Hi everyone!!

I'm very glad to be able to play this month on the Paper Trey Blog Hop.  Usually it takes place during weekdays when I am working.  Today challenge is all about yellow and shades of aqua.  I looove the inspirational pic, it made me want to eat lemon candies.... or at least have a cup of lemon tea ;)

Here is the inspirational pic:

For the card I tried also this week Make it Monday Technique - Graduated Backgrounds.  I love this technique and found it excellent to combine today's color pallet. 

To achieve the color on the leaves, I used last week Make It Monday Technique and stamped the leaves in green and then using the Bitty Background Blocks I color kissed the leaves in blue.   The kissed image is very subtle but is there, and I love how it turned out.  I also used the same technique to make the flower.   

Here is a full picture of the card:

Thanks for your visit and for leaving some love!!

Parece mentira que ya prácticamente se ha ido el primer trimestre del año 2012!!  El mes de febrero tuvo sus retos los cuales gracias a Dios podemos decir que han sido superados.  

Al fin estoy volviendo a mi “normalidad creativa” y una de las cosas que decidí iba a tratar primero es preparar  la  versión casera del limpiador para los sellos.  Esta receta no es mía, la encontré en el blog de Lilypad pero decidí compartirla en español ya que definitivamente me encanta encontrar cosas que nos permitan ahorrar dinero que bien podemos utilizar en comprar más materiales para crear.

Aquí la receta:

2 cucharadas de Glicerina
1 Cucharada de shampoo para bebé
Agua destilada (en realidad usé agua filtrada pero la receta original es con destilada)
1 botella con rociador de 8oz

Mezclar los primeros dos ingredientes en la botella y añadir 8oz de agua.

Yo compré un pote de 16 oz por $2.95.  Para que tengan una idea, eso es el equivalente a 16.5 botellas de limpiador preparado.  El pote de shampoo lo pueden conseguir de cualquier marca.  Yo compré un pote grande de marca porque es lo que había donde fui, pero en realidad cualquier marca funciona.  El pote me costó $4.59 y da para las 16.5 botellas y sobra en cantidad.  O sea, que tomando el costo de ambos artículos y diviéndolo por el total de botellas tenemos que el limpiador sale en un total de .46 centavos por 8 oz de limpiador.  Para mi ESO ES AHORRO!!!  Tomando en consideración que 4 oz de limpiador pueden costar desde 2.99 ya con el primer pote de limpiador básicamente recuperas el costo.

Hoy he limpiado los stamps que tenia en uso y en verdad el liquido nbo tiene que envidiar nada a los que he usado en el pasado. 

Buenas tardes!!!!

It's been a while since my last post.  February was a very difficult month for my family and me, but thanks God everything turned out right and we are getting back to our normal routines.  That means crafty time for me yeahhh!!!!!

Have you noticed how fast time is running?  Is spring already arriving? That's great because it is the season where color is coming back into our world. The flowers are blooming, the spring fashion line up has many bold colors going, and it's high time to celebrate 
Your Favorite Color. Anything counts here, so we expect lots of entries :)

For this week we have three sponsors:

Winner's Choice of 3 Digis

$10 gift certificate

And now Let's see what I made for this week challenge:

Since it was an entire month of no crafty time I made two cards for this week challenge.  For the first one I used an image from Karen's Doodles  - Bigsby Loves to Paint.  This image goes great with my favorite colors!!  I don't know if you have noticed, but I looove bright and cheerful colors.

For my second card I used a background stamp from PTI and the sentiment is from Paper Smooches.  I like the challenge of making my own patterned paper and think this one turned out great!!

Here are my two cards in all their splendor:

I hope you have a great day and see you at the DYSU challenge blog!!!
