Tuesday Throwdown Challenge #389 with CraftyGirl Creations

Here's something to crow about .....

This week's Tuesday Throwdown Challenge is an  
Anything Goes Challenge,
and it is sponsored by one of our own Design Team members, Crafty Girl Creations, who very generously gave us digis to work with this week.

I'm also crowing because I chose an adorable rooster digi.
He was so much fun to color.
Most of the cards I make are for children.
Aren't these fun...

 I was thinking of my 13 year old grandson when I made this card.  He called us the other evening to proudly tell us he was chosen for the 7th grade baseball team, no small feat considering the size of his school and the number of kids that tryout!

Please hop on over to the Tuesday Throwdown Challenge blog to see the other cards made by our fabulous  design team.
They'd be so happy if you also visited their individual blogs and left them some love.
And don't forget to take a look at CraftyGirl Creations, too. 


Wishing you a day full of sunshine with something to crow about!

Old and New + CTMH card class 4/17/2018

In cleaning out my stash, I came across some old Lucy paper from CTMH and decided to combine it with a new stamp from SU and another CTMH sentiment stamp.
As an added touch, I stamped the envelope, too. 
This is one of the four cards I designed for a group of my 
Red Hatters to make.

Foil Adhesive is Awesome

Check out how great the new Foil Adhesive looks over the stamping on this card!
(I used a bit on the balloon on yesterday's card, too)
 The stamps are from Hero Arts; frame and butterfly are cricut cuts on the CTMH Art Philosophy cartridge; I used a border punch and ribbon to make the center section; and the card base is SU.

Have a Beautiful Day!

This is one of my favorite stamps from Sweet n Sassy.  
And the sentiments that come with it are wonderful.
I used markers and colored pencils on the image 
and then fussy cut it.

Black, White & Neon Lime Green

After cutting paper for a dozen card kits, I was left with 6 pieces of black and white paper that I was not going to save. Instead, I made two Father's Day cards for SAS4K.
 The panda stamp is from SU; sentiment is CTMH;
 and cricut cut tag is from CTMH Artiste cartridge.
