Simply Sassy Spotlight!!

Hi friends...I am so honored to have been invited by the very talented Maria Therese to be "spotlighted" on the Simply Sassy Blog! Thank you so much!! I have been a big, big fan of Simply Sassy stamps since they first became available at Funky Kits last year! So this is the little cutie I created especially for my moment in the Sassy Spotlight...

This little cutie is called "Spread your wings" and, since I wanted to do a Shabby Chic-type card, I thought she'd be perfect!

DPs are from my stash...pearl flourish is from ZVA Creatives...and that fun spool of thread and dress form are from Susana's Custom Art & Card Design. Oh...and that yummilicious metal filagree is from Wild Orchid Crafts. I "shabbied" everything up with a little Tim Holtz Crackle Paint...here are a couple of close-ups of these cool little embellies!

If you'd like to take a peek at some of my other Simply Sassy cards...and read a little about me...please pop on over to the amazingly fun Simply Sassy Blog. If you aren't already a follower...please do sign up. Those incredibly talented girls on the Design Team are always coming up with fun projects and tutorials. Go check it out, won't you? And, don't forget to check out the entire line of Simply Sassy stamps at Funky Kits.

Thanks so much for stopping by to visit. Thanks, too, for all your encouragement and constructive feedback! Crafters rock!!! Virtual hugs...until next time....
