TIOT:some sass for you today!

hello all!

So sorry for being so quiet lately – i really do have SO much to share with you!  i was on a cruise last week to the bahamas!  yep – so so much fun.  then i came back to the power cord for my laptop no longer working.  ordered a new one, paid for expedited shipping, got it yesterday – they sent the wrong one *SCREECH*  so i STILL have no access to my computer and EVERYTHING i need to do my many jobs.  on top of that i came home super sick and am still feeling pretty awful.  needless to say i am having an incredibly difficult time getting back into the swing of things!


A new POM challenge kicks off today on The Outlawz – it is anything goes so please join in!!!  you could win a $50 gift certificate to Oozak plus 3 free digi images from Anne’s digital images.  That is a heck of a good prize package so please come join us!

Today is the last day for the current TTCRD challenge – Summer Time!  the design team has some fantastic projects up to inspire you AND you could win some free digi images from Glitterbabe’s!  then be sure to check in tomorrow for the next challenge!


i just love the most recent release from SCACD and wanted to share another one with you today – this is Femme Fatale from the Retro group:
I paired her with papers from the Kaisercraft English Rose paper pad.

She is colored with Polycolor colored pencils and i used the Derwent Blending Pecil for blending (this method keeps the colors vibrant).  then I used a Derwent Metallic pencil on her shoes and gloves. Her necklace, bracelet and the gems on her dress are done with Spica Glitter pens.

The embellishments are made using Viva Decor Transparent Crystal Gel and a silicone mold – both available at Susana’s. After the fowers were dry and i popped them out of the mold i took a bit of Pink Bubblegum Perfect Pearls powder with my fingertip and brushed it over the flowers lightly to catch the raised portions. it gives them a bit of shimmer and a hint of color. These embellishemnts are so cool and so easy to make! you can watch a couple videos on the Crystal Gel on you tube.
i will get some pics up of our cruise and tell y’all all about it as soon as i get my bearings back!  that’s what happens when you wait 4 years to take a vacation 😛  i also have an exciting giveaway coming up – all you cricut lovers will want to stay tuned…

  1. Man, when it rains, it pours!! Hope they get you another power cord FAST!! I hate using a different computer. I feel lost without all of my “stuff” and to be able to get to it quickly. Your coloring is amazing!! Love the gradiation in her dress and really love how vibrant it is! Your rock Sistah!!

  2. Love your card, Marti, and the cool flowers. Due to your neat videos, I bought some of this from Susana, and hope to try it soon. Looks so awesome and fun.

    Speaking of fun, looks like you sure were enjoying your vacation, how wonderful! Four years is too long to wait though. You’ve got to do that more often to maintain sanity and less stress!!!
