Do You Wanna Know....

what I have been working on!!! I keep saying how busy I am, and I have a list as long as my are right now of projects and things that I have to get done, and this was one of them!!! Yay, I can check something off my list!! My cousin-in-law Brandi is getting married this weekend and she asked me(on Sunday evening) if I would be willing to make some table numbers and reserved signs. I will go ahead and admit that I love Brilliant Blue, but these are kinda pretty!!! Thanks for looking and have a great day!!

I Am Blessed

I have recieved a few RAK's in the mail recently that I wanted to share!! The first is from Billie Rillo, the second is from Christie over at Paper Pretties, and the last one is from Debbie(dbdoodle). She also wrote the most beautiful note and she sent me a present to encourage me in my journey to become a mom! Aren't I lucky!!

Great Swaps Girls Challenges

Recently I was asked by Becky(beccabatgirl) to join a wonderful group of ladies called the Great Swaps Girls. If you click on the little badge in my sidebar it will take you to our new blog which I am helping run with a wonderful team of women!!! On Mondays we will be posting challenges of all kinds and on Wednesdays we will have a featured swapper where you will get a chance to CASE some of their fabulous work. You are more than welcome to join in our challenges, all you have to do is go to the blog, find out what it is, make your card, and post a comment with a link to your card to the challenge!! This weeks challenge was a color challenge to use Regal Rose, Certainly Celery, and So Saffron. I decided to combine it with the SCS sketch challenge. My card base is RR and it is layered with CC and then Whisper White that has been run through my Cuttlebug with the Swiss Dots folder. The next layer is SS CS and DSP. The main image is from the SU set Garden Whimsy and I used my markers to color it. I then put some glitter and crystal effects on the bloom. The rest is pretty easy to figure out!! Be sure to check out the GSG blog and meet this week's featured swapper Jackie Pedro(strappystamper)!!

Prettie Wednesday!!!

Yayyyy!!! This is my first official Wednesday as a Prettie Girl and I couldn't be more excited!!! Actually last week was, but Jillian had challenged us to take the week off, so I didn't have to do anything for it!! Two weeks ago, Jana challenged us to make a card with polka dots, which I love!!! Sorry Christie, I know this hasn't got to you yet, but look what you have to look forward too!! I created the background by stamping the polka dots from Sassy Circles on Pretty in Pink with Regal Rose ink. The polka dots on the dress were hand drawn in, which is about as much as I can draw!! The panel under the main image is a piece of Whisper White which has been embossed with my Swiss Dots folder and then I wrapped a piece of Rose wide grosgrain and pink taffeta around it. My main image is Flutter By by Paper Pretties, isn't Sophia adorable!! What I love the most about these stamps is that you can make the hair color any color you want along with the dress, so you can make it look like the special little girl in your life!! I colored her with my SU markers and aquapainter. I put white brads that I got from the Prettie boutique in each corner and and added a little glitter to all of the jewlery. I need to run, but I will be back later with some more stuff!! Don't forget to stop by the other Prettie Girls blogs and see what they have been up to, and check out this weeks challenge by Danielle(they are all over there in my DT sidebar). Also, be sure to pick out the home page at Paper Pretties to see what all Christie and her amazing team have cooked up for all of us!!! Thanks for looking and have a great day!!
