Un Regalo Para Ti (A Gift for You)

I am so grateful that Stampin' Up! carries a Spanish line because I can send my parents cards to let them know that I am thinking of them.  Like the English version of Teeny Tiny Wishes it's also my "go to" set for any occasion.

I haven't posted in quite a few days, not because I was preparing to get home, but because I pulled a muscle in my lower back.  So, I haven't been too mobile and the pain is not joke.  But I was able to get up and walk around today.  I won't stress myself because I will be homebound in less than a week!  Yippee….

The sentiment translates to "A gift for you."  The butterfly is from the Backyard Basics stamp set and it coordinates with the Backyard Basics Framelits Dies.

Feliz Dia de las Brujas


In my culture we do not celebrate Halloween.  There's no such thing as going house to house to collect sweet treats. But what we do have is El Dia De Los Muertos (Day of the Dead).  It's a day were we celebrate the lives of our loved one's who have passed on.

So, on October 31st, we celebrate with our loved one's, friends, and neighborhoods as we come together, pray, and simply eat.  Now, that's what I love… eating!  LoL… It's like a pot luck in honor of those that enriched our lives and live in our hearts forever.

Card Sketches

Today's sketch is brought to you buy Pals Paper Arts #176 sketch challenge.


The sentiment is literally translated to read Day of the Witches… LoL.  I don't know why Halloween was named that, but that's what I grew up calling it… kind of funny I think.  Blog-Signature

Ladies & gentlemen, boys & girls… it's all downhill from here… the rest of the cards you will see were made two weeks ahead of time.  Why?  Because I had to ship 99.5% of my supplies home to the homeland sort of speak… LOL.  Yes, I'm having bad withdraw, but I left out a couple Paper Pumpkin kits and I've been working on them one card at a time.  Talk about milking the cow… LOL.  When those are complete I have bought some My Digital Studio dgital stamps, paper, and embellishment and I'll be showing you my card designs.  So, stay tuned because I'm getting really excited about it now.  So, I will not suffer from serious withdraw… I will design my heart away while I wait to be reunited with my paper… =)  Stay tuned on my progress… Yippee Skippy! 

Te Estraño (I Miss You) Blossom Branch in Morning Meadow

Morning Meadow Te Extrano1

Te Estraño translates to I Miss You.  I have sent various versions of this card many times in the last five months.  I may not make bundles of the same card, but I certainly use the same sentiments over and over again.  Why?  Because the Deseos Pequeñitos along with the English version (Teeny Tiny Wishes) come with every occasion stamp you will ever need.

I originally made this card for another sketch challenge, but I was so busy doing a different card that I passed the deadline.  Anyhow, the card is for a distant relative in Mexico.  My mom shared with her the Mother's Day card I made her and she asked if I could make a card for her.  This is it. =)

In case you didn't know, Stampin' Up! also has a Spanish line and I have some of them.  Click here to look at all the Spanish cards I have made.

A Spanish Thanksgiving with Mojo Monday

Fall.  A time to post and show all the different colors of coordinating card stock that go beautifully with the designer series paper.  It’s my favorite time of year because of all deep rich colors that come with the crisp air with the coming of Winter.  I grew up in sunny Southern California, but my favorite time of year is Fall and Winter.  I must’ve been a native of Alaska in a previous life… LoL.

As most of you know, I truly enjoy participating in card sketch challenges because it allows me to grow my imagination and a chance to win a blog badge.  It’s a stampers prized possession… LoL.  This card was made for the Mojo Monday 266 challeng.  Let me know what you think of it by leaving a comment.

To create my lovely Fall card I used the Spanish Teeny Tiny Wishes, punched out a 1″ circle to compliment the 1 3/4 scallop circle, and added a the little flower stamp from the Tiny Tags stamp collection.  The Orchard Harvest designer series paper is perfect for making Fall cards.  I know you will love it as much as I did.
