Just Made it… By a Thread! #77 So Sassy!

If you’re looking for my
ODBD Special Mid-Month Release,


Aug16 framed

Whew! I’ve been playing catch-up what with being at the fair all last week then working 2 days at Stampaway… I had mountains of laundry and floors that hadn’t been vacuumed in…um… well, you get the idea! (yeah, nobody but me knows how to run the vacuum!! LOL)

And speaking of Stampaway… I got to meet Kecia!! Such a sweetie! I’m glad you introduced yourself, Kecia! It’s always fun to meet my cyber buddies!


Our Sassy Challenge this week,
again from that Sassy Jeni,
is Sewing, real or faux.

When I saw Little Knitter I knew I had to have her! Being a hand-spinner and knitter she is just perfect!


Isn’t she just adorable! I colored her with Copics, then cut her out with scissors and craft knife. She’s set atop a Cheery Lynn die, Dainty Dutch Deco Frame. I hand stitched some yarn around the inside.
The sentiment is from
Our Daily Bread designs, Sewn With Love, and is machine stitched. Spellbinders Labels 8 trimmed around embossed area then I used the same die for the mat… “faux color” cardstock by using a Copic marker to match on white cs.

Your post title is FUNNY considering the challenge is stitching. . . .! Was that intentional!?!?!?!
This is a stunning card Dawn. It's gorgeous! And I love the sentiment. It's perfect for this image.

Hi Dawn! I'm with Cheryl...your post title is brilliantly clever!! You are too funny! Amazing how vacuuming and cleaning toilets can only be done by the lady of the house, huh?! Well...look on the bright side, job security...or something like that! LOL!! Your card is so gorgeous! I love the DPs and that die cutout is absolutely perfect!! I've been eyeing this Sassy Cheryl image ever since she came out...so dang cute! And your coloring is bee-u-tiful!! Hugs. Pat

Dawn, I'm in love with this card. I've got to check out the Die Company, as this one is perfect. As usual your coloring is amazing and what a perfect sentiment. Now I've got to go see if I've already purchased this sweetheart or need to while the sale is on. Believe me, I understand about no one running the vacuum but me.

Kecia is SO sweet! LOVE the sweet colours & the texture of that die. WOWzers it's amazing. I always want doilies, but want them acid free. Who knew? (You, as usual!)
