DIA DE LA MADRE-Mother's Day


 Black  and yellowcard stock, silk flower, button, Fracey Lynne digital leaves, Edwardian computer font, Sizzix embossing background



This week we are back to a colour challenge and the chosen colour this time is 
Y E L L O W
Other colours may be in evidence as long as the main focus colour is yellow.


El primer domingo de mayo es el día de las madres en España, aprovechando el reto he decidido dedicar esta tarjeta a mi madre, una mujer luchadora, entregada a sus hijos y que espero que la vida solo le traiga cosas buenas porque le ha traído algunas muy malas, pero sobre todo espero que este mucho tiempo a mi lado con plenas facultades, no quiero ni siquiera intentar imaginar como seria el mundo sin mi madre...o al menos mi mundo.
Deseo que todas las buenas madres tengan grandes bendiciones en este día y especialmente la mía.
Os deseo un feliz día de la madre



ST. LUKE'S CHARITY CHALLENGE

EN HOMENAJE A MI ABUELA--IN MEMORIAN TO MY GRANDMOTHER

 Papermania card cream, artemio satmp, promarker, frames by Sizzix, rhinestones by Papermania


This month at St Luke's there is only one rule and that is to have no layers on your card - stamp, draw, ink, emboss - whatever technique you fancy  - just do it directly onto the base card.




Esta maquina de coser es muy especial para mi, para empezar porque me la dejo mi abuela en herencia, el 18 de abril hizo cinco años que nos dejo y es curiosos porque los recuerdos de las personas que no están se hacen mas nítidos y presentes cuando no están...es quizá por eso que a medida que el ser humano envejece recuerda mejor su niñez que lo que ha hecho hace una hora.

Cuando yo tenia 6 años mi abuela estaba cosiendo yo estaba sentada al lado de ella jugando con una tela y haciendo como que cosía, entonces mi abuela dejo de coser y me dijo, quieres aprender a coser??? y le dije que si, ese fue el inicio de mi historia con los hilos las agujas, el club de costura donde iba mi abuela para hacer ropa para enviar a África para los necesitados y sobre todo los vestidos para mis muñecas.

Mi abuela compro esta maquina a plazos cando vino desde Granada  con mi abuelo porque le ofrecieron trabajo en Palma, esta maquina tiene 50 años y funciona como la seda...es uno de los mayores tesoros de mi casa, mi abuela siempre me decía, cuando yo me muera la maquina es para ti, es curiosos, pero mi abuela hablaba de la muerte con toda naturalidad, como algo implícito en la vida, sin sentir la angustia de la partida...y creo que yo he heredado esa forma de hablar de mi abuela, le tengo miedo a la muerte, sobre todo porque tengo un hijo pequeño, pero sin embargo no tengo ningún problema en hablar de la muerte y de lo que quiero para cuando no este, contradictorio, pero es así...

La primera vez que cosí fue un pantalón para una muñeca muy pequeña, mi abuela me explico como hacerlo y empecé con mi tarea, cuando termine de coser los pantaloncitos descubri con estupor que mi entusiasmo habia sido tan grande que habia cosido alrededor de toda la pieza, no podia meter el muñeco, tal habia sido mi entusiasmo con la aguja que ni me di cuenta...este es uno de los recuerdos mas intensos que he tenido de mi infancia...

De esta maquina han salido los disfraces de todos sus nietos, cortinas, trajes..., recuerdo que en verano ibamos a su casa y mi madre nos hacia la ropa, mi madre es modista de alta costura, siempre he estado rodeada de hilos, agujas, tijeras, jaboncillos....patrones, que mi madre me enseño a sacarlos...

Esta maquina es AMOR, veranos de risas, fiestas, chachara, paciencia y ahora...mucha nostalgia y un poco de tristeza, y como mi abuela para mi fue mi segunda madre le quiero hacer este homenaje con esta entrada y con esta tarjeta, nada mas ver este sello pensé en la maquina de mi abuela y que tenia que comprarlo y hacer algo, la voy a enmarcar y ponerla en la maquina....para no olvidar de donde vengo, porque soy como soy y todo lo que no me enseñaron de la vida...


 Winter Wonderland challenge

  31. All your cards are wonderful Loli but I do love your one for our One Layer Challenge at St Lukes and the fantastic story behind it. What a wonderful piece of furniture to have to remind you of learning to sew with your grandmother - a great gift for her to have given you both in the learning and the physical object.
    Thanks for joining us again.

    Thanks so much for your really lovely comments on my blog, its really appreciated! I hope the bird houses went well with your son's teachers - they are so cute aren't they. Hope you had a great Mother Days yesterday.

    Have a great day

  38. You've made 3 super cards Loli. I love the bloom on your mother's day card and the old sewing machine on your second. My Granny also had a sewing machine that takes me back to my child hood. I liked to press the foot lever when she wasn't using it and pretend I was sewing. It was a Singer but looked very much like yours. Gorgeous sparkly christmas card too. Take care. x
