Early Christmas Card

Hi there!

Some time ago, I fell in love with the Sugar Nellie fairy stamps, and spend hours and more hours thinking which ones will I buy. But I had made a deal with myself in which I would not buy any stamps that I was not going to colour right away. And life got busy and busier, and I never bought them.

A few days ago, I happened to think about them, and with the new fashion of facebook fan clubs, decided to look for them, only to find out that they were having a DT call on their Challenge Blog, The Sugar Bowl!! So there I went, bought some stamps and started to colouring. And it was such a pleasure... I wonder how could I have stayed without them for so long!

And this is my entry for their DT call.
Wish me luck!

In this card: Sugar Nellie's digital stamp, On the wings of love, patterned papers from My Mind's Eye, Joyous collection, sentiment stamp from BoBunny, plain red and white card, cream tag, backer's twin, bling,  button, a snowflake that I received on a swap, white tread, embossing powders, liquid appliqué, liquid pearls and stickles.

Zuri Artsy Craftsy DT Call

Hi there!

Do you remember the super cute ATC's that I showed you a few weeks ago? Well, I just found out that the artist that makes these stamps, Zuri Vice Presindent Jr., has opened a brand new challenge blog and is looking for a Design Team to showcase her stamps.

And I couldn't prevent myself to try my luck! I think I would be happy colouring her designs all day long!

Wish me luck!

First Day of School

Hi there!

My little baby flower is starting nursery school next Monday (oh my... I'm going to miss her so much... :( )... and I've decorated a bag for her, which is going to stay at school, and will be the place to store spare clothes and other utilities for her to use in case of need. Looking at it finished now, I think I would have liked different colours for the stamp, but bearing in mind that she wants everything to be pink or purple, I think she will be happy with this.

Hope you like it

In this bag: Digital stamp from MilkCoffee coloured with Copic markers, 
cotton fabric and crocheted flower.

The markers I used: 
E000, E00, E11, E21, E50, E53, E55, E57

Elephant T-shirt

Hi there!

Today I wanted to show you a t-shirt that I did for my sweet boy. I like to make t-shirts for him every summer, but he is already turning 5 and boys are never that easy when it comes to designs. So, this year I had this idea. I asked him to draw something that he would like to wear on a t-shirt and this is what he came with.

Hope you like this

Sewing Can (Altered Can II)

Hi there!

Although I'm supposed to be on Holiday, I'm going through a period of whimsical creative mood. I've got plenty of started cards, coloured images and not paper projects taking all the space of my desk. 

Last weekend I took home the altered can with sewing theme, that I showed you here, to decorate the lid, because I rushed it on to the challenge blog, without having had the time to do it. And this morning the inspiration came to me. 

Hope you like what I've done with it :)

In this work: Digital Stamp from The Paper Shelter (digitally pre-coloured image), die-cut shapes, liquid pearls, lace and ric-rac trims, crochet flowers, flat back pearls, plain buttons and fantasy buttons, fabric and paper flower.

Happy Birthday Grandma

Hi there!

Tomorrow is my Grandma's birthday and I wanted to show you the card that I made for her. It seems like ages since the last time that I made a card without a digital stamp on it. I had actually coloured one for using on it but when I finished the background I decided that I liked it to much to cover it.

Hope you like it too :)


Demà és l'aniversari de la meua avia i volia ensenyar-te la targeta que li he fet. Pareix que fa un segle que no he fet una targeta sense un segell digital. En realitat en tenia un coloretjat per a utilitzar-lo en esta però quan he acabat el fons, he decidit que m'agradava massa per a tapar-lo. 

Espere que t'agrade també :)

In this card: Paper scraps from MME's Lost & Found, Liquid Pearls, resin appliqué corner, lace and pearls trim, paper flowers and leaves, also resin and leather flowers (the small white ones are recycled from a top that my little used last summer), frantaged die cut butterfly, candy shoppe bubbles. Ribbon flower and crochet sentiment crafted by myself.
