Pretties Wednesday: Another Fiesta!


Hey Prettie Peeps...

When it came to be my turn two weeks ago to issue a challenge to the Prettie Girls, I had birthdays on the brain! DD's was last Friday, DH's is this Tuesday and my little DS's (ok, not so little...they're getting so big!) will be 7 at the end of the month! Whew! It's the all-broke network over here in March LOL!

Anyway, I kept things simple and issued a Birthday card challenge. Yep, simple as that...make a birthday card.


I got this BG "Cupcake" paper a while back and hadn't really gotten to use much, so it got to come out to play along with this SUPER cute Hola Chica stamp from Paper Pretties! She is the April Stamp of the Month, so you still have time to snag her!

You can read all about the Stamp of the Month club here, but basically it means that she will be released to members sometime during the month BEFORE she is available on May 1st to purchase regularly. How fun is that? She is such a cutie pie...definitely a Fiesta in a stamp! I love her and she's super fun to color, too!

Be sure to check out what the UBER-fab DT made today for my challenge...the links are on my sidebar! I'm off to check them out now! I can't wait to see what they came up with as I know they will all be amazing!

See you back tomorrow ;) Hugs!

Jessica,

I love this card. I was not sure if I liked that stamp or not, but I really like how you colored her up here!!!

I really enjoy your coloring and that paper is so fun!!!!

Coloring wonderful as always!!!

We do not have the same month, but the same day.

DD is Feb 27th, Mine is March 27, DS's is June 27th, and if I had had my way the other DD would have been May 27th but Doc made me go to June 2nd five days longer!!!

Enjoy your birthdays they always make me sad!!!
