Challenge #79 - Wish Someone a Happy Birthday

Whew, what a week.. Sassy Cheryl and several of our sassy gals live on the East Coast of the US and have had a helluva week! Fortunately, everyone is doing well and most have resumed power.. sometimes sassy gals even color by candlelight, like our Sassy Pat had to do. (sounds like an Abe Lincoln story, right?) What dedication is that?

We loved seeing all of your sassy entries this past week, and while we wish all of you could win each and every week, we only get to pick one.. and it's a random selection.

The lucky person this week is Mary M.  Mary, all you have to do to claim your $5 gift certificate to Sassy Cheryl's Shop is email Sassy Cheryl and she will make all of the arrangements for you. Congrats, Mary, and have fun coloring up some new digis!

Miz Sassy Judy hostesses again, and she has set the theme as "A Birthday For Anyone"... let's see how Judy and her teammates interpreted the challenge... Check out this lovely stuff.

Great job, don't you think? The sassy gals sure can conjure up quite a bit of inspiration.

To play along, and we hope you will, just link your card or paper project right here with InLinkz... link to your post, not to your blog address. All of our rules are listed to the right of this post. Just make sure you use a Sassy Cheryl image and follow Judy's birthday theme for this week.  We'll be by to see your lovely creation.  Good luck to all.

Challenge #76 - What's Buggin' You?

Challenge #75 - Not Your Usual Fold

Hello Sassy friends! Welcome to the month of August and a brand-new challenge. We're at our 75th challenge already. Time sure flies by.

Hopefully it's not blazin' hot in your neck of the woods and you are staying cool, or at least staying indoors and crafting!

Our winner from last week's challenge, randomly-selected, is

number 7 and that is Barbara!  Congrats to you, Barbara. Have a great time picking out some new digis at Sassy Cheryl's digi shop. If you would please email Sassy Cheryl so she can arrange for your gift certificate, then you will be all set. Happy shopping!

Before we get to the challenge details, here's a bit of very happy news from Cheryl and the Sassy team. We are so lucky that the very talented Pat Frank has joined us.  Please meet Pat and give her a sassy welcome!

Hi Sassy friends!  I'm Pat Frank and I'm thrilled to have been invited to join Sassy Cheryl's amazingly talented Design Team...not to mention that I get to hang with the CRAZY TALENTED Sassy Cheryl herself and play with all of her delightfully whimsical images!! One more "dream come true" for me! OK...so, Peggy asked for a short intro...hmmmmm...here goes...

I'm 50-something (more "something" than 50!) and married to my best friend who totally "gets" this crafting obsession of mine!  I am so blessed to have him as my biggest fan and supporter...(and enabler"...but I prefer "supporter"! ) I am proud to be "Gramma Pat" to five incredible grandkiddos...ranging in age from almost 13 down to almost 5...4 girls and one boy! Talk about being blessed, huh? My three children and our 5 grandbabies live in Phoenix, AZ...while my hubby and I live 2000 miles to the east in Richmond, VA.  Fortunately, I travel to Phoenix regularly to get my "grandbaby fix"!! I am getting ready to retire after almost 30 years of a fantastic career as a Registered Nurse, Neonatal Nurse and Educator. Now, I look forward to days of being a SAHC (stay at home crafter), homemaker, and travelin' gramma.

I've always been pretty "crafty"...but started seriously getting into coloring and cardmaking late in 2009! I traveled to Northern Virginia in the fall of 2009 to take a Copics coloring class, debuted my blog in March, 2010...I discovered digis...and the rest, as they say, is history!! Thank you so much for this incredible opportunity to join Sassy Cheryl's DT!
And, from all of us on the team, a very special welcome, Pat!  We are so glad to have you with us. We'll have you 'sassy' in no time (but I think you already are)!
Miz Sassy Jeni set the theme for this week's challenge and she's looking for some type of card fold other than the standard type of fold. Here's what Jeni and the Sassy gals have created.



Lots of great ideas for different folds. You can find out more details for the folds the Sassy gals used at each of their blogs. 

So, what will you create for our special fold challenge?  To join us, and for a chance to win a $5 gift certificate to Sassy Cheryl's shop (randomly-selected, of course), just link up your design below. We look forward to seeing your creation.

Have a fantastic week, Sassy friends!
