Paper Ala Mode

Today was again an Anything Goes Challenge at Paper Ala Mode at The Outlawz. Another Northwoods image.

Paper Ala Mode

The Paper Ala Mode challenge on The Outlawz for this past Saturday was Anything Goes. The stamp is from Northwoods. I colored it with copics and added a lot of glitter. So much pretty in real life than what the photo shows.

Yes, it is Christmas....

The Friday copic challenge on The Outlawz this week was Anything Goes (Including Christmas!). This is a new House Mouse stamp I recently acquired.

Birds or Butterflies

The Twisted Thursday Challenge on The Outlawz is an Anything Goes Challenge. The twist this week was to include birds or butterflies. The DP is from prima. This pack of paper works so well with just adding a quote to it.

Make it Fruity

The Tuesday color challenge was to use Commordore Blue, Lime Green, and Crescent Moon. You needed to "Make it Fruity". Here is my take on that theme.

National Cleaning Week

Did you know that this week was "National Cleaning Week?" Based on that fact, the CAS challenge on The Outlawz CAS challenge was to use something from your stash. I found this cute caterpillar embellishment that I had bought a long time ago hanging on my rack. Worked perfectly.

Hot Dog Day

Today is Hot Dog Day. The hot dog was cut out from a piece of fabric that featured.., yes, hotdogs! All kinds of hot dogs!  The background pattern is a Stampin' Up! background stamp.
Enjoy your hotdogs today!!

Simon Says Anything Goes

The Simon Says Stamp Challenge this week was "Anything Goes".  House Mouse image, colored with copics and various glitters added with Spica pens.


The House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge this week was Easter. I have no Easter House Mouse stamps, so I improvised. I covered the heart shaped petal that was on this image with an easter egg and then added the other eggs and flowers to the bottom of the card.

Simon Says Stamp

The Simon Says Stamp challenge this week was a sketch. I just acquired this great little pig from DRS. I used a DP on the left and an embossing folder on the right. I used nestabilities 4 for the layering, cutting the bottom layer, so I only used half. Guess that means I have another half to make another one of these cards.

Wednesday Sketch

Wednesday Sketch Challenge for The Outlawz. I used a magnolia stamp and candi in the corners of the card.

Color Challenge

The Tuesday Color Challenge on The Outlawz was to use Husky Orange, Dark Chocolate, and Glitzy Gold. I have the orange and chocolate. Forgot the gold. Unless of course, you consider my flourishes in the paper to have a gold tinge to them!

His and Her Birthday Cards

I made these cards for a friend who wanted His and Her Birthday cards for a 50th birthday. The Outlawz Twisted Thursday challenge was 3-D, so these worked perfectly.

Gotta have Green

The Monday Greeting card challenge on The Outlawz this week was to use green. I made my clover using spellbinders heart dies. There is a flat heart on the bottom and the top heart is scored and offset slightly.


The CAS challenge on The Outlawz this past week was "Die-namite." You needed to use a die cut on your card. I used the Tim Holtz birdcage and bird die.
