As You Like It Challenge (DT) New or Recycled

 Sorry that I have been low-key for a while, I've just had so much else filling my time that my poor old blog has been sorely neglected.

Anyhoo, it's time for another new theme over at AS YOU LIKE IT CHALLENGE and
this time it is NEW OR RECYCLED (pleeeeeeeeeeeasse tell us why)

So, I'm really keen on recycling at home - our blue bin is always packed, and if I can use something again for a new purpose then that's a win BUT for crafting, I admit it, I do love using new stuff - everything fresh and shiny new.

For this romantic wittle wabbit I have used
Whimsy Stamps Wee Bunny
A selection of my precious NitWits papers
MFT sentiments
and a stencil of roses
All inked up with Distress Inks (ReInkers and Oxides)

Our sponsor of this theme is

I hope you can come over to the challenge and join us.

As You Like It Challenge (DT) Favourite Non-Easter Easter Character

 So, here we are again, almost officially Spring!  And in the Spring mood, the AS YOU LIKE IT CHALLENGE team are asking for you to share your
Favourite Non-Easter Easter Character (no chicks, no bunnies) and remember that you must tell us why you made your choice to qualify for a sponsor prize

As you are probably learning to expect from me, I have gone a bit off-piste with this but simply because I have fallen in love with these Dustin Pike gargoyles and am trying to use them for every possible occasion!

Clearly Besotted grass border die
Mixture of MFY 6x6 papers

 So, I'm sat here swearing at the laptop (situation normal) as I'm trying to transfer a chunk of photos from my phone to the hard-drive, and I have spotted a few cards that I haven't posted yet, mainly because they were for customer orders rather than DT posts, so I thought I'd drip feed them to you.

You will notice that they will appear to be out of season!

This one was an order from a friend who wanted a card for her brother who had his birthday at Halloween, and she wanted to make something of that.

So we have a real mash-up of products used here
Dracula is from CC Designs
painted in Distress Inks (ReInkers)
Oval dies are Crealies
Happy is half of a Impression Obsession Happy Easter die
40 is MFT Die-Namics stitched numbers
Papers are whatever was to hand in the right colours
Goo border is a Martha Stewart punch

Apparently he was thrilled with it and, rumour has it, it is still on display even now.

Hope you have a fab weekend.

As You Like It (DT) Interactive Or Not

 Well hellooooo and welcome to another Thursday!

Over at As You Like It this time the new challenge is
Interactive (at least one moving part) or Not

For me, it's a not.  I have tried many, many, times with the ol' interactive but we really don't see eye to eye so for me, I'll stick with what I do best thanks.

I've used one of the Rockabilly Gals from CC Designs
and the sentiment that comes with the set
A stencil by Stamperia and a lot of Distress Ink (ReInkers)
