Peg Leg Pete - Takes a stand.

Morning - I thought I'd have a break from the christmas creations just before December kicks in and the festive period takes hold. So I have used Peg leg Pete to make something a bit different.

I do love Christmas but it seems to start earlier and earlier every year... I refuse to put my decorations up until December starts but then don't want to take them down as everywhere looks so bare afterwards.

So I am taking a stand and Peg Leg Pete is my little bit of rebellion against the early Christmas... He is such a fab image and so full of character. I purposefully added a general greeting so I can use this card for any occasion.

Right - I need to go and get ready for Church. Need to pray for some dry weather as we are off to York for a few days to make a dint in the Christmas shopping. Excited as we are going to Jamie Oliver's restaurant for dinner one night too... You know how much I love my food!

If you would like the full recipe for this card - take a look at my blog.
Hope you all have a lovely day,

Grimble Grumble

Santa Selfie

Morning All - Sorry I'm a little later than usual posting this morning but its because I'm using this "Hot of the pencil" image.... Called Santa Selfie. This will be available very soon to buy -so watch the website!


I actually added loads of glitter but not sure you can see it very well in this photo... glitter for snow is compulsory in my opinion. I saw this image and had to have it - Its traditional christmas with the very modern phenomenon that is the Selfie!! I have so many friends that this image is perfect for.

We had our Girls night out on Friday and headed to the Christmas markets in Chester - It really got me in the Festive spirit - as did the Gluhwein!! I love Christmas but when is it appropriate to put up the decorations... It has to be December at least for me but there is a fully decorated tree in a neighbouring house.

So i'll witter no on more and let you see this fab new image!

Enjoy folks

Toolshed Ted

Sometimes you just want to say Hi, or give a little encouragement.  Today, my card for Dr Digi's House of Stamps, is using the Toolshed Ted image.  I'm sure he's been putting his gardens to bed for the winter (just like me!), but just wants to save this one little plant for his windowsill.  Of course, he looks a little puzzled....perhaps he's just trying to decide if it's really a plant, or just a weed.   Hmmm.

Friday, 20 November 2015


Back onto making Christmas cards this week and this is a perfect image because it is free!! Yep free, gratis but I bet you can't go to Dr Digi's website without putting more than a bauble into your basket!

You can find the bauble HERE and you can find the sentiment on the Christmas sentiment sheet HERE

Rollin' Santa

Happy middle of the week!!

Tina here with Santa's other sleigh....Harley Claus from Dr Digi.  I have some friends who are bike riders and thought it would be a perfect Christmas card.  Even that tough guy on your Christmas card list might like something a little tougher.  I also used Distressed Diamonds Paper and Christmas Sentiment Sheet to finish out the Christmas look :o)

Tuesday, 17 November 2015


I've made this card for a photography mad (or should that be mad photographer) who will be celebrating his Birthday soon.  Made using the very versatile Camera digi.

Professor retires.

Morning! For todays card I have used this image called Professor Dummkopf . I love this image and he has so many uses...

I made this card on specific request from my other half  - his friend and colleague was retiring. And he picked this image to use on the card that I made for all the team to sign. They are all forensic science geeks so Prof D was perfect. (I can call them that because Geek is chic these days!)

This morning as I'm off to church...  We are going because I want to get married in the lovely little village church just down the road from where we are putting the Tipi for the reception. We get married in May but have to attend for 6 months.
In fact the Husband-to-be has a clipboard just like Prof D with the "Wedding to do list" on... Need I say any more!! ( But at least one of us is organised!)

If you want the full lowdown on this card - pop to my blog.

Have a lovely day - fingers crossed it stops raining at some point as I need to go for a run (Got a white frock to fit into soon...)

Today I used the cat Schrödinger for two ATC.
I coloured him black and white.
And so I made the background of the ATC also black and white.

I think both colours are great for him.
What do you think????

So HERE you find lots of more great digital stamps.
And HERE can you read more about my ATC.

Have nice weekend.

Climbing Kitties

Here's my latest card using the newest Dr Digi image which he made with me in mind (no one dare argue otherwise thank you!!). Add another couple of cats and this would be my house, at the moment you can see Elmo on the top, Frodo clinging on for dear life and Jasper disappearing into the bottom. Makoto and Ossie are clearly off elsewhere doing cat things, probably involving choosing which rodent to present me with next. I keep telling them that bringing in live field mice is not going to win them any prizes but will they listen?

You can find this fab new digistamp HERE and you can find a wonderful new collection of sentiments for pets HERE. Hope you all have a good weekend, we are expecting a monsoon here because apparently Manchester does not get enough rain already!

Rememberance Day with Corporal Clegg.

Good Morning - Today is Remembrance Sunday so I have made today's card using Corporal Clegg.

I really wanted to use the poppy paper but mixed it with the wood effect to create some harsh contrast to the pretty flowers - I guess that's part of the symbolism of the Poppy in War.

I am really interested in my family history and have done a huge family tree. I found one relative who was in a prisoner of war camp and died two days before liberation - So sad! I managed to find where his war grave is in Belgium and was able to have his story remembered by the Royal British legion campaign to commemorate every fallen solider. It really is an amazing and interesting site and really quite easy to find any relatives they may have been involved in the Wars.

Hope you all have a great week - see you next Sunday

Christmas Chris

It's November so I thought I had better get started on a few more Christmas cards; every year I say I will make a couple a week then I won't be in a mad rush, you, of course, know how that plan goes! As you can see here Christmas Chris has gotten started early on the Christmas pudding, there will be some very unimpressed people on the day itself if there's none to be had!

You can find Christmas Chris HERE and check out the rest of the Christmas section for more seasonal digis; between you and me I think there may be some more arriving in the store in the next few weeks, but don't tell Dr Digi I told you!

Have a good weekend, am off to a fireworks display tomorrow night, boom, flash, kaboom, have a good one

Extra Life

Hello, Tina here with my first DT post for Dr. Digi's House of Stamps.  I'm sharing a fun "Get Well" card using Arcade Machine for the gamer in your life.  To complete this full arcade scene, I also used Techy Sentiments and Arcade Addict Backing Paper.  This was such a fun card to make and my oldest son gave it thumbs up...yes, he's gamer.

Have a wonderful crafty day :o)

Hole in one Hal and Mobility Malcolm

As the weather is now changing and winter will soon be upon us Hole in one Hal has decided a day on the golf course is in order. He is so vain and won’t wear his spectacle. He thought he would ask Mobility Malcolm if he had seen where his last putt had landed! He might just as well asked the birds for all the good it did him.

Made For Halloween.

Morning All - I know officially Halloween was last night but as I missed posting last week - I thought I would post my Scary creation today... after all it was only a few hours ago!
This is an image called Made for each other from Dr Digi.

I've wanted to colour this image up for a bit and how great would it be on an Anniversary card or engagement card! Cos if I'm honest I don't really do Halloween - I prefer Bonfire night but I do like any excuse for a party!!

Apologies for not being around last weekend - I went to London to see my Uni girls. It was great to catch up and my friend lives right opposite a wall that has two Banksy's painted on it. They are brilliant and I am fascinated by the mystery that surrounds him.  I love London... for a weekend... especially around Borough Market where she lives but its too busy for me. So I am happy to be home and normal service is resumed!!

Right troops - hope you've not eaten too many treats and have a good day,
Liz (:(|)x
