Sassy Studio Designs - Blog Hop with Prizes!!!!

It's finally here, RELEASE DAY!!! Whoot Whoot!  There are so many new fabby designs that Lindsay has created, I can't wait to share them with you!  If' you've arrived from Christy's blog - http://mycreativejourneys.blogspot.com/ you're on track, I hope you left her some love for a chance to win some new Sassy designs.   Here is what is up for the winning:
1.  Three of the newly released images will be given away, but you have to comment on the SSD Blog hop post telling us what your most favorite tool is, and your least favorite tool is. 
2.  There will also be 2 prizes for 1 new image each for randomly drawn comments on the design team blogs.  So as you're hopping, leave some love to be eibigle.  You never know which blog will have the winners!

Soooooo, here is what I whipped up for the occasion using Elizabeth Laura Bennet:


Isn't she beautiful........loving her tye-dye dress, so fun to color!

Now, we will be chatting it up on the SSD Blog under the party blog,  at 10 pm eastern which makes it 9:00 central for me.  Join us for ideas, tips, trick, and getting to know each other.  We have a huge design team, so we shouldn't run out of things to chat about!  If you're not a chatter, just click in and listen, you're bound to pick up a tip or two -  LOL! So, come on over and let's dish!  I hear there will also be prizes given away there too!

My most fav tool in the world is a small wall paper roller:  Here is a pic of my well loved item (excuse the goobies) I didn't clean it up for it's blogging debut....
I use it for folding my cards.  I know, sounds silly, but that stupid bone folder and I don't get along, great for scoring, but I always mark up my card folds with it - I HATE THAT!  This inexpensive little roller is the ticket to a great fold, even if the card stock is thicker.  So, this is hands down,  FAVORITE, gotta go out and get it item! 

Now, onto my least favorite tool, and I'd like to chuck it out the window - a perferator tool, you know the one that looks like a ladybug with a tracer wheel like dressmakers use to ink darts?  Maybe I just don't get the idea behind this, but I find when I perferate something, it tends to tear after a bit.  Maybe I'm using the wrong paper?  Really, what are these for?  Granted, the lady bug is super cute, but what does she do?  So, there is my two cents worth.

Leave me some love, and head on over to Jackie's blog - http://stampingsister.blogspot.com and see what she has created for your viewing pleasure.

It is just amazing how you did her dress. I love it. I would have never in my life have thought to use a wall paper to fold my card. Its a great idea. The tri-fold card is just perfect for this image. Thanks for sharing with us.

Debbie this card is absolutely stunning!! I love how you did her dress (how did you do it?) and the fold of that card is great (what kind of fold is it...I know...lots of questions lol).
