Sassy Cheryl's Challenge--Hats Off!!

Hello, time for a new Sassy Cheryl's Challenge--Hats Off.  A very cool challenge with all of the new Sassy Cheryl images with hats!!! I chose Firefly Frenzy Maddie:


I had so much fun coloring and adding embellishments to this sweet image.  Maddie and her jar of fireflies just reminds me of the days that I used to catch them, put them in a jar but always left the lid off at night so they could escape and not die :) I mounted her on a green tag and added 3 cute buttons and a wise Owl to guard her on her night of firefly hunting. You can get Maddie with fireflies, Max with Fireflies or an image with both Maddie and Max, how cool is that.

I added a banner, which I kind of stole the idea for from some I have seen, I went to the site that sells them, but I couldn't justify 16.95 for a die plus shipping so I cut out 4 rectangles,  cut out the triangles at the bottom, punched out the hearts and glued them to some baker's twine, not quite the same but I like it.  I added a nice strip of pink cs I punched a nice MS border on both sides and added some TH washi tape down the middle and a pretty pink button at the top.

Be sure to drop by the Challenge Blog and see what the rest of the DT created for the Hats off challenge and leave them some love and grab a Sassy Image from the Store and play along. Thanks to everyone who played along in the Americana/Red White and Blue Challenge last week, we had a great turn out considering it was a Holiday week.  Wonderful cards.

Have a wonderful creative week and thanks for stopping by.

Your card is so pretty Cathy! The image of Maddie catching fireflies is darling. I like the way you made your own die cut banner! It looks great!

How clever! I love your banner! This is a darling card...always love this color combo. I think many of us can relate to catching fire flys (we called them lightening bugs in my neck of the woods!)

I just may have to steal your banner idea one day. I don't blame you for making your own. Yours is gorgeous. I have the same memories about the lightning bugs. I forgot about leaving the lid off of the jar at night. My Mom made us put the jar on the front porch and leave the lid off so the lightning bugs could fly back home.

Well well well, my sweet friend! You've done it again! I love, love, LOVE this! Seriously...tell me where I can buy some of those cool wooden embellies!! Gorgeous coloring...and I love that you have this fun image attached to a tag. I'll be stealing that idea! Love the buttons too! You rocked it, sassy sistah!! Hugs. Pat
