Oh What A Night

So, as I said yesterday, I had a SUPAH hectic day! Not only was it the Paper Pretties Stampin In Your Jammies party, but it was also the MFT release party. I am sad to say that by the time I got home from my hair appointment(the ONLY appointment I could get before my BIL wedding on Nov. 1), I had a HUGE headache, and really didn't get to participate in either one. Never fear, I still have some goodies to show you though!! Before I get into my cards, I wanna give a HUGE shout-out to our new girls!! Joining us as a Jr. Design Team member is none other than the AMAZING Jackie Pedro!! When she showed up at her first party, we immediately made her a Guest Designer, and from there, well, we grew to LOVE her and wanted to keep her!! LOL!! I can't wait to see what she can do, and trust me when I say, it will all be fabulous! Also joining us as guest designers this term are Stephanie Hargis, Jenn Diaz, Christi Thorsen and Frances Byrne!! I am super excited about our guest designers this round, they are an amazingly talented group of ladies who I know will make me proud and totally ROCK these spots!! They are the perfect addition to our DT, and Christie and I couldn't be happier!! Sadly, we had to say goodbye to some of our current guests, Donna Baker, Carolina Buchting, and Kirsten Dubosque. I SOOOO enjoyed having them around and loved checking out their blogs to see what they had created!! Thanks for all you did girls, you went above and beyond and made us all so proud!!
Okay, enough gushing, on to the goodness, LOL!! Here is my card that I made for the first challenge, which was to try a technique you have never tried before. I decided to do the striped wipe technique that was posted on SCS the other day. It is SUPER easy, virtually mess free, and GORGEOUS!! Basically, you take a diaper wipe, fold it so it has a thicker edge, add drops of re-nker to the end of it in the colors you want, and then swipe it across your glossy card stock. Easy Peasy!! I used some Soft Sky, Baja Breeze, and Kiwi Kiss to make mine. I then stamped the tree from Soakin Up The Sun and colored it in. After it was colored, I cut it out and added it to my scene. The sand was made by tearing pieces of Sahara Sand cardstock. After adhering the top one, I placed my tree, and then adhered the bottom one so that the tree would look like it was coming up out of the sand. Isn't it so peaceful!! The sentiment was cut out with my word window punch(okay, it doesn't honestly fit, but I cut a long strip, stamped it, and then used the word window punch to round the edge) and the ribbon at the top is from SU. The DP is also some retired SU and the Baja Breeze layer was run through my Cuttlebug with the Swiss Dots folder. I have two other cards, but you will have to wait til next time for those...gotta keep you coming back, don't I!! Don't forget to check out Paper Pretties home page. Christie is having a 40% off Pink Sale in honor of Breast Cancer awareness month. If you purchase any of our PINK products and make a card with it for someone who has been touched by breast cancer in some way, send us a pic of your card at At the end of the month we'll be drawing a name for a prize! Be sure to include your name and mailing address along with who you are sending your card to (not a name, just their association to you), as well as a list of the products from the boutique that you used.
