.

Here is my card:

Sunset at the beach

Happy Thursday everyone, today we have a beautiful day, sunny, clear and not to hot!!!! (that is the best part). I don't like hot days, I prefer breeze and cool days, LOL. Rebecca is waiting for the hot days so we can enjoy the pool, well I would say mommy and daddy because for her the water is always cold, LOL.

Anyway, today on SCS is Ways to Use it: Ways to Get Packing. Summer is great for vacation, relaxation and outside work. The first thing to came to my mind was "Enjoy the Beach" Sunset are always beautiful and the best place is at the beach. I remember those days in Peru when I went camping (Kawaii beach, the best) and we enjoyed the sunset there, Ohh those days. I hope soon I could go there and show Rebecca my favorite places there, I think now she will enjoy and remember that better (last time we went there she was only 9 months old)

Here is my card: I used Sponging technique.

Card Recipe:
Stamp: SU Summer by the Sea.
Card Stock: White (GP), Blue, SU Bashful blue, SU Groovy Guava.

Ink: Orange, Yellow, Silver pigments, SU Bashful Blue, SU Buckaroo blue.

Bright Punched Vases

Hi again, I had some time to create another card when Becca was taking a nap.
I made this card for May Card Contest on the Wish Rak Group. I used Sketch #143 (SCS).
This time I used oval punches and no stamps!!!! I followed Michelle Zindorf's tutorial . You should give it a try, it is a really fun technique.

I don't own any flower punch, so I used Bride' flowers from Michael's and the little green Prima flowers. I colored the bride flowers using Yellow pigment.

Card Recipe:
Card stock: Green (non SU), Su Green Galore, Su Only Orange, SU Yo Yo Yellow, White (GP).
Ink: Yellow, Orange, Silver, Chocolate chip pigments.
Embellishments: SU ribbon, Bella baubles, Bride flowers, Prima flowers.

I hope you like it.
Have a blessed night.

Heart speak

Happy Wednesday everyone. Today I have a lot of yard work to do, I started last night and I am feeling a little bit tired already, but DH and I are cleaning the biggest part of our property that has lots of weeds, I hate weeds. We are dreaming one day we will have the most beautiful yard and why not a perfect garden too!!!!

Anyway, today on SCS is Sketch Challenge Day . I would say I tried the sketch with a completely different set and colors, but at the end I didn't like the results, so I tried again and I love this card. I hope you too.

I received this pretty image from the WR group , this is from SU Heartspeak set. I colored the basket using Sargent Art Colored Pencils, I used Tan, Orange and Brown. the flowers are colors with Red Orange, Red, Rose,Peach, Yellow and Pink, after that I over colored them with SU markers. The leaves are colored with Yellow Green.
I sponged the middle are and the diamond white CS with Orange pigment ink.
I added a couple of Bella Baubles in the right bottom corner.
The orange ribbon is from Walmart.
I hope you like it.
Have a blessed day.

Thinking of you

Hello everyone, today here is cold as a winter day (crazy weather), my allergies and sinus pressure are bothering me again.
Early in the morning I didn't have any mojo to stamp. I spent my morning cleaning my house and homeschooling Rebecca, she is doing so great, few more days and school is over, I have to think of something to keep her busy, well, she keeps me busy all day, LOL.
Few weeks ago my uncle had a heart bypass surgery, he is doing better now, my cousins are taking care of their dad. My aunt had a surgery last week; both are my mom's siblings; I love them very much and you don't know how much I miss them.
This morning I spent time praying for them, my siblings, my dad, I wish I could be there and hug them all day. Last time I went to Peru, Rebecca was only 9 month-old baby, now she is 4!!! Now she is more into speaking Spanish, she is so funny, she repeats everything I say, well sometimes her way and with a very heavy accent, but she wants to learn more Spanish now, so I am taking advantage of that.

This afternoon (when Becca's was taking a nap) I tried a couple of Sketch Challenges: Beate's and Taylor's. I always try to play their challenges, they are so talented.

Beate's Weekend Sketch Challenge # 49:

Hello everyone, I hope you had a great day (here is 7:35 pm), usually at this time I am relaxing myself after being busy all day. Today I spent part of my morning watering my plants and relaxing outside until I couldn't deal with the heat, so I decided to go back inside and tried a couple of cards. DH was mowing the lawn and poor guy came back so reddd, LOL, cooking himself direct to the cold water.

Anyway, today I tried Limited Supplies Challenge, using an alphabet as a main focus on the card.
I sponged the orange and white CS with orange and yellow pigment, I stamped some flowers using green pigment around the borders. I sponged as well some bride flowers from Michael's with yellow and orange ink. The felt flowers are my creation, I cut them myself, pretty ha?

Flowers Hello

Hello everyone, Happy Thursday!!! Another day and another reason to celebrate life.
I am feeling a little bit better today, I slept better last night than nightbefore. Still taking my medication, helps me to feel better, but takes all my energy, ohhh well, I haven't had any serious chest pain in the last two days, that is good.
Today my inspiration still blocked, I haven't created anything singular, so I cased Debbie Olson's card, I love Debbie and all of her creation, she has been so great with me.

Today is another challenge day on SCS, "Ways to Use it" and today is ways to use 'inchies". I never heard about it, and I don't own any "inchies" so I created my own (a little bit bigger, LOL)
My little squares are 1.5", I hope its qualifies for the challenge. I colored my images (Thanks Bethany, I received them through he Wish Rak group) with colored Pencils and then added some SU markers.
I sponged the borders with gold and cranberry crisp ink and the image with some yellow pigment ink.
I stamped the sentiment in cranberry crisp.

Paper: From MDC.

Hello everyone. I hope you are having a great day, better than me.
I woke up at 2 am with a terrible headache, palpitations, I tried to go back to sleep, but my headache was getting worse, finally I got up, took an aspirin and I decided to watch TV. DH woke up at 5:30 and I heard he was looking for me, he went to the living room and asked me if I was OK, I said I feel better now, he wanted to stay home today, I told him I will call you if I need you, right now I am feeling super tired, I really want to go back to sleep, but I don't have anybody to watch Rebecca, so I suppose I will sleep when she takes her nap.

Thanks a lot all of you who sent me e-mails, I appreciate your words and prayers.
