PPA 31 Inspiration Challenge

This is the photo for the Pals challenge and this is my interpretation:

Mojo Monday 127 Un nuevo Mañana

Hello Friends!  Thanks for visiting my blog, I really appreciate your visit and your comments.  This is my interpretation for the Mojo Monday Challenge 127. The sentiment is an almost literal translation of a sentiment I found in the internet, in English.  I made the layout in Picture it! and then printed it. All the paper and cardstock is from Stampin'Up.  Thanks for stopping by!

Thoughts of Comfort, Peace and Love

 Here is another Sympathy card made over the week-end.  I hope I do not need it.  It is not easy to contact someone when a loved one had gone but Sympathy is always appreciated.  The layout is from a challenge I found somewhere.  I do not remember where but found it very balanced and beautiful. In the inside I used rub-ons I had and never used.  I liked the final result very much.

Chose Hope

I recently was in need of a Sympathy card for a fried that lost his father.  All the cards I had stored was kind of femenine, then, I realized that I seldom make masculine cards but for an specific birthday card or Father's Day!  Well, this was my first attempt.

PPA Challenge Kiss

Hello friends.  This week the PPA challenge is all about simplicity.  Keep it Simple Sweetie!  Nothing more appropriate for me since I have been ill this week and in no mood to do anything.  In my card for today I used scraps of paper from previous projects, all Stampin'Up and Kraft cardstock, a scrap of ribbon and a piece hodgepodge hardware.  Nothing less complicated! But it turned out very nice.
