Today we are featuring the "Positive Thoughts" stamp set at Getting Cricky. If you are not familiar with this stamp set, please take a look. This is one of my favorite and most used stamps sets I have.
My Granddaughter LOVES the butterflies on this set. She used them as a background on her Father's Day card to her Daddy (my eldest son). She said her Daddy makes her as happy as butterflies flying over the flowers. LOL
Here are my two projects for today
I got this little lamb piecing file at Paper Piecings By Nikki. The paper is from a paper pack I got from Close To My Heart, called "Dotty for you". The twine and sentiment came from Positive Thoughts. I think this sentiment is perfect for the little lamb. Gosh, life is just so short - it's so much easier to 'forgive' and just get on with the work at hand. Lexi always asks, "Nana do you forgive me?" Usually it's after she breaks something or spills something....and I always say, "Yes, Lexi, Nana forgives you." She'll hug me and then look over her back as she walks away saying, "Okay then, it's over and forgotten." LOL How I wish I could be like her when I grow up!
My second card is also a piecing from Paper Piecings By Nikki and my very first attempt at making a tear bear and using that awesome mulberry paper. Now, don't laugh too hard. When I got done with him, he wasn't exactly as in envisioned he'd look like - but I loved him anyway. He looked a little worn and worried, so I stuck him on this rocket and Kristal's "Positive Thoughts" stamp set "Brave is Beautiful" seemed the perfect sentiment - after all - what wouldn't we all do for love...lol
Lexi thinks this little bear looks worried. I think maybe he's having second thoughts. Either way, I think he's pretty cute.
Now, if you'd like to see more "Positive Thought" inspiration, please head back to Getting Cricky. The Incredibly Talented Amy Voltz has some awesome designs for you. I can only hope that my work will be as beautiful as hers is one day. This lady really puts the 'professional' in her designs.

Also, Kristal is giving away $140 worth of stamps - all you have to do is take a picture of yourself with your re-usable coffee cup and submit it. You have until the 14th of July to do so!
