So make yourself comfortable and enjoy all the cards specially made for this event and for you!!

Esta es la tarjeta que hice para hoy:)

This is the card I made for today:)

Mientras pensaba en la tarjeta que haría para el día de hoy, me vino el pensamiento de que estaría representando a mi bella isla y que lo mejor sería hacer una que fuera representativa de su belleza. Así que la hice con flores pues ellas me recuerdan a nuestro hermoso bosque tropical… El Yunque. Le dedico esta entrada a mi isla, a mi gente que sufre con el resto del mundo los embates de una economía lastimada y la decadencia de muchos valores morales pero que aun así no ha perdido su gran capacidad de amar y sentir compasión por aquel que sufre.
Así que como diría Gilbertito…. CAMINALO!!....

When I was thinking about the card I wanted to make, I thought that since I am representing my beautiful Island of Puerto Rico I might as well make a card that had all the warmth and beauty of my Caribbean Paradise. So I made a card with flowers because they remind me of our great Rain Forest. I dedicate this post to my island…to my people, who are suffering with the rest of the world the effects of a weak economy and the devaluation of many moral values, but at the same time still have a great amount of love and compassion. The message in the card is a paragraph of a popular song that says “If I hadn’t been born in this island, I would have many regrets of not having been born here”. The song is all about the love for the country in which you were born, that song applies to each one of us and it has a rhythm that makes you want to start dancing right away. So this card is for my family, my friends, my people and for the rest of the world.

Moxie Fab World ;) Gradient is Radiant Challenge


Hace mucho tiempo no estaba por aquí. La vida ha estado un poco complicada y a la verdad es que se me ha hecho difícil sacar el tiempo para jugar con mis papeles. Les cuento que he estado teniendo mucho trabajo en la oficina lo cual sobre todo en estos días es una verdadera bendición y le doy gracias a Dios por eso. En mi apartamento estamos arreglando par de cositas, pintando, reorganizando...en fin haciendo mil cosas para que cuando lleguen las siempre esperadas navidades todo este bello y bien festivo como me gusta.

hoy es el cumpleaños número 40 de mi esposo Miguel. Como el es fanático de los carritos de control remoto, pues le preparé esta tarjeta la cual le encantó cuando la vio esta mañana. Para hacer la montaña de tierra utilicé el producto Petal Soft. Tengo varios colores y para ser honesta hasta el momento no los había usado. Me encantó el efecto y la dimensión que le da a los proyectos. Así que me parece que por ahí vendrán más colores. El stamp que utilicé es de Little Paper Shop. En esa tiendita he conseguido unos cuantos stamps masculinos que van de acuerdo a los gustos de mi esposo.

La semana pasada descubrí el blog de Moxie Fab World blog. WOW!! Esta súper nítido. En el mismo se postean varios retos y decidí tratarlo con la tarjeta de Miguel. Cuando comencé a pintar la imagen me di cuenta de que el usa mucho este estilo en varios tonos para pintar sus carritos, lo que hizo mas especial pues se parece a uno de los carritos que el ha pintado.

Como estamos calentando motores para la celebración del día mundial de la tarjetearía, esta semana estaré posteando varios proyectos. ¡Así que prepárense para una semana súper divertida!! Y éste próximo miércoles, Puerto Rico va a estar siendo presentado en este blog, así que no dejen de pasar por el para que apoyen a las chicas puertorriqueñas.


it’s been a while since my last post. Life has been a little complicated. I've been having a lot of work at the office which especially in these days is a blessing and I thank God for that. In addition we have been painting and remodeling a few things at home in order to be ready for the holidays. I LOVE CHRISTMAS!!

Today is my DH 40th birthday. Since he is a fan of remote control cars, I made him this card which he loved ;) To make the road I used Petal Soft. I have several colors of this product and to be honest had never used them until now. I loved the effect and the dimension that it gave to the card, so I think there will be more colors in the way. The stamp is from Little Paper Shop.

Last week I discovered the Moxie Fab World blog. I love it! And love the fact that she always have great challenges that gets us out of our comfort zone. Since my husband almost always uses gradient colors to paint his RC cars bodies, I decided that the image on this card was perfect for this challenge. I loved the results an so did he ;)

Well, now I will continue my work. Remember to stop by during the week because there are going to be a few surprises and blog candy next Saturday to celebrate the World Card Making Day.

Take care and have a nice day!
