Hoot Hoot Hooray!

PP-Jess-bday-wm

Hoot Hoot Hooray …. It’s Jessica George’s birthday and the Paper Pretties Design team have all come out to wish her a very happy day! Have a Happy Birthday Jessica!!!!!!!!

Of course what better way to celebrate than a Birthday Blog Hop Prettie Girl style! As we can't get together to celebrate in person the next best thing is a virtual birthday party! The hop starts with me so you have started at the right place!

Of course today is also Saturday which means it’s challenge time with the “Crazies” over on the Crazy 4 Challenges blog.

This week Joycelyn Pelkey, the challenge hostess for this month has challenged us to a color challenge. We were to use the colors Red, Black and Kraft to create our cards.

C4C54-Red-Black-&-Kraft

For my card I decided to use the Paper Pretties “Give A Hoot” stamp set. I just love these cute owls. I colored the owl as closely as I could to match the kraft color that I used on my designer paper and card base of my card.

Don't forget to check out the rest of the “Crazies” cards over on the Crazy 4 Challenges blog and also their individual blogs for more details.

Here is the inside of my card, I used another piece of the Basic Grey Kraft Designer Paper for the inside and stamped the owls again on the lower right hand corner of my card.

Here is the order of the hop in case you get lost along the way:

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoy the party festivities so far. Now it is time to continue on our birthday blog hop and visit the blog of Cindy Haffner. Don’t forget to wish Jessica a Happy Birthday when you reach her blog.
