Strike A Post

Morning Peeps,

It's time for another Simply Sassy Blog Hop showcasing Release 9, and again I'm sure you wont be disappointed.  If you have arrived from our special guest Elaine, then your on the right track.  If not hop on over HERE to get started.

I have used the image "Strike A Pose".  She so reminds me of my daughter who never seems to be able to have her picture taken without some sort of pose, but then again all the girls in her pictures are the same, pouting and posing, lol.




You can't see all the steps so I have tried to take photo's from different angles. 







Ingredients:-
Simply Sassy Strike A Pose - click on the picture below
Papers by Pion
Bazzil cardstock
Magnolia Doohickey Doily flowers, butterfly and heart swirl
Leaves and dragonfly (lefthand back step) are lasercut chipboard pieces from Make It Crafty and Quixotic Paperie
Green and Pink Acrylic Paint
Tim Holtz Film Strip Stamp
Staz on ink, flowers and accetate from stash
Cardbase from Whichcraft UK
Release 9 is available to purchase today from Funky Kits click on the picture to go shopping.  



Remember to leave a comment on all the DT posts by noon GMT on Monday as we each have a stamp to give away, woo hoo.

Wait..... before you go, if anyone is interested there is a new blog, Marianne Designs HERE , hop on over for all the deets.

Next on the hop is the fabulous Erica. Have fun.

I'd like to enter my card into the following challenges:-
Lollipop Crafts - Anything Goes
2 Sisters - Anything Goes
Totally Gorjuss - Punch or Die
Papercutz - Anything Goes 
Crafty Cardmakers - Butterflies
Happileigh Scrapping - Shaped Card
