Party On .... But Not Too Long

 Aren't we all our own worst critics?  I know I am, and am particularly hard on
myself at times.  However, now and again I make something that I am really chuffed
with, and this is one of those - it very nearly didn't get sent to the recipient (but
she's special so it did get there!)

So, I used one of the Rockabilly Gals from CC Designs
painted her with Distress Inks (ReInkers) and fussy cut
For the background, I cut a stencil using an older Spellbinders Nestabilities die
and then stencilled through that with Gina K Daisy Chain stencil with a
Distress Ink Oxide pad
Corners done with an old Woodware punch
and simply layered with some pink paper from my stash
A couple of sentiments from the MFT Sassy Pants Birthday Greetings 3 set

and that's it, it took all afternoon, but I really, really, enjoyed making it

As You Like It Challenge (DT) Boys or Girls

 So of course it's Thursday, they happen every week, lol, but every other Thursday means a new theme from As You Like It Challenge!

The theme this time round is
Your Favourite - Boys or Girls

The majority of my makes are for the ladies, but I really enjoy the ones for the fellas - they're not bothered about frills and flowers, and you can get away with a really cheesy sentiment.

I made this one for my brother-in-law and used
Stamping Bella Oddballs
Cave Couple and a dinosaur
Whimsy Stamps UGH die and
the sentiment is from a Whimsy Stamps Dinosaur Friends set
Papers are a mix of Honey Bee, Lawn Fawn, and The Works
Painted with Distress Inks (ReInkers)

As You Like It Challenge (DT) Spring or Summer

 Hello peeps, I hope you are all ok.

It's time for another challenge from the AS YOU LIKE IT CHALLENGE
and this time the theme is Spring or Summer
(please remember to explain your choice)

I hate summer!  It's too hot and sweaty, I get burned outside, it's too hot to sleep, nobody opens enough windows, and it's full of bugs.  There, I've said it.  I. Hate. Summer.
So I made a Spring card, because everything is still fresh, new, and delicate, and there are no wasps.

I've used an older stamp (rubber!) from Lili Of The Valley and
painted with Distress Inks (ReInkers)
This has a real Spring feel about it with all the sweet daisies
Sentiment is from an Easter set from Pretty Pink Posh
The squeak of pink matting layer is Lawn Fawn
