Gluteus Maximus.

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!

Making Grimble Grumble bright...

This is Grimble Grumble from Dr Digi's House of Stamps.

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!
If you would like to see the full card recipe - Take a look at my blog for details. 

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!
Take Care,
Liz (:(|)x

Aubery Bumblethorpe (pre coloured)

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.

Have a good weekend

Geriatric Super Powers (Part 1)

Apologies this post is a little late however it's all in the name of Geriatric Super Powers, namely Captain Thunderpants.

He did start the crime fighting spree early doors (5:30am) but has only just this very moment made it out of the front door.

Sentiment is from the Birthday Sentiment Sheet 01.

Bite Me Vlad.

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...

See you all soon,

Good morning today from  Dr. Digi's House of Stamps we have PERFECT SUNDAY but on a Monday!!

A Perfect Sunday for Ambrose Dunderton is feet up a cupper cricket or football on the TV and Trotsky, his faithful terrier!
This image is perfect for so many occasions and great fun to colour. . I have used it for my wedding anniversary only 41 years ago today that we tied the knot. 
Perfect Sunday looks like my John and Macy our Westie  but John does not have a beard!

Weekend Walter.

 Morning Everyone - I know you will be reading this in the light of day but I am writing this in our holiday home in Wales after having just got in from eating the biggest Mexican meal and drinking a jug or two of Cosmopolitan! I really feel like I need to let it all hang out and relax now just like Walter!!

This card has been made for the boyfriends work buddy who is soon to retire. He has some grand plans for his free time but they all joke that he will end up spending his days sat around in his underpants, so Weekend Walter  was the perfect choice. And because its a digital image I was able to make this a big 8 x 8" card so there was plenty of room for all the good wishes.

If you would like the full card recipe - pop over to my blog by clicking here.

Have a fab day and week. I will try not to eat so much for the rest of the week!!

I show you today 4 ATC's.
I used the image Seedling and also the fitting backingpapers.
It was so much fun making these.

I coloured each Seedling in a different colour of green.
And I used the raffia on four different ways.
Of course the backingpapers are all different on all cards.

HERE can read more about the making.
And HERE you find lots of digital stamps.

Toolshed Ted

Ted has been carefully tending his seedlings, they are aloe plants and he is planning on finding the secret of eternal youth, although he possibly needs to get a move on! He has needed his wellies this summer but still hopes he might be able to break out his flip flops if a rumoured September heatwave comes to pass (something to do with if America gives a weather system a big enough shove to get it across the Atlantic).

You can find Toolshed Ted HERE and the most fantastic Seedlings papers HERE (second only to the biscuits paper in my humble opinion). Hope you all have a good weekend.

Very Smart

And now for something a little different! I've made this jacket and shirt and used papers from Polo's - one colour for the actual shirt and a contrast for the inside of the jacket.

And the best bit?  The papers only cost £1 for 5 different colour-ways!
