A Very Special Card

I don't know if you already know  Simply Sassy are currently running a challenge to appear on their header so I thought 'what the heck ~ if I don't try there is NO chance' ~ so here is my card for their consideration :~

I just LOVE all of these Sassy's :). I coloured her with my PMs (details below) and used one of my new Fleximarkers (love em too now!!) to outline the image.

As well as putting this card forward for their challenge, I am also entering it into the following:~

The Sugar Bowl Sketch (fab one girls) and
Charisma Cardz Distressing.

Team Spirit from Simply Sassy range at Funky Kits;
PMs ~ Blush, Dusky Pink, Oatmeal, Pastel Pink, Sandstone, Mustard, Buttercup, Primrose, Cornflower, Denim Blue, China Blue, Rose Pink, Blossom, Dusky Rose and my new FM Glacier Blue (more about them later);
Sentiment is from Pink Petticoat;
DP is freebie from Bearly Mine mounted onto blue card;
Co-ordinations Whitewash sanded;
Ribbon and Glitter from stash.

I got my FMs this morning and ripped them open to play with and I have to say IMHO they are far superior to PMs.  The brush tip is lovely and soft & flexible, and blends much easier than PMs so it look awfully like I will want them all when they are released next month - so my wish list now includes the full set of Prisma pencils and the full set of Fleximarkers - oh dear - donations gratefully accepted!!

TFL and happy crafting to you all :)
