About Me

My photo
Hi, my name is Terri. My grandmothers taught me how to crochet and embroider on dish towels when I was a little girl, and that started my love of crafting. Over the years I tried different things but my favorite is still stamping and card making. And what makes it better now is that my 2 sisters like it also!! It's fun when we can get together and make cards!! I love learning new ideas and techniques and give hope to others to step out of their comfort zone and try a few new things. Thanks so much for stopping by....follow along if you'd like and see what we can create!!

Tuesday Throwdown Challenge 370

Welcome to Tuesday Throwdown Challenge!  This week's theme is "Ribbon and Lace" and is sponsored by Kitty Bee Designs.  I was so delighted to work with one of their images....please do check out their website!!  I used this sweet "Santa Owl" image and colored it with Copic markers.  I embossed the red cardstock with a Cuttlebug embossing folder and glued down 2 pieces of white lace. I layered a piece of patterned paper on black cardstock and tied a piece of green ribbon around it. I mounted the owl image on a black scalloped circle and added 3 red rhinestones for the berries and some sparkle pen on the brim of the hat.  I popped up a "Merry Christmas" sentiment in the lower corner.

I'm so happy you stopped by - I hope you'll join our "Ribbon and Lace" challenge this week.  If I don't see you before.....have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.  Thank you for supporting Tuesday Throwdown Challenges throughout this year!!
