Paper Pretties Wednesday Challenge!

We're back! After taking a few weeks is time for the Paper Pretties Wednesday challenges to start back up! Our challenge this week comes from design team member Jennifer Greco. Jennifer challenged everyone to make a summer themed card! We'd love for you to play along!

With all of the chaos of buying/starting a business, I honestly haven't stamped in over a month. I'm not even sure I remember how to stamp, LOL. I can't remember if I shared this one with you yet but since I don't really have anything else for you I'm just going to pretend that I haven't. For this card I used Make A Wish Sophia. She is one of my favorite Sophia images!

All of the stamps in the Paper Pretties store are on sale 10-75% off. Most of the sets are in the 40-50% range so it is a great time to pick up a few from your wish list! I also added tons of fun new products to the store....6x6 designer paper pads, Kaiser gems, pearls and flowers, adhesives, Smooch Spritz and more!

Paper Pretties shipping is faster and more affordable than ever...for U.S. orders $5 flat rate for orders up to $50. Free shipping on orders over $50. Canada orders $7 flat rate for orders up to $70. Free shipping on orders over $70. All other International orders $13 flat rate.

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

Jacksonbelle Tuesday Challenge!

It is a sad day :( Today is the last Jacksonbelle Tuesday challenge. Lindsey is closing the virtual doors of the Jacksonbelle store at the end of the month. The entire store is 75% off. Things have been selling fast but there are still a few fabulous products left.

Before I share my card for today, I want to say THANK YOU to Lindsey for giving me the opportunity to be a part of her team. I have been on the JB design team for the past year and a half and I have loved every minute of it. Lindsey are a wonderful, sweet, dear friend and I wish you the very best in all of your future endeavors! Of coarse you can't get rid of me this easily...I will definitely be keeping in touch! I'm so sad that this chapter in your life is ending, but I know the best is yet to come for you!

I have to be honest and say that I didn't make a new card for today's post. I decided to go back and look at all of my Jacksonbelle challenge cards and repost a few of my favorites from the past year and half. Unfortunately when I looked at my early cards I seriously had to cringe. I'm not even sure how I managed to get on the team...yikes...scary stuff...LOL.

This was one of the very first cards I made as part of the JB DT. It also happens to be the very first card I ever had published. When I joined the JB team I knew nothing about submitting cards. The team was super supportive and really encouraged me to submit. I can't thank them enough for all of the support and advice!

This is one of my favorite JB challenge cards ever! I usually struggle with clean and simple but I really loved how this card came together!
I won't bore you with too much more....

This happens to be my favorite JB challenge card...EVER! I am in love with the Basic Grey Origins line as well as Zva Creative bling and Stampavie stamps! This card also happens to be my 40th publication! It is in the September 2010 issue of Scrap and Stamp Arts! Without Lindsey and the Jacksonbelle team, I'm not sure that I would have ever found the confidence to submit my cards. Thank you ladies for everything!
