Guest Design Week 15: Day 4

"An Apple is a terrific thing--until you tried a peach".

Good Morning my Peachy friends! It's day 4 of my 5 day reign as Peachy Keen Guest Design Week, and I've definitly enjoyed my visit to Peachy-land! Who agrees? Once you've had Peachy Keen stamps, you are spoiled.... No diecut will ever be the same, without a sweet peachy face on it! Am I right? heehee!

What Odds by K Andrew
Supplies: Cartridge: Gypsy, Basketball Cricut Cartridge (Provocraft), Stamps: Medium Critter Faces (Peachy Keen), Sentiment: Computer, Cardstock: Bazill Basics Paper, Ink: Memento, White Signo Pen, Copic International, Ribbon: Jo-Ann Essentials

(If you have the basketball cartridge,and a gypsy, just download the file, and it will be a snap to make this card for that special little one in your life!)

I've always made a total effort,
even when the odds seemed entirely against me.
I never quit trying;
I never felt that I didn't have a chance to win.
-Arnold Palmer
This card is for my dear Jasper. If you want to hear the whole story, make sure to stop over by my blog Getting Cricky.

I used the pk-754Medium Critter Faces for the sweet little face on my basketball! I told you I LOVE that set medium critters. It was my first PK stamp set and still one of my favorites...it gets ALOT of use! lol!
TIP: to use these stamps all you have to do is find a diecut and ink up one of these adorable face stamps and press it on....instantly giving your plain diecut a personality and great character! Think about it....would that basketball card be as sweet and funny without that peachy face? Nope, it certainly wouldn't....it's all in how we see things, isn't it?
My peachy giveaway today is this ADORABLE set: pk-543 Itty Bitty Snow Faces. I wanted to make sure to offer some type of seasonal face stamp too...and this one is just one of my favorites! Make sure to leave me a comment here AND at my blog Getting Cricky to enter to win. I'm giving away a face set each day, so if you missed my previous 3 posts, go back and leave a comment. Tomorrow I'm offering a BIG set, and then Saturday I'll draw winners for all 5 PK stamp sets, and announce on my blog! Woot! Woot!
PS these face stamps look awesome on vegetables and scarecrows too! Don't forget, you can always use a marker (waterbased--like Stampin Up, Zig) to color in the features you want, and just not color in the one you don't want. Like for instance, the first face, I've colored in and just not used the carrot nose--then just added a small upside down u for a nose--super cute!!!

Don't forget to be a super sweet peach and roll on over to my little blog Getting Cricky, and give me some peachy-pie lovin' over there! Thanks for letting me share a bit of my day with you.

All the Peachy Best-from My Hands to Yours,
K Andrew of Getting Cricky!

Such an awesome card and YES that adorable little face adds SOOOOO much!! Thanks for the reminder about using a marker to only use certain parts of the stamp -- I love those seasonal faces, but often overlook them in the spring and summer... No more!! :)

That's an excellent philosophy of Arnie Palmer's: "I've never thought I didn't have a chance to win." Four years ago, I ran for local elective office against huge odds and against the favored incumbents; I ran thinking that I'd have a snowball's chance in Hades of winning. I learned then if you give it your all, you CAN win, and I did. It was a valuable life's experience for me, and one of my proudest accomplishments. Thank you for allowing me to remember it! I'm having an "off day" so I needed that kick in the pants!

Your posts make me smile so proudly that my caricature should be used for a PKS!
