MONDAYS GREETINGS CHALLENGE - BE THANKFUL - GCC102317

Hello my crafty Peeps,


I hope you all have had a wonderful weekend. Mine was good and hectic in different ways. Saturday I went to see an apartment then the little man had birthday party to attend, and then laundry. Sunday was a be-at-home-day almost. I had to help my mother getting some winter tires out from the storage.


Anyways, enough of my weekend and on to this weeks challenge. As I mentioned in my last entry here on the blog the Monday Greetings Group has been divided into two groups so I will only post every other week, and I think it is great. You don't have to stress and get cards done on a weekly basis and you can take a short break in between.


This weeks sponsor is the awesome QKR Stampede and I choose to use the image Hanging. I did the image pretty fast but I was struggling to get a good sentiment to use with the stamp. Finally I figured out one that I think is a good one and suitable for the occasion. I hope to see your creation this week on this challenge.


Anyways, until then .......................................................................... Craft on !!!!








If you are like me to be ahead in doing things here are the upcoming challenges:


  • OCT 30 - Creepy Nite Greetings
  • NOV 6 - Include an Animal
  • NOV 13 - Happy Holidays
  • NOV 20 - A Winter holiday or Snow

Monday Greetings -WOW White On White GCC100917

Hello my Crafty Peeps,

Sorry for being MIA Missing In Action, I have had to much in my life to spend the time blogging. I hope you can forgive me that I have been slow in the posting of the weekly challenges we have at The Outlawz.

The Monday Greetings group that I am in have decided to split the group and so we only need to do cards every other week which is such a blessing. I started to feel a little overwhelmed with doing cards every week and was struggled with getting the time to get the cards ready in time. I hate to be stressing and not be able to think thru what I want to do with the cards.

Anyways, I will try to be better at the whole blogging thing again.
This weeks sponsor is Bugaboo Stamps and I choose the lovely image called Angel Autism, and our theme this week is WOW - White On White

I choose this little Angel since I just recently found out that my own son has ADHD. We can all be different in many ways, some may find the life a little harder than other and that is what me and my son now has to challenge together. We have to figure out how we can live with his super powers and have a life without anger and outburst.

Anyways, this was a challenge to me since I have to use just white on white but I hope I pulled it together quiet good anyways. So I hope that you will join us for this weeks challenge and show us your cards this week.

Until next time my crafty peeps, ................................. Craft on!!!


If you wish to work ahead, here is a 4 week list of our upcoming challenges:
  • OCT 16 - Get inspired from your favorite actor/actress or singer
  • OCT 23 - Be Thankful
  • OCT 30 - Creepy Nite Greetings
  • NOV 6 - Include an Animal

Yesterday I was actually working there when they had a wedding and it was the restaurant manager that has been working there for several years, who is also my next building neighbor so it was fun but I worked from 1 pm to 3:30 am so it was a long shift but I loved every minute of it.

Anyways, of to our new week with Monday Greetings Challenge. This weeks sponsor is our talented QKR Stampede and the image I chose is Smiling Snail and this weeks theme: Summer Relaxation

I do had some trouble getting the colors the way that I saw them in my head but I am quite pleased with the outcome. I do hope you will join in on our weeks challenge and let me get inspired of your Summer Relaxation.

Until next time .................................... Craft on!

Monday Greetings Challenge GCC030617, Spring or Easter

Hello my Crafty Peeps,


Last week I was off due to a death in the family that caused me to travel out of town very unexpectedly.


Anyways, this weeks theme is Spring or Easter and our sponsor this week is Eureka.


When I start to think about Spring it's mostly that you start to be outside more during the day and may go to a playground and go on a swing, go and pick the wild spring flowers.
I chose to use the image Swinging, it reminds me of the first swings you do when Spring comes around.


I will make this post a short one and I do hope that you will enter this challenge as well over at Monday Greetings at The Oulawz.


Anyways, until next time .......................................... Craft on.




Upcoming Challenges

March 13th - Wearin' of the Green - use shamrocks or Irish sentiments

Monday Greetings Challenge - Music to my Ears

Hello my crafty peeps,

This last week has been challenge for me. My little man has been home sick, and on Friday I started to feeling cold and all Saturday I spent in bed. Then on Sunday my oldest son came home and he had been throwing up since early hour. We had gotten the lovely Winterflu so we have all been couch potatoes so to speak.

Anyways, I had started colored my image early in the week so I would have it done before the challenge needed to get posted, but boy was I was wrong. I had to sit and finish the card on Sunday so it would be finished for the posting. I decided to a very simple and clean card.

I managed to finish it in time and below you will see my take on this weeks challenge. This weeks sponsor is our talented Polkadoodles and I chose to use Serenity Stardust.

Until next time ..................................................... Craft on !!!
Ps. Happy <3 Valentine's day to you all.

Monday Greetings - Family Gathering - GCC111416

Hello Crafty Peeps,

I have not been blogging in awhile and I do have to apologize for that.
I will start with the Monday Greetings after the last one.

Family Gathering was the theme for this weeks challenge. Since my boys recently got their room redone I bought them a playstation 3 console and we redid the cozy corner to a gaming corner with tv and their playstation. I thought of me playing with my boys while coloring this image. Since my oldest turned 10th it was the best card to give him.
Sponsor for this week: Dr Digi's and the image is called Player Two

Until next time....................... craft on.
