Jammin' January at The Outlawz Tuesday Colour Challenge - Week 5


This week at the Outlawz Tuesday Color Challenge, the lovely Roxann is our host and she is challenging us to use the following soft color combo: Yellow, Light Grey and Dark Grey. This week the Jammin' January Twist is "Add fabric".


It is Winter in Canada and also time for colds, flus and other Winter related illnesses.  I always ran out of Get Well cards this time of year. I used my Rainy Day Bear to make this one. The fabric twist was a real twist for me. I had to pull out all my craft supplies to finally find these shiny fabric stars I bought at the Dollarama years ago. What a relief!! I just hope this little card will cheer up its recipient.

Jammin' January at The Outlawz Tuesday Colour Challenge - Week 4


This week at the Outlawz Tuesday Color Challenge, the lovely Sara is our host and she is challenging us to use the following soft color combo: Peach, Green and Cream. This week the Jammin' January Twist is "Add roses".


I couldn't wait to start using my bear images for my cards. I had such a good time drawing them; I just wanted to see how easy they are to color and how they can embellish any cards. When I saw Sara's color combo, I thought right away to make a baby card. I wanted it soft and cuddly. I used Baby Bear and added some little roses for the twist. I really love this color combo, it's simply beautiful and I know I will use it again soon.

Winter Wonderland Color Challenge at GI

A new year has started... New beginnings! New adventures!! I am so happy GI's challenges are back and  to be able to host the first one this year. I decided to challenge you to make a project with the following Winter colors.


I visited with my mom and dad over the Christmas holidays and I got to see some snow. We haven't had much in T.O. so it was nice to see everything covered in white. While I visited with them, I got to draw new images. One afternoon, as I was lying on my childhood bed and trying to come up with some new images; I noticed my old bear sitting on a shelf. I liked that little bear, but did not play much with him because I was never really interested in dolls and teddy bears while growing up (cars and trucks interested me more, lol!). So, I decided to make a series of images with teddy bears of all sorts. For this project, I decided to use Winter Bear who is all wrapped up for a cold winter day... perfect for this challenge.


I kind of put the snow globe together without any patterns. I like it! I hope I will remember how to do it again. The inside is hard to read. It says:

Sending you a good Canadian winter wish for your birthday
May your day be refreshing like a cold Northern wind and
heartwarming like a delicious hot chocolate after a day
playing in the snow.
Happy Birthday



The challenge starts today and ends at 10:00pm on February 2nd. A random winner will be selected and will win a $10 gift certificate from Guylou's Online Store, a one year online subscription to Through the Craftroom Door magazine and an opportunity to be a Guest Designer on one of our upcoming challenges.


Please take a moment to go see what my fellow DT members did for this challenge at Guylou's Inimitability. What a bunch of talented ladies!!!

Jammin' January at The Outlawz Tuesday Colour Challenge - Week 2

The color combo is  : BlackLime Sherbet and Tangerine.  This week the Jammin' January Twist is "Add feathers".
