Sweet Sassy Diva~~Birthday Party

Hello My Sweet friends!! I have been absent from my Sweet Sassy Diva team for a little while, but I am back!! this week the theme is birthdays!! With that in mind, I wanted to do a different LO, one that was for a member of the family that does not get too much of my crafty attention! Sasha, my chocolate lab, just turned 4 this past December and I created a LO for her Bday!

I used leftover paper I had printed from my Friducha before deciding to return her.

The cute puppy face is all done by hand!! I have a tutorial on how to do it on another post.

Click on the picture to go to that post for tutorial!

Thanks for taking a peek!

Creepy Funny cards for Peachy Keen Challenge!

Ok.... before I even post anything about these cards... let me say that my intentions were good!! LOL really!! I had something really cool in mind and when I started cutting... well.... you will see.

I have officially created my first set of weird/creepy funny cards!!! They were intended to be cool and sexy cards but... as you will see this did not happen!! LOL

I do have to say that I am VERY excited about this new stack from DCWV "Inmortal Love"!!! If you are a Twilight fan, this is the stack for you!!!!!!!!! 

This cards were made for the Peachy Keen Tuesday challenge, this time around there is a sketch to follow.

So without further ado, here are my funny creepy cards!!

If you are a true Twilight fan, it will probably will not matter that it looks like I have chopped their heads off (creepy part) and it will probably will not matter that it looks like they are pretty flower heads (funny part)! You are most likely fixated on their faces and have not noticed ANYTHING else on these cards.

I do not like how they came out, but I just had to have you guys laugh a little!!!

Have fun creating for the Peachy Keen Challenge!!!

PS faces and sentiments came from a Hallmark card!

SEI Challenge with Abby #1

Hello my dear followers and viewers! It is time for a new challenge! and with the new year come new things and some changes to the formal Gaby Abby Challenges with SEI. Due to schedule conflicts and newly acquired commitments Gaby will no longer be able to play with me on these challenges. She has become a designer for a few teams and I wish her the best on those new teams. Don't forget to go visit her to see her new adventures!! Gaby Creates

With that said, I want to also let you know that SEI sent things for 4 giveaways. I have changed the format of the challenges. Challenges will be every other week with one price per month. You can participate both weeks and will be entered for the drawing twice. The challenge dates for this month are:

January 10th and January 24th

So, without further ado, the theme for this week is:

LAUGHTER/SMILE anything with a smile or 
even a phrase that contains the words

This time around SEI sent me the beautiful collection "with all my heart". Like with all their other collections this one is also very elegant!!! It has glittered, pearl foiled and embossed papers!!! Click on the link to see the detail of each paper the collection has.

I created again a NON-Cricut layout. I love doing this because it lets me play more with the paper and embellishments. I can truly showcase the beauty of the collection!
I am a designer for Sassy Lil Sketches and I used their first sketch of the year!! If you decide to use this sketch also, you can enter both challenges!! 
Follow the link for the sketch!

What I used:
Border punches and twine
Stamp sentiment from Joanns

All the embellishments come in the assortment pack!!! How cool is that?!!?

And I want to thank Sandra from 365 Days Of Cricut for creating a card for this challenge!!! She will be joining me for some (or maybe all ;)) of the challenges!!

I LOVE it!!!!! I know all you Cricut LOVERS will love this too!!!!!!!

We have a Design Team Call!!

Music Monday Challenge with Erin and Angelica

Hello everyone!!! Erin and Angelica have started their own challenge TODAY!!! and I love their idea!!! They will each take turns and choose a song to be inspired by! 

This week Erin choose the song You Are the Best Thing by Ray Lamontagne. I had NEVER EVER heard of this song before!! I LOVE IT!! It is a beautiful song!! Anyways, we have to create a project devoted to someone who is the best thing in our life. Someone that makes us smile, laugh and just down right happy!! We can interpret the song by lyrics, the voice, the rhythm, whatever moves us!

I thought... I am always making things for the people I love! and I thought about someone that I haven't told lately..... only one member of my family came to my mind.... Sasha! My chocolate lab. She turned 4 years this past December and I have been so consumed with my family and scrapbooking that I haven't hugged her lately and told her how much I LOVE HER!!!!

So, here is a card I made with her in mind... She is one of the best things in our lives, she makes me smile all the time!!

I made a quick (LOL) video to show you how to make this cute puppy face!!!


Thank You for taking a peek!!!
