Sassy Studio Designs May New Release Blog Hop







Welcome to the Sassy Studio Designs May New Release Blog Hop!  It's a long one so grab a cup of coffee or tea (or maybe a beer or a glass of wine), get comfy, and get hopping!  If you arrived here from Jamie's blog you are already off to a fabulous start!  If not, you may want to go back to the beginning, the SSD blog, and make sure you don't miss any of the fun!

Everyone knows that April Showers bring May Flowers so this month our hop is all about buds and blooms!  We'll be sharing our favorite flower with you, and you'll see them on our creations!  And you can win a fabulous Sassy prize of 3 of the new release images simply by telling us what your favorite flower is on the SSD blog.  Want a chance to win another prize?  Simply comment on the design team members blogs as you go.  Two random winners will be selected from all comments to win 1 new image each!


My favorite is the lilac!  They smell so heavenly when they bloom!  They bring back wonderful childhood memories and instantly transport me to my happy place!  Not to mention they're my favorite color - purple!  Here is a lovely photo I found on the Internet.  I should have taken one myself, but the lilacs bloomed so early this year and are already starting to fade.  I know they'll be back, and there are plenty of summer blooms to enjoy, but it's always sad to see them go.




Though I didn't include any lilacs on my card, I have used plenty of flowers!  They are a mix of WOC and Recollections.  And this Sassy lady is the new image #1 Mom!  She is available in the SSD store today!  If you were lucky, you might already own her as she was a freebie offered only on Mother's Day weekend!  This mom's got it goin' on and she even has fab "mom hair"!  I've colored her with Copics, fussy cut her, and mounted her on the card front with foam squares.  Even though Mother's Day is over, this image is perfect for a birthday or a thank you for any mom in your life!   

My layout is sketch #120 from Cards and Things Challenges.  Papers are My Mind's Eye - Lost & Found Two: Sunshine.  Other embellishments include a Tim Holtz muse token and some teal pearls.

Here is the complete hop order, in case you get lost along the way:

Please note: We are experiencing some technical difficulties with Jamie's blog so the link may not be working.  If you try and get an error, please come back later as we are working to resolve this.




Thanks for stopping by and remember to leave a comment for your chance to win!  Now to Lori's blog you go!  You have until 12am on Wednesday, May 23rd to complete the hop and be eligible for prizes.  Hope to see you later tonight, beginning at 7pm PDT (10pm EDT), on the Sassy Studio Designs Party Blog for a chance to chat with many of the Sassy design team members!


Have a fabulous day!
