Prettie Wednesday Chipboard Challenge

German Phrase of the Day: Morgan soll es schneien. = Tomorrow it is supposed to snow. Actually, it snowed here yesterday!! All winter long Julia has been waiting for snow, and now that it is finally spring, she gets it!! She was SOOO happy to go run around and play in the little dusting we got, it was wonderful to watch her uncontainable glee!

It's Prettie Wednesday did that happen? I guess time flies when you're never home! And, since I was running behind again as usual, I was able to combine today's sketch challenge with the challenge to use chipboard...and I even used supplies from the January Bella Kit! Talk about multitasking!! :-)

The precut cardstock for this kit worked perfectly for this week's sketch...I just had to trim a little here and there to make it fit. I had Sophia all ready to go, so I quickly colored her in with my aquqapainter and WWC, then added a little bling with my brand new Spica glitter pens to her beads and bracelets. Fortunately, this card came together quickly, so I'll be able to get it out in the mail right away! Sorry I'm running behind again ladies - one of these days I"ll catch up!

On the detailed photo you can see the shimmer from the Spica pens. I'm really liking these pens...but the color from them can get quite intense, so you have to be a little careful! You'll see what I mean when I post another card I just made! :-)

Have a wonderful "hump" day everyone...make sure it's Prettie by checking all the other Prettie Girl blogs (see list to the right) for their chipboard challenge cards as well!
