It's time for team B's Challenge this week. The theme for this weeks
 challenge is Family Christmas
 Our generous Sponsor is Stamping Boutique and I have used their Birds and Stockings Image.
Doesnt this cute little image make you think of family all hanging out together!! 
After coloring I added some background and plenty of sparkle on the stocking
 cuffs and the ground around the poles. After cutting out I used some 
SU Kraft to mat it on. The pretty sparkly dp is from my friend Martha. 
Matted the MFP sentiment on a darker brown and added to star
 button for a bit of a homespun look.
 Lots of pretty inspiration from my teammates this week so stop 
over and join our challenge this week.

Good Morning Friends....

Today at Friends of Speedy TV we are challenging you to
 use Blue & Silver. 
 Get you mojo stirring and come join the fun. I needed a few more Christmas Cards 
so I have two  simple ones to share with you today. I tell you I took a bucket load 
of photos and just couldnt get the silver to show up right and the
 blues look totally different in person, better that is! Oh well you will
 get the general idea!! The Snowflake and Joy
 were embossed with silver. The image is from the Snowflake Set 2014 and 
Joy from the Presents Set. The dark blue is stitched in silver and a silver ribbon 
added. How about that embossed border, I love it!!
. My sweet friend Martha sent
 me a Huge box full of all kinds of paper and papercrafting goodies for
 my birthday, and this was one of the folders!

The second card uses the Poinsettia from the Poinsettia Blooms Set
 stamped twice on vellum, embossed with silver and cut out. I then colored 
the poinsettias blue which doesnt show! The layers are foam dotted onto the
 Spellbinder cut base. The dp is edged with silver Stickles.
 Merry Christmas from the same set is embossed also.

Be sure to stop by and see all the lovely creations my teams have made!!

Hope you all had a Super Thanksgiving! 
We enjoyed ours with some of our family. Today starts a new TTSTV Challenge
 and it is water coloring with Gelatos.This is my first time using them.
 My small starter set only had 8 colors and purple isnt one of them so
 had to mix some up. I used them for the background swirling purples
 and aquas together on water color paper. It was stitched onto some
 Stampin Up purple. I love the lantern image from the Poinsettia Set. Colored 
with the Gelatos, cut out and foam dotted on the base. 
The Sentiment  is also from the Poinsettia Set added and a
 simple Christmas card is done!

Friends of Speedy TV

has a fun challenge this week, a Double Dutch card.
 I'v never made one, how about you?
You can find easy instructions on the internet.

 Since Christmas is just around the corner I made a Christmas card.
 I used several different images. The snowflake images are from the Snowflakes Set, the 
snowmen are from the Set and the sentiments are three different sets. I stamped 
and embossed the snowflakes and snow inside and out. Although it doesnt show the
 snowflakes are shimmery from the glitter I added.  Next I stamped, colored and 
cut out the snowmen.
 The snowflake is two layers foam dotted on and a button added.
 The Sentiment from the Your're An Angel Set 
stamped and was embossed with a snowflake folder.

The scene when you lift the top door is made with some torn some paper 
to create the snow to put my little snowman  and tree on.The sentiment and snowmen are from the Please Let It Snow Set.
The sentiment was embossed along with the sprinkling of snow.

I stamped the sentiment from the Please Snow Set and cut the edge with a Martha Stewart 
Snowflake punch.Inside the doors the snowflake was embossed and the little 
snowman from the Christmas Selection Set was stamped colored and embossed with a Dotted Swiss
 folder. The Sentiment if from the  You're An Angel Set also embossed with the Dotted Swiss folder.

My FOSTV teamies have Really cool cards, 
you will want to stop by and check them out!!

Friday is here...

And that means it is time for Tutorial Time with Speedy TV. 
Today our tutorial is brought to us by Lois Bak. We are making wreaths 
from punched pieces. I decided to stray a bit from using leaves or branches and 
used different snowflakes and stars for mine. After using a couple different 
Marvy, Martha Stewart and Punch Bunch punches I punched my pieces fromt
non traditional colors of peach and aqua and
 then added some glimmer to them with Stickles.
 A couple buttons, crystals and a bow finish my wreath off. 
The background was embossed with snowflakes
 and the wreath attached. The sentiment is from the Poinsettia Blooms Set. 
All was matted onto a piece of peach SU card stock.
My teammates have lots of beautiful ideas for you, so stop by and join out Challenge.

Tuesday Throwdown Challenge Today....

Team B's turn and we are challenging you to used Swirls and Pearls. Our Sponsor is Sweet & Sassy and they have generously supplied us with images.

I have used Sweet Cocoa colored and cut out! Isn't just the cutest little image, perfect for Christmas. Decided I had better get started on Christmas cards since it is just around the corner LOL!! I embossed my background with a  Swirls folder and added pearls to some of the swirls. In the pic the pearls look almost like a bead but really they are pearls!! The dp was a scrap that I wacked on an angle and stitched on. The perfect mat for my sweet little image. I actually used foam dots for the top part of the cup so as to give it more of a cup like dimension. Decided I would leave to front clean and add the sentiment on the inside.

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!!
