New Challenge Cards for Outlawz

These card challenges are good for me. If nothing else, it makes me go out to the studio and do something. So far, I think the challenges have been easy. And ususally, as long as I'm out there, I make two or three more things as well. I'm in the mood to do a mini-album or decorated a set of boxes or something. Halloween is just around the corner, so maybe I'll turn my attention to that collection of materials. Having them all together makes that easy to do. Anyway, here are some cards that I've done for the Outlawz challenges lately. (By the way, I was chosen as one of the July winners! I am supposed to receive a paper pack, but haven't yet. Before you congratulate me on my win, I should probably mention it was a random drawing. (snicker)

The top two cards were "lifted" from back issues of Paper Crafts magazine. The wings on the owl were made using layers of scalloped strips with the edges curled up slightly for dimention. The bottom right was a transparency and color challenge. There is a sympathy message on the transparency. The goofy penguin was a challenge requiring the use of a bird. {He looked cuter in my mind!}

This last card features one of the cards from the memory game I featured a few posts ago. I made the card for my friend who was going on a cruise. It just happened to fit the "banner challenge" on Outlawz, too!

Well, now that July (and August) is almost officially over, I'll give this blog a more appropriate background. Hope you like it - and thanks for dropping by!
