A Prettie "Tripped Out" Friday...

Hey everyone!
It's Friday which means it's my day to post another card using Paper Pretties Stamps! I didn't get a chance to show you all this, my very, very "trippy" card.

Last Sunday, on the 1st, Paper Pretties had our monthly "Stamping in your Jammies" party to celebrate our new releases. One of the fun things we do is issue challenges out to all who attend and sometimes play for prizes! How cool is that?

Our first challenge of that evening was to create a card using colors that reminded us of our favorite cartoon character. Well, I think we all know that Alice in Wonderland is mine...and you know, that made me look at the newly released "Hippity Hoppity" Sophia in a WHOLE new light!
I was coloring in her dress using blue and white just like Alice, when it hit me...OMG! She IS Alice..and she's ALSO the White Rabbit LOL! So, it was sort of fun to see the two main characters of my favorite movie get morphed into one in my head.

Add to that, this SUPER "Trippy" paper I found at my new favorite LSS...and I say NEW Favorite only because I JUST discovered it and it IS my favorite already hee hee....It's by Sassafrass Lass. I saw the mushrooms and immediately thought of the movie, too. So it all had to happen...you know how that goes.

I used last week's Mojo Monday sketch to create this card and I'm not sure about ALL those yellow brads, although it WAS a good way to use 'em, if anything, right? Well, have a great weekend everyone!
I have a busy one planned but I will try to check in w you all! Hugs! ~Jessica ;)

Hi Jessica,
I am pretty much computer illiterate so i wasn't sure how to reply to your very sweet comment on my shrinking Ian tutorial. I am at work so I couldn't send an email through your website. Please feel free to link it any time you would like. You are such a sweetie for your kind words, thanks for the encouragement.
