ANYTHING GOES AT OUTLAWZ

IT'S ANYTHING GOES AT
OUTLAWZ GREETING CHALLENGE
And that is our theme all week long!

November 30 thru Dec7

I want to holler out a huge thank you to Linda Simpson for being a guest designer on the group all the month of November.  Her work is so beautiful, I can't stop singing her praises.  Her wonderful blog is at http://lindasimpsoncraftypieceofheaven.blogspot.com and you'll find her latest post at Outlawz there as well.  HUGS TO YOU LINDA!  Come back another month, will you?

Meanwhile back at the OUTLAWZ RANCH, we're spending a week doing our thing with ANYTHING GOES.  Here's my design for you, using:  BLOOMING SURPRISE HEDGEHOGS.

Our wonderful sponsor is:

  So come on over to Outlawz and have some fun with us this week.  Perhaps it's your time to win some prizes from all our wonderful weekly and monthly sponsors.

Now as a special surprise to myself, I am officially declaring I'm thru making Christmas Cards.  I do believe I am well endowed with a goodly number and it will surely be easy to create one or 2 if I do run out.    Here are my last 2 cards, both called Holly.  WOO HOO!

And this was a great challenge.  I kept with a few shades of fuchsia in various items from my stahs.  Oh I forgot to mention I'm on a no buy for the rest of 2015.  This means I buy absolutely nothing to embellish or use in my card making - including paper!  I have plenty, believe me.

So why not come on over to Outlawz Greetings Challenge (click there) and check the other cards the DT have created.  Life is good with the fairies of A&T Emerald!

OOPS! Missed my post of Nov 9.

This is card from 11/9 and I am so sorry I missed posting it.  Here it is almost Sat. already - some days I really need a whipping with a wet noodle!

Our challenge at OUTLAWZ GREETINGS CHALLENGE was to use sewing, either real or faux, which could have also been rub on faux stitching, which I realized I had a great deal of and didn't use!  Oh well, love my sewing machine.

 Come on over and visit our group's post and see what beautiful items they have created.

CHRISTMAS REFLECTIONS - Are Your Cards in Process?

NOVEMBER'S SURPRISES AT
OUTLAWZ GREETING CHALLENGE

FIRST OF ALL, Let me introduce to you, my reader, our newest Guest Design Team Member, Ms. Linda Simpson.  I've known Linda for awhile now and was delighted to hear she'd love to be a GDT for us........so photo and short bio below.  Read and come visit her work.


Hi my name is Linda and I am a craftaholic.  I have been crafting all my life but started paper crafting 16 years ago. I love different aspects of paper crafting and enjoy mixing different techniques onto my projects.
My favourite theme is vintage with a touch of steampunk. My favourite embellishments are Lace, Pearls, Flowers but of course I love to embellish and have to stop myself from over embellishing my projects.  I am very lucky that I work in the crafting industry for Personal Impressions as their social media manager as well as looking after their blogs and design team.  I do hope you like my project.
 
 
 AND NOW FOR OUR CHALLNGE OF THE WEEK.......
"Christmas Reflections" is our theme!
...using a shiny or mirrored embellishment on your Christmas-

November 2 thru 8

POPPY SEED GRAPHICS
THE FAIRY OF CHRISTMAS
 AND
 SLS CHRISTMAS BIRDS ON A BRANCH  (2 cards)


Now it's your turn.   Share that project with us - and inspire us!!!
