My hardest cards to make

Hello my friends,
Do you have a type of card that is just hard for you to make? Well, I do!! Baby cards...gee! The one card that I need the most in this season of life. Do you have any idea how many of my friends were pregnant this year...lol! Yeap..confession time. Baby cards are the hardest to make but tx God I got some awesome inspiration to make one simple card today. See! I only needed a little help..yeah sure!

Hola amigas,
Tienes alguna tarjeta en particular que se te hace super dificil hacer? Bueno, yo si!! Tarjetas para bebes. Chispas! El tipo de tarjetas que mas necesito durante esta etapa de mi vida. Tienes ideas cuantas de mis amigas han estado embarazadas este a~o? Se me hacen super duras de hacer...solo necesitaba un chin de inspiracion...si claro, un poquito!

 
This idea started slooowly and took place on my brain this week seeing several challenges that inspired me. First I chose this image, my little lion from the retired set "Fox and Friends", so cute. Then, I knew I wanted to experiment with washi tape. The Gray one is from the This and That line and the yellow is a sneak peek from the New Catalog launching May 31st.
Can you see where I got the ideas?
Esta idea comenzo lentooo y tomo lugar en mi mente despues de ver varios retos que me inspiraron. Primero escogi la imagen del leoncito, parte del set de sellos "Fox and Friends" que ya se retiro. Que lindo! Luego, queria experimentar con 'washi tape'. El gris es de la linea "Esto y Aquello" y el amarillo es un adelante del Nuevo Catalogo que sale en Mayo 31.
Puede ver de donde sque las ideitas?
Love the colors of this card..soft and babyish...also the combination of dots embossed and washi tape...just lovely. This was the inspiration from The Muse Card Challenge #15. You can see and even vote for your favorites HERE! Thanks for the inspiration ladies!
Me encantan los colores de esta tarjeta...suave y de bebecito...tambien la combinacion de circulitos en repujado y el 'washi tape'...precioso. Esta fue la inspiracion de 'The Muse Challenge #15'. Puede ver mas y aun votar por sus favoritos AQUI! Gracias por la inspiracion senoras!
 
This also inspired me and gave me some direction indeed. I've been looking at this sketch for a week now and sooo glad I was able to come up with a BABY CARD!! Whohoo!
Este esquema abajo tambien me inspiro y dio direccion definitivamente. He estado mirando este esquema toda la semana y tan feliz que logre hacer una tarjetita de BEBE!! Bravoo!
 
Go check the wonderful cards made with this sketch at HandStampSentiments. This is the sketch challenge #158 Love it! It helped me to keep it simple.
Vaya y vea las maravillosas tarjetas hechas con este esquema a Hand Stamped Sentiments. Este es el esquema #158 Me encanta! Me ayudo a mantener todo simple.

 
Last but not least I included my card in The Pink Elephant Challenge. This site has so much inspiration! And this week the challenge is to use WASHI TAPE on your projects.
Por ultimo inclui esta tarjetita en el reto del Elefante Rosado. Este lugar de web tiene tanta inspiracion! Y esta semana el reto era usar washi tape.
 
Our challenge this week is:
 
"Washi Tape"

Washi Tape...aka Decorative tape are a super popular trend right now. They are not only available in all types of colors & patterns...but they are even available in digital form. This week we challenge you to use some type of decorative tape on your projects.

Materials/Materiales:
Fox & Friends (retired/retirado)
Whisper White, Pool Party, Basic Gray, Daffodil Delight


I heard this expression this week by a speaker I admire:
"Never apologize for who God called you to be".
Wao! What a freeing message...be who He called you to be without condemnation, without remorse, without doubt. He made you to be great! Be great this day!

Escuche una expresion liberadora por medio de un pastor que admiro:
"Nunca se disculpe por ser quien Dios le llamo a ser"
Wo! Que mesnaje mas liberador...se quien El te llamo a ser sin condenacion, sin remordimiento, sin dudas. El te hizo para ser grande! Se grande el dia de hoy!
 
 
 
Creative Blessings I sent your way!
Le envio bendiciones creativas!

  1. What an adorable, ADORABLE baby card, sooo cute! Your inspiration piece is perfect and your "translation" of it is wonderful! YOU are so inspiring. I find baby, wedding and masc. to be the hardest cards to make (although wedding might be getting easier; some dry embossing, ribbon and one central image). Thank you for sharing, I am wowed by you constant creativity and love it all! Hugs!!
