Paper Pretties Wednesday Challenge!

Happy Wednesday!  It is time for another fun Paper Pretties challenge!  With the craziness of Thanksgiving and family and shopping upon us, we decided to go with a simple challenge this week...Clean and Simple that is.  We would love for you to play along with us.  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 (the prize this week is JOYFUL HEART) ! 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 PWC129. Please be sure to link up your project at the bottom of the challenge post on the Paper Pretties blog!

Before I get to my card I wanted to mention that Paper Pretties is having a Thanksgiving sale...15% off your entire order Thursday-Sunday.  Use coupon code: GIVETHANKS when checking out!

 CAS is NOT easy for me.  I am just not a CAS kind of girl.  This was definitely a challenge for me but in the end I had a great time.  I ended up trying several different CAS layouts.  I used stamps from the Paper Pretties sets SNOWFLAKESSNOWFLAKE KISSES SOPHIA and SNOWFLAKE MITTENS.

I liked how this first card turned out so much that I made it in 3 different colors (actually I decided to mass produce this one for Christmas so I ended up making 40 of these)

I saw a card very similar to this when I was cruising blogs this week and just had to CASE it  (sorry I can't remember whose blog it was).

I was having so much fun with the mittens that I made one more.

Here are a couple more easy snowflake cards.  The SNOWFLAKE set is so much fun and so versatile!

Thanks for stopping by today!  For those of you traveling for the holidays, may you have a safe journey.  I am so thankful for all of you!   I wish you all a very Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Birthday ARTish!

I hope you are all having a great weekend!  Today we are celebrating the birthday of our very own ARTish with a birthday blog hop!  If you arrived via Wendy's blog you are on the right path...if not be sure to start back at Cindy's blog so you don't miss any of the birthday inspiration!

I hope you have an absolutely wonderful day!

As part of our birthday celebration we are also releasing our Monday Whatnot images a day early!  We happen to be releasing a couple birthday whatnot images this week so we thought it would be perfect to use them for ARTish's birthday blog hop!

For my card I used ARTish's new digi DESMOND DONKEY.  I think this image is absolutely HILARIOUS!  I love it!  

You can finish up the hop by heading on over to ARTish's blog to wish her a happy birthday!
Thanks for stopping by today!  I hope you have a wonderful day!
