Hope Your Day Is A Hoot!


Hi everyone!

Today starts the beginning of the Paper Pretties sneak peeks in readiness for their release this Thursday 12th August.

If you haven’t heard the news recently, Paper Pretties is under new management ….. and also now based in the USA … now this means that service is fast and reliable.

This is the first release since Paper Pretties changed hands and I have to tell you the Design Team are pretty excited about the stamps which are being released …. you are going to love them!!!!! There are a total of 12 stamps sets going to be released, including some new old favorites Sophia & Cooper. The new release stamps are all clear stamps which include more then one sentiment in each set.

To start off my sneak peeks, I am sharing with you the new “Give A Hoot” stamp set …. ever since I started on the Paper Pretties Design Team a couple of years ago I have been suggesting an owl set, and look we finally get one …. thanks Heather!!!!!!!!!!

To create my card I used papers from the Queen Bee Pink Paislee 6 x 6 Collection which you will find in the Paper Pretties Boutique. I also used some of the May Arts Olive Green Ric Rak also available in the Boutique.


Here is the inside of my card …. this is actually two different sentiments that are included in the set.
