I'm back...!

It seems like ages and at the same time not, since the last time I did a post. We've been MIA from the blog, but otherwise busy with our craft. As Ivonne mentioned before, I went to Puerto Rico. We took classes, worked together, and most importantly: just had fun. Every time we get together, even over the phone, is guaranteed laughter...even when we are sad, because we pick each other up and then say something that will bring a smile or a good laugh.

I hope everyone that celebrates Thanksgiving had a great day. This year was a little different in my house. It was just us... The day before I asked my husband and two sons to write in a piece of paper 3 things they were thankful for in the year 2011. Before blessing the meal we proceeded to take turns and recite our lists. I just wanted to remember this year and our many blessings. We've had some difficult times, but we still know that we are blessed. And of course Ivonne was on my list. I am so thankful for her being in my life, for our kids getting to know each other better, for this blog a labour of love, designed and built by her; and for her being that sister sent from above.

I want to share the birthday card I made for my oldest son. He turned 27 at the end of October, omg! He loves music and rocks a spanish guitar big time. He is self-taught and I am soo proud of him!

This is the fron of the card:
A view of the guitar:

He also loves skulls. I colored the image with distress inks and stickles:

And a picture of the envelope I had to make because of the size of the card:

This card was created using DCWV Mariposa Collection paper, EK Jolee's Boutique Steampunk Music Flourish, Cuttlebug Script Folder, Hambly Scrapbooker's Sonata screen print acetate, distress inks and stickles.
