 This month's theme is "Round, round, round.  Think circles, anything round.  

Wonderful Sponsor

I chose  Head Stand for my card.  Had so much fund making this card, I made half a dozen.  Often wonder about colouring snowmen, so for each of these cards, I chose to use the colour of the background.

Happy Birthday

 Recently I found an FB page concentrating on using scraps of paper.  Now I have found the perfect monthly challenge to compliment the page.

The Outlawz No Stamp Challenge, time to start creating.

For this card I have used diecuts and scraps of paper.  All the paper used is doubled sided patterned paper from Stampin up.

Love Birds

 The sponsor of the Outlawz Progressive Freebie Challenge for March is Sheepski Designs, called Love Birds.  I digitally coloured the back ground, layered it onto a card base, then added some heart ribbon and paper flowers.  I was thinking of an Engagement card when I made this one.

Snail Mail Border

Having so much fun lately, I have found a FB page called "Use those Scrap Papers and I am getting so many ideas.  This card was made for a weekly challenge, this one called "Mail Letter Border"

Check out Face Book, you just may get some great ideas. The background paper I found in my stash, just the right size.  The envelopes was a graphic I printed on different coloured cardstock.  I printed a few extra, so they will turn up on future cards.

Outlawz Twisted Thursday - AG, with same old stuff (background paper would be 5+ years old and the envelope cardstock, dare I say, goes back about 15 years)  Am I a Hoarder????

Pretty Flowers

This month at The Outlawz Progressive Freebie challenge, we received a pretty flower image from Sandra.

I printed the image 3 times, but only coloured one of the copies with copic pens, adding some liquid pearls and glitter.  Fussy cut all three images and glued them together to make an element, rubber stamped the sentiment and to finish off the card, using copics I coloured parts of a ribbon.
