Pretties Wednesday: Caffeine please!


It's no secret that I, uh, kind of LOVE my coffee! This week I need it more than ever as some late nights and busy days have kept me hoppin'....maybe IV caffeine is in order LOL!

Two weeks ago, Jackie Pedro challenged the Prettie Girls to use BAJA BREEZE, KRAFT, and CHOCOLATE CHIP on our next card. Now, as you may recall, I issued a similar challenge a few months back because I simply LOOOOOOVE this color combo! So awesome choice, for sure!

Plus, it reminds me of coffee and hence had to use one of my favorite sets from Paper Pretties, Look Who's Perky! I used COFFEE Shimmerz (had to!) to paint my mugs along with my BG72 Copic which matches Baja Breeze really well. To top it off, I put a little Angel Wings on the "steam" just to give it a little more shimmer.

You can check out what the rest of our Prettie family whipped up for this colorfully sweet challenge by visiting their blogs as well. Show some love to:



On Friday, I'll be showing you our new Hola Chica stamp, which is our April Stamp of the Month! Have you SEEN how awesome she is? You have until the end of March to sign up for the Stamp of the Month club! This is a great way to collect the monthly releases of our super cute Sophia stamps, and the best part? You'll receive your stamp sometime during the month BEFORE she is released to the public! How fun is that? In addition, you'll gain access to a Members-only gallery of Stamp of the Month creations and we of course, LOVE to see what you make, too!

And speaking of those Copic Markers... I have something SUPER fun to tell you on that front as well. Did you know that Paper Pretties is now carrying Copic markers for 20% off the retail price? How amazing is THAT? Check it out today and begin stocking up on some great basic colors, whether you're just starting out or have been using the markers for a while now...you won't be sorry you did!

Last but not least? Like this card? You can create one similar from the Prettie sketch of the week. Check out THIS post on The Paper Clip Blog to check it out!
Have a Prettie week everyone! Hugs!

P.S. By the way you had the chance to hear my voice today but you refused to answer the phone!!!!

I was giving Janna a hard time about why you have not used your 3 way yet, and she said she also had it on her phone!!!

I told her she had to call you, and my word walking the girl though how to use technology was no easy feat!!!! She did not even want to try it, but I forced her too, and it requied some hanging up and calling back and all and after all that work you do not answer??? What the Heck????
