Sitting Pretty (DT) Dies To Die For

  Hello chaps, hope you have something lovely planned for this super sunny Saturday!

Well, Spring is well and truly in the air now (you should have seen me scraping the frost off the car yesterday morning), flowers are blooming and the trees are greening

So for this floral explosion I have used

I used Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens for the inking up on this one.  I'm not sure what's going on with the photo as my camera doesn't seem to like a particular shade of pink that I used for the right hand tulips and her t-shirt, IRL they are very definitely pink!

Favourite Season - Spring or Summer (DT) As You Like It Challenge

 Well here we are again on a new Thursday which means a new

Our theme this time around is
Your Favourite Season - Spring or Summer
(please explain your choice)

Oddly, being a Summer baby, I much prefer Spring.  It's fresh and clean, smells wonderful, and is full of new life and bright light.  The bonus is that it is too early for wasps.

Painted with Distress Inks (ReInkers)

Looking forward to seeing you there.

Adorable Adventures (DT) Dies To Die For

  Assuming you're not still in a queue for Primark or Debenhams, good morning - honestly, I think the world has gone mad.  Rushing into town to buy a new pair of flip-flops has been pretty low on my agenda for this week.

Anyhoo, I am here with another Birdie Brown make.

Stuff used

Whole scene coloured with Distress Inks (ReInkers) and Distress Ink pads.

Knitting Dandies (DT) Dies To Die For

  Hello chaps, Saturday is here again, hurrah!

Now, I am useless with knitting (I am much more proficient at crochet, although a beginner still), I get into all sorts of tangles, so this stamp really caught my eye and tickled my funny bone.

Sentiment comes with the Dandies stamp.

As You Like It Challenge (DT) Stencils or Embossing

 Yoo-hoo!  Happy Thursday chaps, hope you are all ok.  I was supposed to be taking my Oldies for their second vaccine this coming weekend, but mum took a call on Monday to say that the vaccines had arrived so would they like to attend on Tuesday.  As I was working, Mr Toad became their Uber driver for the afternoon - he was gone an absolute age.  Looks like everyone who was booked in for the weekend was called in for today, he said he had never seen so many pensioners in one place!  Anyhoo, the relief is that they are done for now, let's just see what happens about boosters in the autumn.

Right then, it is AS YOU LIKE IT CHALLENGE day, and we have a new theme over there for you of Stencil or Embossing (your favourite, but please explain why)

I haven't used an embossing folder for aaaaaages, in fact I think my collection is suffocating under cobwebs.  I do seem to have developed a fascination for stencils though, I love that you can add depth and interest without adding too many layers or papers.

So for this happy little chap I have used:
Scrap of MFT 6x6 paper Tiny Check Brights
A sentiment from an unpackaged old set that could be Hero Arts
Magazine freebie stencil
and lots of happy coloured Distress Inks (ReInkers)

Our fabby sponsor for this challenge is

Looking forward to seeing you at the challenge

Easter Wishes (DT) Dies To Die For

 Hello peeps, so here we are today on Holy Saturday (yep, Easter Saturday is actually next weekend) - you learn something new every day!

I do make a lot of cute Easter cards, but just occasionally there is a need for something more traditional, but why not mix the traditional with a little bit of cute.

A bit of masking, and a good slosh of Distress Inks (ReInkers)
and that really is it, simple but sweet

Whatever you are up to this weekend, take care, don't go crazy, and stay safe
