Merry Christmas, everyone!  Even though it is Christmas, it is still Thursday, so that means that a new Twisted Thursday challenge is beginning today at the Outlawz!   This will give you a chance to try out all the new goodies you got for Christmas!   The challenge is the usual...Anything Goes...with the twist being...Anything Goes!  So...Anything Goes...whatever you make, enter it and show us what you have made!
I used this image from Anne's Digital Art.  I thought she looked like she was heading out to a fancy New Year's party.  I colored her with Copic Pens, then added some Stickles for sparkle, then layered the image on glitter paper.
A close up of the image and background.
Inside I added some glasses of champagne and a Happy New Year sentiment, with some glitter stars and a border at the bottom.

Our sponsor this month is Anne's Digital Art.   Be sure to visit to Anne to get some great digis!
Thanks for stopping by this week!
Merry Christmas!

The Outlawz is currently running their very first Progressive Challenge!   You still have time to get in on the fun.   Go to the Outlawz, click on the Progressive Challenge tab under challenges and follow the directions to get the first Freebie.   Enter the first time and you will automatically receive the next month's image for free!  This month the sponsor was Simply Betty and she supplied us with this adorable image called Tangled Wednesday!
I colored her with Copic Pens, added some Stickles for sparkle, then added some Dazzle stars and sentiment.  It is hard to see, but the background layer is holographic paper.   I didn't have any holographic paper, so I went to the Dollar Store and bought a gift bag and cut it up!  A large gift bag gives you a lot of surface area to use.   Just carefully take the bag apart , and lay it flat and cut out what ever you need!  This was a gold holographic bag.

I used the paper on the inside and I even punched the snowflakes out of the holographic paper.   
The rest of the Dazzle sentiment is on the inside!
I hope you get a chance to join the Progressive Freebie challenge at the Outlawz!
Thanks for stopping by!

I have a new card to share today.  Deedee's Digis has their Progressive Challenge running and this month the image is another adorable set that can be used so many ways.
In the set, you get a girl bear skating and a boy bear skating!   I decided to use both.  I colored them with Prismacolor pencils.   I added Goosebumps texturizing spray that gave texture to the image, almost like tiny snowflakes.   It doesn't show in the photos, however.  I also added some punched out snowflakes and a snowflake border.

Inside is almost the same, but at the bottom I added one of the sentiments that came with the set.  This is such a fun image and can be used in so many ways!  
I hope you find time to get over to Deedee's and join the challenge!
Thanks for stopping by!
Merry Christmas!

I used this adorable image of Freddy the Frog skiing!  I made another Shaker Card this week, because it seems like snow and shaker cards just go together!

Inside I usually use the cut out part of the front of the card!  I added a simple Winter Greeting to welcome the beginning of winter!

Its Thursday and the new Twisted Thursday challenge at the Outlawz is up and running!  The challenge is as always, "Anything Goes...with the Twist being...Fun In The Snow"!
I used this fun image from Anne's Digital Art.   I colored it with Copic Pens, and added some sparkly embellishments to make the snow sparkle.  I also used Aleene's Snow Glitter to make the furry parts of the snowsuit.   It gives lots of texture.

Close-up of the texture.

Inside, is a simple sentiment cut using a SB Die!

December is upon us and I am sure everyone is super busy!  It is Thursday, though, so that means that there is a new challenge up and running at the Twisted Thursday challenge over at the Outlawz!  This week's theme is "Anything Goes...with the twist being...Christmas Magic"!  We'd love to see some of your awesome Christmas cards that you have made this holiday season!
Our awesome sponsor this month is:

Be sure to check out all the wonderful images available at Anne's Digital Art!

I used this sleigh image to make a Shaker Card.   I colored the image with Copic Pens, then made a frame to hold the acetate paper used to form the shaker card.  I added some embellishments to the front of the card and added some glitter for the snow.

Close-up of the glitter used for the snow.

 I used some die cuts to make it look snowy on the inside, too!
I hope you have time to join us at the Twisted Thursday Challenge this week!
Take a few minutes to visit Anne's Digital Art, to see some beautiful images!
