Dare to be Sassy Thursday



It's Thursday again, that means time for a Dare to be Sassy Thursday challenge at Sassy Studio Designs. This week our challenge is a Kentucky Derby challenge (all about the hat). I was lucky enough to go to the Derby three years ago, and it is a memory that will last a lifetime. It is really a show of hats down there. You should have seen the size and glitz of these hats. Some people nearly needed a separate seat on the flight for their hats, lol! You don't need to make a Derby themed card, simply make sure your creation includes a hat of some sort.

You don't need to use a SSD image to enter, but you get two chances to win if you do use one. Check out the DT creations and play along!

My sketch comes from Sweet Sketch Wednesday #204. I'm always a fan of their gorgeous sketches.

Hi Kathy I just love your story about the Kentucky Derby. It must be like the Melbourne Cup in Australia and the Auckland Cup here in New Zealand where there is a contest for fashion and hats which is lovely but the Kentucky Derby would be so much larger. I'll put that on my bucket list for one day. I do love your card what an awesome graduation card for a young lady finishing uni. Love your colours and papers and the beautiful satin ribbon is the perfect finishing touch to a lovely card. Thanks so much for sharing it with us over at Sweet Sketch Wednesday and good luck.

Fabulous, Kathy! Love the papers and your take on the sketch! That's so cool that you got to attend an actual Kentucky Derby! I've been to Churchill Downs but not at race time. That must have been something to see! :-)
