AYLI (DT) Pearls or Gems

So then crafters, the next fortnight's challenge over at AS YOU LIKE IT
Make us a project with your favourite and tell us all about it, particularly why you prefer one over the other

Easier said than done, I like them both - pearls for a more sophisticated and classy look, but for bright and blingy it has to be gems!

Adding gems to this (over the snowflake circles) seemed like a good idea at the time
until I realised just how many I was adding - and I still managed to miss one!

DTDF (DT) Beach Bunnies

So, what do you normally find on the beach?  Pebbles, sand, crabs, dead fish, yep, all of
those, occasional stray dogs, but bunnies must be quite rare, surely?

There must be some funny beaches over in the States, as where else could MFT have
taken their inspiration for the Beach Bunnies set?

Additional ingredients for this are Distress Inks (ReInkers), Authentique Seasons: Autumn 6x6 pad,
Clearly Besotted "Say What" sentiments, and custom sized card base

Happy weekend!

Hugs, Squirrel

Brace yourselves!  I've made a card that's not DT, I made it all for me for fun!

and as I have lots of both I thought it was about time to join in
with a challenge that I love but have not had a chance to do for absolutely ages

So for this little cutie I have used
and an old Hero Arts sentiment
Image is painted with Distress Inks (ReInkers) and Polychromos Pencils

DTDF (DT) Sweet Honey Bee

Happy 1st July folks!  Cripes, halfway through the year already, so that is six happy months I have been DTing for the DIES TO DIE FOR blog!

Today I am bringing you a dose of sweet summer stickiness.

I love this cute little girl, and she was so much fun to colour with the Distress Inks (ReInkers).  The ARF stamps all have a LOT of hair, so if you love colouring hair then these stamps are the ones for you.  My hairiness was done with the help of a variety of brown toned Polychromos Pencils.

All the linked ingredients are available in the Dies To Die For on-line store

Having a buzzing weekend guys
Hugs to all

While I'm here, the closing date for the SNSRC Fantasy Challenge
