Meet the NEW Sophia

Before I show you the NEWEST Sophia on the block, I wanted to let you know that TONIGHT is the night for the Paper Pretties release party!! Need more details? Well, here they are!!

So, are you ready for some Paper Pretties fun?? I sure am!! Here are all the details about this months release!!On Sunday March 1st, Paper Pretties will be having their monthly Stampin In Your Jammies party!! The party starts at 6pm CDT and will last until 9pm. We will be issuing a challenge every hour so be sure to come and play along!! Besides the challenges, chatter, and all around fun, we will also be releasing Bunny Hop Sophia to the public as well as a new stamp set!! Hope to see you there!!

I know that I should be promoting the new stamps being released today at Paper Pretties, but seriously, I am in LOVE with this SUPAH cute new Sophia. This is Hola Chica and she is the Stamp of the Month for April. If you didn't get signed up by midnight last night, you missed out on the chance to get Ballerina Sophia early, but that just means you have ALL month to get signed up for Hola Chica. yyayyyy!! Now seriously, isn't she adorable?? For my card, I used Danielle's Sketch from last week. Now, the deadline to enter the contest has already passed, but it is a SERIOUSLY awesome sketch, so I had to play along(that and I made this card last week, lol). I stamped my Hola Chica Sophia on Gina K. 120lb white, as well as some Pink Flamingo DSP from SU. I then paper pieced her dress and colored the rest of her with my Copic markers. The flowers were made with my SU Flower punch, and I added some YUMMY jumbo brads to their centers. All the DP is from the Pink Flamingo DSP, and the white brads are from Doodlebug. I added some Tempting Turquoise grosgrain ribbon to my spiral clip, and some white grosgrain that I colored with my Cameo Coral marker. The white ribbon is some that I got from my pal Julie. See I told you, CUTTTTTEEE!!
Okay, I am off to play in the Featured Stamper challenge...see you soon!!


I love Saturday night/Sunday morning. It is so fun to wait up and see who gets the featured stamper on Sunday. When it is someone I know, it is like I was chosen along with them, and when it is someone I don't makes me happy to get to see a new gallery. This week's FS was actually someone I was not as familiar with as others, but I do know who she is, and I now know that she has a fabulous and FULL gallery!! Lots of yummy cards and layouts to chose from, which makes me a happy girl. I was WAY to tired to stamp last night, so I decided to stamp today....and I just NOW finally got a chance to play. I chose this card of Kelly's to CASE. I changed the image, colors, paper, and embellishments. I also added a few layers....I just love layers. The main image is from the SU Ever After set and the DP and all the accessories are also from SU. In fact....this is an SU only card, SCORE!! I used my SU reinkers and a blender pen to color my main image. The DP is from the Bella Rose DSP. All my embellishments are from SU-both the Bouquet and Latte Buttons and the ribbon from the Dress Up Ribbon Originals. I used small strips of paper to thread through my button holes. Well, that is it for me now, I need to get back to my stamp table...or something, LOL!! Thanks for looking, have a great day!!
