The Outlawz Friday Coloring "Drinks/Bartender Appreciation Day" Challenge /Nicole's Birthday Card

Hey, this challenge is right up my alley. And right up Nicole's alley, too! Hers even more than mine, since she is a sommelier! So I found the perfect image for her, and voila, instant card! Have a great weekend!

Oh, just kidding. I intend to say more than that. Like how our wonderful sponsor this month is a new one for us: Ppinkydolls. If you have never heard of these images, you are in for a real treat when you go to check them out! They are fabulous! And our randomly-selected participant this month will receive a prize of three digis! Lucky you, whomever you are! Be sure to play along this month. You just need to color an image with any coloring medium you wish for your project!

One sad note for our DT: Dawn needed to step down from her DT duties. She has moved back to the UK and now has a position with Cambridge University. She has so much involved with her new career that she will be unable to find crafting time for a while. We are going to miss her so very much; she has been on this team for a long time, and is such a talented designer. Bummer for us...

One other note I want to make. Gary and I are checking out lighting for our backyard. Apparently it is going to cost a small fortune. Drat! On the upside, the yard will look so dramatic at night. All the palms will be accented with lighting and the shadows will fall on our block wall. Too pretty it will be. Excited for it, I am! (Yes, yes, that is my Yoda imitation. Weak, huh.) Will have to take some photos after it is finished.

This week I am using Jellypark Dressed Up And Ready To Go Out, which I think perfectly fits the challenge. I printed this cutie on X-Press It BC and colored her with my Copics:

Skin: E000, E00, E21, E11, E04, R20
Hair: E30, YR31, E33, E35
Dress: BG45, BG49
Jewelry/Purse/Shoes/Wine: YR20, YR21, YR23, YR24, YR27

For confetti, I added some die cuts made with Memory Box Party Glasses, and my Create with TLC sentiment was die-cut with Spellbinders Labels 4. Fairly CAS for me, huh? Guess that's what happens during a week that has been so busy.

I am now working on a birthday card for my great-nephew, Tristan. Had a holiday party last night. We're going out to dinner tonight. Tristan's birthday party is tomorrow. And we have a Cardinals (gasp) game on Sunday. What a whirlwind! Hope your weekend is fun, but not so crazy!!

Do stop by The Outlawz to check out the fab creations by my talented teammates: Carla, Kathi, and Laine! And then be sure to color something up and play along with us!

  13. What a fun card!

    I totally love the image, your fantastic coloring, the cute die-cuts (I LOVE that die), and that sentiment, which is absolutely brilliant.

    Personally, I consider wine to be one of my daily servings of fruit/vegies. If I have more than one glass, it's more than one serving! If it's red wine, it's a serving of anti-oxidants.

    Yep. Wine is good for you!
