There I go again

Geez, the holidays have DEFINITELY been a hectic time this year! :) I am sooooo sorry but I forgot to post my card for this week's Dare to be Sassy Thursday challenge, and I have GOT to share my take on Sassy Flash Dance with you! :)

There IS a back story to the card... My darling friends have been encouraging me to go back to the gym, and for the past month and a half we have had a "crew" of six women working out at five AM together for a time of encouragement, sweat, and (gasp!) fun... It was rough going at first, I won't lie. But now it has truly become not only a routine, but an important part of my day! So this card is for my darling friend Jen who has lost over seventy five pounds since she started her weight loss journey a year ago. The inside reads "New You" and she is DEFINITELY a new model of herself... So if she's reading my blog right now I have ruined the surprise, but this card was definitely made as a tribute to her hard work and dedication! :)

SOOOO head on over to the Sassy Studios blog to play along with this week's challenge "Ring in the New Year" and happy scrapping!

If you believe...

Hey blogland, WHERE is the time going? I don't know about you, but I have been crazy hectic busy these past few days and today was my first "do nothing" day in a LONG time... And then at 3:55 PM I was reminded that I was SUPPOSED to be at a Christmas party at 3:00!! But since we are all fighting colds, I had to avoid sharing our germs and stay home some more... :) I'm sad I missed the party, but it has been SUCH a week (or two!!).

ANYWHOOOOO... It's been so crazy that I forgot to post my card for this week's Dare to Be Sassy Thursday challenge at Sassy Studio Designs (shame on me!). This week's challenge is glitter and shine, and I cracked out my stickles and bling to glisten Tink up! :)

Tinkerbell was colored with copics (of course!). I used E000, E00, E11, and E04 for her skin, E50, YR21 and Y17 for her hair, and YG07, YG41 for her dress. Oh, and her wings are colored with BG000 and then stickled. And I TOTALLY used my stash this time around... The patterned paper is from Creative Memories circa forever ago, and the "Believe" sentiment is also a Creative Memories piece that has been looming in my stash since I first took scissor to paper... 

Thanks for stopping by and have a beautiful day!! :)

Have a Holly Jolly Christmas!!

Hey there bloggers! Me again with a quick Sassy post for ya! This week's Dare To Be Sassy challenge is "Christmas" and I have a Sassy Santa to show off today! :)

I made the treat box using Cricut's Close to My Heart Artiste cartridge and colored in Sassy Santa with copics for a quick and easy treat box. I put a piece of plastic transparency on the opening of the box and I will try to fill it with goodies for Melanie's teacher before the holidays are over! :) As much as Christmas is rushing toward us, I'm beginning to get the panic that comes in a week before shopping should be done and I realize I am only halfway done... I can't think about it because I will get anxiety, lol! :)

Wishing you a Holly Jolly day!

PS, I will be submitting this one to the following challenges:
Crafty Girls (Anything Goes)
Creative Knockouts (Tis the Season)
Dream it up (Holidays in a hurry)

Tis the season...

HEY there blogland! I do hope the holiday season has not left you melancholy or sad... Instead, I wish only happy things for you and yours! :)

This month's challenge at Card Makin' Mamas is focused on Christmas, and we had the chance to use some awesome images from Bugaboo Stamps... I played with JJ Christmas Cheers for some laughs...

I loved the cheekiness of this lil gal, and I HAD to glossy accent up the martini class for added dimension! :)

I will be submitting this lovely lady to the Anything Goes challenge at Anonymous Stamps and The Cheerful Stamp Pad's Signs of Christmas Challenge. Thanks so  very much for swinging by and have a wonderful, blessed holiday season! :)

Onto the Christmas Cards!!

Hello there again bloggers and happy Monday (really?) I soooo enjoyed my relaxing weekend and I am dreading going back to work today... BUT I'll keep holding onto the fact that we have a longer Christmas break this year! :) I never knew that teachers looked as forward to Christmas break as the kids did until I myself became a teacher! :)

Anywhoo... this week's challenge at Craft Your Passion is to incorporate WASHI Tape!! I know I've said this before, but of course I HAVE Washi in my collection... I mean, a real horder has EVERYTHING she does and doesn't need! :) BUT I rarely use it (although I HAVE been meaning to wrap some around my iPhone charger so I don't lose it... EVERYONE has the same charger these days lol! :)

SOOOO, I whipped out some candy colored washi and paired it up with these cuties from 2 Cute Ink:

And now I'm ready to go make Christmas cookies!! :) (Hey, who needs to go to work anyway???) :) Thanks for stopping by and have a WONDERFUL holiday season!!
