I Hate Red!!

Hello chaps!  It's official, I hate red ink!  I have been making the unmentionables this weekend - and they have involved a lot of red (Cola Cola has a lot to answer for).  For my next one I shall be going back to the traditional pre-advertising green, so there!

I received some very happy Happy Mail on Saturday and just had to get stamping.......

Sorry for the poor quality photo - there's not been a lot of sunshine!

Thank you to the wonderful Tracy at Dies to Die For for pulling out the stops on this for me.

Image stamps and sentiment are from the MFT Jingle All The Way set
(yes, I know it's like hens teeth, still can't find the dies so had to fussy cut - was at risk of turning reindeer into a labrador late Saturday afternoon)
Painted with Distress Inks (ReInkers)
Circle die from CC Designs to create the aperture
Tree papers from LOTV/Nitwits but now discontinued (sad face)

Hugs to all
Squirrel xx

Psst:  Rosie news!  She sat on my lap for the very first time at the weekend.  Voluntarily!

Whether you hate red or not, this is a fabulous card, love it ALL and the red!

Kat W said...

Well I LOVE red so there! I think I am a bit of an odd fish because I love colouring red which most people hate! It can bleed very easily when using Copics but you can get such lovely shading!

Well, this is a gorgeous card anyway, such a cute design and I'm so happy no reindeer were harmed in the making of it!

I shall watch for the green now....

Big hugs, Kat xx

Annette said...

Stunning colouring (and your red looks perfect hun). I love the labrador, sorry reineer, too (mwahahah!). The fussy cutting is perfect (you have the patience of a saint). Shame this card won't suit me though. I'm definitely on the naughty list (at least you're keeping me company though LOL)
Good news about the lap warmer. Just in time for winter.
ps - I'm assuming she wanted your chair!

Judith said...

I just love this Squirrel - perfectly Christmas - if you still want that die - drop me an email - i will probably be visiting the MFT shop in Florida when I go next month and I could pick one up for you!! hugs judith xx

This is beautiful Squirrel - I am a very bad person because I have this set and it is still in my 'to do' mountain! Your gorgeous card has inspired me to shuffle it to the top.
