A Spoon Full of Sugar. Week# 14

Hi again!
Another great week for the wonderful challenge " A Spoon Full of Sugar". This time you have to make a card using 3 different ribbons. Remember that now it's open to any stamp. I believe this is great because it allows you to use your favorite stamps, or just those you never used before...(this happened to me with this stamp, I love it, but never used it 'til now) . I utilized three different ribbons, two of t
hem used twice. Hope you like it.

Hola de nuevo!
Hoy empieza otra semana del maravilloso blog de concurso "A Spoon Full of Sugar". En esta ocasion, lo unico que tienen que hacer para participar es una tarjeta usando 3 diferentes cintas. Recuerden que desde ahora pueden utilizar cualquier sello de su preferencia. Aquellos que mas le gusten o aquellos que han comprado y no han tenido la oportunidad de usar (eso me paso a mi con este sello, jamas lo habia usado hasta hoy). En mi tarjeta utilice 3 diferentes cintas aunque dos de ellas las use dos veces. Espero les guste.

Today I have a second card to show you :))
I'm so in love with this paper from Urban Window Collection but I just bought 2 pieces (shame on me! Now I will have to go back to Michael's to buy more, I know hahahaha). Well, with 2 pieces of paper 12x12 I made the four Christmas cards you can see in one of my previous posts, plus the two ones I am showing here. I employed each inch of the paper to the max. :)) I LOVE the color combination of orange, green, blue and brown.
I made this card for one of my ex-coworkers and really good friend. I know she loves orange and green so I think it is perfect for her. The gift and ribbon at the girl head comes as 3D. Hope everybody is having a good time irrespective of where you are.
Big Hugs,


Hoy tengo una segunda postal que mostrarles. Me ha encantado este papel de la compañia Urban Window Collection, lastima que solo compre dos hojas y ahora tendre que regresar a Michael's para comprar mas :)
Aun asi, de estas dos hojas he podido hacer 4 postales de Navidad, las cuales pueden ver en otra de mis entradas debajo, y estas dos tarjetas que estoy mostrando hoy. He utilizado cada centimetro o pulgada de el :)) Me encanta la combinacion de colores como son el chocolate, naranja, azul y verde.
Esta tarjeta la hice para una ex-compañera de trabajo pero que ademas es una muy buena amiga. A ella le encantan las tonalidades naranjas y verdes asi que creo que sera perfecta para ella. El regalo de la niña en el sello y la cinta de su cabeza estan en tercera dimesion. Espero que todas esten disfrutando mucho en cualquier parte del mundo donde se encuentren.
Muchos saludos y abrazos,

Sweetheart, I was sure that I'd commented on your cards, but I can see now that I haven't!! Sorry, I have been visiting and checking them out several times! :) They are so cute, and I love the colors. You really have to show me the use of stickles when we come to Miami - maybe I will be as hooked as you?! ;P

Love you my friend, have a nice weekend with mum and O! :)

Will write you later, but first : fold some clothes and make cards! ;)
