Happy Wednesday, everyone! It's time for two new challenges! If you are searching for La-La's Weekly Wednesday Challenge, then please scroll down to the next post or click HERE.

It’s time for another Paper Pretties Wednesday Challenge and Blog Hop! If you didn't get here from Wendy Bond's blog, then you might want to hop back over to Prettie Mama Christie Ortman's blog... don't want you to miss out on a thing! Speaking of which, have you seen her beautiful photography? I love the ones of her children flying kites. Have you seen her new craft space? I wish I was that organized! lol!

So this week's is brought to you by Prettie girl, Wendy Bond. Wendy is in the mood for masculine cards since she has several birthdays coming up that calls for the manly look. For this challenge, the Prettie girls are using “Wade E Bug” and “Bugs and Fishes” which are both 20% off this week!!

I went with “Wade E Bug”... I think he's just the cutest 'lil bug!!
The sketch is from Friday Sketchers Challenge #95. I LOVE this sketch!!

Heeeeeere's Wade E Bug!

I was thinking of giving this one to my husband for his next birthday.
The guy gets carded all the time... he's older than me too!
A lot older.

HEY! It kinda looks like him too. Cute!!
I just need to add the glasses. :)

Come play along with us!

LLWWC32 - Paper Pieced Happy Maya

Welcome to La-La Land's Weekly Wednesday Challenge!!

Before I get started with this week's challenge, I just to give a big "Thank you!!" to all the talented ladies who joined us for last week's "Make-your-own-flowers" Challenge!! I love seeing all of your wonderful projects! A special "Thank you" to those who used our stamps and digis!

Today's host is Kristine and her challenge is PAPER PIECING! For those who have never tried this or need some help, a few of us on the design team have posted tutorials on paper piecing. You can find Jane's Here, Maureen's Here, and Jana's Here.

Kristine has used Rosie with Bird, and so this adorable rubber stamp will be on sale 20% OFF this whole week!

I paper pieced Happy Maya, one of my favorite La-La Land Crafts' stamps.

I joined in on the fun over at Splitcoaststamper's Sketch Challenge #274.
