CAS-ual Fridays & Retrosketches challenges...and a little bit about myself...


I am back with a couple of cards to finish Easter Week!

This time I am making two cards for two different challenges, so I am very excited about it.

I made a card for the CAS-ual Fridays challenge.

  And I am participating on Retrosketches Challenge #6 with two cards.

Am I becoming a challenges addict?  hehe...I am not really sure, but I can tell you that this is a wonderful way to me to keep me up making cards and I am really enjoying it!

Ok, so no more talking, unto the cards....For the CAS-ual Fridays card I also used the "retrosketches" sketch and made this Easter card.

I hope you like it.

It is a really simple card, but I enjoyed making it.  I tried to "pop up" the front part, so you could see the egg on the back of the card, sort of speaking.  

The circles and dots of the egg have some little bit of glitter...I looove glitter ;)

I also made this other card using the same sketch.  This sketch is very versatile, you can use it for so much different themes.

Finally, I wanted to tell you just a little bit about myself.

I been married for 13 years and I am a stay at home mom to Valeria 8, Adrian 5 and Gabriel 3.

I am from Costa Rica.  So, excuse me if sometimes my English is not that good.  

Sometime ago, I lived in North Carolina with my sister for a short period of time and then I came back to my country.  Definitely part of my heart stayed there... <3

I fell in love with making cards about 4 years ago.  A friend here in Costa Rica introduced me to it.  And then my lovely cousin, who lives in Indiana has teach so many wonderful things.  

I used to take classes here, but I have learn mostly by myself, watching other people cards and watching videos.  I tried to do the best I can with the supplies I have.

In Costa Rica cardmaking is super popular, but I want to learn more, and I want to know even more...things that here are still not known.  :)

Thanks for taking the time to come to my blog.

Love, Alejandra :)
