HAPPY NEW YEAR 2016!

And just for you - a beautiful piece of prose from Penny O'Dell, a great artist 
and super OUTLAWZ friend, who passed in December (written by D.Simone).

“May Light always surround you;
Hope kindle and rebound you.
May your Hurts turn to Healing;
Your Heart embrace Feeling.
May Wounds become Wisdom;
Every Kindness a Prism.
May Laughter infect you;
Your Passion resurrect you.
May Goodness inspire
your Deepest Desires.
Through all that you Reach For,
May your arms Never Tire.”
D. Simone

The movie WHITE CHRISTMAS (1954) becomes a memory.  I loved working on this card.
The snow in the background is actually dropped from the tip of an artists brush!


(From the web): White Christmas is a 1954 American musical romantic comedy film directed by Michael Curtiz and starring Bing Crosby, Danny Kaye, Rosemary Clooney, and Vera-Ellen, loosely based on the 1942 film Holiday Inn.[3] Filmed in VistaVision and Technicolor, it features the songs of Irving Berlin, including a new version of the title song, "White Christmas", introduced by Crosby in the earlier film.

OUTLAWZ GREETINGS CHALLENGE GROUP

  

And our theme is:  Put some music on your card - any theme.  Well I chose a section from a lovely video going around the net.  The cat outside the closed bedroom door is crying for his ancestors because he's sure everyone has abandoned him.  A martini would help!

WELCOME ABOARD LIV L.!

OUTLAWZ GREETINGS CHALLENGE (AND I ESPECIALLY) open up this MONTH OF DECEMBER with a wonderful WELCOME ABOARD TO MY FRIEND, LIV!  
For December she is our new GUEST DESIGNER with absolutely beautiful creations.  In January 2016 she will move into our group as a permanent Design Team Member!  WOO HOO!


My name is Liw (pronounce Liv) who lives in Sweden and I am 41 years old. I am a single mother of two boys at the ages 5 and 9 in November. Currently working as a Front Desk Agent at a summer hotel and are loving it.

I have always seen myself as a crafty person. I have had an eye for decoration, decorating, coming up with solutions to do things easier. I have done some drawing when I was younger, even attended a drawing, clay, photo, theater course. My mother has always been creating things when I was a kid. She crochet or knitted clothes to my Barbie dolls, she even knitted clothes for us, as well as doing cross stitch paintings.

I have done some knitted baby blankets to some friends and family members, I do Pearl jewelry such as earrings, bracelets, necklace and even some rings. About a year ago I started to do some coloring. I don't recall how I came across the Promarkers, but I got into it right away. I bought a set and then it was on... along the way I have learned a lot about making cards and how to use stamps. How to color with the Promarkers and are still learning new things everyday.

I am a member of different groups at Facebook where I share my Craft as well as get inspiration and tips on doing better. I never thought that I would be this hooked on doing my own cards and I am loving every second of it. I even started a Promarkers Group in Swedish since I didn't find one and here I try to give tips to others that just started with promarkers, as well as other members gives tips and tricks.
