Tuesday colour at The Outlaws

Good morning everyone,
Today is Thursday a holiday in South Africa...National Women's day. Good wishes to women all over the world.  I had this post all ready on Tuesday afternoon and was about to publish when our power went off. It finally came back on last night 26hrs. later....so it is a bit late.

Good afternoon friends,
First Colour challenge for August at The Outlawz and during this month our challenges with a twist are called "Awfully Hot" August challenges......well today here all over South Africa it is awfully COLD. We are having snow in almost all our provinces even here in the Johannesburg area, that very seldom sees snow...OK we didn't have much, but not far from us they were able to play and make some snow balls but our max. temp. outside my backdoor was 4deg...now I think that's cold.. I guess in a few days it will earm up and then our thoughts will turn to the coming spring.

About the challenge. This week Roxann chose the colour pallette and inspirational photo.....with the twist to add beads.




Our sponsor for this month is the Stamping Boutique
http://www.thestampingboutique.com/imgs/tsb-logo.jpg

 and the prize will be the digital images that our DT are using during the month.

Now onto my card


My background is an embossing folder, run through the Cuttlebug. I coloured it with Distress inks.
The bicycle is a Marianne Design die, and I added some 3D flowers to the basket.
The sentiment is a local one, cut with an X-cut die.
The beads for my twist are all the centres of the flowers.

I hope you will pop over to have a look at the corgeous cards made by the DT members and look forward to seeing what you come up with.

I am entering the following challenges.
Dream Valley challenge #38...Die cuts and punches
Nutcrafters challenge #24...Embossed backgrounds
Deep Ocean challenge #31...Anything goes
Unstampabelles #14...Paper flowers
Whoopsi Daisy challenge..Punches or Dies
Craft a scene challenge..Anything in the great outdoors
No Matter which challenge #1..Anything goes
Come and get it challenge..Adult birthday

That's all from me today...take care and keep warm if you are in the cold..see you soon

Like the flowers in the bike basket. I cannot ride a regular bike but can ride a tandem bike like hubby & I have. Look forward to Autumn when it is cooler to be able to bike ride. Temps here have been 100+ with some as highs of 105.

Good morning as Ursula,

What a very effective scene you have created, my mind I can imagine whoever arrived on that bike is lazing on the grass having a picnic.

It's lovely to see you at Craft a Scene challenge this month.

Such a beautiful card Ursula! I am so happy that your power was restored...I know what that's like and all I can say is keep the freezer closed at all times. I learned that the hard way during the famous North American black out a few years back. We had to cook everything we had and refreeze it all when it was restored 3 days later!
