Saturated Canary Challenge... all about the B's

Edit:  Shared top 5 honors at Eureka Stamps

Good morning stamping friends.  Once again I say... YAY, it's Thursday and YAY, it's time for another Saturated Canary Challenge.  But, I'm sad today too.  This is my very last GDT challenge for Saturated Canary.  Yep... pretty sad (wiping random tear from my cheek).  OK... I not crying, but I am very sad.  Now, let's get to it, shall we?  The challenge this time is B's... use at least two items that start with 'B'.

This image is Rollerskating Zombie.  Isn't she.. ummm... "cute"??  Actually, she is a pretty awesome little zombie, IMHO.  She sure was a ton of fun to work into a halloween card.  It's been so long since I've made a card for halloween that I enjoyed it immensely!!  Oh... my B's are... Boo, Bat, Buttons, Brad (glazed skull), Black and Bling.  Not bad, 'eh?  : )  I hope, hope, hope you'll all be able to join in on this challenge.

Breast Cancer Awareness with lots of pink!

Good morning dear friends.  Hope your week is going well so far.  I'm having one of those kinda good/kinda sucky weeks, so I just sigh and say 'oh well...'.  It always helps to be able to color up one of Krista Smith's little beauties!  I just loved this little gal and wanted to work her up and send to a friends who's on the winning side of her fight.  For all those ladies currently in the midst of their fight, God bless you.  I'm wishing you all the best.  Soooooo... here's my Boobie Love...

This adorable image was a freebie I'd downloaded some time earlier this year.  What a great freebie, eh?  She really was great fun to color up and went fast too.  She sure looks like a sassy little thing, doesn't she.

Ya think I got a tad carried away with the pink??  Yeah... I know {nodding head}.  But, if you can't go crazy with pink on a Breast Cancer Awareness card/image, where can you??  haha!

Saturated Canary Smash Book Memories

Edit:  Won "One Big Grand Prize"  at Unique Crafters Challenge

Hello my friends!  I'm so glad you stopped by today.  I'm off today so I'm feelin' fine and doin' a bit of crafting!!  Love, love, LOVE a holiday Monday!!!  Today I've worked up another fantabulous Saturated Canary image called Smashy Bob.  There's another image much like this one called Smashy Curls so you can see that the Bob part is hair-related.  Cute, eh?

I'd originally gotten this image to use with my Teddy Bo images.  But I thought it just went perfectly with a smash book image.  

I am going to repeat the plea (probably several times until the current SC challenge is over) I made in my last post regarding a wonderful charitable cause in which Krista is participating.  Here it is copied and pasted...

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?
