Cute Pixie

Hi crafters! How was your weekend? Mine was relaxing, I had time to rest a little bit and spend time with my family :) This is the first time I've inked up this cute little stamp from CC Design stamps, I fell in love with this stamp since the first time I saw it but for some reason I forgot I had, not that I have many stamps lol anyways, I think I'm getting better at making bows, I don't have the bow easy tool but I've been practicing, you know.. practice makes perfect :)

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!

Sweet Roses

Hi girls! How's life treating you? I've had a crazy week and little time to blog, I definitely miss checking all your blogs but... good news!! I'm finally going to have internet at home!! Yey!! I just have to wait for the cable guy to install the internet and that's it, I'll have internet with no restrictions :) I didn't realize until now how addicted I am to Twitter and Google Reader lol.
Anyways, I did have time this week to create 2 cards, I'm definitely improving right? 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... I picture Edwin feeling so nervous to give Tilda these beautiful roses, aww it looks like he caught the spring bug by trying to win Tilda's heart lol

I used the current sketch from the Just Magnolia Challenge blog but I was too late to enter :( oh well, I like Mina sketches, they are always fun and easy to make. Thanks Mina for this fun sketch!
For this card I used DCWV  paper, Stamping UP! design paper, some glitter for Edwin's wings, my retro flower punch for the red flowers. The flowers, ribbon, charm and bling are from my stash.

I'd like to enter this card to the following challenges:
- Simon Says Stamp: things with wings
- Stampin Sisters in Christ: flowers
- ABC Challenge: sparkle
- Pile it On Challenge: spring

Update: I've been told I can enter this card to the current Just Magnolia Challenge, yey!! Thank you Mina :)

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.

I'd like to enter this card to the following challenges:
- Cupcake Craft: make your own flowers
- Roses on Paper: layers
- Quixotic Challenge: joys of spring
- Charisma Cardz: thank you
- Just Magnolia: punch it out
- Stampin' for the weekend: ribbons and bows ( 3 papers, 3 embellishments & 1 charm)

Before I leave, I want to share with you that Kellie has opened a new blog for her store called Tickled Pink Stamps, she is now shipping internationally so if you want to get your hands on some beautiful Magnolia stamps, head over to her blog, she's is offering a nice giveaway!

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

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 :)
