Seasonal Sayings Spanish Style

I hope that everyone had a great weekend! I have a NEW goal for myself this year and that is to learn SPANISH!  I have so many friends that speak Spanish and I desperately want to be able to have a conversation with them, so I have decided to take classes. :)  In the spirit of my new desire I made today’s project!
seasonal sayings, embossing folder, big shot, ribbon, handmade cards, framelits, polka-dots

I thought this was a great stamp set to use for a few challenges that helped in the inspiration department- sketch from Freshly Made Sketches, theme from Just Add Ink (to use polka-dots) and the color scheme from Play Date Cafe.

 I took my Night of Navy Marker and colored the raised polka-dots that I embossed on some Sahara Sand card stock, easy way to create some patterned paper.The thing I love the most about this card was that the sentiment had polka-dots in it as well! LOVE IT!!  I really like how neutral the color scheme is for this card so you could give it to a guy.

Here is what I used to create this card:
Ink & Paper: Whisper White, Sahara Sand,Night of Navy, Peach Parfait
My favorite thing to do during the holiday season is to create gift projects to give to neighbors, Teachers, kids class mates, office staff and everyone else I know (especially with treats).  I think it is a wonderful way to say THANK YOU to all of those who give of their talents and time to me and my family members- if you feel like this I have the perfect solution you!!  Here is a little sneak peek to the HALLOWEEN SPECIALTY CLASS 
 coming up on Oct. 6th!! You won’t want to miss it!!
Monster Munchies, treat bags, project kits, googlie eyes
