Loving Some Cows at the Outlawz Festive Friday's Challenge

Friday finally got here!! We have a new challenge  at the Outlawz Festive Friday's Challenge! Each week we give you four themes to choose from and you can enter up to three times per week! 

The themes this week are  For the Love of Cows, Playing Cards, Garden Veggies,  and Christmas.  

For my theme, I picked For the Love of Cows and made a Thank You card.

This card came together in less than 10 minutes. Minimal coloring with Copic markers on my cute Bugaboo image from the Mini Animals Sentiment set. I used a circle die to cut out the printed image and then layered onto my floral paper (which I've had for ages but didn't have the right use for it until now!!) I added a sheer ribbon and it was done! The inside is blank for writing a thank you message.
The finished size is 5 x 7 inches.

I hope you will visit Festive Friday's at the Outlawz and see what my teammates have made!

Bugaboo is always our sponsor for the Festive Friday's Challenge and is giving a great prize of 4 digital images to our lucky July winner! Please visit Bugaboo as they are so generous with their prizes and we simply couldn't have challenges without them!

Thanks for coming by!  Have a fantastic weekend!

Fun in the Sun at Outlawz Sketch Challenge 7-26-2017

Time for a new Sketch Challenge at the Outlawz!

As July winds down, and we look forward to August, I have to say I've really enjoyed using the Drawn by Krista images this month. Images don't get much cuter than this!

Drawn by Krista has sponsored us all month. Our July winner will get to choose 3 digis from Krista's Etsy Shop.

I can't wait to show you my card. But first, I will show you our sketch for this week!

And for my Fun in the Sun card, I chose images from the Beach Set by Drawn by Krista.

I used Copic markers to color in the three images in the squares. The Fun in the Sun sentiment is by Close to my Heart and available only during July.  The little green felt bow is by Stampin' Up! My background paper is from my stash and I wish I had more of it!

Hope you will come by the Outlawz Sketch Challenge and see what my talented teammates have come up with!

Thanks for dropping in! I love having visitors!

50's Chic by Sheepski Designs

I recently won the image 50's Chic by Sheepski Designs in the SheepskiDesigns Facebook challenge and I thought it was the perfect image to do some paper piecing for the Through the Craft Room Door special challenge. The challenge technique is paper piecing and the themes are Girls, Travel, or Graduation. I chose Girls, but I think the sentiment might also apply to Graduation.

Before doing the paper piecing, I colored my image with Copic markers. After running the lavender patterned paper through my printer, I then cut out the dress and glued it on top of the colored image. I used a gray copic marker to highlight the belt and upper part of the bodice. I added a couple of Itty Bitty Sparkles by Close to my Heart to the belt. My sentiment is by Stampin' Up!  I used a stitched label die by Gina Marie to frame the sentiment.  I found a piece of complementary lavender floral paper from the same paper stack as the dress paper. I finished off with some randomly placed rhinestones.(Stampin' Up!)

I'm also entering this into Andrea's SheepskiDesigns Facebook Challenge #14
