Which WITCH???

Mid October and it is FINALLY starting to feel a little bit like Fall.  I’ve been spending some time working on some Halloween cards.  No scary witches here…..only the cutest of the cute images.  It’s always so interesting how a different card sketch or some different color choices can change the entire look of an image!!  They are all so fun to color, I’m not sure I could pick my favorite!

Risky Business

Almost 4 months between posts………EEK!!!  With Missy & I both getting a child (young adult) ready for college, jewelry and card making have definitely been on the back burner.  After three weeks, everyone is settled in. Slowly (VERY slowly) the moms are getting adjusted.  I finally sat down last weekend with my copic markers!  I knew there were some special birthdays coming up, so I thought I better get a jump on some cards.  Sooooo, as I share the first card….don’t judge!  It’s all in good fun!  I had seen this freebie Saturated Canary image from the ever so popular Fifty Shades of Grey book series.  I thought it would be so fun & easy to color, but honestly…..who are you going to give THIS to?  Didn’t seem like the best card to send my 95 year old granddad…tee hee!!!!  A couple of weeks ago, one of the girls I work with was reading a book that she could NOT put down.  When I realized it was the second book in the “Grey” series, I knew who I could send the card to.  Soooo…..I’m hoping I don’t offend anyone, as it is all in good fun!

Okay…..I’ve GOT to offset this with something a little lighter!  My friend, Audra is celebrating a birthday.  I found this sweet Saturated Canary image, also a freebie, and decided to color it up for Audra’s special day!

This cutie is colored with copics:  Hair- E25, 31, 50. Skirt-E44, 43, 42, 41, 40.  Shirt- E42, 41, 40/BG 13, 11, 10.  Boots- V17, 15, 12/E59, 55, 53.  The clouds are made with a homemade template and Tim Holtz ink, sponged.

If you haven’t already….check out the great free images on Pinterest.  Thanks for letting me share!  Happy weekend!

CLASS (of 2014) ACT!

WOW!!!  Thirteen years of hard work, carpools, sack lunches, field trips, & countless hours of volunteer work!!  Missy and I, who met when these two graduates started school together in kindergarten, survived the senior year and all the graduation festivities that have taken over our calendars the last several months!  We are so proud of these two.  They both graduated with honors.  Katie read scripture, and Austin gave the benediction at the baccalaureate service the evening before graduation.

Graduation 2014 046

Missy and I have some jewelry orders that we need to get caught up on.  In the wonderful craziness of life, we have had Sassy & Southern on the back burner.    I’m also a little embarrassed to say that I only made ONE graduation card this year.  I loved this image, Moka Skylar Graduate, from Taylored Expressions, so I bought her over a year ago.  Yesterday, I finally got enough free time to make a card for a special friend of Austin’s.  I had some leftover embellishment stickers from our graduation brunch, so I decided to also decorate the inside of the card.  She is colored in copics, and has some stickles to bling up her tassel, diploma, and shoes.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and thanks for letting us share with you!  We hope your summer is off to a safe and happy start!

Pause Button???

WOW!  Trisha and I just aren’t really sure how we got to this point……we are the moms of GRADUATING SENIORS!  This semester could NOT be going any faster!  We wish that there was a PAUSE button but we haven’t found it yet!  We will do a post soon of all of the fun activities that are involved in this exciting season including Senior sports seasons, prom, 18th birthdays, receiving Senior yard signs, Graduation parties,not to mention GRADUATION etc, but for now we just wanted to remind you that with this VERY busy season that we are in, if you are wanting to order a Mother’s Day pendant we will need your complete order with photo and inscription for the back NO LATER than Friday, April 18th!  Please feel free to email us at missyandtrisha@gmail.com with any questions!

It’s a SPRING THING!!!

Spring has (almost) sprung!  Next to Fall, Spring is my FAVORITE time of year.  It’s such a busy time!  There is so much to celebrate!  Both of my boys have Spring birthdays and so does Missy’s daughter!  Austin, my oldest, just turned 18 on Wednesday.  My sweet friend and DOTY, Betty Gant, sent me a perfect card idea for my favorite musician!  I totally cased the card, but had to alter the colors to use what I had at home.  Thanks, Betty, for the great idea!  It turned out better than I expected!!  In addition to all the birthday celebrations, we have a sweet co-worker who is expecting her first baby!  Her daughter is due in early May, so I also got busy making her a baby girl card.  Since I have two boys, the girl things are always extra fun!!

March…..It’s also time for Spring Break (YIPPPEEEEEEEE!!!!!) and St. Patrick’s Day.  I’ve been looking for an easy project, so this St. Patty’s Day treat holder (using all punches) seemed like a great idea.  There is a thin mint peppermint patty behind each Leprechaun face.

Spring is also the start of baseball & softball season!!!  These early spring games are still cold, but warmer weather will be here before we know it!  Our custom photo pendants are the perfect way to show your support for your favorite baseball/softball player!!baseballpendant2012[1] photo 1 (12)

Don’t forget that Mother’s Day is soon approaching.  Our pendants and charms, ranging in size from 1/2″ to 1-1/2″ make a perfect and personal gift for any mother or grandmother.  Please contact us at missyandtrisha@gmail.com with your order or any questions.  We look forward to hearing from you!

Happy Spring, and thank you for letting us share!!

HAPPY LOVE DAY

Happy Valentine’s Day!!  Whew!  This working real jobs is taking some adjusting for Missy and me.  It’s quite possible, since our last post was 2 months ago, that these jobs may also be cutting into our crafty and creative time!  Even though I had to step down from the Design Team at Sister Act, I am still making cards.  It’s not nearly as often, but I think I’m enjoying it more.  I am able to make and send cards to those I love.  Before, I felt like a card maker who didn’t send cards.  I was just trying to meet a deadline.  Sooooo I thought I would share my Valentine card.  Same card, different images.  All of the images are freebies that I found on Pinterest!  It’s hard to beat that!

In addition….Missy and I are still making our Sassy photo jewelry.  Here is just one sample of a Valentine’s Day order that we did.

Sorry for the short post!  We really just wanted everyone to know that we are still alive and still doing what we love.  Since both of us have started working, and both of us have seniors this year…..Our already crazy lives have gotten a lot crazier!  Love and blessings to all of you!  Thanks for stopping by, and thanks for letting us share!!!

 

 

“SNOW” much fun!!!!!

Weather in the Nashville area has been COLD!  We even had our first ice storm and “snow”.  So funny and predictable in this area.  The suggestion, possibility, or threat (no matter how remote) of inclement weather can shut down schools and clear grocery shelves of milk and bread in record time!  It’s never really that bad, and by 11am, guess where everybody is?  At the grocery store with their kids, who are home for the day!

The cold weather hasn’t kept us from the Sassy work room!  Missy and I have been working hard on Christmas orders.  It is our favorite and busiest time of the year!  We’ve had quite a few Christmas ornament orders.  The thing I love about these is that you can keep them out all year.  We like to use clear and silver beads so that your ornament is not restricted to Christmas display.

Friday also means that we are having a new Card Challenge at Sister Act Card Challenge Blog.  In keeping with the cold and snowy theme, I used this cutie pie from Victoria Case.  She makes me want to grab a cup of hot cocoa and solve the World’s problems!!!  I colored her w/ copics and used a sketch for inspiration! I added lots of Stardust Stickles to the snow and her hat and sweater!  The paper was from an old stash that I had.  I have been using my Martha Stewart snowflake punch a lot!! I also pulled out my snowflake embossing folder from Cuttlebug.
