Bachlorette Sassy - Sassy Studio Designs Mini Blog Hop

I'd like to introduce you to Bachlorette Sassy, one of two additions to the sassy family this week!  Isn't she FABULOUS!  I couldn't wait to doll her up just in time for another Mini SASSY Studio Designs Blog Hop. I have so much going on from tulle, pearl pins, sparkle stickers, flowers, bling, and of course my latest passion, pop up shapes for the inside of cards.  Thought a diamond ring was perfect for this digi!  A friend of mine made a card for my daughter with a ring like this, and well, I copied her!  Well, maybe copied isn't the right word.  She got to play with the honeycomb first - I am confident I would have eventually thought of this myself - LOL!  We tend to think alike a lot - that's sooooo scary! Thanks P.J.  

Okay, now on to the deets!  You should have arrived here from SSD Blog (I know, easy right, can't get lost when you've just hopped here first), but just in case, below is the hopping list.  Okay, now I'm supposed to share with you my fav bachelorette memory!  Well, I know I'm going to really show my age, but I've never been to a bachlorette party - just showers, and from what I hear they aren't near as fun!  I've seen a lot of parties in progress, but never took part in the festivities.  I know what you're thinking - how stinkin old is this woman!  LOL!  Well, back in the day, bridal showers were the only thing!  So, if you leave some love and share your bachelorette party memories, you have a chance to win the two new images being released:  Bachlorette Sassy and Final Fling!  So get hopping, your next stop is Starla, be prepared - she does fabulously sassy work!  Thanks for Hopping by.

Bunny Birthday - The Stamping Boutique

This one was sooo cool.  I used Birthday Bunny from The Stamping Boutique, he is really c - u - t - e.  I love the cake, it's like that funfetti cake mix that we all loved as children.   Me, as an adult, not so much.  Love the look of sprinkles, but really - the taste - yuck!  I wanted to 3d the cake in this one, and used my stamp set from Inky Antics and honeycomb paper.  So here is a question, why is honeycomb paper so darn expensive?  I'd love to know of another source, other than devra paper, the combs in that are toooo big, okay for bigger projects, but I really prefer the tight combs.  So, if you are reading along, and know of a place, Please please please let me know your source.  I use my 50% off coupons when I can to get this paper.  Anyhow, back to the card.  Check out the birthday candle border from EK Success!  Cool huh.  I love EK Success punches, they punch like butter, and I've never had a problem with them.  I do love my Martha Stewart ones, but have you ever pinched your hand when releasing the handle, OUCH!  Mental note - be careful!  Kate one of the DT members at Sassy Studio designs got me hooked on tulle, well what can I can it just goes with EVERYTHING and makes it girlie!  Enough babbling, enjoy your day, and hope you can craft!  I'll be celebrating at the following challenges: - Funny Card - Going Dotty - Inside and Out - Anything Goes - Song Inspired - Happy Birthday to you! - Embellishment - All that Glitters - Sparkles
