Let the previews begin...

Today is the first day of the Paper Pretties October release previews! We have 7 absolutely fabulous sets being released this month. All of the new sets will be available in the Paper Pretties store on Friday Oct 15th.

For my card today I used the new Victoria Case set "Holiday Fairy Meg". I absolutely love the fairies Victoria has illustrated for Paper Pretties...they are all absolutely stunning!

My sketch comes from the Friday Sketchers sketch challenge this week.

I took my photo at 10pm last night, so I apologize for the not-so-great quality. I'm hoping to take a new photo today when I have some good natural light.

I hope you are all having a great weekend! Be sure to check out the Paper Pretties blog for more previews all week!

Happy Wednesday!

Sorry for the lack of posts this past week. I'm still trying to find my groove now that both kids are in school. I'm failing badly at time management it seems.

Anyway...Happy Wednesday! I hope you are all having a great week! It is the first Wednesday of the month, so that means it is time for a fabulous sketch challenge from Frances! We'd love for you to play along. One random challenge participant this week will win the Paper Pretties set "Bundle Up Cooper". 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 PWC122. Please be sure to link up your project at the bottom of the challenge post on the Paper Pretties blog!

Here is this week's sketch:

I decided to stick as close to the sketch as possible. I opened up a new pad of Basic Grey Wander designer paper. This pack is full of fun travel patterns! I paired it up with the set Home Sweet Home from Paper Pretties. We just got new neighbors a few houses down from us so I thought I'd make them a card to welcome them to the neighborhood.

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