Girl Time (DT) DTDF

Morning all, I'm here today with my DIES TO DIE FOR make and something all
us ladies need from time to time - a little pampering session.
I'm fairly sure I'd be the little mite at the front!

I have used:

Image has been painted with Distress Inks (ReInkers)
and the sentiment comes with the image stamp
and I finished off with an eyelet set with my Crop-a-Dile plus a little bit of ribbon, after all, what's a good bookmark without some ribbon

To get that "one size up" layer, I simply laid the die I had used on to the back of the patterned paper, ran around it with a pencil and then cut it out by hand.  Sometimes the gaps in sizing between dies is just that wee bit too big for the look you want!

Wishing you all a relaxing weekend.

Hugs, Squirrel xx

Gorgeous colouring and a fab tip about using the die. I often just try to cut around it with a craft knife, but find it moves as I cut and my shape gets distorted. It's a fab image, but I'm not sure I'd be eating the cucumber myself. Unless it was covered in chocolate (and never mind the cucumber).... Mmmmmm.

Ha! I love this image. I'd rather eat the cucumber myself but getting pampered sounds devine. I stopped telling people I was getting a massage because it isn't the lie back and relax massage. It is the "let me beat this one muscle in your body until you cry" kind. Now I tell them I go for Physical Therapy. It's wicked. It's painful. They don't feed me cucumbers. I may be able to use my shoulder again someday though. So, there is that.
