WELCOME!


Welcome to Squirrel's slightly nutty world of rubber stamping, papercraft, cats, Formula 1 and a variety of other off-the-wall topics. It's fabulous to see you and I hope you enjoy your time here. Please do pop back and visit me again soon!

Winter Wonderland (DT) Christmas Teddy

Blimey, nearly didn't make it to today - our 19 year old faithful microwave decided he'd had enough last night and went out with a bang and a LOT of foul smelling smoke - spent last evening with all the windows wide open so the wind could clear the fumes.  We all have sort throats this morning!  Guess I know what we will be doing tomorrow, yep, microwave shopping.  I am a little sad at it's passing as it was a house warming present from my parents when I moved into my tiny little terraced house all those years ago.  He survived the move to here and even allowed Toad to operate his little buttons.  Oh how I shall miss that ear piercing bleep.  But, the good news is that it is Friday again, wheeeeeeeeee, and that means ..... WINTER WONDERLAND!  Thanks to everyone who joined in the Candy Cane challenge - the winner and Top 3 will be posted on the Winter Wonderland blog this Sunday.

So, what do we have for you this week?  We have a theme of Christmas Teddy, how cute is that?!  The DT have created some beautiful inspiration for you in case you should be stuck for ideas, but with this theme I think we will have a lot of entries.

And we are sponsored this week by

and Teri is generously offering the winner their choice of four digis from her shop. If you haven't been to visit her shop recently then I can tell you that she has some fabulous new images in store.

Here is my DT card for this week:

This is a Tina Wenke stamp and I think it has a wonderful nostalgic feel.  I've coloured with Distress Inks (ReInkers and Markers) and teamed teddy up with a mixture of Christmas scraps papers from my box.  I think the red was a magazine freebie and the green may be Dovecraft.  The gold foiled sentiment came with a pad of papers.

I shall be looking forward to seeing all your teddies at the challenge during the week.  Have fun!

I must admit that I got a real giggle out of your report on the demise of your old faithful microwave. I thing it was "even allowed Toad to operate his little buttons." Then I must admit, with shamed face hanging down, that "oh how I shall miss that ear piercing beep." got me laughing out loud!! I'm sorry for your loss...(grin). Just remember that the news ones are much faster...so don't burn something to a crisp! Seriously, hope that the sore throats have gone by now.
