Some Sassy Cards and Blog Hop Winner :D

Hello all, I've been a bit remiss in posting, have had a busy few weeks but hopefully the worst of that is over now and I can relax again :D. I did find time to play with my Sassy stamps for the Simply Sassy Inspiration Blog and this is what I came up with:

Isn't she pretty, sitting there waiting for spring to arrive? She longs to chase butterflies, pick flowers and feel the sun on her face again after a long winter! This pattern is from SplitCoastStampers, at least that's where I found it. Really easy to make and it looks so complicated!

Materials used:

Stamps: Simply Sassy "Hippie Chick"; sentiment by Papertrey Ink
Paper: Bazzill Basics cardstock white, kraft; Paper & Pictures "The First Collection" DP Embellishments: Kars adhesive pearls
Tools: MFT Die-namics flower trio, doily and butterflies; Martha Stewart leaf punch
E00, E51, E93, E21 (skin, cheeks, lips)
E44, E43, E42, E41 (hair, shoe)
BG0000, BG01 (clothes, flowers, headband, legwarmers, eyes)

You know how you get started on a project and you're having so much fun and it just saddens you when you finish it? I had that with these notebooks, which were designed by my friend Monique for our challenge blog a while ago. They are so easy to make and so fun to give away! I'm giving one to a colleague, who was browsing through my blog, stumbled upon an earlier version I'd made and wanted one too...after weeks of her dropping not-so-subtle hints I've finally decided to give in, and here they are (be warned: picture overload *lol*):

Now this cutie pie has to be teacher's pet doesn't she, I'm surprised she's not carrying a shiny new apple for the teacher...although it might be in her lunch pail ;o). I love this Sassy for her big glasses, hair which is a dream to colour (I have hair colouring problems sometimes, but not with this one :D!) and her funky legwarmers. And don't even get me started on those shoes, Krista has done it again! They look like the kind that tone your legs and other bits when you walk don't they, what are they called again?

Materials I used:
Simply Sassy "High School Student"; sentiments by Papertrey Ink and Kaisercraft Paper: Elzybells kraft cardstock; My Mind's Eye Stella and Rose: Hazel Collection Embellishments: Zva Creative swirls and pearls
Tools: Stampin' Up! punch; MFT Die-namics
Copics: E00, E51, E93, E21 (skin, cheeks, lips)
Y28, E53, E50 (hair)
E44, E43, E42, E41 (dress, shoes, books, glasses, hearts)
BG10, BG11 (eyes, hairclip, tunic, legwarmers, lunchpail)

If you want to make this notebook cover yourself, the description (in Dutch and English) can be found HERE. This cover holds an A6 notepad and can be easily adapted for the Post-It notes.

And now for the blog hop winner, thank you all so much for joining in with the hop, hope you had a great time and were inspired to get your Sassy stamps out and have a play!

Ik had dit model kaart al een tijdje maar wist niet zo goed wat ik er mee aan moest. Nu heb ik een goed voorbeeld. Dank je wel. Het is een hele mooie en aparte kaart geworden.
De notitieboekjes zijn ook erg leuk geworden. Misschien ga ik dit ooit eens proberen.

Groetjes, Gerrittina
