Some You Win .....

Afternoon all - hope you are ok and enjoying this sunny Saturday!  We've been out in the garden this afternoon.  What started as a pruning session of a shrub in the side border ended up as removing the self-seeded laurels from behind the shed, a hacking back of the out-of-control rambling rose, striping our side of the fence of next-door's rampaging ivy, me getting whacked in the face with a tree branch and picking up a hidden slug with bare hands.  Blerrrrgh!

Anyhoo, a couple of cards for you today at opposite ends of the contentment scale.  The first is for the Anything Goes challenge at Ready Teddy Go


This is Party Paws from Crafters Companion which you can find here
Painted with Distress Inks (ReInkers)
Black Soot, Weathered Wood, Spun Sugar, Worn Lipstick, Mustard Seed, Gathered Twigs, Old Paper
Papers are from an old pad of DCWV called Far East
Sentiment is LOTV from the Scroll Sentiments set

And Some You Lose .....

This one is for the Addicted to CAS challenge of Friend


This is the Thinking Of You stamp from LOTV
Part painted in Distress Inks (ReInkers) and part paper pieced
Postage Stamp X-Cuts die
All papers from scraps box

This was my third attempt at this one - all I salvaged from the first two tries was the little bear in his envelope.  I was determined that I wanted this to be a postage stamp for a "first class friend".  I still don't think it has worked that well.  Hey ho.

Hugs, Squirrel xx
