Simply Sassy Pillow Talk

I can now post the remainder of the cards I made with the gorgeous Simply Sassy stamps from Sugar Nellie. I can't decide which one I like the most. Today I will say it's this stamp, but every time I use a different image I change my mind.
I simply adore the eyes and their faces, such beautiful faces and they colour so nicely too.

I wanted to colour this little lady in softer shades to match with the papers. The stripey one reminded me of PJ's I used to have as a child. As always she's coloured with Distress Inks, the DP is Prima Jack and Jill, a few pearls and a........what?? Since I always use punched flowers I thought I'd try something different and use a butterfly instead. Bad idea Elaine!
Miss Sassy would be terrified if a butterfly that big was fluttering around her head. Even worse, because of my stupid placement of the butterfly in relation to her hand, it looks like the butterfly has just flown off her finger! Blimey, I'm dumb some days.
I can't wait to see all the amazing cards that everyone in blogland will make with these little beauties.
I believe Funky kits will be sending out the pre-orders soon. I did order a set myself, thought they'd make a nice little candy for someone.

On the husband front, he is somewhere unpronounceable, begins with the letter Q, but I can't for the life of me remember where. His view on the Isle of Skye is that a lifetime wouldn't be enough time to spend there.
I can see he's missing me badly - not! But after the ear hole bashing he got on Sunday he has phoned me at least once a day!

Thanks for looking and for any comments you may leave.
Love Elaine xx

    Hugs Vicky xx

  3. Stunning!! i think that the butterfly actually looks pretty good on this card, love it!! cant wait for these darlings to be released

  4. Hi Elaine
    love your card, colouring is fantastic. Like you I can't decide which is my fave out of The Simply Sassy stamps, I love all of them lol.

    I have just finished a project for one of my grankids with the same paper pad as you have used on your card.

    Glad to hear hubby is loving Scotland, he's a lucky man. Pleased to hear he is ringing you every day, after the worry he caused you on Saturday. Looking on the brighter side though, just think he will have to bring you back a much bigger present to make it up to you rotfl.

  5. Wonderful card, gorgeous colours, fabby image. I love the butterfly, and I think it looks just right where it is :)

  6. I love how her stripey socks are echoed in the stripey paper. On the contrary - I'm going to disagree with you - the placement of that butterfly is perfect BECAUSE it looks as if it has just flown off her hand & her expression looks as if she is just surpised at it - the butterfly is her friend & it is larger than life because it is a fantasy one. It is actually quite a little tale in itself. Hope you're much better rested.

  10. Hi Elaine, actually that butterfly is perfect where it is, cause when I look at it, the expression on her face is like " What the heck is that doing here?" so I think it's perfect, btw, fabulous coloring once again. Glad to hear hubby is toeing the line now...LOL

  11. Elaine,
    You must know by now that as long as the artist can explain the picture it is fine...this is you sending Phil a little reminder that you can't sleep when you are worried about him! The butterfly is just flying closer to Phil! Lovely card and THIS is my favorite image...I think! lol I love your card!

  25. Hiya Elaine,

    How are hunny?

    Your card is soooo gorgeous,Stop putting yourself down wummin!

    Your not daft with your positioning with the butterfly! It's a card hunny not reality,that's why it's fun!

    Us crafters are so critical to ourselves & as women we critise ourselves too much!

    I know cause I do the same!

    Your card & full layout is excellent,the stamp is sooo cute as well.The sassey range is lovely!

    SOOO hubby is lost in Scotland,do ya want me to look for him? Hee hee as long as he keep in touch eh?

    Take care
    Big Hugs
