Give Me Some Sugar

My mojo has seriously been lacking this week!  It has taken me forever to get started on anything crafty and then I feel uninspired as I sit at my desk.  It looked like it was going to be the same last night when I finally sat down about midnight to start my Fabulous Freebie Friday project for Sassy Studio Designs.  Perhaps my brain is still in vacation mode.  Perhaps I'd rather be reading more of the guilty little pleasure that is Fifty Shades of Grey (downloaded to my phone on Wednesday and tempting me ever since)!  Whatever it is it melted away when I put Copic to paper on this sensationally sexy Sassy image!

Her name is Denim Debbie, and she is from the Fashionista collection.  Now discontinued, this is your chance to grab her for your Sassy collection!  Simply head over to our Paper Craft Planet group, where she will be available for 24 hours!

We have a new challenge starting today over at PCP as well....  This fortnight we have a photo inspiration for you!  See this lovely floral summer dress?  We want it to guide the creative decisions for your project!  Feeling the flowers?  Love the colors?  Want add some pretty ribbon or a bow?  There are several beautiful options and we'd love to see how they translate onto your creations!

For my card, I started with the current sketch from Mojo Monday (#250).  I love this layout with all the fishtail banners!  They seem to be a hot design element at the moment and I'm so glad I purchased the My Favorite Things Fishtail Flags STAX Die-namics!  I have used it here, along with a lacy doily, paper piercing, and embossing.  I love the result!  Papers are Basic Grey - Sweet Threads and Urban Prairie.  My image is colored with Copics and cut with a Classic Circle Nestabilities die from Spellbinders.  Perhaps I am in a "Grey" frame of mind from my recent reading, but this sentiment from My Favorite Things Twisted Threesome stamp set seemed like a fun addition to the card!  A Recollections flower and a few half pearls are my only embellishments.

I must admit that I am pleased with the finished result!  I'm hoping that Mojo has helped my mojo and that I'll be back on my game when I sit down to create tonight!  Join us tomorrow over at Sassy Studio Designs for our "It's A Small World" International Honeys new release!  As always there will be fun and prizes to be had!

Be sure to visit us at PCP today to grab your freebie!  Debbie is only available for 24 hours, beginning at 8am EDT.

Have a fabulous day and thanks for the visit!

Oh, Regan, this is fabulous!! I just love your coloring, and the sentiment makes me LOL. Reminds me of the Pistol Annie's song Hell on Heels (which is my current karaoke favorite). Love your design; that doily is just fabulous!

Your mojo might be out of whack but this card certainly isn't. It's great as usual. Love the various textures.

I think you got your mojo back! Your card is stunning!

Katie said...

It might have been hiding but I think your mojo kicked into high gear for this one for sure! I love how you worked with the sketch- it's the perfect balance- and I can totally see the photo inspiration in the finished card. You should be happy with the end result because it turned out awesome :) Hugs, Katie

This is awesome Regan! I think we could all use a Sugar Daddy just to buy our crafting supplies! LOL! I'm sure the hubby wouldn't mind not having that expense anymore!
Let me know what you think of the book. I'm thinking about it for an upcoming trip when I will have lots of reading time. ;o)
