Friends of Sweet 'n Sassy Blog Hop

Happy Birthday, Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps! A group of "Friends of SNSS" are joining together to celebrate this milestone birthday... I bought my first SNSS sets almost 2 years ago after the January 2011 release (there was a particular bird image I fell in love with), and was a guest designer a few months later in March. I found a kindred spirit in Korin, and a few months later, she asked if I'd consider expanding my dkdesigns stamp line as a designer for her company. It's been a blessing to work alongside her, and even to meet her in person when we were in the States this year... it's fun to share both our sweet and sassy sides, and to have the assurance that we'll be friends for eternity. Love you, girl!!

So, on to the fun stuff... four random commenters will receive a $15 store credit during this hop - so the more comments you leave, the better chance you have at winning! Comments must be left by midnight EST Friday, November 30th, and winners will be announced on the SNSS Blog on December 1st at 8am EST.  Links to all the participants' projects can be found in the thumbnails at the bottom of my post. Have fun!


I used acrylic paints to color my focal panel, stamping additional images from the Vintage Postcard and Grunge Borders sets and Light of Christmas Background with Versafine inks. The candle (Christmas Light set) is pieced with Basic Grey cardstock.


It's hard to see, but the circle glow around the candle is actually the postmark stamp from the postcard set. Love that little detail!
