Howdy Folks!

German Phrase of the Day: Hast du einen gruenen Rock? = Do you have a green skirt? You don't see the "ck" spelling in German very often, so it surprised me to see this is how you spell this word. It is pronounced just like it looks in English even!

How do you like our newest little Lady here? Isn't she just the cutest eveh?!? I was so excited the first time I saw her, and couldn't wait to get my hands on her. Of course, you all have probably seen her on all the other Prettie Girl blogs, but things take a little longer to get here to Deutschland, ya know?? Anyway, I used Julee's Mojo Monday #45 sketch for this card (although I did have to move the brads around a bit to fit better.) I used my retired SU! Outlaw paper, and my corner rounder to scallop the bottom (can't WAIT to get the new SU! scallop edge punch, come on August 9...hurry up and get here!) I did lots of sponging on this one, and colored her outfit to match the colors of the paper using an aquapainter and my ink pads. She is just TONS of fun to color...and the greeting that comes with her is so perfect. If you haven't signed up for the Stamp of the Month Club gotta to get this little sweetie before September! And when you go sign up, be sure to tell Christie I sent ya!!

Speaking of Paper Pretties, did you see the awesome product review Julie did of the Making Memories Ribbon Slides? And did you know that all the ribbon slides, and ric rac is on sale for 25% off throughout the entire month of July??? How cool is that?!? I know I'll be stocking up!!

Hope you all have a wonderful day, and I'll be back tomorrow with a fun project I did for a friend!
