Hey Prettie Peeps!
Well, as I am typing this I am listening to Junebugs smacking against my window LOL...ewwwwww....but, that means one thing: SUMMER IS COMING! Hooray! Summer is definitely my favorite season, so even though I'll be making sure to steer clear of the backyard after dark for the next few weeks lol (I hate those suckers!), the warm weather is finally on the way!
A few weeks ago, when one of my stamping idols, the FABULOUS Jodi Collins issued us Pretties a color challenge, I was STUMPED! She challenged us to use Pacific Point, Baja Breeze, and Apricot Appeal on our cards. Yikes! I say that because one, this isn't your "everyday" color combo, and two, because, well, I didn't HAVE Pacific Point OR Apricot Appeal LOL!
My good friend (and convenient neighbor :) Darla came to my rescue. She comes over whenever we have free time to stamp and is also a SU Demo, so she had just what I needed for the challenge. I should also tell you that she LOOOOOVES penguins :) See where I am going here? Yup, this card is for her :) I used the "Thank you" sentiment from the new Giving Thanks Sophia, our June Stamp of the Month. This cute little Snowflake the Penguin image called "Surf's Up!" is an older Pretties stamp but I just love his cool and carefree attitude :)
Using my brand new EK Success beach punch (LOVE it!), I created the top border and had some awesome summer vacation paper from Imaginisce that happened to match this color combo-whew! Thankfully this all kind of came together and although it was a challenge, these colors do work well together...and hey, a challenge wouldn't BE a challenge if we didn't hem and haw a bit, right? So, thanks Jodi!...and Darla!

Last but not least, It's MY turn to issue a challenge to my fellow Pretties. In the spirit of Spring and the coming Summer...and well, since it's my FAVORITE thing (In fact, I can't believe I haven't done this already, LOL)....I challenge the Prettie Girls to create a card using a BUTTERFLY somwhere on the card. I'm goin' easy on y'all :) Can't wait to see what you guys create! Hope it's a fun one!
Thanks for stopping by today, everyone! I always love when you do!
