Our Fabulous Sponsor for this weeks
 Any Hero Thank You Challenge

Sassy Studio Designs is a fresh new company. We have been designing and selling for 4 years now, and we have been kindly received into the community of digi stampers and crafters. I started designing images shortly after I started stamping, reason being ... I didn't hardly like anything else out there I was a young adult woman at the time I was engaged, had no kids, I wanted fun sexy images that I would enjoy using and my friends and hubby would enjoy receiving. I designed images for 2 other digi stamp companies when my wonderful hubby kept trying to get me to go out on my own. So in June 2009 thanks to the few faithful followers I had, Sassy Studio Designs was born!  It has been a wonderful journey starting my own store. We have just grown so much these past months.I still try to keep Lindsay Dyer: keep with my original philosophy and reason for designing stamps, make them fun and keep them sassy...and yes sometimes even sexy!

This week's PRIZE is ...
Four (4) Sassy Digital Stamps of WINNER's Choice!

Please join us in Welcoming our Guest Designer this week!!


For many years I made cross stitched cards and small projects (one nighters) until late 2007 when I gingerly transferred to card making. It was some time before stamping took hold but once it did WOW there no stopping me, I just love it! I had silently followed the blogs avidly but only plucked up the courage to form my own blog in February 2011! It was so scary hitting ‘publish’for the first time, but now I wonder why I did not do this before. I feel I have come such a long way, am now on two Design Teams, and also am enjoying doing commissions for Papercrafts Essentials magazine, the first of which was Published in February 2013. It is a great hobby, and one that is definitely a pleasure to share. Do feel free to drop by and say hello on

 ... Any Hero Thank You cards ...

There is a wonderful organization here in the USA called Operation Write Home (OWH) that collects and ships hand made cards to our Troops all over the world. This gives the troops a way to stay connected with their families while they are serving our country. Along with those dozens of boxes of hand made cards OWH includes Any Hero Mail. These are Thank You cards with messages of gratitude and encouragement inside. OWH has created.  Guidelines for card makers to adhere to for the Safety of our Troops.  

I am proud to say that one of our Designers has personally shipped over 150 cards to OWH this year, and continues to design cards with our troops in mind. 

For more information about Operation Write Home and their work make sure you click on the links ... OWH, Guidelines, Any Hero Mail, Deadlines for Shipping, and The Mailroom for shipping out your cards.
