A Sassy Thursday

How is it Thursday already?  I have two sneak peeks for the Sassy Studio Designs release on the 15th. The first one uses Sock Hop Sweetie.  This was made using the Friday Sketchers sketch #136.  It is also for the Dutch Dare challenge blog that SSD is sponsoring this week, the challenge is stitching, faux or real. Pretty easy challenge, I opted for the real stitching.



And next up is the new Hippie Chic.  This is for the Dare to be Sassy Thursday challenge this week, #55.  We are having a New Year's challenge~Use it Up!  Use something you've been holding on to (hoarding) for at least a year, or maybe much longer, if you are anything like me, lol!  My hoarded item is the Me and My Big Ideas paper.  I bought a huge paper pad over a year ago, and have barely used it.



Hope you'll play along with these challenges for the chance to win some new Sassy Studio Designs images which will be released this Saturday!

Thanks for stopping by today.  We are back to school today, the roads are mostly clear, but we sure did enjoy our snow day yesterday!

Your cards are beautiful! Good for you getting out that hoarded paper, such a good feeling :) That machine stitching is stunning. I need to dust off my machine.

Kathy, love your cards. I went onto SSD to get the sock hop image but could not find it??? Is it a really old image?? Please let me know because I do have an occasion to use it Thanks..

Sharman, I couldn't figure out how to contact you, but wanted to let you know, it is a new (yet to be released image). It will be available tomorrow, Jan. 15th. Hope you'll show us what you do with it!
