Market Street a la Mexicana Series! Week #1

Hello friends! I have a new love!!! I can say it without being afraid!!! I love these new stamps more than my Peachy Keen ones!!! Yes!! It does not mean, in any way, that I don't adore my PKS, but... Angelica, the Peachy Queen's daughter has a new line of stamps and one of the collections is my new favorite!

This is the BFFs collection! My new true love! Ok... I know I am exagerating a little... but, I am a Mexican American and I am a Spanish Literature teacher and well, honestly, there aren't many Latino/bilingual stamps out there... well, any that are as cute as these! 

To celebrate Market Street Stamps new bilingual collection, I am doing this series! 
I have created cards using these stamps with Mexican Sayings/Dichos Mexicanos. The sayings I will be using are very popular in Mexico and might be also used in other Spanish speaking countries. I hope with this series inspire many others to use other languages they know in their scrapping.
Hey! You might learn some Spanish along the way!! The cards have the sayings/sentiments in Spanish but I will translate them for you!

So, onto my first card!




Saying:

¡Estás como los frijoles, al primer hervor se arrugan!
(You are like beans, at their first boil they shrivel!)

Now, you might be thinking a few things... like: What the heck!! LOL 
This card would be appropriate for someone who is afraid of something (new school, new job) and it might be a little cruel... but I love it!!!

You will also learn a little Spanish grammar along the way :) First Spanish grammar lesson:
            ***when using an exclamation mark in a sentence, you have to put one 
                 upside-down at the beggining of the sentence in Spanish. 

I will do this series for at least 6 weeks and at the end I will give away the set of cards to one person who has left a comment on all posts.

Thanks for taking a peek I hope you enjoy them!!!

I love love your design and the saying you chose is not cruel at all, I had not commented because I was thinking it was too funny... it looses it's meaning in the translation... and you know me, I am so very proud of my Mexican heritage, so I am so happy that Angelica came out with this stamps, kind of "why didn't I think of that?" ... Oh wait, yes, you and I have talked about it, but not acted on it! HELLO!!!

I love that you are going to be doing these series.

I love how you did her eyelashes (both)
Great job comadrita!! Can't wait for the next one!
