Hi everyone!

Today starts the beginning of the Paper Pretties sneak peeks in readiness for their release this Wednesday 9th March. Paper Pretties will be releasing 4 brand new sets … I am sure you are going to love them.

To start off the Pretties Peeks, the design team are showcasing the Party Giraffe stamp set. This is such a fun set!

It’s also Saturday which means it’s challenge time with the “Crazies” over on the Crazy 4 Challenges blog. This week our challenge hostess for the month, Silke Ledlow has given us a fun sketch challenge.


Here is the inside of my card, I used the same layout as on the front of my card. The sentiment is another from the Party Giraffe Stamp set.
