Simply Sassy...........Simply Delicious..........

Good morning all my lovelies how are you all? I hope the weather is as glorious where you are as it is here, its bright & beautiful & just brings a smile to you face with mr sunshine beaming his happiness down..... I love the sun it always makes me happy & puts that bounce in my step.........well maybe more a limp at the mo lol.
Anyway onto my post cus there are a few piccy's A couple of months ago the lovey
Maria Therese asked me if I would be in the Simply Sassy spotlight..............mmmm let me think.....a nano second later.....YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS......of course thats like asking if I like choccy or cake.....oh goodness I'm drooling now mmmm cake..............
Anyway my first post had to be cancelled as I was ill & lucky enough she got someone to step in & take my place phew..... Anyway we re-scheduled & here I am but Maria is not available this week so I am the Lovely Tracy's first spotlight.
I couldn't decide which sassy to use I have nearly every one of them........but there are a lot un-inked & still in there plastic :0( I'm just not one of these that has to use them everyday til they are all inked. Anyway I decided to use 'Delicious' yayyyy another one inked up lol. My brain kinda went into overdrive for this little sassy lassy.............

Well Miss Delicious decided she needed a card in the shape of an Apron & a recipe box to go with it.

This is the card.........

This is a resin embellishment I found in my stash there were 3 in the packet I got them when I started this crafting last year......will have to try find some more they are fab.....

I made a pocket on the apron to store a recipe or whatever you like really. The card on the front of the pocket I found as a freebie on google & just added my own writing in my art package.
Miss Delicious has been coloured with Copics.

This is of course the recipe box which will look fab on my bench when I've re-decorated the kitchen, which is why its in these colours as well. The flower I made myself & added a button to the middle.

Another resin bellie for the top of the box.

Got to finish making all my recipe cards there are just 2 in there for now lol.

The card is the same as whats on the card & I rubbed out some of the lines to type in Recipes & of course Miss Delicious wanted to be on the box as well. You can of course get Miss Delicious from Funky Kits who I have to say has fab service & fast delivery for those who have never shopped there.
Right I'm away now to catch up with some more blog hopping.
I've also started knitting ready for my grandchild, I'm starting with bootees first, well I'm not a knitter so start small lol.
Thanks for stopping by & huge thanks to you for all the comments you leave me they really cheer me up.
Thank you to Maria & Tracy for putting me in the spotlight.
Huge hugs to you all xoxoxoxox

Hi Vicky hun :) Hope you are well.

Well, what a week I had last week with storms and such, but its brilliant to be back.

Boy, you have been busy.

Love this awesome and delicious collection, and no wonder you were picked to be spotlighted! Wow!

Love the recipe box (what a great gift idea) and I love all the resin embellies too - they are perfect.

Awww, you have started knitting! :) awwwww...... I remember being taught that by my gran, and to crochet by my mum and aunt, and needlework/embroidery by my mum, and it stays with you all your life! I am never happy till I have learned to make something for myself, be it jewellery, pictures, interior decoration and even clothing, so good on ya! :)

Hope we get to see pics!
