Congratulations on all that you have accomplished! Love your blog too...
Something sassy about myself, I always keep my toe nails painted lime green.

Anne B said...

Congrats Denise - what a fantastic week for you. You deserve it! Something sassy about me? My favoourite purse is a red one :)

paperella said...

Big congrats Denise! Seeing a card in print is such an amazing feeling! Something sassy about me? Ok... few people know I have very curly hair because my GHD straighteners are my best friend ;)
Thanks for the chance to win!

Shannon Murdock said...

Congrats, girl!! I always love the projects you share over at PTI! My sassy fact is that I own almost every color of Old Navy flip flops because I just LOVE them!!!

Elena said...

you're doing so great! congrats on all the recent recognition :) I think the only sass I have lately is what comes out of my mouth... to my husband. sigh. I need summer weather to show off more sass!

Keva said...

Wow. You DO have a lot to celebrate. Congratulations on all of it. That's so very cool. You are ├╝ber talented, so none of it comes as any surprise.

Ok, what is "sassy" about me? Hmm...well, I am VERY vocal when it comes to Human Rights. I don't let people get taken advantage of and I always try to stick up for the "little guy" or "victim" or "defenseless" in any given situation. Someone has to do it..that someone is me! In most other aspects, I'm pretty quiet and even tempered, but not that. That IS my sassy spot. ;)

Sue Ann said...

Not sure how I was not a follower since you are in my g-reader ....... how the heck did that happen. Crazy give away girl and I am so happy for you for all the goodness and happy things that are coming your way. Okay something sassy about me ........ I only run in skirts ....... really short running skirts from Lululemon ... they are my weakness and they make me feel sassy.... because I am.

Melissa said...

I too, thought I was a follower as I have you in google reader, but now I am for sure!

Congrats on all your recent accomplishments, I really love your design style! Can't wait to hear #4!

I'm sassy in that I make people accountable for their responsibilities (being President of our co-op President, this has come up recently!)

Happy Mother's Day, Denise!

Sara Mac said...

Denise, I just saw both of your gorgeous cards last night when flipping through the CARDS mag. I was so happy to *know* you through the PTI forum. Congratulations! As far as sassy...I tell it like it is. To some that seems sassy.

Christina said...

Congrats on all of your latest accomplishments! I can't wait to hear #4! So glad to have found your inspiring creations.

What's sassy about me? Not much, as I'm normally pretty introverted. But I definitely get sassy with my hubby! He always says it's a good thing I keep his ego in check! LOL!

Lesa said...

Congratulations on all your accomplishments!!! I can't wait to hear what #4 is. And this is a great blog give away, lots of cool goodies. I guess I am really not a sassy person, just a laid back quiet life for me.

AllMyHobbies said...

Congrats on all your fabulous accomplishments!!

What's sassy about me - I tell it like it is. And I've passed on the sass to my daughter, who sasses me back, complete with hand on hips and everything!

Marie / Legojenta said...

Congratulations on all of your accomplishments, Denise! If I can find any of the two CARDS magazines you've been published in, I have to flip through and look for your cards.
And what a fabulous giveaway you're offering =)
Okay, I had to look up the definition of sassy (since english is not my native language), and found out th meaning of that word. But I can't for the life of me figure out in what way I'm sassy! I must be, in some way, but it's just not coming to me at the moment... This will totally bug me, for sure!
Anyways, thanks for offering such a great giveaway =)
Have a great day!

Rose Olson said...

Does following the Sassy Stamper make me a little bit sassy? LOL I think I have hit an age where I talk boldly, give my opinions and speak the truth; not meanly, but with an honesty that I don't think you can have when you are younger and self conscious of what other will think about you. That is what being sassy means to me.

bbourassa said...

It must be so thrilling to have your work published. Congratulations! I'm a new follower of your blog and love it. I'm not really the sassy kind... but then again I can be with my hubby ;-)

Lee Anne said...

Congratulations Denise! So excited for you! I've always loved seeing your beautiful work and hearing your stories on the forum!

I'm the youngest of 3 girls, so that pretty much makes me the queen of sass. I don't like being bossed around and sass those who try!

What a great give-away you are having!

Kristin said...

Congrats on all these wonderful things for you Denise! I'm so happy for you :-). Love your style!!

FUN giveaway!!!

I'm a follower :)

Sassy? Um, my entire personality, HA! Seriously, I learned to simply love who I am and love those in my life. I tell it like it is and can be a bit to take at times, but if you are a friend, I will stand up and fight for you and come to your side whenever needed.

Steph Zerbe said...

Oh, I can't wait to hear the news. Is it Papertrey related? How exciting. What a comeback you have made! Congrats! You inspire me.
Sassy bit about me? Hmmm, I only get sassy in a competition. Which is every night when my hubs and I listen to the 80's station during dinner. We try to out guess one another as to who the artist is. It's too fun. You should try it.

Danielle Therese Greenwood said...

Rock'n'roll Denise!!! You're cards are on fire! (okay not literally because that would be scary, but you know what I mean!)

Danielle Therese Greenwood said...

Oh yes, I forgot the sassy part- sorry...
I have a sassy attitude...I like to speak my mind (sometimes a little too much!)

*hugs*

cards by cara said...

Congratulations on some super fabulous accomplishments!!

Ok, something sassy about me - if I see friends or family, or really anyone treated poorly, my sass comes out and I defend full force!! :)

Lucinda said...

Wow!! Congrats on gettin' published! That is so awesome! And thanks for the chance to win blog candy!

Hmmm...something sassy about me...I may seem shy and quiet, but I'm not a pushover. I stick to my guns when it counts!

Holly Saveur said...

Congrats!When will we know number four??Great give away!
Also looked(just as Marie) what sassy means(I am a Dutch blond)
but I can't think off myself as being sassy..have to think about that one..is that sassy?

I'm Renee said...

Congrats on all the recent goodness! :)
And what a celebration!
Can't wait to hear what #4 is...!
What is Sassy about me?
My mouth.
If I've heard the phrase "Don't you sass me young lady" once...
I've heard it a million times :)
BTW...I'm a follower.

Elena Hank said...

I love your cards...everytime I log on I'm not disapointed! Something Sassy about me is that I speak my mind.

Susan Coan said...

Just started following you lately after seeing some posts on PTI forum. I love your style it has inspired me!!

I usually only get sassy when someone messes with my kids, my money or my vacation time!!

Jen said...

Congratulations Lovely One! You continually amaze me with your creative genius! So inspiring. My sass is indelibly inked in my many tattoos. I have a red rose a child...and that's a lotta roses!

Kathy Mc said...

Denise, love your blog. Thought I'd be a Follower because I subscribed through Google Reader but I guess it's different. My guess is #4 means you're going to be a designer for an awesome craft company. They would be so fortunate to have you. Congrats on all your recent achievements and thanks for the chance to win your awesome blog candy. Sassy? Guess when I see people being rude, my dirty looks make me sassy. Don't dare speak up any more due to repercussions!

Deb said...

What FUN it will be for the recipient of all those LOVELY goodies!!

My "sass" is unspoken, but expressed by my actions! I enjoy my card making hobby and regularly REWARD myself (17 years as a family childcare provider) with special tools and supplies!!

Like the saying goes, "I'm WORTH it!"

LILIANA said...

Congrats! I love your blog - your projects are always so beautiful & chic. = )

Something sassy about me? My personality - you never have to guess what I'm think because I'm just gonna tell you.

Thanks for the awesome blog candy.

Lou Spiden said...

WOW you're so nice :) Congrats on all the happy things happening!
oxox

Trina said...

Congrats on the publication - so nice to see you being recognized!
My sense of humor would be my sassiness. I tend to be sarcastic and not every one understands that until they get to know me.
Keep on creating and sharing.

Hanne said...

Congratz on all your achievements! I was already following you via Google Reader, and now I am an official follower!

Although I don't really understand what sassy means (dictionary gives a weird explanation), I think that the fact that most people think that I am a nice and sweet girl, until they really get to know me. I have a pretty black and sarcastic sense of humour, I create in a red room, I live together with a VERY sharp-mouthed, witty guy and that has really rubbed off!

Deena Hopkins said...

Congrats Denise! I'm a follower through Google Reader, have been for quite a while!
Something sassy about me...I like to wear fairly tame clothing (like black pants and a solid top) but spice it up with a really colorful piece of jewelry!

Annette P. said...

Congrats on being published! Something sassy about me....my sense of humor! And, although I don't always like to admit it, I can stir up trouble (in a fun way, of course!!)

Julie M said...

Congratulations! So much to celebrate. Thank you for sharing your excitement with us. My sassy thing would simply be how I talk to my mom while we are spring cleaning her house. She can't get away with keeping useless things unless she can give me a reason to keep them. Makes you think through what you have in the house, doesn't it?

dkirby said...

Wow! Congrats on being in Cards magazine!!! That is awesome! I just signed up to get your email updates, your blog is great!

Ali said...

Wowzers Girlie! You're totally rocking it. You're on a roll!!!

Sassy, me?? Mmmmm have you been talking to my DH?? LOL. I tell it like it is. There is no grey area. Just black and white. Truth and lies.

Just ask my daughters headmistress, I really told her what for on the phone last week whilst arranging a meeting with her this week! My daughter is being bullied at school for the last 15 months and I just hit the headmistress with a threat of our lawyer!

Sassy??? Who me???? Darn tootin' RIGHT!!! :-) ;-)

Jen Carter said...

What wonderful accomplishments! I can't wait to hear your other secret!

My sass would be that I am pretty sarcastic...gets me in trouble sometimes! :)

Francie said...

Denise, congratulations on your accomplishments. They're well-deserved. Thanks for offering a giveaway filled with excellent "loot"!

Angie K. said...

Congrats on your much deserved honors! I love your website and look forward to viewing your cards! Something sassy about me.... I speak my mind!

Leigh said...

What a fabulous prize! Thanks for the chance to win!
Something sassy about myself... I am testing for my black belt in tae kwon do on Saturday. :)

LittleSurferGirl said...

Congratulations, Denise! You have had some well deserved recognition! I'm already a follower of your blog...you know those mom issues can bring girls together! ;-)

Hmmm, something sassy about me? I have a good life and I know it.

Thanks so much for the opportunity to win! Your friend, Amy

Jeannie said...

Congratulations on your publication - how wonderful and exciting for you!
What's sassy about me? Some of the comments that come outta my mouth! Yikes!

Gina said...

Congratulations on your publication! Exciting!! :) Something sassy about me...I've worn a toe ring for almost 11 years. (I even wore it when each of my kids were delivered)

anet said...

Congratulations on being published! I am pretty non sassy except maybe with my husband. Thanks for a chance to win!

Emily said...

Congrats on the pubs and shout outs... I bet you made a design team somewhere. You'd totally deserve it! What is sassy about me? When we go out to dinner for birthdays, I will say "It's so-and-so's birthday. We'd like the free birthday dessert, please, but if you sing-- NO TIP!" :)

Sheri said...

Yeah for you! Great job! I have a Bichon Frise named Sassy because she always tells me off if I've been gone too long, or working too much on the computer or scrappin'. They say our pets become like us, nah! I'm just a sweet little thing.

Baseret said...

Congrats Denise, on all of your awesome accomplishments! Can't wait to here #4.
Something sassy... my big zebra and black patent leather DSLR camera case with the hot pink lining.It is too cute!!

Amy said...

Congrats on all your accomplishments! That is awesome! I can't believe I wasn't a follower until now....I've had you in my GR for some time! I guess I've been a blog stalker! :)

Hmmm, something sassy. I would say my mouth sometimes gets me in trouble. Hmmm, I guess that's where my daughter gets it!!

~Tammy~ said...

Big huge congrats to you! Well, before the little one I would like to think I had a little sass in my step and I was never seen without lipstick EVER. Now that is not far from the truth now, I will actually get out of the car without it now. LOL. I subscribe to your blog! :-) Keep on inspiring!

Jessica Wekenman said...

Wow, Denise! Congrats on all your recent accomplishments! I saw your card on the cosmo blog, I loved the card and was so excited for you! Hmmmm...something sassy about myself???? I have a few small sassy tattoos. Besides that, I'm all talk and no sass! ;) Thanks for the chance at all your lovely goodies!
