A PRETTIE good feeling...and an even better Cause!


Hey everyone...it's PRETTIES Wednesday! I know I feel a little prettier just knowing that today! LOL. Actually, I'm feeling really good about this card I have for you today!

A few weeks ago, Jessie issued a Glitter Challenge to all the Prettie Girls. I got in on this JUST in time to play this week's challenge, which was to use glitter on a card. Isn't Sophia's dress fantabulous??? I love it! I also found these new flowers that are glittery white chipboard that can be sponged in any color which is pretty darn nifty, right? I also got to play this week's Mojo Monday sketch challenge when I made this card which is always something I look forward to!

I used the Cuddle Me Sophia to make this card. She's just the sweetest little thing! In addition, I found a sentiment that would work for someone battling a rough time, which brings me to the next part of my post:

The Prettie Girls decided to get in on this FANTASTIC cause through SplitCoast Stampers this week. We are all sending our cards to SCS and they will go directly to the Chemo Angels organization, which will allow the sending of hundreds, hopefully THOUSANDS of cards to cancer patients. Isn't that the greatest? You can read ALL the details of the cause HERE.

I decided in honor of October being Breast Cancer awareness month that I'd make my card pink and use the tranditional symbol of the pink ribbon right on it. I really like the way it turned out and if I can scrounge up some time I think I will make a pack of 10 or so and head over to my local hospital with them. I encourage you all to do the same! I will let you know if I end up doing it, and please let me know if you'd like to challenge yourself and do the same thing for an organization near you!!!

In addition to all the wonderful happenings this week at Paper Pretties, Christie has a HUGE sale going on, also in honor of October being Breast Cancer Awareness month! EVERYTHING PINK is 40% off through the end of the month! Be sure to take advantage of this amazing sale before it ends...it's an awesome one!

Thanks so much for stopping by today, and be sure to check out what the other Prettie Girls have created for this awesome challenge!
