Tuesday Color Challenge at the Outlawz

Not only is it Tuesday again, but already the last Tuesday in June. Unbelievable how time flies the older I get. Part of that I suspect is the fact that every Monday I wish for Friday!  LOL, I wish my life away one week at a time!!   Anyways, it is time for another color challenge at the Outlawz.  Our color challenge this week is brought to us by Jenn.   red,white & yellow June Jolt: add fabric( felt, fabric flowers, burlap, etc.) 
And the inspiration photo.


You know our pastor has been talking about using your "gifts" and I have been wanting to start using this gift and making cards that I can donate to the Church that can be given out when a card is needed.  I think I told you how when I had surgery 5 women brought us meals.  It was an amazing ministry.  And where it is hard for me to make meals because I work so much I thought this was something I could do.  That being said, I went looking for Scripture or encouraging stamps and this is the one I found.  So this is a start to my stash!  
What a fabulous verse is that?  I know I will use this stamp a lot.  I also used Tim Holtz bird and cut it out with Kraft paper.  The buttons are a sizzix die cut as well.  I just used a little red twine in the center.  And the felt is cut out with my nestie and is stitched around the edges, though it is hard to see in the picture.  I also stitched the edges with my sewing machine. 
Now, I want you to take some time to check out the main page on the Outlawz.  Do you see that Oozak is sponsoring us again with a $50 gift card.  I want to win that!!  But I can't so I want you to!!  I get all my Copics from there!   All you need to do is head on over and play in at least one challenge!!
Now, do you like to create with Digi's?  We have some fabulous artists at the Outlawz that have started a Freebies page.   You should check out the talent of Anne and Sandi.  They are so talented!  
Now I just want to remind you that the Color Challenge this month is being sponsored by Delicious Doodles.  They have some amazing digital images to choose from.
