Strongo Turns 40

Strongo the Magnificent shows no signs of slowing down or retiring - how could he when he's only turning 40!

Trophy (with handles removed) is from the cheap section. Go get yours! Hope my brother still speaks to me after he gets his Birthday card! Funny thing is, its got a look of him - not the 'tash but the stance - he was the bodybuilding Mr Junior Great Britain a fair few years ago!

Aubery Bumblethope

Oh dear, poor Aubery Bumblethope from Dr. Digi's House of Cards was so looking forward to a nice long bike ride this weekend to keep from doing the long list of chores his wife prepared for him! Doesn't look like he'll be going anywhere until he figures out how to put the tire back on his bike! Wonder why he does't ask the Mrs., she took if off!

Rescue Squad

Our weather is gorgeous right now, and I'm hoping it stays around for a good long time.....but we all know that winter will soon be on it's way.  Hopefully it won't be anything like last year, but just in case....be prepared.  This image from Dr Digi's House of Stamps, titled Rescue Squad, is a good reminder of what is in store, and what will be needed.  I'm thinking a couple of those barrels should be included in our winter provisions!

Two Fat Boys

There comes a time in many a man's life when the world of two wheels beckons and a Harley Fat Boy is just the answer for Aubrey Bumblethorpe! A life on the open road, his wife breathes a sigh of relief as whilst he's out with his mates on a Sunday afternoon riding over the moors, she gets a bit of peace and a chance to catch up on Strictly and Downton!

You can find Two Fat Boys HERE and the two separate fat boys HERE and HERE. Hope you have a great weekend

Happy Hour

Ah, I do like the sentiments on the Funny Sentiments Sheet 2. Just perfect for when you need to wish someone a Happy Birthday but also to poke fun at the same time. Perfect.

If I could, I would hum the theme song to Rocky, da da daa, but probably just the mere mention of it is enough to drive you bonkers the rest of the day hearing it inside your head! So sorry!  Dr. Digi's House of Stamps is releasing this muscle-bound he-man today and Rocky is his name! But admit it, Tommy or Teddy just wouldn't do!

Today I like to have some nice photos of the birthday party.
This polaroid camera makes the photos.
I used the image Say Cheese. It is one of the Cheapies.

There a lot of more of them HERE can you find them.
And HERE can you read how I made the card.

Greetings Michelle

Dishcloth Dave

I am cheating this week as time has got away from me but it's always fun to revisit older Dr Digi images and Dish Cloth Dave is one of my favourites, perfect for so many men in my life. Mind you I doubt they'll be any of this type of behaviour in my middle son's student house although he is sharing with 4 girls this year so who knows what they may bully him into doing. My youngest is also starting uni but will be living at home, he does at least know where the dishwasher but still has an aversion to soap and the wet stuff!

You can find Dishcloth Dave HERE along with the many other fantastic Dr Digi images.
Hope you all have a good weekend

Plump and Juicy

Now you may be forgiven for thinking you've already seen this little creation; fear not - it is BBQ Bill's identical twin brother - Bert - who is equally gifted with the Char-Master 2000. Maybe plump and juicy are the wrong adjectives.....

BBQ Bill / Bert is available in the store - go on - you know you want one!

Hard Days Knight

Leave it to Dr. Digi's House of Stamps to give a poke to knights so brave as to take on a dragon! Hard Days Knight is such a brave nobleman, to bad the neighborhood kids didn't admit to using his lance to practice pole vaults until it cracked!

Faldaree Deirdery Dunderton

 I had a bit of fun with this one, using a well known children's song for inspiration.  Just a reminder....there could be bears in those woods, and even if they don't find you, the bugs and mosquitos will!  This is another wonderful image from Dr Digi's House of Stamps, and you can find her here.  I know some people are really into camping out....but that's so definitely not me!

Wash Day Blues

Wash Day blues, or oranges, or pinks or yellows. Whatever the colour there's nothing better than line dried washing! Well apart from someone else doing the washing for you! There's some very sexy undies on that line although the lady they usually adorn is clearly feeling rather shy in this image!

You can find Wash Day HERE, looks like we are in for a lovely late summer weekend here, can only hope Dr Digi is having similar weather further afield where he is holidaying with Mrs Digi. You can find the sentiment on Funny Sentiment Sheet 2 HERE

There's nothing better than a sturdy cuppa first thing in the morning; not too milky and not overly Builders Brew - the perfect cuppa is a great way to start the day (even though these mornings its still dark outside!)

Cuppa digi won't break the bank at only 50p!

Lagerfest Lottie

Careful, watch your step Lagerfest Lottie, your vision may be impaired by the heavy load you are carrying and it would be a shame to spill all the ale! Dr. Digi's House of Stamps must have been very thirsty when he created you!

 I think it is a great card for a guy.
Hopes the guys also like this kind of card???

Crouching tiger hidden Dunderton

Dr. Digi here, taking a little time from my sun drenched (though it's more drenched at the moment,  you should see the storms) vacation to bring you some more of the fantastic cards from some of our sponsored challenges.  Kitty has used  Crouching tiger hidden Dunderton for her entry over at Love to create challenge blog.  I'm not sure what dan a tartan belt is, but I certainly wouldnt mess with Ambrose.
