A week of partying...all in one day!!!

Well, as mentioned a few posts below....there's a party going on at Outlaws this week!!!  Lots of great prizes and good stuff happening!!! Make sure you come over and check it out.  The challenges were the regular weekly challenges ...but this week, there's a WESTERN element to most of them!!!  Hence the reason for the following:

Okay - so Sunday's challenge is always a CAS (Clean and Simple) challenge.  This week there was a photo challenge as well for inspiration.  I am too late getting this one in as I just realized it ended a couple hours ago - but oh well....I'll submit it anyway even though I won't was still fun anyway!!  Here is my entry:
Monday's challenge was a birthday card with a western theme.  Here's my take on this one:

Tuesday was a color challenge - with a western theme of course.  The colors chosen could be found in a standard red bandana. 

I pulled from that ....and got this:

Wednesday's challenge was the usual sketch challenge - but this week you needed to have a western theme!!  Here's the sketch and my take on it:
Thursday's challenge was the usual - NO COPICS - you have to use another medium to color your image.  Well, I decided to break out my watercolor pencils that I bought EONS ago from Stampin Up!   I've actually NEVER used them and I've had them for the better part of three years!! UGH!!! I used them with my blender pens (also Stampin' Up!) and I have to tell you - I have had these suckers for at least three years too and have never cracked open the package.  I thought they would be all dried up and useless...but they worked perfectly!!! That was impressive.  Anyway - here's my little card - which is my first attempt with the watercolor pencils.  I didn't mind them...but they certainly aren't my copics!! :)

The Friday challenge today threw me for a loop!!! It was our regular COPIC challenge...but you had to use the theme HOEDOWN!!! |WTH????  I don't have any hoedown stamps....and I couldn't find anything on the web (if you can believe that one) I came up with this.  Hope they think its okay.   I did some paper piecing on this little fellow ...but I did use copics for the face and his hair.  Isn't he cute??!!! 

Well, that's about it for today.....thanks for stopping by!! You'll still have all week to get in on the challenges and prizes c'mon over and have some fun!!!  See you soon!!!
