Alcohol Marker Challenge - The Outlawz

Good morning!  Happy Friday!  Hope you've had a good week and you've got some fun plans for the weekend!  It has finally stopped raining here, at least for awhile.  It didn't rain at all yesterday and the sun is shining this morning!  I was beginning to think we would need a boat to get around!  Anyway, before I get on with my day, I am here to post my DT card for this week's Alcohol Marker Challenge at The Outlawz site.  Given that it is the last Friday of the month, our theme is the ever popular, "anything goes" and as always, we offer the Christmas twist to those who would like to add a Christmas card to their stash.  It's completely optional to do so.  The only requirement is that you have coloring with alcohol markers (any brand) on your project.

Here is my card:

My card base and mats are SU Baja Breeze and the patterned papers, top and bottom, are from the My Mind's Eye All Is Bright 6x6 pad.  My adorable image is Three Little Angels from Lili of The Valley.  It was one of the wonderful goodies in the fabulous blog candy I won from my DT sister, Tress.  Isn't it precious?  I stamped it on MiC Blending Card with Memento Tuxedo Black and colored it with my Copics.  I added Star Dust Stickles to the clouds, Golden Rod Stickles to the star garlands in their hair and Diamond Stickles to their little wings.  Some wide lace and three Imaginisce chipboard alpha stickers, spelling out JOY, finished my card.  Another flat design for easy mailing!

Here is a close-up of the image:

Thanks for stopping by!  Be sure to visit the Alcohol Markers Challenge and check out the gorgeous creations from the rest of the DT!  We hope you will be inspired to play along!  It's your last chance to get in on the draw for a terrific prize from our July sponsor, Bombshell Stamps.  There are also lots of  fantastic site-wide prizes up for grabs when you enter the challenges at The Outlawz!

I am entering my card in the following challenges:
Friday Sketch Challenge #48 (sketch by Carole, which I flipped one turn to accommodate my image)
Divas by Design (anything goes)
Crafting For All Seasons #57 (Christmas in July)

Here is FSC-48:

Have a wonderful day and see you soon!

    We are in our monsoon season--big UGH! So we get rain dumped on us. Luckily the lakes in my yard were finally absorbed before the next storm hit us. The humidity is making it so hard to breathe here--we're used to 10% and it's now 55% and 91 degrees on its way to 101. So glad I am inside in the a/c!!!
