Outlawz Challenge – Color Me Something Cuddly!

It’s Friday the 13th today, and I have some exciting news to share!  I have been asked to join the talented Design Team ladies on the The Outlawz Challenges site.  I will be part of the Copics/Promarkers team.  If you haven’t heard or visited our site, please drop by, we have challenges for each day of the week, but with different themes, and wonderful prizes.  Hope to see you there!

The challenge for the Copic/Promarkers is to create something “Warm and Cuddly”, and you must use Copics or Promarkers.


This gorgeous digital image is from TeddyBo, and it’s called Teddy Bea.  I just found this site, and love all her images, such beautiful work!

I love to make easel cards, and when I found a tutorial for a twisted easel card on YouTube, I just had to try it! It’s very easy, and I love the twisty part.

The image was colored with Copics.  The designer paper is  from the Kioshi Paper Pad by Basic Grey, and Sweet Fairy paper pad.  The flowers are from Prima, and the heart border punch is by Martha Stewart.  The sentiment was a freebie from Create With TLC.
