One Layer or Many (DT) As You Like It Challenge

Morning all, well, it is another Thursday, and I'm guessing you will know what that means?
Yups, time for a new challenge over with the AS YOU LIKE IT CHALLENGE

Our theme for this fortnight is
One Layer or Many (and please tell us why)

I'm more of a middle ground kind of girl, two or three layers at most, but this time I
chose to challenge myself with a one layer make, mainly because I really wanted
to use some of my new kraft cardstock

So this cute is
The sentiment is an old one by Kaisercraft

For The Birthday Girl (DT) Dies To Die For

Morning all, a very weary Squirrel today, but on the up side, I have a four day weekend!

Did the FaceBookers of you see that my mousy make for DTDF last week was "Whimsy Stamps Sunday Spotlight"?  (cheesy grin)

Anyhoo, today's make isn't mousy or cheesy, but it's still pretty darned cute.

So, ingredients

Wishing you all a wonderful weekend!

Lee Holland Mouse On Flower (DT) Dies To Die For

Morning all, pleeeeeeeeeeeeeeease tell me that this is actually the weekend!

I didn't receive any flowers for Valentine's this week - vegetation in this house either gets nibbled by the cat, or quickly shrivels.  I'm not good with indoor florals.  However, this little chap seems to have developed better green paws than I have!

MFT Safari Friends (sentiment)

As usual, the image has been painted with Distress Inks (ReInkers) and I just used a simple single hole punch to add coordinating dots of colour.

Have a wonderful weekend everyone!

As You Like It (DT) Birthday or Christmas

So, whilst ever other challenge in the world has probably gone for a Love or Valentine theme, the team at AS YOU LIKE IT have gone a little bit different!

Our theme for this fortnight is Birthday or Christmas (your favourite and why)

I am actually still twitching from the volume of Christmas cards that I made last year, so before I dive in and start the process all over again, I am really enjoying having some time to make fun and happy birthday cards.

Love this CC Designs stamp - Nancy With Cupcake
Teamed up with some gorgeous papers from Sunny Studio
a text die from Simon Says Stamp
and a frilly border from Crafters Companion

Nancy has been painted with Distress Inks (ReInkers) and some brown drawing ink pens for her hair

The sponsor of this challenge is
Lawn Fawn

Looking forward to seeing your wonderful makes.

Saddle Up (DT) Dies To Die For

Morning all, hope this finds you well.

I'm probably going to be spending the day trying to sort out my increasingly frail but frustratingly stubborn Oldies and attempting to persuade them that they need some additional help in their lives.

Anyhoo, before I go off to tear my hair out, here is a birthday celebration

So for this birthday celebration I have used

The corner dies are Whimsy Shapeology and it looks as if they have finally retired.
All images painted with Distress Inks (ReInkers)

Hugs to all

Happy Hippos (DT) Dies To Die For

Hello peeps, it's been a funny old week (more about that another time) so I am popping by with a very simple but, hope you will agree, sweet make for you

So I have used

Image painted with Distress Inks (ReInkers) as watercolours, and I used a smidge of Distress Oxide for the clouds.

Those must be super strength helium balloons!
