As You Like It (DT) Your Style - FAF or CAS

Hello all, welcome to Thursday (and trust me, you are welcome to most of them, I never could get the hang of Thursdays [to quote the great Arthur Dent])

Anyhoo, alternate Thursdays always have a boost with a challenge from the AS YOU LIKE IT team and this time we are asking you to share your preference of style with us - FAF or CAS.
It is important that you tell us about your choice to qualify for the sponsor's prize.

I have tried to make FAF, truly I have, more than once, but each time they have turned out like an explosion in an embellishment factory rather than a beautifully created piece, so I'm guessing my style is definitely CAS, sometimes more CAS than others!

So this little cutie is most definitely CAS and only uses one stamp set!

So come on, get your style on and do remember to tell us all about it

You Color My World (DT) Dies To Die For

HOLLLLLLIDAAAAAAAAAAY!  Yes, today chaps, you find me at the start of a week's holiday, whoop whoop!  It has been a long time coming, that is for sure.

Now, I know there is a u missing from the title, but if you put Colour into the search box, you won't find this gorgeous little lady!  I never did really understand why, if the British sent so many settlers to the US, their spelling is so quirky!

and that's it, simple is as simple does, apart from a splash of Distress Inks (ReInkers)

MFT Superstar 2019 - Clean And Simple Genius

Hello chaps, yes, no need to check your calendar, it really is Sunday and I am posting.

Friday saw the launch of the 2019 MFT Superstar Contest - there are three catergories, as before, Colouring Virtuoso, Clean And Simple Genius, and Innovation Master.

In past years I have entered two of the three categories, but this year I am being kind to myself and only entering one.  This is my entry for the Clean And Simple Genius category.

All the products used are MFT of course, and were purchased in the UK from Dies To Die For
(which is where the links will take you)

Cuddly bear painted with Distress Inks (ReInkers) as watercolours.

OK, so I am off to link this up to the contest before my nerve cracks.

Hugs to all

Sweet Birthday Wishes (DT) Dies To Die For

Hello chaps!  I may have overslept a "tiny" bit this morning, it has been a full-on work week and I was verrrrrry tired.  Could possibly have managed another couple of hours, but, you know, things to do, places to be and all that.

Anyhoo, you all know my fondness for Birdie Brown designs so I was
overjoyed when I managed to get my paws on this set - it's a reissue of an older set, with updated sentiments, and I was so excited when I found out about it.  I think it will be getting a LOT of use.

Lawn Fawn 6x6 Perfectly Plaid - Spring (can't find on website now)

Little girl is painted in Distress Inks (ReInkers) as watercolours and I blended the
background in Distress Inks from the pads using the Picket Fence brushes.

Have a lovely weekend all

To Santa or Not To Santa (DT) As You Like It

So, we are almost halfway through September, and already the C word is on the cards ..... well, hopefully it will be on your cards anyway!

AS YOU LIKE IT challenge have a new theme for you and it is
To Santa or Not To Santa (on a Christmas card)

I do like a lot of the happy, chubby, smiley Satan Santa stamps, I have a favourite set that comes out year after year, but there are so many other adorable stamps available that it is hard to choose, but if there is a cute and furry critter involved then I am sold!

I've been waiting to use this stamp since it arrived in my Christmas stocking last year!
Poppystamps Jumbled Merry Christmas die
Hobbycraft snowflake stamps
Christmas patterned kraft card from The Works
Red card from Rymans
Kraft base card from Hobbycraft

Miles has been painted with Distress Inks (ReInkers)

The winner of this challenge will be invited to be a Guest Designer with us during October!

Hugs to all

Call The Shots (DT) Dies To Die For

Happy Saturday to you all!

I'll be honest, I have been a bit overwhelmed with the CUTENESS of the most recent Birdie Brown stamps from MFT and I had to buy them all, but I am only just playing with last month's release (even though this month's has now arrived!)

Yes, I know she is supposed to be a doctor/nurse, but I thought she made a lovely vet too!

All the image bits painted with Distress Inks (ReInkers)

Have yourselves a happy week.
