Happy Prettie Monday!

Hi everyone. Man...does the week just fly by for everyone these days? Seems like I just put up my Wednesday post and already it's Sunday night!!! Phil and Julia are off skiing today, so Jack and I have had fun just the 2 of us. We decided to have a Harry Potter marathon, and he's enjoying his first look at the movies, having endured my reading the books last month during nursing sessions! He's quite a fan don't you know?!

Today's card uses the sketch from LAST week's Prettie Challenge issued by Danielle. I love her challenges, and this week she's got another Mystery Color challenge for us all, to use Regal Rose, So Saffron and a third color of our own choosing on a card. Hmmm...think I'll have to try that one! Be sure to upload your challenge cards to the Prettie's Gallery so we can ALL see them, and you can get a chance to win a $5 coupon to the Pretties Boutique!
I used some new Basic Gray Marakesh papers, and let them determine the colors. I was so happy to discover how beautifully SU!'s Pacific Point goes with this paper. And even the Baja Breeze ribbon worked well. Gorgeous, no?

I'm very in love with the new corduroy buttons also...aren't the fabulous?? But of course, nothing compares to our lovely Hola Chica!! She will be the April Stamp of the Month, so be sure to sign up before the 31st to ensure you get her before everyone else - you can make some Cinco de Mayo cards! I stamped her on Very Vanilla and colored her in with my SU! markers.

I hope you all have a wonderful week!
