Crafty Catz #88 - Add a Charm

Morning Peeps sun is shinning here in Manchester and son is holiday so guess busy day for me. Car failed Mot but got fixed but told brake pads and discs will need changing very soon pads about 3 months and discs in the next 6-9 months but would have thought if pads need changing best to do discs at same time. OMG what the bill going to be.
Anyway as i say the sun is shinning and it is a good day. Today is Friday weekend starts tonight and so hopefully you will have time to join us in another challenge at CRAFTY CATZ this week is the lovely Linda's turn . Linda would like you to dig out your charms note to self must use these more often.

Our sponsor this week is Sassy Studio Designs.

Sassy Studio Designs is a fresh new company. We have been designing and selling for a year now, and we have been kindly received into the community of digi stampers and crafters. I started designing images shortly after I started stamping, reason being . . . I didn't hardly like anything else out there I was a young adult woman at the time I was engaged, had no kids, I wanted sexy images that I would enjoy using and my friends and hubby would enjoy receiving. I designed images for 2 other digi stamp companies when my wonderful hubby kept trying to get me to go out on my own. So in June 2009 thanks to the few faithful followers I had, Sassy Studio Designs was born! It has been a wonderful journey starting my own store. We have just grown so much these past months I still try to keep with my original philosophy and reason for designing stamps, make them fun and keep them sassy . . . and yes sometimes even sexy!

We where kindly given some images to play with and I picked this fab one of a me in the bath ( I wish). I coloured with my promarkers added some string with dashes of colours to tie into the colours. Papers are from a pad I got at a garden centre such good value and double sideded. Charm from stash just had to be the old makeup bag to go with this. Lots of mirri card for reflection as we girls like our mirrors. Touch of 3d gloss to make the bubles raised hope you can see in one of the pictures. Well think thats it for the discription fairly plain card for this no flowers dont want them getting wet in the bath.

Pollycraft DT Card

Hi folks Pollycraft is looking for new people to join their team. They have given away 2 fab images to make a card with. I coloured both images not sure which I would make into a card and this little sweetie ended up being made 1st. I am sure that the other will soon be made into one too. The image is called Sonny's Party and you can find it here. While you are there checkout the prices of their Christmas Digi stamps they are reduced.

I will apologise for the number of pictures as light was really bad and couldn't get the angle right so hence the number. Hope you are not too bored. Papers are from a pack of 12x12 which was a real bargin at just £10 from a garden centre they are double sided too. No name so cant say. Flowers are from Wild Orchid one of my birthday presents i was soo lucky. Ribbon from Hobby Craft. Oh and of course image coloured with my promarkers. Few gems and some miri card for a little bling.
So now onto my picture hope you like the style of card have left the inside blank and thought it would also make a lovely gift card too.
