Hey Sassy Fans!! So glad you could stop by today, and get a taster of some of the sneaks from the new Christmas release for Simply Sassy. The three girls we've been teasing you with through the week are just gorgeous aren't they?! Well now you have the chance to meet all six of them! We have them on show today through til Monday (midnight GMT) and the whole set will be available at Funky Kits from TODAY.
Now, if you've arrived here from Autumn's blog you're on the right track, if not, head back over to the Sassy Blog and get a look at the blog list. That way you know where you need to be heading! :)
I would like to introduce you too.. CHRISTMAS KISSES.. Come onnnn!! If these beauties aren't enough to make you start your Christmas cards now, I don't know what will cut it!
Look at her hair, for goodness sake. I wish my colouring could do it more justice. I have coloured her hair and skin using Copics and the rest has been colouring using PM's and a little touch of paper piecing. I have paired her up with some Christmas paper from a line by Cosmo Cricket - Mittens Weather collection. I love the unusual colours in this collection, the baby blues and purple and lilacs. Perfect for that little something different.
I know what you're thinking.. you haven't fussy cut her out Lou.. well, you're probably about as shocked as I am. I forced myself to just cut her out, and.. I did it.. aaand.. I'm actually pretty pleased with how it turned out. *wipes brow*
So I have fussy-ied the card up in other ways.. heehee. I've added some lilac and powder blue (they ain't the real colours but the names escape me..) roses from WOC - of course.. and added some Baby Blue Liquid pearls here and there. I have also added some ribbon, twine and a charm in an arrangement at the top - held together with a head pin. I've also made a custom head pin which sits on the other side of Christmas Kisses.
Last but not least is some faux stitching/ doodles I've added with a brown fineliner - as Mr Janome is broken for good me thinks! R. I. P. It makes me sad to think I'll never have real stitching on my cards for a while so let's not talk about that. Perhaps Santa will bring me a new one? ;)
Now it's time to head on over to Maria's blog and see what eye candy she has for you there!!
Remember: You must comment on all posts throughout the hop before it ends at Midnight on Monday (GMT) to be in with a chance of winning all six Christmas Sassys from the set. Good luck - you don't want to miss out on these girls, let me tell ya!
