Why is it that when ever I log into blogger to write a blog post for you to read I find myself speachless?? If you have ever had the pleasure of meeting me in person you would know that I am not a girl that lacks for words, bwahahahaha! So why is it that writing something that I hope you will find interesting is so terrifying it leaves me speechless?? Uhgggg! So I will commence with my post today and pray that you enjoy reading about my life, lol.

Welcome to another Simply Sunday hosted by our fabulous and fearless leader Mrs. Kristal Andrew over at Getting Cricky. Don't you just love reading her posts on Sundays? What a wonderful gift Kristal has, I am blessed to consider her my friend. Funny story, we actually didn't know each other until a few months ago when I had posted some words of encouragement to the girls at Peachy Keen stamps one day when they were having trouble with their server during a big sale. Kristal liked my comment on facebook and I hopped over and requested her friendship, I didn't know anything about her. I'm not sure why, that's not something I normally just do but I'm sure glad I did that day. Since then I've gotten to know Kristal and learn that she is truly as sweet as she appears online, a rarity I believe these days. I feel like we are sister's now :)  She is one of the most selfless people I know. Did you know that she donates $1 from every set that she sells to a charity? Kristal is not making stamps to become rich she is making them in hopes that she can help someone else in need and touch the lives of others. This is why I love using her stamps so much! I feel like if I can inspire you and give you a new idea to use them our group effort to will make a large impact on the life of a soldier, a child or woman in need or a cancer patient.

This weekend Kristal asked us to make an inspiring creation using her set called Fashionable Friends which benefits stage 4 cancer patients. I actually can't wait to show you my card for today's Simply Sunday Challenge! I made it for a friend of ours for his 31st birthday. And let me tell you I giggled the whole time I was making it and it was the hit of the party. I'm actually giggling right now thinking about it :) So without further ado, lets take a peek.

I used my amazing silhouette to cut out the lingerie (isn't it so cute?) and then I adhered it to the card with an action wobble (this is my favorite part). Now this card was for a man so I used K Andrew Designg's Art stamps Fashionable Friends set. With the most fitting sentiment and on the inside I wrote "shake it baby, shake it!" and all night that's what everyone did. They shook the card to make the lingerie move, hehehe.

I hope you all took the time to read Kristal's inspirational post for today and left her some bloggy lovin'! I would love it if you would leave me some today too! I enjoy reading all of your comments so much :) Make sure you leave me your blog address so I can hop over to your blog and become one of your followers.

Now I guess I'm off to bed for today. Its been a busy one of  farmer's market, shopping, playing at the park, swimming at the local pool, and a campfire this evening; whew! But it was beautiful day spent with my family and I  loved every minute of it :)

I hope you all have a very blessed week and you enjoyed my post for today. Now don't forget to link up to our Simply Sunday Challenge over at Getting Cricky! This weeks challenge is Fashion-ista we'd love to see your creation and if you have Kristal's Fashionable Friends set we would love to see it in action.

Wow for a girl who was speechless I sure came up with a lot to say, hahaha :)
