Sassy Christmas and the Joy of Giving

Hi All!

Can you believe Christmas is just around the corner!? (Ugh!) There's lots going on today... First up we have this week's Kenny K's Krafty Krew Challenge - Sassy Christmas, saucy cards for that special guy or gal. You can have a lot of fun with that! 

I used Mistletoe for my design:


Here's her recipe:
Hair: E11, E13, E15, E17
Skin: E000, E01, E02
Gloves and eyes: G12, G14
Suit: R35, R37, R39
I used N3, N5, N7, N9 on her stockings and boots.

Now it's your turn - create a sassy Christmas card and post it on the Krafty Krew blog in the inlinkz. You could win prizes from Kenny K and Crafty Ribbons!Good Luck 

This is a very cheeky post today I must say - in keeping with the theme, Sassy Studio Designs is having a new release this weekend. If you saw the Dare to be Sassy Thursday post, you got a little sneaky peek! Saturday and Sunday we're having a release hop. Here's the details:

The Joy Of Giving

Lindsay made some fantastic images celebrating Christmas in all the right ways!
And I am sure you are going to want each and every one of them!

We are going to change it up a bit this time around....
just to keep you on your toes...
and have added just a picture of each member's project with a link to their blog.

The challenge is VINTAGE OR SHABBY CHIC...
AND at the end of tomorrows post we will have the linky for you to add your
project should you chose to join us!


The definition of vintage is:

Too old to be considered modern, but not old enough to be considered antique. Often used to describe items for sale online such as ebay auctions or craigslist posts though may also be found in printed listings such as classified ads. Can also be a euphemism for "heavily used" items

Retro, recently out of style with potential to make a comeback

The definition of shabby chic is:

the use of used, worn, or inexpensive components to make stylish goods

Something (maybe someone, i.e., Joan Collins) that's rather worn out/tattered yet has a touch of understated class
So break out your traditional Christmas papers, let your romantic side out, or use those distress inks that have been sitting in a drawer! 


So, for my vintage creation, I used  All Wrapped Up from the new release.

  
Since I went with the vintage theme, I colored her in Sepia tones (E30, E31, E33, E34, E35, E37). The paper is all Tim Holtz as is the gem clip and metal tag. The sticker is by Reminisce. I sprayed everything with cappuccino Perfect Pearl spray to ad a bit of sparkle. 

Okay, now I think I've given you plenty to do LOL. I look forward to seeing your creations!

Until Next Time,
