Sassy Tic Tac Toe and my Favorite Bloggers

Hello!  I'm just popping in with my (last minute) entry for Sassy Studio Designs' Off To Find a Wizard new release Tic Tac Toe challenge.  I couldn't pass on a chance to win all the fabulous images from The Wizard of Oz Sassy release!  I actually already won Scarecrow Sassy during the teasers, and I've used her here.  She is colored with Copics, and I added a little doodling to the image panel.  I actually have two rows completed because I wasn't sure if diagonal counted so there is brick (embossed o the designer paper behind the image panel), bling, and flowers as well as brick, yellow, and ribbon.

The sketch is from Tuesday Morning Sketches (#196), and papers are My Mind's Eye Stella and Rose - Hattie.  I'm also going to enter her in SSD Dare To Be Sassy Thursday #175 - Kentucky Derby (Hats).

I'm also including my Blog Every Day in May post here today too.  It's been a busy weekend and I didn't have time to get to it earlier.  We are supposed to publicly profess our love for a fellow blogger.  I have two blogs that I follow voraciously!  One is Keiki Kai and the other is Saturated Canary.  Both blogs are written by strong women whose writing styles I adore!  Kerri is the author of Keiki Kai which chronicles her baby son Kai's fight with cancer and her thoughts and feelings as she deals with his diagnosis, his treatment, his death, and life after Kai.  Kerri's writing is eloquent and raw.  She brings you right into her life and you can't help but feel with her!  She is one amazing mama because she continues to love and honor Kai with the non-profit Kai's Village, an organization that  provides community based support for families facing the challenges of disability and serious illness.  I had the pleasure of meeting Kerri in person for the first time yesterday when I volunteered for Kai's Village at a road race they put on.  I hope to do more for this cause in the future.  Having a son not much older than Kai, I was deeply affected by Kerri's story and a realization of how cancer can change anyone's life at any time!

The other blogger I love is Krista Smith of Saturated Canary!  Not only do I think Krista is an uber talented artist, I think she is a pretty incredible mom, wife, person, and blogger!  I love her fun writing style and how she makes you feel like a friend over for coffee!  I could gush all day, but I have to get back to the craft desk for one more card before bed.  I am absolutely swamped with deadlines this week and I'm not even close to being on track!  I spent a good portion of the day coloring (completing six images in between playing outside with Kayne, laundry, vacuuming, and assorted other tasks).  If today was any indication, it's going to be a looong, exhausting week!  And yet I still {heart} procrastination! lol  I guess I just work better under pressure (or so I keep telling myself!)

Thanks for stopping by!
