Happy Tuesday!

First, I would like to wish a very Happy Birthday  to team member, Laurian!  Wishing you many blessings, gal!

I chose our inspiration photo for this week's Color Challenge at The Outlawz.  I just love the color combo and the photo is so summery.  Our "twist" this week is to add ribbon.  I know everyone has a stash of ribbon laying around.

I used an old butterfly and flower stamp I have had.  Unfortunately, I did not save the manufacturer's name and they are unmounted.  I used Ranger Arts Distress Ink in Peeled paiint.  Made the butterfly's "deely bobbers" out of copper wire and attached them with Zots glue dots.  My papers are from Creative Memories and they are double sided prints.  I had totally forgotton I had these papers and I really like them.  A gem on the flower and bow finishes it off.

Our sponsor this month is"
Digi Stamps for Joy

 Hope you will visit their site.  They have some gorgeous digis waiting for your creative spirit!

Over at TTCRD the "Anything Goes" Challenge is up and Team B really has some awesome inspiration for you.

Happy Tuesday!

I am excited today because I am meeting another DT from The Outlawz, Theresa Lee!  She is down seeing her son, Chris, graduate from school out at Ft. Benning.  He is a true Officer and a Gentlemen!

Speaking of The Outlawz, today's Color Challenge is a fun one!  Our sponsor for this month is DS4J and several of us used the same image.  It is always fun to see everyone's take when using the same image.  We again welcome our guest DT for the month, Suze Woods.  Laurian chose the gorgeous inspiration photo and color palette.

Our Twist is to add sparkle

I love this peacock image by DS4J!  I used my Copics to color him
and used stickles and gems to add my sparkle.

At TTCRD the Anything Goes Challenge is up this morning.  Team A has some great cards for your inspiration and our sponsor is Eureka Stamps!  An awesome stamp company with zillions of images for the choosing!

I used Eureka Stamps cute summer frog.  I colored him up with my Copics and found this cute Summer Lovin' charm in my stash that I know I have had for years!  "Hop" on over and join the fun!
If you want to come join another fun challenge at The Outlawz, don't forget the Creative Freebie Challenge.  Sandi and Anne have provided us with two awesome images to create with.  If you send one of them (or me) your email addy, you will receive the images to play with.  If you play every week with one of their images, you will receive more!  No excuse not to come over!

Sandi's gorgeous sun flowers and Anne's adorable frog floating on the lake are the two images up for grabs!  Hope to see you at all of the challenges this week!

Here is the inspiration image for you this week:
We are calling this month "Auspicious August" and your twist is to add a tag.

My Project

I used a DS4J image of a lovely Geisha.  I used my Copic markers to color her, a Nestibilities die that came on their leaf die set and another Nestibilities die for the background.  I distressed the edges on that one with orange Color Box ink chalk. I used an embossing folder on my tag that I free drew and cut out, an orange brad and orange ribbon and purple fiber.

My Projuct:
Being a tap dancer, I couldn't resist this adorable image.  Using my Copics I colored her up.  My layered heart was cut with a Creative Memories heart punch and I added a clear pearl center.  That is an EK Success border punch and hand made banner.  I had these old metal metallic "dots" that I added in the corner and the PP I got at Michael's in the racks.  The cardstock is all Bazzill.  

So.....two great challenges and no excuses not to play.  Come out, come out whereever you are, and thanks for looking!
