PWC80 - A Prettie Sketch!

Well, it's Wednesday again and you know what that means! There are two challenges posted here today! I am hosting this week's La-La Land Crafts challenge and if you love buttons as much as I do, then you're not going to want to miss out on it! Just click HERE or scroll down to the next post!

If you are following the Paper Pretties' Wednesday Challenge blog hop, then you should be coming from Kristy's blog. If not, then simply start with Christie's blog so that you don't miss out on what's new this month! Have you been following along with us this week? Have you seen all of the fabulous sneak peeks? Have you left comments in the Pretties' Gallery so that you can have your chances to win a new stamp set from the December release? I know! Pretty awesome, right?

This week, one of the Prettie girls, Frances, has come up with a sketch challenge for us!

For this challenge, I wanted to incorporate a SCS challenge that asked for Black, Very Vanilla, and Close to Cocoa. As soon as I started putting the cardstocks together with the sketch, I knew I just had to start working with the Time for Cake set. If you haven't seen them yet, just click on these direct links to Kristy, Jana, and Frances to see what they did with this beautiful set. I will be posting one last sneak peek with this set tomorrow so be sure to come back! :)

La-La's Weekly Wednesday Challenge 15 - Buttons, Buttons, Buttons!!

Hello everybody! Welcome to another La-La's Weekly Wednesday Challenge

I get to host! This week's challenge is all about BUTTONS! I was organizing my embellishments and realized how many buttons I have managed to collect over the years. It seems that I love to collect and not use them! Does anyone else have this problem? Well, now you get to look through your stash and find one or two or however many you want to use for this challenge.

To find out more about this fun challenge, just hop over to La-La Land Crafts for the details! Post your project for this challenge on Mr. Linky and you have a chance for TOP 3 Faves... and the project with the most vote gets the Pepper with Cake stamp that I am using on my card today!

Here's my card!

Stamp: Pepper with Cake
Ink: Tuxedo Black (Memento), Close to Cocoa (SU)
Paper: Chocolate Chip, Pretty in Pink, Whisper White (SU)
Copics: 0, E30, E33, E35, E39, E57, E59, E74, E79, Y06, YR07, R30, W00, W03
