Off To School … No It’s Summer Holidays!


Hi everyone,

The Prettie Girls are back with another Pretties Wednesday Challenge & Blog Hop. If you started at my blog then you are at the right place as this is the beginning of the blog hop.

Now before I get into the challenge and my card …. we have some very exciting news for you. Paper Pretties is under new management!!!!!!! Yes that’s right, Paper Pretties is now owned by Heather Lee-Reppen ….. what does this mean for you:

  • Paper Pretties is now based in the USA so that means cheaper & faster shipping for everyone.

    For U.S. orders....flat rate of $5 for all orders up to $49.99. Free Shipping for all orders $50 and over

    For Canada orders...flat rate of $7 for all orders up to $69.99. Free Shipping for all orders $70 and over

    All other International orders...flat rate of $13

  • Huge Sale going on right now with most stamp sets are 40-50%
  • Lots of new products…. 6"x6" paper pads, Smooch Spritz, Kaiser gems, flowers and rhinestones etc

Ok now onto the challenge …. this week’s challenge is hosted by Jennifer Greco. Jennifer challenge us to create a card or project that summer-themed (the theme can be summer colors, school's out, graduation).

As you can see I went with the School’s out theme, my card for today’s challenge uses “Off To School”, isn't she a cutie. Up in the Northern Hemisphere most of the kids are on their summer holidays ... down where I live it is still school for all the kids down here ... they may get 2 weeks off but as it isn't summer till December for us they have to wait till then for those summer holidays everyone enjoys so much.

Want to play along with us

How to Enter: Create a card/project using the challenge above and any Paper Pretties stamp set(s) you have. Upload your project to the Paper Pretties gallery. Please include it in the Weekly Challenges category and use keyword PWC108.
