{7.4.2012} i’m an outlaw…

Howdy Friends Have you heard of The Outlawz Challenges?  It is a fabulous community of crafters and fun CHALLENGES.  They have a new challenge EVERYDAY.  I’m excited to be guest designing for the month of July for the Sunday CAS (clean and Simple) challenges.  Perfect fit don’t you think?  I love a good CAS challenge. This week’s challenge is all about STARS! I ♥ stars. Did I mention I love stars???  Heehee.  The stars are a combination of punches and patterned paper.  The little ones around the sentiment where trimmed out of the same paper in the strip on the …

Yes, Friday! Oh happy day my Friends with Flair Unity peeps.  I’ve been waiting for Friday all week!  Hee hee.  I sure wish the holiday (July 4th) landed on Monday for a long weekend.  Oh well, guess I’ll just have to take Monday and Tuesday off to make it so.  Ha.  Yippee, a SUPER looooooong weekend!!! Isn’t the current Unity Stamp of the Week darling!  Those paper lanterns remind me of summer parties.  It is super hot here in Arizona and the best time to be outside is at night since it MAY get down to 100 degrees or less if …

My dear friends I have really procrastinated on this post.  I always have good intentions and then time gets in the way.  Before I know it, over 2 months have passed since I have received most of these cards.  Geez.  It is about time I share them. My sweet friend Lindsey sent this thank you card after she won my Facebook giveaway.  BTW, I’ve learned since then that it is ‘illegal’ to have FB giveaways.  Good thing they didn’t find me.  Ha.  I adore this card for so many reasons… the colors, the simplicity and all the white space.  Plus, …

{5.23.2012} pinwheels are so fun…

Wheeeeeeee. My card today has motion!  These little pinwheels wobble like they are ‘spinning’.  Too cool right?  I’ve used an action wobble in one of my previous cards HERE.  But, being the thrifty girl that I am, I figured I could make one myself. Wrapping some thin jewlery wire around a paper piercer turns it into a little spring.  Attach both ends of the spring using foam adhesive to your moving object and to a small scrap of paper and like magic, we have our own handmade wobbler. It is not easy to catch the ‘action’ with a photo, but …
