There's a leopard stalking Halloween...

Ok, is this not the cutest stamp? I have more cute ones to show you...but not yet. For now, we'll have to be happy with Whiskers, Paper Pretties' latest Sophia to be released. She's available on the Paper Pretties website NOW.

Since Julia is going to be a leopard for Halloween this year, I just had to dress Sophia up as one as well. Don't you love that leopard print paper? I had it in my stash and need to find some additional animal print papers to cover letters for Julia's Jungle themed bedroom. Don't worry, I'll show you those when I'm done!!

Back to the card, I knew the leopard print paper was too big to paper piece with, so I colored the spots on by hand with a black pencil after coloring and blending the rest of Sophia with my Prismacolor pencils and OMS. Didn't she turn out adorable?? I added a little black organdy ribbon to go with her bow, and punched the greeting out with my word window punch (thank goodness THAT didn't get lost in the move!)

It is a nice and simple layout, but I like those...especially when you have such a fun image to work with! October 1st is coming up fast, and us Prettie Girls like to party on the first of the month. October is no exception, and we'll be stamping in our Jammies on Wednesday night from 8-11pm Eastern time (that's 5 to 8 for us West coasters!) in the Paper Pretties Forum. We'll have wonderful challenges along with prizes, and tons of fun! And this computer is hardwired so I should be here typing as fast as my fingers can go that evening! :-) Oh yeah...and right now Christie has a sale in the boutique - 50% off all designer paper, just use the coupon code "dp" when you check out! How cool is that?!?! Have fun shopping!
