Sassy Suzy Birthday and let's stop the guilt trip

We all have busy lives, some of us work, some of you have children and pets to look after and some of you manage all 3. Then there's the housework, cooking and ironing to be done. Not to mention gardening, not in this weather I know, decorating and all the normal things of life. Somehow we manage to fit in cardmaking and blogging around all these things. It just isn't possible for some of us to spend as much time as we would like visiting each other's blogs. I've decided we should stop apologising for not visiting, being bad bloggers or whatever. We visit when we can and we should just enjoy it and end the guilt trip.

That's me off my soapbox and on to the card. This is Sassy Suzy from the Greeting Farm. I used her last week for a purple Christmas card and this week she is in pink. I added some glitter to her coat and gave her hair a streaked look for a change. I just love this new MSBP and you'll be seeing a lot more of it.

Oh Marianne I didn't mean to make you cry hun, I think we've used all the kleenex supply too.
Beautiful card, love the colours and the sweet image.
You stay up on your soap box, you are so right I always tell people off for apologising and then nearly did it myself just now lol

Wow calm down Marianne don't want you getting yourself in a state lol but I have to say I am with you 100% on this one. Some of us have far more time than others and why should those that don't be made to feel guilty!!
Anyhow onto your card which is beautiful, love that image not one that I have seen much of but very versatile as you showed, beautiful papers that black has a lovely effect to it and your border punch really sets it off.

Hi Marianne, Gorgeous card! Such a sweet image and I love the pretty border.

We had a lovely meal at Zak's. Haven't been there for ages and it made a nice change. Luckily by the time we came out we had missed the football traffic.

Hope you are having a nice weekend.
