The Last Sassy Spotlight of 2011

I've been keeping a wee secret from you all!
I was absolutely thrilled to bits when Maria from the Simply Sassy blog emailed me to ask if I would like to be a part of the last Sassy Spotlight of the year. Maria has selected a handful of ladies that have been spotlighted on the Simply Sassy blog to take part so I'm very privileged, and of course I jumped at the chance.
Regular readers here know that my first and favourite love when it comes to stamping is a wee Scottish company called Sugar Nellie who introduced us to some wonderful designers. Of course I fell in love with the Simply Sassy range from the minute they were launched last year.

Anyway, I'm waffling here. I asked Maria if there was any particular stamp she would like me to use and her reply was "Since you're asking it would be fantastic if you use one of the boys as I really love your boys cards" . Well I did kind of groan a little, cos I think we all groan just a little when we're asked to make cards for men and boys. But I pulled up my big girl knickers (following in my crafty chum Kath's footsteps there) and got on with it. And I have to say I really enjoyed making this card, it took a wee bit longer to make but I quite like it.

Now you must go over and see all the other Spotlighters over on the Simply Sassy blog, there's loads of inspiration and I'm so lucky to be in such great company.

I would like to enter him into:

Congratulations. I was so thrilled when I saw you'd used one of the lads & how you'd also used that Rosette die - I've just treated myself to it now I have a Big Shot. I love the way you used the film strip, sprockets & gears embellishments too.

I always find boy cards hard to make; I never know where to start. But I think you did an amazing job! Great card! xx

Debbi congrats hun. I am super excited for you. I just love this card. I know for me it is always a challenge doing a card for a boy or man as you cant use all the gorgeous goodies you use on a girly card. But you have hit this one on the spot. He is adorable and I love the embellishments you used on this card. It is great the way you have used the flim strip as a ribbon for your flower. I hope you have a beautiful weekend.
