The Crazy Challenge Sponsorship


Good Monday morning to you!  Today we are sponsoring The Crazy Challenge.  Their challenge to you is “TO MAKE IT IN AN HOUR”!

Here is the card I made, and I used one of the upcoming new releases.  It’s the new and improved Little Honey’s Sailor-isn’t she adorable! 


I used the sketch from Creative Belli Blog, they also had the added twist to use a patriotic theme.  This card was actually very quick to make, as there are not a lot of layers.  If you’d like the chance to win 4 more Sassy images then head over to The Crazy Challenge and link up your creation.

Have a great day!

Happy Monday!

Happy Monday! ok normally I am not a monday person lol but today is a very special monday, It's my 2 year wedding anniversary!!!

So I want to thank all of you for your kind words this past week, my dad is doing much better, it was a big eye opener and he is making big lifestyle changes to ensure he can make it another 47 years (he wants to hit 100 lol) as is my whole family diet changes more exercise etc.

Also Hubby and I have found another house since the last had fallen through again (for the last time) so we needed to move forward and its a great little starter home its about as old as we are lol but its just like 2 blocks from my parents so when we have kids it will be easy to go visit and my dad can just walk over any time he wants but its not like its next door or something which i think would be too close! lol but so far it is looking promising and by Tuesday paperwork should be signed and we'll be in escrow again and then we'll get a little more excited again he hee, oh also it is close to the place I am working now and has room for me to have a craft room! so its a great little fixer upper.

and I have one last bit of sad news for the week Cassie is no longer able to stay a member of the sassy seven :( we are so sad to see her leave the team she has been a wonderful asset to SSD and we are sad to see her go, but she assures me she'll still stop in when she can to say hi, so that means we had one last surprise spot open up on the team, so I am re-reviewing all those entries again and one last lady will be selected so I hope by release day I can announce our final addition to the team!

SO finally one last SURPRISE..... in honor of my 2 year wedding anniversary I am offering a special surprise freebie today!!!! It is one of our new images that will be released on July 1st so you will have it before anyone else, and you can only get it today, you have until midnight tonight PST to email me at and i will send you a fabulous new image tomorrow

Happy Almost Friday

Hi all so its Thursday night I'm so exhausted what a week, I know I haven't gotten a few emails out and I am sorry, I haven't forgotten it's just been a bit crazy. So a started a new job a lil over a month ago and right now my schedule is 10 am -7 pm which is seriously stinky lol I cant wait to get through with training because they say you may be able to switch to a different shift and I will be all over that lol

But in all seriousness this week has been a very tough one on me and my family.
On Fathers day my dad spent his day in urgent care and then the ER they had determined that he had had a mild heart attack and he waited 2 days to get to the hospital because he disregarded it and didn't listen to his body so Sunday was quite stressful with all the tests not knowing what was going on etc and then they held him over night then on Monday they did an angiogram where they went in and used a lil balloon to open his arteries to see blockages etc turns out he had 2 arteries almost 100% blocked and they inserted 2 stints into each of those 2 arteries, he had to stay in the hospital til the next day when he got to come home, he is doing much better getting back to normal its pretty amazing honestly, his father when he had stints put in they had to cut open his chest etc and he was down for the count for quite a while, and well with technology changes etc over time now my dads only scar is a slit on his wrist where they entered through a artery and used a tube in his vein to go up to his heart and he got to watch it on video the blockages etc and no scars a little soreness for a few days etc but it has been a bit sad and stressful week we've been by to visit everyday.

and the house we were working on fell through again so now we are 100% done with that and now starting the search again we did find one yesterday thats a block away from my parents which is kinda nice so we are working on offers and that whole bit again.

So I apologize if I am delayed on anything and though my dad is ok now I mean that fact he had a heart attack is just I cant even find the words to describe....
so I will leave it at that since I am sure you can understand but its been a hard week but we have a wonderful new team working away on the July 1st release oh my goodness am I excited for this one!!!
and be sure to stop by here on Monday June 28th its kinda a big's Mine and Chris's 2 year anniversary and I have a special gift for you on that day
anyways have a wonderful Friday and weekend and I'll be around

New Design Team Members

Hey everyone... so I don't know why but the strays always find me or my family lol
so yesterday i got home from work and a dog was chained to my fence...just dumped on our front porch basically and abandoned...omg!!!
SO we are taking care of it for now but we are maxed out on dogs for now (if I had my own house I would have taken it in hands down but since we still have not gotten the house yet I cant put that on my parents they have 4 of their own and are kind enough to let my 1 live with them as well until we do get the house) so we are working to find it a really good home.... so anyways thats my little personal update lol but I know thats not what you waited up for lol you wanna know who made the team don't you!?!?1

Joining the Sassy Seven is....

so stop on in their blogs and leave them some love, to those that did not make the team thank you so much for your entries, it seriously was a difficult choice because there were sooooo many great entries! and I hope you will consider applying for our monthly guest designer contest over on PCP its so simple you just create with ssd images, any images doesn't mater how many you create and you just post your creations for us to see in that months discussion and we select someone new every month and like i said you don't have to go out of your way to do an entry project just if you use SSD images at least once a month add your creation to the application discussion. And because I do appreciate all the effort you all put in I will be send you each a personal email I just haven't gotten to finish all of them yet but they are coming and I have a little surprise attached for each of you so over the next few days watch for those emails. (it will take me a few days though so you don't need to email me again if you entered I have your email. but if you dont get it say by next monday then email em for sure just in case maybe it gets lost in cyber space or something, because things happen)

well have a great evening everyone! and Congrats to the new Team members I can't wait to start working with you all!


Just a reminder today is the LAST day to buy any of those images on the discontinued list on the store and it is a big list... now I said until midnight tonight, and I just want to explain that is the only guaranteed time, since I have to remove it all manually it will take me some time and chances are at midnight I will be sleeping so when I get up in the am is when I will be removing images so if you still see them up after the deadline that is why, and you can still purchase while they are still up, but I am letting you know that there is no guarantee they will be there after midnight PST (California time) Email me if you have any problems as I mentioned before that Blogger has decided to hide some of the images but they are all there you just have to look a little deeper but if you have troubles I will happily email you links or answers to any questions

PS don't forget to check back tonight, when I get home from work I will be announcing the NEW DT!!!

Challenge Winner!

Have you been waiting patiently for me to announce the winner of last week's challenge??? So sorry for the delay. The winner is....

Beautiful card Sandra! Be sure to email Lindsay at to claim your prize! 2 Sassy images of your choice! Congrats!
