"Grey Goes West" Blog Hop & Sketch Challenge #13

Hello my lovely fellow bloggers!
For today's Blog Hop you're going to need to bring along your sense of humor, 
and seriously setaside any straitlaced attitudes or prudish inhibitions!  
Graphical Designs is releasing two collections, 
both being a lil' bit spicy!

The 1st collection has a Western flair to it...  here's my first card:

For this card I followed Sketch #13 fairly strictly. The sexy cowgirl is
a pre-colored digi from Kenny K...  I only wish I could color that beautifully!
Here's the sketch:
The winner of  Sketch Challenge #13 will win
ALL of the New Digi Releases (Both Collections!!!)

The 2nd Graphicat Design Collection was inspired by the ever popular trilogy by 
EL James
You may have heard about it... it's a bit naughty, but ever so entertaining...
"Fifty Shades of Gray"
Our terribly talented and wickedly funny Cheri put together a series of stamps
in honor of the overwhelming popularity of this literary phenomenon.
Now I must warn you... some are very explicit, and of course that is NOT
for everyone.  So please proceed at your own risk... and by that I mean that
you risk being offeneded.  Some might think of it as vulgar, others might  
 just see the humor that was intended.  Either way I will quote Cheri's long standing disclaimer:

"My stamps are meant to bring a smile and even a chuckle. 
I love humour and I only mean to make you laugh, however, my humour is not for everyone. 
If I offend you, or you don't find the sentiments and images funny, 
I'm sorry, please just find your way out of my site and I wont be upset if you never return. 
PLEASE, do not contact me to complain, I will NOT respond."

 ...And that my friend, is how GraphiCats roll...
So here they are.... this is your last chance to bail... just click away... lol!

So, what do ya think?  Bad? or just Funny?
Personally, I think it's just funny... but that's just me.  I generally try
not to take anything too seriously... I try to stay on an even keel.
And I must admit, I have read all three books in the series, and enjoyed them all.
Once I got over the initial shock of the sexual content, and trust me... it is
indeed VERY shocking (and educational btw) I was able to enjoy the romance of it all.

So now, some details about the blog hop...

Be sure to leave a comment at every blog in the for a chance to win
a digi from each GraphiCat participating.
