Sassy Suzi and Emmett

Hi everyone! I hope you're enjoying the first day of the new year. My friends overseas are already into Day 2. Yikes, time is already flying! {LOL}

I'm just popping in for a quick post to share two more cards I've completed for the 12 Days of Sketches at Splendid Stamping with The Greeting Farm. The first is based on Sketch 5 by Mercy Kerin (love her sketches!).

My card features the adorable Sassy Suzi, designed by one of my best buddies and La-La Land Crafts Design Teammate Kim Yu! Kim won the "Design My Sprout" contest at The Greeting Farm a few months ago... I was soooo thrilled and happy for her! I told her I wanted my stamp autographed. Well, she not only autographed one for me, but surprised me with it as a gift for my birthday!! I'm just embarrassed about how long it's taken me to ink her up, but hopefully it was worth the wait. I'm really pleased with how my Sassy Suzi turned out. Thank you Kim!!! This one's for you, girlfriend!

The DP is by October Afternoon from the Farm Fresh and Report Card collections.

My second card is for Jodi Collin's Twi-day Challenge. Behold Emmett Cullen, I mean Dressy Jeremy.
Okay, so I admit I'm not well-versed in all things Twilight, but Jodi's enthusiasm is infectious, so I'm compelled to do these challenges (besides which, of course, I LOVE all things TGF!!!). But I think I need to consult the web before I make my next card to make sure I get the hair right. I checked out The World of Twilight website AFTER making my card, to make sure I got the name right, and realized that I was coloring Emmett, not Jasper, and that he has DARK hair! Please bear with me Jodi! I'll do better next time, I promise!

Of course, now I understand why Emmett has such a "mad face." His quote on The World of Twilight website was "The hell you will. I'm not missing another fight." Now I recall that he was the one who fought to the death with that bad vampire to save Bella in the first Twilight movie.

This card follows Sketch 9 by the sweet and uber- talented Jessica Diedrich. (I wish I had one-tenth of her energy!) The DP is by Cosmo Cricket from the Earth Love collection.

Okay, my friends, I've got 4 done and 8 to go, so I'd better get back to it. I'm determined to finish this challenge, even if I have to stay up all night! Ha! And to those who I owe blog visits and emails, now you know what I'm doing when I should be surfing! Please forgive me!

Thanks for checking in. I'll be back again soon!
