Hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving!  We gathered at my sister's with a large extended family and my BIL always invites some displaced young soldiers from Ft. Benning.  We had a wonderful time and we all reflected on our many blessings.  On Friday morning, as is tradition, my sis Rochelle, Mom and I drive to Atlanta and spend the weekend shopping!  It wouldn't be Thanksgiving without doing that.  We think we have been doing this for 33 years.  Now my daughter lives in Atlanta so we don't have to rent a hotel.  She joins us on Saturday and Sunday.

Color Challenge at The Outlawz

This week, Guylou is challenging us to make a card or project using more than one fold.  The DT outdid themselves with fabulous projects!  I decided to make a treat box.  I used an old CM template from the circle cutters that is shaped like a large flower.  I scored it and folded it into the shape you see below.  I saw this technique on a tutorial.

I added a little pink distressing ink to the edges of my basket and wrapped a small candle in tulle.  I also added some stickles to the floral digi by Sponsor: Delicious Doodles

Challenge At Guylou's Inimitabilities

You still have time to enter a FAB challenge at Guylou's!  Carla is challenging us to be "thankful", whether you celebrate Thanksgiving in the USA or just want to thank someone for being special in your life.  I used Guylou's "Apple Basket and Sunflowers".  It was so much fun to color up.  I embossed my papers and used my Copic Markers.  All of the papers are quite old!  Some old CM paper I have had forever.  Never to late to use your stash!

I hope all my friends will come over and join us this week and I hope everyone that celebrates Thanksgiving a blessed holiday!

The Holidays.......

The holidays are upon us, and as my usual style, the hurryer I go the behinder I get!  I love the inspiration photo that Ursula chose this week at the Color Challenge at The Outlawz.  Those gowns are just fabulous.  If I were a bit younger I would love to have one!

I used one of our sponsor's digis and she is an ethereal beauty!  I gave her an Avatar look.  I used Martha's small butterfly punch, metallic bronze and metallic gold and green papers.  (They don't show their soft shimmer very well in the photo).  The border punch is by Fiskar and my fabric is some bronze tulle I have had for a time.  I colored her with my Copic Markers.

Check out Delicious Doodle web site for some awesome and fun digis and come an join us at the Color Challenge!

The Outlawz Color Challenge

Time for the new weekly Color Challenge at The Outlawz!  Teresa is challenging us to make a vintage card or project.  She has inspired me to get to working on my memorial shadow box for my Dad who passed away two years ago.  I got the picture of my Dad from when he was in the military police.  The photo is about 60 years old.  The rifle bullet casing is from his 21 gun salute at his funeral.  This will be the center piece of my shadow box.  I hope to get it finished so I can upload it to share here.

I wanted to showcase Teresa's card also.  The photo is of her Dad during his service in Canada.  I think they were both handsome men!  What do ya think??

Looking forward to seeing all of you in the challenge!

Challenge at Guylou's!

I picked the challenge theme for this challenge and I named it "Tickle Me", add a feather to your project!  This was a lot of fun for me.  Back in October, our Ladies of Harley group had our annual fund raiser for Breast Cancer Awareness.  We all wear hot pink feather boas.  That inspired me to dress Guylou's image of Leah and Her Ribbon with a hot pink feather boa!

Hope you will come over the Guylou's Inimitability Blog and join in the fun!
