Officially…It’s FALL! Sassy #83

Sept27 blk

Fall, my favorite time of year! I love sweaters, hoodies, dressing in layers, colors, the crispness in the air, the crunch of leaves under my feet, hot tea, cocoa and cider, the fresh air smell… ahhh
… and it means Winter is close behind, which I also love!

Now before I share my card and our challenge… we’ve got some changes to tell you about AND
Sassy Cheryl’s special!

  • We are going to make the challenges less challenging.  Think simplified! Challenges will be things like, use a Die Cut, Anything Goes, use Blue, etc. 
  • The DT will be required to use a Sassy Cheryl’s  image, but those who would like to enter will not be required to do so.  We just want YOU to be able to participate.
    Also, if you do decide to use an SC image, you’ll be counted twice in the drawing!

Our Sassy Challenge is to use
Fall colors


This is Cup of Cocoa, isn’t she a cutie-patootie! She’s colored with Copics and a Sakura white gel pen. I cut around just the back of the chair to insert my Basic Grey “wallpaper” and popped the chair up on dimensionals.

For the floor, I just used more Copics, the chisel end, dragging them along the cardstock. The “baseboard” is just a scrap colored with a Copic.

For more Sassy inspiration,
see what the other girls have done!

What an adorable card, Dawn! It definitely reminds me of my DDs enjoying a hot cup of coffee/tea/hot chocolate/spiced cider in the morning.

Your colouring is, as usual, wonderful! I love way you made the floor. Wowza.
