What a Weekend!

This was an exciting weekend at Sassy. we started off the weekend with a Stampers' Crop on Friday Night where the ladies were faced with a challenge. the challenge was to be creative on the spot. That's right they were given a challenge to created a card using only the items in their bag and there were able to add something from their stash but they had to use the items in their bag. We have a lot of creative ladies and you should stop by the Memorial Store to see what the ladies created.
On Saturday at the Medical Center store we had our very own "Tim Holtz" gal, Amy Smith, who came up with an very unique 12 x 12 layout, card and tag. The ladies seem to have a great time working on the layouts, and they had a good time learning new techniques. My favorite was the technique called Dabber Resist. You use the Adirondack Acrylic Paint Dabber, Snow Cap, I can't tell you will have to come in and pick Amy Smith's brain to see how to do the technique.

I was also there on Sunday when the ladies were taking the Advanced Card Class. Those cards were beautiful and the techniques used to make the cards were just wonderful. Spellbinders, cuddle bug, and many more techniques were used. Amy is a great asset to the store and we can't wait to see what the cards for October will look like.

Don't forget to check the Sassy Scrapper web page to see the upcoming classes.

Next month will have just as many new techniques and ideas.

Special Tribute

As most of you who have been with us for some time know, we lost two very special people in our Sassy Family this year. In February, Brenda lost her beautiful daughter-in-law to cancer and in June Lee’s daddy lost his battle as well. We have all felt the loss of these family members as we continue to love and console our fellow workers who are also our dearest friends.

It is with those heartfelt emotions that Sassy has decided to offer a Tribute gift to honor both Sandy and Mr. Maynard.

On September 11, Lee and her family will be participating in “Sherry’s Run” in Lebanon** in honor of her father. We are inviting you as part of our Sassy Family to make a donation to “TEAM MAYNARD” to express your joy, gratitude or sympathy in someone’s honor. We will have the donation forms at both stores, Memorial and Medical where you are welcome to pick them up.

BUT THAT”S NOT ALL!!! If you come to either store, complete your donation form and leave your check with us . . . SASSY WILL MATCH ALL FUNDS THAT ARE DONATED!!!

As most of you know, we did not travel to Chicago this year for CHA as I felt the economy was just not supportive to that kind of expense, particularly since we were just opening our new location. But now, I feel that God had something else in mind with our CHA monies. I count it a privilege to make this challenge to each of you as we, together, honor these two very special ladies!! I thank you in advance for you support . . . your donation will definitely make a difference in the lives of area cancer patients!!

**** In addition to the fundraising, Lee is designing a special layout honoring those special people in our lives. Whether it be family/friends who we are still able to love and care for or special persons who left us much too soon, this layout is both beautiful and touching and a must for everyone’s album!! It will be made available as a “limited edition” kit at the special price of $14.99. Click here if you would like to order the kit.

I am so excited about this girls and I pray that each of you follow the leading of your hearts as we strive always to make a difference in the time that we are given here on this earth. God’s richest blessings to each of you!! My love and prayers always, Mary @Sassy
