What's Shakin' Bacon?

Howdee doodie everybody!  I'm back with another post for Simply Betty Stamps and the fantastical new line called Teen Scene Kitchen Fun.  I missed yesterday, but I do have Spaghetti Christian all colored he is now!
Isn't he cute?  I'll get him on a card soonly and come back to show him off again.

Today's image is called Pan Slingin' London.  Love her...she's always one of my faves.  I think it's her hair.  I always wanted curly hair like that!  I used some cutie patootie DP that my daughter picked out for cooking from Karen Foster.  I decided to give her some pink hair just for the fun of it.  I wasn't the only one who thought of this awesome DT sistah, Suzi, did hers up with teal!  Woot!

Thanks so much for coming by and checking out the latest!  Be sure to pop by the SBS blog too!  Mwah!

Christmastime with Anita Be Stampin!

Good morning everyone!  Are we all ready for a new and Christmasy release and Blog Hop at Anita Be Stampin?  I hope you all said yes, cause it's that time!  We have some super cute images and some super sassy images too...a little bit for everyone!  Woohoo!  Be sure to head on over to the ABS Shoppe to get your very own!  Make sure to visit all of the stops on the hop today, because one lucky person who comments on EVERY blog will win the entire digi release!

If you hopped by way of the ever fabulous Dee, you are in exactly the right spot!  You may continue!  If not, please start at the beginning at the Anita Be Stampin Challenge Blog...we wouldn't want you to miss out on any of the fun!

My first project is for those naughty peeps on your list this year...a little snowman poop!  I used the new image called snowman peeps...yes, peeps.  It has a girly holding this one's hand, but I got rid of her for my project.  I stamped some snow swirlies at the bottom of my treat holder and embossed with white EP.  I colored him up with Copics and cut him out...let's not forget the fluff ball on his stocking cap!  LOL!  The little saying says "I heard you've naughty, So's the scoop.  You get no coal this year, only SNOWMAN POOP!" 

Next up I have Santa Bear gracing the digital layout of our annual Christmas Sweaters photo...I happen to love this tradition even if the fellas don't!  :O)

Lastly for today's post is one of the sassy gals I told you about...Sandy Claus!  Isn't she something?  Wait till you see the other 2 sassy images!  WOOT!  I ran out of time, as I had planned to make something with all of them for the release!  I'll work on them and post a little later on.

Now it's time for you to hop on over to see Rene'...she'll surely have some beauties for you!  Thanks so much for coming by today!

If you should get lost along the way or there is a break in the links, here is the hop order!

Anything Goes at Pike's Playground

Good afternoon all!  It's that time again...another challenge is upon us at Pike's Playground with Doodle Dragon Studios!  Come on over and join us...the only rule for this challenge is to use a DDS image.  Easy, right?  :O)

I used the single ribbon image from the Awareness set.  I used the ribbon to make the design for my shirt as well as added them to the digital paper I used.  The shirt design uses all sorts of funny names that breasts get's pretty clever, even if I do say so myself!  Some of the names are milk bags, jugs, tomatoes, bubbies, gazungas, torpedoes...too funny!  I'm hoping you all touch your TATAS once a month too!  *grin*

Come on over and join us, won't you?  When you hop over to Dustin's blog be sure to check out all the awesome projects from my DT sistahs!

3) Leafs
4) Glitter
5) Stitching (Real or Faux)

I used one of my very favey ABS images called Ariana.  I also used itinerary numbers 2, 6, 7, 8 & 10.  Love the softness of this card!
