Lil Bees Blog Hop

Good morning everyone!

 We have all heard about the Blog Hops... yeap, we all become a bit of a frog and go from blog to blog hoping enjoying and learning from very creative people and participating in scrumptious give-aways at the same time.

Well, Lil Bees is having one and I hope you have stopped by from the other blogs on the list. If you have lots your way don't worry keep hoping by following the order below:

                                                               Lil Bee's 
                                                               Karla ----right now, you are here.

So have you seen the Kit for February?  Take a look.

So with this fab kit I have created a card... simple yet I looooooooove the colors. check it out and please do not hesitate in leaving a comment or a suggestion for this card.

Excuse the photographer...  I work during the day so I only had the night and lamp light to take these pictures. Take a look at the tiny cute little stamp on the next pic.

So what are you waiting for? keep hoping you are about to finish. I hope you enjoyed visiting the blogs of the designer's team and hope you are the winner of the yummy candy from Lil Bees' Boutique.

You would not want to miss the candy. Western is a company I just got to know and I have to admit the paper is of great quality easy to combine with what you probably already have at home. I will stop now and I will let you go hop away.

Lil Bees Design Team Creation

Good afternoon everybody! I hope you are doing just great. I have been busy been a mom and creating my first layout for Lil Bees's Design Team.  So Here it is...

 For this lay out I use Hero Art and Stampin' Up stamps. I use SU inks. Embellishments from Western's pages as well as the paper and glossy accents.

 I know.. this picture of us was taken looooong time ago, don't kill me I am just trying to catch up with my Scrap booking here.

I looooooove glossy accents, don't you?

I have to practice my handwriting. I have to admit that this one is not too bad.

Love the flower too...
I apologize these pictures are not the best. It's been raining here for the last two days and frankly I do not have a good camera or a set to take pictures. So bare with me as I will try to post new pictures of this layout.

Anyway, this is my entry for this week, I hope you guys continue having a restful weekend.

Wonderful Grandmother

Hello There!
 I should have tittle this post "Grandmothers"... Emma has wonderful grandmothers and this is a card I made for one of them. She is very special and I know she will appreciate this card along with the pics we sent.

We decided to stay and have Emma come to this world in Islamabad.We were by ourselves and we missed them dearly. Hugs to both of them. :( This was also a card that got lost in the mail... how frustrating this is becoming. I wish the postal service was more reliable.

Anyway... from the materials used I can't tell much since it is old paper I still have hanging around the house. I can tell you I used Stampin' Up Wonderful Favorites stamps set and ink as well as the inspiration from Kristina's template to make this card.

Hope you guys had a wonderful weekend!

The Same...

I discovered card making when I was very young and although I had no idea there were amazing products in the market I went ahead and created cards without them. It was difficult but that never stopped me. 

 When I created this layout I was well aware of the products and I was able to acquire some. But it was with the help and inspiration of a friend that I created it.

La misma means the same... I dont think I have change much and that is what this layout is about. Enjoy some of the pics I took. 

Because this layout was created such a lont itme ago I can't really tell where the paper came from,  the letters I cut myself, the pic was taken by my father and the journaling was done on computer. the little embellishments were also handmade from scratch. I remember how proud I felt of my actually very first layout.

Since I am part of  a Little Bee's design team I can't wait to create more and demonstrate to myself I can create more than just cards.

Wishing you Love and Laughter

My good friend Erica got married not too long ago. There was no time for me to prepare anything before the big day so I made this card and sent it to her with other Pakistani goodies. Sadly the card and goodies got lost in the mail :(  But  I got to take a couple of pics of this card before sending it.

I used Kristina's template to create those great layers, I cut the heart shapes by hand with an exacto knife. I used Ranger's embossing powder and Cosmo Cricket from their UPCycle collection.

I really like the results. what do you guys think?

Part of a Design Team!!!

Hello everybody,

I have been so quiet for so long but I have an excuse. At work things has gone a bit crazy, buzzzzzzzy all the time, always working, working, working like a bee... until we got a break in December and went home for our folks to me Emma. It was an amazing Christmas... I miss being with family at this time of the year. We had a wonderful but very busy time setting up our new home and visiting everybody.

Right before we left for Christmas I got an update from Hana at the Lil Bees Boutique she was looking for people to be part of her design team. I was thrill with the idea of: "MAYBE I can be part of it."

Now, I am!!! and that is the good news. Definitely wait for my first few layouts made with great products. Here is the link to Lil Bees Boutique. You can check her blog here. Noor, Teju, Sue, Nandini are all part of the DT. I will be getting their blog links soon and posted so you can follow them too.

 I truly can't wait to start posting my work.
Hugs to all!
