The Sisterhood of Crafters challenge is Boys to Men, make it masculine.  The theme was chosen by Terri.

For my card, I used images from the June Hero Arts safari stamp kit.  The images and sentiment could be for any age boy or man.

Paper A La Mode Challenge - Inspired by a Song


The Outlawz Paper A La Mode challenge theme this week is to create a card/project inspired by a song!

Lemon Shortbread is the sponsor.

I used an image provided by the sponsor called Surfer Girl!  The song inspiration I chose is Surfer Girl by the Beach Boys!  I created a Z-fold card using ocean papers along with the image colored using Chameleon markers.

We hope you'll share your cards/projects that are inspired by a song with us at The Paper A La Mode challenge found HERE.

Sparkles Monthly Challenge - Thinking of You or Sympathy


The Sparkles Challenge theme was chosen by Cathy, to create a Thinking of You or Sympathy card/project.

I created a CAS sympathy card by masking the sides of the layering panel with a cutout circle and sponging distress oxide inks before stamping the images.

We hope you'll share your thinking of you or sympathy cards with us at the Sparkles Monthly Challenge found HERE.

The Sisterhood of Crafters Challenge - Where in the World...


The Sisterhood of Crafters Challenge is to create a card or project showing something about the country and/or state in which you live.

By chance, I found this Greetings from Indiana stamp at CreekBank Creations while attending a craft retreat a couple months ago.  There you have it, I live in Indiana, the state bird is the Cardinal, the state flower is the Peony.  The stamp was inked using Memento Black ink, the Cardinal was die cut from a Tim Holtz die and colored using chameleon markers.  The background was stamped using the Penny Black Peony stamp, and the little "peony" was created using circle punches!  (I really like the way my card turned out!)

We hope you'll create and share a little something with us about where you live.  You can find The Sisterhood of Crafters Challenge HERE.
