We're so BLUE at Sassy Cheryl's this week!

Happy Tuesday, my lovelies!! It's time for another fun challenge at Sassy Cheryl's Challenge Blog!! This week's hostess is the sweet and very clever (and, oh so sassy) Miz Ann! And she's chosen a color theme for this week's challenge! And that color is . . . you guessed it . . .
Blue!

And here's what I came up with . . . 


I've been playing a bit with Distress Inks these past several days and thought this adorable "Maddie" image would be perfect for my card this week . . . especially since she looks sort of "vintage-y" in that adorable hat!! Here's a close-up . . . 


Soooo . . . if you haven't visited Sassy Cheryl's brand new online store HERE, then you're in for a real treat! Sassy Cheryl has included my beloved Sassy Sally . . . and Noah and Charlie and snowmen in the new store . . . AND she's added this little darlin' named Maddie! (Move over Sally . . . you've got a bit of competition here with this cutie patootie!) hehe!! This image is called "Beauty in the Making" and is available HERE in Sassy Cheryl's new shop! Oooooh...and this is so cool . . . the new digi images are coming with additional "goodies" (like the sentiment . . . and the notes inside . . . plus some very cool shoes). Here's a side-ish view . . .


My card "recipe" . . .
Image printed on 90# Hot Pressed watercolor paper by Canson
Tim Holtz Distress Ink - reinkers and pads
All edges inked with Pumice Stone DIs
Whisper White cardstock: Stampin' Up
DPs: "Vintage Summer Basics" from Maja Designs
Rectangle dies: Spellbinders
Heart tag die: Magnolia
Doily die: Cheery Lynn Dies
Queen Blue Seam Binding: The Ribbon Girl
Tim Holtz filmstrip
Flowers & metal corners: Wild Orchid Crafts
Pearls and lace: My stash

I thought a card as "vintage"-looking as this required a "vintage" sentiment . . . what'cha think of this one? (hehehe!!) . . .


And,of course . . .


Sooooooo . . . how's that for BLUE? hehe! Now . . . please visit Sassy Cheryl's Challenge Blog to see what Sassy Ann and the rest of my talented DT "Sassettes" have created for this week's challenge!! Then, we'd love for you to pull out some of your own craft supplies and at least one Sassy Cheryl image and join us for this week's challenge! Oh, oh, oh . . . and don't forget . . .

One lucky participant, selected at random, will win . . .
TWO Sassy Cheryl Digi Images!

** Oh . . . and one more thing, Sassy Cheryl's will be discontinuing the Bargain Bins at MIDNIGHT on Thursday, February 28th! Soooooo . . . you still have time to get your hands on some of Sassy Cheryl's earlier works of art HERE. But hurry . . . the clock is ticking!

And that's it for me!! Thanks so much for stopping by . . . and, as always, for your very kind comments! Until next time . . . Hugs!

Pat, this is awesome GF, I love it when we all use the same image and make them sooo different. Love your soft outline of the image, it really changes the way the coloring appears, which as always is gorgemous. The sentiment is a riot, I have it as a SU stamp, always makes my LOL. Thanks for making my day :)
