SSD Anniversary Blog Hop

Hello, and welcome to Sassy Studio Design's June release blog hop!  Sassy Studio Designs is celebrating their 4th anniversary in June and SSD's owner and artist, Lindsey, and her husband celebrated their wedding anniversary yesterday, so to help in the celebration, we are having an anniversary-themed release.  In honor of SSD's 4-year anniversary, Lindsey has re-created 4 of her older images...Tinker Sassy, Sweet Talk Sassy, Bubblegum Sassy, and Bubble Bath Sassy.  To add to the anniversary aspect of the hop, Kim, our Release Crew Guru, came up with the idea to create a project to celebrate a specific year anniversary.  Each anniversary has a "gift" that is traditionally given for that specific year.  Here is a list of those anniversary gifts...Annivesaries by Year.   There will be two ways for you to win...a random commenter will be picked from each blog to win the image that is featured on that blog.  There is also a second way you can win....if you can figure out which anniversary the project represents!

Okay, first of all, you should have arrived here from Michelle's blog.  If you did, great!  If not, make sure to go back to the SSD Blog and start the hop from the beginning!

Peter Pan was first released in theaters on February 5, 1953 so this is the 60th anniversary of it's release, so I was thrilled to be assigned the re-vamped Tinker Sassy image!  Here is my anniversary card using Tinker Sassy however, I did NOT chose 60th anniversary to use as my anniversary.  That would have been too easy! So, here's my card and you'll have to figure out which year anniversary it represents.  Good luck!

If you were able to figure out which anniversary my card represents, make sure to leave a comment below telling me!!!  Even if you can't figure it out, please leave a comment anyway...either way, you might win this image!!

Your next stop along your anniversary journey will be Lori's blog.  Here is the entire blog hop list just in case you get lost along with way:

Don't forget to leave comments on each blog for a chance to win!!!

DTBS #183- Tag Sale

Well, I've been having some health issues (herniated disk, not able to sit or stand for longer than 5 minutes) so I wasn't able to stamp.  After one series of injections, I am moving quite a bit better and was finally able to go upstairs and try to catch up...however, I didn't get this done in time for SSD's blog post.  Hey, late, but I'm getting there! ;)  Please stop by the Sassy Studio Designs blog to check out what the DT has created for this "tag sale" challenge.

My nephew just recently graduated from high school and this is the card that I made for him.  The challenge this week was to either make a tag or use a tag on our project, so I made a card with a tag.  After not creating for about a month, I'm pretty happy with how this turned out.  (Lori Craig, if you're reading this, I colored this image long before our Intermediate Copic Certification class, so just ignore the light blue shadow around the image!)

I used SSD's The Graduate image.  I hope you like it!

Stamps:  The Graduate (Sassy Studio Designs(, graduation circle digi (unknown)
Papers:  Basic Black (Stampin' Up), Neenah 80# white, patterned paper (ABC Primer by Graphic 45)
Ink:  Creamy Caramel for sponging
Accessories:  Copic Markers, sponge, pop dots, Cuttlebug, Nestabilities circle die, Tim Hold Idea-ology Philosphy Tags, glue dot

My dear friend, Gloria, inspired me to start a doodle journal.  I remember doodling on my papers and notebook covers when I was in middle school and this sure brings back a lot of memories!  I'm not good a free-hand drawing but I'm pretty happy with these.  Here are the first two pages in my new doodle journal- one a zentangle and the other just a doodle.

This next one I colored using Faber-Castell PITT big brush pens.

Can't wait to sit and do another one!!
