Taking a Thanksgiving Break


Happy Thanksgiving to all our Friends, Followers, and Players.






Because of the Thanksgiving holiday in the US on Thursday,
the Tuesday Throwdown teams are taking a break
and we have no challenge this week.

We will announce the winner and Top 3

Tuesday Throwdown - TT220 - Shaped Cards

Welcome to Tuesday Throwdown # 220. What fabulous projects and cards everyone did last week!   Holiday season is quickly approaching. Have you started your shopping??   We're so glad you came to join us!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
A BIG WELCOME TO FOUR NEW TEAM A DT MEMBERS !!!

IRENE WATSON
I currently live just outside Lincoln but am originally from Northern
 Ireland. I have lived in England for 18 years now. I live with my partner
 Pete and our 2 gorgeous little boys. Austin is 3 years old and Zac is
 3 months old. I am currently on maternity leave from my office job and 
am loving every minute of it! I find time to craft at every spare minute I can.
I have been crafting for years when I think about it. I remember making
attachments to spruce up old slippers years ago as a child, 
and doing cross stitch in my early twenties. I have been making cards for about
5 years-ish! I love stamping, making boxes and trying anything new! I get a 
lot of inspiration from other peoples blogs and from Pinterest.
I hope I am able to bring some of my ideas to others and to also inspire them
 to try new things! Irene's blog is http://irenestrainscardcreations.blogspot.co.uk/

PAM TIEDTKE
Firstly, I am a Christian and very involved in church but was also
a paramedic in Green Bay, WI until I retired early about 2 years ago. 
My home is located just a couple of blocks away from the beautiful
shores of Lake Michigan, in the city of Algoma, WI. I'm married to a
wonderful guy, my best friend, for 42 years and have two grown daughters
and a couple of "grandkitties". Rubber stamping has been my passion for
about 20 years so I've transitioned through the years from wood, cling,
clear, and digis, loving ALL of them. I find that I learn something new 
every day still!! I mainly make cards but I do occasionally scrapbook. 
I am a Jamberry Nails consultant, a Fun Stampers Journey coach, 
and part of Mark's Finest Sketch With A Twist and Simple Salutations design teams.
hugs and blessings!

RACHELLE OLARIDGE
Hi there! My name is Rachelle and I am so excited and honored to be
apart of the awesome Tuesday Throwdown team. I am a mother to 2 grown
sons and grandmother to 2 beautiful grandchildren. I was a 6th grade teacher
for 7 years.
Now I am wheelchair bound and keeping busy is still my goal. I started
scrapbooking in 2008 when I viewed a friends work. "I've got to do this" was 
my immediate thought. My passion quickly turned into addiction for this type 
of artistry and I never looked back.
My obsession has expanded since 2009 for creating cards, altered art, 
mixed media, canvas artwork. I love using a variety of techniques, elegant
and fun elements.Yes, I can do it all. My style has been described as detailed,
beautiful, and multifaceted.Am just a shabby chic girl. My greatest strength is 
attention to detail. I pay close attention to my design and elements I select
 for each project. With inspiration I take the viewer on a visual journey of my designs.

RUTH TURNER
I’m Ruth, 30 something mum of Daisy and avid crafter. Have been crafting for
 about 10 years now, and have worked for several crafty companies.
I now have a “real” day job but love to spend every spare moment
in my studio at the local “makers village”. I’m also a big collector of 
vintage tea-cups and love to snuggle up on the sofa with my girl and a 
great movie. Ruth's blog www.fairy-heaven.blogspot.co.uk
