Friday Challenge BBO...and no coloring

Today's challenge at notimetostamp #105 is BBO and no coloring. What is BBO ..."better butt out"or" best buddy out"??? Yikes...this had me stymied,so after reading more closely I found out it means black/brown ink only with no coloring. No coloring! you've got to be kidding me. I love to color. This is a low blow, but after a few tears I decided to join in . Now I know why it's called a challenge cause I wanted to start a fight...I love to color. But I guess I already said that so I gave in and set out to create. Hmmm what's white all over and sweet as can be you ask???
it's a cute little snowman who is freezing his tush off out in the bitter cold. Since he feels so cold I figured a black card makes a deadly combo but feeling sorry for him I decided to bring in some heat with a red band on his hat. This set is a cutie I picked up at Mike's place for a steal...love those 50% off coupons. It is Inkadinkado. Self explanatory card...stamp with black ink on every thing, add a glob of glitter glue, smear around and you've got snow, put on a red & white polka dotted ribbon to add a bit of coloring...oops I meant a bit of color and you are done.
Happy weekend peeps. We have great sunshine today and are supposed to have Indian Summer type weather. Love it.

My interpretation of BBO = Brownie Bake Off LOL
I love your sense of humor Pat....you give me the giggles so often when I visit here:)
Great card for not putting any color down!! That poor snowman is probably thinking "Bring Back Blue" so he can stop melting! LOL
Enjoy your indian summer weekend - ditto for my area:)
