Time keeps on ticking, ticking, ticking...

German Phrase of the Day: Die Auffuehrung war sehr beeindruckend. = The performance was very impressive. I would love to go to a performance! I told my husband that for my birthday next year, I want to see the latest Cirque du Soleil performance in Vegas, The Beatles, Love. Not sure how we can work that with a baby in tow...but if there's a way I'll figure it out! ;-) Oh...and do you all like my new countdown to the move? It's actually quite helpful for me to keep track!

Earlier this week I was trying to catch up on some challenges, and decided to combine the last 2 weeks of Prettie Challenges from the challenge forum hosted by Danielle. Last week she gave us this awesome sketch to use, and the week before she challenged us to use Pretty in Pink, Regal Rose, Creamy Caramel and Whisper White on a card. I think our little Howdy Gal looks great in pink, don't you agree? And don't forget the only way to get this li'l lady before September is to join the Stamp of the Month club over at Paper Pretties BEFORE July 31st!! Be sure to tell Christie I sent ya on over.

She's on Stamper's Select White and colored with my Prisma pencils, then I cut her out with my coluzzle and mounted her on a scalloped circle punched with my Marvy Giga punch. I put a regal rose dot in each bump for some added effect, and cuttlebugged the creamy caramel layer with my paisley folder. I stamped the lower circles with the Prettie stamp Sassy Circles, and punched the sentiment with my word window punch. It was lots of fun to put together!!

I know I said I'm taking weekends off until after we've moved and gotten settled in, but tomorrow I'll have a guest blogger - my daughter Julia! She created a gorgeous card with this Howdy Girlfriend set and can't wait to share it with everyone. So be sure and leave her lots of love tomorrow when she posts her card.
