Hello chaps, it is the weekend (yay) and Spring really does seem to have sprung now, at last! We have a busy weekend ahead, what with Mother's Day tomorrow, Church twice, the start of the 2017 Formula 1 season (yippee!) and I have some special design work to get on with. So without more ado, here is my make for the DIES TO DIE FOR blog today.
All the linked ingredients are available from the
Dies To Die For on-line store - the links will take you to the right pages
Image painted with Distress Inks (ReInkers) and I used the off-the-page technique
with the rose. It proved a little tricky with the double-stitched die but I got there
in the end

I have made this for my Oldies' wedding anniversary for this coming Tuesday.
A little while ago I had a phone call from my dad, it isn't often he will make a call so I was a little concerned, but I had to have a chuckle.
Dad: You know what this year is?
Me: Yes dad, it's 2017.
Dad: Me and your mum have been married 60 years.
Me: No, you haven't.
Dad: We have.
Me: No dad, you really haven't. It's 58.
Dad: Are you sure?
Me: Yes dad, you got married in 1959, that's 58 years. You have 2 years to go.
Dad: Oh bugger.
Bless his little heart. But it did give me the opportunity to remind him that it might not be an 0 anniversary, but it is an 0 birthday for my mum. He was grateful that I had mentioned it, and asked me to remind him again nearer the time!
Hope you have a super weekend, whatever you are up to
Hugs, Squirrel xx
