Prettie Dotted Wednesday

Happy Prettie Wednesday! I did enjoy the week off but I'm so excited to get back to our Prettie Girl challenges! It's so much fun seeing what the rest of the girls come up with! Ok, two weeks ago Jana challenged us to use polka dots, polka dot ribbon, paper, stamps, whatever - just something polka dotted! Have you noticed lately that polka dots are hot?! I guess they probably are never out of style, but I think they seem to be more "in style" lately.

Anyway, here is my card and I'm in love with it - lol! First of all, isn't this Rainy Day Friend set from Paper Pretties too cute?!! I just love Sophia in her rainboots, hat & umbrella! And what about that cute little doggie?!! Cute or what? Plus there are lots of other great images and sentiments in the set. I used Certainly Celery Designer Series paper and Flowers for You dp. I paper pieced Sophia's dress and umbrella, colored her boots and hat and then added Crystal Effects to the white areas on them - it really makes them pop! Oh, the huge brad? I got that at CHA - it was a marketing item from Imaginese. I simply removed the Imaginese logo printed pebble, added my dp and covered it with Crystal Effects. Now I wish I had grabbed a few more - lol! :) Hope Jillian enjoyed getting this card!

Last week Joni challenged us to use paper piecing on a card - as you can tell I LOVE doing this so that was a fun challenge - did you play along?? Today Danielle will be challenging us, can't wait to see what we're doing!

One last note, I have to apologize to all of you for my lack of commenting on your blogs lately. I think I mentioned my laptop has been sick so that has severely cut down my computer time!!! My new laptop is due to arrive tomorrow so I hope to be back up and running late this week - I know I'll have lots of beautiful creations to catch up on!! Have a great day!

Cardstock: Georgia Pacific White, Certainly Celery, Flowers for You and Designer Series Certainly Celery (SU!), Stamps: Rainy Day Friend (Paper Pretties), Inks: Palette Noir, Accessories: Watercolor Wonder crayons, Aquapainter, Crystal Effects, Circle punch, Celery grosgrain ribbon, (SU!), jumbo brad
