Saturday Shoutout

Hello, Stash-shoppers! 

Here we are: another Saturday... hopefully a day of crafting and chilling! 

Thank you for playing with us in our last challenge: Out with the old, In with the new!  We had lots of excellent entries... and I have to be honest: we all voted on different projects! Seriously!  So I take that as a sign that you guys are on a roll!  Yay, you! 

Because we narrow down to three, these are our top three, randomly selected fabulous cards:

Congratulations, and feel free to grab the badge from the sidebar!

And do yourselves a favor: go and check out ALL of the submissions for that challenge-- you'll find all kinds of Saturday inspiration!

Then, once you are inspired, come play along with our current challenge: Getting Sentimental!  It's open until Monday night at midnight, EST.

Good afternoon, crafters!

What a special Gah!  PINK!!! challenge we had honoring Leslie Hanna, a beloved SOS member who sadly and suddenly passed away a couple years ago.  She was *not* fond of pink but had an excellent sense of humor...

We had many pink-a-licious creations, but at last we settled on three faves, in order of entry:
