The sponsor of this week's challenge is the always fun Bugaboo Stamps and the Grand Prize winner will receive 7 digi stamps that vale $21!!
Everything That You Ever Wanted to Know About Bugaboo Stamps:  As if raising five children in the frozen land of the North was not enough of a challenge, Jodie Mackrell decided to dip her cold little Canadian toes into the world of papercrafting by opening an online store full of her illustrations. That was two years ago. Today Bugaboo Stamps is one of the leading companies in digital images, and we're still growing! From seriously snarky to sugary sweet to sublimely soulful all the way over to the other side of the super sexy spectrum, you're bound to find all that you need and more to create your paper projects. Jodie works very hard to provide New Releases and Freebies every week!  If your taste runs to rubber (and you know who you are), you can find stamps at Totally Stampalicious.  Finally, join the Bugaboo Stamps DT for weekly challenges at Catch the Bug.
 
As usual, the SSW Design Team Diva's have some fabulous creations for you, so if you need some inspiration be sure to check them all out and join us.  We love to see what you create with our sketches!

Here's a message from Krista herself:
My name is Krista Smith. I am the artist behind the Etsy shop, Saturated Canary Digis. I began working in the stamping world about a year ago when I was hired to create rubber designs for the sweet Scottish company, Sugar Nellie. They launched my artwork under the name 'Simply Sassy.' I moved into the digital world just this past month (it's been a super busy month, indeed!). And-- I love it!! There is a little more freedom here, as I can create anything that pops into my head:)! I am so humbled by the artistic talent of the girls coloring in my designs-- it is truly an inspiration! Likewise, I am so thankful for the friendships I've made in this wonderful and lovely crafty community! It's been a true delight! I'd love for you to stop by my challenge/inspiration blog,Saturated Canary Challenge and join in the fun...And, while you're there, click over to my personal blog (Saturated Canary) and introduce yourself! I am a bit eclectic and touch on everything from family (I've got me a great one!) to fashion (obsessed!)...Please say 'hi!'...I'd love to be friends!:)

Peace & Luv,
Sorry I couldn't get anything to you today, everything is moved into the new place but not where it should be nor could I even think about sitting down and making something creative....tune in on Wednesday for the Sweet Sketch Wednesday challenge!

Peace & Luv,

Sometimes just a little something can brighten up someone's day....
Happy Friday!!!
