 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.
Visit the DT blogs for some great inspiration and more details on their projects, then leave them a little comment love while you're there, won't you?  We all love getting feedback, right?

Our designers love to visit your blogs and leave comments, therefore we kindly ask that you

turn off Word Verification!  They won't be commenting if it's on.

Our sponsor this week is:
Oak Pond Creations

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.

Please welcome our GDT for the month of August, Christine Neal
 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!

Thank you Oak Pond Creations for providing our DT with the following images to use!

(see you soon)
