Prettie Wednesday

Two weeks ago, Jessie challenged us to use pearls on a project. I think pearls look so elegant and I love them with organdy ribbon or the like. I decided to put my pearl in the center of a bow. I used the Simply Special set from Paper Pretties. This card is on its way to Jodi. Be sure and check out what the other Pretties Girls came up with for this challenge!

Don't forget about the Cutie Pie Contest!!How would you like to be Paper Pretties Cutie Pie? All you have to do is make a card using your Paper Pretties stamps and upload it to the Cutie Pie Contest gallery on the Paper Pretties forum, and Christie will choose a winner from the entries. Besides being able to call yourself a Cutie Pie, you will also win the entire release!! You have until November 30th at 8pmCDT to get your entries in!! Good luck!!

On Monday December 1st, Paper Pretties will be having their monthly Stampin In Your Jammies party!! The party starts at 6pm CDT (7pm EST). 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 Trim the Tree to the public as well as re-releasing Snowflake Kisses in rubber. Hope to see you there!! Don't forget that you have until November 30th at midnight to get signed up for the Stamp of the Month Club and get the Sending You Love Sophia stamp before it is officially released in January. Thanks for stopping by today and have a great day!

I think this card is simply stunning. I can't put my finger on a specific element, I think it's the whole thing - cute image, great coloring, those wonderful Labels One nesties, the pearl, the ribbon and the patterned paper - wonderful combination! Thanks for sharing!

Have a Happy Thanksgiving!

This is great. I LOVE pearls as well. I hope to someday own a pearl necklace (I really like the black pearls though). I don't even mind of the freshwater pearls.
I am using pearls on my Christmas cards as well.
Oh, how I would love to be a cutie pie but I don't yet own a pretties stamps, oh well. I guess I better go get me some so I can participate next time. TFS!!!
