Bath Time Deirdery

Derek & Deirdery

Hi everyone, Stacey here with another card using the fantastic Derek and Deirdery Dunderton. Anyone who knows me knows I am a huge Dundertons fan. I love colouring these guys up. So today I made a card for my parents anniversary. My mum and dad could just be the real life Derek and Deirdery!
Don't forgot not only does Dr Digi sell the digi stamp Derek and Deirdery - but you can also get the coloured version - perfect for a quicky card or if you love Dr Digi images but colouring isn't your thing. The papers I have used on this card are also from Dr Digi too so why not pop over and have a look at the different unique designs.
See you all next Thursday
Keep Smilin'

I made a card for a uncle.
He is a craftsman and the image shows this.
It is called: man about the house.
This craftsman does make a good job.
As you see he has got his equipment with him.
I hope the plaster does not tells something about his way of working.

If you like to see more about the card take a look at my blog.
Have a nice weekend, see you.

Happy Birth Spray

I'd like to point out that I would never advocate spraying on walls (not least because I'm no Banksy) however if you have access to some little cans then why not go mad on a birthday card! Okay so I am not that good, if it had been me spraying with mini cans the paper would have remained clear and the desk and walls would be splattered, so I chose the next best option, my printer, Dr Digi's Spray Can image and some ProMarkers! But the thought was there! You can find the Spray Can image HERE, and here's the best bit- it's free!!!!!

Run! Derek! RUNNNNNN!

Hi everyone, Stacey here with today's post. Look at Derek go! He is in training to keep fit for his lady Deirdery. He's just run a marathon and not even out of puff or a bead of sweat to be seen! He is coming up to the finish line in 1st place but as the card says - he always comes first to Deirdery!
Not only is Run Derek Run available from the Dr. Digi store HERE but the backing paper is also a Dr. Digi paper so can be bought from the store HERE too.
More details on this card can be found on my blog HERE
See you all next Thursday

Typically British

Imagine the scene; husbands' Birthday is fast approaching and I still think its mid February (I know, I've only had a year to remember) and I need to make a card. Something that will make him smile and fondly remember the 'good old days' when he had his very own Mini.

And better still, the digi is a cheapie and only a quid!

Weekend Walter Meets Psychedelic Syd

Good morning hope you had a great weekend.

Spot Prize

Tammy's had a bit of a tumble ( don't worry she's on the mend ) so I'll be posting today.  sounds like a good excuse for a spot prize to me.   
Susanne Gleason was our 350th like on Facebook and won herself a free digi. (If you could mail us at Susanne,  I cant find your email anywhere lol)

When someone is turning 90, (and no, it's not me!), it's definitely a time for celebration.  Biffo thinks so too, and he's all dressed and raring to go....only the big day isn't until June!  Biffo is available for download here at Dr Digi's House of Stamps, and of course, he's sure to brighten anyone's special day.

Derek Clapton

Every now and again Derek likes to take a break from Deirdery and her to do lists. He escapes to the spare room and plays his guitar to his heart's content without making any 'racket' at all!
You can find Derek Clapton HERE and his guitar is this month's freebie and can be found HERE, you can also find the valve radio as a stand alone image HERE

Deirdery's Day Off!

Hi everyone, Stacey here with today's post. So we are all fed up of the cold, rain right? Well I say we should take a leaf out of Deirdery's book and escape somewhere hot! She's lounging on the beach for her birthday and who can blame her! Let's hope Derek packed her factor 30! It's actually my birthday tomorrow but I can guarantee I won't be laid on a beach! Oh Well!

Deirdery's Day Off can be bought from the store HERE & more details on this card including how to do the clouds and sand are included over on my bog HERE

See you all next week

Good Luck Kitty

What better way to say good luck then with a cute little kitty! Or a rather larger kitty - still cute though!

Scrodinger is available in the Dr Digi store along with many other fab images! You will have to add a not-quite-centred stamped sentiment yourself though!

Cake and present

Isn't it great to become cake and presents to your birthday.
I love it.
So I made a cake with lots of caramel-icing
 and bought something for you.
Wrapped it up in green paper and used a orange bow.

For this pop-up box card I used the image  

You can find the images HERE
and for more details look HERE to my blog.

Have a nice weekend and see you next time.

Cricketing Derek

 Oops, looks like Derek forgot to arrange for the groundsman! My Grandad, who was a player and an umpire for over 60 years would've been unimpressed, and my Nan, the great keeper of a scoreboard, whilst knitting and keeping an eye on my Dad and his sister, would have raised a significant eyebrow!  I might be lying if I said that I didn't choose this image just so I could use the word googly in the sentiment!

You can find Cricket Derek HERE with all the other fantastically, characterful images that Dr Digi has penned, or is that pencilled.

Wash Day

They say 'there's no rest for the wicked' and that's certainly true for Nannan here. It's her birthday and she's still out in the garden pegging out hers and Grandad's bloomers. My daughter (12) helped me pick out this fab digi for her Nannan's birthday card - let's hope Nannan has a better birthday for real - I'm pretty sure the washing can wait for one day!  'Wash Day' can be found over on Dr Digi store HERE & more details on the card can be found on my blog HERE.

Weekend Walter

It's Wednesday and the weekend is still a long way off,  but for Weekend Walter  it's always the weekend.  Any excuse to get out the comfy monster slipper and make a brew.  Nick over at Brown Sugar challenge blog has got Walter ready for some serious leisure time on this fantastic card...

Leaning Tower of Cake

More often than not my baking skills are rather dodgy; my jam rolls never did (and even the birds turned their beaks up at the crumbs) and my apple pies were too tart. So, it comes as no surprise that my tiered Victoria sponges lean rather dangerously whilst splodging out stawberry jam and dripping sweet icing.

Buy Birthday Cake from the store and you too can drip icing all down your best top.

Cricket Derek

Oh Shoot! Dr. Digi's House of Stamps' famous Cricket Derek did it again! He was responsible for marking the field for the annual cricket match at the local senior citizens home, one that he was really looking forward to inasmuch as the entire women's' volleyball team agreed to attend and cheer his team on.  Instead of making nice straight lines, Derek zigged when he should have zagged!

Dishcloth Dave

Here we have a fun image, titled Dishcloth Dave, with the man about the house who's not afraid of a bit of soap and water...hmmmm.   Somehow or other, whenever Dave had pictured retirement and the Golden Years, this was not the picture that came to mind!
