OK so obviously I went on in my intro and forgot to mention that you should be coming over from Kristal's blog. Lol. I hope you were able to make it to the U-Stream and win some of the goodies she was giving away. Plus she had a surprise in store for you, which was to show off her 2 new sets! I decided to use them tonight and give you sneak peeks for those sets.
For my first project, I used the new Splashtastic Summer set. They are such cuuuuuute summer sayings. I just love these! I will definitely be using them for all my summer loving projects. I wanted to use some of the cute sayings that can also be used as positive thoughts. For my cuts, I used Create a Critter, Life is a Beach and Doodlecharms. This set is already available in her shop.

For my 2nd project I used the Amazing You set. Now I just looooooove this set because of the words and because its a mix and match. Actually, half of her stamp sets are m+m which makes them very versatile, and in my book that's an A+. hehehe. ** This set is already available for pre-purchase.

Ok so the way this set works is you start with the "You are" stamp and then use one of the middle sentiments like "beautiful" or "brilliant" and then you end it with "my friend".
As you can see, I didnt quite use it the way I was suppose to. Oh-oh, Im going to get a time out. hehe But I wanted to show you that it can be used in other ways as well. I decided to use "beautiful" first and then used "my friend" but masked off the "my" part. I then drew on the "S" so it can read "Beautiful Friends"
The meaning behind my card was to give to a friend that is feeling down. I wanted it to be a cheery friend card and I also wanted it to look like a Polaroid. Remember those? :) Oh! how I loved taking Polaroid pictures with my friends. Those were definitely cool in their time. For my images, I used stamps from the Teen Scene line from Simply Betty Stamps. *Please note that those stamps were also altered. Lol!!! It seems as if I love to alter my stamps.
I hope you enjoyed my sneak peeks. I hope you come back as I will be having more sneak peeks. Plus, lots will be going on here. :)
Thanks for hopping by! Your next stop is Kathy from the 3E's Blog.
