Before I get into the normal business, Paper Pretties has a TON going on this week. Here are all the details!!

On Sunday March 1st, Paper Pretties will be having their monthly Stampin In Your Jammies party!! The party starts at 6pm CDT and will last until 9pm. We will be issuing a challenge every hour so be sure to come and play along!! Besides the challenges, chatter, and all around fun, we will also be releasing Bunny Hop Sopia to the public as well as a new stamp set!! Sneak peeks start on Friday, February 27th!! Hope to see you there!!

Cutie Pie Contest:

Paper Pretties is having a release on the March 1st so that means it is time for another CUTIE PIE CONTEST!!! All you have to do to enter is upload a card you have made using Paper Pretties stamps to the Cutie Pie Contest gallery over at the Paper Pretties website. Entries must be in by no later than 8pmCST on February 28th to be considered for the prize. Besides getting to call yourself a CutiePie, you will also receive all the new stamps that are released on the 1st!! Good luck!!

So, two weeks ago, my former friend Jodi(yep, I said former..anyone who loves me would NOT pose this challenge-TOTALLY KIDDING), challenged the Prettie Girl's to make a card using the Rule of One's. One layer, one image, one embellishment, one sentiment.......EGADDDDDSSSS!!! Now, before you get all freaked out, no, I still luv Jodi, I just am not a one kinda girl...I am more of a 10 or 15 kinda girl!! LOL!! So, anyway, after I was done whineing about it, I decided to use my Gliding By Sophia since she is such a large and GORGEOUS image. I stamped her with Memento Tuxedo Black on Gina K. 120lb white and then embossed a frame around her with my Rectangle Nestabilities and Cuttlebug. I colored her with Copics, added some stickles(which I am TOTALLY counting as a coloring tool) to her trail, and the tied a big silverbow at the top. I promise you, in real life the sentiment is NOT crooked, but for some reason every picture I took of this card LOOKS crooked...grrr. Well, that is it for me for now...have a great day!! Don't forget to go see what the other girls have created for this lovely challenge!!
