Prettie Wednesday

Two weeks ago, I issued a challenge to the Prettie Girls to get out their pastels and use them to color their image. I think they're all mad at me over that one! :) I have to admit that it WAS a challenge to color with pastels. . .especially after getting so used to my Copics! I used the Bunny Hop Sophia image for my card. Be sure and check out what the other Prettie Girls created for today! Julie Masse, Jana Weaver, Jessie Rone, Jillian Winters, Danielle Lounds, Jodi Collins, Jackie Rakoski, Jackie Pedro, Jessica Diedrich, Christi Thorsen, Frances Byrne

In other news, on January 25th Paper Pretties will be two years old!! I can't believe it's been that long!! It seems like yesterday that I was in on the "secret meetings" to launch their new line of stamps! :) In honor of our Anniversary, we are having a celebration!!! Here are the details: January 25th will mark Paper Pretties 2nd year in business and we want to celebrate in true Prettie style with a mystery, lots of prizes, a party, and a ton of inspiration for you! We'll be releasing a new stamp set, revealing the next Stamp of the Month a little bit early and re-releasing Sealed with a Kiss in RUBBAH!!!Be sure to join us for all the fun. Our blog hop will begin on Christie's blog on January 22nd (tomorrow) and the fun will continue for 3 whole days culminating in our party in the forum on the 25th at 8pm EST. We'll be announcing our grand prize winner of a 6 month Stamp of the Month subscription and giving away one of our new stamp sets to another lucky winner. We'll have prizes every 1/2 hour during the party BUT you have to be there to win! Also, everyone who orders on the 25th OR joins the Stamp of the Month club will receive a free roll of American Crafts ribbon!
