Simply Sassy Release Blog Hop!

It is time for another Simply Sassy Blog Hop, as today sees the release of a whole new set! Now, if you've come from the amazingly talented Elaine'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 Book Club, isn't she the cutest nerd EVER!!! Now I knew this card was missing something, I just couldn't put my finger on what it was...until I put it up in my post just now and saw that I forgot to put the buttons on the flower centres :o(. I'll update it tomorrow for a more complete look ;o).

This image can be used for so many things, such as a gift card (for a book...or something ;o)), a back to school card, a door hanger for a studious little girl, a bookmark etc. etc.

I have used Maja Design papers, My Favorite Things Die-namics doily, flowers and leaves, the sentiment is by Stamping Bella, the pearls are from Kars and the background stamp is from Stempelglede. The Copic colours are: E00, E51, E93, E21 (skin, cheeks, lips), E44, E43, E42, E41 (browns), R29 (red).

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 21 November to do so!

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

You can find Book Club over at Funky Kits, where they have an amazing deal for the release weekend: when you buy the whole set, which you can get at the usual amazing price of six for the price of five, you also get the limited edition stamp for free (this stamp will only be included in the set this weekend and will not be sold individually)! So that's seven stamps and you only pay for five, that's what I call getting into the Christmas spirit :D!


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

Hugs,
Erica

Sarah said...

She's wonderful! I'm liking the red and Brown combination a lot, you seemed to have pulled on just the right shades! I so wish that these stamps had been released a little earlier, this stamp in-particular would have been perfect for my best friends birthday card! Both her and I love reading have short hair and ware glasses! I'll just have to make it for her Christmas card or maybe a simple thinking of you card. I Haven't had a chance to buy these stamps or stamps like them before (none in my area) so I'm really excited to get this new set and try my hand and bringing them to life!

Sarah!

Wat een mooie kaart weer!! Alleen jammer dat ie als je er op klikt niet vergroot in beeld komt (sorry dat ben ik weer). De tekst is zo ook niet te lezen. Maar dat neemt niet weg dat het mooie kaart is dat je mooi papier hebt gebruikt.
