All Aboard!


Hi everyone,

It’s time for another Pretties Wednesday Challenge over on the Paper Pretties Blog. This week is the start of a brand new month, which means it is my turn to bring you another Pretties Wednesday Sketch Challenge.

This week we also welcome Cindy Haffner as this month's Guest Designer.

For my card today I used one of the new Paper Pretties stamps, this one is called Engineer Cooper. I just adore this set especially so as my DH is into trains … his birthday is coming up this month so I will actually be using this card for his birthday card. Of course I had to also use my Martha Stewart Train border punch to go with this set.

PWC117-All-Aboard2-wm Here is the inside of my card. I added another of the sentiments included in the set and also stamped the little boy with his train set in the lower right hand corner of my card.


Want to play along with us:

How to Enter: If you would like to play along with us, all you have to do is create a card/project using the above challenge and upload it to your blog and/or to your SCS Gallery using the keyword PWC117.

Don’t forget to include link to your card on the Paper Pretties Blog, so everyone can see it too. You don’t have to use Paper Pretties stamps to play, but of course if you have them we would love to see you use them. One random participant will receive a Paper Pretties Stamps set … see the Paper Pretties Blog for more details.
