Juicy July at The Outlawz Tuesday Colour Challenge - Week 4



Please use this image as inspiration
This week at The Outlawz Tuesday Color Challenge, we will be using Sun Shower, Ultra Pure White and Planetarium Blue. This week Juicy July is "Add doodles".

I made the above card for my very best friend Patsy. She is the kind of friend who sticks through thick and thin. While I was going through a very rough patch in my life, Patsy was an anchor and helped me through it. I am so happy to have her as a friend. For my card, I used a Guylou's Inimitability image called Julia. Julia remind me a bit of Patsy. I hand doodles the border of the card for this week twist.



I hope you will join us this week at The Outlawz Tuesday Color Challenge. Please go have a look at what my fellow DT members and our Guest Designer did for this challenge. What talent!!! I am looking forward to see what you will do with this color combination.

Another Wedding Card



Surprisingly and pleasantly, I got another order for a wedding card from another co-worker. The tricky thing is that it is for the same wedding as the other order. I had to come up with something different and still classy. I found the tutorial for the above card at Stamp-N-Design with Lynn Pratt. If you are interested to make this card, please visit her blog and pick up the template.

Challenges entered:
4 Crafty Chicks - weddings

1-2-3 It's a recipe at Guylou's Inimitability


It is time for another challenge at Guylou's Inimitability. This time around, Kim is hosting the challenge and she is challenging us to use a simple recipe for our projects:
  • 1 ribbon or lace
  • 2 decorative papers
  • 3 or more pieces of bling ...rhinestones, metal charm, etc.
I made the above card according to the instruction. I used only left-over scraps for this project. I like to be able to use my craft supplies without wasting. I used Chuck and the Candy Jar for my project. I love this image as it gives me an opportunity to use several colors for the candy part... plus Chuck is soooo cute.



The challenge at Guylou's Inimitability starts today and ends on July 28th at 10:00pm. You could win a $5 gift certificate from Guylou's Inimitability store and an opportunity to be a Guest Designer in an upcoming challenge. Don't forget to visit my fellow DT members' blogs and see what they have done and also our Guest Designer, Linda! You can find all the links on the Guylou's Inimitability Challenge blog.

I am looking forward to see what you will come up with.

I made this card for my very good client, Brandi. She wanted a wedding card with no image (that's a tough one for me). I am not sure she will like it. My son thinks that it is too earthy. I'm on the fence for this one. I hope she will like it. I'll keep my fingers crossed.

Monkey Around Baby Shower Card


I made this card for one of my good clients. Her girlfriend is expecting a girl and they are having a shower for her. Brandi told me that her girlfriend looooooooves monkeys and that the card had to have one on it. I found this super cute little monkey at MelonHeadz Illustrating.

Juicy July at The Outlawz Tuesday Colour Challenge - CHRISTMAS IN JULY


Please use this image as inspiration

It's Christmas in July at The Outlawz Tuesday Color Challenge!! I was given the opportunity to select the colors for this challenge. That was not easy as I am not in the Christmas spirit at all. I have been waiting for summer to arrive for so long, Christmas is the last thing on my mind. Anyway, I decided to go with Red, White and Black and my Juicy July is to ADD STICKLES.


I selected Angel Chuck for my card. I drew him last year and was planning to make a few Christmas cards with him, but never got around to do so. I thought that this challenge would be a good opportunity to use him. I like Chuck; he is mischievous and just to think that someone would make him an angel in a Christmas Pageant makes me smile. I can imagine him making faces throughout the play and missing his cues. I Stickled his wing for the Juicy July.

I hope you will join us this week and celebrate Christmas in July at The Outlawz Tuesday Color Challenge. I am looking forward to see what you will do with this color combination. A random winner will be selected from all this week entries and the winner will get the "Give a Gift Series" from Guylou's Inimitability.



That's not all, your entries will also count for our monthly draw. You could win a $12 Gift Certificate from this month sponsor Happileigh Scrappin' Digistamps.
