Just Missed It!

Yup, I just missed Wednesday! I just knew I would have posted this earlier, but I'm just going to have to give myself credit for trying...  Wednesday is when I'm supposed to share a project for the Sketch Challenge on The Outlawz. Here's what I would've posted Wednesday but am instead posting now...on Thursday:

The Greeting Farm Hybrid=Charlotte Chic + The Twisted Kit's Desiree (colored with Copics) and Miss Teagan Sue papers from Bazzill

That cutie is a hybrid - the head is The Greeting Farm's Charlotte Chic, and the body is Desiree from the Twisted Kit by The Greeting Farm. The sentiment is also from the kit.

Here's this week's sketch if you want to play along:

We have prizes...

Is this a Church Hat?

Look at me - it's actually still Wednesday when I'm posting my Wednesday card!! :D Go me, go me! *insert cheesy happy dance*  My laptop is on the fritz again, and I'm on my desktop. This will be quick-ish because I get a headache being down here in the basement. I probably need to vacuum and maybe get another light bulb for one that's out...

Anyway, this is my card for this week's sketch challenge at The Outlawz.

The main stamp is Millie from Loralie Stamps, and the sentiment is by Inkadinkado. I made two other cards that I shared on YT with this stamp, but I don't think I put them on the blog. Must do that before the week is over...  You know I always end up making some mistake when I'm card making. This time, I stamped my sentiment so that there was really no way to make my circular card open up and look straight. So...I chopped the back off and ended up using a Cheerios box to make a little stand to go behind this part. I'm planning to send this off into the world and think a standing circle card will be (SHOULD BE) appreciated. :D

Here's the sketch if you want to play along:

Come Back!!

You may or may not know, but we had a technical meltdown on The Outlawz over the weekend and lost all but one of our challenge groups. We rallied together and got almost everything back in working order Sunday, but with the groups gone, none of the members who were in groups are anymore. If you're a member, please go back and join the groups again. I know it's a small hassle (I had to rejoin too!), but we can't send you group messages or let you know about the new challenges if you don't. If you aren't already a member of The Outlawz, why the heck not?? You read my blog, so you know there are always prizes. You like prizes, right? We have an anything goes challenge every Thursday if you don't like any of the other challenges - not that I see that happening if you like making cards and stuff, but still... Get on over! NO, NO, NO! You have my permission :D to go to The Outlawz after you finish reading this post. Got it? AF-TER...

Since I know you're rushing, I will too. This card is for this week's Sketch Challenge, and the image is from our prize sponsor, The East Wind. This stamp is one of the "Ghetto Fabulous Ashley" stamps that Unky has in her shop. These stamps are inspired by and benefit her friend Ashley who is currently battling cancer. I'm down for the cause!

Okay, on your way now!

I'm Just Going to Hit Publish... Part 3

I really haven't felt like blogging lately. I just want to post things so you can see them without me spending the time to write all about the projects. So...

Here's a lady I drew then transferred to my art journal for painting... Sorry for the glare!

I think I'll tone down the eye makeup next time!
I don't know why I just want to draw faces in my journal. I don't know about that journaling with awesome backgrounds and words only...

Washi tape border!

When I was working on a card a couple of weeks ago for a challenge at The Outlawz, I tried using my colored pencils on kraft and really liked it. I still haven't finished that card, but I did go back to the kraft+pencil combo again. I made this card for a friend a couple of days ago. The lady is from Rubbernecker and was one of the fabulous stamps I got from Cole. Thanks again, Cole!!

I'm Just Going to Hit Publish... Part 1

I really haven't felt like blogging lately. I just want to post things so you can see them without me spending the time to write all about the projects. So...

Here are some cards I made for my father recently.

This is the card I made my dad for Father's Day. The man is a Cricut cut I got from my boyfriend's mom, and the sentiment is by Avery Elle.
I must have lowered the resolution on my phone's camera again. Anyway, this card was to congratulate my father on his recent 2nd retirement! The stamps were in a free set I got in a Unity order.
