Scroll down two posts for my There She Goes Blog Hop post!! After you look at this one of course, LOL!!

On Wednesday, April 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 Sophia Ballerina, Sweets for the Sweet in Rubber, Bunny Slippers in Rubber, and a new set!! Sneak peeks start on Monday, March 30th!! Hope to see you there!!
Also, it is time for another Cutie Pie contest!! You have until Tuesday, March 31st at 8pmCDT to get your entries uploaded to the Cutie Pie gallery at the Paper Pretties website to be considered for the prize-all the new releases!! Good Luck!!
For my peek today, (well, not so much a peek, but DEFINITELY a GORGEOUS stamp FINALLY being released to the public) I used last month's Stamp of the Month-Sophia Ballerina. I stamped her with Memento Tuxedo Black on Gina K. White and colored her in with my Copics. I paired her with some yummy Pink Flamingo DSP from SU. The ribbons are both from SU, as well as the brads. I did a lot of piercing, and used my SU scalloped edge punch for the center strip. I think I was channeling my inner Jodi for this card, she is such an inspiration to me!!
That is it for me now, thanks for stopping by!!

Little Paper Shop Monday Challenge

Scroll down one post for my There She Goes Blog Hop post!!

Every Monday on the Little Paper Shop blog there is a challenge posted. I have a bunch of LPS stamps and I have ALL the digital images, so I like to use this challenge to use them!! GO me!hehe!! Anywho, for today's card, I used this weeks challenge, which was a color challenge(LPSC09). The challenge was to use Riding Hood Red, Kraft and Chocolate Chip. I used my Katie Swing digital image and colored her in with Copics. The DP is from the Slumber Party DSP from SU(thanks Officer Jacque!!). I used both the Bouquet and Latte Buttons from SU, all of which have some linen thread put through them. The ribbons are both SU, but the spiral clip is from Creative Express. My sentiment was stamped directly on the DP with Memento Rich Cocoa. The sentiment is from the LPS set, Bound By the Heart. I love this set because you can fill in the blank with whoever you are giving it too(ie. Mom, Dad, Mother, Father...).

Well that is it for me now!! More to come later!!!

The Final Day!!

My blog is gonna be pretty busy today, so be sure to keep checking back for posts!!(There should be 4, yikes, I know-I promise not to make a habit of it, but it's release time baby!!!)

Today is the final day of the There She Goes pre-release blog hops!! Today's hop started at Jessica's blog again, and after you get done here, you need to go to Joanne's blog to continue on the hop. Three new sets are being released on April 1st, and they are SO CUTE!! Want a chance to win one of the new sets? I thought so!! Just be sure to comment on all the Trendsetters blogs and then go back to Jessica's blog and put your name in the Mr. Linky box provided!!
Today's peek is of the new set, Tastes Like is HYSTERICAL!! Maybe it is the country/small town girl in me that can really appreciate this set, but man I LOVE it!! When I saw this image, I started crackin up. For those of you that have never been in a rural area, I have seen toilets as planters, tires, and actual bed frames sticking up out of the ground...people are nuts, what can I say. I decided to use the toilet image for that very reason! I stamped the toilet on Gina K. White with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored it in with my Copic markers. The image was then cut and embossed with my Cuttlebug and Circle nesties. I then layered it with Kiwi Kiss, Baja Breeze, and Pretty in Pink. The color combo was this past week's SCS color challenge hosted by my pal, and fellow Trendsetter, Jodi- blame her!! For the base and center panel, I used some Walk in The Park DSP-seriously YUUMMMMYYYY!! The white brads are from American Crafts and the ribbon is from SU. I punched my sentiment out with my Scalloped Oval punch and large oval punch. The sketch is actually from this week's Featured Stamper, JustPaintingAround...super talented chick!!
Well, that is it for me for I said before, lots goin' on 'round here today, ya know!!hehe
