The Outlawz Crash your Stash Challenge: Googlie Eyes


The best of healers is good cheer. ~Pindar
Good morning!

I am a bit behind posting this but a new “Crash your Stash” challenge started at The Outlawz Challenges

The purpose of this Challenge is to encourage you to use those items that are no longer trending and probably stashed away in a drawer. Forgotten and alone. So, we are here to help inspire you to dig those lovely items out and bring them new life!
At the start of the challenge, we will tell you what item we want you to pull from your stash and use and you will have a whole month to find, dust off and create something lovely with the item! That simple!  
And to make it better, We Are 3 Digital Shop is generously sponsoring us so everyone month, someone will win a lovely prize! 
Our item for this month is Googlie eyes and I created a get well card using one of the sentiments from the prize packet this month!


Supplies: A2 card
  • Sentiment from We Are 3 Digital Sentiments – Eyes printed on Stampin Up Whisper White card stock
  • Acrylic sheet scrap for window
  • Design paper “Green Damask” from Echo Park
  • Googlie eyes and beads from stash
  • India ink from Memories
  • Mason jar stamp & die set from Momenta 


Thanks for stopping by and don’t forget to stop by The Outlawz Challenges where there is a challenge for every day of the week!

The Outlawz Challenges: Purple plus two colors

Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around. -- Leo Buscaglia

Hi everyone! Today I am sharing my card for the new color challenge which is currently running at The Outlawz Challenges and sponsored this month by Polkadoodles

Our challenge this week is a pretty picture from Sharon with the challenge to use purple and pick two more colors from the picture.

For my card I am using a pre-colored image called Poppy with phone. The colors I picked to go along with purple are pink and white.

The Outlawz Sunday Song & Rhyme: The Butterfly


When, within our souls and psyches we are made aware of a safe but insistent drum beat, repeated like butterfly wings in motion, we sense the message...that our inner self has begun its search for freedom. --  Mary Meeker 

Hi everyone! Today I am sharing my card for the new Sunday Song & Rhyme challenge which is currently running at The Outlawz Challenges through June 1st

Our sponsor this month is Anne's Digital Art
Prize: 5 Images

Our challenge this fortnight is to find inspiration in any of the lyrics/words to the Song or Rhyme:
The Butterfly by Heather ReneƩ Adamkiewicz

As love falls down from the sky, It lands on the wings of a butterfly.
The butterfly sings its songs and rhymes, and flies through the air, no concept of time.
It is the messenger of patience and change, from flower to flower, it's odd and it's strange.
The butterfly can transform its world.
And give way to new beginnings, unfurled, it is the keeper of transformation, and flies on faith and imagination.
The butterfly as no fear of change, it bravely escapes its homemade cage.
To change, it knows is necessary, for all the burdens we need not carry.
The butterfly soars, and merrily sings, For, without change, it could never grow wings.


Supplies:
  • Black Embossing powder from Stampin Up!
  • Canson cold press water color paper
  • Cardstock from The Paper Studio (Base) and Stampin Up!
  • Faber-Castel gel crayons
  • India Ink from Memories
  • Sentiment from Unity Stamp Company
  • Swallowtail Butterfly from Stampin Up!
