Show Me #18

Well, it's time to get NOSEY again.  Each week I get the biggest kick out of seeing what you're working on and what your space is like for the week.  I'd show you mine as far as the desk/etc., but it certainly would be boring.  Just the same old black desk with the Cintiq and iMac, so I'm glad that you all are willing to share yours. Certainly much more exciting.

I also have a little something up my sleeve too, but can't share that until April.  :)  I know, I know.  That's mean, but oh well.  You'll be as excited as I am.  Hmmmm.  I wonder what it could be.

Thanks to everyone who braved the task of sharing this week.  So, much, fun!  
Congratulations Tootsie.  Just drop me an email and I'll get that FREE image right out to you.
So, here is just a little ditty that I'm working on for next week.  She's a sassy little dancer!  Haven't completely decided on everything, but she's coming along.
Okay, so what are working on this week?  Can't wait to see.  And for you newbies, NO, it doesn't have to be a Sassy image, it can be WHATEVER you just happen to be working on.  Perhaps your baking or organizing. Whatever it is, we'd all love to see. . . .and so would all of these fun, snoopy ladies.  And believe you, me, they are nosey.  

Just post your photo or blog using Mr. Linky.  You'll have until 5 PM, Wednesday, April 6th. to enter for a chance for the FREE image.

And don't forget to play in for the Guessing Game.  Another one starts tomorrow.  Will WANNA BE  BUNNY be on top again?  Hmmm.  Could be!  But then again, maybe not!  But come and play along.  It's lots of fun.

These two images are the same as two other images that are listed today on the site, but with different faces.  When I was drawing them, I had to give them some attitude with the face, so I did these as well.  I know it sounds a little confusing, but when you get to the site, look up the Little Graduate (boy or girl)  You'll see.

Let's play a Game. . .


. . .shall we?  
You all know how I LOVE giving stuff away so, let's play a game for a FREE image.  This will be a new post every Friday.

Everybody knows, or at least most of you do, that I'm a stickler for details.  I like the facts!  I'm the K-I-S-S person.  I like things, simple and to the point. Well, for the longest time now, I have been trying without success, to find a program that would tell me what my top sellers are for the day, week and month.  It needed to be something that could be added to my website. I thought that finding such a program/download would it be easy.  Yeah right!  No such luck.

Since opening my store, I have always been able to see my top sellers, but nothing on a more detailed scale.  I wanted to know what was actually selling well.  Guessing, just doesn't get it.  So, FINALLY on Wednesday evening, after one last desperate search, I found a program that would do just that!  HOORAY!  You thought that I'd won the lottery or something.  =)
So, that got me to thinking, wouldn't this make a great game? I thought so and I hope you'll play along.

So, here is how the Guessing Game will be played. I'm going to give you the top 5 selling images of the previous week. All you have to do, is tell me which one sold the most.  Then, all you have to do, is leave a comment telling me which one you think was the top seller.  This isn't a you "guessed right first, you're the winner".  That wouldn't be fair. So, let's start with a few simple rules.
~ ~ ~ ~ ~
1.  Leave a comment with your 'educated guess.'
2.  You may only enter ONCE.  All duplicate entries will be deleted.
3.  When guessing, please include both the number AND the name of the image in your comment.  That way there won't be any doubt or confusion as to which image you are choosing.
Example guess:  1.  Decked Out Easter Bunny
4.  You'll have until 5 PM EST on Thursday, March 17th. to be considered for the drawing.
5.  ALL correct guesses will be tallied and a winner will be chosen using the True Random Generator.  
6.  The winner will be announced the following Friday with 5 new choices for another try.
~ ~ ~ ~ ~
Here are the Top 5 selling images for the week of February 24th. thru March 3rd.  Which one do you think sold the most?
So, now all you have to do is play along with your guess.  Remember, please include both the NAME & NUMBER when leaving your comment.
Good luck.  Let's see how many of you guess correctly.  This should be interesting.
And don't forget about the SHOW ME post & the COLOR ME challenge.  Those are fun too.

Happy Birthday Tracy!

First off, if you came here from Peggy Marsh's Blog, then you're in the right place.  Now, let's get to the fun!

Well, it's a very special day!  Didn't you hear?  It's Tracy's Birthday.  I'm not going to tell you how old she is.  Besides, I don't even know!  =D
Tracy. . .
HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!
So to celebrate, some of her friends and DT have put together a special blog hop in her honor.  Isn't that sweet!  I think that speaks volumes about the kind of person Tracy is.
I first met her when I started my PCP group.  She showcased this WONDERFUL creation.  And I've been in love with her work ever since!  In fact, she was one of the first people to join the group.
I've been blessed to have her on my DT for over a year now.  She is truly an amazingly, talented woman!
Now, I don't have a card for Tracy, because I'm not that talented, but I did steal a photo from the Guest of Honor.  It's one of my ALL TIME FAVORITES cards made by her and it certainly would be fitting as a B-Day card.
AND. . .
  to aid in the celebration, Sassy Cheryl's is giving away a FREE image. One lucky winner will be chosen at random from the posted comments. All you need to do is leave a comment here. Comments will be accepted until 7 AM EST Sunday morning. Winner will be announced on Sunday afternoon. 
Pretty simple. . .huh!?
So, Tracy, happy birthday!  Enjoy your day!
Now, hop on over to Debra's blog.  She's your next stop on the hop!
And don't forget to leave a little birthday love for Tracy here as well as on her blog!  I know she'd love to hear from you.

Cheryl Alger (aka Sassy Cheryl) **You are here**

Tune in tomorrow. . .

For another chance to win a FREE image.  You'll have to check back tomorrow for all the details.  It's gonna be fun.  At least I hope you'll think so.  

AND. . .
The Kitty Kat Chit Chat Stamp is now completed and in the store!  I knew I'd be getting emails about when she'd be available. . .so wait no more.  She's there!



Show Me #15


Hey, did you know it was Thursday?!  At least that's what I heard.  And if that's true, then it's time for another SHOW ME post.  Now, I'm going to go out on a limb here, but I'm willing to bet, that I'm not the only nosey person around 'these here parts'.  Well, let's just see.
First, lets get to the lucky random winner for last weeks post.  
That person is lucky #11.  Patricia.  That's you!!!
Congratulations.  Just drop me an email, and I'll get your free image out to you.
Now, here's a little something that I'm working on.  This may look a little familiar to you.  A while back, a very dear customer wrote to me and asked me to do an image similar to Bunny Chit Chat, but with cats.  Well, as most of you know, I have to be in the 'mood' to draw something.  I get TONS of requests and even though ALL of them are FANTASTIC suggestions, I still have to 'feel' it to draw it.  Well, this week, I was 'feeling' it.  So, I'd like to introduce Kitty Kat Chit Chat.  Now keep in mind, it's still on the drawing board, but should be ready soon. . .so be patient you sassy gals.  I promise she will be ready by Tuesday. . .or if you're really good, SOONER.  You just never know.
So, what are you working on?  I'd love to see.  So, go ahead, snap that photo and just link the photo or your blog post using Mr. Linky.
You'll have until 5 PM, Wednesday, March 16th. to post your link to be entered for the FREE image. Winner is chosen by True Random Generator.  Good LUCK!
And HAPPY BIRTHDAY DADDY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  I LOVE YOU!
