Sweet Sketch Wednesday & Saturated Canary    

Hello everyone, This is Arlana hosting you this week at Sweet Sketch Wednesday.  I have been busy preparing for Fall and Winter boutiques for my $5.00 Paparazzi Jewelry. The last outside boutique was really cold.  But it a great time of year for selling Jewelry and Accessories for Christmas.  If you're interested in buying Jewelry and Accessories online from me, request to be apart of my new  Facebook Group  that I just created. I will have jewelry there for sale and will ship out to anyone in the United States. Or you can like my Facebook Page .  I will be running contests to earn free Jewelry so come on over to my group and page!

Here a few pictures of our new fall pieces.


Everything from Paparazzi only costs $5.00

This week at Sweet Sketch Wednesday we have a fun line up of cards made from Saturated Canary Images. Also a fun Sketch made by our very talented Sally Dube!

This is Krista from Saturated Canary! She's not only gorgeous and talented, but her images are so sweet and fun.  Here's a little introduction, and what she'd like you to know about her....

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-- Ilove 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!:)

The prize this week is 2 free digis from Krista’s shop
