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!
¡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!!!
