Good morning! Our Prettie Wednesday challenge comes from Jackie today. She told us to make a card using our favorite color and then use one shade lighter and one shade darker. . . hhmmmm, I wonder if anyone out there can guess my favorite color??? I love any shade of green! But as I've said before on this blog, I have a hard time with monochromatic cards, they just aren't my thing. But that's why this is called a challenge right?! :)
For my card I used Rainy Day Friend from Paper Pretties which was just re-released in rubber - yeah! I also pulled out one of my favorite stashes of dp - Scenic Route Charlotte - love that stuff! The dotted dp was perfect since it has 3 shades of green in it. The card is a "tent topper" card which was originally designed by Michelle Wooderson I believe.
Take a few minutes and visit the other Prettie Girls, their cards are sure to be gorgeous!! :)

One last little personal tidbit . . . last weekend was very productive around here. We found a set of bunk beds for the boys, purchased new mattresses, brought them home and set them up in the boys "new" room (formally just Aaron's room). Everyone was excited and have been enjoying the new configuration - although we still have quite a mess from the move to clean up.
Anyway, just thought I'd share this pic of Aaron sleeping in his "big boy bed" for the first time!! He's actually done quite well and as I type this now is sleeping his first night in the bed tucked in next to his big brother Ethan!
