Crafty Friendship Blog Hop!

Hola!!
Today I'm celebrating crafty friendship with a group of crafty friends with an amazing blog hop

If you're hopping from the sweet and talented Francesca, you're on the right place. If not, and you want to start from the beggining, go to Heidi's blog :)

Esther Rovira from Arcadia de Papel Blog is the special Honoree of this year's blog hop, because her support to many blogs, in Spain, USA, and some other places in the world. 
Also we chose this date because is her blog's anniversary!
And she happens to choose me as the special guest for the blog hop!! I can't tell you how happy and honored it makes me feel :)
Esther is spanish like me and she's very supportive and nice. She always put a smile on my face with her comments.



I want to dedicate this post to all my blog followers, all who take the time to leave those comments that always brighten my day and to all that don't comment but are also there. I'm so thankful for you, for your time and your kind words, for having me in your life.
I don't leave comments as frequently as I would like to do so I really appreciate the people that give their time as gifts supporting others with their comments and love. When Heidi sent me the list of participants in the blog hop I said: Gosh! I already know almost all these girls! And I know them because of their comments on my blog ot flickr and I tell you, I love all of them. They're super talented, sweet and supportive :)

How amazing is this crafty world, it's full of incredible people and I made a lot of friends from all around the world, people that I would never know if Internet would not exist.

So I'm totally in celebrarting crafty friendship, I already have my party hat on! Let's go, here's my card :)

I wanted to keep the card simple with a lot of wite space and a big pop of color. I just love that sentiment, it's from an old set but the font is super pretty, don't you think?
I stamped all the background with soft grey trees and colored the sky only inside the frame.


Friends Forever

I removed the ink from the faces of these two furry friends so they look as you were seeing them from the back. So they are enjoying each other while looking to the horizont into the woods... It's also like a "you color my world" reference :) Yes, I'm loosing my mind lol

Friends Forever - detail

Anyway, I hope you like it!

I saw your card over at the Lawn Fawn Blog and had to come over and tell you how much I love it.

The colors and layout of your card are just perfect.

Unknown said...

This is the most adorable card. The images are so cute and your layout is brilliant. I love that you removed the critter's faces to give the appearance of seeing them
from the back. Such a clever idea.

Thank you for sharing your talent...I love learning new ways to see things.
