Simply Sassy Blog Hop

Maria and her talented team of ladies are having a blog hop today, over on the Simply Sassy Blog. They even have a guest joining them...and that guest would be me! My regular readers all know that I'm a huge Sassy fan and this latest release is my favourite set...so far :)

If you've come here from the gorgeous creation on Kathrin's blog then you are on the right path, but if not then you really need to start at the beginning over on the Simply Sassy blog because each member of the DT- and myself too- will be giving away a surprise stamp from this collection to one random commenter. All you have to do is leave a comment at each blog before Monday 25th July 12 noon GMT.
Now on to my card...


Being the guest, I was given first choice of which stamp I would like to use, and I just had to pick Butterfly Girl, she is gorgeous and I love the expression on her face! As usual she's been coloured with DI's. The papers are First Edition Summer Breeze, the sentiment is Whimsy and a birthday gift from Maria. The flower is an MFT Upsy Daisy die and the leaves are from a fabulous Spellbinder set off a very dear friend of mine in America. The little butterfly was the perfect size and so delicate and pretty, another MFT set, a birthday gift off my sweet buddy Amanda

All the fabulous Sassy stamps you'll see on the hop are available to buy now over at...


Mr Funky Kits man Mark has a very special price for you if you wish to buy the full set of six stamps but only for the launch weekend, so don't delay and go fill your baskets :)
Next stop on the hop is the lovely Tracy and I know she will have something amazing to show you. Don't forget to leave a comment on each blog!


Many thanks to Maria and all the DT ladies for letting me join you on the hop xx
Love Elaine xxx
