Welcome to Puerto Rico and the World Card Making Day Countdown Blog Hop hosted by the Moxie Fab World. And while we wait for this great event next Saturday, October 3, Moxie Fab has prepared a great tour around the world where you can find great artists as well as have the chance to win some great prizes. 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.
Enjoy!!
