Okay I know...

I am totally in love with this stamp, but seriously, it is so super cute!! I saw one of the other Prettie Girls use Coopers sentiment with her and I LOVE IT!! Now THIS is totally me in the morning!!LOL!! I made this card using the sketch challenge on SCS, but I had to flip it on its end. I don't normally do that, but I really wanted to use this Bunny Slippers Sophia image I had colored last night. I just love purple!! My color combo is a new one on me, but I kinda like it. It is Lovely Lilac, So Saffron and Chocolate Chip, which just goes to show, you can make anything look good when you pair it with good old Chocolate Chip. LOL!! I added some brown American Crafts brads and some more polka dotted ribbon from Jody's share, and it was done!!(and not a spiral clip in sight, yep I am totally patting myself on the back) I had a ton of card stock left from the shoebox swap I went to this weekend, so be prepared to see lots of white Swiss dots around here!! Thanks for stopping by again, and I will see you all around!! Have a great day!!

Man, what a PARTY last night over at Paper Pretties!! We are so excited, we actually crashed the server!! How awesome is that!!! LOL!! There were a ton of new faces and we are so happy that all of you took the time to join us? So, what did you all order, I am dying to know!! LOL!! Also, a big congrats to Lisa Helmts who won our Cutie Pie contest!! WOOHOO!! You go girl!! her card is on the front page of the Paper Pretties site so go check it out!!
Two weeks ago Danielle challenged all the Prettie Girls to make a card using circles. Thank goodness, because her last challenge was a masculine card and it almost killed us all!! I chose to use this months Stamp Of The Month Club set Bunny Slippers. If you didn’t get signed up before the first she won’t be available to the public until August. Trust me, if you haven’t signed up, you totally want to, next months stamp will be featured on my blog this week and it is too stinkin’ cute!! What I love about Christies SOTMC is that fact that you get your stamps before they are released, so anyone can feel like a part of the design team(so if you are curious what it feels like, this is a super awesome way to feel that!!). Anyway, back to my card. I colored my Bunny Slippers Sophia with my SU markers and aqua painter. I then cut her out using my circle Nesties and layered her with Close To Cocoa and Pretty In Pink. The DP has circles on it(right??) and is from the SU Berry Bliss pack. I then tied some YUMMY ribbon I got from a share with Jody Morrow. The sentiment is from the Paper Pretties set, One of Those Days, and I thought it would work perfect with Sophia. It was cut out with my key tag punch from SU and then layered on circles. This card is already on its way to Joni!! I am so proud I got it mailed out before Wed.!! LOL!! Next weeks challenge will be Christie schallenge to use green and white on a card. Julie is this weeks challenger, and I can’t WAIT to see what she has cooked up for us!! Be sure to blurf around and see what the other Prettie Girls(listed in my sidebar) have for you to look at, and if you wanna play along just leave me a link to your card!!! Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!!
