Thankful Hearts

Sassy Cheryl's Challenge #139 - Round About

Good Morning Blogland! We've come to another Tuesday and another fun challenge over at Sassy Cheryl's.
Our Sassy Sistah Dawn is the hostess this week and she has chosen the theme "Round About". What a GREAT challenge, right? I know you all will have a ball with it. Lol 

Last year I saw my Sassy DT member Judy make a pumpkin with her Spellbinder's Labels 10 die cut and I knew this year I just had to try it. It was sooo fun and easy!! I haven't decided if i am going to turn this into an easel card or if I am going to use it for a decoration. What do you think? 

I hope you all will have time to join us in this weeks challenge. 
Get into your creative corners and think ROUND!! 
Happy Crafting Y'all!!

**I have some very important information for you Sassy Cherylettes. Starting with next week's challenge, you will be required to use a Sassy Cheryl's image in your submission. **

The Wicked Witch of the West

Sassy Cheryl's Challenge #138 - Trick-or-Treat

Happy Spooktacular Tuesday!! Only a week to go until Halloween and our very own Sassy Ann has chosen the theme "Trick-or-Treat" for the challenge here at Sassy Cheryl's
Next to Christmas, Halloween has to be my favorite Holiday for making cards. I think it must be the colors. I just love the way black, orange and purple look together. I do love Halloween as a Holiday; but not the scary, pee your pants part. I like the "cutesy", little kids in adorable costumes part. If you are a teenager out collecting candy without a costume..."GO HOME"!! You will not receive any candy from this old witch. Lol
I chose Charlie, The Wicked Witch of the West  for my card this week.
 Isn't she just the cutest little witch you've ever seen? (and her little kitty too, I'm gonna call him Jinx - Lol)
My card got a little busier than usual, but I just couldn't stop adding "stuff". Hope you enjoy it. 

I can't wait to see your creations this week, so get out your spooktacular crafting accessories and join in for some Frightfully Sassy Fun!

The Good Little Witch

Sassy Cheryl's Challenge #137 - Orange and Black

Good Morning Blogland! It's time for another Sassy Cheryl's Challenge and this week our hostess with the mostest is our lovely, crafty Ann. She has chose the theme Black and Orange. Perfect timing Ann!
 I know you all have at least ONE more Halloween card to make, so get out the black and orange and join in. I picked Cheryl's adorable Sassy Sally the Good Little Witch for my card this week. I found this step card base already folded and cut in my box of scraps and decided that it wanted some company. I paired it up with some Halloween papers (also scraps) and a spooky spider web border punch. 
The end of October starts my favorite time of year. The cooler weather is coming in and it's time for jeans, scarves, football and PUMPKIN SPICE LATTES!!!  Next thing you know it will be time for the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade. Believe me, I'm already counting down. 

I hope you all have had a great start to the week. Looking forward to seeing you in the challenge.
Happy Crafting Y'all!!!

Izabella Is Turning 2!!

Sassy Cheryl's Challenge #136 - Celebrate Birthdays

Happy Tuesday Morning!! Sorry I was M.I.A. last week. I had a bout of the "creepy cruds" and just couldn't muster up the energy to get any crafting done. It sure was nice to get back in my crafty space this weekend. I had such a good time getting ready for this weeks Sassy Cheryl's Challenge. Our crafty sweetheart Judy has set the theme this week and she wants to Celebrate Birthdays. The month of October is a BIG birthday month for me, I have SIX Birthdays to celebrate!! This card is for my Great Niece Izabella's Birthday. She will be turning 2 on the 19th!! She lives in Colorado and I sure miss her. She is my favorite little red head. Big (( hugs )) and kisses Izzy-B!! I love you!

I just HAD to give Sam a carrot top for this one. 
Scroll down and you will see why...

This is the one and only, Oh So Adorable Izabella! Doesn't she look so much like Sassy Cheryl's Samantha?

I'm so glad to be back for this weeks challenge! I can't wait to see all the wonderful Birthday creations you have to share with us. Happy Crafting Y'all!!!
