365 Cards - Day 88

We've had a fun, fun week over at 365 Cards!  All week long Pam has had "prompt words" or themes to get us started on our cardmaking mojo!  Our sponsor this week has been Sparkle Creations.  Love these images, so excited to finally get a chance to play with them!


For today, Day 88, the prompt word is...


BREEZY


How fun!  Here's my "breezy" creation, featuring Cruisin' Chloe.  I want that car AND that outfit!  Too fabulous.  Summer, hurry up and get here because I am READY!




Thanks for stopping by today, I hope you have a fabulous holiday weekend and enjoy the break!  Don't forget to visit the 365 Cards blog to link up your BREEZY projects!

PWC155 - Happy Birthday!

Good morning friends!  Welcome to your Wednesday.  :)  Yep, I'm alive.  Sorry I haven't been blogging.  My mom was visiting and I took the last week off to spend time with her.  She only stayed for 6 days and now she's back home so I'm back to spending evenings in my stamp room!  So, are you ready for the Prettie Wednesday Challenge?! I bet you are!  If you play along with us you could WIN!   Check out the Paper Pretties Blog for all the details!


For this week's challenge (keyword: PWC155) it's birthday time!  To play along, just make a birthday card or project, and  link up on the Paper Pretties Blog to enter.  Here is my contribution using Celebrate Sophia.  I LOVE her!  




I used some new Basic Grey paper and fun, bright, summer colors for this one.  I think I'm going to add some glitter dots in the upper right of the main image, to give it some extra "oompf". 


Thanks for stopping by today!  Don't forget to head over to the Paper Pretties Blog for a full list of the day's eye candy and all the challenge (and PRIZE) details!  You link up THERE for your chance to win this week's prize!  Happy stamping everyone!

Prettie Preview - Handy Man!

This is my second post today - please scroll down for Day 67 of the 365 Cards Challenge! 

Welcome back this morning!  Hope everyone is off to a good start today.  It's FRIDAY!!!  :)

It's also about time for Paper Pretties' May release!  Yahoo!  We are releasing 5 sets, which will be available to purchase on May 11th.

Today I'm using stamps from the new set "Handy Man".   I feel like we're always lacking for good MAN sets, and this one slides right in to fit the bill in so many ways.  

Swing over to the Paper Pretties blog to see more inspiration today, and over the next few days!  We'll be featuring a new stamp set every day from now until release day, Wednesday.  Stamps will be released for sale at 7:00 AM CST (for those of you who like to do your shopping early), and we'll be celebrating with a blog hop.  

Here's my MANLY card:



TOO MUCH FUN!  I can't wait to get this one inky again.  Father's Day, here we come.


Thanks for stopping by today!  Tune in for more Prettie Previews, and our big release hop on Wednesday!  


365 Cards - Royal Wedding: Day 67

TGIF!!  I say that every week, but it's just so true every week!  Today at the 365 Cards Challenge our theme is the Royal Wedding.  Create a project inspired by the wedding!  It's Day 67.


Here's my project.  The stamps are from Paper Pretties, Sealed With A Kiss from the Luke & Lexi line.




So fun!  I love these two! Sorry my picture isn't the best, I used the Cuttelbug to emboss the background with a swirl pattern.  Up in the corner behind the flower are black plastic discs on stems, from the floral department.  Just for something "extra".  They didn't photograph real well though...backfire!  :)


Thanks for stopping by today!  Get into the mood for love & weddings, and I will see you linked up over at the 365 Cards Challenge!
