Pretties Wednesday: Chalking it up to Fate...


Hello Prettie People :)

It's been a crazy start to the week already, hasn't it? Or is it just me? After a five day weekend, it was hard to get up for school yesterday...even though actually a few stayed home because of this darn cold... even still, it was time to get up early again and I swear, some days if it weren't for my coffee...I couldn't function LOL! You all hear me, right?

Speaking of which, I chose to use the super cute Look Who's Perky set from Paper Pretties for today's challenge. A few weeks ago, Charmaine issued a challenge to the Prettie Girls to use pastels/chalks to color our cards instead of those favorite markers we've become accustomed to. Now, I have to admit, my chalks are on their last leg...but I do love my Shimmer Chalks and it was fun to use them again!

I followed the sketch for the latest VLVJan03 Challenge and it really worked out well for this super cute Coffee pot, sugar bowl and mug. I colored them pink and made them my own with my chalks and I really like the BG Infuse paper I used in the background. Thanks Charmaine for a GREAT challenge! Be sure to check out what the other Prettie Girls chalked up for this challenge!

I have a LOT of Prettie News this week...Paper Pretties is turning TWO! We are going to be celebrating in proper Prettie style...so here are some of the details for the upcoming celebration:

January 25th will mark Paper Pretties 2nd year in business and we want to celebrate in true Prettie style with a mystery, lots of prizes, a party, and a ton of inspiration for you! We'll be releasing a BRAND NEW stamp set, revealing the next Stamp of the Month a little bit early and also re-releasing Sealed with a Kiss in RUBBAH!!!

Be sure to join us for all the fun. Our blog hop will begin on my blog on January 22nd and the fun will continue for 3 whole days culminating in our party in the forum on the 25th at 8pm EST.

We'll be announcing our grand prize winner of a 6 month Stamp of the Month subscription and giving away one of our new stamp sets to another lucky winner.

We'll have prizes every 1/2 hour during the party BUT you have to be there to win! Also, everyone who orders on the 25th OR joins the Stamp of the Month club will receive a free roll of American Crafts ribbon!

See ya on the 25th, and I'll be back here long before then with some other Prettie things to ponder... ;)

Hugs,
Jessica :)
