Freebies at Simply Betty and Smeared Ink!

I have a couple of projects to show you today, and I also want to tell you about two REALLY EASY ways to get FREE DIGISfrom two great companies!

This first piece uses Goth Fairy Honey and It's About Time digis from Smeared Ink. And all you have to do to get a free image is enter any of the monthly challenges over at the Smeared and Smudged Ning Group. I haven't really left you much time to enter this month's challenges, but there will be a different freebie image available next month too. You don't have to be a winner, you just have to enter! How cool is that? The backing paper is from the new Poison Punch set at Crafty Chaos Designs and everything else was either created by me or hiding in my stash.
These are the challenges I'd like to enter:
Smudgy Antics - Zetti I'm not entirely sure that this is "obviously" Zetti-esque, but I really had fun creating and combining everything.
Crafty Boots Challenges - things with wings
Totally Stampalicious - it's got wings
Whoopsie Daisy - make your own embellishments. I made the heart kiss thing, the flower, and the shopping list.
Paper and Such Online - use at least three from the list. My chosen items are deigner paper, ribbon and 1 flower
Clear It Out Tuesday - alter something. I'm not really sure that this will count, but I altered the Goth Fairy stamp by giving her a dalmation head and then added a crown on top too.
Flutterby Wednesdays - use an angel, fairy or butterfly
Cute Card Thursday - animal crackers (does a dog-headed fairy count?)
Speedy the Cat's Friends' Challenges - things with wings
Digi Stamps 4 Joy - anything goes
Simon Says Stamp - anything goes
Critter Sketch Challenge - anything goes
Stamps & Fun = Creativity - anything goes
Crafty Catz - things with wings
Crafts 4 Eternity - anything goes
Fussy and Fancy - use a new technique (merging the dog head on to the fairy body was a bit tricky, but I'm pleased with the way it ended up)
Simply Create - use something older than 6 months. The digi clock, the pair of specs and the glittery skull brad are all over 6months old)

My second creation for today uses two Simply Betty images, both of which I got for free for simply JOINING Simply Betty's PCP group! And once we reach 500 members over there, there will be a super-cute-and-sassy witch available free to all members! So come on, join up, and be the first to see previews, join in the fun chat and pick up the limited-time freebies that Betty releases over there! This creation uses paper from the Poison Candy set at Crafty Chaos Designs.
These are the challenges I had in mind while creating this one:
Tuesday Morning Sketches - sketch #113
The Scrapbooking Queen - Halloween
Paper Creations Ink - buttons or bows
My Partner in Crafting Crime - sweets and treats
KB Cute Monday - Halloween
Ooh La La Creations - punches or dies (my little bats)
Paper Playtime - Halloween
Top Tip Tuesday - use 2 or more ribbons, lace or twine
Crazy 4 Challenges - Halloween
Stampin B's Design Team - Halloween
Moving Along With The Times - Halloween
My Mum's Craft Shop - dress up
Little Darlings Challenges - Fall or Halloween
Art Impressions - Halloween
Sweet Stampin - anything goes
Penny's Challenges - anything goes
