My Favorite Day is FRIDAY!!

And can you believe  it is the last day of October! This month has flown by and it will be Thanksgiving in a blink of the eye!! So it's also time for a new Challenge at Tutorial Time with Speedy TV. This week is a fun Challenge,  we are doing Quilling.
I didnt have any tools for it so I just cut some very thin strips of paper and rolled on a pair of tweezers and it worked just fine. You will have to stop over and visit our blog. The girls all did different things so you will get some great ideas to join in the challenge.
I wasn't terribly creative I went for easy so flowers were the ticket. I had some soft floral dp for a background to stitch onto the aqua and then added a little piece of embossed picket fencing. The sentiment is from the Today Tomorrow and Always Set.

Friends of Speedy TV

Hope you all had a great weekend! Its starting to cool off here so we finished getting out garden in this weekend.
 So on to our is to use have a moving part. I started several different things and I just didnt like any of it SO my moving part is a bit of fudging LOL!!
I have used the Fairy images cut out and colored.
I used a couple pieces of Lost & Found dp, a little stitching and the sentiment from the same Fairy Set. The edge was added using a MS Arches punch. The stamped postage is from the All Postal Set.

For the inside I had a piece of dp with fairies on it to use. The top and bottom was added using the MS Arches punch again. A Spellbinder Scalloped Oval punch out so you are able to see the postal dp and the sentiment stamped from the Bring On The Sun Set. I stamped out the small fairy in brown, cut out and perched on the top and the larger one on the other side. I took a little liberty and added long hair to each of the fairies and a little floral garland on this one also. The moving part is when you open the card the center pops out!!

A little closer up to see the sweet fairy.
We would be delighted for you to stop by and join our Challenge this week!! My talented teammates all have different ideas for you to use for the moving parts.

Tutorial Time with Speedy TV

This week our Challenge is brought to us by Lis. Our fun tutorial is making bugs using punches, dies and scrap papers. I used a couple punches for my lady bugs. A round red cut in half layered over a black oval and then two different hole punches for the dots.I used white paint for the eyes A few Spellbinder layered flowers and viola there you go. The dotted dp makes it a little wild and crazy for the eye, but the idea is to be fun. This was quick and easy. Each of my teamies did different things. Check out all their clever ideas!!

Tuesday Throwdown Challenge

Today our B team is challenging you to make a card representing Awarenss! I work for and Optometrist/Ophthalmologist and October is Eye Care Awareness  so my card is representative of that.
Our Sponsor is BUGABOO and my image is Knobby Knees Vacation Girl. 
I just returned Sunday night from a trip to Hawaii to visit my daughter and family. This card was for them before I got there, AND Im so thankful that I was able to see them and all the beauty Hawaii had to offer.
 Just a little plug for the importance of regular eye exams! It isnt all about if you need glasses or not. A good eye health check can detect vision/ health issues because your eyes are truly a window that can find other heath issues. My doctor has found indicators of tumors, diabetes, high blood pressure, cholestrol, etc in Many patients who didnt know they had problems. It has literally saves two childrens lives who turned out to have cancer, several who were on the verge of a stroke or didnt know they had diabetes!

Do you have Autumn colors yet?

It is still warm in my neck of the woods. Today at FOSTV our challenge is to use Autumn Colors. I have used a Martha Steward punch for the bottom and lined it with black to show up. The burgandy was cut with a Spellbinder Fancy Oval and the sentiment cut with a Spellbinder Fancy Tag. The large leaves were punched with a Marvy Maple Leaf and embossed with a Stampin Up folder. The small leaves were cut with Spellbinder and embossed also. A quick simple card but I like the colors. Hope you all pop over to join the fun this week.

 My early birthday/ Christmas gift was a ticket to visit my youngest daughter and family so and I  just returned a few hours ago from a Fabulous visit. It has been a long three years since I have seen them so this was a real treat and added to that, they live in Hawaii so I was double blessed!!

Happy Friday to you all!

Today is our Tutorial Time with Speedy TV Challenge. The challenge is brought to us by  Barbie and the tutorial is about making backgrounds or dp with Alcohol Splatter. This was easy and made some nice dp. I did a springy on and a fall colored one using them for backgrounds. They give the feel of being in a garden or forest with light dancing on the leaves and petals.

I used the Tim Holtz   Lettuce,  Eggplant and blue Alcohol Inks for this one.
The top border was cut with the Spellbinder out of SU paper. The sentiment if from the SET and cut and layered on the Spellbinder Ovals. The butterfly is from Cherry Lynn.

I used the Tim Holtz  Raisin, Butterscotch and Pesto Alcohol Inks On this one. Leaves were punched with a Marvy Maple leaf , fern leaf and Spellbinder maple.

We all used this one differently, be sure to stop by and check all my teammates Inspiring Creations!

Over the moon with excitement!! Leaving tonight to go to Hawaii to visit my youngest daughter and family, can hardly wait!!
