Challenge #53 Christmas

Morning ladies,

As Christmas closes in on us, Latinas en America is celebrating it in big with our last project for the year. I wanted to take the time and Thank every one of my design team member, these girls are amazing no matter what they always there for you, true friends, as well as many other wonderful ladies I have met this year.

The sponsor for this week's challenge is the awesome Paper Shelter with a $20.00 Gift Certificate. 

I created a little box that holds Christmas gifts for my co-workers. It's made out of red and green cardstock, tied with a double sided ribbon, I used the Are you Ready my Friend? digi from the Paper Shelter as my main image and added some bling bling.... What do you guys think?

Love, Tahi

Bountiful Blessing

Happy Friday my friends,

Today is Challenge #57 over at Pattie's Creations Challenge  and the theme is Harvest time or Thanksgiving Holiday. The sponsor for this challenge is Dude Time Doodles and I have used Bountiful Blessing digi.

My recipe for this card is really simple... I used Apple Cider pattern paper from Bobunny a ribbon I had in my stash and I used the Lacey Squares Spellbinders die.

Time To Celebrate!

Hi there,

Today is a special day for my family it is my  my nephew's birthday! It seems like only yesterday I was holding his tiny body in my arms. Today he's turning 16, oh my how time flies!

I found it funny how Challenge #56 theme over at  Pattie's Creations Challenge is  about birthdays, perfect for today HA!

While this is not a very masculine card (which I fail to create every time) it sure shows that "birthday spirit". This little cat seems to appreciate the true meaning of birthdays as does my nephew. The smallest of things can have the biggest influence on people (like a little cupcake for example). I have grown to be very fond of Copic Sketch Markers in which I use in almost all my cards. The small bow adds to this simple yet heartfelt card.

Now that you have seen my creation go over to Pattie's Creations blog and leave us your entry!
