PWC111 - Non-Traditional Christmas (in July!)

Happy Wednesday! Are you ready for the Prettie Wednesday Challenge?! WE ARE BACK!!!  Paper Pretties has returned to the BLOG FORMAT for store news, information, etc....aaaaaand the PWC!  I think we can all agree that the blog is best.  :)  I've been waiting for this change since Heather became the new owner of Paper Pretties and moved the store to the USA!  She's been kinda busy working on alllllll the new stamp sets (ssshhh!) but we've got it ready now!  And having the blog back means that we've got a linking system (InLinkz, love it!) and PRIZES!!!  Yes yes yes!!  Check out the Paper Pretties Blog for all the details and your chance to win!

Ok, this week Jackie challenged us to make a Christmas card using non-traditional colors.  I'm pretty sure mine qualifies...LOL...although oddly enough, I'm pretty happy with how it turned out.  Goooo non-traditional!!
And the store news - in case you didn't catch some of my posts the last couple of weeks, but you will be seeing exceptional customer service and lightning fast shipping from Paper Pretties from here on out, with SIGNIFICANTLY lower shipping costs -- and free shipping after you meet the minimums too. Full details on new shipping rates can be found on the main page over at Paper Pretties.

Oh, and did I mention that right now, every in-stock stamp set at Paper Pretties is ON SALE??? Yes they are!! Discounts range from 10 to 75% off, but MOST are in the 40 to 50% off range. That is a HUGE DEAL!!

Please join us on Facebook!!  Here's the link to the Paper Pretties page.  You can chat, share your art, and learn about store news and sales right through everyone's FAVORITE THING, Facebook.  (heehee, I know I am addicted!).

I almost forgot - I incorporated a sketch challenge with today's card.  Myyyyyy favorite! This is Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge #83.  Here's the sketch:

That's all for me!  Thanks for stopping by! Head over to Heather's blog to finish off the hop, and then GO SHOPPING at the Prettie Boutique! Oh, and don't forget to go see our new Paper Pretties store blog!  Boy, you'll be busy.  :)  Have a great day everyone!
