Some MORE RAK's!!

Wow mailbox runneth over!! I have received some of the most amazing birthday RAK's EVER this week and I want to thank each and everyone of you for your generosity!!
My first card comes from Mercy Kerin(mkstampin74), she is super sweet and so talented!! I am on the Great Swaps Girls. She also leaves me the sweetest comments on my cards at SCS. Thanks Mercy, I love it!!

My next card was sent to me by Nancy Riley(stampinat6213)...WHOA!! My jaw hit the floor when I saw this gorgeous card she had sent to me!! Thank you so much Nancy, I love it!!

This card was sent to me by my friend, and fellow Prettie Girl, Julie Masse(jmasse). Jules and I have gotten to know each other through Paper Pretties and I am SO happy to have met her. I have to admit, I am a tad bit jealous, seeing as she is on the Stamping Cruise, but this card made me feel a little better......acccckkk who am I kidding...I SO wish I was there!! Thanks Jules, I love it!!

My final card and super awesome bunch of goodies was sent to me by my friend Lee(luvlee). Lee is such a sweet person, and always leaves the best comments both here and on SCS. She is constantly showering someone with love and even sent a present for my nephew!! How cool is that??!! Thanks so much Lee, I love my card...that image is TOO CUTE!!


So little old computer challenged me FINALLY fixed my laptop!!!!! YAYYYY!! I gotta tell you, having computer trouble or car trouble can just about drive you to drinking!! I hate it when something happens to either one, cause lets face it girls, when it comes to mechanical things, I SUCK!! However, if you needed a nice spiral clip or brad or maybe even a bow added to it, I am your girl!!LOL!!
So, Prettie Wednesday is back on!!LOL!! Two weeks ago I challenged the Prettie Girls to make a card that SPARKLED!! I wanted glitter and lots of it!! For my card, which is on it's way to Jules(tomorrow I promise) who is away on the cruise...lucky girl!! I stamped my Trim The Tree Sophia on watercolor paper with Black Stazon and colored her in with my SU markers. She was then cut out with my Oval Nestabilities and layered with Not Quite Navy and Whisper White. The GORGEOUS, and oh so SHIMMERY paper is from Heidi Grace...YUMMMM. I added some ribbon from Pink Hedgehog Paper Crafts and tied it in a bow. The flowers are from Michael's and are layered two together then a NQN brad was placed in the middle of them. Her dress belt and ornament are covered with silver gel pen and the whole image is coated with Perfect Pearls. Hopefully, you can see it cause we all know sparkle is hard to capture in a photograph!! This weeks challenger is Jackie Pedro, her first time as challenger, how exciting!! Now on to the real business....wanna know how you can get this stamp before it is released to the public....I thought you would!! Go to Paper Pretties and sign up for the Stamp of the Month club. By signing up, you will be eligible to receive this stamp a month before it is actually released in December. Make sure to tell them I sent you though!!

If you want to play along, and we SOOO wish you would, make your card and leave a link on one of the Prettie Girls blogs so that we can see it!! Speaking of Prettie Girls, be sure to check out what they have in store for you!! Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!!

We Are Experiencing Technical Difficulties....

So, my new laptop has decided that it doesn't want to work....nice huh?NOT!! So, Prettie Wednesday has been postponed until tonight when I get home and either fix my computer, return my computer, or throw it in the back yard and stomp on it until it is in tiny pieces.

to be continued....
