I LOVE A 'NO SUBJECT' THEME!

 Hi All!  Today is October 27th and OUTLAWZ GREETINGS CHALLENGE
HAS A VERY COOL THEME FOR A CHALLENGE - ANYTHING GOES!!!
Our Sponsor is Inky Impressions  and my stamp I chose to use in this challenge is:
WINTER MAILBOX LILI
 I chose some wonderful postcard dp for my background - some beautiful handmade flowers from my friend Pammie, and little goodies I save up for my Christmas cards as years go by.

All coloring was with my copics and sorry I usually don't keep track of the nos. anymore.  But someone asked about my skin colors, I routinely use E00 and E01 and just go from there with many other blendings.  

I hope you hop on over to Outlawz Greetings and join us in our ANYTHING GOES challenge.  Meanwhile, check into our party and do the scavenger hunt!  \

See you there!

KNIT ONE - PURR TWO


 Image artist - Fawn Palmer - Squigglefly

NATIONAL YARN DAY - OCTOBER 10

Time to pick up those needles and hooks and enjoy that wonderful feeling of yarn.

What am I doing?  I'm crocheting and knitting hats and scarves for the BACKPACK PROJECT.  My daughter is the President and each year she heads up a drive to give away BACK PACKS full of school supplies.  They also receive their choice of caps/hats and scarves and other donations the many volunteers knit and crochet for this fabulous organization.  August's 'give away' was 238 complete back packs and all of the knit/crochet items were totally given new homes.

Another drive will start in Jan. 2015.  Won't you help NOW SO WE MEET HER GOAL?

If you'd like to get that yarn out of the closet now (any colors) and start knitting and crocheting, we have a lot of simple patterns for you whether a knitter or crocheter and if you'd simply like to donate yarn, hey that's just as super!  Just email me. 

And if you'd like to look thru a wonderful website - my favorite - check out THE CROCHET CROWD!

IT'S MY PARTY

For the Week of October 6th at 
OUTLAWZ GREETINGS CHALLENGE -2 AWESOME SPONSORS!!!
Sponsor: The Stamping Boutique   

 and The Stamping Chef

Theme: It's my Party
I have so few birthday/party cards for boys, this was a great addition to my card collection.  However when I couldn't find the background dp I was searching for, I just about gave up hope.  When all of a sudden I spotted my huge file of specialty papers and inside were many beautiful backgrounds, so I chose this holographic paper.  Then fearing it wouldn't photo, I was totally amazed to see it would!

I now have one happy boy birthday card!!!!  
Come on over to OUTLAWZ GREETINGS CHALLENGE and enter our one week challenge with a theme of "IT'S MY PARTY!"
