Merry Christmas

With the holidays coming up, I am taking a break.  Spending time with family and friends is a must.  There will be no COLOR ME Challenges or Show Me challenges until 2011. I will announce the winner of the SHOW ME challenge this Thursday, but there will be no new posts.
I hope that you will have a blessed Christmas and new year!  Enjoy time with your family and friends and if you are traveling. . . .please stay safe!  There may be a random post here and there, but if not, I will see you in the NEW YEAR!  And don't forget about the 30% OFF sale going on at Sassy Cheryl's through Christmas Eve.  It's a great way to end 2010!

Featured Sassy Friend #8. . .Judy Applegarth

Yep, it's only 5 days until Christmas.  Hard to believe!  Just a few stocking stuffers to pick up and I'll be ALL set!  Yippee for me.  That only leaves baking and cooking!  But that part will be easy.
Are you ready? Oh, and don't forget about the 30% OFF sale going on until Christmas Eve over at Sassy Cheryl's.  It's a great way to end 2010!

Now, let's get to the Featured Sassy Friend for this week.  I'm very excited to have Judy Applegarth with me this week.  She has such amazing talent.  No doubt about that!
Please welcome Judy!

I first got to know Judy just this past November when she started participating in the Sassy Cheryl's Challenges and the Show Me posts.  She has a wonderful talent.  And I love her work and not just her Sassy Cheryl's creations, but this has to be one of my favorites.  She used the Fat Dancing Snowman for this amazing card.  Isn't it just gorgeous!  I just love it.

Judy says. . . .
     "Going down memory lane, I always remember my mom working in her craft room.  She was always making something crafty and going to carious craft classes.  I think that is one trait that I inherited.  There are so many crafts that I have tried and I love them all; crocheting, quilting, beading, painting, scrapbooking, staamping and altered art.  For the past 7 years, I have been teaching stamping and scrapbooking for a direct sell company and love having ladies over to play every month.  But my true love is Copics!  I just love all the shades of colors and Sassy Cheryl's images are great for me to stretch my coloring techniques.  
     I have two projects to share with you today.
     Image 1 & 2-wedding photo.  I haven't touched my wedding photos in years.  I still haven't scrapbooked them.  Can you believe it?  Keith and I were married in Las Vegas and stayed at the Excalibur.  The theme for the week-end was knight in shining armor.  My thought was to do a card for him using the Rapunzel and Prince Charming image, because he really likes Cheryl's snowmen images, but what a better surprise.  An actual wedding photo on the wall!


     "The second project, images 3 & 4 is a rolodex using the Pick a Card digi stamp.  I loved the little girl holding cards.  It reminds me of wanting to mail some Happy Snail Mail to someone.  And I thought this was perfect for my address book, since people are always moving.  It's easy to update the cards."

Aren't these projects just amazing!!!!!!
Now if you want to be amazed even more, then be sure to check out her blog, Scramp Alot.  And I have to say, I am TOTALLY envious of her space!  What I wouldn't give to have a space like that!  It's ideal!
Before you go, please leave Judy a comment.  She is totally deserving!
And check back next week for another Featured Sassy Friend!  It's going to be another great one!

Featured Sassy Friend #7. . .Linda Compton

First, I want to thank everyone for the emails and prayers for both my neighbor and my grandmother.  I really appreciate it.  I apologize for being 'out of the loop' the last couple of days, but I'm sure you understand.
It's Monday and you know what that means.  It's time for another Featured Sassy Friend!
This is week #7 in our journey and I have yet another Sassy Friend to share with you.

Please welcome Linda Compton!

Linda has such fun and amazing cards that I knew I just wanted her to have a feature spot.  She has such enthusiasm and 'sass' and it truly shows in her cards!  And her smile!  It's contagious!  Don't you think?
I first met Linda when she started joining in the Sassy Cheryl's challenges earlier this year!  She is very talented, as you will see.  She has so many wonderful creations, but this newer card she created using the Dance Partners image is one of my new favorites.  Just look at that coloring & creativity.  AMAZING!
What an absolutely gorgeous card!  I LOVE it!

And here is the wonderful card that Linda has created for her featured spot today.  Using the Christmas Bell Ringer.  I just love the paper and the coloring is over the top gorgeous.  It reminds me of a vintage card.  She has captured the spirit of the image perfectly.
Now, let's let Linda tell you something about herself and how she got started making cards.  

Linda says:
     By day, I am a banker and do all the serious financial stuff.  By night, I cut, color and paste.  I have been a banker for 30 years and a paper crafter for 11 years.  Which do I love more?  Well, to keep it in perspective, my banking pays for my scissors, paper and markers, so . . .(what do you think)
     There are two people who call me Mom, one who calls me His Precious Mother-in-law, five who call me Nanna and my husband. . .well, he still calls me sensuous. (literal translations:'since you is up')
     My creativity comes from my Mom, who has always bee a crafter and my strength, which I could never make it through the day without and that comes from the Lord.

I tell you, when I read the 'sensuous' thing about her hubby, I just about died.  Hilarious!  
Please be sure to pop over to Linda's blog, Turtle in the Sand as she has another wonder card to share with you for today's featured spot.  She always puts a smile on my face.  Between the combination of her cards and her fun sassy remarks, you can't help but smile!  And just to let you know, Linda was the inspiration for the image.  She wrote with the suggestion.  I simply drew it!  But, before you go, be sure to leave her some nice comments.  It will make both our days!

Be sure to check back next Monday for another amazingly talented featured Sassy Friend.  It's going to be another great one!!!!!!
And if you'd like to be featured, just drop me an email, I'd love to hear from you.

Featured Sassy Friend #6. . .Cheryl Moody

I never used to be a fan of Mondays until I started doing the Featured Sassy Friends post.  Now, I just LOVE them.  Each week, I get to bring you another amazing & oh, so talented card maker.
This is week #6 and I have the pleasure of introducing you to Cheryl Moody.  Many of you may already know Cheryl as she is a frequent poster on my blogs.  She's amazing!
Please welcome Cheryl Moody.

I first became familiar with Cheryl's work back in October.  She has some amazing cards.  Her coloring and paper selections are incredible and her cards bring new meaning to the word 'creativity!'  
I have a very hard time choosing a favorite among Cheryl's many, many cards, but this has to be among the top five.  This is a Halloween card that she made using the 'Boo' image.  I just love that polka dot paper and that orange ribbon.  It's perfectly adorable!  Don't you agree?!?!

NOW. . .
Let's see what Cheryl has created this week for the Featured Sassy Friend spot.
But I won't ruin it for her, I'll let her tell you a little about her tea light holder set that she made, using the Cappuccino Anyone Snowman image and how she got started in making cards.



Cheryl says. . .
     "Hello, my name is Cheryl.  I am thrilled to be the 'Featured Sassy Friend' this week.  Thank you Cheryl for considering me Sassy worthy!  I first became aware of stamping about ten years ago when I was managing a flower/craft shop.  I was looking through a supply catalogue from the States when I happened upon some 12 x 12 papers.  The papers were so beautiful, I just had to order a bunch.  The problem was, once I got them, I had no idea what to do with them.  Customers would say, 'These are pretty, what do you do with them?' I would just smile and say. . .'I don't know. . .but they are pretty aren't they.'
     Two years later when I discovered what could be done with those papers, I gave up floral designing and became an addicted card maker!  All I had to do was make one card and I was hooked!  For life!
     I love all of Cheryl's images.  Each character has it's own personality and you just know exactly what the card needs to say just by the look on the face or by their body language.  I love that she offers both coloured as well as the digi stamp.  On those days when I am feeling lazy, I just let Cheryl do all the work and I go for the coloured version.
     When Cappuccino Anyone Snowman came out, I fell in love!  I knew the adorable fella would serve me well throughout the year.  And I've used him here in my card today.  I decided he would make an adorable Birthday project for my step-daughter who had a November Birthday.  The tutorial for this tea light holder project can be found at StampARTic.  
     Thank you Cheryl, for sharing your wonderful talent with us.  Keep drawing and I will keep creating!  
Happy Stamping Everyone!"

Cheryl has two amazing shops that she sells her cards on.  The first is her Etsy shop, that she began back in 2009 and her Ebay store.  I hope that you will bookmark both stores and visit often. 
She also has a fun packed blog entitled, God and I on the Railroadtracks, that you'll certainly want to follow.
So, go one, check them out and be sure to leave Cheryl some kudos on her featured spot before you head out!

Thanks for stopping by and don't forget, be back next Monday when I'll have another incredibly talented featured Sassy Friend to introduce!  And if you'd like to be a featured Sassy Friend, just drop me an email, I'd love to hear from you.
