Flaunt it Friday Challenge # 17

Es viernes, eso quiere decir que estamos listos para el fin de semana y para un nuevo reto en el blog de Flaunt It Fridays. Esta semana el reto es crear un proyecto con el cartucho 3 Birds on a Parade y el corte de la página 36. Si no tenés este cartucho, pues se vale usar cualquier pájaro de cualquier otro cartucho. Yo no lo tengo, pero en Straight from the Nest en la página 58 hay un pájaro muy similar, solo que no tiene el disfraz sino un sombrerito de fiesta. Así que esta es mi tarjeta para el Design Team de FIF de esta semana. Una tarjeta de cumpleaños.

It's Friday, that means that we are ready for the week end and for a new challenge at the Flaunt It Fridays Blog. This week the challenge is to make a project with the 3 Birds on a Parade cartridge cut on page 36. If you don't have that cartridge, you can use any bird from any other cartridge. I don't have it, but I found a similar cut on the Straight from the Nest, pag 58. The difenence is that this one it is not a Disguise Bird but it has a birthday hat. So here is my card for this week's FIF Design Team... A Birthday card.

Todos los globos fueron cortados del cartucho Create a Critter.
La base fue cortada en la función de sombra y unidos con la Gypsy.
Luego los globos fueron cortados con la en la función normal y la primer capa.

I am so Lucky blog hop

Christ shield me this day:
Christ with me,
Christ before me,
Christ behind me,
Christ in me,
Christ beneath me,
Christ above me,
Christ on my right,
Christ on my left,
Christ when I lie down,
Christ when I arise,
Christ in the heart of every person who thinks of me,
Christ in the eye that sees me,
Christ in the ear that hears me.
--From The Breastplate of Saint Patrick 

It is St. Patrick's Day and althoough I am not Irish, St. Patrick's day is one of the foringer festivities that I like to celebrate. I've always liked how this saint, helped by a simply clover, explained the Mistery of the Holy Trinity, and how him, show us to see the hand of God in the smallest things.

Spring card / Tarjeta de primavera

I enjoy a lot making cards or projects for different blog challenges, but what I really enjoy is when I challenge myself to meet diferent challenges at a time with only one project/card. This is the case of this card. That was a lot of fun to make it.

This is my enty for:
-Cooking with Cricut: Time to Spring Forward
-Fantabulous Cricut: Tree Time
-Cricut Cardz challenge: Tall card

It was a lot of fun to work on this card, I hope you enjoy it too!.

Día Internacional de la mujer - International women's day

Today, (March 8) is the International Women's day. I have never thought of myself as a feminist, and as a matter of fact I do think that men and women are different from each other’s although as human been, we are equal in dignity and rights. I believe that we shouldn't need a day to remind ourselves our rights, but it is nice to celebrate our femininity, that is why I wanted to create my own challenge for today and make a project that reflects femininity. Then, I thought that it will be nice to know what do you, my blogger friends, think about the International women's day? So, my challenge for you is to create a project about that!
Hoy (8 de marzo) se celebra el Día Internacional de la Mujer. Nunca me he considerado feminista, y
de hecho creo que hombres y mujeres somos distintos, aunque como seres humanos somos iguales en dignidad y derechos. Creo que si bien no deberíamos de necesitar un día al año que nos recuerde estos derechos, si es lindo celebrar nuestra feminidad, y por eso he querido hacer mi propio reto y elaborar un proyecto que refleje esa feminidad. Les reto también a elaborar un proyecto que refleje su pensamiento sobre el Día Internacional de la Mujer.

And here are my projects: 2 girly cards.
Y aquí están mis proyectos: 2 tarjetas muy femeninas

This is a Bridal Shower invite. It screams "Girls just want to have fun!"
Esta es una invitación para una despedida de soltera. Este diseño grita "¡Las chicas solo quieren divertirse!"

This is a "any ocasson card".
Esta es una tarjeta que puede servir para cualquier ocasión.

Dulces 16 / Sweet 16

Esta tarjetita la hice para la hija de una amiga, que está a punto de cumplir sus 16 años. Como ella vive en Estados Unidos, y allá esa es la edad en que los jóvenes obtienen su licencia de conducir, quise reflejar eso en la tarjeta. Los colores, son sus favoritos, azul, verde y amarillo. Quise mantener eso si, la feminidad en la tarjeta colocando flores y usando papeles que a mi parecer son bastante femeninos. Espero que a Julia le guste su tarjeta.

I made this card for a frind´s daugther who is about to have her 16th Birthday. The colors I used are her favorites (blue, green and yellow) I wanted to keep the card girly by adding many flowers on it and with the pattern papers which I think are very feminine. I hope Julia likes her card.

This card match the requirment for the Cooking with Cricut challenge for this week which is "Double take"... I used 2 pattern papers (blue and green), 2 pieces of solid cardstock (black, white, blue, and the light green), 2 embelishments (pearls, flowers, brads, I used 8!) and a cut from cricut (the zebra, the sweet word, number 16, the circle and scalop circle).

Thanks for being you

I made this card following the Die Cuttin Divas sketch.
Last week I received the Straight from the nest cartridge, so I used the bird cage from it and this card will be also my entry on the Bitten by the bug2 challenge.

Hogs and Kisses

This week's challenge at Jitterbuggin is to make a card with a pig on it, use at least 2 different patterned papers (YIKES) and add some buttons.
When I saw the challenge I inmediatly thought on the Country Life cartridge. To use pigs on a card wasn't the problem at all, but the hardest part for me was to use patterned papers because I usually work better with solids... but that is why this is called a challenge... So I went into my papers and I actually used 8 different patterned papers! (8 is more than 2 right? I wonder if I could I win extra credits for that?) Anyhow, I had lots of fun making this card and that is what counts at the end.
Thanks for looking and feel free to leave a comment... I love to read your thoughts!

Flaunt it Fridays Challenge: Twinkle Toes

Es viernes nuevamente y el reto de esta semana en Flaunt it Fridays es usar cualquier corte del cartucho Twinkle Toes... bien pues yo no tengo ese cartucho pero las imágenes que trae son lindísimas, todas relacionadas con danza, ballet y música. En fin, yo corté esta bailarina del Paper Dolls Dress Up y con ella hice esta colilla para la mochila de mi hija. Ella empezó sus clases de danza esta semana y pensé en hacerle algo especial para la ocasión.

Is Friday again and the challenge at Flaunt it Fridays for this week is to use any cut from Twinkle Toes... well, I don´t have that cartridge, but the cuts from it are so cute, all related with dance, ballet and music. Anyway, I cut my ballerina from Paper Dolls Dress Up and made this name tag for my daughter´s bag. This week she stated her dance lessons and I think on making her something special for the ocassion.
