Poinsettia image by Anne Fenton

I have been following Anne of "Anne's Cards 4 U"for quite some time now.  Probably since the very beginning of my blogging journey.  I instantly fell in love with her digital images and her talent keeps calling me back for more.   I also, just recently, joined The Outlawz and have been blessed to keep in touch with Anne there, too. 

At the beginning of November, Anne paired up with another fabulous artist, Sandi of Sandi'sSamples  over at The Outlawz to begin a new challenge series titled Creative Freebie Challenge.  This is a progressive freebie challenge that will be ending on 11/19/11.  So hurry over to get your 4 wonderful images and get creating.  Once you create the necessary projects, you will be in the pool to get the next set of images.  And, they are fantastic!!!  Pop over to see for yourself!

Here is the first creation I have completed in hopes to finish another project with each of the 3 remaining images before the deadline.
Card stock base - Olive Green by Recollections
Design Paper - I received from the fabulous Rona when I purchased my {ippity} stamps
Trim card stock - Red by Recollections
Oval card stock - Green by Recollections, cut using Creative Memories Oval (small), embossed with snowflakes
Image - Poinsettia Image by Anne Fenton, colored with Whispers Strokes
Tag - c'oredinations trim borders hand cut and sanded, vintage rub-on, poinsettia and brad from stash
