For this hop I was asked to use the brand new KATNISS SASSY ON FIRE image.  Katniss is from the movie/books The Hunger Games, but as you know I still have not read the books or seen the movie so I made a card using the image for a regular card.  This image is so versitile and GEORGEOUS that she does not have to be used as the character from the movie/book.  When I recieived the image I was blown away with how beautiful she is and I could not wait to get my Copics out.  I decided to get a little adventurous and go a little out of my realm with this image.  I won't say more other than the dress alone took me 3 hours to colour till I got it the way I wanted it, take a look and honestly tell me what you think of the dress/card.....

* I*ROCK Sugar Red Gems x 2 (one on the inside of each paper flower)* 3D Pop Dots (for Katniss & Sentiment)

I think this may be my shortest Copic list yet! Who would have think you can colour a card with out using ALL your markers LOL!

So what do you think?  Please comment on how you like the card and the dress, did I get it right?  I am very pleased with this card, don't even know if I have the heart to give it away to someone LOL.

Also for this hop we were asked to use flowers on our project and also tell you what our favorite flower is.  My favorite flower is a DAISY, and of the Daisy family I just LOVE the GERBER DAISIES and you know me, it would have to be a PINK Gerber Daisy.  Here is a picture for you to see this beautiful flower....
What is your favorite Flower?

Be sure to continue on the hop and head over to Mary's Blog to see what fantasic project she has completed!

In case you get lost along the way on the hop, here is a list of all the ladies joining in on the fun.  Remember you have until Wendesady night to complete the hop =)

DTBST#123-You've Been Framed! (Bella, Edward & Jacob)

Hi everyone!  It is Thursday and that means there is a new challenge at Sassy Studio Designs, Dare to Be Sassy Thursday (DTBST#123).  We have a fun challenge for you this week; "You've Been Framed"So put your creative hat on and come and join in the fun. You don't need to use a SSD image to play along, but we love it when you do. Enter by next Wednesday night for your chance to win 2 SSD images of your choice.

I had so much fun with this challenge, and I hope you enjoy what I have put together. 

When I saw the outline of the challenge the first thing I thought of was a picture on the wall, then it expanded to two pictures on the wall!  Take a look and let me know what you think!....
Go Figure, I made another Twilight project LOL!  My plan for this card was to set a scene that Bella was in her room (I know the walls should have purple on them and not pink, but I do not have any purple paper to use as it is my least favorite colour) looking at photo's of the two men in her life.  I used wooden look paper to create the floor, floral paper to look like wall paper and Spellbinders to create the picture frames. I am so very happy how this card turned out =)
