Sassy Lassy . . .

Before I get ready to go to dinner with neighbors, I wanted to share this little creation with you.

As you know I LOVE making cards and I'm sure you've seen my name (and face) all over the place!  LOL!  One of those places is Paper Craft Planet and it's been way too long since I've joined in the fun over there.  SO today I decided it was time to play along.

The Sassy Studio Group offered an awesome freebie on Friday and that is the focus of my creation.  If you've not seen the digis offered at Sassy Studios, you can check them out HERE.  I will also be sharing this creation over at their Sassy Studios Designs Challenge Blog where their current challenge is "Something Old and Something New".  The OLD on this card are the flowers (had to blow the dust off them before I could use them on the card, lol) ... the NEW is the Cheery Lynn Designs Tropical Flourish die.  I've used Prisma markers for my coloring and the design paper is Imaginisce.

For my design layout, I have used this sketch which is for the current Sketch Challenge at Paper Craft Planet.  (trying to kill 2 birds with one stone, lol)
(Oh no ... I just noticed that I forgot to put my GEMS on either side of the focus image.)  I will have to take care of that and hopefully redo the photos.

 I've made a New Year's Resolution to finish the INSIDE of my cards at the same time as the fronts ... so in TRYING to keep up with my promise ... here's a photo of the inside of this card.

I'm thinking maybe this would be a good card for hubby on Valentine's Day but then again ... since my 'curves' aren't what they used to be (unlike this gal) maybe I'm best to buy him a box of chocolates and call it a day!  LOL!

Well I'd better get away from this computer and go get ready for an evening out with our friends.  Hope you are all having a wonderful weekend!
