Canary Love

Good evening, everyone! I am so glad the weekend is almost here. I've had this heart box finished except for the glitter line for a few days and was not able to do it and take the pictures to be able to do this post. But I finally did it! I saw this box at the dollar section of Target and thought that it might come in handy for a project. Later on, I found these beautiful papers (aren't all papers awesome?) and had to buy them because I love these kind of birds. Somehow the project came to be easy, and that's a first for me. Here are the pictures, I hope you enjoy them!

For a very special friend

Hello everyone! Happy Tuesday! Today, I am sharing with you a card I made for our friend Edgardo.  I wanted to thank him for being such a special friend and for always being there for us. He is the kind of friend, that is always available when you call him, that make you laugh until you cry and that never says no. These past weeks he took me to the doctor's office twice and he even baked this gorgeous cake for my niece's baby shower.  It was not only beautiful, but also delicious!!

I wanted to reciprocate everything he does for us so I bought him a copy of this book, I knew he desperately wanted.
And here is the card I created for him.

Why my heart melts

It's Wednesday! I hope your week is going great so far. Today's card is a "lovely" creation. With Valentine's Day quickly approaching I had to get right on track and make one. The stamp is from the new 2013 Magnolia collection. Isn't she lovely with that gorgeous long hair? And I think it's precious that she is wearing shoes without socks, so cute!
