Peachy Keen Guest Designer Week 15: Day 2

Apples are red, plums are blue, Peachy Keen is sweet, and so are you!

Welcome back to another peachy day! It's me, K Andrew from Getting Cricky on my second day in the peachy job of Guest Designer!
Today, I was able to play along with the other fabulous Peachy Keen designers for the Tuesday Challenge. We were asked to use this sketch as show below:


I decided to use my super "tweet" Happy Bird set (pk-267) to make a super quick card to celebrate Peachy Keen's 50'th Challenge! The trick was to use gold! I took this "golden"opportunity (heehee) to use the sketch to it's maximum. It took me 15 minutes to make this card, and I think it turned out really cute!!! However, the stamp set is the tweetest thing I've ever seen! It includes the happiest little bird in the world and two sentiments on that yummy peachy polymer! This little bird is my alter ego--because I too believe in being as happy as you can be. Life is wonderful my sweet peachy friends!!

I am not a great shader/colorer unfortunately. It's just something I dont' focus on alot. I'm more of a coloring book girl. You know color in the lines, and call it a day? heee! That's me! However, I love this bird stamp because I could color it in shades of gold/browns, and voila! I think for a 20 minute card (including cutting time for scallop/coloring of image) it is simply Tweet-tastic!

If You're Happy & You Know It--Flap Your Wings by K Andrew
 Supplies: Stamp: Peachy Keen Stamps (pk267). Cardstock: Nikki Sivils, Bazzill Basics Paper, Ribbon: Crinkle Silk by May Arts, Flower: Creative Charms, Bling: Creative Charms, Ink: Copics International, Memento
Now I really hope you will consider hopping over to the PK Challenge blog and playing along this week. PK has a fabulous prize if you are the lucky winner!

Today's Peachy Giveaway-Today I'm giving away this super sweet peachy keen stamp set: Funshine Faces Side Views. These faces are perfect for side-views! I just love them!
Dont' forget every day I'm giving away a different set to a sweet follower! Please make sure to leave me a comment here, then roll on over to my blog, Getting Cricky to see what I have in store for you over there, and to get signed up for this adorable giveaway!

See you tomorrow for another fun day here at Peachy Keen Stamps--the sweetest stamps there is!
