Prettie Wednesday, a day late!

Sorry folks that I'm so late! My computer was NOT behaving yesterday, so finally last night my husband moved it into the office closer to the wireless router - now it seems to work a little better! So, I'm just now uploading the card that I did manage to get made yesterday while Julia was at kindergarten - woohoo!!

Jules challenged us all 2 weeks ago to make a shaped card, but it couldn't be square, or circular, or some regular shape. If you haven't seen the beautiful creations of all the other Prettie Girls you need to check them out, because they are all much more creative than me! I just cheated and made a card with my new Big Shot and the SU! Top Note die. I placed the fold of my Pacific Point cardstock so that I could create a folding card. Then, I diecut a piece of Stamper's Select White (finally cleared the pile from my desk and found that!) and cut it out around the perforrated line. I stamped this wonderful little surfing Snowflake and colored him in with my prismacolors. Lastly, I added the felt flowers because they seemed Hawaii-ish and the colors matched pretty well.

For the sentiment, I gently curved the acrylic before placing it on my block so it would curve around the wave some - cool, huh???

I hope you all are having a wonderful day, and I hope to be back tomorrow with another project I created yesterday. :-)
