Happy New Year's Eve! Today's Prettie Challenge was from Jackie Pedro, it was to create an ATC and then add it to a card. I love making ATCs, although I do not do it very often! Something about making such a cute little "work of art" makes me happy. But I will confess I had a hard time today - I think my stamping mojo is on Winter Break! :) I've read similar confessions around blogworld lately so maybe we should just all go somewhere warm together until it returns - lol!!
Truthfully I think my problem was that I wanted to use this cute Cosmo Cricket paper and I always have a hard time with muted, earthy colors. Oh well! I do love the pretty cross-stitch inspired paper and thought it almost resembled some wallpaper behind the "portrait" of Sophia which was made with Cuddle Me from Paper Pretties, of course. I stamped her on watercolor paper and colored with ink pads and an Aquapainter.
Today is my turn to issue the challenge . . . and I'm going to encourage you all to play along by offering some Jules Jewels (i.e. blog candy) for playing!! The challenge: search the Paper Pretties Gallery, find a card/project that inspires you and case it! Easy right?! (Please link the card that inspired you when you post.) There are soooooo many beautiful things in the Gallery - tons of inspiration! And remember if you are a Stamp of the Month Club member there is a special Gallery of cards by the Prettie Girls just for you!! No one else can view these creations - how cool is that?!!
What's the prize? Your very own Cuddle Me Sophia stamp, the one I used for my card today! Add a link to your card in a comment on this post and I will draw a random winner 2 weeks from today (1/14/09) when we post our inspired cards!
Thanks for visiting! Be sure to visit the other Prettie Girls to see their ATC cards!
