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

Isn't she fabulous and powerful?  She is Wonder Regan and she's from Sassy Studio Designs.  I'm so excited to show her off and to be a new member of the super talented and so generous of spirit Design Team of Pause Dream Enjoy Challenge!  Make sure you stop over and take a look at all of the fun and inspiring projects they all have worked up for you!

Since Dizzy Lizzy Creations does some gorgeous tiles, I thought I'd do a moziac themed card for you.  I've colored Wonder Regan with copic markers and used Stickles all over her!  I added some gold Smooch to the stars and my Clear Star Jelly Roll pen on her magic rope.  She's cut out using my nestabilities and I used distressed ink in Wild Honey.  The papers are from Bewitched by DCWV and Paper Pizzaz.  The gems are from my stash.

Here is a side view of my card.

Doesn't she have the most gorgeous and determined look on her face?  I think she could do some serious crime fighting!  My good friend, Judy, is on vacation, but I'm showing my insides for her to see when she gets back.

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Make sure to stop by our Pause Dream Enjoy Challenge Blog and see what my designing buddies have in store for you.  I know you won't be dissappointed!  And while you're there, join our challenge and show us your purple and orange!

Christmas Present

OK, so I finally get to share some news with everyone that I've been keeping quiet for a little while.  Did you ever really, really want something for a really long time but didn't ever try for it?  That's what happened with me.  I've always had a love for those stamps and images that have had some type of attitude and a sense of fun and sass about them.  I found them in a few companies but never had the guts to really concentrate on presenting them the way they deserved.  I've always loved Sassy Studio Designs and when Lindsay had a Design Team call, I put my heart and soul into my submission and here I am!  I'M A SASSY GAL!  Yep, I can now official say I'm a Design Team member of Sassy Studio Designs!  

They presented us with a very sexy, sassy image called Christmas Present and here's my take on her:

Isn't she just gorgeous?  I colored her with copics and used distressed inks around the edges.  The flowers and pearls are from Reflections and the papers are from Authentique and I used stickles on her bow and other parts, and I used my oval Spellbinders.

Here's this beauty close up.

I think she even looks good from the side!

This picture shows the dimensions with the flowers and the bows.

And my dear friend Judy has the nerve to go on vacation and while she's gone, I'm still thinking about her by showing off the inside and wishing her a safe and happy trip!

Please make sure to check the other talented and inspiring Design Team Members over at Sassy Studio Designs.  I'm so excited and thrilled to be working with them and can't wait to just start showing you how sassy I can really be!

Tuesday Throwdown - Cute and Cuddly

Welcome to another Tuesday Throwdown Challenge!  This weeks challenge is being sponsored by Robyn's Fetish Digital Stamps and More and the theme this week is cute and cuddly.  How much stinkin fun is that?  I was flipping through the channels on my tv and had to stop and watch "The Mummy" with Brendan Fraser and this little cutie popped right on to my paper for me to color up!

Isn't he just way too cute?  I think he's adorable and with him saying, "It's scary out here!", I would just scoop him up and cuddle him to death!

He's colored with Spectrum Noir pens and the button is from Heidi Grace and the baker's twine is from my stash.  The papers are from DCWV's Bewitched packet and Paper Pizzaz.  The amber half dots are from Studio 112.  And believe it or not, I didn't use any stickles!

Here's a side view.

 And another side:

But look at this sweet face!  If I saw that witch flying around on her broom and that black cat sitting on the rail of a haunted house, I'd be scared too!  And my wrap is falling off!  He's in some serious trouble!

Here is the inside.  I love this moon!  It's just spooky!

Make sure that you stop by the Tuesday Throwdown blog and see what my oh so talented design team sisters have in store for you!  They never fail to inspire and impress me!  So put your cute and cuddly on and come over and play with our challenge.  We love to see what you create!
