A Hop Away from Home...SWEET Home!


Hey everyone!

I am SO excited about today's Prettie Post! Today is going to be full of LOTS of festivities, as it's May 1st, and it's time for our monthly Stampin' in your Jammies Party at Paper Pretties! Please join us this evening...I'll post all the details below.

For now....I am THRILLED for my fellow DT member Danielle Lounds, whose BRAND NEW STAMP SET, "Home Sweet Home" will be released TONIGHT!

Danielle has been an amazing inspiration to all of us Prettie Girls and we are all just THRILLED for her as she is now a Stamp Designer as well! CONGRATS DANIELLE!

To celebrate this new release, the Prettie Girls are hoppin'!...BLOG hoppin that is! Be sure to head back to Christie's blog where all the fun started! When you're done here, head on over to Danielle's blog next to congratulate her and see her very OWN preview of this brand new set!

I chose to create a card using Home Sweet Home using Danielle's sketch challenge, PWC50. What better way to celebrate her new set by using a sketch that she drew? I thought so!

I have to admit, this house does remind me an awful lot of my parents' old house, the one they just moved from. I have to say, all things considered, they couldn't have sold it to nicer people. In fact, at their final walk through last week the day before the closing, the owners actually hugged my Dad and told him that if he or any of us ever wanted to come back to see it, etc. to feel free and that they were so thankful everything went so well, etc. Seriously?? How many times do you hear THAT?

Because they were so nice and made my parent's move less stressful (and let me tell ya, that was the ONLY part that wasn't LOL!), I've decided to send this to them. Heck, I know the address, right? And the almost eerie resemblance to the house is something I can tell they'll appreciate! So fun! I can't wait for them to get it!

We have ANOTHER surprise for you to announce in addition to the fact that it's our RELEASE DAY at Paper Pretties!!! We are having an EXTRA SPECIAL party! Today is Christie's, the owner and operator of Paper Pretties, birthday!! HAPPY BIRTHDAY, PRETTIE MAMA!

Please join us at the party tonight to wish her a VERY happy birthday!! The festivities start at 7pmCST, so be there or be square!!

For now, dont' forget to head over to Danielle's blog next and send her a shout out for a job well done! You are going to LOVE the new Home Sweet Home stamp set! See you tonight!
