Wishing All A Happy New Year!!

Hope everyone had a blessed and fun Christmas and Chanuka! I know that I did. My grandson was a delight as he could understand the whole concept of Christmas this year. It was so much fun.

Over at The Outlawz our Color Challenge is up and running! Sara chose the absolutely yummy inspiration photo and color pallet and it is lovely! Hope everyone will come over and play this week. We should all have a little more time now that the Christmas season is over. Larry and I are super boring on New Years. He is usually in bed well before midnight and I watch New Year's Rockin' Eve! Woo Hoo, excitement! lol

I want to give a shout out to my fellow DTeamies, Guylou, Sara, Ursula and Teresa, without whom I would be lost! They are just the best!

Four More Days........

Here is the lovely and uncommon color palette for The Outlawz Color Challenge this week. I adore this palette and would love to own that wreath! You have to come over and see what gorgeous creations have already been submitted!

I'm looking forward to Christmas and spending time with my family. (Also getting a little craft time in)! It should be a lot of fun this year with Dean. He will be 3 in March and totally knows what is going on! He loved visiting Santa!

I truly hope you and yours have a blessed Christmas and that my Jewish friends have a wonderful Chanukah! May your New Year be bright!

A Day Late and a Dollar Short!

It's the story of my life these days! The faster I go.....the behinder I get! I have not actually crafted in over two weeks! Hope I remember how! I am so glad I had my projects ready early. This is my take on the color combo at The Outlawz this week. The colors are "Frosty-licious"! (That's my new buzz word) :) I know everyone is busy this time of year with holiday preps, but I do hope you will join us and make a "Frosty-licious" card in the Color Challenge! I promise I will give you a "Frosty-licous" shout out!

Dean's Visit With Santa

Dean had no shy bones about visiting Santa at the Fantasy in Lights!
He told Santa everything he saw on the trolley ride and when
Santa asked what he wanted, he said a baseball helmet!
He is fascinated by all sports and noticed everyone wears a helmet.

Fantasy in Lights

Had a wonderful time at the "Fantasy in Lights" display at Callaway Gardens at Pine Mountain, Georgia. Pam, my daughter's MIL, and I rode up and met my daughter, her son and sweet little Dean to ride the trolley through a beautiful winter wonderland. It was so fun to watch Dean's enthusiasm! He kept our whole trolley entertained. Then it was off to see Santa. He ran right up and hopped on his lap and let him have an ear full! I will post the picture later when I have chance to scan it in.

It is Tuesday and that means, "Color Challenge at the Outlawz"! I got to choose this week's color combo and it is "frosty-lishis"! I know everyone will create lovely, crafty projects! Can't wait to see them! Come out and join Guylou, Sara, Teresa, Ursula and myself as we say, "Show us what ya got"!

WHEW! I'm Tired!

My Project!

This is our inspiration and Color Palette at The Outlawz that was chosen by Sara. I think it is such a warm and fall-like palette that will be fun to work with! Here is my take on it with an adorable image by The Paper Shelter, our sponsor for this month! They are giving a $20 gift certificate for the winner of the challenge this month! Check them out! ALSO.....The Paper Temptress giving a lucky winner on The Outlawz site this month a paper pack!

I, along with my Mom, sis and daughter, braved the crowds in Atlanta for our annual after Thanksgiving shopping trip! It wouldn't feel like the holiday without our jaunt! This is our 30th year! I did ALMOST finish up my Christmas shopping. I have so much to be thankful for......My Family, Friends, great job, and a roof over my head and food on the table. Blessings to everyone!

Tuesday's Wonderful World of Color

This pretty bedroom ensemble is the photo that inspired me to pick these colors for the color challenge at The Outlawz. The adorable digi is from The Paper Shelter, Color challenges sponsor for November. I love these images! There are so many cute ones to choose from. Our November Novelty "Twist" this week is to use gingham or houndstooth paper. I made a stand up card with a pop up sentiment and added some feathers for texture. I had fun putting this one together.

Come on over and strut your stuff! There are great prizes to be won, but you have to play!

Halloween Frame

Inspiration Photo
Color Blocks

The Color Challenge at The Outlawz is a fun one this week! You have to use something recycled. I recycled a Coke can top. I embossed it with shiny embossing powder and threaded a ribbon thru it. I used my Cricut to cut out my frame design and added starry buttons and a Halloween metal embellie on the bottom Hope everyone will come on over to The Outlawz and submit your creations!

The "R" Girls at the Craft Fair

Rhonda, Rochelle and I, along with our nephew Drew, participated in a Church Craft Fair on Saturday. Rochelle and Rhonda had scads of journals, gift card holders and flower pens. I had cards and Drew had shirts that he designed and screen printed. We had a lot of fun, but there was not much traffic. We found out that two other churches with much larger memberships had the same thing going on!

Breast Cancer Awareness

Everyone knows that October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. It is a cause near and dear to me as one of The "R" Girls, my beautiful sister Rochelle, is a survivor. She has battled cancer twice in her lifetime and beat it! I dedicate these cards to her.

The first image and second images are from Guylou's Inamitability. She is a friend and fabulous artist! The third image is from "A Day for Daisies". I am going to make three more and package them for our "Pink Ladies Motorcycle Ride" next Saturday. We have a sale table going up and I hope someone will want them! LOL

Leaves Are Falling!

Gorgeous inspiration photo and colors from Brenda at the Color Challenge at The Outlawz! Hope everyone will hop on over and play this week! Fall has finally arrived in Georgia and I am inspired to create some fall goodness.
Here is my interpretation.
I used an Ippity stamp and embossed it with black distress powder. I did the same with the sentiment and the leaves.


WOW! What a Party week at The Outlawz! I had a lot of fun and got a magnitude of inspiration from everyone's FANTABULOUS creations! Hope everyone had a great time and enjoyed the challenges, Blog Hop and fantastic games that we had! I want to give a HUGE shout out to all of our fabulous sponsors!! They were so generous and they were all fantastic!

Life will be back to normal tonight and I will post the Color Challenge for the next week late tonight! Hope everyone will be back to play!

Hugz to everyone!
