Para Ti

Wow! I got this card done just in time! I created the card for Latina Crafter's color challenge and forgot about the time difference! LOL The image is super adorable I made a purchase at Tickled Pink Stamps and got her as a bonus. Her name is Lil Valentine Cherrie Tag.
The sentiments are from Hoy es tu dia and Mi flor favorita .   I'm also entering the card to Tuesday Morning Sketches challenge.

Happy Birthday

I love this image! She's a cutie with her "trenzas"!  She is from Teroladas, "Corazoncito" ..I just love her braids!  The Spanish sentiment by Latina Crafter, "Hoy es tu dia".  Except for the card base, all papers are from scraps and buttons from my stash! Woohoo! Love that!

I used Latina Crafter's Sketch # 10

I'm so lovin' the Flower Bird from Paper Smooches; the images are free digital stamps, including the flowers on the background paper.  I followed the color challenge listed below, the flowers may look orange but they are more of a strawberry color.
The kraft paper was embossed with The Stamps of Life embossing folder.  The burlap ribbon is from Michael's dollar bin.

LUFP Challenge No. 3

It's time for another PINK challenge over at Link Up for Pink!  We have two sponsors, Bugaboo Stamps and 3 Girl Jam.  Here's my BCA PINK card:

I used JJ Calendar Months - May and the Baby Pink crinkle ribbon by 3 Girl Jam.
Here's how I created the background paper:  First, you don't need to have Photoshop, you can easily use Word or Inkscape (free software).   I used digital pattern paper...I sized it to print at 6"x6".   I then took the Think Pink sentiment copied and paste over the digital paper, print and walla!  I had this beautiful Think Pink paper!  The hearts with the pink awareness ribbon is from my own digital/printable paper I shared during last year's big Link Up.  You can find it here.  The sentiment is also my own creation, click on the image to download.

I printed the chevron and dotty paper, the arrows, and the green journal spot.  I love the green in this kit, well I love it all!  Here are the pages:


Latina Crafter, I followed sketch 10 for the top portion of page 1.  The sentiment reads "me siento mejor" translation, "I feel better".

Eat, drink and be merry

I'm truly loving juicing: grocery shopping and searching for juice recipies and light cooking recipes.  I'm part of a Facebook for Smashers and they had a challenge this weekend to use a digi or traditional stamping, so here are my pages:

The banner stamps and the sentiment are both dollar stamps. The journal tag and cut outs are from KaiserCraft, Nan's Collection (I won this from The Paper Parade save 20% off your order 'til July 4th). 
Note to self: when coloring directly on the page, make sure to use coloring pencils to avoid bleeding.

Do you see the doodle heart frame?  I had this stamp set by Autumn Leaves for over 2 years and just now used it! Ha!  The Sprout Fairy is by Paper Makeup Stamps it's only available as a silhouette digi in their shop.  I used a "new to me" flower stamp by Stampin' Up to great the flower bed....and added a strip of washi tape I purchased at Ginger Snap Scraps store.

PMS "Things with Wings"
Facebook Smashaholics - use a digi or traditional stamps.

Paper Makeup Stamps, KaiserCraft and The Paper Parade are all Link Up for Pink sponsors.....woot woot!!

How cute is this birdie!  It's from The Alley Way Stamp set, Priceless Joy.  I used the pattern paper from MME, Quite Contrary Jill and Jack .  In keeping with the CPS sketch I added a dove tail strip and stamped the whimsy hearts....cute!  Have you noticed, I've used buttons on my last three cards? LOL

feliz día dad

As much as I look like my Dad, I'm not a gardener like him.  So I thought this image from Tickled Pink making mud pies is more like me! LOL   The Spanglish sentiment was created with two different stamp sets by Latina Crafter; Mi Flor Favorita and Hoy es tu día.  I masked a few words to create it.
 and here's a picture of my dad! ¡¡Feliz día del padre!!
