A Gift

Good morning! Happy Wednesday!

We are starting December challenges over at the Outlawz Sketch Challenge.

This week at the Outlawz Sketch Challenge, I used a Thinlets Die set from Close to my Heart called Gift. My papers are from Close to my Heart and Paper Studio. The twine is from Close to My Heart, too. It has a gold thread through it. On the dotted circle are some rhinestones I just received from a treasured friend!

First, here is the Sketch

And here is my card. As much as I love coloring, it was nice to put a card together without sitting down to color first.

The Sketch team is providing a prize package this month.

I hope you will stop by our Sketch Challenge at the Outlawz. We have a special page where you can go and see all the sketches from 2015 and 2016, just in case you get stuck on thinking of a card design!!

Thanks for stopping in!!

Santa's List Day

This week at Festive Friday's Challenge at the Outlawz, we have four new themes and the one I picked is Santa's List Day!   The other themes are Santa's Workshop, Christmas Angel Day, and Brownie Day.

Here is my card using a Bugaboo image.

I colored with Copic markers and made my own background paper using stamps and red and green inks and some gold heat embossing. It's been a while since I attempted making my own background paper and I did enjoy it!

Festive Friday's has two sponsors every month!

Our first sponsor is a2zScrapbooking.  The prize for the monthly winner will be a digi kit. What fun!! a2zScrapbooking sells so many products and they are the exclusive dealer for Hero Arts Digital products!

Our second sponsor is Bugaboo!
The prize is $21 worth of digital images.

I hope you will check out the Outlawz!

Thanks for dropping by!!

December Progressive Challenge at the Outlawz

Hello everyone!

Today is the 1st day of December and over at the Outlawz, we have a new Progressive challenge that started today! Our image is called 65snowman and is so adorable and was given to us by Sandi Huggett of Sandi's Samples.

Sandi's Facebook page

Here is my card. Hope you will stop by the challenge and see what my teammates have made with the cute image!

I colored the cute image with Copic markers. The snowflakes are diecuts by Close to my Heart. 


We had a great response for our November challenge.  If you took part in this progressive challenge in November, you will automatically receive by email the December image. If you didn't take part but want to, it is easy to join the fun.

First, you must be a member of the Outlawz. If you aren't a member, just drop by and ask to join. After your request is approved, you can join the Progressive Challenge or any of our other seven challenges.

Next, you will need to register to play. Do this by sending an email to the address on the challenge page with your name and email address and an email will be sent to you.
The rules are very simple: join the challenge, join the progressive/freebie group, send us an email to register and then enter a project made with the image supplied before 6:00 p.m. EST on the last day of the month and you will automatically get the next image. If for any reason you don’t get your project made and you would like to rejoin us, you can buy the image of the month from the sponsor's store and as long as you enter it before the end of the month you will get the next one free and you will then get them automatically each month you enter a project.
