Pretties Wednesday: Krafty Color Challenge...

Hey Prettie People :)

How goes it today? I have another card to show you as today is Pretties Wednesday! Each week on Wednesdays, the Prettie Girls take turns issuing a DT challenge to each other. Well, this week, it was MY turn!
I'm so excited to flutter around blogland today to see what my Pretties came up with for today's challenge. I chose a Color Challenge: To use Kraft, Ocean Tides/Baja Breeze, Ripe Avocado/Old Olive, and Dark Chocolate/Choc. Chip. After throwing in some pretty DP from Stampin Up's SkiSlope line, I was happy with the way this came out.

I was also able to use the Viva La Verve sketch which was fun to try out. Great sketch and fun use of hardware and the layout was interesting. I like the way this came out and was glad I got to play! I love sketch challenges...AND color ones too!

For those of you who might not have heard, our SENDING YOU LOVE Sophia is NOW available in the Pretties Boutique! How cute is SHE? It was fun to use non-traditional Valentine's colors, and I will tell you that this stamp is NOT just for Valentine's! This card is actually going to DH, as today is our anniversary. Happy Anniversary, babes...this one is for you! I made a point to mention in the card, too that all of this wouldn't be possible without the daily support, surprise trips to the art supply store, the fact that he is on first name basis w/ the girls at Archiver's and knows what a "Tombow refill" is without having to ask...the fact that he submitted a card he made to the Mr. Stamper contest a few months back to try to win me a free stamp set from The Greeting Farm...and that is all just in the stamping arena. Anyway, I'll save the gushing for later, but wanted to send a shout out :)

Be sure to "hop"...or "flop" back here Friday (hint! hint!) I can't WAIT to show you the February stamp of the month!!! You will NOT want to miss this one!

Til then, won't you please stop by my fellow Prettie Girls' blogs today (links on my sidebar!) and show them some love for playing my Color challenge? Thanks! Can't wait to show you something special over the weekend too...stayyyyyyyy tuned! ;)
Jess :)

Happy Anniversary Jessica to you and your husband! I will open you a secret - today is my wedding anniversary too!
Your card for the challenge is so cute! I love the colors you chose for the challenge! And agree with you that this stamp is not only for Valentine!
Oh, Jessica! I also wanted to tell you that I have an award for you at my blog! Sorry if you already got it and I missed it. And I know that you are very busy, so if you will not have a time to response, I will understand you!

Heather said...

Wow Jessica,

Your use of color and elements never ceases to amaze me you have a very developed talent my girl!!!

Your cards are all so wonderful, and I love how you used the DSP and the stamp!!

I am so behind I am going to post a Card for Madelynn's twinkly Tuesdays soon, but I have had sick baby and he requires much more attention than trying to stamp will allow me!!!!

I am quickly becoming a Pretty Addict!!!


Julie Masse said...

Oh your card is so sweet!! The colors were that bad at all - they actually are very pretty together!!! :)

Danielle Lounds said...

Ah so sweet! Love all of the fun patterned papers you used!

Heather said...

Hey Jessica it is me again. Well instead of stamping tonight and doing the Tuesday Challenge, well I got part of it done I posted some awards I have recieved and I needed to get out. I awarded you two of the awards for special reasons which I talked about on the post so hop on by and take your awards when you have a moment!!!

Happy Anniversary!! Love these picked good ones!! :)
Hugs, Jami

Janna said...

Jessica, I hope you and your husband had a wonderful anniversary! I am sure he will love this card! It is stunning! I always love all the accessories you use! You are so talented at incorporating them!


Heather said...

O.K. so it is me yet again,

ha I should go find another post I have not commented on to leave you this, but anyway. I just read your comment and it made me laugh. I was hoping the humor in that "I am mad at Jessica" came out and people did not really think I am mad at you, because you have turned me onto some really great stamps!!!

I hope you get to feeling better!! I just posted the card that started out to be for Madelynns sketch but then it morphed into somthing totally different, and so I had to start another card for the sketch!!!

Such a burden I know more stamping how awful for me to have to do!!! LOL.

And I meant what I said in the second award I really do think your blog is fabulous Jessica and your work is even more fabulous!!!

I tried to leave this comment with your previous post but for some reason it isn't working. Does you son know the expression is shiver me timbers? Too funny he thinks it is shimmery timbers. Only the kid of a paper crafted. Love both cards btw.
