Winter fun at The Outlawz

Good morning friends,
We are definitely not having winter fun here in South Africa, but it has been rather wet in places.  Seeing all the snow in the Northern countries this weekend on TV, I think my card might be OK for that.

At The Outlawz this week the Colour challenge has called for a twist of winter fun using the inspirational photo chosen by Cara and using at least 3 of the 5 colours suggested.

Our sponsor for this month is Scrap 'n Dipity


For my card I used the blue, green and red.
I had a piece of blue patterned cardstock with snowflakes  and matted an embossed card onto it.
The embossing folder is from Cuttlebug, and I added glitter and frosting

The sentiment was printed on my PC and cut with a Nellies die.

Finished it off with a  ribbon and a heart brad.

Entering the following challenges:
Creates and Makes Challenge  #17 ...Anything goes
Cuttlebug Mania ...It's Christmastime
The Holly and The Ivy #21...Anything Christmas
Tuesday Throwdown #372... Anything goes

Thank you for visiting and have a great week. I hope all your holiday preparations are going well. 

Take care and see you soon.

Love Ursula

Another Christmas card

Hello there,

I am back again, twice in one day...WOW.
This time I have a card for the challenge at Let's Craft and Create and the theme is Anything Christmas. Please pop over and see the amazing cards made by the team...some great inspiration there.

I used an image from Beccy's Place and I so love the idea that I can use a precoloured image from
Baby Robin set

The paper is from my stash, as I am trying to use up my older papers before buying new ones.

I cut the image out with a MFD  from Nellies and also used a Nellies die for the sentiment.

Attached the image with brads and the sentiment with foam pads.

Will enter it in the following challenges:

Beccy's Place ... December challenge
Crafty Calendar...It's Christmas
Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas challenge ...Anything goes
Hiding in my Craftroom ...Christmas colours

I will end off and thank you for popping in. Take care and enjoy the preparations for the festive season.

Love Ursula

A festive card

Good morning friends,

With only 20 days to go to Christmas, it might be a good idea to make a card for this week's Colour challenge at The Outlawz. The inspirational photo from Jeanie, is just the right one for getting into the festive spirit and the team have certainly taken inspiration from it.

We have a new sponsor for the month

Scrap n Dippity are giving the winner 3 digis from their store


I am still taking the easy route for now and have used an embossing folder for my card.

The folder is from Crafts Too and I have coloured the baubles with Pan Pastel metallics, added glitter, peeloffs. stickles  for the glitz and glitter.

The sentiment is a diecut from Crealies.

Will be entering the following challenges:

Dream Valley challenges #169...Christmas
Make my Monday ...Happy Christmas
The Crazy challenge #263...Christmas is coming
AAA Cards #104... Christmas
Come and Get it ...Christmas
