Breaking News.....

Good Morning again.  This is my second post, for my Delightful Thursday post please scroll down.

I am so pleased to say that I am now a Sassy Girl!! I have joined the talented team over at Sassy Studio Designs.  For the next two months I am thrilled to be posting projects for the Dare To Be Sassy Thursday Challenges!!  Our theme for this weeks DTBST 199 Challenge is Support Your Team we want to see your team's colours or even your high school colours.  Well our local team is Blackpool FC and their colours are tangerine and white which didn't really do much for me.  Dave is an avid Manchester United supporter and we have been quite a few times to see them play so I decided to go with their colours:

Now that's one Sassy Santa!  I have used Santa pin-up which is available at the store here.  I decided to go for a CAS look and Santa has been coloured with my Copics with Stickles Star Dust added to the trim.  She has been cut and matted using Spellbinders Grand Nesties.  The border punch is Martha Stewart.  The Centura Pearl has been embossed with Embossalicious folder.  The sentiment is Waltzingmouse stamped directly onto the white linen card.

I don't have another picture of the card but thought I would show you a picture of one of their players in the kit:

now I know he's a fashion icon but didn't realise how well colour coordinated he was:


You don't have to use a Sassy image to enter but we love to see one and if you use one you can enter twice.  You have until next Wednesday night to enter and be in the chance of winning two Sassy images.  Please go over to the Thursday Challenge and see what the rest of the Sassy team have done for more inspiration.
