Stopping by to share a card I made using Yo Soy Tu Sosten from Dilo En Español newest stamp release!  And my first origami dress.
 I used this tutorial HERE found on YouTube
It was a little tricky but not too hard to follow.

I will be linking up this card over at LUFP!

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Welcome to October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Today's hop is dedicated to those who are breast cancer survivors, mother, sister, aunt, or neighbor who have breast cancer and to those who lost the battle. Reminder: please schedule your mammogram. Self-examination doesn't always detect the nodules. 
October is Breast Cancer Awareness MonthWe have some great blog candy for this hop: Anita has graciously offered in remembrance a $20 Gift Card to Michaels to one lucky winner. Heather Dennis of Fresh Brewed Designs,  has graciously offered to sponsor with a $15 digital stamp gift card to her shop. Daisy Collins of Tsunami Rose Designs,  has graciously offered a sheet your choice of her 8.5 x 11 Vintage Digital Printable Scrapbook Paper - "Bingo" Pink,  or 8.5 x 11 Vintage Digital Printable Scrapbook Paper - "Bingo Rose" Pink,  Lynne will make one lucky winner a pink and white bracelet with a pink ribbon. For one other lucky winner, Lynne will make a pink cross that looks like it has been crocheted but made with her embroidery machine with a breast cancer awareness.  We have a beautiful group of ladies who will show-case a special project to a personal crusade for Lynne, who is a survivor!   
Hope you just arrived from Diana's Blog
For my project I created this card using two PTI dies and Dilo En Español Yo Soy Tu Sosten newly release stamp set.
The sentiment reads: United in Pink
Finished it with some ribbon and a button I purchased at my local craft store.
  And of course I will be linking up my card over at LUFP!

Dilo En Español | Mini Release Day 3

Welcome to day three of the mini release from Dilo En Español.
If you have been visiting this week, you might have notice that we are highlighting the stamp "Yo Soy Tu Sosten" set.

For today's post I decided to create this card and was able to use three of the stamps...  ánimo, Fé and the ribbon.

I used the MM breast cancer awareness collection and a die.

Dilo En Español is one of the many LUFP sponsors and I will be linking this card.  Hope you can visit them and participte.

Tomorrow we will be having a release party hop for Yo Soy Tu Sosten starting at Dilo En Español.  Hope to see you then.

Dilo En Español | Mini Release Day 2

Welcome to day two of the "Yo Soy Tu Sosten" from Dilo En Español mini release week!

I do not know what possessed me to create this card but thought it would be cute to dress Santa in pink, hot pink that is!  In my opinion Santa would support his wife in reminding her to get her mammogram!  And what better way then to remind my sister during the month of December, then with a card like this!

I used the stamp "los hombres también usan rosita" -men wear pink too! and the ribbon from this mini release that you can find HERE
Dilo En Español is one of the sponsors for Link Up For Pink so I will be linking up! Hope you can too!

I believe the paper is from the MM 2010 breast cancer awareness collection.  The Santa stamp is from PPI and the wreath die is from IO.

Thanks for stopping by.

Dilo Mini Release | LUFP

Welcome to a mini release from Dilo En Español!

Today all DT members are showcasing the "Yo Soy Tu Sostén" set made with Breast Cancer Awareness Month (October) in mind.

This is what Abby had to say in Spanish:
"El mes de octubre es conocido como el mes del apoyo para el cáncer de mama. Este mini lanzamiento inluye nada mas un set: "Yo Soy Tu Sostén". Este set se puede utilizar para hacer proyectos para dar apoyo a quienes están luchando contra este mal tan grave. Y para no errarle en darles información, mejor las invito a una pagina donde encontraras muchísima información acerca del cáncer de mama, 

Este set es muy especial porque de cada set vendido, 
parte del dinero será donado a la fundación Lazos que Perduran.
Sin mas ni menos, les presento Yo Soy Tu Sostén "

This is the card I created using the phrase "únete a la lucha"  -join the fight.

I will be linking this card to the 2nd annual Link Up For Pink that started today and will go on for 14 days!
Hope you can go participate by linking up -- they have over $4,000 worth of giveaways from 90 generous sponsors!!  Go see for more instructions!

Thanks so much for visiting!  Now time to go visit DILO EN ESPAÑOL DT ladies to see what beautiful creation they have to share (you won't be disappointed)!
