Proverbs 31:30

Hello dear friends! Hope you are having a great day. Spring is the season for nice weather and also for crazy allergies. Oh goodness, if everything could be just the way we wanted it, so far we haven't had crazy rain, but the last 3 days we had crazy winds!!

Anyway, I want to show these cards I made few days ago to send to the ladies who teach and help with my daughter's Bible study group. She goes to a group called GEMS (Girls Everywhere Meeting the Saviour) and last week was the last study for the year.

I made 4 cards, pretty much the same design, just the front stamping was a little different. I used "Precious Poppies" set from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps, added few gold sequins and die-cut these cute little butterflies from a very old paper I found that day, LOL. Hard to see but the pink cardstock is metallic and shines beautifully, this is from CutCardstock.


Also, I just want to share a cute picture! My neighbor got a pregnant pig few weeks ago and mama pig "Blue" delivered 12 little piglets last Monday night, sadly 2 didn't make it, but yesterday I went to visit them and they are the cutest thing on earth!! Seriously, I just wanted to pick one and take it home with me. Happily, we are just neighbor so I can come and visit any time :)

Hello...

Hi everyone! Hope your day is fantastic! I was planning on posting yesterday, but I had a little accident, I feel down while mowing the lawn and after that I was in so much pain that the only thing I did was just rest. Today the pain still there, I think I broke my tailbone "again", yes! I broke it when I was 16 and I spent 4 miserable months in pain until the bone fused. Anyway, I will take one day at the time, just hope it doesn't take 4 months to heal again.

I have a card using Latina Crafter Stamps, this set is called "Hola, yo soy" (Hi, I am/ my name is), fun to create cards or tags. For the felt flowers I used "Mi flor Favorita" dies.


These are the products I used for this project:

I will try to update the info later, being in one spot is painful now.

Hope you like it!!
Have a great day!!
