Fiesta Birthday Slimline Card + VIDEO

Hello friends,
Today I have a birthday card I made for a teacher friend.
Here it is:
I used the Hola Mexico stamp set from Waffle Flower.
I colored it with lots of Copic markers in rainbow colors. I popped up the dancer, the papel picado banner, and the piñata. Since I wanted to use as many of the cute images, I decided that a Slimline card was in order! For details, I added Stickles to the banners, piñata, her dress, and the hats.

Here's a peek at the innies:
The "felicidades" is a Tim Holtz' die. I didn't even know he created dies in Spanish until I ran across them by chance on Simon Says Stamp! I was so excited to see T!M created dies in Spanish *Ü* Felicidades means "Congratulations" or "Best Wishes" in this case for a birthday. In case you're wondering about the upside down (inverted) exclamation mark, in Spanish, an exclamation mark (or question mark) is used before the expression and after it. It alerts the reader, that there is an exclamatory ( or interrogatory) phrase coming up.

Guess what? There's a video of how this card came together.
or watch it ----> HERE, if you'd like.

Thanks so much for stopping by. Hope you're all in good health!
Until next time...

Crafty Catch-Up!

Hello crafty friends,
I know it's been way too long since I posted. That was right before the shut down happened and Distance Learning began. I just finished on Friday and cannot stress enough how relieved I am. I was glad to see my students (when they managed to turn on their video), but am worried for the ones I didn't hear from. I'm hoping it was simply because they didn't want to bother. My district made the decision to give all students, regardless of their grade at the time, a "credit" for their semester grade. So that meant that if they had an A, they got "credit" on their transcript. If they had an F, they got "credit" on their transcript. Ah well... more on that later...

Since I was crazy busy trying to learn a million tech things, I totally neglected my poor little blog. So let's catch up why don't we? Remember, I post regularly on Instagram, so that's the best way to see what I'm up to when you don't hear from me here...
