A Preview, a Birthday and an oops...


Happy Wednesday!  That means it is time for a Paper Pretties Wednesday challenge.  The challenge this week is EMBOSSING!  We'd love for you to play along. One random challenge participant this week will win the Paper Pretties set "Simply Special". You do not need to use Paper Pretties stamps in order to play along, but if you do, you will get a bonus entry into the drawing! Please be sure to mention our challenge and link back to the Paper Pretties blog in your project posting. When uploading to SCS or PCP please use keyword PWC127. Please be sure to link up your project at the bottom of the challenge post on the Paper Pretties blog !

Along with this week's challenge we have a November preview and a birthday celebration!  Today is Prettie Girl Jen's birthday and to celebrate the DT has put together a fun inspiration filled blog hop using today's preview set "EVERYDAY SENTIMENTS".

HAPPY BIRTHDAY JEN!  I'm so lucky to have you as a friend!  We definitely need to get together soon!   I hope you have a great day!


EVERYDAY SENTIMENTS is filled with 9 wonderful sentiments and 4 decorative stamps!  Great for those "everyday" cards!

 For my card I used used SURPRISE SOPHIA along with EVERYDAY SENTIMENTS.  You might be wondering where my embossing is...that's the OOPS.  I sat down to work on my card and I looked around for a good sketch...settled on the current Basic Grey challenge #32...then I looked around for some more challenges to inspire me...I decided to make another square card for the Crazy 4 Challenges square card challenge and then figured I'd use a punch to play along with the Drunken Stampers punch challenge #41...I figured that was enough, so I made my card.  Viola!  Done!  OOPS...after all that time I spent searching for challenges I forgot I was supposed to be doing some embossing for our challenge.  Since my stamping time is limited, I had to just go with the flow and post this one anyway.  Next time I promise I will pay more attention to what I'm doing!


Don't forget to stop on by the Paper Pretties blog  to leave a comment for a chance to win EVERYDAY SENTIMENTS. 

Thanks for stopping by!  I hope you all have a wonderful day!

NEXT stop on the birthday blog hop is the blog of THE BIRTHDAY GIRL!

I love how you changed the colors and paper to come up with yet another OUTSTANDING card. This blog hopping is so inspiring. I could spend the entire week (no make it month) looking at all the beautiful card made by the DT and guest bloggers. Thanks to all of you for the tips and sharing you creations.
