Special Lady




Hello everyone and welcome to a special blog hop for a very special lady.... Suzanne Dean.


Today the Design Team from Suzanne's site, Color Me Creative, are hopping along to give our friend and "fearless leader" a HUGE HUG and Thanks!!!

If you've ever met Suzanne, you know 1) what a HUGE heart she has and 2) how fun, witty and TALENTED she is!!  Suzanne's site has tons of information and inspiration and WE get to help spread the word about her awesome classes by way of her bi-weekly challenges sponsored by some fabulous crafty companies!  This month Suzanne is having a month full of challenges where you can win some wonderful prizes and have some fun along the way, but we wanted to take time to thank Suzanne for all her hard work and dedication for not only us but for all the members on her site and those who are lucky enough to have attended her classes where she shares her talent and coloring tips with us all. 

Suzanne is not only a pleasure to work for, but a wonderful friend. I have had a chance to spend some time with Suzanne the last couple years. If you are one of her followers of her blog she has some interesting stories from her travels and all these crazy things do happen to her. Suzanne is a big love for zebras!! That's right... today some of the girls are sharing their "zeebie" (as she calls them) designs dedicated to a wonderful lady who we simply say, "Thanks", I was unable to come up with any “zeebie” so I did this cute image from Sylvia Zet called Winter Wonder.  We hope you enjoy the hop and remember, the Holiday Bash at CMC is under way and you don't want to miss our on all the fun excitement and awesome prizes so be sure to stop in and enjoy the holiday spirit with us all.  You can find all the information you need HERE.

Winter friends 2012

I made this special card for Suzanne this year and the name of the card is Magic Card. I took all kinds of pictures so you can see how it is made, it is not a hard  card to make, it just looks like it is. My base paper is white sparkle paper and all the other paper is from Die cuts with a view Winter Wonderland Pack. Sponged around the edges with brilliance ink color Mediterranean blue. On the edges used Martha Steward aspen snowflake border punch.
