It's my farewell post....

Happy Friday, Simply Sassy Fans!

It really seems like yesterday when I got the happy email from Maria Therese asking if I'd join the Sassy girls for  a guest spot and now it's over much too soon! *tears* I had a blast designing with the sassy girls during these past 2 releases - they are so much fun and sweet to be around. I'm keeping my fingers crossed to be asked to come back some day! :D I will always be a Simply Sassy fan and will continue to use them often so be sure to stop by my blog any time for more inspiration. :D

For my final inspiration card today, I just HAD to ink up Rupunzel! I loved her from the moment I saw her and that was the first set where I bought ALL 6 of them at once! I know, I couldn't help myself! :D So, when making a birthday card for my daughter last week, this stamp definitely was the one to use because of her long beautiful hair. My daughter, 1. LOVES the movie Tangled and 2. Has pretty long hair herself! I colored Rupunzel using copics and gave her dark brown hair and hazel eyes like my daughter and a fabulous red dress because my daughter's favorite color is red. Now, I have to say here, that while I was making this card it was daughter's birthday was the next day (I am NEVER one to make a card too early, LOL) and I put a big giant 5 on it and took this pic when I was all done. THEN I went to show it to my hubby and he looks at it, then looks at me and says "What's the 5 for?" to which I immediately exclaim "Oh My GAWD, she's 6!!!" LOL So, thankfully it was just easy peasy to switch out this sticker for the one that said 6 but I just didn't photograph it again. haha I think I was just in a little bit of denial that my firstborn is growing up so fast! Now, when she saw the CORRECT card, she literally gasped and said "I love it, mom!" Now, THAT was the best reaction. :D She's by far my BIGGEST fan!

So, that is my final post. I am sad but so happy to have had this amazing opportunity to design for Simply Sassy stamps. It truly was an honor and one I will cherish always! Like I said, I have fallen hard for these adorable images, they have even worked their way up to my top 3 stamp loves for sure! I am just thrilled that Krista shares with us her art in this way so we can all enjoy her images for years and years! :D

  4. Delightfully characterful face & I love the red dress with those shoes & socks - hope your little girl had a lovely day (I had to chuckle at your story). I've loved seeing your tutorials on video too & it's been great seeing your style applied to the Sassies. All the best & thanks for all you've given in time, effort & inspiration.
