I'm back!!

Hello friends! I'm back!!! I just noticed that my last post was like 2 months ago, I can't believe it. I'm soo sorry about that, I just had to take a break from blogging because work was taking almost all my time and energy and Mr. Mojo left for vacations too, so I had 2 long months of looking at my scrapbook desk and feeling uninspired to create something.
My cousin gets married this sunday in California, unfortunately I'm not going to be able to go to her wedding because of work but my dad just left yesterday to California in representation of my family :) because my mom and brother can't make it either, I really hope he takes a lot of pictures! And of course... I wanted to create a card for my cousin and future cousin even though I'm sooo behind on challenges and card trends, etc. but before my "break" from crafting I bought 2 Penny Black stamp sets, I have to blame Kath, Debby and Carole on this because I'm starting to become a Penny Blank fan by looking at their gorgeous cards! Since I don't have any wedding related stamps I used one of my favorite  Penny Black stamp, I hope you like it, because oh boy! It took me a lot of time to decide on papers, sketch, embellishments!! I tell ya, I'm soo out of shape on making cards (if you can say it like that lol) and don't even mention scrapbook pages lol! I haven't done any in such a long time and I have a lot of pictures that are screaming to be use lol.

For this card I used s.e.i papers that I got from Michaels, prima flowers, Recollections pearls, Colorbok die cut leave, Fiskars border punch, Pop it! Shapes for the 3D look and ribbon/charm from my stash.

 I really like to do 3D looks on cards, it looks soo cute and it's fun! My Fiskars paper trimmer is asking for new replacement blades, but I don't know where to buy them because I heard bad comments on buying replacements blades online because Fiskars makes different kind of blades that you can't know for sure which ones are right for your paper trimmer :( soo I guess I just have to keep using these ones until I have a chance get new ones, but hey! I love the distress look it gives to the cards so I'm not really complaining lol.

I'd like to enter this card to the following challenges:
- Creative Card Crew: die cuts
- Magical Crafts Fortnightly: flower power
- Papertake Weekly: sketch
- The ABC Challenge: you and me
- Cute Card Thursday: summer theme

Happy stamping!

Happy Mother's Day!

Hi girls!! How was your weekend? Did you receive lots of gifts, cakes, cookies, chocolates and crafty goodies for mother's day? lol  I wasn't able to celebrate my mom yesterday because she went to a retreat with her co-workers to celebrate mother's day and nurse day but next weekend we're going to celebrate her. I'm not really sure what I'm going to give her, maybe a sewing machine (hers stop working a few months a go) or a new cell phone.
Anyways yesterday I had a some free time to create a card for her for mother's day, I was in such a hurry that I forgot to add glitter to the Pixie's wings. I remembered when I was editing the picture lol ohh well I guess I can do that later, after she receives it.

I used the current sketch of Friday Sketchers Challenge, it is a fun sketch made by the wonderful Jacque and guess what? They are celebrating their 2 year anniversary with a fun blog hop! How cool is that! I love blog hops, they are always fun and inspirational :) and you know what? Simon Says Stamp Challenge is celebrating their 1st anniversary! They're having a fun blog hop too.

Anyways, for this card I used one of my favorite CC design Stamps, she's such a cutie and fun to color. I used Prima flowers, Making Memories alphas, pearls from Recollections and ribbon from my stash. I really don't know the brand name of these cute papers because they were given to me by Carol, so thank you Carol!

I'd like to enter this card to the following challenges:
- Simon Says Stamp: celebration (mother's day)
- Friday Sketchers: sketch

For this card I've used my butterfly punch from Martha Stewart, brads and pearls from Recollections, paper from Autumn Leaves and the sentiment is from Imaginisce and was given to me by the talented Katrina. Thank you Katrina!

Well the first card I want to share with you is a card using the cute stamp Edwin with roses, I think this image is soo sweet...

Flower Tilda and blog candy alert!

Hi again! Here I am sharing another card I made this morning, it took me a couple of hours to make it because it is actually the first time I've tried to make a folded card, I've seen this kind of cards everywhere in blogland so I wanted to try it out.
Have I mention you how much I love Magnolia stamps?? I do!! The beautiful stamped image was given to me by Linda, she was soo sweet to give me some stamped images awhile ago and I've been trying to be really careful when I color these images because I have no more lol.

I used the Fiskars threading water border punch for the edges, Stamping Up! rub-on sentiment, some flowers and ribbon from my stash, I don't know who makes these papers but they are beautiful, aren't they? For the inside I used the retro flower punch and some pearls for the center of the flowers.

May you have a nice evening/day/night :)

Pinky Daisy

Hello crafters!! How was your weekend? I hope you had enough time to rest and have fun like me. I had a really busy week, so I was really looking forward to this weekend. Last sunday we had to move our clock 1 hour forward so it was really hard for me to wake up in the mornings lol I'm definitely not an early bird person. My fiancee's family came to town for vacations so I spent my free time hanging out with them, I haven't seen them since last summer so I was happy to see them again. I didn't have enough time to craft to craft last week so I squeeze sometime this morning to let my mojo flowing.
I really missed blog hoping last week but I'm afraid I can't do that anymore, even though work is not really busy, the team that monitors the Internet traffic installed a new proxy system and nobody at the office is able to see blogs from Wordpress, Blogspot or Typepad!!! I was feeling soo sad when I found out, two months a go they blocked Twitter (but I survived lol) but now I can't visit your blogs and leave comments, that really sucks! I can still read blogs with Google Reader as always but I cannot leave comments, ohh well I really need to get internet at my house one of these days, but in the meantime I'll squeeze time on weekend to visit everyone. Anyways... enough with the bad news and back to the card I want to share with you today.
I used a new stamp that Katrina gave me, she has a really nice blog, you should go and check it out. I believe this stamp is called Daisy from the Pink Gem Design stamps, I had fun coloring it.

The paper is from Stampin' Up!, the flowers are Prima and I can't remember who makes the pearls, brads and alphas lol. Anyways, I really like how this card turned out.

I'd like to enter this card to the following challenges:
- Simon Says Stamp: for children (girls)
- Magical Crafts Fornightly: animal antics
- Sketch and Stash: sketch
- Pink Elephant: nature
- Cute Card Thursday: mono mania (monochromatic)

Happy stamping :)

Beautiful spring and blog candy alert!

Hello my friends! How's your week going so far? Mine is going great! Today I'm going to meet two friends for dinner to catch up on things, specially wedding things, one of them is getting married in august so right now all she talks about is her wedding lol I guess I'm going to be the same in a couple of months and the other friend got married last year, so we're probably going to talk about wedding stuff and ask a lot of question to my newly married friend lol she now has experience on dealing with vendors, looking for venues, etc.
Anyways, yesterday I decided to make some time and create a spring card, I've seen a lot of beautiful spring cards in every blog I visit, so it wasn't really hard to get inspired. I'm so glad it is spring! Even though I like winter, I think I enjoy spring more because the weather is nice and I can go outside for a hike.

I used Stampin UP! paper and rub-on, some glitter for Tilda's wings, prima flowers, 3D dots for the dimensional look, ribbon from my stash and some sparkly gems. Maybe you can't see it very well but I doodle the stitching, I should probably draw the stitches bigger next time lol

I'd like to enter this card to the following challenges:
- Just Magnolia: sketch
- Magnolia Stamp Lovers: purple
- Magnolia Down Under: stitching
- Simon Says Stamp: spring with glimmer
- By the cute and girly: spring
- Cute Card Thursday: dimensions
- Charisma Cardz: spring
- Susie's Sassy Challenge: spring garden
- Stamp Something: doodle
- Papertake Weekly: open theme

And talking about spring, have you visited Kellie Winnell (owner of the fabulous store called Magnolia Down Under)??? If you haven't you need to head over to her blog, she's celebrating 100,000 blog hits with a wonderful giveaway!! Besides Magnolia stamps the other stamps I love are the CC designs stamps, they are adorable and guess what?!?! Kellie is giving away the spring kit!!

The first time I saw this kit I fell completely in love of the stamps, they are soo cute! So if you love CC design stamps as much as I do, I'm sure you don't want to miss this giveaway.

Have fun crafting!

Friends are the cookies of Life

Hello crafty friends! Today I want to share a birthday card I created yesterday for my boyfriend's best friend. I'm very happy with this card because you know that male cards are really difficult, I got the inspiration from the Sketch and Stash Challenge. The sketch was really easy to follow and the DT did an amazing job by sharing wonderful cards. I decided to use the first clear stamp I ever bought but for some haven't used yet, the stamp is called "Cookies of life" from Inkadinkado and it comes with a fun sentiment that says: "Friends are the chocolate chips in the cookies of life", what a true quote lol.

I used a DCWV design paper, clear stamp "happy birthday" sentiment from Studio G (I love Studio G stamps), some Pop it! shapes for the 3D effect on the furry guy and ribbon from my stash.

I'd like to enter this card to the following challenges:
- Fussy and Fancy Challenge: green
- Sketch and Stash Challenge: sketch
- Creative Card Crew: going dotty
- Stamp Something: distress
- Pile it on Challenge: furry friends
- Cupcake Craft Challenge: food and drink (cookies!)

Wedding wishes and good news!

Hello blogging friends!! How are you doing?? Well I've been MIA for awhile, between work and other things I had going on it's been really hard to sit down and create a couple of cards. I've been reading my Google Reader but I haven't had the time to leave many comments. Last week was a really busy week for me because I had to work after hours, I even missed my figure skating classes! Can you believe that? Before last week I got really sick, I had fever for about 2 days and I felt terribly... but I'm glad that this is over now, my work schedule came back to normal, I'm no longer sick and I started going to my figure skating classes! Yey!
Last week a friend from work got married, so everyone at work asked me to create a card for him and his new wife.

This is actually the first wedding card I have created, what do you think? I'm sorry for the picture, but my bf took this picture at the weeding before I gave the card to him, so... we were in a hurry lol. I used the new SEI papers I got for $6 dlls at Michael's! I really like to go to Michael's because you always find nice sales.
I really like what the sentiment says, it's really sweet: "Love is the Beauty of the soul". And because Love is the beauty of the soul and it's a beautiful gift God gave to us, I would like to share with you the good news: I'm getting married!!! Yes! You read that right, by God's will we will get married next year!

We're really excited! We've been dating for 3 years but we've known each other for about 5 years now, we became really good friends in college and at our senior year he asked me to be his girlfriend. I've been reading wedding blogs, wedding magazines and wow there are a lot of beautiful things you can do in a wedding, I really want to be organized and have everything done on time, I don't want to become a bridezilla lol

Anyways, I'd like to enter this card to the following challenges:
- ABC Challenge: Q for quotation
- Cute Card Thursday: happy anniversary
- Stamping Sisters in Christ: clean and simple
Thank you for visiting me today and may you all have a fun crafting week.

Loved by someone...

Hi girls!! How was your weekend? Did you enjoy the long weekend to celebrate Valentine's day? I sure did!! We had a fabulous weekend, on saturday my bf and I went to a special dinner the church prepared for all the church member in a delicious restaurant, then on sunday we spent time baking cookies! We've been wanting to do that for a looong time but didn't have the chance, after baking cookies we met my parents and brother at a restaurant for lunch and we went to the rink to have fun while figure skating. Even though it is cold outside it feels nice going to the rink and have fun. I was going to share pics of us baking cookies and skating but I forgot to bring my camera to work, so I can only show you the card I created for him.

At the end I decided to create a cute box (I forgot to take a picture) and a lovely card for him. I think I'll never be tired to say this but... I love Magnolia stamps!! They are soo cute, I only own one Magnolia stamp so I'm really careful when I color the stamped images Linda gave me.

I added a cute sentiment inside of the card which says:

I used what was left of my chatterbox pattern paper (so sad, I need to get more lol), Bazzill paper and flowers, rub-on is from Love Quotes by DCWV, border punch by Fiskars and the stamp sentiment is from Michael's. I also used some glitter for the wings, two red heart gems and one heart brad.

I'd like to enter this card to the following challenges:
- Oh La La Creations: love
- Simon Says Stamp: love

Did I tell you how excited I am? lol Today I have my figure skating class and I'm sure we will be talking about our favorite skaters, what we like about them and who deserves a medal, it is really hard to pick the best skater because there are many talented athletes going to this Olympics!
Anyways, talking about crafting stuff I want to share with you today another valentine's card I made.

For this card I used a Stamping UP! rub-on, Chatterbox pattern paper, bazzill flowers and ribbon. It is a really simple card, but I just love how the paper looks, I just wish I had bought more. I made this card for a friend, you see he likes this girl but he hasn't asked her out yet so maybe this valentine's day he will have the courage to say something with this card!

Anyways, I'd like to share with you two more valentines cards. Since reds and whites are the colors we usually see or use on valentine's season, I tried to think outside of the box and I created this card:

I used my bear stamp from Michaels, Fiskars border punch, Stamping UP pattern paper, some ribbon and my new pop-up heart punch from EK Success, at first I didn't like this punch because when I went to Michael's I was looking for the MS lace heart punch but I couldn't find it so I bought this one and after a few "tests" on paper I'm started to like it, I think the heart looks cute, what do you think? Smiley

I'd like to enter this card to the following challenges:

Anyways, I have two cards to share with you today and I'm very pleased on how the pictures came out. My bf taught me how to retouch pictures with Photoshop and wow! What difference!

I really like to make red cards, I don't know why lol but I'm sure loving this valentine's season. I used some Chatterbox and Paper Co papers, my Fiskars border punch, a Bazzill flower, some lace ribbon and a cute lace. The sentiment is from Deja Views.

I love you bear!

Hi crafters!! I'm in a really good mood today and you know why? Well because I'm finally making time to craft! Yey! Yesterday I had a terrible headache and I was feeling really tired and sored (for skating too much?? Mmm maybe lol), the headache is gone (thankfully!) but I'm still feeling a little bit sored I just hope that I can stand on my feet this evening at my figure skating class lol. I always say that the best medicine to get rid of headaches is a good laughter, sleeping or crafting! And I got all 3 done yesterday! I'm trying really hard not to stay up late and exercise, I have the exercise part cover because I have figure skating classes on Mondays and Wednesdays but... ohh my! Going to bed early? That's a really hard thing to do lol
Anyways, I want to share with you the card I made yesterday, it is a really clean and simple card.

I got this stamp at Michael's while I was on vacation in Dallas, I think the bear looks really cute holding that heart, don't you think? I used my Fiskars border punch, Basic Grey paper, I distressed a little bit the red Bazzill paper and I added some ribbon. The sentiment is another stamp I got at Michael's, I really like how it looks with the 3-D effect (I used Pop it Shapes from Ranger Industries), I know you can't really see it in this picture :( but it's been raining all day so no sunlight for me to take nice pictures.

Happy New Year!!

How's your year going so far?! Mine is going great! I'm sorry I haven't updated my poor blog lately, but Christmas preparations got me really busy, but ohh well now I'm back to the old routine and updating my blog often is one of my resolutions for this year.
Anyways, I've seen many girls sharing their favorite cards of 2009 on their blogs, I thought that was a good idea so I wanted to join in. Since I started blogging around june last year, I don't have many cards to choose from, so it wasn't hard to pick my favorite card:

I just love Magnolia stamps, they are soo cute, well designed and fun to color. I've been trying to share the Christmas cards I created for my family but I always forget to upload the pictures lol
Anyways, I'm starting the year by celebrating my bday at the end of this month, so be ready because I can see a blog candy soon and talking about blog candy... Quixotic Challenges is giving away a mystery gift pack to celebrate the New Year, so you probably don't wanna miss out.
Thank you for visiting my blog and for leaving lovely comments, I'm always happy to read them.
Happy crafting!
