Look at me...I'm "sassy"

Hi friends...oooohhh...I'm soooo excited!! Guess what? Sassy Cheryl (of the famed "Sassy Cheryl's Digis") has invited me to join her amazingly talented Design Team...and, of course, I nearly tripped over my tongue saying "YES, YES, YESSSSSSSS!!" So there ya have it...I'm "Sassy"!  (My sweet hubby has always said I was sassy...but that's different!! LOL!) And I'm so honored to be joining the ranks of some of the most talented designers in blogdom! Plus...I soooo love Cheryl's whimsical images!! I know...I'm babbling...on to my first Sassy Cheryl DT project!!

This week's hostess is the very talented, Jeni!! She's chosen a really fun theme for all of us...

"Not your usual fold"

Cool, huh?!! Soooo...here's what I came up with...hope you like it...

I just learned how to make a "Criss Cross" fold card...(Tutorial HERE) so I thought it would be a perfect way to showcase this darling little Sassy Cheryl image called "A Mother's Day Heart (girl)" available HERE at Sassy Cheryl's Digis. Here's a close-up...

Now, I swear, I am NOT an orange person...but I sure seem to be gravitating towards orange DPs lately! LOL!! These DPs are from KI Memories' Princess Collection...and I have to admit, I quite like the pink and orange together!! Actually, the cardstock isn't pink, it's Melon Mambo (from Stampin' Up)...but I thought it played so well off of the orange!! I also added a little Certainly Celery CS (also from SU). I used Oval nestabilities (plain and scalloped) as well as a Cuttlebug embossing folder for the "dotted swiss" design on the inside.

Martha Stewart helped me out with some of her edge and corner punches...and the sentiment came from Stamping Bella. Flowers are a combo of Prima and Wild Orchid Crafts...and the green ric-rac is from my stash.

Copics used to color this cutie patootie are:
E21, 00, 000: Skin
R20: Cheeks
E25, 23, 21, YR20: Hair
YR04, 02, 01, 00, 000: Dress & Hairbows
R85, 83, 81, RV10, 00, 000: Heart
C7, 5, 3, 1, 00: Shoes
G24, 21, 20: Grass

And here's one last photo...the "artsy fartsy" view...

So...I'll bet you can guess what comes next! Yep, it's time to pop on over to Sassy Chery's Challenge Blog HERE to check out all of the gorgeous work by my new DT sistahs!! (I do love the way that sounds!! hehe!) And then, pull out your own craft supplies and choose one (or more, if you like) of Sassy Cheryl's images (You can find them at Sassy Cheryl's Digis HERE) and get busy creating your own paper masterpiece with a "unique" fold!!

Have fun, sweet friends...and thanks so much for stopping by for a visit. Until next time...
