(MFEO) "Made for Each Other"...

So I got this great new stamp set from BCDzyns "And Then I Said", for many reasons, because:
I love the girl and all the sayings,
I love Kim (whom Gina also loves, which automatically made us friends by proxy, and I've had the pleasure of hanging with her twice!), AND
I knew when I saw this set, that it + several of mine* (and a little "out of the box" vision) would = MAGIC!

First, I gave her a haircut and a new freakin' sweet TEE! (using my "Tee Talk" set; layout is this week's SCS Sketch challenge)
Oh, but do you even recognize this girl with her flirty new 'do?! (I had my hair long for years, but not anymore! A lot of the ladies I send cards to wear their hair shorter also, so I'm SO excited about making different looks with this one stamp...) Check out how very easy it is to crop that luxurious mane!
Don't you love it?! Now look at these below, don't they all look like completely different girls? And all the single words from all THREE of my shirt sets fit, woo hoo! (yeah, it totally looks like we planned it, even though we didn't, hee hee!! Just about one of the most perfect combos ever from two different stamp companies on one project, dontcha think!) Is that fun or what??

I had an absolute blast coloring about 15 of these ladies with my Copics(all from Box A)** the other night to look like people I know (and a few I don't, hee!), and with customized t-shirts to go with LOL!! I'll be back to show you just how to create each of these styles (plus several more, you really won't believe!), along with cards to match, but I'm not even close to being done with showing you what else you can do with these sets together (and with another one of mine from Gina K Designs!! Can you guess which?) Hopefully I've already got you thinking you need them ALL...
If you're a first-time customer of My Favorite Things or BCDzyns, when you order ('cuz I know you want to!) please let Kim know "Melanie" sent you! ;) (and if you're an MFT regular, but don't have any of my "Tee" sets yet, well...what are you waiting for??) :)
More to come!!!
** My coloring's really improving, no?? It's practice, AND that great paper!! :)
Card also uses Brushed Silver CS, self adhesive rhinestones, Floral Fantasy CB folder
