WOW!! Today my friend Yani surprised me with the notice that she featured the card I made yesterday in a blog named Inspirational Craft Blog in which she is part of the inspirational team. Thanks Yani!!!
Hoy me tomé el día por vacaciones para resolver par de asuntitos personales. Como llegué temprano a casa, me dió con hacerle una tarjetita a Miguel, para las que no lo saben, ese es el nombre de mi esposo. Bueno, la cosa es que en estos pasados meses Miguel ha estado trabajando arduamente incluyendo los fines de semana para poder ponernos al día en lo económico. Ya ustedes saben que la economía no está en sus mejores días y nosotros al igual que muchas personas hemos sentido el embate de la misma. Sin embargo no me puedo quejar pues Dios siempre ha provisto lo necesario y un poco más para que podamos disfrutar de los que nos gusta en una forma moderada.
Así que como me gustó tanto el sketch del challenge de Beate, decidí hacerle una tarjetita en el mismo formato para darle las gracias por su esfuezo y dejarle saber mi agradecimiento. Espero que les guste.
Today I took the day off at work to run some errands we had pending. Since I arrived early at home, I decided to make a card for Miguel, my hubbie. He has been working very hard including the weekends for the last months trying to catch up in the economical aspect of our lives. We all know that the economy is not at is best right now, and we had our share of it. Still, I am grateful to God because He always has provided us the necessary and a little more to enjoy what we love to do. The card was made to show my appreciation for his effort and to let him know that I am grateful for his sacrifice and what he is doing for us.
Since I liked so much Beate's sketch for this weekend challenge, I decided to use it for the card. I hope you like it!!!

I made today this card for Beate's Weekend Challenge. I like this challenge because is a great way to build a card bank and that way always have a card at hand when needed. I intend to participate in this challenge from now on and therefore never be caught without a card when I need it.
I am excited because also is the first card I made using the SU products from my Demo Kit. I joined the SU Family about two weeks ago and was waiting for the products to arrive. I like a lot this line, the stamps are very pretty and they have tons of great embellishments. Also, the cardstock is great for card making.

One of the reasons I didn't wrote for an entire week is that I was working on my version of the Carousel Notes Purse Project that Patty published on her blog. I fell in love with this project the moment I saw it, and since I didn't had the Carousel Notes from SU! I made my own envelopes with the help of my Cricut (of course!!!). Thanks Patty for sharing this great project!! I had lots of fun stamping and sewing. Now I have to find the perfect photos and display it in my home. I still have not finished the front because I don't have the magnets. I already ordered them to Scrappers Place so it's only a matter of days before my Bag is finished and on display ;))

A- Enlazar a la persona que me "señaló", presione Jay
B. Compartir 7 cosas/hechos sobre mí.
1- Estudié por tres años diseño de modas en la academia de Carlota Alfaro y me cosí casi toda mi ropa durante más de 15 años.
2- De niña detestaba la escuela y siempre tenía malas notas. De más está decir los castigos que llevé.
3- Pertenecí a un grupo de música y drama en la iglesia. Haciamos musicales cristianos para jóvenes y a la vez socializaba con gente de mi edad en un ambiente sano.
4- Estudié contabilidad por error (shhhhh!!! no se lo digan a nadie).....
5- Me encantan los gatos...opps!! Creo que eso lo sabían....
6 - Nunca he visto la nieve y no me aguanto las ganas de hacerlo. Creo que me voy a poner bien ridícula cuando al fin esté en medio de una nevada.
7 - Soy un poco sarcástica...un razgo heredado de mi padre que en los momentos indicados me sirve de tremenda arma de defensa y en los no indicados me mete en cada liiiiioooooo!!!!!!!
3. "Taggea" o "Señala" a 7 personas e incluye sus direcciones de blog.
Esta está dificil porque casi no conozco a nadie con blogs y a las que conozco ya fueron taguedas. Así que yo tiro al medio a las que lean esto y aun no han sido taguedas. Vamos...quiero detalles!!!
I now have to nominate five more blogs that make my day for the award. This has not been an easy task, but here are my nominees:

I made this card for a Challenge my friend Marirose sent to SB Friends. You can see the challenge in here. I liked it a lot, because the envy has two pockets in which you can place a card and a tag as I did in mine.

My mom asked me to make her a card for two friends who helped her with my brother's wedding. Each time a member of my family needs a card they just call me and asked for a personalized card. This is great for them and for me too because it gives me hours of fun just surfing through the internet and magazines searching for ideas to create a great card.
En esta usé el mini set Chai Latte de Inque Boutique. Tambien usé el set Alpha Chic de Fancy Pants. El papel es de American Craft "Pumpernickel" de la colección A La Carte. Todas estas chulerías se las compré a mi amiguita Rebeca de Scrapper's Place.
Bueno, ahora a termninar de lavar ropa y preparar mis cosas para una nueva semana llena de trabajo. La parte emocionante son las horas felices aqui en mi cuartito una vez llego por las tardes de trabajar. Hasta luego!!!
For this one I used the Chai Latte mini set from Inque Boutique. Also the Alpha Chic acrylic stamp set from Fancy Pants. The paper is Pumpernickel from American Craft A la Carte Collection. I bought all this nice stuff from my friend Rebeca at Scrapper's Place.
Well, now is time to finish the laundry and all the preparations for a new week full of work. The best part is the after work happy hours here at my SB room. See you soon!!!!
My internet was down for two weeks so you can imagine I was desperate to get if fixed so I could see all the wonderful things you are doing. At last I will be able to visit all of you leaving my comments. I like to thank you for all the comments you left on my blog. Each one of it is very important for me and reassures me that this hobby is about family and friendship.
My sister asked me to do a card for her frien'd baby shower. Here is the card I made for her. I used the Cricut and the Design Studio and combined images from A walk in my Garden, New Arrival and George. I used Bazzil for the cream base and DCWV for the rest. Hope you like it.
