Drum Roll, please!

Hi, everyone!
I bet you're wondering what the heck I mean by my post title today, aren't you?! What on earth could I possibly need a drum roll for???? all my excitement regarding my Bugaboo announcement the other day, I forgot to mention the reason behind the REST of my giddiness! I am now on the design team for Paper Pretties! Woohoo!!! Bet you didn't see that coming, did you?! lol!
Today is my "debut" for them! :0)

Every Monday, Paper Pretties has a digital image release and a challenge. They release two new images, complete with sentiments! This week they have this adorable mouse and hippo:
Zaza Zumba Hippo

Simmons the Mouse

 I chose to use the new release image, ZaZa Zumba Hippo on my card. I love Paper Pretties cuties - all of the new images include sentiments to go along with them, and I think that makes finishing a card just that much easier, don't you?! :0)

The challenge theme we need to have you follow this week is
Clean and Simple (CAS)
Head on over to the challenge blog to enter your CAS card! You could win three 
Paper Pretties Digis of your choice!

As many of you already know - CAS cards are not my favorite, but I tried! lol!
I always feel like they aren't "done"! lol!
I used up a bunch of scraps, including the card base. I added a few stickers from a cute pack by Ek Success Sticko that were given to me for Christmas.

.....And there you have it! :0)
Now make sure to check out the rest of the wonderful design team members of Paper Pretties, and
don't forget to stop by the store to pick up one of the new releases! The DT blog links are located in my left sidebar for you!
Thanks for stopping by today!
Happy Crafting!
