Secret Santa Blog Hop!

My Secret Santa was Karal.
Look at all the wonderful goodies she sent me!
A fun little Scrabook kit 
 and load full of Christmas goodies! (including a few Disney princess and frozen stickers, she knows me so well) and look at the adorable Christmas Cow Card she made for me.

So I used the Christmas Paper and Washi tapes to make this card and look at that image.... might that be a sneak peak for the January Release?!?! our Praying Portrait made a Beautiful Christmas Angel don't you think?

Being the boss can sometimes have it's benefits lol so as a special surprise, one random winner will be selected from the comment to win the angel portrait before she is even released to the public. So make sure to leave a little note at every stop on the hop in order to qualify. You have until Sunday night 12/21/14 at midnight PST to enter.

Hope everyone is enjoying the Holiday Season and that you all have a Merry Christmas!

Happy Release Day!
So this release was a lot of fun for me. I have to try to keep things different each release and that can be hard, and i also try to keep with the same characters so we have consistency, so we have complete lines on images, and that's fine but also it does get a bit boring after a while, you run out of ideas. and most the time I just draw digitally in the computer, Ill use the same face bases or body bases and build on those, which helps with the consistency of the images, kind of like a line of barbie dolls, different but the same. Well this release I got to put pencil to paper again and oh what a different feeling that is. most of the sketches were doodles in my school notebook....shhhhhhh dont tell my professor. and I still digitized them the same way as my other images but getting to draw on paper is just a whole different feeling. its how I started with SSD and I only went to just digital illustration after had the sassy line and honey line started. 
But enough rambling, the images are each different they are not meant to be the same which is why I called them portraits not just because they are Portraits, just faces but because they each have their own personality.

I was inspired by a halloween scarecrow makeup for the scarecrow portrait, I had also wanted it for thanksgiving. The native american was also for thanksgiving. The Sugar Skull I know was too late for Halloween or Dia De Los Muertos but I love sugar skull makeup and I pulled out some pics of myself from last years Halloween and based her on myself. butterfly Effie well was because the new hunger games movie was coming out and i always wanted to do a butterfly Effie based on her outfit in the last film but never did. and lastly praying portrait here, Was one for thanksgiving but also as we head into the holidays, or we have family or friends struggling with illnesses I find myself needing prayer a lot more and using it for others a lot more and I was just inspired by it and felt we needed a faith image in our line up.

As for my card I spent hours coloring her as its been like 2 months since I have colored anything by hand too and it was a labor of love. I am in love with this image and wanted to make her amazing. but then once she was done I couldn't figure out  what kind of card to do. I looked through every paper I own (you should see my craft room it is a pig sty now!) but none of my papers looked right they took away from her so I Kept it Simple, as prayers should often be. I used white cardstock, and black embossing powder with a sentiment stamp from The Greeting Farm. And I used pop dots to give her some dimension and bring her up off the page, and that is it.

I hope you all enjoy today's release and hop and we have challenges happening over at the SSD blog and Facebook groups, and I hope you will join in on some of them. We will also have a chat over at the party blog tonight where you can chat with some of the design team members and maybe get a sneak peak at one of Decembers images. But most of all I hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving this upcoming week, and stay safe and warm with the cold weather coming in .

Stay Sassy and Sweet,

Happy Release Day!
Are you as Excited as I am about this release!?!?!
I don't know about you but I am absolutely in love with the Disney's Frozen Movie.
I knew when it came out that I had to add to our line up with some Sassy renditions of these Beauties, and thought they took me longer than any other image I have even done because of all the patterning on their clothing and their hair I am so happy with how they turned out and I am so excited to finally get to be sharing them with you all today! 
If you started the hop at the SSD blog and went in order you are almost at the end, and I sincerely hope you enjoyed all the amazing creations from the rest of the team today. I was intending to feature and show off the Queen Elsa image but wanted to show her with the Frozen Heart Anna image. I wanted to show them together because when I designed them I wanted them to be able to be combined together so I wanted to show you how nicely they fit together back to back.

I did kind of keep my card very simple because I spend hours coloring Anna and Elsa and wanted them to be the focus, that and I was practically falling asleep at my desk trying to finish this card for today lol

The inside I just featured a sweet sentiment that I just typed up myself. I used this once before in a birthday card for my sister and thought it was so fitting for Anna and Elsa. And Coincidentally, my sister is a blonde and I am a red head and I currently have bleached bride of Frankenstein streaks that look a lot like Anna's only difference is I am the oldest ;-)

Well if you are finishing the Hop stop by the last stop at the SSD store and leave some feedback on this months release. you must comment on all the stops of the hop to be eligible for the prize give away, and don't forget we will be meeting up on the party blog tonight at 5 pm PST so be sure to join me and some of the DT, and there is supposed to be a nice surprise for those that show up, **hint**hint**hint**

so head on over to teh store and leave some feedback for your last stop on the hop here

March Release Day!

Thank you for hopping by!
My Project for today's hop is using Latte Momma.
I reused a Crystal Light Container with lid and turned it into a little piggy bank of sorts. I also dug into my stash and used some unused cuts and pieces from an Old CM set of papers. I have such a bad habbit of hoarding paper and buying more and not using up my stash so I though the Idea of using what I already had also fit into the Recycling theme today. Not to mention the use of the Crystal Light Container, which also makes a good pencil box or marker box etc for kids I have one with Crayola Markers in it for my niece for when she wants to color over at my house. I used Ribbon also from my stash, around the lid and base to finish it off an make it look really nice

 So don't forget to keep track on your Tic Tac Toe Board.

 Your next stop will be over at Michelle's Blog 
So keep on going.
and if I am your first stop, head on over to the SSD site to get all the details and the full list

Have a Wonderful Weekend and I hope you will join us for a chat on the Party Blog at 5 pm PST tonight you never know what kind of surprises may be in store if you do

Stay Sassy,
