I will be back soon...

Sorry for disappearing. Nothing to post today. No cards, no pictures.

I have been through tough moments in the past weeks that I just do not have any energy for anything...I am just trying to hang in there until all this roller coaster go away...
I married 3,5 years ago with a dream to have a family but I did not know that this person that I chose to be my life partner were so different in real life...

There is a Brazilian song that has a beautiful sentence that for me is one of the secrets of a great relationship, it says "our freedom is what tie us together"...

I will be back soon and maybe with even more inspiration for cards ..

Good night!

I have a lot to do around the house today but hopefully later tonight I will gather my papers and stamps and work on some creation...Hope you all a great day! xoxo, Milla :)

Truly Scurmptious - Challenge 10

And this is for the Truly Scrumptious Challenge 10...hurry up today is the last day to post...
xoxo, Milla :)

Just Magnolia - Bev's Sketch

Hello...this is my first Magnolia stamp. It took me sometime to buy it because I knew it once I started I would not stop. They are sooo cute! This card will be sent to my sister-in- law who lives in Rio de Janeiro with my brother with some nice gifts. I have been missing them a lot and nothing better than a card in a mail to tell them that right? And at same time I took the opportunity to participate in the Just Magnolia fun. Hope you like it...I will be uploading another card in a minute while I am in my lunch break! xoxo, Milla :)

Truly Scrumptious Challenge

For this challenge I decided to make a boyish card. The theme is altered flower, but I thought would be too girlie to put a flower on the card, so I decided to use a smiley sun to symbolize "my altered flower". I guess the weather yesterday inspired me... :)

Stamp:Greeting Farm
Sun and Clouds: Cricut Hello Kitty and embossed with Cuttebug
Coloring: Copics
Paper and embelishments: Got it at Joann's

Have all a great week! xoxo, Milla :)

Door Hanger

Beautiful day in Miami sunny sky!

One of the projects I always wanted to make was a door hanger for my craft room. Then one of these days, I was shopping for materials (as always and usual..) and I found a plain wood hanger at Michaels for $1!!! And this pink hanger came out of that! Do something fun today whatever part of the world you are...xoxo, Milla :)

Stampavie Challenge #6 - Flowers

Finally Friday!
I have not been posting here lately but every single day I check what it is going on in the "card making world" to have some inspirations. It is great to see crafters participating in different types of challenges and to see the ones that create the challenges how creative they are!
Flowers are a great theme, because I love flowers and it is a perfect match for Sarah Kay stamps, since they are so romantic and girlie... During this week I made this card for the Stampavie Challenge #6 . I used my favorite Sarah Kay stamp. For the printed flowers I used Cricut and embossed it with Cuttlebug Swiss dots. The others embellishments are just regular ones you can find at Joann or Michaels (ribbon, velum, flowers). Punch Martha Stewart and coloring with Copics. One thing that I first tried in this card was sponging around the stamp. I loved the effect! I guess this was one more thing I just learned...;0). The videos and tutorials from others blogs are helping me a lot and I really appreciate all the experienced ones who share their little "secrets" with beginners like me. Thanks for stopping by today... Hope you like my flower card! xoxo, Milla :)

SAV Challenge #5 - A sketch for you

I am getting addicted to the challenges!!It is sooooo much fun just to participate and enjoy others people creativity around the world!
This one was a difficult one for me since I did not have any tool to cut the corners perfect round. After many try outs I gave up and decide it to make it square... I hope it will still be valid! Papers, flowers and gems I got at Joann except the stamp which is Rachelle Anne Miller. Coloring with Copics and use Cricut "walk in my garden" cartridge for the sentiment. Cats are my favorites pets! Hope you like it! xoxo, Milla :)

Stampavie Challenge #4 - Blue and Brown

I am running to have the card uploaded so I do not miss the cut off date...but my cat Speedy is making my life difficult!! He wants to play with the card and eat the flowers!! I had to use my Iphone for the pictures since I could not find my camera cable. The pictures are not that great but I guess you can have an idea how the card turned out. Brown and Blue at least!
I use for this card:
Rachelle Miller stamps (I love!), DCWV - The Spring Stack paper collection (got in Joann for a bargain!), flowers, button, stamp, ribbon, gems and Martha Stewart punch from Michaels and colored with Copics. Hope you like it!
If you wanna be part of this fun go to and participate!

Enjoy the weekend! xoxo, Milla :)

Stampavie Challenge #3

Hi everyone,
One more week has passed by... And with all the daily activities, I had time to create this apple card, which I enjoyed a lot! The theme for Stampavie #3 Challenge was circles, so I thought round apples would fit well. All the papers I got at Michaels as well as the Martha Stewart punch. I use Memento black ink and Copics to color the stamp. The Sarah Kay stamp are from Stampavie of course! I am a big fan of them! Hope you like it! xoxo, Milla :)

My First Challenge - Stampavie Pink and Brown

Hi everyone,
I am proud to announce my first challenge in the stamp world! I tried to do as much pink and brown as I could. Even without having many tools and resources I personally liked it!
Hope you did too. I need candies to complete my materials!!!
Good luck to everyone! xoxo, Milla :)

It is ready!

Hi everyone,
I just finished my card for the Stampavie Challenge! I am drinking now a glass of wine at 2:00a.m. to commemorate!! Since I am new on the block, I do not have many materials to develop a fancy card with a lot of details but with the few materials I have I was able to come out with something cute. I will upload tomorrow, since I still need to take a picture of the card and during the day that's the best time. Miami will be 80's tomorrow so I guess I will have a lot of sun to take a beautiful picture. Let me know your thoughts. Critics are always welcome!! Good night...xoxo, Milla :)
