What's More "Up In The Air" than aHalloween Broom?

Hello there!  It's Tuesday again and that means another fun challenge at Tuesday Throwdown!  This week we are sponsored by our very own  Crafty Girl and our theme is "Up In The Air"
.                                              http://stitchybearstamps.com/shop/index.php?main_page=index&cPath=13_114  

 I thought this image from Crafty Girls was so cute for my first Halloween card of the year!

I colored the image with a combination of Spectrum Noir pens and gel pens.  Again, I got to use up scraps of paper, even the black glitter paper!  Then I added some fun sequins from Studio Katia.  The "Boo" is a Cricut cut, made twice and offset with a little faux stitching with an orange gel pen.  I'm really not very good at that!  lol   Can't keep them even.  Oh well, I like the card anyway!  

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

A Lovely Birthday

This week at Tuesday Throwdown our theme is "Anything Goes"!  We are sponsored by 

I've used an image I found in my file that I had already colored and it matched perfectly with some pretty paper from that stack of 4 1/2 x 6 1/2 cardstock that I've determined to use up! 

 Then I found a scrap  laying on my work desk from a previous project that coordinated well.  In looking for something to mat the image, I went through my box of diecuts that were extra or rejected from other projects and found this half circle and the filigree cut.  I love using up scraps!  It makes me feel like I'm cleaning out clutter!  

On the inside I used the writing feature of the Cricut Explore and Violet satin marker.  

That's all for today.  Thanks for stopping by!
