A Panda Hello

Good morning!  It's time for another sweet challenge at Tuesday Throwdown!  This week our theme is "Crop Your Image" and we are sponsored by

I've used our sponsor's cute "Winter Panda" for my card.  Here is the original digi:
and here is my card with the cropped image:

I didn't do any coloring this time and used papers with lots of color.  The sentiment is made with the Write and Cut feature of the Cricut Explore, then mounted on "Doyley Circles", Cricut cuts. from The First Few Years cartridge.  The paper is from Studio 18 and the ribbon is from American Crafts.

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

From All of Us Critters

Well, Tuesday brings another new challenge at Tuesday Throwdown!  This week our theme is "Critter Crazy" and we are sponsored by:

I've used 3 images from their Woodland Critters set for my card.

I like the simpleness of this one!  I printed the image and sentiment on the card base and images only a second time on scrap paper before coloring and hand cutting them out.  A little fun bling from Studio Katia and it's all done!  Well, the outside is, anyway.  Inside is a Congratulations stamp.

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

A Shiny Mandela Flower

Good morning!  We start another fun challenge today over at Tuesday Throwdown!  Our theme is Glimmer and Shine. This week we have a new sponsor, and I love their stuff!  
Studio Katia has beautiful stamps and embellishments!  Today I have a fun card to share using their Mandela Flower stamp for the image, the sentiment is from their Blooming Bunch set, the bling is from their Crystal Rainbow Confetti and Crystal Rainbow Fusion.  (I tried to use all the colors included in the bling sets.  They're so fun!)

.  This picture doesn't do the colors justice.

I colored the image with Spectrum Noir pencils and added a strip of shimmery yellow ribbon.  The lavender mat is glitter cardstock, for just a little more shine!

Now, who doesn't want to play with bling this week?!?  Get to sparkling and come join us!

A Rainbow Zebra

Hello!  Today is another new challenge at Tuesday Throwdown.  We are sponsored this week by "Your Next Stamp" and they have the cutest stamps!

I've used their stamp set "Jungle Critters 2" for my card:

I've stamped the zebra 3 times.  The first layer is on the card base, the second and third were on a separate piece of scrap and I've hand cut them out, the third layer is just his face and both layers are mounted with pop dots so he really stands out with some dimension.  He's colored with Spectrum Noir markers.

The sentiment stamp is part of the set and the little dots are sparkly Gumdrops available from our sponsor.   

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

Time for another new challenge at Tuesday Throwdown!  This week our sponsor is  and I've used their "Birthday Ewe Trio".  For a fun little twist, I made it a congrats card instead of birthday.

The image is colored with Spectrum Noir markers and mounted on some Colorbox polka dot paper.  The label is 2 different Cricut cuts layered together and tied on with twice.  The stars are some OLD metal ones I've had in my stash for ages.

Thanks for stopping by!

Being A Big Brother

It's time for another new challenge at Tuesday Throwdown!  This week our sponsor is http://www.mygrafico.com/digital-stamps/cat_95.html

and our challenge theme is "Real Life Heroes.  I've used our sponsor's images "Super Hero #3" and "Spotlight" for my card:

The images are colored with Spectrum Noir markers and I've cut out the Hero and mounted him with foam dots.  The sentiment is one I read online and typed up.  The blue paper is some I've had in my stash for years and years.  It looked like the perfect match for the images and I didn't feel like it needed any more embellishments for a little boy.  I've made this for one of my little Zebra Buddies who is going to be a big brother soon.
