SSD Release Day Blog Hop!!!

Welcome to the Sassy Studio Designs' April Release Blog Hop!!! We have several brand new sassy images to share with you that are on sale in the SSD store today!! You should have arrived here from the multi-talented Lori's blog. If you did, you're on the right track!! If you didn't, please go back to the Sassy Studio Designs' blog to start the hop at the beginning. You won't want to miss a thing!!! Make sure to leave a comment on each of the DT blogs! There will be 2 prizes for one new image each for randomly drawn comments on the DT blogs. You never know which blog will have winners!

First of all, we are supposed to talk about our most favorite and our least favorite stamping tools. Coming up with my favorite tool was hard- there are so many that I love. Well, my absolute all-time favorite tool (are they really a tool??) would be my Copic Markers!!! I fell in love with them the first time that I used them!! I recently took the Copic Certification class, but I know I still have LOTS to learn about using them properly! My very close second favorite tool is my Cuttlebug. I probably use my Cuttlebug with embossing folders or die cuts on most cards that I make, including the one I'll be showing you in a minute. Coming up with a least favorite tool was easy- it's my Stamp-a-ma-jig. I have one that is still in the package unopened. I've used it at shoebox swaps and just don't like it...I know some people swear by them, but for me, it just doesn't work! We'd like you to leave a comment on the SSD blog telling us what YOUR most and least favorite tools are! If you do, you might win 3 of the brand new images!!

OK, now onto my card! The image that I am spotlighting today is called Elizabeth Laura Bennett and she is a beauty!! As soon as I saw her I thought "wedding card"! I need a card for an upcoming bridal shower and thought she would be perfect for it!

She is just so beautiful...

Now hop on over to the uber-talented Rachelle's blog. I know what she has to share will knock your socks off!!
