Hippo-birthday card!

Today I would like to share with you a card I created using Skdigis' Happy Hippo digital stamp.  SKdigis is a new site offering cute digital stamps at very affordable prices!  The digital images are created by the very talented Sonia Kertznus.   If you like what you see, please stop by her site, SKdigis.  She has lots of cute digital stamps and she even has some freebies for you to try!  Sonia is officially launching her site on September 3rd and to celebrate it she will have a blog hop.  She will also have challenges every other week.  I'm honored to be part of her design team and I'm looking forward to creating with all of her wonderful digital images.  Hope you like it and thanks for stopping by!

I'm back!

Hello my friends! It has been over six months since my last post.  So many things have happened in my life since then... On April 10th we found out I was pregnant and even though we didn't plan it, we were very excited about the good news.  Unfortunately on April 18th, I started to have some bleeding and went to see my Ob gyn and he couldn't hear a heart beat... it has been the most painful experience in my whole life.

I do have to thank God for putting in my life my wonderful friends Jesus, Sergio and Ricardo. My husband was out of town when it all happened, so my beloved friends were there for me and my son.  I'm specially thankful to Sergio who took me to all the doctor's appointments and baby sat my little one while we were there. Good thing my dear husband made it in time for the procedure and gave me the support and strength I needed to share the bad news with my little one. My little one took it very well and I have to say that I'm amazed on how kids can understand things like this.  For me, it has been very hard but I'm trying to stay positive and thankful for the precious little one I have here with me and for my little angel in heaven.  

As you could imagine, I wasn't in the mood for crafting and I even considered selling all my stuff.  Funny thing, the same day I was going to prepare my stuff to sell,  my friend Sonia from http://skdigis.blogspot.com/ sent me an email inviting me to be part of her design team since she was launching her new digital stamps.  I took it as I sign that I should keep creating and accepted the offer.  So I will be posting my creations using her digis here in my blog and also in here challenge blog. Starting September 3rd, Sonia will have a challenge every other week where you can submit your creations for a chance to win one or two of her cute digital stamps.  You can check them out here: http://shopskdigis.blogspot.com/.  She even has some freebies for you to try.

Thanks for stopping by and hope you enjoy my post in the future.  Hugs and kisses.
