Sassy Summer Bookmark

Good afternoon my crafties, It's me Cheri here today with a small creation...
My oldest daughter is a bookworm, and I've been wanting to make her some cute bookmarks. So here I've used my curly hair version of Sassy Summer.
Quick and simply cute project (my style lol, and less intimidating) 
Now I know as soon as all my daughters friends see this there will a bunch of lil girls that want a bookmark made for them. So, lol, they will pop up here on the inspiration blog too!! 
Well my lovelies, enjoy! Have a great day!

monday inspiration from DT Rachel

Good morning little Sues! how are you all today? I have just finished breakfast and before starting to put any more work together I have a card to show you!
this one is made using Sassy Summer- straight haired version (you may remember me playing with the curly haired version a while back)
I think she looks awesome in lime green and pink- what do you think?

The papers i have used for this card are from an anita's crab shack pack, I have used the stars, stripes, and kite tails for this card. 
I also have used some black sheer ribbon,
 kraft card,
 plain white card,
 samaflora blossoms
 little sparkly gems 
and a scalloped border. 
I used both a micron pen and a white gel pen to do the faux stitching- I think this has given a fantastic summery look that lends itself to the image beautifully!
what are your favourite embellishments for summer cards?

Custom images

Once in awhile I get the honor of helping you create a special image from a special memory of your own. This past week I received a pic of two sisters on their birthday from back in the 70's. A lovely pic with fab outfits back when life was much simpler. I am an 80's baby but I would have loved to have born in the 50's-60's!!! So I was excited to recreate this memory!!! So here a side by side comparison for you all....
I am available a couple times a month to do custom images. I charge $20 for a single or $30 for double (two people). If you are interested just send me an email with you pic. Karleighsuedigis@hotmail.com
I hope you all are having a wonderful Monday, it is a bit gloomy here. Terrible thunderstorms that are supposed to last all week :/ 
Happy crafting friends
Hugs xxxxx

So I make a cake stamp, and then some cupcakes. Then I got to thinking, and I have to tell you all I had a moment of "ah ha!" as genius struck me. So I sketched it up and it was a hundred times cuter than I had imagined! I know you all have seen diaper cakes at baby showers, it's the newest thing! Both of my sisters were prego this year so, yes I have looked at a million ideas for diaper cakes. As I suspected this is a totally ADORABLE idea for a stamp! I am over the moon excited about this one. I made it versatile for you: boy, girl, or neutral. I cannot wait to see what you all will create with this image! It is available in my Etsy shop now. On another note, I have added a "follow by email" gadget at the bottom of my blog. Of course you can always add the Karleigh Sue Blog to your reading list, that works too. It's taking me some time to get the whole blogging scene figured out. Well loves, I am exhausted. My midnight snack of homemade pretzels, has filled my house with a delicious smell. mmmmmm. Hubby spoiled me and made them! So off to eat my pretzel and finally to bed. Thank you all for a great day. Happy crafting Hugs. xxxxx Cheri
