Weekly Challenge: SUGAR AND SPICE

Congratulations to the prize winner and the top 2 of last week's 
"Tic-Tac-Toe" challenge.

We could really use some more participants.
 It's crazy that we have more DT members than players. 
 What's up with that?
Surely you twisted gals and guys have friends online or in real life that like the same stuff you do?  Well, get them to play along! 
Introduce a niece or nephew or a son or daughter into crafting.
Let them explore their non-perky side.

Seriously, it's therapeutic.  Just ask my shrink.  Heck, the projects don't even have to be dark. Funny works just as well. 
 Just try, for my sanity, to avoid the overly sticky-sweet cute stuff as it makes my blood sugar soar and I'm really trying to avoid Insulin injections.

Enough of my babble.

The challenge theme this week at Smudgy Antics is

Keep my diabetes in mind and keep things more on the spicy side.  My doctor will thank you as well as my insurance company (and my pocketbook).

Be sure to read and follow the challenge rules posted on the left side bar to qualify for the random prize drawing and the coveted "Top Three" badge.

For inspiration, check out the projects from the Smeared Ink DT:
