DTDF (DT) Milton

Happy Saturday to you all from me - do you have anything exciting planned?

We're waiting for our builder to pop round to have a look at a rather suspicious damp
patch that has appeared, and then, if he isn't too late, we're over to the Oldies for a cuppa
and a sneaky assessment of garden vegetables!

For my DTDF make today I have a cheeky little fella to share with you

Look at that smile!

Have yourselves a wonderful crafty weekend!

Hugs, Squirrel xx

AYLI (DT) Embellishments

Yoo-hoo folks, happy Thursday to you!  Alternate Thursdays mean a new challenge from AS YOU LIKE IT and this time around we would like you to share with us your Favourite Embellishment(s) and tell us why they are your favourites.

You may have guessed that I didn't choose the theme!  Embellishments, phooey!  I'm a clean and simple kinda girl, some days more simple than others (ha), so I tend to restrict embellishments, a lot.  Rather than being able to add lots of stuff skillfully, my makes tend to look a little, shall we say, rugged.  So I keep it simple.  I love die-cut embellishments but try to use them to echo the theme, like this one with the stars

So, for my simple card I have used:
CC Designs - Dancing
Painted with Distress Inks (ReInkers) and Polychromos Pencils
Joanna Sheen Starry Night Border Die
Sentiment from who-knows-where but it was one of those "that'll be useful" purchases years ago
MFT 6x6 Tribal Prints
DoCrafts wood pattern paper

Our sponsor for this challenge is CRAFTS U LOVE

Looking forward to seeing how much you can attach to a card all your beautiful and creative uses of embellishments!

Love and hugs
Squirrel xx

SNSRC #6 - Holiday Fun

Hello everyone - today sees the start of a new Squirrel's Not So Random Challenge
and this time the theme is Holiday Fun

This is the time of year when just about everyone has had, is having, or about to have, a holiday, even if it is only a few days at home with a paddling pool in the back garden - so we would like you to share your idea of holiday fun with us.

We are a little low on DT inspiration for you today, but don't worry, we will inundate you with
suitable reminders as the weeks tick by!

Who doesn't love an ice-cream, especially a chocolate one

Surely no holiday is complete without a sandcastle which gets washed away at high tide

and our winner from the last challenge is Julye B with her adorable teddy-bumps card
Please contact me Julye to claim your prize - email to Squirrel

This challenge will run until 29 October at 6.00pm
