Here's to the Boss....

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 with a big love for zebras!! That's right... today we are sharing our "zeebie" (as she calls them) designs dedicated to a wonderful lady who we simply say, "Thanks".  We hope you enjoy the hop and remember, the Holiday Bash at CMC is under way and you don't want to miss out 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.

I created a card using a Saturated Canary image, "Color Me Wonderful" who reminds me of Suzanne at her Copic classes.  Hee

I started with some Pure Luxury Black Onxy card stock.  I added a layer of White and then some Basic Grey paper I found in my stash.  I colored my image with Copics and cut around her before mounting her on the card with Pop Dots.  My "Live" sentiment is from Gina K Designs set, "Inspirational Blocks".  

For me... Suzanne represents life at it's best.  She lives every day to it's fullest and I have never met anyone so full of the desire to enjoy it to the best of her ability!!  I feel very blessed to be Suzanne's DT Coordinator and to have the pleasure of working so closely with her!  Suzanne is more than just my boss, she has become a very near and dear friend and hardly a day goes by that we don't yell at each other... and I do mean YELL!!! LOL  Cause, it's how we roll!!! Hee  I hope she and her family have a wonderfully magical Christmas and an awesome New Year!!!  

Enjoy the hop... here's a list of participants to help you get started:

Tina, what a fabulous card and I see Suzanne written all over it! I had the pleasure of working with her on Susana's DT and gosh, what I learned from her.
