Outlawz Jan. 29th Scrapbook Challenge and a card or two

Hey peeps! How is everyone doing this fine evening? I gotta say I'm doing pretty good today :} I was just brought up to bed by my hubbie carrying me up the stairs and then ever so gently placing me on our bed. Yea, I know....TMI but it's not what you think. My back and hip were hurting me so he was nice enough to bring me upstairs so I could get some work done on the computer from the comfort of my bed :} Ahhh.......what a life indeed!

Today was good day....not too crazy.....not too busy.....not Finley had a sleepover last night and the moment her guest went home the phone rang and it was her Aunt Kathleen wanting to come and steal her for another playdate. Gotta love that! Hubby was working and I was left with Cameron. Got to work on a card and finished in under an hour!! That's unheard of for me! But I did it!

Know on to the good stuff. Over at The Outlawz we have a new challenge up for the Scrapbooking Group. The challenge is to use stitching/sewing and fabric! My two most favorite things to use on my projects! Love it! Below please see my example for the challenge. That's my Pudge (Lily) all smiles and laughs. Gotta love that little girl and I just wish she would stay a little girl forever! Tears!

I used mostly Crate Paper for this. The pink scallops in the background are actually embossed onto white fabric. I also used a touch a fabric behind the tree, on the flower and the wings on the birds, and also the banners are fabric stampes with Stamps Of Life stamps. I stitched everywhere and anywhere I could. I think it turned out quite nice don't ya think? I just love that little girl to pieces!

This card I made for the CAS challenge over at The Outlawz. Love how it turned out! I used some Fancy Pants rub-ons for the background, hearts and sentiment. Fabulous and easy! Under an hour people! It's a record for me! Just don't count on it happening again :}

This little number I also did for the CAS challenge over at The Outlawz, but for last week's challenge and the one above is for this week's. Used some Cosmo Cricket, Unity Stamp for the background of the birds, and Stamps Of Life for the birds, hearts and sentiment.

Can you believe it!? Two posts in one night! I also posted about The Moxie Fab Color Challenge before this post so be sure to check that out too. 

Hope you all have a fabulous night and a wonderful week! I'll be back soon with some more yumminess! TTFN!
