Let the November previews begin!

Happy Friday!  I hope you all had a wonderful week!  Today I am SO excited to share the first of 7 new November release sets with you.  All 7 new releases will be available in the Paper Pretties store on Friday Nov. 12th.   We will be previewing one set each day on the Paper Pretties blog until release day.  One random lucky commenter on the Paper Pretties blog each preview day will win the set being previewed.  The winners from each preview day will be posted on the Paper Pretties blog on Friday.  As in previous months, we will still have a inspiration filled blog hop on release day (this month we have 7 AWESOME guest blog hoppers joining us!). 

Today's preview set is called "SURPRISE SOPHIA" and is illustrated by Joni Stringfield.  "SURPRISE SOPHIA" is the perfect addition to our growing collection of adorable Sophia stamps.   The set comes with 1 main image stamp, 5 sentiment stamps and 2 fun swirls.

Thanks for stopping by!  Be sure to head on over to the Paper Pretties blog for more inspiration.  While you are there be sure to leave a comment for a chance to win this adorable set!

Paper Pretties Wednesday Challenge!

Happy Wednesday!  It is the first Wednesday of the month which means a FANTASTIC sketch challenge from Prettie Girl Frances Byrne!   We'd love for you to play along. One random challenge participant this week will win the Paper Pretties set "Snowy Snuggles". 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 PWC126. Please be sure to link up your project at the bottom of the challenge post on the Paper Pretties blog !

Here is the sketch:

I absolutely LOVE today's sketch.  I had such a great time working with all of the layers.  I used "Bundle Up Cooper" for today's card.  I love this stamp because honestly, it really could be a Cooper or a Sophia, depending on how you color the snowsuit.  I've done it in both pink and blue and it really works both ways!   I'm entering my card in the Fussy and Fancy Winter Wonderland Challenge.

Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you all have a great day!  Don't forget that Paper Pretties is looking for some new DT members!  You still have plenty of time to get your application in!  There are calls for Digi Prettie Girls and Prettie Girls!

Monday Whatnots!

Happy Monday!  I hope you all had a wonderful weekend!  It is time for our Paper Pretties Monday Whatnot release!  ARTish drew some fabulous holiday images for us this week.  Both of these new images are available in the Paper Store in the digital stamp section!  This week we have Astra and Rudolph for you.

I used Astra for my card today.  The sentiment is from the Holiday Fairy Meg set.  I played along with a couple challenges again:  Friday Sketchers Sketch challenge and Christmas Stampin all year long (purple and silver) challenge.

Thanks for stopping by today!   Have a wonderful day!
