The Outlawz Friday Coloring Angels Challenge

Hello, Peeps! And a very fun Friday to you all! Hope you have had a good week, and are planning on having a wonderful weekend! Today starts our Angels Challenge, since August 22 is Be An Angel Day. You can use any angel to color with your choice of coloring medium this week. We are sponsored this month by Bombshell Stamps, home to some really unusual and fun stamps. Our randomly-selected winner will win the digi set of his/her choice. So get those entries in! Quickly, like a little bunny...

I have to admit that my mojo is just barely surviving at the present time. (Happens to all of us at some point, I believe. And then, it miraculously comes back again.) I am still waiting for its wholehearted return. Anxiously, as a matter of fact, because I am really struggling to create much of anything right now. Perhaps it is just the doldrums of a long, hot summer that is affecting me. 

I chose an SCACD angel image by Carmen Medlin, called Winter Guardian, for my card this week. I decided to use the angel theme to create another Christmas card, as I am in sore need of them for this year. I printed my angel on X-Press It BC, and colored her with my Copics:
Skin: E000, E00, E21, E11, E04, R20
Hair: E50, E53, E43, E57
Wings/Dress: YG13, YG17, BG11, BG13, BG15, BG18

I added a bit of Glossy Accents to the globe, which I did color, but forgot to write down the Copics used--sorry! I chose DP from the Jillibean Soup Winter Tortellini & Spinach Soup collection, Zutterized it, and paired it with Stampin' Up CS. 

Lo and behold, I added some die cuts. I realize this is a tremendous shock to you all. I apologize for that. (Snort.) I used the following dies: Whimsy Ticket, Memory Box Country House, Cheery Lynn Atlas, and Cheery Lynn Dutch Doily Rectangle Frame. My sentiment is from the Whimsy Holiday Ticket Sentiments set. And that's it for this week's card.

We are hosting a Fantasy Football draft here tomorrow. I am not in the league--as I promised, I am not in any Fantasy Football leagues this year--too much stress for this old lady! But the party tomorrow should be fun. And then we are headed to the Arizona Cardinals game on Sunday. Can hardly wait for that!!! Hope your plans are exciting to you, too!

Do stop by and check out the beautiful creations by my talented teammates: Carla, Dawn, and Kathi! And then play along with us this week! Looking forward to what you create!

Have a great weekend!
