Today at The Outlawz we are getting our Tropical on!  Laurian chose a gorgeous photo for your inspiration and our color palette.  Her photo of the Bird of Paradise was taken on her holiday.  Your Twist this week is to make your project Tropical!

I have been trying to use my Cricut a little more.  The Hibiscus flowers were cut from the Life's a Beach cartridge and I place jewels in the center of them.  The font is also from the same cartridge.  The two background die cuts are made with Nestibilities dies and I added a little Stickles glitter in the deep yellow to the stem of the flowers and inked the edge of my card with yellow Cat's Eye chalk.

My card for this week

The digi is from Oak Pond and I used Copic Markers to color it up.  I put a "dot" of Shiny Accents on the Lady bug spots, used a small doily, lavender pearls, white satin ribbon and added tiny lavender pearls to it.  My cardstock is from my stash and it from Creative Memories.  It came pre-embossed and I have had it forever!  I used a decorative corner rounder also from Creative Memories.

Get Your Color On!

Lindsay is challenging us to use White and pick two other colors from the palette and make up your own TWIST.
My Card
I used the white, black and pink for my palette and a cute little bunny stamp from Stampin' Up.
I also used two tiny heart punches and an egg punch along with a tiny leaf punch.  My TWIST 
was to use a die cut.  I used one of my Nestibilities dies in two different sizes for my bunny background.
Little Bunny Foo Foo is colored with Copics in W1, W3 and W5 with a little pink in the ears.
I wrote my own sentiment with a Creative Memories Pink journaling pen.

Color Challenge is so excited to have as our sponsor for the

Come Out and Play!

Color challenge this week has a fun theme of using balloons at your twist.  I used the balloon die cut from Sizzix.  It is one of the small ones.  I chalked the edges for a little definition, and used Glossy accents on the cut outs on the balloons and attached some white twine and a little piece of ribbon.  My image is from a very old set of Stampin' Up stamps and I colored with my Copic Markers.  I used my Creative Memories oval cutting system and an embossing folder from Sizzix.  The crocheted flower is from Michael's and I put a metal embellie on it.


The "Anything Goes" Challenge is up on the TTCRD Challenge Blog.  Use you imagination and come up with something FABULOUS!

Our sponsor this week is "All Dressed Up" and they certainly have some delightful digis!  The one I used is just precious with her little back pack and puppy.  I used my same ovals from CM, Copic Markers, and some distressed papers that were on clearance at Michael's in their racks.  Used two little flower punches and a small leaf punch, and a bit of ribbon.  Come and join us!

I have been using my Cricut a lot this month.  It has been sorely neglected!
This is for my grandson, Dean who turned 5 this month!  I used Jolly Red,
Jungle Green, Digger Yellow, Deep Denim, and the Clean White.
OK, so I used them ALL!  My little monster is holding his flower balloon

Forgot to post the Color Challenge Palette!  I seem to be having a lot of senior moments lately.

Roll Tide and other things

Today's "Anything Goes" challenge at Through The Craftroom Door is up for your fun!  Today, I have used an adorable Cheerleader digi from the Paper Shelter.  I just love their art!  They have the cutest images and they are fun to color up.  My husband and I are huge Alabama fans so I just had to use their colors and the houndstooth paper I found at Michael's in there rack.  You will have to wait until the TTCRD magazine comes out to see how I put her together, but I think she is pretty cute!  Be watching for the magazine which will come out shortly.  If you don't have a subscription, your are missing out on great tutorials and free digis!

At our Color Challenge at The Outlawz, the ladies have worked their magic to bring you some great inspiration cards to spark you imagination.  Ursula selected our inspiration photos and colors and Laurian brought them to life.  My card is made using one of Anne Fenton's digis.  She is our wonderful sponsor for this month and your can score six of her digis in a random drawing at the end of the month.  You just have to submit a project this week to be eligible to go into the drawing.

I used her little Native American Girl and colored her up using my Copic Markers that I always get at OOZAK.  I used the Southwest Cricut Cartridge to my background and the Thunderbirds below.  I used two different tiny flower thumb punches I scored at Michaels on a dump rack for $1.00 each.  I used brown and lavender cardsto as well as some sea foam green cardstock.  I put my fiber under two small brown gems from Reminisce and I did not use a sentiment because I am waiting to see what occasion I will use this card.

I would love to see all my friends come on over and play at these two sites this week.  We have awesome prizes up for grabs!

Garden Ladder

This week at The Outlawz our challenge is to pick two colors from the inspiration photo and use them on your project along with the "one" color that Penny selected.  Her selection this week is white.  I used coral and green on my card.  Our sponsor, Anne's Digital Art, provided us with gorgeous images to use and I chose her garden ladder.  My twist is to add pearls.

I used a Sizzix embossing folder that I felt looked "garden-ee", my copic markers, leafy sticker border, and I inverted the heart border from Martha Stewart.  The small border in coral and white is also from the same sticker sheet as the leaves, and I have had it for years.
