Simply Sassy Release Blog Hop!

It is time for another Simply Sassy Blog Hop, as today sees the release of a new set, which might actually be my favourite so far (sssshhh, don't tell the other Sassy's!)... Now, if you've come from the amazingly talented Anita's blog then you're on the right track! If you haven't or if you're just joining us, please head to the Simply Sassy Inspiration Blog to start the hop ;o)

I'm so excited to be able to introduce you to Travel Lite, or as I like to call her, Becky ;o). You see, Becky's going on a mini-break with her new boyfriend and he's very impressed she's only packed one tiny suitcase! Little does he know she's already sent the two big ones ahead to their hotel ;o).


This image can be used for a great many things, such as a bon voyage card, or a miss you card, or an invitation for a friend to come stay with you :D. I have used the new sketch over on Pink {Ink} Sketch Challenges for this card, provided by the lovely and very talented Kylie :D!

I have used My Mind's Eye papers, Spellbinders Nestabilities Labels Eighteen, the suitcase stamp is from Magnolia, the doily (just visible) is made with My Favorite Things Die-namics, the flowers with EK Success Retro Flower punches, the sentiment is by Papertrey Ink, the pearls are from Queen & Co and Zva Creative, the butterflies from Rayher and the Copic colours are: E00, E51, E93, E21 (skin, cheeks, lips), Y28, E53, E50 (hair), W7, W5, W3, W2, W1 (greys).

Okay, onto the important stuff: for this blog hop I get to give away the Simply Sassy stamp that I used on my card to one lucky winner! All you have to do to be in with a chance to win is:

Leave a comment at every stop on the blog hop, you have until 12.00 noon GMT (CET -1 hr) on Monday 19 September to do so!

I will pick a winner from all the comments and post the winner's name in my blog at 19.00 hrs that evening, so be sure to check back then!

You can find Travel Lite over at Funky Kits, where they have an amazing deal for the release weekend: buy all six stamps in this set for the price of five!



Next up on the blog hop is the fabulous Autumn, so hop on over and see what amazing creation she has in store for you! Have a great Sassy day ;o)!

Hugs,
Erica

Your shabby chic colouring is so soft on this & the way you used those different sizes of pearls just adds to it - those pearls really pick out the spots of her dress & echo those white spots of your spotted brown paper. Your little tale of the suitcases is such fun & I love your colouring of her eyes against the skin colour. the way that arrow on the image suitcase points right & draws the eye towards your two suitcases (presumably the ones she sent ahead) hidden behind the flowers is such a nice touch of designing.

What a great card with so many amazing details! Those flowers are awesome and I like how you have carried the pearls throughout your card. Those butterflies are perfect too so dainty. And last that Sassy is so so pretty! I love her flowing hair and how she seems so delicate with her hand in that position.
