Sneak Peaks!! Christmas Sassys!! SECRET SANTA

Yesterday I promised I would have something special to share with you today if you kept your eyes peeled.. well.. I won't hold you in suspense any longer..

Please meet SECRET SANTA!! One of the six new Christmas stamps for Simply Sassy. She and her friends will be available from Funky Kits very soon! There will be previews all this week over on the Sassy Blog - so make sure to check back each day in the lead up to our blog hop on the 18th!! I'm freakin' EXCITED!! What a treat we have for you!

I have coloured this beauty with Copics and PMs and fussy cut her out. I have paired her up with papers and adhesive die cuts from Basic Grey's Jovial collection. I have followed a sketch over at Wild Orchid Crafts. I am fairly new to both the challenge blog and the products.. but I gotta say I LOVE them. I must stop hoarding them so I thought I would break a few out to use on this card! :)

Alongside the WOC flowers I have used a few of my handmade clay doodads and some Basic Grey buttons. The tags are die cut using a die from PTI and stamped with some Whimsy Sentiments is SU! ink.

I would like to enter this card into these challenges:
× Crafty Hazelnut Christmas - Buttons
× Totally Gorjuss - Flower Power
× Poodles Parlour - Anything Goes
× Bah Humbug - Whateva!!
× Pixie Dust Studio - Let's Cool Down

  4. Hi Lou,
    Just Gorgeous!!! Love the gorgoeus image you've used, the dp's, the colour scheme is fabulous. Love the layout and the embellishments. Coloured perfectly. Thanks for joining us at The Poodles Parlour and Good Luck.

  5. This is brilliant, I love her hair & the stripey socks & the way you gave her traditional Christmas colours but used background colours that are not. The splash of aqua by your flowers picks out the aqua spots in the circular image panel & I love the way you have scallops with pearls showing just part of the way round that same circular panel.
    Terrific & I like your interpretation of the sketch too.
