May the Odds be Ever in Your Favor!

Good morning, lovelies!  Happy Saturday to you!  Any big plans this weekend?  As you're reading this I am probably at my 12-hour crop at Archiver's.  Woo hoo!  Can you imagine all the creativity flowing?  =D

Well, if you have some time to be creative this weekend, you should check out the mini-challenge Sassy Studio Designs is having!  As you may or may not know, we are having a release later this month.  However, for 48 hours only you can download one of the images being released for FREE! All you have to do is visit Sassy Studio Designs' Paper Craft Planet and download the image before 9AM EDT on Monday. (Not a member of Paper Craft Planet or the SSD group?  You should's quick, easy and FREE! Plus, SSD has a freebie EVERY Friday.  You just can't beat that!)  Want to see what this fabulous image is?  Are you a fan of The Hunger Games (or even just glamorous people)?  Meet......Effie!

That's right, it's Effie Trinket!  Isn't she FAB?  I just adore her.  Remember, you only have 48 hours to grab her, so head HERE soon!

Want a chance to win two other images from the upcoming release before ANYONE else gets them?  Why don't you join our mini challenge at the Sassy Studio Designs blog!  The challenge is EFFIE.  (E)mbossing, (F)lowers, (F)ull of color, (I)nk, (E)mbellishments.  How fun, right?  As you can see in my card, I have used a Stampin' Up embossing folder behind Effie.  I've included my new WO flowers, as well as a couple from Offray.  Of course, I used lots of my favorite colors (pink, purple, blue, green). I've inked each piece of paper with Momento chalk ink, and I've added embellishments like the ribbon and gems.  How easy is that? I definitely think you can handle this challenge.  It's open until 9AM EDT on Wednesday, so you have a few extra days to complete it.  What are you waiting for?  Head over to the group, grab the image, and play along in the challenge for a chance to win TWO more images from the release!  =D

Thanks for stopping by, and we'll see you soon!
