Simply Sassy Spotlight!

I was so excited when Maria Therese emailed me asking if she could spotlight ME on the Simply Sassy blog, I was so excited! I probably sent my resounding YES email in less than a minute afte I opened the email!!! LOL I aboslutely ADORE these simply sassy stamps and have inked them all up at least once since I got them. In less than a month which must be some sort of record! Usually I get a stamp I love and then I never stamp it! Crazy! So, in the spotlight she asked me a series of questions and asked for me to create a card just for the spotlight post. I used Luv a Latte above for my card. I initially created it for a magazine call but then realized that the style was just not for that magazine (not a lot of colored images in there) and since I loved it SO much, rather than send it in and get it rejected I kept it - I then used it for the spotlight which turned out to be PERFECT! You can check out the spotlight post on the Simply Sassy Blog.

This card I made using Birthday Witches! Isn't she cute?! I won her from a Simply Sassy blog hop in February. I think she can be used for many occasions and I love the play on wishes by using witches so I created the sentiment using my Dymo Caption Maker that I recently picked up from Archiver's. I've been wanting one of these label makers for AGES! The last one I bought from Wally world was a dud and I'm VERY happy that this one works. Now I want to get all different colors of labels!
