Friday Coloring Challenge - The Outlawz

Good morning!  Happy Friday!  I hope you have had a great week and you have something fun planned for the weekend.  I've got a very busy weekend in store, so I am hoping the weather cooperates.  I am popping in this morning with my DT card for this week's Friday Coloring Challenge at The Outlawz site.  The theme this week is a "color inspiration".  You don't have to match the colors exactly, but we want to be able to recognize the general color palette we've shared.  As always, you must have a hand-colored image somewhere on your project to enter.

Here is the color inspiration photo:


And here is my card:


My card base and mats are SU Blue Bayou and the patterned papers are from the My Mind's Eye Indie Chic "Citron" 6x6 pad.  The beautiful image is Aurora "Maui Maui" by The East Wind from Sweet Pea Stamps.  I colored her with my Copics.  I added a few Wild Orchid Crafts flowers to finish my card.

Good morning!  Happy Friday!  Hope you've had a great week and you have something fun planned for the weekend!  It has finally gotten a tiny bit cooler here, so it might be possible to be outside!  Sure hope so.  I am tired of being stuck in the air conditioning.  I am here this morning with my DT post for this week's Friday Coloring Challenge at The Outlawz.  The theme this week is "at the beach".  Anything beach-related will do, but you must have a hand-colored image somewhere on your project to enter.

Here is my card:


My card base and mats are SU Kiwi Kiss and the patterned papers are from the Echo Park Summer Bliss 6x6 pad.  The beautiful image is Little Seahorse by Holly Durr from Sweet Pea Stamps.  I colored it with my Copics and added some Ice White Pearl Pen accents.  The sentiment is from Create With TLC.  A satin bow and button finished my card.

Friday Coloring Challenge - The Outlawz

Hi again!  I'm back, as promised, with my DT post for this week's Friday Coloring Challenge at The Outlawz site.  Our theme for this final week of the month is, as always, "anything goes" with the option to add a Christmas twist.  The twist is entirely optional, but you must have a hand-colored image somewhere on your project to enter.

Here is my card:


My card base and mats are SU Basic Black and the pretty holiday patterned paper is from the Simple Stories DIY Christmas 6x6 pad.  The fun image is Christmas Quartet by Regan Kubecek from Sweet Pea Stamps.  I colored it all with my Copics.  I added a bit of Red and Gold Stickles to the stars and ornaments on the tree.  The sentiment is from Create With TLC.  I didn't add any other embellishments.  I wanted to let the scene take center stage and I also wanted to keep this flat for easy mailing when the time comes.

Here is a closer view of the colored image:


Thanks for stopping by!  Be sure to visit the Friday Coloring Challenge and check out the beautiful projects that my teammies created!  We hope you will play along!  It's the last week this month to get in on the chance for the awesome prize offered by our wonderful sponsor, Sweet Pea Stamps.  The winner will get to choose their favorite three digis from the Sweet Pea Stamps online store.  Don't miss out!

Little Miss Muffet - Special Post

Good morning!  Happy Friday!  Hope you had a great week and you have fun plans for the weekend! We are still having very hot and humid weather here, so most of the weekend's activities will likely be indoors in the AC!  I am here this morning with a very special post.  Today the Little Misses are coming together to support a very special young lady. Cassandra is the 11-year-old daughter of Barbara, owner of, and illustrator for, Little Miss Muffet Stamps.   Barbara has shared about Cassandra on the Little Miss Muffet blog today, so be sure to stop by to read her touching story.

Cassandra was born deaf.  She currently attends public school, but because of her diminished hearing, she often has difficulty understanding everything that is going on around her in a busy classroom.  Cassandra has asked for the school to provide her with real-time captioning (RTC).  RTC is where a captionist would type what is spoken in class and display it on a tablet so Cassandra could read the information she may have missed.  Without it, she struggles every day to try and guess at the meaning of half-heard words and sentences.  So far, she has been denied access to this valuable resource.

Our special event today is to raise awareness and spread the word about Cassandra's request.  You can read more about her story HERE and you can also sign the petition to grant her access to RTC HERE.  For each signature on the petition, the school administrators receive an e-mail regarding the request.  We want to help Barbara fill their inboxes!

To support the petition and Cassandra, Little Miss Muffet Stamps has released a dozen new images.  One of these images, Polka Dot Pals Rosalie, will be available as a freebie in the Little Miss Muffet store.  You won't want to miss out on that! Most importantly, we want to spread the word and get lots of support for Cassandra! We hope you can help.

Now for my card for Cassandra:


My card base and mats are SU Rose Red and the patterned papers are from the Webster's Pages Plum Seed collection.  The adorable new image is Jr. Hatter Millie.  I have colored her with my Copics. The sentiment is from Create With TLC.  The banner was created with the Party Banner Metal Die from Little Miss Muffet Stamps.  A couple of wooden butterflies and a Wild Orchid Crafts daisy finished my card.

Here is a close-up of the colored image:


Thanks for stopping by!  Be sure to visit the Little Miss Muffet blog and read all about Cassandra and check out the gorgeous projects from the rest of the Little Misses!  Don't forget to pop over to the store and pick up your freebie and most importantly, please sign the petition to help Cassandra get RTC.

One last thing, if you wish to send words of support and encouragement directly to Cassandra, you can send to this address:

CART for Cassandra
P.O. Box 163462
Fort Worth, TX 76161-3462

Have a great day!  I will be back a little later with my card for this week's Friday Coloring Challenge.
