Challenge #17 for Mother's Day

Well it is another "Dare to be Sassy Thursday" at Sassy Studio Designs, challenge #17, and the theme is "Mother's Day". My mom LOVES the sun and the beach so I was inspired to make this stair fold card. This card was fun to make, I made her bikini all sparkly with Stickles, and it was fun to make the waves and the sun!

I am so excited, this will be MY first Mother's Day too. My baby is only 5 months old, but I am still excited and feel loved and so happy to be a mommy! Happy Mother's Day to all the Mom's out there!

Sha-zam! - Dare to be Sassy Challenge #16

It's Dare to Be Sassy Thursday Challenge #16. This week's challenge is a color challenge using black, white, and one other color of your choice! I chose red to be the other color!! I love that color combo black, white and red! I had so much fun dressing up this sassy lady - made her shoes, hat and bodice sparkly red. For her cane, I added a red jewel to give it some pizazz!! Enjoy!

"Take Time to Relax" with wine and a sunset...

I have entered another challenge at the "Sassy Studio Designs" blog, challenge #12. This week the challenge is to make a creation using a butterfly and a flower. Now, at the moment all my SASSY images that I have are all "indoor" images and to me butterflys and flowers means outdoors. Soooo, I thought outside of the box and came up with this...

I took my Sassy image and cut the girl out (originally she is lazing in a chair drinking wine), then a made a photo of a porch swing into clipart and colored it in and then I made my creation! It is a little wall hanging. I made it too big to be a card, LOL!!! But you know I thought it was a good little inspiration wall hanging, we should always be reminding ourselves to "Take time to Relax". The background is supposed to be a "at dusk" sky, and you can't see them too well, but I did use spots of silver stickles for the stars that are JUST appearing!!!

Hope you enjoy this and wish me luck with the challenge!!! I just LOVE entering these contests, I may not win, but it sure inspires me! Cheers for now!

Warm up with some Sassy and Hot Chocolate!!!

Lately I have gotten into purchasing Digital stamps as they are a lot cheaper than actual stamps! I have found some great sites and one of them is called "Sassy Studio Designs". I have also joined their blog and this week they have put a challenge up to make a card with a pocket and some flowers and whomever wins can get some FREE digi's. So here is the "card" I made.

My card is actually a little gift holder for a pkg. of hot chocolate! I found the template on SCS HERE . My flowers are the White flower brads but in a way they do look like snowflakes. The other spots are flakes of snow using "flower soft snow". My sentiment is from a SU Christmas set. Enjoy and wish me luck! tee hee
