Merry Christmas Sassy Fans

Hey there, how has your Sunday been so far?! It has been dull and miserable here all day. I'm sooo tired today, I didn't get to sleep til after 2:30am last night after I had tossed and turned. I might have mentioned I've started reading a new book - oh how I've missed reading. It's called Blood Harvest by S. J. Bolton and it's a horror/ghost (not 100% sure yet..), what else!? I love it, but boy does it make me look over my shoulder more than I should! LOL. Anywho, you may be wondering about the title of the post?!

Well, as most of you know it was the launch of the Simply Sassy Christmas Blog Hop yesterday morning, if you haven't joined in on the hop yet see this post HERE and get on your way!! Comment on all DT blogs and you will be in with a chance of winning all 6 stamps from this set!!

For my Sunday inspiration for you Sassy Fans I have used a stamp from the latest release.. Secret Santa, she is available HERE at Funky Kits along with the other 5 new Sassys.

I stepped waaay, waaaay out of my comfort zone for this card. I decided to create a 'Centre Step Card', Soo impressive but soo easy to construct. I think I need to work on how I decorate each of the panels though, as the card looks a little plain to me.

I have coloured her hair and skin using Copics and her clothes etc using PM's - you know the deal by now, right? I have used paper from Basic Grey - Eskimo Kisses collection along with some Garden Green cardstock from SU! to mat. I have used a stamp from Paper Makeup Stamps for the sentiment along the bottom strip.

To embellish I have used one of my own clay rose doodads along with some roses from WOC. The gorgeous pink twill stripe ribbon is from The Ribbon Girl. Each time I finish up a card and I look back on it, I always think, damnnn, I wish I had added a charm. I have like 5000 and I always forget to use them *hits self on forehead*

You know what I've just noticed?! This is another pink and green Christmas card I've made. Gosh. For someone who isn't massive on pink I ain't doing too bad, am I?!

Thanks for stopping by today - me thinks I will enter this into the Simply Sassy FB challenge - more than one fold! That worked out okay, heehee. Now I just gotta find an envelope this will fit into!! I feel another envelobox project coming on! LOL.

I'm off to read a little more of my book ;) then get creating a few cards from my GDT spot over at SOS! Challenges.. which finishes soon! :(

Over & Out, xo Lou.

  5. I like the way that doodad colour emphasizes her brunette hair & brown shoes. Ever so effective. I can't read those kinds of books at alll - just too much horror........ to allow sleep.
