 Our challenge theme this week is:
Our Furry Little Friends
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Make a card or project which uses a furry friend.  Nope, sorry but butterflies, ants, and creepy crawlers don't count.  It has to be something which has fur!  Let your imagination run free this time; just make sure we can spot the theme in your creation. ;-)

Please note, entries which do not follow the theme will not count for the prize draw and may be removed.

I use my love of photography, nature and the outdoors as inspiration for my sketches.  Animals are my favorite subject.  I feel that every animal is an individual and has their own personality.  I focus on that personality when creating a character on paper.  I'm happy to share my sketches with the papercrafting world and hope they will make others smile.

 I'll leave you with a more recent photo of my ' helpful ' craft buddy, Mathilda. 


Hello, I’m Chris and I live in South East England. I’ve been married for 42 years to a lovely and very tolerant husband who cannot quite believe how long I can spend (and how much mess I can make☺) in my craft room! ( I don’t ever tell him how much I spend….!) . We have one pet, our beloved Mathilda (aka Tilly), a not-quite–two-year-old Great Dane. I have two grown-up children and three beautiful granddaughters, Olivia and Ruby, who already share my love of crafting and can’t wait to get their hands on ‘Nanny’s stuff.’ Emily will probably join them – she’s just 2 months old!
I have been card-making for about 8 years, and I also enjoy scrapbooking, when I can find the time.
I am delighted to be guest designer for Tuesday Throwdown this month!

Please welcome our GDT for the month of July,  Susan


live in the state of Georgia in the good ole' south where they call us all Georgia Peaches! LOL  I am the wife to a wonderful man, Kevin, who is from Australia. He is very tolerant of my crafting!! I am a mother of three, Taylor (20), Michael (15) and Bailey (12, almost 13!). We have  two dogs, T-Bone and Brisket and two cats Highlight and White-Out. Do you see our theme? LOL The dogs are named after cuts of beef LOL and the cats are office supplies LOL!!! I know.. we are very goofy!!

I have been crafting since the dawn of ages. Okay.. maybe that is a little bit of an exaggeration, but I first found a small scrapbooking store right after I had Taylor.. so that is 20 years ago!!! During a bad marriage my crafting fell off. When Kevin and I got together I pulled all of the crafting supplies out of the garage to see if I could have a go at it again. 

Wow!!  I missed it so much. But then I found blogs!! And cards!!! And challenges!!! LOL  A whole new world opened up for me!!  I couldn't believe it all existed and I didn't know anything about it.  I have met so many wonderful people in the crafting community and I am always looking forward to meeting new crafters!!
