What a fantastic 2 weeks it's been at Outlawz and our "Where in the World" celebration! I really hope you had an opportunity to join in on some of the fabulous games and challenges. Good luck on being a winner if you did!!! Winners will be announced Wednesday, July 11 at the Outlawz. It was such fun to see all the CAS challenge creations, and I'm glad it's a random drawing, because who could choose from all of the fabulous entries?
Today my post is for week two in Outlawz July CAS challenge- "Christmas in July". I know many other challenge sites have the same theme going on, however the Outlawz CAS DT is adding a tiny addition....your card must be inspired by a Christmas or holiday song. Here are the specifics...While the weather outside is not so frightful, we challenge you to put on your favorite holiday carol/song, or wintery song, and use it as inspiration for your CAS project this week. Please include what song inspired you :) Remember, this song can be used to inspire you in ANY way...even it is not a Christmas/Winter Holiday card.
My card was inspired by the song, "I'll Be Home For Christmas". I get so emotional whenever I hear it. Aside from Christmas carols, this is the Christmas song my mother loves most. (Being that she's of the "Greatest Generation" and this was a WWII song what it means to her goes without saying).
I paper pieced the heart balloon from "Big Boys Toys" by RI with scrap pieces from Authentique "Glory" dp. The sentiment is also from RI - #3703 and today, last day, it's available for 50% off for RI blog members. Every Monday there's a stamp offered to blog members for 50% off. The bg is PTI "Spring Rain" CS die cut (negatives) with Memory Box cloud dies. The base CS is GKD Pure Luxury White and Black Onyx. The "ribbon" is a piece of Trendy Tape that I adhered to CS and cut. The USA also came from a scrap piece of Authentique "Glory" paper.
Thanks so much for stopping by!
