The Outlawz Sketch Challenge - May 4

Morning Peeps.  As you read this, I am undergoing corneal surgery on my right eye to help correct my vision and slow down the process of losing my sight.

The Sketch Challenge at The Outlawz is up and running.  Our wonderful sponsor for this month is Cre8tive Hands.  Why not take a few minutes and check both out.  It would be nice to see you enter the challenge. I did a little paper piecing for his scarf.  Although the sketch didn't have one, I added a sentiment because the image reminded me of someone with a sore throat and keeping it warm with a scarf.

This is my card for May for CraftyHazelnut's Patterned Paper Challenge.

I decided I wanted to another shaped card.  I found this one in the Silhouette store.  I fell in love with it and after a couple false starts, it came together.
I used Basic Grey patterned paper and Core'dinations cardstock.  The bling is from Want2Scrap.  Flowers are by Recollections and stamp is from Verses Rubber Stamps.

A Beautiful Mess Challenge - April 29

Welcome, Peeps, to the second challenge for A Beautiful Mess.  Since we are just starting out (our first challenge was March 25), you may want to take a look at the site and enter a card.  It is always Anything Goes.  This month our sponsor is Fabrika Fantasy.  I chose to use Happy Lion.  It comes in a pre-colored and outline image.  I used the pre-colored image printed on photo paper.  The die cuts are from two Miss Kate Cuttables files - Cactus and Hard Day's Work (the rock).  The clouds are a die from Sweet 'N Sassy.  The card base is done with Recollections cardstock.  Once again, my Cameo wad very busy for this card, printing and cutting the image, the cactus and the rock.

The Outlawz Wednesday Challenge 4/27

I'm almost sorry to see this month end.  I have really been enjoying using the images by the sponsor for The Outlawz Wednesday Sketch Challenge. Art by Miran.  I just love her images.  This one is called "Anyone for Tea."

I turned the sketch one-quarter turn to the left to use this tall image.  The cardstock is from Recollections. Ribbon is from American Crafts.  I found the bling butterflies in the dollar (now $1.50) bins at Michaels a few years back.  The photo doesn't show it, but they are a very pale light blue.  The die cut is a Spellbinders Die.  The letters are from a sheet of letters I have had for several years.  I guess I should find a challenge that uses old materials from your stash and enter it.  The ribbon, bling and letters all are ancient as supplies go.  I printed and cut the image with my Cameo and colored the image with Copic markers.  Then I added Glossy accents to the bow and teapot.  I popped the image onto the purple layer using 3M Foam Tape.
