Prettie Wednesday-Monochromatic

So, here lately, especially since I made a permanent picture area, I haven't been all that good about cleaning up my work space(if anyone has seen the lid to my aqua painter, could you let me know). I used to have to clean between every card that I made, but got a second ott light, and since then, I have been stamping in a 6x6 space with junk piled up around me!! I finally cleaned it up this morning but I made this card last night before I did.....why am I telling you this?? Well, I used the stuff that was still out on my desk to make it!!
This is Angel Wings Sophia, and she is next months Stamp of the Month over at Paper Pretties. You have until September 30th at midnight to get signed up for the Paper Pretties Stamp of The Month Club. In my opinion, this is the BEST way to get your collection of Pretties started if you haven't already!! Also, we are going to be having our monthly Stamping in Your Jammies party on October 1st at 7pmCST. There will be the usual challenges every hour, friendly chatter, and loads of fun. We sure hope you will join us and play along!! ALSO, this months Cutie Pie contest has started, and you have until the 30th of September to enter it too. Just upload your creation to the Paper Pretties gallery under Cutie Pie submissions to be entered!!

Anyway, LOL, I used an aqua painter and re inker to color my Sophia in for today. Two weeks ago, Jana, challenged us to do a monochromatic card, so since it was still out, I used Kiwi Kiss for mine. The top panel was run through my Cuttlebug with the textile folder and the bottom is some Bella Rose DSP. I added some ribbon, brads, spiral clips, you know....and it was done! This card is on it's way today to Charmaine, I sure hope she loves it. Be sure to play along, and if you do, leave us a link because we would love to see it!! This weeks challenger is Danielle, and I can't wait to see what she has in store for us! Be sure to blurf around and see what the other Pretties have cooked up!! Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!!

An Upsy Daisy Sketch

So, I was up late working on my nephew's birth announcements, and I saw that the sketch challenge was posted.....yes, I was stalking it, in fact I was the first person to comment, sad but true. I decided that I would go ahead and try to play tonight, since tomorrow is Prettie Wednesday, and I LOVE my card for it( I will post it in the morning)!! I used my new Upsy Daisy set along with my Washington Apple DSP. The sentiment is from the SU Hostess set, Best Yet. I stamped the daisies in Riding Hood Red. There was a lot of piercing, silver brads, and three different ribbons, and it was pretty much done. This was a super simple card, and I don't know that I am thrilled with it, but I love the paper, the colors, and all the brads, so I am sure by morning I will love the card too. Now, I SERIOUSLY need to get to bed!! Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!!
