Some More Birthday RAK's

Here are some more of the fabulous RAK's that I received for my birthday!! This first one came from one of the Paper Pretties guest designers, Stephanie Hargis. Stephanie is one of the SWEETEST people I have ever met and super talented to boot!! Thanks Stephanie for the fabulous birthday wishes!!
My next card came to me from my friend, and fellow DD member, Carole Burrage(trucarma). This card is flippin FANTASTIC!! I have always admired her way with color, she puts together some of the brightest colors ever, and makes them look good...she even taught me to love Sage Shadow!! Anyway, LOVE that image, love the sentiment, LOVE the bling!! She sent it to me not only to congratulate me on getting chosen for the Dirty Dozen, but also for my birthday!! Thanks Carole, I love it!

My third card came to me from my fellow Prettie Girl, Jackie Pedro(strappystamper). Jackie is one of my FAVORITE stampers!! She has such great style(would you look at all those layers, how could I NOT love her) and is just all around a great person! She also sent me a bunch of my favorite goodies; bling, pearls, and yep, you guessed it, SPIRAL CLIPS, WAHOOOOOO!!! Thank you so much Jackie, I love it, and all the goodies you sent!!

My last card came to me from my friend Silke Ledlow(sparklegirl). Silke is INSANELY talented and does amazing things with white space. I seriously envy her ability to make such clean and GORGEOUS cards. When looking at the gallery at SCS, I can have a page of 96 cards in front of me and be able to pick hers out straight away. Her style is so distinctive and BRILLIANT!! Thank you so much for the wonderful card and birthday wishes!!!

Prettie Tuesday

So, today, on top of the normal color challenge, I decided to challenge myself to use a Paper Pretties set that has rarely seen ink...out came my Sweets for the Sweet set. For this card, I used the SCS color challenge, Pink Pirouette, Chocolate Chip and Kiwi Kiss. I stamped my image on Whisper White with Black Stazon and used my reinkers, blender pens, SU markers, and a silver pen to color it in. The image was then cut out and layered using my nesties. I stamped the sentiment directly on the white layer and then ran it through the Cuttlebug. The DP is from the Bella Rose DSP and was layered with a piece of CC cardstock, on which I made scallops with my SU scallop punch. I added some pink gingham, chocolate grosgrain, and kiwi satin ribbon around the DP panel.
So, my computer was acting SILLY this morning, so I am just now getting this posted. So far, Jared is content in his jumperoo, but probably not for long...it's almost feeding time at the zoo!! Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!! I have a bunch of birthday RAK's to share soon!!!
