Sally's shakin' it at Sassy Cheryl's

If you're looking for my latest Magnolia-licious DT project, please scroll down...

Hello again, my lovelies...it's time for another fabulous challenge at Sassy Cheryl's Challenge Blog!! The very sweet and talented Sassy Dawn is our "hostess with the mostest" again this week! And she's chosen a fabulous photo to inspire us all...oh...and, because it's October...we're still using PINK to support Breast Cancer Awareness!! Here's the photo...it's sooo cooooooool!!

So...la de da...a shopping I did go! Why? Well, three reasons...one, I can't help myself...two, there are so many fabulous NEW images over at Sassy Cheryl's Digi online store...and three, I NEED THEM ALL!! hehehe!! Here's my card for this week...hope you enjoy.... 

You may recognize "Sassy Sally"...she's one of Sassy Cheryl's little cuties. This one is called "The Forgotten Gift" and she's available HERE at Sassy Cheryl's. I love that facial expression...it just cracks me up!! hehehe!!  

I decided to focus on the fun patterns in Dawn's inspiration photo...so I pulled out this gorgeous DP from Basic Grey's Eskimo Kisses collection. I love these papers...they're such fun! And...since our granddauther, Sophie, has a birthday right around Christmas, I thought they'd be perfect for her birthday card! Soph will be 6 years old!! Here's a pic...she just lost her first tooth! Do ya think she'll be calling Sassy Sally "Thathy Thally"?! LOL!!

Isn't Soph a doll?!! We sure think so!! She told me that she wants a mustache for Christmas because she thinks it will help her perfect her British accent! hehehe!! So, of course, we bought her a mustache! LOL! Hopefully I'll have a pic of Soph with her mustache for next's week's post! hehehe!! OK...enough silliness... back to my card...I thought it would be fun to make another shaker card...so I pulled out a cool little self-adhesive shaker pouch from Impression Obsession...and added some teensy little glass beads. Instant CUTE!!

Here's my card "recipe"...
