Oh So Sweet N Sassy and SWEET STUFF!!!!!

Hello, everyone and happy day to you!! I hope you are having a delightful weekend and best wishes for a great week, too. The weather in these Blue Ridge Mountains has been so beautiful and I am really into the planting and digging in the dirt mode.

I would like to share with you a card I made for my posting day (First Monday - tomorrow) over at the Whimsy Stamps Inspirations Blog. I hope you will drop over and visit with us there.



For my card today I have used the absolutely darling Sweet N Sassy image illustrated by the incomparable Elisabeth Bell for the Little Cottage Cuties Collection for Whimsy Stamps. And isn't she the epitome of SPRING and SUMMER!!!! She was colored with Copics and Promarkers, adding a touch of Wink of Stella for her belt buckle. The base and all double matting is Bazzill and the DP is from the Damask Rose Collection by Jennifer Ellory. The top corner pieces are by Prima and for the horizontal I have used organza ribbon tied into a double flat bow and topped with a gingham button. The Self-Adhesive Pearls and all flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts:


It has been a very long time since I have participated in a challenge, but I would like to bite the bullet and toss my card into the May challenge at Kit and Clowder Challenge where the requirement is FLOWERS. How fun is that?!?!

SWEET STUFF!!!


I have TWO extra little Sweet N Sassy stamps who are searching for a wonderful new home. All you have to do is leave a comment before Wednesday, May 7 at 8 AM EDT and you will be in for the draw...Good Luck!!

Thank you all so much for dropping by and I hope to see you again real soon!! Until the next time, enjoy each moment!! Hugs!!
