Fall Friends (DT) Dies To Die For

Morning all, so sorry for being late - had a new oven delivered this morning, earlier than expected, and it rather caught me on the hop!  I am now planning what I can cook on the hob for dinner tonight so I don't have to use the oven.  I think my reading material for the next week will be "timer instructions", or "electronic programming" as they call it.  Eeeeek.

One of the delivery guys, having removed the old oven from its housing, asked how old it was.  On being told it was 30, he made me feel awful by saying "that's older than me".

Anyhoo, although the weather is turning colder, we are still officially in autumn so I thought I would
share these gorgeous autumn girls with you today.

So this is

Digi or Rubber (DT) As You Like It Challenge

Morning all, well would you look at that, Thursday again already!

So, over at the AS YOU LIKE IT CHALLENGE, the new theme for the next fortnight is
Digi Or Rubber (which is your favourite, don't forget to tell us why)

I have tried digi stamps, but for me I love the physicality of rubber, the actual process of rummaging through my collection, picking and choosing, selecting one and then putting it back, and eventually with the chosen one, getting it beautifully inky and creating the impression on a pristine
piece of paper.  Digi, for me, just doesn't feel like crafting.

So, for this little chap...
My Favourite Things - BB14 I Knead You
My Favourite Things - BB33 Cool Cat
MFT 6x6 Dots and Stripes Confection
aaaaaaaaaaand I have no idea what the orange paper is

Anyhoo, our sponsor/prize for this challenge is a £10 voucher from

Sweet Holiday Penguins (DT) Dies To Die For

Morning all, hope you are well.

Today I shall mostly be crawling about on the kitchen floor with a scrubbing brush (should have done it last week but was full of snoddy gerbs) as, wait for this, the new oven is due to arrive next week!
Our old oven is now celebrating it's 30th birthday and it is running out of bits to drop off or stop working so the Toad made the decision to get a new one in plenty of time for me to adjust to having a working fan again so I have stopped burning things by the time Christmas gets here!

Anyhoo, speaking of Christmas, today, I bring you something black, white, cute, and smelling of fish

These little guys have been so popular since their release!

Pingus were all painted with Distress Inks (ReInkers)

PS.  I fibbed about the fish

Santa & Friends (DT) Dies To Die For

Hello chaps, as you read this I shall be sneaking up on the bathroom scales, and when I have
recovered I shall be off for a tail trim and colour.

In the USA, I think they are called cubicles, a very small office space within a bigger office - here it's
called a pokey corner.  In my overcrowded pokey corner, there isn't much room for
festive decorations, so I have made this mini-banner to hang from the hook
that currently holds my calendar!

The images have been painted with Distress Inks (ReInkers) and, if you squint, you might
just about make out the Glamour Dust on Santa's hat, jacket trim, and boot tops.  I know Annette will be shocked, but that is REAL ribbon through the loop at the top.

Hugs to all
