Simply Sassy Blog Hop

Good morning Sassy friends and welcome to our Blog Hop!  We're celebrating the release of 6 awesome Simply Sassy stamps.  You should have arrived here from Erica's blog.  If you get lost along the way, you can always head over to the Simply Sassy Blog to see who's next on the hop.  The hop starts Sunday, April 17 at 10am GMT (5am EST) and lasts through Tuesday, April 19.

I used Witches Cauldron today.  Isn't she a beautiful little witch?  As soon as I saw her I was anxious to get her colored.  You see, my daughter's birthday is on Halloween so I love decorating and making cards for Halloween.  I used copics and colored pencils to color this cutie and added some Glamour Dust to her buttons and the heart on her hat.  I added a little spider charm to the bow.  My layout is Maria Therese's sketch from over at The Sugar Bowl.  Have you entered the challenge over at The Sugar Bowl yet?  There's still time to enter the challenge and ... guess what the prize is?  All 6 of the new Simply Sassy stamps plus some Spellbinders!  I hope you find some time to play along with them.

Now, is this a stamp you can only use at Halloween? No way! You can use this stamp year round ... just check out the inside of my card. Hmm, I think I'll probably be giving this to my hubby the next time I'm "a little witch" lol!

Now you'll want to head over to Autumn's blog to check out her fabulous project.  You can buy all the Simply Sassy images at Funky Kits.  And since we're celebrating the release of the new images, they're offering a special price for this new release.  

Thank you so much for stopping by.  I hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend.

I love Halloween - It's my Hubby's Birthday ( I call him a Witch - Do you think he would appreciate this witch)? hee hee

Just thought of a few occassions other than Halloween this little cutie could be used for!

SOOOO CUTE and more versatile than you would initially think - I did get stuck on the Halloween theme when I first seen her but been thinking (DANGEROUS < I KNOW) ha ha!

Have a great weekend

Take care

The colours are delightful & I do like the way you've used black & white in the composition. the little charm is a striking & I like the way the twine picks up the base layering. Her hair looks fun to colour too.
