Hola Chica...it's a Fiesta!


Hi everyone :)

I'm posting my Pretties Friday card now as I will have two posts for Friday, but love this card so much I thought I'd show her off a little bit early :D

So, my DD is 9 today. My oldest. I cannot even believe that she is such a big girl. I have to focus on the fun stuff today because I feel like crying at the same time..I'm such a sap! I'm just so amazed at how fast she's growing up and how amazingly smart, beautiful, and talented she is. I am completely and TOTALLY head over heels amazed by her....so HAPPY BIRTHDAY Sweetheart! I love you so much, Madelynn!

As is tradition, we are going to be having Chevy's for her birthday dinner, complete with the keepsake sombrero lol, so I was definitely in the mood for a mexican fiesta, and what better way to get in the spirit than with this new Hola Chica stamp from Paper Pretties! Isn't she a party on a stamp? I LOVE her! She is the April Stamp of the Month, and if you haven't signed up for our awesome Stamp of the Month club yet, you can check out all the details here. Sign up before the end of this month and you'll receive her in April, sometime during the month before she's released to the public in May. How fun is that?
I also LOVE LOVE LOVE this new Raspberry Tart paper that I got my hands on last week and I'm seriously enamored..wow. Not only is it my FAVORITE color but the rich patterns and shades are just gorgeous! Very fun and funky and I'm sure you'll be seeing a lot more of both!
Well, that's about it for now...I'll be back later Friday ...and be sure to check back...I've got something WILD to show you!...
