A Boy's Birthday

It's preview time.  Paper Pretties is previewing the March releases.  This is so much fun for me.  I've seen the stamp sets but I haven't seen what the rest of the DT has done with them yet so I'll be hopping over to the Paper Pretties blog to see it all.

I don't know about you but I struggle with cards for boys and men.  I'm drawn to images that are more girly so I was thrilled to receive this goofy (I mean that in the most complimentary way possible) giraffte stamp.  Isn't it just FUN!  It can easily be made into a girl or a boy's card, it's just a matter of switching your colors, maybe adding some sweet embellishments for a girl's card.  AND the set comes with sentiments that can be used for an invitiation.   

Here's the deets:
stamp - Paper Pretties - "Party Giraffe"
ink - Memento "Tuxedo Black"; Memento "Cottage Ivy" for sentiment; Versafine "Toffee" inside image
paper - Stampin' Up rich regals cs; Georgia Pacific white cs for image and sentiment; K & Co, "Daydreams" dp
miscellaneous - copics; charm; SU hemp twine; SU oval and scalloped oval punches; Nesites oval and scalloped ovals; Martha Stewart border punch; stickles

don't forget the inside
Here's the challenges:
Terrifically Thrilling Thursday - Layers, Layers, Lots of Layers 
Charisma Cards #9 - 4 legged friends
4 Crafty Chicks - #27 - stitching
Creative Belli #112 - Animals
Going Grey  with Scrap Creations - Kids

A new Paper Pretties set will be previewed every day from now till Wednesday March 9 when we'll have a blog hop to celebrate the March release. Stop by each day so you won't miss a thing.  Here's the link to Paper Pretties.
