Prettie Wednesday

Hello everyone and welcome to Prettie Wednesday!!LOL!! Okay, I am in a HUGE hurry today, my sister was admitted to the hospital last night for monitoring for Preeclampsia. If she hasn't had her baby by Thursday evening, they are inducing her!! YAYYYY!!! I am so excited for him to be here, and I need to get my butt up to her house to get it clean for when they come home. I have to work on Thursday so I have today to get it all done!! I will probably spend the night on Thursday night in the waiting room and hopefully we will have a baby soon!! My sister isn't all that jazzed about having a Friday the 13th baby, but maybe it will be a blessing in disguise, I mean, he is the miracle baby!! Here is my card for today's Prettie Wednesday challenge. I used the very first set I ever bought from Paper Pretties, Look Who's Perky. I was enticed into going by all the fabulous cards Charmaine was posting and lets just say, the rest is history!! Jillian's challenge from two weeks ago was to make it new again, so I thought that was appropriate. I stamped the tea pot twice, once on Daisy Buckets Secret Garden Dp and once on Very Vanilla. I colored in the parts I didn't paper piece, used some SU paper, followed the SCS sketch for today, and added my big bow at the top, you know I love em!! Next weeks challenge is being hosted by me and it is to use BRIGHT colors including ORANGE-yuk!! Joni is this weeks challenger and she has challenged us to write it out-to use our own handwriting or drawing on a card!! Be sure to go around and check out all the other Prettie Girls creations-their links are in my sidebar!! Okay, sorry I didn't go into more detail, but I gotta run!! I have a couple of things that I haven't shared yet, so at least I know I have stuff to post the next couple of days!! I will try to keep you updated on her progress!! Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!!

P.S. I have had a few people ask for my sister's name so that they can pray for her. Her name is Mary and the new baby's name will be Jared. Thank you so much for including them in your prayers, and if you are interested in sending her a card, send me an email and I will get her address to you!! Thanks!!


  1. Great card, of course, Jessie. Keep me posted re: your sister and pre-eclampsia -- been there and done that twice! We have frequent flier status at the St. John's NICU... How far along is she? Also, congrats on the PP DT coord. and I thought your message about receivng the card from Amy S. was just the sweetest. She's awesome, isn't she?

  2. Oh how exciting Jessie!!! I will definitely keep Mary and Jared in prayer!! Keep us posted and do share her addy via e-mail if you feel comfortable with that as I'd love to send a little something!!! This card is so very Prettie!! I love the colors and the dp......amazing creation Jessie!!

  3. what a prettie card - ha ha. I love the big bow but it definitely couldn't fit in an envelope, huh? Keeping Mary/Jared in my prayers - how exciting to have a nephew after having nieces, huh?? He will surely be doted on.
