Prettie Wednesday

Happy Wednesday!! Two weeks ago, Jules challenged the Prettie Girls to find something that we were inspired by, a blog, a website, a catalog, a piece of art . . . anything! Then make a card using that inspiration piece. I chose this gorgeous bedding from the JCPenney’s website. I loved the colors and the flowers on it. I also decided to combine this with the sketch challenge Danielle posted in the Pretties Challenge forum last week. Anyone can play along, and we really hope that you do!!I started with my Simply Special set from Paper Prettiesand stamped the image on watercolor paper, colored it with my SU markers, and cut it out using my oval nestabilities. I coved the whole watering can image with some crystal effects to make it shiny. To mimic the walls in my inspiration piece, I ran the Ruby Red layer through my Cuttlebug with the Distressed Stripes folder. The SU ticket corner punch was used on the corners and then I put some pewter brads in the notches. The DP is from the Close to Cocoa SU pack and the ribbon is some that I got through a ribbon share with Jody(texasjodylynn).
Last week Charmaine challenged us to make a bookmark and we would love it if you played along, just make sure to leave us a link!! This week it's Jana's turn to challenge! This card is actually on it’s way over to Jana as we speak, but as per my usual, it’s gonna be late!! One week, I swear my card will reach the person before it is time to post it, ya right!!Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!!

Look Out World, Here I Come!!

Isn't that sentiment the cutest!! This is another set being released by Paper Pretties on Thursday night, and I am just in love with it!! It is called Look Out World and features this cute little guy and sentiment. I colored him in using my SU markers and ink pads and aqua painter. I stamped the oval below him using the Paper Pretties stamp set Sassy Circles. It is fabulous for grounding images! The sketch is from the SCS sketch challenge for tomorrow. Be sure to join us on Thursday night at our Prettie Pajama Party. Charmaine will be posting a challenge every hour for three hours in the Pajama Party Forum, starting at 8pmEST(7pmCST). It is a TON of fun, and a great chance to meet the other Prettie girls, and maybe win some free goodies!!
