Sassy Sally loves leaves...and PINK!

Hello my darlins...It's Tuesday and that means it's time for another fabulous challenge at Sassy Cheryl's Challenge Blog!! The very sweet and talented Miz Dawn is our hostess this week! And once again, since October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, she's chosen for our theme...

Sooooo...oh yea, I made another shopping trip to Sassy Cheryl's Digis! Let me just say, if you haven't been there lately, you NEED to check it out! Cheryl has been a very busy Sassy Artist!! She's created an entire new line of Sassy Sally images...not to mention the new Lucy Lou collection! Wheeeeee!!  I love 'em all!! Here are just a couple of these new little cuties...

And, once again I found another darling image that I NEEDED RIGHT NOW!! That's the beauty of Sassy Chery's Digis...INSTANT GRATIFICATION!!! And here's what I came up with...a pink "Autumn" card!!! hehehe!

Isn't she so stinkin' cute?? In fact, she's soooo cute, I'm not the ONLY one of Sassy Cheryl's DT to choose her this week! hehehe!! My sweet DT sistah, Cathy, colored her too! All I can say is "great minds think alike!" Way to rock it, Cathy!! Now...this darlin's called "Autumn Bench Sitter" and you can can find her HERE!!
