Penny's Paper Crafty Challenge

My stretch as May's Guest Designer at Sassy Studio Designs is drawing to a quick close and I will certainly miss this talented group of crafters!  I've drawn so much inspiration from each and every one of them!!  But before I go (and, I will have one more fun creation for you tomorrow), I'm having fun creating for the challenge going on right now over at Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenge Blog of which SSD is the sponsor.  Their challenge this week is to make a JOY-FOLD card.  WELL ... I haven't made one of these in a very long time so had great fun doing it!  
AND ... I did a little more PAPER PIECING too!

The image I used on today's creation is called "Professor S (Sassy)" and I think I'll keep it for my sister's birthday on June 10th.  She is a hair dresser and definitely a 'fashionista' so I think she'll really appreciate this fun card.   She is 60-something going on 30!  LOL!

Here's a peek at the inside of my card ... yep, I'm still trying to keep up with my New Years resolution and so far so good!  Although I see I do have a few cards laying on my table that appear to be BLANK on the inside ... Oooops!  Need to do something about that!!!!!!
