Prettie Friday...and Jared's Birthday!!

Today is my day to post a Paper Pretties card. Since you know I love a good sketch challenge, I decided to do this weeks Prettie weekly challenge sketch. This weeks challenge can be found at the Paper Pretties Forum or click here. I decided to use my Liberty Sophia. I colored her in using my Copic markers, and then layered her with Bashful Blue and Real Red. I decided to use some Summer Picnic...I thought the Apples were kinda symbolic, kwim? My ribbons are both from SU, and the brads and clips are from Creative Express. The scallops at the bottom were done with my SU scalloped edge punch, and then I used a hole punch to make the holes. I used SU punches for the sentiment panel and did a ton of piercing!! If you are interested in playing along, be sure to check out the thread for more details.

For those of you that come here for Jared updates, today is his first birthday!! I cannot believe it!! It really feels like only yesterday that he made his entrance into the world and I thank God everyday for blessing us with him. I know I am a TAD attached to him, since I see him a TON, but seriously...I think I love him more than my stamps, lol!! This was a picture of him last night taking a bath before bedtime. I was playing with his hair while his mom took pictures...too funny!! I used to do this, and still do, with my nieces, but their hair is pretty long so you can't get a full on mohawk...hehe. He has his one year check up today, so we will try to get a full length picture of him while we are there...I can't wait to see how much he has grown!!

That is it for me today, thanks and have a great one!!
