It's Saturated Canary Challenge time

Edit:  Shared top 3 honors at Jackson's Digital Expressions

Hello all.  It's time for another Saturated Canary Challenge.  That's always a fun day in my books.  For this challenge our theme is Going Dotty.  Let's see them dots folks.  For my GDT card, I've used Washi Tape Kinda Girl at the Saturated Canary On-line Shop.  Like so many of us, she is soooooo in love with her washi tape!!  Too cute, right??




She was so fun to work up and went fast too!  For me, that's saying a LOT as I'm not exactly a speed demon when it comes to coloring.  LOL!  Oh, and BTW... she comes with her own sentiments too... three of 'em!!  Can't beat that with a stick now, can ya?  I do hope you'll be able to join us for this challenge.  The worst that could happen is you might have some fun!!!  {smile}

And... PLEASE, visit the Saturated Canary Challenge blog as Krista is generously contributing $1 for every entry into this challenge (up to 500) for a fabulous cause.  So check it out, have some fun participating and get all your friends and family to join in too, 'K?

Home... where the story begins...

Edit:  Shared top 3 honors at Do You Stack Up
Edit:  Shared top 3 honors at Inky Impressions Challenges

Good morning friends!  Welcome to my little blog today.  I just have a quick post to share another of Krista's wonderful images from Saturated Canary.  This little lady is called no bites.  I know... you're saying 'odd name for such a sweetie!', but she has an alter ego named my bite is worse than his bark and she's a bit of a vampire.  Ahhhh... now it makes sense, right??  Anyhoo... on to Miss "No Bites".




I think I say this with every Saturated Canary image I share, but isn't she simply sa-wheet!?!  Krista can just work magic with that drawing pencil of hers.  And lucky for all of us that she can.  IMHO.  I do feel bad for her little dog friend.  I have colored him up pretty poorly.  I tried to make him out like a pug but, it's a bit lacking, if you ask me.  Also, I don't think I've seen a pug with cropped ears... only floppy ones.  But they are so danged cute that I thought I'd give it a shot.  Oh well... try and try again.

Challenges:
Pals Paper Arts - da SKETCH -- I had to skew my image a bit as she was just too tall.
Inky Impressions - pearls and/or bling
Simon Says Stamp - animal antics
Dutch Dare Card Challenge - furry friends
DYSU - buttons
Catch the Bug - Bugaboo Bingo -- bold and bright... pearl... sentiment
Dilly Beans Designers Challenge - bright colors
Totally Gorjuss - string's the thing
Stamptacular Sunday - let's hear it for the girls
Corrosive Challenge - cute as a button
Simon Says Stamp and Show - anything goes
Take Time for You - all allowed/anything goes

That's all today folks.  Have a great week and we'll see you back here soon, I hope.

The Queen... more Saturated Canary

Morning gals and guys!!  I am soooo relaxed right now.  It's Saturday morning and I'm coloring an image and decided to post the latest image I've colored up which is The Queen from Saturated Canary.





I think she's awesome!!  Don't you??  Krista's SC images are just so fun to color up... I just can't get enough.  And I have quite a few more images that I'll be throwing out there as time allows.  This was my first card where I used some washi tape.  Yeah... I'm always about a step or two behind.  haha!   I tried to make this a clean and simple (CAS) card, but this is the best I could do.  I probably isn't actually CAS, but for me... it is.

Challenges:
Freshly Made Sketches  - SKETCH (can't enter, too many challenges, but wanted to credit them)

Pack Lightly and Live out Loud - SC Challenge

Edit:  Shared top 5 honors at Love to Create
Edit:  Shared top 3 honors at Inky Impressions

Good morning friends.  Another Thursday brings another Saturated Canary Challenge.  That's always a good thing, right?  Let's get right to it, 'K?


This sweet gal is going places.  I sure wish I was in her shoes.  I love to travel but haven't had a chance to do much of it.  But I've promised myself a few trips before this show is over.  : )  This image is called Pack Light.  Ca-yute!  By the way... our challenge for this two weeks was my choice so I picked a photo inspiration as I just love those.  Hope you do too!


To me, the hardest thing about picking a photo inspirate pic is which photo to choose!  There are soooo many beautiful photos out there.  But, when I saw this on with the fab bicycle, flowers and outdoors scene, I was hooked.





Challenges:
Love to Create - sparkle
Inky Impressions - pearls and/or bling
Paper Pretties - square card
Crafting for all Seasons - bright colors

That's about all I got today folks.  Hope you enjoyed your visit here and will come back again soon.  You are ALL the BEST!!!

Saturated Canary... coloring for fun

Hello my friends.  Surprised?  I know, I usually don't have another card to post this soon.  But I've ended up with the weekend all to myself and decided I was going to do whatever I wanted to.  So, of course, part of my day was spent creating a card.


I'm sure you're all saying "ho hum... another black and white card... she just did that!".  And you are correct.  But I just love them and decided to do another one.  Heehee!!  This time I chose Traveling Colors from Saturated Canary.  I do believe I have 'Saturated Canary fever'!!!  It's been sooo much fun coloring up her fabulous images that I just can't stop!!  Gotta say 'thank you Krista' for creating such wonderful images!!



Oh... and I must beseach you... no comments on the shoes, 'K?  {smile}  They are like the worst EVAH (coloring-wise)!!  And as usual, these pinks are just so much dingier than IRL.  I have that problem ALL the time.  ARGH!  One of these days I've just got to get some good lighting.

Just us Girls  - the SKETCH

The Great Outdoors - Saturated Canary Challenge

Edit:  Shared top 3 honors at Going Grey with Scrap-Creations
Edit:  Shared top 5 honors at The Crafty Pad

Happy Thursday folks!  Does anyone love Thursdays like I do??  I know there's just one last day between me and my weekend.  And I soooo love my weekends!!  But that's not why we're here today, is it?  We're here because it's another superdillyicious challenge at Saturated Canary.  Now that's a good day!!!


The only bad thing is I'm so danged late with my post.  It's been quite a couple of days and I didn't plan very well.  I won't make that mistake again... at least I hope not!  : )  The theme for this challenge is 'The Great Outdoors'.  Krista has some cute, cute, ca-yute images that will fit this challenge perfectly.  I decided to go with this beauty called Chasing Butterflies which is one of the latest images in the Saturated Canary shop.  Isn't she just all kinds of sweetness??  You never cease to amaze me Krista.


I went with my pinks again... obviously!  I just bought a pad of the new My Mind's Eye Miss Caroline Dolled Up.  Such pretty designs and colors.  I added three of those silky ribbon flowers, some swirly pearls, black gems (in the butterflies' centers) and a sentiment and voila... a card for a friend, family member, helpful neighbor or whatever other situation you need.

Hugs, Denise
