Paper Pretties Monday Challenge - Stripes!

Welcome to our thirtieth Paper Pretties Monday Challenges! That's right! Each week we will be releasing new images PLUS hosting a challenge so that you can play right along with us too!

Thank you so much for joining in our last challenge! Now, let's pick a winner from our "Going Green" Challenge. Our winner is Entry #49, Deb Neerman! You win your choice of 3 digi stamps of your choice from our store! Please send an email with your digi choices to hlrcrafts at hotmail dot com!

This week our challenge is to use the theme of "Stripes"! Just create any project that uses stripes! Now, we have a HUGE news today, we are adding a new illustrator to the team!
Please welcome our newest illustrator Fawn Palmer! Here is a little info Fawn shared with us about herself:"As long as I can remember, I have loved to draw. I can remember as a child sitting for hours and drawing. I still love sitting for hours and drawing. I had to put it on hold once I began having children. And I recently picked it up again. I have four amazing adult children. Megan is 28, Nichole is 23, Kelsey is 19 and my baby boy Bradley is 17. I also have 4 furry babies. Daphnee, Junno, Cee Cee and Berlynn. I am lucky to be married to an amazing man (he would have to be, to put up with me!) and we have been married for 24 years. I have lived in Utah my whole life. Besides drawing, I enjoy anything to do with spending time with my family, boating, camping and enjoying the outdoors. In my spare time, I also enjoy card making, scrap booking, jewelry making, painting ceramics, drawing with color pencils (portraits mostly), water coloring, acrylic painting, sewing, woodworking, and basically anything that has to do with paper or crafting. I also recently became a digital stamp artist for Squigglefly and enjoy it very, very much! I hope you will enjoy my images as much as I have creating them. Enjoy!"

This week in celebration of adding Fawn to the Paper Pretties family, we are offering her "Party Dress" image as a freebie! If you would like to receive this image please email us at hlrcrafts at and we will get it sent out to you.

One random lucky participant this week will win 3 Paper Pretties Digis of your choice". You do not need to use Paper Pretties stamps in order to play along, but if you do, you will get a bonus entry into the drawing! Please be sure to mention our challenge and link back to the Paper Pretties blog in your project posting. When uploading to SCS or PCP please use keyword PPMC30. Please be sure to link up your project at the bottom of this post!

Now it is time to share with all of you our two newest Digi Whatnot images, and you are going to love them! Please welcome our newest Digis (we have 2 this week!): Balloon Girl, Party Dress, Peekaboo, and Welcome from Fawn Palmer plus Tirel Tiger and Zebediah Zebra from ARTish!
You may notice that the new images are now part of a set, that's right our Digis now come with matching sentiments! You have asked for sentiments that would coordinate with our images and we have heard you! Now let's check out the fabulous samples our design team has cooked up to share with all of you!


  1. Like the striped DT creations. Want to ask what

    'uses these three colors'

    Does the entry have to have 3 different colors besides being the theme which this wk is Stripes?

    This week our challenge is to use the theme of "Stripes"! Just create any project that is uses these three colors!

    "Sunshine HoneyBee"

    1. I think that they probably use the same template each time but have forgotten to remove that little bit from this challenge. That's how I've taken it, could be wrong though lol

  2. Thanks for the great theme, I've been meaning to scrap this picture for a while but never got around to it. I hope it follows your rules, I seem to be a bit dim and can't find them on the blog. If it doesn't meet the criteria please feel free to delete image 7. :-) xx

  3. Love the work from the DT! The zebra is adorable!
