Reto para Latinas en America

Hola everyone!

Hope all is well out there :-)  I've had a long week.  Working long hours and taking care of my grand babies and hardly no time to scrap.  I know right!!!!!  It's crazy.  That's why I made this card as fast as I could.  LOL  An hour in a half!!!  And that's because my grand daughter are on their way.  Which of course I'm happy about.  They make me so happy.  So here it is!  I made it for Challenge #33 at Latinas en America.   and the challenge was "let's use lace"

I used paper from Glitz call Happy Travels.  Miss Anya Bags from the Greeting farm stamp, that my beautiful sister Yvonne bought me.   And the embellishments are from  Melissa Frances.  I also stitched the card with my sewing machine.  Then of course lace from my stash. 

So I hope you guys like it and continue to have a great summer.  Please tell me what you think.  I love hearing from you.

Sweet Nothings Creative Challenge

Hello Everyone!

I'm back!  Hope everyone is staying cool and having a great summer so far.  Today I completed a card for the SNSC July 2012 Creative Challenge.  My scrappy sister Yvonne is in their DT and when I went to take a look at what she created,  I fell in love with the "sweet nothings" stamps.  I took a look at their store and there was Sweet Sophie.  So I ordered her right away and ran home to create a card for the challenge.  This is the sketch you have to follow.

Talk about inspiration, right?  I was totally inspired by it, and so this is what I created.

I used Sweet Sophie.  Isn't she just adorable.  I then used pattern paper from K & Company "Handmade" which I picked up at Scrapbucks.  The cute butterfly and the flowers are from the Melissa Frances embellishments.  Except the white and red flower.  That and the bow was from Donna at  She gave me those on a swap we had last month.   The mushroom is from the eyelet outlet I picked up at the Expo Center.  Button and twine are from my stash.  Then the sentiment is from Stephanie using the "Everyday Sentiments" at  I just love her stamps.  I used them a lot. :-)

So that is my entry!  I hope you all like it.  Let me know what you think.
Have a great day!

Cute simple cards

Hello there!

Is it hot out there or what!!  Hope every one is having a great summer so far.  I've been working and trying to stay cool.  Which means,  I'll stay in doors.  LOL  I did take my grand daughters to the water park a couple of times.  Lucky for me it's walking distance.

So today I just wanted to share with you a few cards I made last month.  My husband's job was having an event for a Children's Hospital.  One of the things they can pick from a list of things to volunteer, was making cards.  So he asked me if I wanted to participate.  I said "yes" of course!  Since I love making cards.  So my beautiful friend Friday and I made some very simple cards.  I use several different cricut cartridges.

The idea was to make these very sick children smile.  I hope and pray that I did with my cards.

Well,  I hope you all stay cool, and have a wonderful 4th of July.
Thanks so much for dropping by :-)
