My First Post as a Sassy Studio Designs Design Team Member!

Can you tell how thrilled and excited I am to be part of the Sassy Studio Designs Design Team?  I do think I've gone over the top even for me!  One thing that is bringing me down to earth is a cause and my soap box.  As you know, October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and over at the Sassy Studio Designs group at Paper Craft Planet, the Fabulous Friday Freebie is a gorgeous image called Support A Cause.  This free image is only going to be available for 24 hours so make sure you go over and join the group to get her!  It may sound odd but I'm so excited that my first project as a member of the SSD Design Team deals with bringing some more awareness to this cause.  Here's my take on her:


Isn't she stunning?  And doesn't she look like she can fight like a girl?  I love her!  She's confident, strong and determined to kick the ---- out of cancer.  I love her for that.  Cancer has taken the lives of people I love dearly and I've watched one of my aunts back in the 70's fight and survive this vile thing and I so admire the people who fight it tooth and nail.

Now about Miss Thing!  She's colored with my copic markers and yep, I used my stickles on the bow and Diamond Glaze on her belt and lips.  The pearls are from Studio 112 and I have some pink glitter tape on the band.  I used my Martha Stewart branch punch with the flowers from Reflections, and the paper is a paper pack from Mambi.  Here's a side view of her.


Until today, it never dawned on me how much I'd been missing out by not finishing the inside of my cards!


And here's her gorgeous face.  if you look really close, you can see pink written on the paper.  I love the colors of autumn but in October, it's all about the pink!


Here's a picture of the inside for Judy.  I used some Wild Honey Distressed Ink around the writing area.


I am entering this cutie in the following challenges:

Sweet Sketch Wednesday

Make sure to hop over to the Sassy Studio Designs blog and see the gorgeous, inspiring and heartfelt cards that some of my talented design team buddies have made.  I don't want you to miss them.  And for the month of October, think and remember pink.  Always remember the pink.
