Cute Dragon Panda

Hello!  This week at Tuesday Throwdown, we are sponsored by 
and our challenge theme is "Playing Dress Up". 

I've used our sponsor's image "Halloween Panda" for my card:

Inside is a simple "It's your Birthday!"  

I thought this little guy was really cute and a lot of fun to color.  
I used Spectrum Noir markers and two Cricut circles for his background.  A little twine finished it off nicely.

I hope you'll join us this week!  Thanks for stopping by!

Webbed Gate Card

http://www.disdigistamps.com/This week at Tuesday Throwdown we are sponsored by Di's Digi Stamps and our theme is "Webbed Wished - Use a Spider Web".

I had this fun image from Sasayaki Glitter already colored in my stash so when I found this cool Spider Web Gate in the Cricut Design Space, I knew what I wanted to do!

 This gate is in Cricut's October 31st cartridge.  The font for Wyatt is A Frightful Affair. 

I love that!  The monsters have arrived to Trick or Treat!  
And then I found this card base in my stash that I had done last year and never used.  It's made with the writing feature of the Cricut.

Super quick and easy when you find these things in your stash!  Hahaha!

Thanks for checking in.  I hope you'll join us for this fun challenge!  

I've entered this card here:

Aud Sentiments - funny sentiment (inside)
Craftng From the Heart - anything goes
Creative Craft Cottage - pretty in pink or Halloween
Creative Moments - anything goes with twist "Spooktacular"
Die Cuttin' Divas - anything goes

Green Hope Ribbon

Hello!  This week at Tuesday Throwdown we are sponsored by  All Dressed Up
https://www.etsy.com/shop/alldressedupstamps and our theme is "For A Cause". 
I know October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, but I kind of wanted to give a little attention to some other cause.  I looked on the Awareness Ribbon Color Chart and found that the Green Ribbon covered MANY causes, including Mental Health and Mental Illness. I chose this because I've just recently learned the "rest of the story" of a sweet little boy my friends adopted who occasionally had behavior problems.  Those behaviors became more extreme and more frequent.  They finally had to place him in a facility to get help.  They found this poor little boy had been so abused in his early childhood that he had developed 15 different personalities!  FIFTEEN!  Imagine the horrible things he endured to cause this issue.  Thankfully, he is getting the help he needs, but imagine all the people who can't pay for this treatment. 

Anyway, here is my card:

I used our sponsor's image "Oriental Girl" and colored her with Spectrum Noir markers.  The ribbons are a Circut cut.  The top floral paper is a scrap and the name is gone.  The bottom paper is a Cricut print. 

I felt it needed a little bling, but no more busyness, so I used Glitter Gel Pens to highlight the ribbons and various places on the image.

So thanks for stopping by and hearing a little bit of my heart.  I hope you'll join us with your projects and your cause!

More than just a little bit late!

OK, this is a lesson in not procrastinating. I posted my card to our DT page in plenty of time and then instead of going ahead to make my post on my blog and scheduling it, I just started a new draft and added the picture intending to come back to it.  Then I got sick with what I thought was the flu but turned out to be a combination to a UTI and a bacterial infection.  So here I am, 2 weeks later, scheduling my next DT post and finally getting this one posted!  

This sweet image is from our own Crafty Girl and our theme at the time was to add some texture.  I added a strip of burlap ribbon and then used my distressing tool to rough up the edges.  Plus a few little gemstones.  

Kitchen Trivet

My sister just moved back to our hometown and I'm happy to have her this close again!  I made this trivet for her first housewarming gift.

I found these trivets and Dollar Tree.  Weeding this was a lot of work, I won't lie.  I had to recut a few letters and add them in.  And then there was this "s" that I looked and looked for and didn't find until I was doing laundry!  I made another trivet that said "Nana's Kitchen" and I'll be changing one particular font before I make any more!  

But I do like how they've turned out and Lynna seemed very pleased with hers.

Owl Bulletin Board

Doggone it!  I went on vacation and forgot to set this post to publish yesterday!!!

This week at Tuesday Throwdown our theme is "Book Lover or Book worm" and we are sponsored by

I've used an image from our sponsor to make a small bulletin board to use at work:

The image is approximately 7" x 7" and the letters are from the "A Child's Year" cartridge.  I've colored the image with Spectrum Noir markers and hand cut it out.
