Paz y Amistad!

What does the title of my blog post mean.....Peace & Friendship. That's right, I'm using a stamp set that your probably do not recognize huh? Why is that you ask? Because this beautiful stamp set is found in the "Celebrando Creatividad", the Spanish Stampin' Up! Catalog!  Scroll below this 1st photo and you can view all the images and sentiments in this set, you'll understand why I just had to have it!

Look how beautiful the images are, and..........

I can translate all the wording for you. I was "aided"  by Kathya Hidalgo, a Spanish Stampin' Up! demo. Thanks Kathya!

The two-lined sentiment means "With love all things are possible"   and the longer sentiment means "Many people will come and go into your life, but only true friends will leave footprints in your heart".

I love how I was able to stamp the hands inside the wreath and cut around the inside of the hands with an exacto knife. I then slid the heart inside the cuts so it looks like the heart is  3D-ish:
