Sweet Friends Rosie sees RED

Hi everyone! I am SO excited! Today, I get to host both challenges! To see the Paper Pretties CASE Challenge and blog hop, please either scroll down to the next post or click HERE.

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

It's Jane and I am your hostess for La-La's Weekly Wednesday Challenge #26!
It's a color challenge in honor of Valentine's and Chinese New Year.

This week, I want to see what you do with RED. Pull out the red cardstock, red ribbon, red brads, red bling... I want to see RED! Of course it's fine to add other colors but red should be the main color.

I decided to join in on the fun at Mojo Monday (sketch below) and Crazy 4 Challenges C4C24 (RED).

Isn't a fabulous sketch?
Here's my RED Sweet Friends Rosie card using the sketch...

You have a change to win Sweet Friends Rosie! Seriously!!
Hop on over to La-La Land Crafts for all of the details.

I can't wait to see what you all come up with!
Bring on the RED!!


PWC91 - Crafty Emergency... CASE'ing Julie!

Welcome to Prettie Wednesday! I am so excited!! Today's challenger is ME! I am so excited that I get to host TWO challenges in one week... and on the same day! Now how often does that happen?!

Before I get started, I just want to let you know that if you didn't get here from Kristy Ketterlin's blog, then you might want to start at the very beginning with Christie Ortman's blog... you won't want to miss all of the wonderful DT creations!

I have a CASE challenge for PWC91. Here's what you have to do:

1) Look into your favorites here in the PP gallery and CASE a card that you love. (CASE means to "Copy and Share with Everyone" or something else but I don't like to think of it that way).

2) Change at least 2 of the things on the card... color combination, embellishments, image, etc.

3) Mention what it is about the card that you really love.

4) Be sure to link to the original card and give credit where credit is due so that you are not "Copying and Stealing Everything".

You have until next Tuesday night to make your card using Paper Pretties stamps and upload it to the Weekly Challenge Gallery (use keyword PWC91) at Paper Pretties.

I had a hard time deciding which card to CASE. The Prettie Girls are ALL really talented and to narrow it down to just one was tough! It took a couple of days but I finally decided on this adorable card by Julie Masse.

What I love about this card is what she did to the sketch that was used as the inspiration for this layout. She turned it on its side! I also love that she used the darling "Snow Snuggles" image for a Valentine's card.
Here's the sketch that we had used for PWC , hosted by Frances:

Here is my CASE of Julie's card:

I changed the image to the Crafty Emergency set. (Crafty Emergency and Game On are on sale this week for 20% off and as an added treat our Queen & Company tabs are on for 35% off!)
I also changed the knitted hearts to buttons with heart blings. Instead of heart brads, I used small pink heart blings. Julie had used circle nesties and I opted for square nesties.

It's time to hop over to visit Jennifer Greco to see what she has come up with for this CASE challenge!

I'm looking forward to seeing who you decide to case!
