whimsical wednesdays fall cuties

happy wednesday :) this week over at WW cathryn has set our fun challenge to include an animal  on our project and of course we have our awesome sponsor for the month ,  patsy from prairiebirdboutique with my favorite crinkle ribbon  to add to our project. make sure to check out what the rest of the DT have created.

for todays challenge i made napkin rings by recycling a paper towel holder. my bestie bud rose made the cloth napkins for me arent they pretty! . she got cream cheese swirl  brownies and choc chip cookies and pie crust encased choc chip cookies in trade ;)   i love the rustic look this gives my holders. thank you so much rose i love these! 

                       i used my cricut and create a critter cartridge to make the turkeys.

                                     heres the other next to a regular sized dinner plate.  
  for this one i dolled her up in a lil pink hat and added a flower. i added white and orange           crinkle ribbon  from prairiebirdboutique
the leaves are from cuttlebug i colored them in with tim holtz distress stains and added  distress stickles.the white crinkle ribbon is from PBB i added paper wraphia which i purchased from the kraft outlet.

 some  crinkle ribbon  in orange 

 added a few other lil extras too.
i used white crinkle ribbon on this its hard to see in pics its by the handmade paper button i made
the pumpkin is cuttlebug cut and emboss die i just otherwise adhered on some raffia in cream and orange, glued a button to a craft pick, painted a  corrugated cardboard piece then applied distress stain and stickles to it.. just add on on whatever suits ya.

heres a back view  

again i want to thank prairie bird boutique for sponsoring us this entire month. ive enjoyed using your gorgeous ribbon :)  youll see more of it in different shades in later posts :)  be sure to go check out patsys shop 

i also want to share another card using stamps from another of our sponsors tanner from mrcricutcrazy

just like last weeks card i used stamps from the simply everything vol.1  set
the fish and the sentiment. 
i used my cricut and create a critter cartridge for the fishbowl and its contents.
i added distress stickles on the sand cut, added cloud9 raindots for the bubbles and robyns nest dewdrops in the corners.  i added colorbox fluid chalk and my singo pen to the mix :)
i put this on one of those action wobblys ( thank you so very much stephanie !!)  i love these! 
wish i could show it in action :) trust me tho these are a must have!
