Winter Kisses (DT) Dies To Die For

Hello chaps, did you miss me last week?  Sorry about that, things all went a bit wobbly for a while.

Anyhoo, not to worry, here are some Winter Kisses for you.

Things used
I used the double stitched stax dies on this but the single stitched are

Image painted with Distess Inks (ReInkers).  I couldn't buy the die for this one so she has been fussy cut.

Family or Friends (DT) As You Like It Challenge

Well, here we are then, the final AS YOU LIKE IT CHALLENGE of 2020!

Our theme for this challenge is Family or Friends (who do you most like making cards for) - and please do remember to tell us why.

I like making family cards, but I really do enjoy making cards for friends, you always seem to be able to get away with that extra little bit of cheek or over the top bling (if bling is your style).  I made this one for a dear friend whose family are something of a challenge - I know she will appreciate the sentiment a lot.

I have used CC Designs Reindeer Swissie
and she has been painted with Distress Inks (ReInkers)
the sentiment is also CC Designs from an older set of sayings (red rubber, gasp)
and the papers are a mix of Dovecraft Back To Basics from Christmases past

And our sponsor for this challenge is

I do hope that you will be have to have some crafting time over the holidays and be able to pop over and join in the fun.

As You Like It Challenge - Inspired by Your Favourite Christmas Film

 Blimey, there aren't many Thursday left this year, and this is the penultimate

This time our theme is Inspired by Your Favourite Christmas Film

My favourite film, produced by Aardman Animations (creators of Wallace & Gromit) was released in 2011, so only 9 years ago, but I think I must have seen it a minimum of 15 times.  It has become a Christmas Eve tradition at Squirrel Towers that once work is over, we settle down with a cup of tea and a bun, and enjoy all over again the fun that is Arthur Christmas.

Things used
Penny Black stamp - Santa's Helper : 4359J
Impression Obsession - Merry Christmas : DIE330-R
Simple Stories 6x6 paper - Classic Christmas : #7322
Dovecraft 6x6 paper - Krafty Christmas

"Arthur" has been painted with Distress Inks (ReInkers)
