Tuesday Spotlight..

This Tuesday we have sweet 

This post is quite a long one.. so go grab your cup of coffee or tea because you don't want to miss this girl..
I asked her to make something new for the Spotlight 
She has made us this fantastic cupcake, card and door-hanger ♥♥♥ 
+ I've grabbed some gorgeous cards from her blog too..

Don't you just want to eat that cupcake???

And a yummy card that matches the cupcake♥♥
Image she's using on the card is Sundae service

and a gorgeous door-hanger using Tiffany
 Any girl would love having this on their door ♥

*Start by telling us a little about you:
I am a 35 yr old wife & mother to 3 children. Funny when one asks to say a bit about themselves, we start with our age.....weird eh? I say eh, as I am from Canada (Manitoba actually) and I DON"T live in an igloo. My children are 10 yrs (girl), 4 yrs (boy) and 20 mnth old (boy). I also work as a part time Registered Nurse. I craft til the wee hours of the morning, so no one can bother me. haha! I'm sneaky like that!

*When did you start card making and what made you start?

Uhh...I blame it all on my neighbor & BFF. There I was merrily making my scrapbooks when she pops over and says "OMG you have to see this card I just made at card class".....the same card class I said NO to in the first place. Well, I was hooked. That was **thinking**.....2008.
One thing led to another, first came SU, then CTMH, then digis. What the heck was a 'digi'....EEK!!
Then I found blogland and well, the rest is history! 

Using Lost in Thoughts  and Skater Girl  

*What is your preferred coloring medium?
I color my faces and, as of recently, hair with copics. My copic selection is meager. LOL I gave hubby my Christmas list already....."copics"....done! I also color with watercolor pencils, blending stumps and baby oil. Nope the baby oil does not get the paper all oily. The blending stumps (dipped in baby oil soaked sponges) carries the color so nicely..my heart skips a beat just thinking about it. Not quite sure what I mean?....can't really picture it? see this post HERE on my blog.

*What is your fav Simply Sassy stamp?
oooo.......hhmmmm.........like just one?!! Well, since I only recently got addicted to them & I drool at each of the DT creations.....geesh...I'd have to say "High School Student".....& I don't even own her!!! Funny right?!! I thought the "So What" girl from the last set woulda got me, but rather my fave from that release is actually "Tiffany".

*How did you notice the Simply Sassy stamps the first time?
Donna Mosley. Yup. She was in the spotlight here & I thought "hey, that's a nice stamp"......what the heck am I missing right? One hop led to another hop & boom.....here I am! Buying each new release. (Another Christmas present list item) heehee

*What is your favourite style (card making)?
Embellish, Embellish, Embellish. Rule of thumb......if all else fails, embellish. No style imparticular, I like to try everything at least once including 3D items. In fact this is the first time I have attempted to make a cupcake! lol LOVE IT!! And just when I thought I came up with the cupcake idea all by my lonesome, I remembered seeing Kathrin's SCRUMMY sundae dish a short while ago!!
See....inspiration has seeped it's way into my brain! 

*And what would you love to see more of at the Simply Sassy blog?
hhmmmmmmmmm.......boy cards. I seem to be drawn to boy images & stamps. They are the first to catch my eye. Oh & my Sassy on the header......I'd love to see THAT everyday I visit!! LOL
(I'll just keep trying out like every other die hard Sassy Fanatic)!!
