You’ll Be Seeing Lots of Sassy PINK! #84 Sassy Cheryl’s

Oct4 blk

To help promote Breast Cancer Awareness this month, our Sassy Challenges will all have something to do with PINK!

Don’t forget, we’ve simplified our challenges and you don’t have to use a Sassy Cheryl’s image to enter… BUT if you do you’ll be entered twice and have the chance to win  $5 toward your purchase at Sassy Cheryl’s!

Our Sassy Challenge this week is
PINK, Anything Goes.

Last week a very good friend of ours turned 97!! Can you image??!! Of course he got a sweet, mushy card on his birthday… but I wanted to do a snarky one too as he has a great sense of humor! He’s in great health mentally and physically too! Wow!


I just love the look on this Whoops!!! image! Perfect for so many occasions! The sentiment is computer generated. On the inside it says, “Hey, you still have a full deck… you just shuffle slower!”

I airbrushed this while still in the Spellbinders die, then sponged the edges with Distress ink.

Oct4 clsup

She’s colored with Copics and white gel pen highlights, edges sponged with Distress ink and doodles.

Oct4 hair

I’ve wanted to try this technique I learned from cyber buddy, Mel, she uses this a lot and it always looks so cool!

After I colored her hair and skirt, I took a corsage pin and drug it on the cs, making strands of hair and sort of corduroy.

I hope he got as much a kick out of this card as I did making it!
