Sassy Studio Designs blog hop

Welcome to the Sassy Studio Designs blog hop. This month our release is "It's a Small World After All" in honor of the upcoming Olympics. Lindsay has designed new Sassies for many of the countries. If you've come from the very talented Kim's blog you are in the right spot. If not, head to the SSD blog to get all the details, you don't want to miss anything.

I've used the new Russian Honey for my card. I chose to make a Christmas card, she looked so wintery in her fur hat and muff.

My sketch comes from Christmas Card Challenges [with sketches] #33.

Here are all of the important details about the hop:
