HAPPIEST OF NEW YEARS!!!

This month at OUTLAWZ GREETINGS we honor the New Year baby coming in this week!
Our Sponsor is the AWESOME: Aurora Wings
http://aurorawingschallenge.blogspot.com/
Theme: Happy New Year
 My digi is : MARIE ANTOINETTE

At Outlawz Greetings the most important requisite is that you have a semblance of a greeting on the outside of your card.  With the New Year, that is a no brainer, right?  Here are the rest of the rules:
Before seeing the creative inspiration from our Design Team, please read the guidelines below to qualify for prizes:
  1. Remember ~ you must have a sentiment on the front of your card to be eligible to win.
  2. YOU DO NOT have to have a colored image on your card. Also, non-card entries are acceptable as long as they have greetings on them.
  3. Please only one entry per week per challenge.
  4. No back linking. Any projects posted on your blog/online gallery before the start date of a challenge should not be entered and will not be eligible for prizes. 
  5. Please only post your own creations to the challenges.
Read the easy instructions on the challenge page and wallah, you are in the competition.  While here, why not try the progressive/freebie challenge as well?

So come on over to OUTLAWZ GREETINGS, and join me Monday in a great challenge with awesome rewards!

EMBOSS OR DIE CUT IT!


At Squigglefly Blogspot Challenge this week there is a challenge called "EMBOSS OR DIE CUT" something on your card.  I got to use up some more of my little pieces of die cuts and enjoyed making this card. 

The image is called HANKY by JAMES HORVATH.  I chose to create another Easel card.

Obviously our little dear has caught a cold just in time for the holidays.  I found the sentiment "HONK FOR THE HOLIDAYS" also at the Squigglefly store and thought it appropriate. 
 
 Below - interior
You can find this image and many more at Squigglefly's Store - come on over and find a fun image and enter into their challenge this week!

PATTERNS AND BLING

 December 8th - OUTLAWZ GREETINGS CHALLENGE
Sponsor: Lacy Sunshine
 
Theme: Use at least three patterns and some bling on your project

And for this project I chose to use
THEA BOO - Blowing Bubbles
She was such a sweetheart to color up!  The backgrd paper is actually one of the 3 design papers.  I just happened to have the flower design paper of daisies in my stash from another project!  Innovation!! - I painted 4 white pearls with my copics to get a matching pearl!
Quick interior for a note and wishes
