Doesn’t Every Girl Like To Feel Prettie!


Cream colored ponies and crisp apple strudels
Doorbells and sleigh bells and schnitzel with noodles
Wild geese that fly with the moon on their wings
These are a few of my favorite things

Yeap it is me back singing again hehe … just as well you can’t actually hear me sing now THAT would be scary hehe!

Today I have another Paper Pretties sneak peek to share with you. As you may have read in my Pretties Tuesday post, this month we thought we'd have some fun and give you a chance to win the new releases. Since our Pretties stamps are some our favorite things, our peeks will be based on the lyrics to A Few Of My Favorite Things.

Each day two or three of the Prettie Girls will upload their challenge cards based on a new lyric. If you stop by the Pretties Gallery and leave that Prettie Girl a comment on what your 'FAVORITE THING' about her card is, you'll have a chance to win the new set that has been used in that challenge - make sense? The contest will end November 2nd and the winners will be posted on the Paper Clip. You can find the link to the specific cards in the Paper Pretties gallery on each blog post.

Julie Masse & Heather Lee-Reppen will also be posting a sneak peek on their blog today (Friday) so make sure you check them out too for even more chances of winning prizes.

Don't forget to stop on by the party in the Paper Pretties forum on November 1st at 8pm EST when all the stamps will be released for sale.

For my card today the part of the lyrics I had to use was : schnitzel with noodles (yikes!)

Anyway after some thought about this one I remembered that saying “tough as shoe leather” which basically means that something is difficult to cut or eat! As luck would have it one of the sets that Paper Pretties is releasing this month is called “Sassy Shoes” so I decided that that would be the set I would use for this particular sneak peek/challenge and that my schnitzel would just have to be tough hehehe!  Definitely don’t eat this schnitzel :) . That sorted I still had the noodles to figure out … I guess I could have used Paper Pretties “Flirty Fortunes” set, but as that had nothing to do with shoes I didn’t. Instead I used the ribbon as my noodles …. you can get flat noodles. I threaded it onto my card like you would a pair of shoes! Phew!!!!!!!!!!

Don’t forget to comment on my card in the Paper Pretties gallery for your chance to win the “Sassy Shoes” stamp set used on my card.
