Sometimes you just need a Cuddly Critter to get the message across! Elephant was perfect for the job in hand (along with some artistic licence!) - to wish a well liked work colleague good luck as she leaves for pastures new.

X-Ray Raymond

Hello -  as you read this I am actually away camping in the Lakes! Oh the power of Scheduled posts!


So here is this weeks showcase of a fab Dr Digi image called X-ray Raymond. He's a pretty new addition to the collection and I wanted to use him a bit different to a Get well card or something similar. I think he works well as a "Manly" Valentines or just a note to the other half to tell him he's still got it!

If you would like to see more details about this card -Pop over to my Blog and take a look. 

That's all for me for now - I'm hoping the weekend has stayed dry and I'm not suffering from Hyperthermia when you read this!
Take care,
Liz (:(|)x

Summer Holiday- We're All Going...

It's that time of year, pack your bags and go and explore the world, well we can dream can't we. I bet there will be a few of these camper vans heading to Glastonbury this weekend but maybe not too many hankie hat wearing old folk!

I took the easy route this week and used the pre coloured Summer Holiday image, available HERE, you can find the black and white version HERE, I also used the great new set of papers, Curves and Corners, which can be found HERE.

Have a good weekend

Attention! Its Corporal Clegg!

Morning - again I'm running a little late... I've worked it out though - it's when I work late shifts as I really don't like getting up out of my bed!! I certainly would not appreciate Corporal Clegg yelling at me to do my PTI!

 Well as its Father's Day - I had to post a card for the Dads. And don't they all love planes and military shows! It was also the perfect excuse to colour Corporal Clegg in with a red and blue theme. I like him in these colours but I'm not sure which Country he serves...
I can't express strongly enough how glad I am that I found Dr Digi images. They are perfect for all the Dads and Lads cards!

If you would like to see the full card recipe pop over to my Blog and say "Hello"

Right now I have to go and see my Dad and if I'm lucky the parents might make me brunch!!
See you next week

Best Seat In The House

You know how it is, man comes home from a tiring day at work, the dog greets man like a long lost friend at the door, he dashes off to find man his slippers and man settles down in his comfy armchair with the paper and his pipe!

Not anymore, man's dog has had a tiring day chasing his tail and running in his dreams, so man's dog gets comfy in the old armchair and man should be very, very grateful that his slippers haven't been chewed!

You can find Best Seat in the House HERE, don't forget it's Father's Day this Sunday and have a great weekend

Hole in one Hal.

This is Hole in one Hal.  I'm cracking on, trying to get ahead and get some Fathers day cards done.

This one I've made for the soon to be Father in Law. (Less than a year till we get Wed...!) He likes his golf but doesn't get much chance to play. All the boys in both families play golf and they have an annual tournament but the cheating that goes on is terrible! We are all pretty competitive - after all Second place is first loser!!

I'm hoping this will be the best Fathers Day card he will receive!!
If you would like to see the recipe for this card - pop over to my blog, where all the colours are listed too.
See you next week,

Faldaree Deirdery

Oh, I love to go a-wandering
Along the mountain track
And as I go I love to sing
With a knapsack on my back

Faldaree, faldarah, faldaree, faldarah-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha
Falderee, faldarah a knapsack on my back.

Faldaree Deirdery is setting off for a trek up a mountain, something she likes to do at the weekend, personally I am more into lies in, copious quantities of tea and a takeaway at the weekend! You can find Faldaree Deirdery HERE. Hope you have a good weekend, whatever you choose to do!

Not a pretty sight, but at least the furry monster slippers match the cuppa. And as Father's Day is rapidly approaching, Weekend Walter is the perfect image to that perfect guy.

Mini Cooper

Just love this image it reminds me of the film Italian Job with the coach rocking to and fro on the mountain edge. My first card was a Mini and it was red, I hated going out in the rain in it. If you went through a big puddle the engine cut out!! The Good old days

Dunderton Academicals RFC!

Wow its Sunday morning again already! These weeks are flying by too quickly. Today Im showing you Dunderton Academicals FC and Balls. I used the balls to change the image from a Football player to a Rugby Player.

I'm trying to get ahead and make some Fathers Day cards ready for 21st June. I made this one with my Dad in mind - Who played rugby well into his 50's. Now at 70 - its a more sedate affair of Bowls! I have many happy memories of days spent hanging around the rugby club watching Dad play whilst the Mum were in the club house cooking up Pie and mash. I've made this card in the team colours and Derek looks more like my Dad today rather than back when he was playing!

 If you would like to see the card recipe - pop over to my blog where even the marker pens used are listed.

Hope you enjoy your Sunday

Keep Fit Kenneth

Today I have a card with Keep Fit Kenneth, from Dr Digi's House of Stamps.  I actually have a brother by that name....hmmm.  With summer fast approaching, it's time to find out those weights and buff up a bit.  Kenneth wants to look his best for the summer reveal, and also hopes to fit into his summer clothes from last year.

X-Ray Raymond

Oh dearie me, Raymond has come a cropper, never one for taking things slowly, Raymond was on his space hopper, racing down the high street, when he accidently bounced onto a mattress, on display at the local bed shop, and catapulted himself straight into the display next door at the greengrocers. It was carnage aubergines, quince and squash went everywhere (Raymond lives in a posh area it has to be said). Never mind it looks like he has come away pretty unscathed.

You can find X Ray Raymond HERE along with lots of other fantastic digistamps. Hope you all have a good weekend

Mini Cooper

Sometimes its the small things that make us smile. Mini Coopers do that.  And nice and simple cards that just happen to fall together.  I'd like to think by magic, but it's probably more luck and good fortune!
