Right Before the Blog Hop Busy-ness...

Hola Amigas,
I wanted to quickly share a project I completed right before all the "busy"ness began!  I joined an ATC swap over at the "Little Scrap of Heaven" site.  It was hosted by my friend, Stephanie, and the theme was Autumn.  Here are some pics:

I used K&Co. "Tuscany Sunflowers" by Tim Coffey.
My absolute favorite of all of his collections.

I made a matching mini-box for Stephanie... a little token
of appreciation for hosting the swap.

Here's the vid...

Thanks for visiting!  I hope you'll become a follower, and hope
you'll visit often!  Your kind words have been a blessed treat!

"Suspirando Con Tinta"

Hello my friends...
Abby strikes again, this time I've used stamps from here
new stamp collection called:

"Suspirando Con Tinta" 

The first card "Besos & Abrazos" means "Hugs & Kisses,"
and I think it might just be my favorite!
It's adorable, don't you think?!

The second card, "Tu y Yo" means "You and I" and
it reminds me of my older sister.  Back in her teenage years,
that saying was super popular, and she had tons of it.
On her earrings, tee-shirts, and posters on her wall!
LOL!  Things always come back around don't they, and I
think it was super clever of Abby to bring it back!

Thank you ALL for all the bloggy LOVE!!!
Don't forget to leave those comments for chances to win Abby's stamp sets!!
Hope you come back soon, they'll be more of Abby's treats!!!
Smooches (Besos!!!)

Tickled Pink Stamps Challenge #36

Hola Amigos!
Hope you all are having an awesome weekend!  I have a quick share for you today... I actually started this card last week for TPS Challenge #35, but I missed the deadline!!!  Crazy, right?  I was just a busy little bee this week, since it was the first week back to school for the students.  By the time the kiddies go home, I am exhausted, and by the time I get home... well, let's just say I'm basically useless!  Luckily, all I had to do was add a lil' chipboard to make it eligible for this week's challenge!  So here it is...

The paper is from the "Mischievous" Collection 
by My Mind's Eye:

I love the touch of blue in this adorable collection!
