As You Like It Challenge (DT) Fur Feathers or Scales

 I wasn't going to mention this week's weather, but by crikey it has been exceptional - on Monday it was dear old Suffolk that broke the UK high temperature record (obviously exceeded on Tuesday), and I have to say I HAVE HATED EVERY SECOND OF IT!  The forecast for tomorrow is 19C and I cannot wait to be able to breathe again.

Anyhoo, it is time for a new theme at AS YOU LIKE IT CHALLENGE and this time
it is Your Favourite - Fur, Feathers, or Scales (and why)

Soft and fluffy fur!  I quite like feathers themselves, but am nervous of birds, they are so delicate, except for chickens, chickens are sneaky and evil.  Scales are attached to things that freak me out (sorry to the tortoises), so fur it is, it's soft, it's strokeable, it's warm, it's usually wrapped around something I'd like to cuddle.

For this one I have used the Bears set from CC Designs
painted her with Distress Inks (ReInkers)
teamed her with some papers from Lawn Fawn and Sunny Studio Designs
and a die from Crealies
Corner punch is unlabelled so can't tell you what that is

The sponsor for this challenge is the ever popular and talented

As You Like It Chalenge (DT) Warm or Cool Colours

 Yoo-hoo (waving madly), how are you?  I hope everyone is well.

It's time for another new theme from
and this time the theme is Warm or Cool Colours
(please tell us about your choice)

I had to have a think about this, because I like all colours, and I'm not afraid to mix it up, but on balance I seem to favour the cool shades more, the blues and purples.

So for this one I've used
MFT DieNamics Modern Serif Alphabet dies
A dotty background stencil, and while I was inking the stencil, I inked up some stripes
from which to cut the SNOW lettering
Sarah is painted with Distress Inks (ReInkers)
MFT 6x6 gingham paper
and I think the Let It Snow is MFT Snow Globe Sentiments (maybe)

In case you're really not sure what's hot and what's not, here's a simple colour wheel to help

And just before I go, our sponsor for this challenge is

Hope to see you there
