Good Morning, Prettie Peeps!
How are you all this Wednesday morning? Ugh we are a bunch of sickies...not fun. This is the nastiest cough I can remember having in a long time...and the poor kiddos sound even worse :( Will this EVER end? I know it's nearing March, but it is DEFINITELY the heart of winter, still...in my book.
With that in mind, I decided to pull out my darling Gliding By Sophia from Paper Pretties for a few last laps around the ice that doesn't seem to want to melt!
A few weeks ago, Jodi challenged us Prettie Girls to make a "Power of One" card...ONE layer, ONE embellie, ONE sentiment. Ok, can you say HARD? I am sooooooo not the one layer card girl! So this was especially challenging for me.
I embossed my cardstock with my squares to create at least a little variation in the stark, white, nothing-ness that I am SOOO not used to LOL!...and to create a nice frame for my pretty in pink Sophia. Added stickles as my embellie, wasn't sure if that counted as a "real" embellie (what do you guys think hee hee?) and stamped the sentiment. Hey, at least this one will only cost me .42 to mail, right???
Be sure to check out what the other Prettie Girls challenged themselves to this week with the "power of one"...links on my sidebar.
