German Phrase of the Day: Wir bald gehen auf eine Reise. = We are going on a trip soon. I very big, long trip! I can't believe we have less than 10 days left in Deutschland! I still have too much to do!
Here is the first of my Prettie Peeks, and it also happens to be the card I created my sketch from for the Sketch Challenge I issued to the other Prettie Girls 2 weeks ago (did you play too? Please link up your creations here, I'd LOVE to see them!!) I absolutely fell in love with this little turtle. You know...Christie previewed him without anyone noticing a couple months ago in response to my challenge to make a baby card using Prettie stamps. Of course, none of us even asked where the little cutie came from! He's SOO fun to color with my prismas, and has just the cutest little turtle face ever! Wait until you see the OTHER card I made with him...you'll have to wait until next week for that.
I have my turtles all lined up in a row (unlike my ducks which are still scattered all over the place!) and peeking out of the circles I punched in the Take with Teal cardstock. Don't they look like they are all waiting at the starting line to take off? I then popped that layer up on top of my certainly celery layer. For the greeting, I pulled that from ANOTHER new Paper Pretties set being launched on Friday night because I thought it worked well with these little guys. I love the layers I did here...I just happened to have those Taken With Teal circles on my desk and one got mixed up between the ovals and I thought...gee...that actually looks cool!
For my ribbon, I put the ribbon around and tied the bow separately to stick on with a glue dot. You don't think I could actually have tied it on there and had it turn out this pretty, do you??
Don't forget to send your submissions to Christie@paperpretties.net for the Cutie Pie contest...you have until 8pm CST on July 31st (that's TOMORROW!) to get them in!! I can't wait to see the beauty that will win this months releases! And, be sure to party with the Prettie Girls in your PJ's on Friday night. There will be stamping, prizes, and lots of fun chatter! I probably won't make it this time, unless my nightly trip to the bathroom happens to fall in the right time period...then I might pop in to say a quick Hi before going back to bed. But NEXT month, I'll be there for the WHOLE party!! WOOHOO!!!
