Please meet Sue (who actually goes by SASSY)  

Sassy is a '50 Something' lady from Midlands, United Kingdom and her style is fabulous.
Be sure to pop over to Sassy's blog, check out her beautiful work and leave her some love.  She will be offering a GIFT VOUCHER for Shelly's Images Store to one lucky commenter.

Here's a few words from Sassy:
  I started making cards 10 years ago ... started with a shoe box of bits and ended up with a room full.  I love doing commissions as it gives me a challenge and love  to see people happy with what I made  for them.  I have been described as chocolate boxey and ultra feminine but my style is different with my vintage.  I think I'm just a pure romantic at heart and have always loved art from an early age.

 Now let's see what Sassy and the Design Team have created to inspire you . . .

 with a sweet matching tag.

What a fabulous idea for decorating the lid of a gift box!
Very creative!
