It looks like you have forgotten to include an opening bracket in your sass file for your CSS rules. A properly formatted CSS rule looks like this:

.css-selector-here {
    css-property-name-here: property-value-here;

Sass is written almost exactly like CSS, it just allows for things like variables and nesting rules. You still need to include the brackets otherwise you get errors like the one you have.
