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!

Brianna The Butterfly (DT) Dies To Die For

Morning all, so sorry that this is a later post than usual - I fell asleep in the armchair last night and didn't have the energy to do it before bed, and this morning I had a haircut at silly o'clock.  Still, better late than never!

I have a bit of a tropical colourfest for you today

So, for this colourful little lady I have used

Brianna is mostly painted with Distress Inks (ReInkers) but I have used a few
Polychromos Pencils on her wings just to get a deeper tone to the shading

Hope your weekend is just as vibrant - happy UK Bank Holiday!

Hugs to all

AYLI (DT) Flora or Fauna

'ello my darlin's, how are you today?

So, it's time for another challenge from the talented team at AS YOU LIKE IT and this fortnight's theme is Flora or Fauna.

I do seem to create an awful lot more fauna than flora cards, and I find it is difficult to cuddle a flower, so I guess it has to be fauna for me, although I'm not sure that I want this particular chap on my lap or curled up on the bed

and of course the bit you all want to know is the sponsor of the challenge

Oh Gnome - You DIdn't?! (DT) DTDF

Morning all, it's a chasing-her-tail type of Squirrel today, I'm running a bit behind

Anyhoo, I'm here with a little Bella fun for you

So, what I have used

I just love that snail's face!

and of course the whole image was plastered with Distress Inks (ReInkers)

I made the big flower using a Die-Namics set but I can't tell you what it is as I bought it unlabelled in a destash, but it makes me think of a Dianthus with the frilly petal edges

Best Friends (DT) DTDF

Hello peeps, how are we all today?  Ready for the weekend?  I'm not sure what to do first, there is a pile of chores waiting to be done, sigh.  Ah, what the heck, I think I shall get inky later instead.

As an only child, I really do treasure my friends, and friends are always
a fabulous reason for making a card, it doesn't matter if there is no actual occasion, just being able
to celebrate having wonderful friends is enough surely?!

AYLI (DT) Pink or Blue

Hello everyone, it's time for another challenge over at AS YOU LIKE IT and this time our theme is
Pink or Blue (and why)

I do like pink, and I do like blue (blimey, that sounds like a supermarket advert), but if I had to choose one colour to have around me all the time then it would have to be cool, serene and soothing blue.

So for this little one I have used
Painted with Distress Inks (ReInkers)
Sentiment is with the Rain or Shine stamp set
Matting layer coloured with Cobalt Blue Copic

and that's it, a clean and simple card

The sponsor of this challenge is Kinda Cute by Patricia Alvarez
who is providing a prize of 3 images from her store:

Whatever your preference, pink or blue, please do pop on over to the challenge and share it with us!

Hugs to all

DTDF (DT) Gnome Home

Hello peeps, are you ready for your (UK) Bank Holiday Weekend?  It looks like we are about to get some decent sunshine too so that will top up the Vitamin D levels nicely - it could explain why I've had such a run of catching colds lately (yes, yet another one, sigh)

Anyhoo, the DTFT girls are spending today in Birmingham at the Papercraft & Stamping Show at the National Motorcycle Museum, do pop in and say hello if you are in the area.

I'm not going to be anywhere so exotic, possibly as far as the back garden, but before I do that I had better get on with sharing some Stamping Bella fun with you

I always struggle to find a suitable stamp for new home cards, but that problem
has now been solved, and solved with style!

Isn't this just so brilliant?!

So, the lovely things used to make this one are

I have painted the image with Distress Inks (ReInkers), with a little Polychromos for details, and I used Distress Oxides for the cloud stencilling

Well, that's me done, apart from wishing you all a very happy weekend
