We're Stitching At Tuesday Throwdown!

Hello!!!  It's time for another new challenge at Tuesday Throwdown and this week we are sponsored by our very own Kim Sherrod!  http://www.amusestudio.com/kimsherrod

Our theme this week is "Stitching".  I saw a card on the front of Cardmaking and Papercrafts magazine and I just loved it, so I made my own version of it.

It's a little simpler than the one on the magazine, but I love it.  The sentiment is a freebie from the magazine and the border is a Cricut cut.  The papers are scraps from my stash and the flowers are from The Paper Studio.  I stitched around the edge of the card on my sewing machine.

Thanks for stopping by and please check out all the other great creations at Tuesday Throwdown!

The Old Tractor

Hello!  Today I have another Design Team card to share for Tuesday Throwdown.  We are sponsored this week by
and our theme is "Texture". 

I used our sponsors image "The Old Tractor", precolored, for my card:

I used a piece of burlap for the background texture and knotted a piece of twine to look somewhat like barbed wire. I tore the edges of the image and used distress ink.  The wheat is a Cricut diecut.  It's from the "Botanicals" cartridge.

Now for my reality........

I see a little problem here!  Oh well, I just cut off the front and glued it to another card. Right side up this time!

Thanks for stopping by and, as always, I hope you'll join us at Tuesday Throwdown!

Dance To The Music of Your Dreams...

Hello!  It's Tuesday and you know what that means...a new challenge at Tuesday Throwdown!  This week we are sponsored by
and we have a sketch for your inspiration:

 I've used our sponsor's image "Love Bug 5" for my card for one of my Zippy Zebra buddies:
 I've colored the image with Spectrum Noir pencils and mounted it onto a Spellbinders Die.  The background paper is from the latest Cardmaking and Paper Crafts Magazine freebie.   The flower brads are some golden oldies I've had in my stash since I started scrapbooking...which was before I started cardmaking...which was before I started blogging...so they're OLD!

 Inside I've used a sentiment stamp from Stampabilities and on the left is a sticker.

I love this sentiment: "Dance to the music of your dreams; the steps will bring you joy."  I found this in my "Sentiments" folder and I know it was a magazine freebie,but I'm not sure which one.  I think it was Cardmaker Magazine.  

Thanks for stopping by!  Please go by and check out all the great inspiration at Tuesday Throwdown!
