Bookmark Challenge

I'm back today to show you another Prettie Challenge. This one was issued by the amazing Charmaine Ikach and it was to do a bookmark. I thought it would be a great way to showcase all of the Sophias that we've done so far. This was my first try at doing scalloped circles, some came out pretty well but others not so much!:-) It is driving me crazy that the scallops on the circles don't completely line up, but what can you do. I have to ask, how do you ladies get those perfect scalloped circles? Is there a machine that does that or a special pair of scissors? Whatever it is I'm starting to feel as if I need it! Here is a picture of the front of the bookmark with a little bow as well as the back.

This bookmark will be on its way to Jana as soon as she moves into her new house in San Jose, just an hour from me!:-D I'm so hoping she'll let me do some real life stamping with her and teach me a few tricks;-)

I'm also going to show you the mother's day cards I did.

You may be wondering, why is she showing me mother's day cards now? I love the way they turned out if I do say so myself
:-), so I have to share them with somebody! I used the stamp we did awhile back called Simply Special. I thought it would be perfect for my mother's day cards. I love coloring this image. It is just so much fun to mix the prismacolors and make it look more like a painting. The two matching ones were done for my grandmothers and the long one was made for my mom. The grandmother cards are made from a sketch I found on Jen Del Muro's blog (I love her layouts!) and my mom's card was inspired by a sketch I found on Beate's blog.

Paper Pretties is releasing four more of our stamps tonight. I'm so excited about these stamps, in my opinion they are some of the cutest we've done so far and I can't wait to see what others think! Thanks for stopping by, hope you enjoyed my cards:-)
