My first Magnolia Card!

Hi scrappers!! How's your week going so far? Mine is going great! Today is my mom's bday!! And we're going out to celebrate Smileys, we are going to take her to her favorite restaurant and then to the mall to buy her a gift. I think moms are very hard to surprise, specially mine! Because she's always suspicious about things lol,  so I decided to play it safe this time and instead of giving her a surprise, I'll just go with her to buy the gift. And of course! I made her a card last night with a Magnolia stamped image Linda gave, thank you Linda!! The stamped images are really cute, I can't wait to create more cards with them! So here's the card:

I used a past Midnight Madness sketch that I liked, I tried to distress the paper but I'm not sure how to do that yet, so you can't really see my attempt in this pictures lol but "googling" around I found a perfect tool for this: the Edge Distresser (Heidi Swapp) or the Tim Holtz Paper Distresser! I'm not sure which one is better but you can always go to to check what are the best craft products.

Anyways, thank you so much for visiting my blog and before I leave I recommend you to go to the Bon's Scraps site, Bon is celebrating her 100th post with a fabulous candy.
I hope you have a wonderful day!
Happy scrapping!

Pinky Ballerina

Hi scrappers! Are you ready to take a rest this weekend? I am! I really enjoy weekends because I get to go visit my parents and relax a little while and of course I get to craft a little bit with my mom. I  hope to get many cards done this weekend, because there are a few challenges I want to enter. I've learn that challenges are a fun way to learn more tips on creating cards. I've been wanting to have time to create a layout of Ruby, but I just can't find the time to do it. Hopefully I can do that this weekend.

Anyways, I want to share with you this card. I'm not really into pink, but I thought that this paper was really cute and the ballerina stamp too so I decided to give it a try and enter this card to Carol's Sketch Fun! I've missed the last two challenges, but I'm on time to make it to this one.

I really like how the sketch turn out even though I had difficulties with the flowers, I wasn't sure if using brads would be a good idea but I think it looks ok. I tried to make it looks 3-dimensional, I'm not an expert in photography but I hope you can see it.

Well I hope you have a great weekend! Thanks for visiting my blog and for leaving lovely comments! Smileys
