We're doin' "Pastel" at Sassy Cheryl's!

Hey there my sweet friends!! Welcome to the shortest post in the history of blogdom! Well, maybe not the shortest EVER . . . but certainly the shortest I've even done!! Why? you ask . . . well, it's very simple, really. As you are reading this post, I will be jetting my way across the U.S. to Phoenix, Arizona . . . home of the Phoenix Sun's (basketball), Diamondbacks (baseball), and Cardinals (football)! Also home to our five adorable grandkiddos! Whoohoo!! I can't wait to corrupt them . . . er, I mean "spoil" them! Hehehe!

So let's get right to this week's challenge over at Sassy Cheryl's Challenge Blog! Our lovely and talented Miz Judy is our hostess again this week . . . and she'd like us all to create something using . . .   

Pastel Colors!

Ruh roh! My mind is already on vacation, me thinks! 'Cuz the papers I chose aren't particularly pastel . . . but my coloring is pastel-ish . . . kinda! hehehe! So here's my "sassy" DT card for this week . . .

This card features Sassy Sally and her Raggedy Ann, one of Sassy Cheryl 's newest images! I can't tell you how delighted I was when I saw this new digi! You see . . . when I was a little girl, Raggedy Ann was my very, verrrrrrrry best friend! She and I went everywhere together! We even went on our first sleep-over together . . . at Suzie Routsens' house (I think I was maybe 5 or 6 years old . . . YIKES!) Now we won't even get into how crazy my parents must've been to let me sleep over at a friend's house when I was so young!! But it is a little NUTS, don'tcha think? Anyway . . . sadly, Raggedy Ann's arm got stuck in my friend's bed and got accidentally amputated! aacckkk!! I cried and cried until my dad walked up the street and retrieved me! (It's true . . . I didn't even make it through the night!)  Fortunately, my mother was a nurse (seriously, she was) so she re-attached Raggedy Ann's arm . . . and made her good as new! Phewww . . . it was years before I did a sleep-over again, let me tell you!
