DTDF (DT) Polar Bear Pals

Morning all, me again with another post for the DIES TO DIE FOR inspiration blog.

Am I detecting a nip in the air yet?
OK, I know it is the end of October, and the clocks go back this weekend, but I'm
not sure it is really chilly enough for these two yet.

Lawn Fawn: Mini Snowflakes

The only additions to this were the Distress Inks (ReInkers), Hunkydory holographic card and
some patient fussy cutting


Hugs to all

In The Pink (DT - belated) Ribbons/Bows

Okay, so I missed getting this made in time for the IN THE PINK challenge of RIBBONS/BOWS (Breast Cancer Awareness) so I'm pretending that this was meant to be a midway reminder!

As this awful disease has no boundaries on age, I used this particular
image to highlight the fact that it can affect young and old alike

AYLI (DT) People or Animals?

I'm sure it is a question many of us have asked ourselves, which do I prefer, people or animals.  

Well, that is the theme for this fortnights challenge over at AS YOU LIKE IT but you will of course have to explain yourself!

I do seem to have used a lot of people images on my cards lately, but I prefer the animals, in real life too.  They tend to appeal to everyone, and the same image can be adjusted for either a male or female recipient, and the majority of them are sooooo cute!


I have used:
Clearly Besotted: Little Donkey
Clearly Besotted: Say It's Christmas
Die-Namics: A2 Stitched Rectangle Stax Set 1 & 2
Distress Inks (ReInkers) & Polychromos Pencils

and the sponsor for this challenge is

Prize is 3 images of winners choice.

Looking forward to seeing your entries.

Hugs, Squirrel xx

DTDF (DT) Puddle Jumping Twila

Hello chaps, hope this Saturday finds you fine and dandy.

Sorry for the absence from blogland and social media over the past ten days, I've been a
"bit" under the weather, but am hopefully now on the mend.

Speaking of under the weather, my DIES TO DIE FOR make today shows that
even the weather needn't get you down

With the right pair of wellies, a girl can do anything!

And the lovely things used are

Image has been painted, as always, with Distress Inks (ReInkers)
and I used the Faded Jeans Distress Ink pad for the clouds

AYLI (DT) Flowers or Ribbons

Hello gang, hope this finds you well.  There's another new challenge starting
over at AS YOU LIKE IT today and the theme for this fortnight is
Your Favourite - Flowers or Ribbons
(and purrrleeeeeeeeease tell us why)

OK, so, here's the dilemma, I don't often use ribbons or flowers!
I have tried in the past, but "dog's dinner" comes to mind, froo-froo just isn't
my style.  So, I furtled about in the stash to see which of the two evils I have the
most of, and was horrified to find a rather sizeable collection of flowers, so I thought I had better use some!

The lovely things I have used
Stamping Bella Tiny Townies Garden Girls: Rose (stamp and die)
Nitwits paper pad (LOTV) Always & Forever
LOTV Krafty Christmas
Die-Namics Bold Stripes Cover Up
LOTV Circular Sentiments
Wild Orchid Crafts - small flowers and rose leaves
Image painstakingly painted with Distress Inks (ReInkers)

Our sponsor for this challenge is

Crafts U Love
£10 voucher

and all that remains is to wish our beloved leader, Annette, a VERY happy birthday for today!

Hope you will have a rummage in your own stash and then share your
fabulous makes with us.

Hugs to all
Squirrel xx
