Sunny & Sassy!

Hello everyone--How ya doing today!?  We're expecting severe thunderstorms today so I'm praying the power doesn't go out cuz' I've got some videos to get done--yikes!  Plus my one dog, Casey HATES storms and literally hides on my lap all day which means getting anything done is impossible, lol!  I'm hoping to have Class 4 for the Color Me Creative Classroom done by the end of next week, but with everything else I have to get done for my DT's, the next issue of the magazine and the Dirty Dozen projects done it's a tough one I tell ya! (BTW, stop by the Classroom Site HERE to see the new & awesome design that Veronica of VKDesign Co. created for me--you can grab the new blinkie too if you'd like on my sidebar)!!

For those of you that would like an update on my resident ghostie--well it hasn't been back for a bit.  The last appearance was a few weeks ago when I think my stress limits were the highest--I was vacuuming when the lights flicked off and on, my vacuum died out of nowhere and my kitchen clock fell off the wall & shattered.  It was so freaky that even my hubby was a lil' bit freaked out---the vacuum never did recover so we had to buy a new one.  But some people have said that ghost energy is attracted to negative energy and I certainly had a lot of it the past month & a half--but since we took our trip to NY I haven't had any weird occurrences or visits.

And thought I'd share a pic of my daughter with you since she wasn't in the Cherry Blossom slideshow, hee hee!  She'll love this :o) (NOT, but I love to get her riled up just for fun every now & then, hee hee)


-In order to take care of my 2 businesses and my other work more completely I had to (very sadly I might add) drop out of two of my DT's.  So I'm no longer with Mo's Digital Pencil or Pink Cat Studio---although you will still see me using plenty of their images.  It was hard to step down, but I had to make the decision for my own peace of mind and stress level but I'll miss them both a lot, both Melissa & Mo are wonderful ladies and I'm happy to call them my friends as well!  But Pink Cat Studio is looking for new designers HERE and Mo's Dream Team is looking for a guest designer HERE for the month of May--so go apply and show 'em whatcha' got!

Sunning Ladie Sadie!!

I've got a fun project for ya today--at least it was a lot of fun for me to make!  You know how I love those Humorous Seniors from I Brake For Stamps and I had to pull one out to use today!  I wanted to make a lil' gift pack of cards since it's been awhile since I've done that--so I used a fun and easy tutorial from the Scor-Pal site called "Sassy Stationary Stand" HERE (except I added some fun handles to mine so it looks like a beach tote)!!

This stamp is called "Sunning Sadie" and isn't this ole gal a barrel of fun--love her--you can find a bunch of these fun seniors HERE at I Brake For Stamps (don't forget to use the coupon code "SAVE10SUZANNE" for 10% off your whole order).  The papers I used are from Basic Grey's "June Bug" line--they're so bright & cheery, perfect for summer!  The sentiment is from PTI's set "A Day at the Beach" and then I've added a few fun buttons to match.  This holder holds 4 cards, 2 of each design & the matching envies.

Sunning Sadie is colored with Copics--love that bathing suit, it's her version of "itty bitty polka dot bikini", lol!  I added some diamond glaze to her drink (lemonade or maybe a cocktail ya think?) and glasse and stickles to her hat and chair!  The background navy cs got embossed with the CB folder "swiss dots".

I made 4 cards (")--2 of each design including this one and the one below.  I just used more June Bug papers and some more stamps from the PTI set.  These are great for any occasion and make a great gift set!

That's all for me today--hope to see ya back tomorrow!


  1. I just love this card Suzanne! I love the vibrant colours! You are such a pro at using those copics! WOW!

  2. I think the thunderstorms you are getting today are heading my way tomorrow. So thanks for the fore warning... and so happy to hear that your little ghost hasn't been back. That would totally freak me out.

    Your card is unbelievable, your coloring amazing.

  3. What a fabulous card, love it!!

  4. OMGosh Suzanne this card is absolutely darling! My hair isn't gray but looks just like me at the beach! LOL!! I love the tote! What a great idea! I am going to have to scraplift lift your idea! It is entirely toooo cute!

  5. I was thrilled to put your new blinkie on my blog. I am so thrilled with the card today sweetie.
    I will miss you at Mo's and Pink Cat Studio but I totally understand, was amazed at all you do now. I am so enjoying your classes.

  6. Love the card. Your ghostie was probably glad to have the house all to him/herself and apparently isn't crazy about your vacuum.

  7. I knew you were superwoman...but nice you ar getting a breather. I will miss seeing those creations but I LOVE your new journey. We are all behind you.

  8. Very fun card. It just made me giggle. Love this card & bag set. I had to drop out one of my DTs too due to a busy life and stress level too. Now I am taking easy and relax. So how fun to surf around other blogger's blogs.
    See now Suzanne?! I am coming and enjoying your blog, lol

  9. I understand completely that you can't do everything, Suzanne! You will make yourself ill trying to keep it all up.
    What a Fab and Fun set this is today. Love the 'old lady'. I keep saying I have to get some of these stamps!! What fun and great colours :o)
    Hugs, Candy

  10. The card is so bright and cheery. And it is a parent's job to embarrass their children.

  11. Dear Suzanne

    I had to laugh so much about the image of the old lady. This is just too cute. Congratulations on your set! Great job!
    Ohhhhh, I went on youtube and found all your video tutorials on copics etc. Suzanne, you are a genius and my hero. These videos are terrific and soooo helpful. If I ever thought that I know how to use copics... When I look at your video's, I know that I am still a beginner. *lol*
    Thank you so much for the time you took to make all the tutorials.

    BIG hugs and have a wonderful and relaxing weekend!

  12. Hi Suzanne,
    I love this project. It's so funny image. Love the colour on her body, wow great tan :)))

  13. Suzanne, I was so happy to design your Classroom! You are always so wonderful to work with!


  14. I just love your cards made with I Brake for Stamps. As always a fabulous job and it did make me giggle!

  15. Sadie is just too marvelous for words, Suzanne!!! That card is amazing, and I love the coloring!! I'm off for a fun weekend as well, so hope I have as much fun as Sadie is having.......

    Glad to hear your ghostly visitors have gone.......have a relaxing weekend with the storms...hee hee

  16. ok- I have never seen this line before- I had to go to the web site right away and order stuff - even though shipping to canada will be unreasonable- but I had to have some of the senior stamps - too fun


I appreciate all your lovely comments and taking the time to stop by! hugz,Suzanne
