Sassy Studio Designs -A Very Merry "UN-BIRTHDAY" August Release Blog Hop!

Hello, and Happy Sunday!  Grab a cup of java, and sit back and relax, you are going to love Sassy Studio Design's August release.  Lindsay has designed some gorgeous background papers, that are a perfect match for all her "Alice In Sassy Land" digital images.  They are also great to use with other Sassy gals.  We also have some new Sassy images, which you will see threw out the blog hop.
Hmm have I got your curiosity going?  We have all got some amazing projects to show you. So the order of the blog hop is as follows.  It starts at SSD's challenge blog, and the next stop along the way, after me, is Lisa.  Plus, each DT member is going to pick 1 commenter from their blog, and announce it on Monday on the SSD challenge blog, and wait for will win 1 Sassy Image of your choice!!  All you will have to do is email Lindsay to let her know which one you want.  Good luck with that, it's not going to be easy to narrow it down to one!
So, I will stop my chattering and show you my cards with the new backgrounds.  The first up is the gorgeous "Sassy White Rabbit" image.

I designed this Clock Easel card myself.  I wanted it to match the background paper, which you can see on the inside of the card in the next picture.

This is the new "Clock" background paper, I love it, and so much fun to work with.  I will have the information about the cards at the end of the post.  My next card is the new release "Gladiator"  and I have used the "Crown" background papers.  I used the sketch from the Incy Wincy challenge this week, and I am entering this card in the sketch challenge.

I thought this was a perfect DP to go with the image.  For my next card I used the Little Honey's "Alice" image and the background paper is called "Hearts".

I have the new Cuttlebug embossing folders called  "Love Is In The Air", and it had the "Queen of Hearts" folder which went perfectly with the theme and DP.  I hope you can see it in the picture.  Last but not least, I used the Little Honey's "Cheshire Cat" with the new Keyhole background papers.

I think this is my favourite of the papers, although I love them all.  You will see more of them during your hop.  I used some silver foil card stock to create a saucer for the little minx to lie on.

Since this is a birthday party theme, we are all giving you one of our favourite cake recipes.  Mine is an Orange Cake with Orange Buttercream Frosting.  I'm not going to type it here, but if you would like the recipe, just leave a comment along with your email address, and I will get it out to you on Monday.  It's a delicious cake, and it makes 2 or 3 layers.  Here is a tantalizing picture of the cake mmmmm.

Doesn't it look yummy!! 

Don't forgot to join us on our Party blog tonight at 7 pm.  Well, that's it for me, thanks for joining us on our hop, hope to talk to you tonight online.
