Sassycheryls Challenge #22

Let's stump Sassy Cheryl.
The Sassy gals have been working behind the scenes to stump the boss. Sassy Cheryl claims that she can tell which design team member made a particular card by just looking at it. So, we are putting Sassy Cheryl to the test.
Want to play along?  It's easy... just enter our challenge for this week. Use a Sassy Cheryl image and the challenge criteria "Thinking of you". Link up your post at our challenge page using Mr. Linky. Then take a look at Sassy Cheryl's guess... is she right? Or is she wrong?  Just tell us what you think by leaving a comment on the challenge page..then you'll get an extra entry in our random draw this week if you've guessed right. To recap: participate in the challenge and get one entry... participate and guess correctly, get another entry.
The winner will receive a $10 Gift Certificate to Sassy Cheryl's shop!  How cool is that?

Here is a collage of all the cards…….just match the designer to the card you think she made 


Here is my card?

Squigglefly Sneak Peek

Hi everyone.  It is a very stressful time for me here.  My Dad has been in the hospital for the last three weeks.  His cancer has come back and he does not want treatment.  He is 80 and very tired.  I will be doing alot of driving in order to be with him when I don’t have to work.  I want to spend as much time with him as I can.

It is amazing how therapeutic making cards can be.  I was really upset with life a couple nights ago and decided to go and color some images.  The next thing I knew I had this card made.  I felt much calmer by the time I was done.  My card is a Diorama card.  I haven’t made one of these in a couple years.  I would like to thank Alina for inspiring me to make one again.


The image I used on this card is called “Monkey Scare”.  It will be released with many other new images tomorrow at

A Card For Bella Tucker

This card is made with a free image provided by Lynne Stansbery over at Squigglefly.  Bella Tucker is a little girl from USA. Here is her story-

Bella Tucker is an 8-year-old girl who attends South School Elementary in Londonderry, New Hampshire and is a member of the Phantom Gymnastics team. Bella came down with a near fatal infection on Easter Sunday. Doctors gave little hope for this third graders’ survival, but after five days in a coma she miraculously survived Streptococcus Pneumonia Sepsis with DIC (disseminated intravascular coagulation).

Unfortunately, her survival from this infection was not without significant cost.  The infection caused extensive tissue damage, and on April 27, 2010, Bella underwent quadruple amputation surgery and is currently facing an extremely long and hard recovery at Children’s Hospital in Boston with extensive rehabilitation to follow, as she learns to live life without her limbs.

To find out more go here.

Here is my card-


Take a moment and hug your children.
