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!

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/
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!

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.

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
