Challenge #66: CREATURES!!

 Welcome to another happy day at Use It Tuesday!

Our challenge this time is....

All creatures, big and small.
Ghosts, goblins and monsters if you're in the Halloween mood.
And if you're not, then bunnies, bears and bugs are okay too!

***REMEMBER: All of our challenges call for you to use your hoarded supplies! A challenge requirement is to tell us in your post what you used!***

Please link up using Inlinkz by noon EST on Friday November 1, 2013. No blog? No problem! Just use keyword USE066 when uploading to an online gallery and leave us a direct link so we can find your creation. (Linking tips are at the bottom of the post!)

Please make sure to mention you are playing along with a Use It Tuesday challenge (a link is great too!) so we know you are participating.

As always, one lucky participant will be randomly chosen to be a featured guest designer in an upcoming challenge!

Here's the menagerie our Design Team rounded up for you this week:

Rachel leads us off with the king of the Sahara! This digi image was colored in pencils, a new technique she tried out. She used some scrap paper to make the card and added some gems, pearls and a sentiment stamp that have been in her stash for ages. 

  Valentina made this sweet owl treat holder with her silhouette cameo.  She gathered up old scrap paper pieces for this project and and also some "pretty old" ribbon.

Nicole documented a trip to a wildlife sanctuary with this pretty little layout. She challenged herself to get out some stashed stamp sets and use them, stamping them in three separate places on this project

Tammy skipped right past Halloween and moved on to Christmas! This ATC uses scraps and diecuts from her desk. The pearls and bling have been sitting pretty for awhile, waiting to be used. She also added some glossy accents to the bird.

Jessica A had some assistance with her background this week, from her young son. He's no hoarder, using bits and pieces from pretty much everything...including bits of packaging! The oldest thing he used has been in the leftovers bin for at least a year. Jessica then finished off the layout with pictures from their "Monsters University" movie date. 

Tracy scrapbooked her favorite creature, her dog. The patterned papers she chose are newer to the "craft stash" (under a year), but those dog themed stickers have been around for about 5 years. 

Jessica B kept it simple this week with this adorable card. She used this squirrel diecut and some Basic Grey paper that's "so old" it's single sided...probably about 4 years old now. 

Michele's used this Cosmo Cricket bunny sticker that's been in her stash for 2 1/2 years. She paired it with some "Hello" washi tape that she won from the same company over a year ago.

And our Guest Designer this week is Ursula Uphof. Ursula used her hoarded flowers for this pretty little project. They tend to collect in her craft space, since she's taken to making her own with dies and punches. She also used some pretty mesh trim across the middle of her card. Thanks for playing again, Ursula!!

Thanks once again to our amazing Design Team!
Now, show us what you've got!
