Color Inspiration at Tuesday Throwdown

Good morning!  This week at Tuesday Throwdown we are sponsored by


and we have a color inspiration challenge.

Recently I dug out all of my 6x6 and 4x6 paper, stacked it up and resolved to use it!  I actually found a sheet in that stack with all of these colors in it!

The image is from our sponsor and called "Perfect Poppies".  These colors look so much better in real life!  

Pretty simple, but sweet.  Thanks for stopping by!

One Happy Reindeer Card

Time for another challenge at Tuesday Throwdown!  This week we are sponsored by our very own Kim Sherrod!  Our theme is "Make An Interactive Card".   This is a new one for me, so I was truly challenged!  But I had so much fun! 

I used a great video from Lawn Fawn here to make this card.

Isn't that cute?!?!  The little reindeer is from My Grafico and I had him in my file of pictures I had previously colored and ready to go.  The cute trees are Cricut cuts from "Create A Critter".  

And he's so excited about getting to lead the sleigh, he jumps and spins all around!

After taking pictures of the card I decided it just really needed something else.  I played with lace, with ribbon and finally found these sweet snowflake rhinestones from Darice in my stash.  Voila'!  

I love it now!  Just the touch I needed!  And I made sure Rudolph could still jump and spin all around with no problem.

Thanks for stopping by and be sure to join in this one, it's really fun!

I haven't joined any challenges for awhile, so decided I'd enter this little guy here:

Aud Sentiments - anything goes with a sentiment
Crafting By Designs - Get ready for Christmas
The Crafter's Cafe - for a child
Whoopsi Daisy - anything goes with option of hand colored image.
The Outlawz - Festive Fridays

"Tag It" at Tuesday Throwdown

It's Tuesday so that means another awesome challenge at Tuesday Throwdown!  This week our theme is "Tag It" and we are sponsored by

I've used the beautiful "French Brunch Paper: and their precolored image "Yummy" for my card
I printed the "Yummy" image on their pretty paper and on another piece of scrap.  Then I fussy cut the image on the scrap and added it to the original print with pop dots for some added dimension.
The tag is a Cricut cut and I've used the write then cut feature for it and for the inside.

Thanks for checking in!  I hope to see you join in the fun this week!

The poem is one I found online and used the writing function on the Cricut for it and the thank you section..

My First "Screen" Card

We have a new challenge this week at Tuesday Throwdown and our theme is "Create Your Own Background".  I've created the background on the inside of my card.

 I'm excited to share this card with you today!  I saw these super cute "Screen Cards" in the Cardmaking and Papercraft Magazine and I decided I could recreate those in Design Space.  Here's the magazine picture:

And after much pasting, slicing and dicing, here is my first one:

I love how it turned out and it was so fun!  I've created the background on the inside with a foam daisy stamp that I randomly stamped on my paper before cutting it for the panels.  The poem on the left was done with the writing feature of the Cricut.  Super easy and perfect for my card!  All the diecuts are Cricut images.  The poem says:  "Mother's love is peace.  It need not be acquired.  It need not be deserved."  by Erich Fromm.

Thanks for stopping by!

Thanks for stopping by and I hope to see you join us this week!
