The Outlawz Opening Day

Hello everyone! Today, one of my dreams came true, because my new Crafting Community went live!! I created a place where a different challenge is offered every day of the week! A place where you can chat away with one another, enter 7 different challenges, win prizes, and a whole lot more.  I have the most awesome DT ever who has worked hard to make this all possible!! Our community started with 17 women who needed a home to be together and so the The Outlawz was created by me. My dear friends followed me and now we are bringing our corral to you. So come on and join The Outlawz Girlz!  The eight challenges we offer are:

Sunday: Clean and Simple

Tuesday: Color

Thursday: Prisma and Other Mediums

For the first challenge at The Outlawz and it is a Birthday Card Challenge. My favorite challenge blog ever was Party Time Tuesdays, where you made a birthday card every week. For personal obligations they had to close the doors. At The Outlawz we can do it again.  The Birthday Challenge is where you must have a birthday sentiment on the front of your card along with the challenge. This week it is "ANYTHING GOES" Yehaaw our favorite kind!! So come on and visit us down at the corral!

I created an easel card using a Victoria Case image, which was exclusively created for SCACD! Her name is Little Marti! Is she not a baby doll? VC is one of my all time artist and you can see her other creations here!


So what are you waiting for you know you want to see what it's all about! See you at the corral!
