Work in progress...

Hello everyone!! I'm sorry it has been a while since I last posted. As I mentioned in a previous post I got engaged and well you know how it is when you are planning a wedding! The planning pretty much consumed all my time so I had to stop writing this blog and having my crafty adventures, then after the wedding I just couldn't get myself back to crafting since my mojo was nowhere to be seen and I just got busy doing other things. Hubby even told me I should get rid of all the crafty things I have collected since he said I wasn't using them anymore, I couldn't bear the idea of giving them away or sell since it's kinda hard to get or buy scrapbook stuff in Mexico... so I just packed them away. Also it didn't help that last year we were moving to different cities and pretty much traveled a lot :)
So I hope that finally this year I can get back to resume my crafty adventures and let the creative juices flowing. That's why I decided to change my blog as a way to restart!

Enough with the rambling! Today I have a Clean and Simple Valentine's card to share with you. I made this card for my dad, so he could give it to my mom ☆彡

It is a very simple card since I don't have all my scrapbook tools with me yet, I just have a few papers, scissors and glue.

I hope you enjoyed valentine's day with your special someone, family and friends.

I entered this card on the following challenges:

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
- The Secret Crafter Saturday: 3 embellishments, 2 papers and 1 image
- By the cute and girly: celebrations

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!

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

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 :)
