SASI Challenge

September 22nd, 2008

I hosted a swap recently and I thought it would be fun to include a little challenge in their return packages.  I stamped up some images from the Taylored Expressions SASI set Sweet Celebration and included some swatches of SU Prints Pack dp and asked everyone to make something and upload it to SCS today. I have no idea how many people will play, but here’s my card.  🙂



I think the card is pretty self-explanatory – just a simple, fun, happy card.  This is one of my very favorite SASI images.  I colored the cake plate with a silver Sakura Glitter Gel pen and highlighted the cake and writing with a Sakura Stardust pen.  The cherry is a Kaiser Craft hot pink rhinestone.  I cut out the image with Nestabilities and the orange ribbon is from my stash.


Check out the challenge creations here.  I hope someone plays!  LOL!  Busy week ahead as we prepare to completely redecorate our bedroom (including paint and carpet) this weekend.  We’ll be putting up the chandelier that Curt gave me for my birthday back in February and we’ll get our antique bed from lay-away.  I’ve had a new comforter set for about three years sitting in the package waiting for this make-over.  I need to find curtains and a mirror and some other finishing touches.  I couldn’t be more excited.


Oh and a puppy update – we cancelled the appointment Saturday and didn’t go see them.  We spent more time talking and evaluating.  My dear friend Brenda was  hugely helpful in talking me through the current situation with our birds.  We’ve been having a terrible time with R.B. (our Greenwing Macaw) bitng me over the past year. I haven’t been able to handle him at all in the last several months and it breaks my heart.  We realized that we really need to focus on those issues before we can consider adding a dog to our *flock*.  It made me very sad, but I know it’s the best thing for now and I felt a peace once we decided.  Thanks to those of you who shared with me your experiences with Eskies.  I loved reading about them and hope one day in the future we’ll be able to have one.  Beaker (our Red Front Macaw) is a Mama’s bird all the way and absolutely loves to cuddle with me on the couch.  Lots of people don’t realize just how cuddly some birds can be – beaker is almost like a puppy in that way!


Have a great week – thanks for stopping by!
