For this favoulous challenge, I decided to use Pink Gem Designs' file "A Fairy Nice Day", which is super easy to print, cut, layer, and voila you have nice birthday card:

 I took this picture at night, thus my lightning is not great

 For the inside of the card, I decided to create some balloons with the reminder images of this kit.

 Here a better picture with more lights.

 Here you can see the layers,

 Here my daughter personalizing the card.

 Her final result.

The other side.

I hope you enjoyed this quick and easy card.
Many blessings,

Vicky Tovar

Blog Hop: Get Well Soon Blog Hop


Welcome to the 
Get Well Soon Blog Hop
Being Sick is definitely not fun! Recovering from a surgery, accident, or severe illness is even worse. We are here to spread some sunshine and smiles and help inspire you to remember that sending even the simplest of cards to someone when they are feeling bad can help brighten their day.

If you just happened upon this spectacular hop, Connie Can Crop is the first stop in this hop. 

This is a one day blog hop, but you have until Sunday to finish hopping and leaving your comments for all of these amazing crafters.

For this hop, I decided to go all monochrome with a little bit of white and lite purple:


I stamped the 3 different rectangles with FSJ stamps, and had 2 of them embossed with a hearts embossing folder from CTMH.


For the inside, I used a Annie's Attic sentiment from their monthly card club advertising:


These were my supplies:



I hope you enjoy this hop and keep Connie and her friend's family in your prayers.

Pile It On! #126 - Hearts on Fire

Dear scrappers,

There is a new challenge at Pile It On:

"""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""

The theme this fortnight at Pile It On is Hearts on Fire (Hearts, Fire, or Red/Orange Color Scheme, Chinese New Year of the Fire Rooster, etc.) Have fun with the theme!








We're sponsored by Pink Gem Designs, and one lucky participant (chosen from challenges #126 & #127will win 2 digi stamps/card toppers of their choice! The Top Picks for this challenge will be announced on February 26 and the Prize Winner will be announced on March 12.
"""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""

Here is my project,

A combination of upcycling/recycling and a minialbum:








I made both for my children's school Gala. For the basket of our classroom, which was a massage package and some jewelry both donate by the other room mom.

Here are my supplies, from a swirlydoos monthly kit and first I wanted to use the Graphic 45 box displayed here, but I change my mind:




 I ended up suing these dies instead:


 The box is from a Prada perfume gift set, which had that ribbon already:

 I used some of the Prima flowers included in this kit to add some shine and texture to the box., as well as the heart chalkboard toothpicks.


I wrote down  the title of the basket: Beauty  and Bling:



This is the final Result.

Here with the mini album besides it and jewelry displayed:



The second part of this project is the mini album: ( I will have a Snapguide ready to explain the details of this project.)




Here the inside pages with the open hearts or closed as envelopes:











Here the back cover with my signature stamp:

Again both. And the final basket as was sent to the Gala:

And the back:


I hope you enjoyed this pkrohcts and come back to see the link to my Snapguide.
Many blessings
Vicky Tovar
