I couldn’t wait for this day to get here to FINALLY get to introduce you to the new Guest Designers for Paper Pretties. Christie and I are so proud of this group of girls and can’t wait to spend the next three months getting to know them and seeing what they can do. Wanna know who they are? I thought you would!! Starting today, our new Guest Designers are Carolina Buchting, Kirsten Dubosque, and Donna Baker. We also would like to welcome back Jackie Rakoski for another term as guest designer. Be sure to go check out there blogs to see what they have cooked up for Tuesday nights release and to congratulate them!! Also, on the Paper Pretties homepage you can find them in our guest room, so be sure to go read all about them!! Don’t forget: Paper Pretties is having a release party on Tuesday night in the Paper Pretties forum at 7pm CST. Charmaine will be posting a challenge every hour and you could win some great prizes. Also, we know you have bought them, why not use them to win free stamps?? That’s right I am talking about our Cutie Pie contest. You have until Monday night at 8pmCST to enter the contest. Just email a picture of your entries to The winner will receive all of this months releases for free, which includes this super cute stamp I used today. This stamp is called Off to School Sophia and it was the first of the Stamp of the Month club stamps. Be sure to sign up for the SOTMC at Paper Pretties too. You get your stamp a MONTH before it releases to the public. The July release is Bunny Slippers Sophia and she is TOO CUTE!! You have until 11:59 Monday night to sign up to get this super cute stamp before it releases(which won’t be until August so you better RUN NOW!!). Be sure to tell them that I sent you by either putting my blog or my name in the “where did you hear about us” line!!
Anyway, back to the card. I used my Off to School Sophia and stamped her with Black Stazon on watercolor paper. I colored her with my aqua painter and SU markers. I made this card as part of the Featured Stamper challenge over on SCS. This weeks featured stamper is Michele(chelemom) and she has a fantastic galleryand blog. I chose this cardof hers to CASE and only added a couple of brads to the bottom, I am so proud of myself!!LOL!! Be sure to stay tuned for more Prettie Peaks, and be sure to check out all the other Pretties blogs and our new designers!! Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!!
