As You Like It Challenge (DT) Warm or Cool

Hello, and here I am to tell you about another challenge from AS YOU LIKE IT!

The theme for this fortnight is
Warm or Cool Colours

Although I love the warm colours (you kinda have to go warm with many of the furry critters) I do love the sophistication of cool colours too, and cool seems to work so well for the male cards.  Blues, greens, and lilacs are so soothing.

So for this little cutie
Wild Rose Studio - Tilly With Presents
painted in all the cool colour Distress Inks (ReInkers) I had to hand
Blue/Grey/Green papers from a pad I bought in The Works
Gift tag die
Sentiment from Personal Impressions

The sponsor for this challenge is

So, if you are feeling chilly this winter, you can warm up, and if you are like me with personal tropical moments, you can cool down!  Don't forget to tell us about why warm or cool is your favourite choice for your make.

Hugs to all

As You Like It Challenge (DT) Anything Goes

Hello peeps, hope you are well on this blustery January day.  Question of the week:  Why do local authorities design wheely-bins to fall over in one puff of air when they are empty???

I shall leave you to ponder that one and move on to our new AS YOU LIKE IT theme which is
Anything Goes!

Since re-learning to crochet last March, I have slowly been building up the courage to try amigurumi (small critters) and finally I settled on this pattern from MisAdventures of Alice for a Squidlet Ⓒ (ok to recreate but not to claim as your own design, and not to sell) to attempt.  The first (pink) was a challenge but they have gotten easier and now they number 6 (Squidlet 006 is away on a secret spying mission and was therefore unavailable for the family photo).  My favourites are the chubby (out of focus, sorry) white one, and the little multi-colour chap just above his head.  The blue/grey one in the centre of the back row is normally my work desk buddy but he begged to come home just for a couple of days.  Apparently nothing much happens in the office once the cleaners have left for the night.

I won't tell you how long the first one took, but I have got them down to about two hours apiece now.

Let your imagination run wild and join us with your creativity for our Anything Goes theme which is sponsored by POLKADOODLES

Thank You (DT) As You Like It Challenge

Well, here we are then, 2020!  If you are not sick of hearing it, HAPPY NEW YEAR to you all.

The change of year doesn't change the alternate Thursdays so here we go with the first
challenge of 2020 for AS YOU LIKE IT

There is no choice to be made this time, we would just like to see your thank you

I was dragged up properly and taught that a thank you costs nothing, but means so much.
I am still a firm believer in that.

Should I have warned you about the colour bomb?!

Lovely things used for this are:
Sunny Studio 6x6 Jewel Tone papers
Lots of Distress Inks for painting and stencilling

Our sponsor for this theme is

I do hope that you will find time to join us in the next fortnight.  We have an exciting year of challenges ahead of us (I know, I have seen the list!)

Hugs to all
