COLOR ME #25

Well, it's officially summer here in Virginia.  Or at least the temperatures sure do reflect that. Good grief, it was 105° with the heat index today.  Come one. . . .I love hot weather more than cold weather any day, but let's have a little spring weather first!
Did you all have a good Memorial Day weekend?  We sure did!  Very relaxing.  Spent time with family and neighbors and had lots of really great food!  I think I'll have to do extra sit ups this week.  And maybe a little extra walking.  It was worth it though.  REALLY!
So, let's get to the COLOR ME winner from last week.  Thanks to the lovely ladies who entered with their amazing cards.  Betty, I wasn't able to comment on your card b/c Blogger was being ugly, but I did comment on 'my blog', just in case you were wondering.
So, who was the winner?

That's you!  Congratulations!  
Just drop me an email and I'll get your free image right out to you.

Guessing Game #12

Happy Friday!  And for those in the US, Happy Memorial Day weekend!  I'm ready for the weekend for sure. Been a LONG week here.  Don't you just love weekends and holidays!?!  Kids are out of school and hubby is off on Monday too, so it's going to be nice to hang out with BOTH of my boys.
So, did you guess correctly last week on the Guessing Game?  Did you second guess yourself or did you stick with your first instinct?
Thanks to everyone who played along last week.  Lots of you made correct guesses and I have to say, I get a kick out your comments.  You all are FUNNY!
The top selling image for the week of May 13th - May 19th was:
#5-Artificial Flower Girl
There were 14 correct guesses and the lucky number in the TRG drawing was #6.  Sarah, aka Stressed Stamper.  You're that winner!  Congratulations!  Just drop me an email, and I'll get your FREE image right out to you.
**The winner was chosen in order of the guess.**
~ ~ ~ ~ ~
For those of you new to the game, here are the simple rules.
1.  Leave a comment with your 'educated guess.'
2.  You may only enter ONCE.  All duplicate entries will be deleted.
3.  When guessing, please include both the number AND the name of the image in your comment.  That way there won't be any doubt or confusion as to which image you are choosing.
Example guess:  1.  Little Graduate-girl.
4.  You'll have until 5 PM EST on Thursday, June 1st. to comment with your guess to be considered for the drawing for the FREE image.

Now let's get to this weeks Top Five for May 20th - May 26th.  Some of them have been in the TOP FIVE before.  And three of them are 'GRADUATION' themed images.  This one may be a little tougher.  So, what do you think?
Come and play along!  It's really fun and challenging but certainly an easy way to win a FREE image from Sassy Cheryl's.  
Remember, you can only guess once. You'll have until 5 PM EST on June 1st. to post your guess.  Please include both the Number and Name in your guess.  It certainly does help when I'm counting the correct guesses.

Show Me #26

It didn't dawn on me until the other day that this weekend is Memorial Day weekend.  Hmmm.  I wonder how I missed that one.  A good time to relax.  And that is exactly what I plan on doing.  Cookout with the neighbors and spending time with hubby and the boy.  So, what do you have planned?  A day at the beach perhaps?
Now, let's get to the winner for the Show Me post for last week.  Thanks to everyone who played along last week.  I enjoyed seeing all of your spaces and your wonderful projects.
For this week, TRG  chose lucky #7.  Cathy, that's you! Congratulations.  Just drop me an email and I'll get that FREE image right out to you. 
This one is a little different this week.  This is something that I'm working on for licensing.  I haven't decided if I like it, but it's what she wants so I'm waiting for the final approval.  He will be a figurine.  Will be anxious to see how they turn out if it's given final approval.
So, what do you have planned for this week.  Or will you be laying low for the holidays?  Either way, we'd all still love to see what you're doing.   SO grab that camera and get snapping.  It doesn't have to be a Sassy Cheryl's image.  It can be whatever you are doing.  So, come on.  Join in the fun!  If you're as nosey as we are, you know you want to!
You'll have until 5 PM EST, June 1st to post your blog or photo using Mr. Linky to be entered for the FREE image drawing.  Come on, you know you want to!

Triple Heart Raggedies

Show Me #25

It's been a hectic week here in the Alger household.  Too much to go into, but I am still running behind.  I think I'll take the weekend to relax after Zach's tournament on Saturday and have a nap.  I hate being behind, but sometimes things just happen and you have to deal with them.  It's all good though, because I believe everything happens for a purpose.  ☺

So, thanks again to everyone who took the plunge this week and played along in the SHOW ME #25.  I had great fun being nosey.  Didn't you.  Oh, come on.  Just admit it!

Congratulations Melissa!  Just drop me an email and I'll get your free image right out to you.
Since my week has been kind of hectic, I haven't gotten very far with the image for the SHOW ME post this week, so it's just a snippet.  But, it is what it is and I did my best.  This is in the VERY early stages.
So, what do you have planned for this week.  We'd all love to see.  SO grab that camera and get snapping.  It doesn't have to be a Sassy Cheryl's image.  It can be whatever you are doing.  So, come on.  Join in the fun!  If you're as nosey as we are, you know you want to!

Show Me #24

So, how has your week been?  Well, Blogger has been ugly so, I'm hoping that this time this post will stay!
I'm being brief as I do not feel like retyping the entire post from before.  Sorry, it wasn't saved, it's Friday and Blogger should be more reliable!  I know I certainly will not be the only one in this boat.  UGH!
Thanks to everyone who played along last week in the SHOW ME fun.  The random winner for the FREE image drawing is: Jantelynne
Congrats girlie.  Just drop me a note and I'll get your FREE image right out to you.
So here is a little something that I'm working on.  Whatcha think?  I saw a little girl at the park the other day picking flowers and giving them to her mom.  It was the sweetest thing.  Just knew I had to do something with her.
So now, grab those cameras and snap a photo of what you're working on this week.  Remember, it doesn't have to be a SASSY CHERYL'S image and it doesn't even have to be craft related.  We just want to see.  So come on and join in the fun!
You'll have until 5 PM EST, May 18th to post your blog or photo using Mr. Linky.
Until next week.  Have a great day!

Sassy Cheryl's introduces. . . .

. . .my first collection of rubber stamps!
I've been keeping this under wraps for a while now and it's time to let out the secret!
I have teamed up with Kraftin' Kimmie to bring you an exclusive line of rubber stamps.  This is a new venture for me and I have to tell you that I'm REALLY excited.  I've received many an email asking if I ever had any plans to do my designs in rubber stamp form.  Well, wait no more.  They're here!
Remember, these are not available as digi stamps, so you'll need to pop on over to Kimmie's store to purchase the new Sassy Cheryl's line.
Kimmie has such an amazing design team too, so be sure to click over and take a look at their WONDERFUL creations.
There will 3-5 new rubber stamps each month and Kimmie also has a WONDERFUL hop each month.  The newest one will begin on Sunday, so I certainly hope that you'll play along.

Here is just a sample of some of the wonderful cards that Kimmie and her DT have created with the three new releases that are available beginning this month.  Aren't the cards just GORGEOUS!
And there's a change to win the ENTIRE set, just by commenting on EACH of Kimmies' Design Teams card previews.  How simple and amazing is that!?!?!?!


So, it's a secret no more.  I've been sitting on my hands. . .not wanting to give away the surprise.  So, what do you think?  Good surprise?

COLOR ME #22

So, for those of you celebrating, did you have a nice Mother's Day?  I certainly did.  Hubby had to work, so Zach took me out to eat.  I had the Garden Salad Bar and three side vegetables.  Zach had the steak and Lobster Tail.  Anything wrong with this picture?  hee hee.  Actually, it was really funny, because hubby gave him the money to take me out so he figured that he'd get what he wanted.  If Zach would've been buying, I GUARANTEE you he wouldn't have gotten it.  I thought it was FUNNY!  Teach hubby a lesson.  
Later on, I took a 15 minute nap.  Would've been longer, but Zach interrupted me.  Had a nice chat with my mom too!  Love that woman to death!  Hope you all had a great day too!
So, that's enough about my day, let's get to this weeks COLOME challenge.

First, let's get to the winners.  First off, thanks to everyone who entered.  All of the cards were amazing.  Zach has gotten used to choosing the winners, but he still has a hard time.
The winner for the "Empty Honey Pot" image is: Cindy Tschider
The winner for the "Ladybug in Love" image is: Donna Vallee
Congratulations ladies.  Just drop me an email and I'll get you free images right out to you.
Now. . .
Here are the two images that you have to choose from for this weeks COLOME challenge.  I chose to do one 'person' image and then just a simple spring image.  Mix it up a little.  So which one will you choose to color and enter this week?  Or will you do both?  Remember, you don't have to enter the challenge to get the images at the discounted price.
Artificial Flower Girl

A Spring Hill with Ladybugs

So, get COLORING.  Remember, you only have to color one of the images, but if you choose to enter a card for each image. . . .that's even better!  You'll have until 5 PM EST, Monday, May 16th. to upload your card or blog using Mr. Linky to qualify for the FREE image.  There will be a winner for EACH image.  The winning cards will be the models for the colored images that I offer in the store.
And for those of you playing along for the first time, my 16 year old son, Zach is the 'winner picker'.  But trust me, he has good taste.  Just like his momma.  <smile>

Just remember, you may also enter the card in the  Sassy Cheryl's Challenge blog,  and follow the "Ribbons & Bows" theme, you may enter your cards there as well.  You can win a $5 gift certificate in that challenge.
Can't wait to see what you do.  I think these images are going to be SUPER fun to color!  Or at least I hope so!

Happy COLORING!
Oh. . .and don't forget about the Guessing Game.  Another chance to win a FREE image.
