I have partnered her up with a selection of papers from the Crafters Companion Frou Frou CD, plus I have been brave and doodles my own silver swirl embellishments with a quickie glue pen and some beautiful fine glitter.
I had a lot of fun making this card, so I hope you will visit at Fab n Funky this week and get out those Sassy images. I can't wait to see what you come up with.
Thanks for visiting.

I have used a combination of toppers and papers from the CD, including the little faux buttons which you can see.
I really love this image and was so glad that I found the time to make a card with it. :-)
Finally, here are some inspiring challenges that I would like to enter:

I wanted to make she very traditional Christmas cards for some members of my family and this seemed to fit the bill perfectly.
There are lots of layers on this card and just look at the feet matching paper wotht the lovely deers on there.
This is an A5 card and there really wasn't much needed as the image speaks for itself. My only enhancement was to add glitter to make that snow really sparkle.
Wouldn't you just love to visit a place like this? I know I would!!
So, on to some lovely challenges that I would now like to enter….
Thanks for visiting today.

This week we are being sponsored by Doodle Pantry and, when I visited their website, I was blown away by all the cute little creatures on there, but I really took a shine to this little guy.
I have coloured my bird in Spectrum colours and, for once I have noted down the colours, so here they are for you:
CT1, CT3, CT4, CR1, OR1, OR2, TN7, TN8, CR3, CR6, CR5, LG2, LG3, LG4, LG5.
For my backing papers I have used the Nitwits One birdie lane collection (how appropriate!) and finally I followed a sketch from Friday Sketchers to create my design.
I'm really looking forward to seeing all of your cute critters, so I hope to see you over at Fab n Funky.
And here are some other challenges that I would also like to enter:
Bye for now.

Did you manage to catch any of the Downton Abbey shows today on Create and Craft? It seems that all you crafters out there are mad for the stuff and it was literally flying! I am pretty sure tat it won't last for the planned 4 days, but I hope it stays in stock a little while so you can at least get to see some of the lovely demonstrations.
Meanwhile, here is one of my samples that appeared on the shows today....and I am very chuffed to say that Nigel May thought this card was 'wonderful'......whahooooo....praise indeed! :-) That makes me a very happy girl, particularly as I am not normally a vintage crafter.
EB2, GB8, GB10, DR2, DR6........nice and easy!!
I am so pleased that I jumped out of my comfort zone in using these products and now I would like to enter a few challenges:
Thanks for coming to visit today, and don't forget to watch out for those shows on Create and Craft. :-)

Crafter's Companion have secured the licence to produce Downton Abbey craft items and they are launching the range on Create and Craft next week. The range includes all sorts of things including stamps, CDs, embossing folders and dies, so there will be something to suit every type of paper crafter.
I was very lucky to be able to play with some of the stamps and CDs, and here is one of the items that I made....a tea bag gift box.
How do you like the pattern on the box? These are papers from one of the CDs. It is basically broken down in to a category for each character and they each have their own paper range - beautifully coordinated, as you can see. The added bonus is that the male character are included too, so there are some lovely 'man' papers in there, not to mention the usual embellishments etc.
I love this tea pot too.........
So I am sure you will be wanting to see some more inspiration ahead of the shows, so check out these facebook pages for some sneak previews.........
