Patriotic Candle

This week at Tuesday Throwdown we are sponsored by

and our theme is "It's in the Stars (use stars)"
I've been on a little break having a family campout/reunion and didn't get a digi colored up and ready for this one, so I made this candle instead:

Pretty simple, but fun to make!  Come on over and join in with us!

Patriotic Lantern

It's time for another fun challenge at My Sheri Crafts and Glenda has chosen "Happy 4th of July - Make a Patriotic card or project".  I used a Silhouette cut file to make a fun lantern

I used fiber twine to make a "chain" and ribbon to cover the top and bottom.

 I used some of the extra stars to hand down inside the lantern.  It really needs something else, but I just don't know what to do yet.  I'll keep studying on that!  Meanwhile, you head on over to My Sheri and check out the rest of the teams great projects!

I love this new Paper Pack!

Oh I bought more paper!  I had sworn off buying anymore because I have so much, but when I saw this pack.....I broke!  But it was on sale at Hobby Lobby, so it was much easier to cave!  
Item image    GORGEOUS!!!!!

 This week at Twisted Thursday, our theme is "Anything Goes With a Twist" and our Twist is "Anything Goes!" That's right...it's totally Anything Goes this week!

                                                       We are sponsored by the fantastic 

And here's my birthday card using a little sweetie from our sponsor:

She's colored with Spectrun Noir markers.  I didn't find a paper that matched the printed paper, so I used some Tim Holtz Antique Linen distress ink to make some!  That's what I used for the top layer of the tag and the mat for the (Spellbinders) die-cut.  The sentiment is a Cricut print and cut, but I don't know which cartridge.    I also added some little paper-quilled butterflies that I've had in my stash forever.  The package is gone, so I don't know who made them.

I hope you'll join us this week at The Outlawz Twisted Thursday!

Madame Butterfly?

Hello Outlawz and Friends!  This week at Twisted Thursday, our theme is "Anything Goes With a Twist" and our Twist is "Things With Wings"  We are sponsored by the fantastic 

I've used their image "Touch of Class I" to make a general greeting card:

The butterfly background is a Cricut cut from the Paper Lace cartridge. I used two of a little larger mat cut, welded together for my card base.

I tied a double bow using black sheer ribbon and black ribbon with inlaid gold thread, topped off with a pretty glittered flower from The Paper Studio.

I hope you'll join us this week at The Outlawz Twisted Thursday!

Never to Old for Cars

This week at Tuesday Throwdown we are sponsored by 

and our theme is "Mr. Fix-It".  I know it's time for Father's Day cards, but since my husband and my Father-in-Law are neither on "Fix-It" men, I opted for a birthday card I could give someone else!  :P

I used our sponsor's digi "Classic Cars" for my card:

The image is colored with Spectrum Noir markers, the key came from a piece for jewelry making, and the wrenches are a Silhouette cut.  The little bolts I hand cut.

This sentiment came with the set, minus the parts in red.  I was making this card at a crop and had printed out the sentiment, then messed it up when I cropped the corners.  I couldn't reprint it there, so I hand wrote it.  Then that committed me to handwriting the inside to match!

Come on over to  Tuesday Throwdown and join us with your tribute to the "Mr. Fix-It" in your life!

A Roping Prize Framed Up

This week at My Sheri Crafts our challenge is to "Make a Masculine Card or Project".  I had a couple of pictures of Tim with his jacket he won at a roping a few years ago, so I fixed them up in a frame.

The little lasso is a sticker and the "Team Roping" at the bottom is a cut file I made from free clip art I imported in the Silhouette software.  I cut it from vinyl and put it on top of the glass.  Now I wish I had put it across the middle, where the two picture come together and put the lasso at the bottom.  Oh well..........!

I hope you'll join us at  My Sheri Crafts with your project!

#1 Dad - Cowboy Style

Time for another Twist and The Outlawz Twisted Thursday!  This week we are sponsored by
As always, our challenges are "Anything Goes with a Twist".  
This week's twist is "Father's Day or Nature".

I really liked this old cowboy from our sponsor!  I've colored him with Spectrum Noir markers and used up some scrap pieces of paper and burlap with a little rope to embellish it.  The "#1 dad" is a Silhouette cut, and I antiqued the paper with some Tim Holtz Distress Ink.  

Be sure to head over to  Twisted Thursday to check out all the other fun and fantastic inspiration, then join in!  See you there!

God Bless America Floating Frame

This week at The Outlawz Twisted Thursday we are sponsored by the fantastic  Sponsor Stitchy Bear

As always our theme is "Anything Goes with a Twist" and this week the twist is Music Inspired.
My project is inspired by the song "God Bless America" and I've used our sponsor's digi "Flag Girl"
in making a "Floating Frame".

The frame sentiment is cut from Cricut's |Stand and Salute cartridge, the background paper is a sheet of flag stationery.  I added some neat ribbon and some old earrings.  The picture is my dad in his WWII Navy uniform. 
I'm really going to enjoy hanging this one up this year as we celebrate our nation's freedom and my dad's contribution to it!
