I'm in the SPOTLIGHT & a GDT creation!


OMG.
OMG
 OMG!! 

Did u see that!?!> 
YUP...I'm in the spotlight at the Simply Sassy Blog this week. 
Please hop over there to get a load of my answers to their questions.
How did this happen, you may ask! Well there I was merrily working my night shift at work, when I was checking my e-mail and there was a msg from the talented Maria Therese, asking if I would like to spotlit at the Sassy Blog!!!! I nearly fainted, right after I jumped up and down for about 10 minutes. Lack of oxygen I think! LOL 
I immediately answered her, before the jumping part, saying YES!!!!!! EEEK!!!! 
So today is the day people! 
Today is also the day that I am a GDT for the Use it Tuesday Challenge blog. 
Isn't the excitement just killing you right about now?!!?! 
So at the UIT challenge- the theme is :

COOKING

 I've used a Sassy Girl, called Sundae Service & made a cupcake to match. I KNOW I KNOW, she is not holding a cupcake, but I was aching to make one of these and what better reason than for a spotlight creation AND GDT spot! 
Oh it was so much fun to make this, after the base & I got over our initial fight, I think we got along fairly well thereafter! I got the tut for the cupcake HERE on YouTube! 


Sundae Service was colored with copics for the skin & hair then watercolor pencils, blending stumps & baby oil for the rest! These are my Echo Park papers that I've had FOREVER....or at least it feels like forever as well as the chipboard  cherries! Foreva!!!! Now let's talk about all them ribbons on my cupcake......""Hello, my name is Corry & I am a ribbon holic""......so many ribbons waiting to get used, this is a terrific way to use them! And what about that cheesecloth.......well, I use it all the time, who doesn't know that! 

Below are a few finer details. 





{{This cupcake would not have been possible without the my newly purchased hot glue gun from Wal Mart!}} 

In the picture above, the cherry is actually a red puffball (I think that's the official word for it- lol) that I coated with crystal effects & glitter then added a wire stem. 

In the picture below, I added liquid applique & glitter to the sundae whipping cream. 






OH & you thought I just stopped at ONE creation for my SPOTLIGHT......

NNOooooooooooooooo sirrreeee!!! 

I made a lovely doorhanger for my niece. She just moved to the big city with the rest of the family & I thought this would be a nice room warming gift. She's 14 years old. 
This little Sassy is called Tiffany. Once I colored her I realized how much I love her! 


Doorhanger is from Susie Sugars Die Cut Dreams Store. 
Flowers are from WOC.
Pink ribbon leaves are from Really Reasonable ribbons.
Stamens with the leaves are from Bizzy Becs
All ribbons are misc from my stash. 
Chipboard heart from Dollarama. I sponged with pink CTMH ink & painted over with tattered rose distress ink then covered with glitter. 
A bit of liquid pearls around the image inspired by my girl LOU
