Fabulous February at The Outlawz Tuesday Colour Challenge - Week 4


Last challenge for the month of February at The Outlawz Tuesday Color Challenge. This week Roxann is challenging us to use Black, White and your favorite Color.

I cheated a bit. I used a Dark Orange as my favorite color. Well, although it is one of my favorite colors... pink will always be my first love. For this project I used a digi by Beyond the Fringe Creations, called Stacked cups. I have lots of friends who enjoys their coffees, so I know I will be able to use this card for one of them.


This month our sponsor will be Di's Digi's. Our winner this month will win 5 digis of her/his choice. Please take a moment to visit her store and to see all her wonderful images.


I hope you will join us this week at The Outlawz Tuesday Color Challenge. Can't wait to see what you will create.

Fabulous February at The Outlawz Tuesday Colour Challenge - Week 3


This week is a sad week. My dear friend Sara had to step down from the Outlawz DT and we will miss her. I pray that her health will improve and that the Lord will bring total healing to her body. Hang in there, Sara! We love you!

Sara selected this week color combo at Tuesday Color Challenge. She is challenging us to make an all white project (except for image that is used).  This week the Fabulous February Twist is "Add a flourish".
 
Please use this image as inspiration
I decided not to use an image this week and make a thank you card for all white elements. I added a Thanks that I had on a sheet of rub-on words. The Fleur-de-lys punch is by EK. I used my Cricut to cut the Fleur-de-lys flourish. For the inside, I used a wonderful stamp set which I think is by Inkadinkadoo.


This month our sponsor will be Di's Digi's. Our winner this month will win 5 digis of her/his choice. Please take a moment to visit her store and to see all her wonderful images.

Lace and Pearls are always in fashion


Growing up I was a real tomboy. I loved to wear jeans and t-shirts more than dresses and pretty clothes. My poor mom was beside herself every time I walked in the house covered with dirt from head to toes. It was not before my 18th birthday that I finally decided that maybe I should look like a girl since that is what I am. I started wearing dresses and pretty clothes. I even let my hair grow long. I started wearing make up and finally graduated to pumps and cute shoes soon after. It was a real extreme make over. Many years later, I still wear dresses and pretty clothes, but I also love to wear my jeans and t-shirts... they are so much more comfortable. ;)

So when Brenda came up with the new challenge at Guylou's Inimitability and challenged us to make a project using lace and pearls, it brought back all the memories I wrote above.


A while ago, my dear friend Gina gave me some beautiful paper pads. The papers are so pretty and I already used a few on other projects and I knew I wanted to use one set in particular for this one. It is called Madeline by Prima Marketing. I just love the beautiful flower patterns and the great tags that match. I used one of my new images called Lotus goes shopping. I used the version with long hair; it also come with a short hair version. I added a little bit of lace and a whole lot of pink pearls to make it as girly girly as possible.

The challenge starts today and ends at 10:00pm on March 1st. A random winner will be selected and will win a $10 gift certificate from Guylou's Online Store and will have the opportunity to be a Guest Designer on one of our upcoming challenges.

Please take a moment to go see what my fellow DT members and our Guest Designer, Claire, did for this challenge at Guylou's Inimitability.

Fabulous February at The Outlawz Tuesday Colour Challenge - Week 1


A new month of challenges is starting at the Outlawz Tuesday Color Challenge. This week, Ursula is our host and she is challenging us to use the following awesome color combo: Pandora Purple, Overt Green and Candid Blue. This week the Fabulous February Twist is "Add Buttons".


For my project I used one of my new images from the February release called Clown Bear. I love to color clowns as you can do so much with different colors. I added a small button on his outfit and a few more on the side for good measure. The inside sentiment is French and means: A small note to let you know that I am thinking of you.
