Angelic Joy

Hola Amigas...How are you? We had an AWESOME day yesterday! We went to Ocean Grove with Pedro, Ivonne and the girls...The little ones loved spending time together. Solimar and Ariana were fishes...They did not want to get out of the water...Joaquin just loves playing in the sand and Jaslin is a princess..She just chilled on her beach chair and once in awhile she would splash in the water or play in the sand...Then we went to Asbury Park for dinner at Pop's Garage. A Cuban restaurant that is SO DELICIOUS! Anyway...I started making sample Christmas cards and this is by FAR one of my favorites...It's simple yet elegant...You can't tell but the Angel is ALL Shimmery.

Today I am hosting a workshop and my friend Audrey will be doing a Dove Chocolate presentation. What can be better than pairing Stampin UP with CHOCOLATE. If you are in the area let me know so you can stop by and see some new Holiday Mini Sneak Peeks as well as The NEW Idea Book & Catalog. So what did you think of Kelly Mayou's artwork. I love how she colored the little girl from Greeting Card Kids...I have to get that stamp set. I can't believe this is the last blog hop for VC ROCKS! Well here is my artwork. Now please join me in seeing Shari Dudek's artwork. Hope everyone has an AMAZING DAY!

Hola Amigas! How is everyone? Yesterday hubby took off (DOESN'T HAPPEN OFTEN) and we took the little ones to the boardwalk. They love it...Solimar's fave game is skee ball and Joaquin likes it too but he prefers basketball...Then we were able to find a safe ice cream place (that actually has a machine just for allergy peeps)...Icing on the cake! Well today our challenge is brought to us by Carole'Anne. Do you see the color challene? She is having us pick an additional color. HMM!? I am going to have to check my Color Coach.
I am going to start with a Early Espresso's always a safe bet...we will see...
Okay so I am layering with a sheet of Candy Cane DSP which is in the NEW Holiday Mini. This particular sheet is Baja Breeze and then I want to add Poppy Parade as an accent.
Still building...and I am already over the time because I thought this would be easy but its not...I also decide last minute to try to use a sketch from Inkspirations 4U...not feeling it... and here is my card...WHICH I WILL REDO! Using these colors...I don't like it...but its cool...

SAH 131-3D Challenge by Sandi MacIver

Hola Amigas! This weeks challenge is brought to us by Sandi MacIver. She created a cute little box for us to make...Let's begin...I started with Elegant Eggplant and I cut two large scallop circles. Senor Asqueroso is ready for the countdown. Our 3D challenges have 30 minutes. I then cut a strip to make the wall of the circle box...I then scored the strip and added tabs for easy attachment...
I added adhesive (sticky strip or Tombow Adhesive work the best) to my tabs and added them to my scallop base. NOTE: Tombow Adhesive has latex in it so if your allergic don't use it or wear gloves (like I do).I then used the label punch to make a hinge. Punch it out and then score in half. You will attach one half to the outside of the circle and the other on the lid. Where is the time going?And then DECORATE. I originally wanted to do something with Oreos but changed my mind and made Solimar a Tooth Fairy box. She will start kindergarten in September and that means soon after the loss of baby teeth...I want to be prepared. This stamp is A La Carte.Tell it's not cute...I added our NEW rhinestones and a ribbon...LOVE IT! Come and see all my DT sisters. Head over to Carole'Anne's blog. AND for inquiring minds I went OVER by 33:57...

Paper: Elegant Eggplant, Melon Mambo, Whisper White
Ribbon: Melon Mambo (retired)
Stamp Set: Tooth Fairy
