Just a little Sass and the City!

The stampers over at Sassy Studio Design are celebreating having over 700 members in their group over at Paper Craft Planet and are having a progressive Sass and the City Challenge. I missed the deadline to get my Charlotte Sassy in, but they are so generous that they are giving those of us who picked up the freebie a second chance to win a free Sassy stamp or two! Hop on over and look at their great creations!

I hope everyone has a good friend that they can share things with. I've got several that I've gotten back in touch with from my younger days and thinking about some of the escapades we got into brings a smile to my heart. Everyone needs someone like Charlotte in their life to give them hope, encouragement, and the sunny outlook on everything. Hope springs eternal with her! The pearl in my life is my good, dear friend Lynn.  She's always on my side and wants nothing but the best for me.  I love you my sweet friend.   Here's my take on Charlotte Sassy:

This is one of my favorite TV series! What these friends went through was phenominal and just like every day life. Friends share their ups and downs, triumphs and failures, giving their support and honest opinion, and loving each other unconditionally. Plus their gorgeous! I have friends like them, people who I can count on and I thank God for them every day. Here's a close up of Charlotte:

I love the sweetness and sincerity in her face. I love that Charlotte wears pearls so much. They are my favorites so I gave her a pearl earring and added some to the corners. I also put a couple on the inside and you can get a peek here:

The paper is from Basic Grey, she's colored with copics (been practicing a lot with them!), and I embossed the background papers with my cuttlebug. Love that baby!  I used some Diamond Glaze on her shoes and the top of her dress, and you know I had to put some Stickles on her to give her a shot of bling!

I hope you enjoy her as much as I had creating her.  Now go tell that special friend of yours how much she means to you!
