The more candles...the BIGGER the wish!

(Punches & Shimmer)

Oh Happy Day!!! We have reached our 100th Challenge here at Sassy Cheryl's!! 
I made my very first card with one of Cheryl's images on March 15th, 2010. 
The more I played along in the challenges, the more I fell in love with her adorable images. 
I joined the DT on the 27th challenge and I can't believe I have had the honor of being around for 73 more challenges. I am so blessed, Thank You Cheryl! 

I am hostessing this week and just want to see some punches and a little shimmer on your crafty creations. 
Easy peasy, right? I used Cheryl's A Special Birthday Cupcake and paired it up with a corner punch  and  a candle border punch. I put stickles everywhere! Lol  (her tutu, her bow and on the tip of every candle) 
I found the idea for the rolled candles on my new found past time "Pinterest". LOVE IT!!

A hug FUR you!

Sassy Cheryl's Challenge #99 - Light blue & brown

Happy Tuesday everyone! It's time for another fun Sassy Cheryl's challenge!
This week I am lucky enough to be the hostess with the mostest. 
I chose the colors Light Brown and Blue as the theme. 
Just in case you noticed.... my FABULOUS new water mark was made for me by my Crafty Sassy Sister Dawn. I just LOVE it!! Don't you think it fits me perfectly??? Thanks so much Dawn (((hugs)))

I chose Cheryl's adorable Noah & Patches for my card because I needed to make a Birthday card for my Nephew Jonathan. He and I share the same Birthday week so I always tease him and say he was my present. (Lol)  I know...I know...he was HIS Mom's present. 
HAPPY BIRTHDAY FINN! I love you bunches!

I want to remind you that next week will be
Sassy Cheryl's 100th Challenge!!!!
We will have a fun challenge for you and the opportunity to win some fabulous prizes. So make sure to come back and play along with us. I also wanted to say WOW to all of you who entered the challenge last week. I think a lot of you were REALLY ready for the Bright & Cheery challenge.

Sassy Cheryl's Show Me Thursday #59

As usual, I am a little late for the Sassy Cheryl's Show Me Thursday challenge!
I do have a few things to share.

First of all I would like to give a BIG "Thank You" to Naomi over at Scrapping in a Zoo for my totally flippin' adorable card and embellishments!! I was so surprised and tickled to find this treat in my mail box. I can honestly say that I loooooove to get cards in the mail. I am  old school when it comes to that stuff. 
I can't wait to use my velvety buttons and sparkly green ric-rac! You made my day girl!  :)

 Now, onto the nitty gritty...my messy space. I know you love it!!
Since the beginning of the year I have been cleaning, organizing and TRYING to find better storage for my supplies. I think if I come home with just one more sheet of paper my Hubby may move out into the Airstream. See this stack of plastic??? It USED to be the home of my Spellbinder dies. 

 Until I found  this box at Office Depot. It is a hanging folder storage box for CD's but it is perfect for my Spellbinder and QuicKutz dies!!!! See how much space I freed up? I have a whole drawer empty. Not to mention the fact that my die cuts are lots easier to get to.

I put the picture of the die cut in the front pocket and the actual die cut in the back pocket.  I wrote the name of the die on the top so I can easily see what I am looking for. Then they just hang so nicely in the box. I loved it so much that I went and got another one just in case I can't find one when my first one was full. LOL

 I also got this REALLY COOL Stack and Store Caddy from Stampin' Up. I don't know why I didn't get one sooner! It is perfect for holding all my fancy buttons and charms. I will definitely be getting another. 

Anyway, that's what I have been up to this week. I have been cleaning, organizing and searching for my MoJo in this little Happy Space of mine. Trying to clear the clutter from my craft room and my brain. I have a good jump on it so I may be back to share some more organizing ideas soon.

Of Corsets your Birthday!

Happy Thursday bloggy friends! One more day and the weekend will FINALLY be here!!
I wanted to share a Birthday card with you today. This beautiful corset image is part of a digi print page from Just Inklined. It comes with FOUR beautiful images. (two dresses, a shoe and this corset)  You can find it HERE. I took another  turn with my Prisma Pencils but I have a feeling I will color this one again with my Copics, maybe in some soft pinks....Hmmmmmm.

Call Me...

This week at Sassy Cheryl's we are chasing away those Winter "blahs".  
Our very own crafty cutie Dawn is the hostess and she wants to see some Bright & Cheery cards.
It was a nice change getting out of the Winter mind set. After Christmas I am ready for warm weather, sunshine and sand in my toes! My hubby told me to put on some Jimmy Buffett and crank the heat up. Lol
I had a little printer problem last night and had to use my Cricut to make a sentiment. (Thank goodness I have extra images already printed on hand.) Anyway,  as my little Cricut was cutting I was wondering...."Why don't I use this more often"? I had to keep playing with it and cut out this cute phone for the inside. I think I may be HOOKED again.  How cute is this stinkin' phone?!?

I don't know if you noticed or not but we are only 2 challenges away from 100!!!
WOO HOO!! Can you believe it? I can't say much right now but I can say that Cheryl has come up with some  wonderful prizes and a fun challenge for you, so stay tuned. 

Happy crafting y'all! Hope to see you in the challenge this week.

One more Christmas card...

Sassy Cheryl's Challenge #97 - Snow & a Sketch

I still can't believe it's the beginning of another year! Where does the time go? I have been fighting with my mojo for a couple months. I think it is just the craziness of the holidays. Hopefully things will get back to normal soon. I'm not saying that my normal is "normal". Lol 
I had to make a few more Christmas cards just because I really do enjoy them. Hey, I'm getting a jump on next Christmas! I was a REALLY bad girl and did not send cards this year. I know, I can hear the gasps! I had full intentions of sending New Years cards too, but let's not go there either. I'm gonna blame it on the whole mojo thing. Anyway....blah, blah, blah. I'm rambling. On to today's reason for this post!

This week at Sassy Cheryl's Dawn is our hostess with the mostest and she has given us a great sketch to work with. All you have to do is follow this sketch and add a little snow. Easy peasy, right?
 I used Cheryl's "Flat Bottom Snowy" for my image and colored him with Copic markers. Isn't he adorable??? I just love Cheryl's snowmen, they are THE BEST. You can find all of those frosty cuties HERE

Sure hope to see your beautiful creations in the challenge this week. Head on over to Sassy Cheryl's Challenge Blog and get some inspiration from the DT. I am sure they have some yummy treats for you. 
Happy Crafting Y'all!!

Happy New Year!

Welcome to Sassy Cheryl's first challenge of 2012!!
We are celebrating new beginnings this week. New Year, new baby, new home, new anything!! 
I chose to go with the New Year. My daughter Savannah got a K&Co. "Smash Book" for Christmas and we were working on the first pages to start her off. As you can see, she hasn't added her photos and keepsakes to them yet. We made each photo mat a pocket to hold her mementos. This new image from Cheryl called "Lets Party...Sassy Sally" is perfect for Savannah. Totally fits her. Maybe when she adds her own personal touches I will post a pic. 

Here is a close up of Sassy Sally in party mode...isn't she adorable!?!

We are looking forward to another fabulous and fun year with Sassy Cheryl. We sure hope to see some new Sassy Friends and look forward to seeing more of our old Sassy friends too. 
Hope you all have a fabulously crafty New Year!!
