Good Morning! I didn't get a chance to participate in the ATS Review Preview on Friday because that's when I was learning how to color ;) So, I will review Sadie today! She is the cutest little thing and is designed by Jen Ofiana. Remember there are three Sadie's right now and you can purchase them here. $7.50 for Sadie and a sentiment!!!

This one is obviously for Christmas. I used cardstock and dp from the DCWV Christmas stacks. The candy cane one is sparkly irl. I colored Sadie with Copics and my newly learned blending technique (color the lighter red completely over the area, then add the darker red just where you want the darker color to be and then go back over the darker color with the lighter red and it will blend then nicely together.....see no blender pen :) Sadie's candy cane also sparkles irl because I used spicas on it. Maybe you can see the sparkles better if you make the picture bigger, I don't know yet, haven't tried it :) I used liquid applique for all the white furry parts of Sadie's outfit and added some glitter to that before I heated it. Cut the image and matting with my nesties and added the ribbon. My hubby like this one alot, because I didn't add a ton of stuff to it (mainly dew drops) and he likes that Sadie takes center stage, she's sure cute enough to!

Hopefully I'll get ahead on my posts because I'm going to Texas next week to scrapbook with some friends and to see my sister and her family. I'm going to ATTEMPT to pre-schedule some posts. We'll see how that goes :)

Thanks so much for stopping by and have a fun filled day!
