Prettie Wednesday

Two weeks ago, Danielle challenged us to make a shaker card. It's been a while since I've made a shaker, so this was a lot of fun for me. Remember this stamp set? This was one of the very first stamp sets Paper Pretties released. It's called Snowflake Kisses and it was my absolute favorite. . .that is, until all of the other Sophia stamps came out! LOL I just LOVE coloring this image. It's such a happy image. . .Sophia making a snowangel. Believe me, I'm not trying to rush in winter by any means, but a shaker card challenge inspired me to make a "snowy shaker". This is off to Julie.

Don't forget that this coming Monday, September 1st at 8pm EST is the next Prettie Pajama Party! Remember Cowgirl Sophia? Well, you can purchase her then! I have 3 challenges for you to play along with and we have prizes and lots of fun chatting. Also, the 31st is the last day to submit your work for our Cutie Pie contest!!! Just upload your cards to the Cutie Pie Submissions gallery before 9pm EST on August 31st to be considered. Not only do you get the title of Cutie Pie, you also get a gift certificate to the store!! Finally, don't forget that the 31st is also the last day to sign up for the Stamp of the Month Club to get the Falling For You set a month before it is released to the public. Thanks for stopping by and I hope to see you Monday night! SUPPLIES USED: Stamps- Snowflake Kisses (Paper Pretties); Paper- acetate, Luxury Stack (DCWV), white (Georgia-Pacific) Soft Sky (SU); Ink- Onyx Black (Versafine); Accessories- Copic markers, oval punch (SU), Plain and Scallop Oval Nestabilities (Spellbinders), embossing border punch (Fiskars), Dew Drops (The Robin's Nest), Dazzling Diamonds glitter (SU); Finished card measures 4.25"x5.5"
