sassy sunday...

Welcome to 365 Cards Super Sketchy Sunday Crop Stop Week!!!

Happy August...can you believe it?!

How'd you all do with the 7 Sketches Week?! Sooo much fun!!!

This week we are teamed up with Crop Stop! One lucky winner will win a gift certificate to the fabbie Crop Stop Store! So link up your cards for this week's challenges {Aug 1-Aug 7th} by Sunday, August 8th at 11:59 PM EST, and you just might be the one to win!


Pam has designed yet another fabulous sketch for you to play with:



Here's my sassy take on the sketch:)


Chock filled with Sassafras goodness...the scallop panel is Stampin' Up Chocolate Chip, the buttons are PTI, the pearls are Want2Scrap and the letters are Cosmo Cricket Tiny Type..everything else is Sassafras!

Come and join in the fun!!!

**garage sale update**

Thanks for all the well wishes on my garage sale venture:) I spent SEVERAL hours prepping...it is soo much work, isn't it? We were open from 8 - 1 pm on Saturday..darin hung out with me...came in handy actually:) I averaged over $100 an hour...can you say woot woot?!!!

Here are some things I have learned...

Crafters are fabbie...you can sit & chat to total strangers about paper and stamps like you've known them for years...

I had a lot of questions like:

Do you own a store? {uh, no}

Are you a Stampin' Up Demonstrator? {I'd probably buy more than sell}

Are you a rep for a scrapbooking company? {I wish!!}

Wow, you're selling a lot of stuff... {why yes I am..}

You should be selling your Stampin' Up sets for $3 a set, they won't sell for what you have them priced at..{which is $3-$10...come on peeps...I'm practically giving those sets away...grrr}...

I took pics when I first opened up...darn things didn't turn out...I had and still have quite a bit of stuff but I managed to sell quite a bit...thrilled about that....I'll be having yet another sale on August 21st:)


It was actually 'chilly' during the sale, I had to grab a hat! Crazy I know because so many of you are still experiencing such heat waves...

Thanks sooo much for stoppin' by....I'll be slinging some blog candy this week...so be on the lookout:)

Cool colors and shape on the dear card! Glad to hear the GS went well Amy!
People can be so rude - telling you what you should sell the su stamps for...that should be what the cheapskates WANT to pay for them....not what you should sell it for...geez!! lol
You've still got the chomper thingie for me I hope! ;-)

Love your card! Love the yellow and brown! Was your gs a crafty sale or everything? That's a lot you made! Glad for you! So annoying when people comment on your prices!

Jenny said...

Great card, love it!! :) :) :) :) I wish I liked stampin up but i have 4 sets here and they are collecting dust. LOL and ya you are giving them away!!

Julie E said...

More yellow...hmmm, I am starting to like the color again :>)
Tag sale - LOL!!! I won't even breathe that word near my husband. I really need to purge some SU stamps myself, but I keep wondering if someday I will be sad I gave one away. Hmph, I just need to do it! My LSS has tag sales that I could bring it to, that would be so much easier than sitting around all day.
