Week #132 @OSCC - Fairytale

I would like to say sorry to anyone who popped over to check out my DT work for this week by being late putting it up so here it is:

This is an easel card the inside is the same as outside so  have just shown the front, don't you think the papers are a bit lush? they are called Spring Feast by First Edition Papers, ribbon from stash, nesties, pink pearls and the lovely image from Sassy called Goldie Locks.

The Theme this week is Fairytale and we are being Sponsored by Sassy Studio's who have some beautiful Digi Stamps that are so easy to work with.

Sassy Studio Designs is a fresh new company. We have been designing and selling for a year now, and we have been kindly received into the community of digi stampers and crafters. I started designing images shortly after I started stamping, reason being...I didn't hardly like anything else out there I was a young adult woman at the time I was engaged, had no kids, I wanted fun sexy images that I would enjoy using and my friends and hubby would enjoy receiving. I designed images for 2 other digi stamp companies when my wonderful hubby kept trying to get me to go out on my own. So in June 2009 thanks to the few faithful followers I had, Sassy Studio Designs was born! It has been a wonderful journey starting my own store. We have just grown so much these past months.I still try to keep with my original philosophy and reason for designing stamps, make them fun and keep them sassy...and yes sometimes even sexy!

The lucky winner will receive....... 4 Digi's of they're choice

I would also like to thank my friend Julie for a lovely surprise of a award for my blog which she told me about at work which certainly brightened my day, I am posting it here for anyone to take if they want it as I awarded some earlier and I think they are still waiting to be picked up so please help yourself.

Week #129 @ OSCC

It must be the week-end again woo hoo, is it me or does the time seem to be flying by? I would like to say hello to everyone who takes time out of their busy schedules and also thank you I'm deeply touched. I would also like to say Happy 30th Birthday to Shelley from OSCC (the boss) I hope she has recovered from what sounds like a great birthday bash, she is also the lovely Hostess of this weeks challenge at OSCC the theme for this week is Birthdays (I wonder why ha ha), the Sponsors for this week are new to us & it would be great if you popped over to pay them a visit.

Limited Runs is known to some people as a calorie free sweet shoppe filled with over 80 different Cupcakes something for almost every occasion too but from sweets to fun and even some darker images cause I love Halloween so there is lots to see and play with and almost all digi's are $2.00 with only a few a little more (sets and Mega Digi's for Scrap bookers). Plus I've always got hidden deals thru out the store. When I started making cards I didn't know how addictive this could become and I've become hooked and who doesn't love a handmade anything these days. I've always been into drawing and this just a blend of my drawing and my hobby. May you enjoy my digi's as much as I love to make them, and stop by every Friday and pick up a Freebie but be quick cause who knows how long they will be a freebie for.

Now for my card I don't often blow my own trumpet & I'm usually the first to criticise my own work but today I am really pleased with the results & hope you all like it too, I got this idea from a Christmas card (I don't know if this shape card has a name) and liked the shape of it so I re-did it for everyday use.

I think I used K&Co pink papers, Tattered Rose Distress Inks, Prima flowers, peel-off music notes Birthday Sentiments from Craftwork Cards, Kenny K's Rock Chic image

Challenges I have entered:

craft your days away - MUSIC & DANCE
one stitch at a time challenge - Fancy Folds

Good morning to you all hope your all having a pleasant week-end & how many of you watched the wedding? I didn't get to see it until 8-30pm as I had to work all day, rushed home to watch it on demand (never thought to do it on the computer) didn't she look every bit a princess. Anyway back to task in hand I'm late blogging this due to a few hitches but over at Bows & Berries the forth challenge is Bold & Bright as a move away from pastels for a change, you can make anything bold & bright pastels will not be allowed OK.
