Simply A Lot ;o)

Hi everyone, you know how I say that the weeks are flying by and it seems I'm here with a new post like every five minutes? Well, this week went realllly slow, we had a national holiday here on Thursday and since then I've been a little out of sorts, getting my days muddled up... I've also got tomorrow off so hopefully I'll think to go to work on Tuesday ;o)!

Anyway, blablabla, I do go on don't I ;o) Today I made a little something different for you, using not one but three Simply Sassy cuties! Why do you ask? Well, there's a new release coming up (and can I just say the new stamps are beyond gorgeous!!) and I still had three stamps from the previous set sitting unused, uninked and scratch that, never unloved ;o) on my worktop so decided to put together this card.

As the paper is quite busy I put all my embellishments on the front of the card and left the inside bare of everything but some labels and texts. I hope it works and that you likey!

Materials I used:
Simply Sassy stamps, available from Funky Kits
sentiments by Papertrey Ink and Hero Arts
Paper: Bazzill Basics cardstock white; Elzybells cardstock kraft;
My Mind's Eye paper pad Stella and Rose "Hattie"
Embellishments: Kars adhesive pearls; Papertrey Ink ribbon; Karen Foster scrapper's floss; Heidi Swapp ghost shape; Zva Creative pearl swirls; We R Memory Keepers eyelets
Tools: We R Memory Keepers Crop-a-Dile; EK Success Retro Flower Punches; Martha Stewart Doily Lace punch
E00, E51, E93, E21 (skin, cheeks)
Y28, E53, E50 (hair)
BG10, BG11, BG13, BG15 (clothes)
T0, T2, T4 (clothes)

Right, that's all from me this week, be sure to check back regularly as some of my very talented DT teamies will be hosting sneek peaks during the coming week!!!

Hope you have a great week, thanks for stopping by :D
