Good evening dear friends. I’m embarrassed to say that I was a guest designer over at sassy studio designs for October and this is the first card I’ve been able to blog. As you know at the beginning of the month I was unable to print out any digis due to being out of ink in my printer and I’ve had a bad few weeks personally so this is the first chance I’ve had to be part of the team. I would like to apologise to the wonderful girls over at sassy studio designs for my lack of creations and I am personally so disappointed as I really love the sassy digis and I enjoy using them as they are so grown up lol! I made this card for this week’s “inspired by a movie” challenge and the film I chose was “elf” as it is just so funny and perfect for the time of year. Here is my card:
I decided to go for a twist on the traditional colours and used lime green instead of the normal holly green, which I think looks quite funky. The image is called ‘Santa’s helper’ and I coloured her with a mix of promarkers and flex markers. I cut out the image as she was a little bit too big for any of my nesties and raised her up on 3d foam squares. The papers are old ones that I found in my stash – the checked paper is doodlebug and the words paper is momenta.
The design team are so talented and have created beautiful projects for this challenge. Please pop over to the challenge and check them out.
I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:
OSAAT challenge – Christmas

If you’re quick you still have until 7am tomorrow to enter a card into the challenge, and although we’d love to see your sassy images, you can use any image you like. I’ll be back later with another card using a sassy image (I am trying to make amends for my poor show last month!!). I hope you have a wonderful evening and thanks so much for stopping by.
