Snow Fun

Well it is Snow Fun for the poor old snowman but I think the dog is enjoying himself! Once again the newspapers are promising the UK an Arctic winter, so on that basis, and given they predicted the same the past few years, I think the chances of the country being awash with snowmen is quite small, and here, specifically, non existent. But you never know!

You can find Snow Fun HERE along with many other goodies.
Have a good weekend

Special Brew

There are lots of spooky goings on over at Dr Digi - and here is one that I left brewing earlier! Special Brew and for good measure Crossbones. I don't think these need to carry a health warning as they look pretty grim to begin with!

Hope you are ready for things that go BUMP in the night!

Now I don't want you to be frightened, but when you stroll down the street where Dr. Dig's House of Stamps is located, don't knock on Vlad's door, just keep going if you value your life! Vlad is just waiting to jump out and scare you! Oh and he doesn't give out candy!

Hole in One Hal

Today's card is using the fabulous Hole in One Hal image from Dr Digis House of Stamps.  Like most golfers I know, he's still dreaming of achieving a hole in one!   Now, I'm not a golfer myself,....can't hit the ball and with my eyesight....couldn't find it anyway. 

It won't be long now, until our Canadian snowbirds (retirees) are heading south.  One might think it is for the sun and sand, but no.....I'm betting it's for the game of golf.  Chasing that little white ball around and enjoying a few beers, sure beats shoveling snow and freezing your buns off!

Witchy Wilma

Say hello to Witchy Wilma, it's that time of year where she dusts off her broomstick and goes for a nightly fly around, she did bob into the supermarket one night but the shopping bags slightly unbalanced her broomstick leading to a rather unfortunate incident with a policeman and half a dozen eggs!

You can find Witchy Wilma HERE and the spooky sentiment HERE, please check my blog for details about papers used.

Have a good weekend

Monster Fun

Halloween is approaching and what better way to celebrate than with the good Dr's Halloween Sentiments which have eerily turned into cupcake toppers! Now I would show you how they are supposed to look however this house has no cupcakes and I didn't think they would look right stabbed through some Jaffa Cakes.......

Buy the Sentiment Sheet along with Special Brew and Witchy Wilma and save a £1 - enough to buy some treats!

Tommy Gunn.

I don’t think he has a packed lunch in that violin case he does not look as you could mess with him. I add a scare to Tommy Gunn. face because the poor chap I am sending this to has had a  nasty accident and now has a VERY large scare on his face and neck!!

You will find him along with lots of other fabulous image HERE more details on this card can be found over on myblog

Flossie Bumblethorpe

If you see dear old Flossie Bumblethorpe, aimlessly wondering the halls at Dr. Digi's House of Stamps, don't mind her, she's trying to find where she left her dentures! She claims to have lost them in a poker game! Yesterday she was looking for her undies and tomorrow, who knows what she'll be looking for!

Late summer

Derek thought now the weather is not so nice anymore 
I take my car and pack some clothes and drive away in the sun.
He hopes Deirdery is also coming with him.

I hope he will find a good place for his late summer holiday.
I used the image Summer Holiday.
Here can you read how I made this card.

Have a nice weekend, Michelle

Lonely This Christmas

Well apparently according to one of our national newspapers we are due an Arctic winter, given they said this last year and the year before forgive me if I am somewhat sceptical about such a promise. However, I am ever hopeful for a little bit of snow! This young man is Lonely This Christmas, not sure how good a companion a snowman or, possibly (I'm saying nothing about the spare snowballs), snowwoman will be but you never know, in true Raymond Brigg's style, what will happen in the night!

You can find Lonely This Christmas HERE and why not check out the site for more Christmas goodies both now and in the upcoming months (actually not many months now). Late summer has appeared here in the north west of England so shorts here I come, then again maybe not, hope you all have a good weekend

What Solves Everything?

A cuppa, that's what!

And even better when the cuppa digi is only 50p! You can't buy a real cuppa tea for that price! Scrumpled sentiment panel is from a bag of sugar. Recycling at it's sweetest.

Summer Holiday

The car is loaded and now all there is to do is wait for the family to hop in so that the crew from Dr. Digi's House of Stamps can be off on a late Summer Holiday to take advantage of the low off-season rates! Hmm, should we tell him that the tires are going flat from all the weight of the luggage!

Surfin' Santa

For those of you thinking that Santa stays at the North Pole all year long...think again!  He too likes his bit of sun, and its quite possible you may have seen him on the beach hiding behind his shades.  I might see him myself this week, as I'm heading south for a short vacation with my daughter.

My card today uses the Surfin' Santa image from Dr Digi's House of Stamps, coloured with copics.  Sure to bring a smile to someone this Christmas!

Flossie Bumblethorpe

She might be a bit rickety, but she's as sharp as a tack as long as you get her between 9 and 10 in the morning after her hearty breakfast porridge! Never mess with dear Flossie as she is lethal with that zimmer frame, a crack on the back of the ankles with that thing and you'll be hobbling for a week!

You can find Flossie Bumblethorpe HERE and the sentiment I used was from Funny Sentiment Sheet 2, to be found HERE, hope you all have a lovely weekend,

Bath Time Deirdery

In our modern fast world, there's a lot to be said for a shower, in and out, all clean within minutes, however when you need to relax there's even more to be said for a lovely hot, bubbly bath. What better day to relax than on your birthday, especially if the accompanying cup of tea is made by someone else and, of course, there's no limit to the number of ducks you can have!

You can find Bath Time Deirdery HERE, and details of papers etc on my BLOG. Hope you all have a relaxin' kinda weekend even if it isn't your birthday!
