Elegant Quinceañera Card Box

Happy Friday everyone I’m back and here’s a project that I was working on and want to share with you. I created this Elegant Quinceañera Card Box for my daughter’s party.
I covered the box with French Vanilla card stock from Bazzill and accented it throughout with 29th Street Market paper by My Mind’s Eye to make it look like old vintage torn wall paper. I inked all of the edges and corners with Brushed Corduroy and Peeled Paint Distress Ink by Ranger.
All of this I accented with some Prima Pearls and created Rose clusters with Iamroses roses and Prima roses and leaves. I personally hand crafted the stick pins and added a sparkling bead from The Bead Gallery. All in all I think this project turned out amazing and it captured the essence that I was looking for. I hope you enjoy it as well.

Things I’m grateful for this year

As many of you already know Christmas time is my favorite time of the year. This year I have many things to be grateful for.

I have My Mother and she is regaining her health I have my Father and he too is regaining his health. As a family we have lost some special members but I’m grateful because I was blessed enough time be part of their lives.

“BUT” most of all I am grateful for having my own healthy and happy family where unity always reigns so I leave you with this special prayer and hope that you feel the same during this special time of the year.

O Heavenly Father, our loving God, you have given us the Holy Family
as our patron to bless and guide our families that the fruit of the
Holy Spirit - love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness,
faithfulness, humility, and self-control - shall reign in our homes.

Merry Christmas to you all

A cute card for my niece

A Few Get Well Cards & Wall Hanging

Here are a few cards and a wall hanging that I created for my niece this past week. She has come a long way from being on life support to breathing on her own now. She gave us quite a scare this week and I am grateful that everything is looking better each day now. She is only twenty-one, and is the sweetest girl you could meet and if that wasn’t enough she has a lovely heart. Hopefully by Monday she will be able to leave ICU and I can spend more time with her. So in the meantime I ask for your prayers. Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend everyone.

My take on Mixed Media Faces

Hi everyone and thank you for stopping by. I am trying my hand at Mixed Media {Faces}. Don’t get me wrong I have been making Mixed Media Art for quite some time now. This is one of my first attempts to making faces. So I want to share it with you and get some feedback from you. Do you like it? Would you like to see more? My faces at this time are mostly inspired by some great and wonderful artist that I admire and respect. There work is just perfect in my opinion. One of them is Adriana Almanza, Margo Hay, and Suzi Suzibluetube to name a few.
