As you can see I am in
the swing of these Christmas cards. I
could not resist using this adorably cute Penguin but don’t forget Penguin are not just for Christmas you can use this image
all the year round.
You will find this image along
with lots of other fabulous images HERE
Cuddly Critters as a group for the bargain price of
£5 you will find them HERE

Don't know about you but I cannot function without a brew first thing in the morning. I drink loads of cups of tea every day but Tea does fix most things! I love nothing more than dunking some chocolate into my cuppa so it melts a little. There is no better combination than tea and chocolate in my world anyway!
For me there are two key questions in life ..... Tea or Coffee? And Dogs or cats? Its the first option for me in both these questions... You disagree and I'm afraid you are wrong! (I do actually drink black coffee but only when I have a hangover... oops!)
Enough of my whittering... Im actually writing this waiting for the Rugby match to start... COME ON ENGLAND!! Im in work first thing Sunday so I have scheduled this post in advance. So its Tea all the way for me this evening ... But hopefully I will still be celebrating our win (Said with everything crossed)
If you would like to see the full recipe for the card - pop over to my blog.
All for now - It's about to kick off!
This is Gluteus Maximus.
Just look at him... all poised like a coiled spring - ready for any action that comes his way! He is certainly no "Bum" lazing around. (Get it??)
I ... on the other hand am quite the opposite this Sunday Morning and may just hide in my bed today... I spent all
yesterday at the Rugby club watching the local match and then England's World cup game. There were a few local bands playing and a BBQ set up too, so obviously I also had to partake in a little social drinking....
How ace is this image? I loved
colouring him and I kept it quite traditional with Reds and Greys
but I liked the touch of gold. I'm pleased with the way they have
come together and its still a masculine card whilst being bright and colourful.
Have a great day folks and I hope Gluteus Maximus is an inspiration to you today!
Offically he is a Gnome but I
decided to use him as a Christmas Elf . I wanted to make Grimble Grumble Bright. I decided he would be a Bright and Merry chap whether he likes it or not!! I think he is actually looking rather
pleased with his sparkly beard!
I apologies its a Christmas card but it is only 98 sleeps till the big day!! I have lots of Christmas cards to make before then!

Right I'm off to spend the day creeping around the house trying not to wake the Boyf who is currently on nights - It's a good job I don't have to wear a bell like Ol'Grimble!
At the moment I am busy having a huge declutter of the whole house, including crafting stuff so I needed a digistamp that was quick and easy, Aubrey Bumblethorpe came to my rescue! He is another of Dr Digi's selection of pre coloured digi images, a handsome old devil, you will agree!
He can be found HERE and if you do not have a cluttered craft desk and want to colour him yourself then you can find him HERE.
This is Vlad and he his a great image to colour. I didn't use my usual skin combo on him as I wanted him to look - well... grey and dead!!
I was originally going to use him for a birthday card with some kind of pun about Counting and birthdays but struggled to word it so maybe I'll will figure that out for another time. But Vlad would be great not only for Halloween cards but also valentines and birthdays.
My other half had the bright idea of using Red nail varnish to make the drops of blood and I think they are pretty effective. (Although I think my hand cut bats leave a little to be desired... maybe I'll perfect those too!)
Halloween is only round the corner and there are loads of fab images at Dr Digi that are perfect for the spooky season...
