Tea and Crumpets and a Sassy Studio Designs New Release




Greetings from Great Britain!  Tea is served... Would you like one lump or two?  Welcome to the Sassy Studio Designs "It's a Small World" International Honeys blog hop!  If you've arrived here from Ruza's blog then you are on the right track!  If you arrived here by happy accident, you will want to go back and start from the beginning at the Sassy Studio Designs blog so you don't miss anything.  Here is the complete hop order in case you get lost.  It's a rather long one so be sure to have that spot of tea handy!


**Regan** (you are here)

Kim
Jan - July Guest Designer
Sandy - PCP Special Guest

 Okay, so here are the details...  Hop around the world with us, leaving comments as you go.  Two lucky winners will be selected at random from among the comments to receive one image from the new collection!  When you are done hopping, create a project featuring something about YOUR favorite country and tell us why that country holds a special place in your heart.  You MUST use a SSD image to participate.  Deadline to enter is July 27th at midnight PDT.  If you are the lucky crafter selected as winner by design team vote you will win ALL SIX new International Honey images!  All winners will be announced on July 31st.  

My card today features Great Britain Honey.  She is a such a little darling, isn't she?  Besides the amazing United States where I live, I have to say that England is probably my other favorite country!  I am a fan of the King Arthur legend and find the British royalty fascinating!  There is so much history on this one small island!  I was lucky enough to visit in 2001!  (For my honeymoon, a visit that was perhaps THE highlight of a short-lived marriage!  lol)  I have colored her with Copic and Prismacolor Art Markers.  This paper I found in a forgotten stash and I'm pretty sure it was purchased 10 years ago with the intention of scrapbooking honeymoon photos!  I was happy to stumble upon it this evening, though!  Flowers are a combination of Recollections and WOC.  The London chipboard sticker is also Recollections, and I finished off with a few pearls and a Tim Holtz metal corner.  The sketch is the current Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge layout (#163).

Ready to head off of to your next international destination?  Head on over to the fabulously talented Rebecca's blog where she has been practicing her Russian!

Thanks for joining us for our new release hop and we hope to see you on our party blog this evening for a chat with members of the SSD design team tonight beginning at 7pm PDT/10pm EDT!  Pip, pip, cheerio!

I'd like to enter this card in the following challenges:
- Raise the Bar: #108-Red, White, and Blue 
- Try It On Tuesday: So Very British   
- Stampin' Royalty: #133-Anything Goes 
- Crop Stop: #81-Let the Corners Shine
