Challenge #92 - Winter

Woot-woot!!  We're sending out a "super thank you" to all of our challenge participants this week. We certainly had an outstanding response to our "Anything Goes" challenge... and we love you for it. We're looking for a guest designer from our November entrants.. so we do hope you will join us and play along - there's just this week left if you want to jump in. You just might be the lucky person who is selected to come and join us for the month of December.

Just so you know, we used to draw a random number for the $5 gift certificate to Sassy Cheryl's shop. But now that you can enter any card or paper project, those who use a sassy Cheryl image get an extra entry in the drawing, and a random number selection just won't work any more. So here's what I do.. I put all of the names in a hat (it's really a Huggies Wipe container - he-he) and draw a name. That's how the lucky winner is picked. I tried to get one of my dogs to pick, but that just wouldn't work. Trust me on this. My dogs want to eat and shred all of paper....I really tried to get creative.

So, with that said, our winner for this week is  Jan Hunnicut. Congratulations to you, Jan! Just email Sassy Cheryl to make arrangements to get your $5 gift certificate to Sassy Cheryl's shop. You will find some adorable digis that are just perfect for any occasion you can think of. Then go color them up and come back and join us again and again.

Our Sassy Pat gets to hostess again this week.. and her challenge theme is "Winter".. so you get to do just about anything you would like that reminds you of winter. Here's what Pat and the Sassy gals have created to jump-start this week's challenge.



Want to play along??.. well, we would love to have you. Just link up your blog post (no back links, please) or your on-line gallery post here with InLinkz... Although you don't have to use a Sassy Cheryl image, we would love if you did (and besides, you will get an extra entry if you do). One entry only, please.

We'll come by and say hello and see your stunning creation.

Have fun...and enjoy your week, sassy friends!

Challenge #91 - Anything Goes

Hello sassy friends... Lots going on with us today. And, Happy Thanksgiving to all of our US friends!

Before we get to the details of this week's challenge, are you anxious to learn if Sassy Cheryl was able to guess all of the cards we created last week? Well, here's the collage of the cards the sassy gals created and here's how Sassy Cheryl fared.

All of the cards in the collage are numbered.. and Sassy Cheryl's guesses (and image names) for each of the sassy gals are...

1. Ann (Cup of Cocoa)
2. Cathy (Whoops)
3. Dawn (Sally & Her Blue Birds)
4. Peggy (Farmer Sally)
5. Jackie (My Little Flower)
6. Judy (Reindeer Sally)
7. Pat (Flat Bottom Snowy)
8. Jeni (Lucy Lou, Princess on Ice)

And guess what, sassy friends... she got them all RIGHT!! 

Good for you, Cheryl. So the sassy gals didn't win an all-expenses-paid trip around the world....at least not this time. But we'll getcha!  For now the score is tied at

Sassy Gals = 1
Cheryl = 1

Great job, Cheryl. We certainly had fun doing this. We'll do this again

Each week we pick one lucky winner of a $5 gift certificate to Sassy Cheryl's shop and this week it's Mary Demmons. Congratulations, Mary!!

And, an extra $5 gift certificate this week which goes to THERESA who guessed correctly that Sassy Cheryl would guess the right answers. Here's what she said... "A big YES for Cheryl.................:))  Thanks for the inspiration ladies, absolutely super!!! lotsa luv". Congratulations to you too, Theresa!

Mary and Theresa, just email Sassy Cheryl to arrange for your gift certificate and have a great time shopping.

Now on to this week's challenge. We had so much fun with it that we're doing back-to-back "Anything Goes" for the challenge Sassy Pat is heading up this week.  Here's what Pat and the Sassy Gals have created as a bit of inspiration to get us started.

By the way, Sassy Cheryl is having a sale that will run through Friday of this week. All items in her shop are 15% off...so happy shopping everyone.

So, come and join us in our challenge this week.. Just make an 'anything goes' card or paper project, post to your blog or online gallery, then link it up here. The sassy gals will be by to see your creation and bring you some sassy greetings. Have a fantastic week everyone!!

Challenge #90 - Stump the Boss (Anything Goes)

Thanks to so many of you who played along in our embossing challenge last week. Great participation! We're spending November looking for that one special entry that earns someone a spot as a guest designer for the month of December. So, we are hoping you will join in and have some fun with us. 

Our lucky random winner from last week's challenge is Melle!!  Congratulations to you, Melle. Just email Sassy Cheryl and she will make all of the arrangements for you to get your $5 gift certificate to her shop.

Now on to our special challenge... it's time for
Stump Sassy Cheryl!

Many of you will remember that we did this last year and we had a great time ribbing Sassy Cheryl.

 The Sassy Gals have been working diligently behind the scenes to stump our boss, Sassy Cheryl. Sassy Cheryl claims that she can tell which design team member made a particular card by just looking at it. So, we are putting Sassy Cheryl to the test. Using the challenge criteria for this week's challenge "Anything Goes", the DT has created these lovelies.

And here are the cards the design team created...

You can visit all of the sassy gals to see their posts for today and check out Cheryl's comments along the way.

So, we're going to give Sassy Cheryl a few days to work through this to make her selections. All she has to do is correctly match up the sassy gals to their cards. But we're hoping she makes her picks quickly as she has been WHINING about the DT gals cheating the last time we did this. Frankly, we have no idea what in the world she is talking about!!!??

Want to join in on our stump?  Can Sassy Cheryl do it???  All you have to do is say 'yes' or 'no'.. in our comment section if you think Sassy Cheryl will correctly match up the cards to the designer. If you guess correctly, and play along in our challenge, you might be the lucky random winner of a $5 gift certificate next week... in addition to our normal $5 random pick from entries. That's right... there's two chances to win.

Here's the score going into this 'stump'

Sassy Gals = 1
Sassy Cheryl = 0

We're hoping you will play along with the feisty sassy gals. Just link up your 'anything goes' card right here. Remember, you don't have to use a Sassy Cheryl image, but if you do you get an extra entry in our random drawing.

Challenge #89 - Emboss It!

Hi sassy friends... Are you having a terrific and sassy week so far? It's been busy here with the Sassy gals.

We've got lots of news to share with you this week. Beginning today, and for the remainder of November's challenges (15th, 22nd and 29th), we'll be checking out all of our entries and selecting one lucky person who will be our guest designer for the month of December. So sharpen your pencils, dust off your supplies, line up your copic markers, and come and join us.

Also, Sassy Cheryl now has a company spot at Splitcoast Stampers. So when you upload your lovely Sassy Cheryl creations to your Splitcoast gallery, just use the key word Sassy Cheryl. It's as easy as that!

Each week we have one lucky person randomly selected from our challenge entries that gets a $5 gift certificate to Sassy Cheryl's shop. Here's our winner from last week's entries.. randomly selected, of course...

That lucky person is Holly!  Congratulations, Holly... all you have to do to claim your prize is email Sassy Cheryl and she will get you all fixed up. Happy shopping! We look forward to seeing your new creations.

Sassy Peggy gets to hostess this week and her challenge theme is 'embossing'... any type of embossing that you would like. Here's what Sassy Peggy and the Sassy Gals have created for this week's challenge.

Looks like fun, right?  There's lots of inspiration here.

Don't forget that we would love for you to use a Sassy Cheryl digi, but that rule changed and it's no longer necessary to do so. If you do use a Sassy Cheryl digi, then you get two entries into our random drawing.  You have until next Monday evening 6:00 EST to enter and we'll be by to see your creations.  Have a sassy week, sassy friends!

Challenge #88 - Just saying "Thanks"

The month of October always kind of sneaks up on us.... where in the world did it go?? Now there's the astonishing realization that there are only two more months of card and paper project making before gift- giving time is upon us. So, let's all get ready....Sorry, didn't mean to depress anyone! Just saying....

Our lucky winner from  last week's challenge is...  the very lucky Juel Marie. Congrats to you, dear. To claim your $5 gift certificate to Sassy Cheryl's shop, just email Sassy Cheryl and she will make all of the arrangements for your shopping venture.

For many of us, November conjures up 'thanks'... for friends, family, and more. So that's the theme that our Sassy Pat selected for this week's challenge. Here's what hostess Pat and the sassy gals have created for the challenge.

There's lots of new sassyness here this week... along with some older favorite images. All can be found at Sassy Cheryl's Digi Shop. 

Don't forget our new rules... that you don't have to use a Sassy Cheryl image to join our challenge. But we would love if you do.. and if you do, then you get two entries in our random drawing. Just make sure that you follow our "Thank You" theme for this week.  

We hope to see you play along with us... Have a fantastic week, sassy friends!!
