Take Care Dear Friend.......

Hello dear friends: Once again I'm here keeping in touch with you via my blog.
My hope is that all of you are still doing well, taking care and being patient.
Sending love and hugs.

I have a card created with my most favorite mice stamps, I'll link it up to a few challenges, the idea came to me from the sketch and the battle about wearing masks.

This is Monica from House Mouse, I stamped her on a panel of Strathmore Bristol paper and colored her with Prismacolor pencils. Using a small piece of vellum, I traced her little face to create the mask, then I rubbed the outline on a scrap of pink pattern paper to transfer it to then, fussy cut it.
The little hearts are punched with a retired SU punch called "Pinking Hearts", the sentiment is stamped using a combination of sets from Power Poppy.
The words "take care" are from "Tea in the Garden", the "dear friend" words are from "Always Here"
Here's a close-up of the little mask on her face. 

This is the INSIDE of my card.

The sentiment is from a Power Poppy set called "Always Here"

I want to play along with the following challenges.

Mouse and Mask.

Thank you for visiting me today.
Stay healthy and safe.

Hello everyone: I have no words to say today about this grim milestone this Country has surpassed, all I'll say is that my heart breaks for each one of those families who have lost their beloveds.
God Bless you all.

I have a card today that, as I was coloring it and creating the little scene, transported me for a few hours to the sweet realm where Fairies live.

This sweet image is from a 49 and Market stamp set called Friends Forever, I just adore this little scene, I really think Never Land looked like this for Tinkerbell.
Stamped on Bristol Smooth Vellum surface paper with Stazon black ink, I colored with both SU re-inkers for the grass and trees and Prismacolor pencils for the mushrooms, Fairy and her little mouse friend.
I was struggling to find a place for a sentiment but I think it would have looked out of place, I'm letting the image speak for itself.

This is the INSID

The border is from a SU set called Grace's Garden, the mushroom is from the Fairy set and the sentiment is from an old Flourishes set called "Orichids", I love it and I always use it when I create a Fairy card.

I want to play with the following challenges.

I was totally inspired by Tinkerbell.

"Begins with M" Mushrooms.

Thank you for visiting.
Stay safe and healthy.

Another One For My Stash.......

Hello everyone: I hope all of you are doing well, hanging in there, being patient and strong for your families, friends and neighbors. 
I have one more Christmas card to add to my stash, this image was in my "unfinished" box, where I keep uncolored panels to do later, it came really handy to play along with a few challenges.

This image is from an old Flourishes set called "Naturally Merry" (11-2012), stamped with Stazon black ink and colored with a light wash of Stampin' Up! "Old Olive" refill ink and then, added shadows and details with my Prismacolor pencils, the berries are done with a SU "Real Red" marker.
The sentiment is from a Powe Poppy set called Simple Joys, which happens to be on sale right now.
This is the INSIDE of my card.

The sentiment is from a Power Poppy set called Glistening Paperwhites which is also on sale. The little gift is from another Power Poppy set called Merry Littles, I often use this set to decorate the inside of my Christmas cards.

I want to play along with these challenges.

Thank you for stopping by.
Stay healthy and safe.

Sticking Together.......

Shopping Our Stash Weekly Challenge Blog

With every post, I keep wishing and hoping you and your families are healthy and safe, I keep telling my grandchildren that we must be patient and don't rush into anything, this virus doesn't discriminate, so caution is of the utmost importance, listening to the experts and scientists who are working diligently to find a solution for all of us.
God Bless every single person who is working on the front lines, from hospitals and clinics to grocery stores and everything in between.

Hello everyone: It's time for another SHOPPING OUR STASH challenge for you to play with, this time we want to see STICKERS on your cards, we can't wait to see what you come up with.
I must confess that it's been a good 4 years since I've used stickers on a card, I went back to see when I created a card with stickers and I found THIS CARD from 2016. I do have a few stickers I bought a long time ago but I just don't use them, I think I buy them because they are either super cute or really beautiful.
So I found this small stash of stickers on a small drawer by my desk, honestly, I haven't opened it in a long while.
But here's my card, hope it inspires you to come and play along.


Everything on this card is from my stash, the adorable puppy sticker, musical notes, gift, and sticker tag where the sentiment is stamped.

This is the INSIDE of my card.

This is what I used.

There She Goes "Wrapped in Joy" (I think it's discontinued)
Memory Box "Party Music" (maybe discontinued also)
Prismacolor pencils to color the gift boxes.

I hope you stop by the SHOPPING OUR STASH challenge blog and get more inspiration from my awesome teammates.

Thank you for visiting me today.
Stay healthy and safe.
