I missed another one...

Ok, I'm officially REALLY not happy with my computer right now. For some reason, the wireless card in my desktop computer and the wireless router in my husband's office do not communicate very well. I am all about good communications, and in my household that is a requirement, so when things don't talk I'm not a happy camper. I can't live without consistent internet!!!

Ok, enough wingeing (I miss you Lisa!!!) and on to the cards. The night of the pj party I had my friends Michelle and Jane over to stamp with me (the other Bay Area Pretties couldn't make it...hopefully next time!) and we had a wonderful time chatting and stamping! I actually got all three cards done, and Julia even made a challenge card! The first challenge from Charmaine was to create a card with fall colors. For this challenge I used Howdy Girlfriend (instead of the obvious Falling for You because Julia was using that one!) I used some retired SU! DSP for the background, and colored her in using my prismacolors after stamping her with Brilliance black ink. I used my new GinaK OMS...although I have to say they aren't as odorless as the brand I was using in Germany...may have to do some exploring on that. Of course, could just be that I'm a little more sensitive to it right now! ;-)

Since I was working under a time constraint, I went with a super simple layout, and just used a little chocolate chip grosgrain and some copper cord to finish her off. Isn't she sweet??

Now, if you haven't been over to the Prettie Boutique since Monday evening, you'll want to go now! EVERYTHING in the Boutique is 40% off. That means, if it was already on sale, you get an ADDITIONAL 40% off the sale price too!! WOW!! Now that's what I call a sale! Even all the wonderfully amazing stamp sets are on sale, so you really best go see what's left...and fast!! Just be sure to use the coupon code Labor Day when you check out to get your discount.

Have a wonderful day everyone!

  4. The coloring on this card is just as pretty on screen as it is irl! I had so much fun at the Pretties Party... can not wait for the next one. I'm kinda glad the internet didn't work out. I got to spend more time chatting with you and Michelle! lol! Thanks for the fun!

  5. I hate that you're 3 hours away, I say we all meet in the middle and go to Joni's house next month. See, we can invite ourselves to her place too!!! LOL xoxo
