SSD May Release Blog Hop!

***If you're looking for the Hambo Stamps' Channel Surfing Blog Hop, click HERE!***


Welcome to Sassy Studio Designs’ May Release!  Wow, what a FABULOUS collection of images!!  There are 8 brand new images available in the SSD store today- Classic Marie, Sexy Marie, Effie Trinket, Effie Trinket #2, Katniss- girl on fire, and 3 graduate images!  You should have arrived here from Shari’sblog.  If you didn’t, please make sure to start at the beginning at the Sassy Studio Designs’ blog.  You don’t want to miss any of the fabulousness we have in store for you!!

What’s a blog hop without PRIZES and there will be prizes!  3 new images for the grand prize winner chosen randomly from the comments left on the New Release blogpost on the SSD Blog, and 1 image each for 2 winners who will be randomly chosen from comments left on the DT’s blogs.  Winners will have until Wednesday night, May 23rd, to enter since we have such a long hop!

The “theme” this month is FLOWERS.  We are to use flowers on our project, but we are also to tell about our favorite flowers.  I am a wildflower kind of girl…don’t get me wrong, roses are beautiful, and if someone wants to send them to me, I’ll be more than willing to take them- but my favorite flowers are flowers that can be found growing along the roadside or in the woods- daisies, tiger lilies, and my all-time favorite flower- the Black-Eyed Susan. 

Black-Eyed Susan
Rudbeckia hirta
Maryland designated the Black-Eyed Susan as the official state flower in 1918. It is a daisy-like wildflower with yellow petals and a dark brown center that grows in dry places. A member of the sunflower family and native to the United States east of the Rocky Mountains, Black-Eyed Susans are common in Maryland fields and roadsides.

OK, now it’s time for me to show you my card…I am using Effie Trinket #2 from The Hunger Games. I had so much fun using the first Effie Trinket image that I just couldn’t wait to start coloring this new one!  I hope you like it!!

  33. Gorgeous card. My daughter told me off for colouring Effie's hair orange (apparently it is meant to be pink!) Anyway, the orange and green looks superb together and I love it.
    Just flicked through some of the other comments - I had the same trouble getting past admiring that cute kitty at the top! It really grabs your attention.
