Mum's got Green Fingers & Thumbs.

Morning Everyone -
This mornings card I've made for my Mum's birthday on the 5th Feb. I'm organized for once as they are going away to Edinburgh to watch the Rugby at the weekend so I had to be. I know its safe to post though as neither Mum or Dad do Social Media.

This image is perfect for My Mum and is called Green Fingers and Thumbs. I love pottering in my Garden and I definitely got that from my Mum. Anytime I don't know what something this or how I look after a plant - I get my Mum round to help. I'm not sure she has ever grown Marrows though...
This weird weather is confusing my garden - I have tulips and Daffodils coming through already so I won't be long until we can get out again weeding and trimming.

If you want to see the full recipe for this card, take a look at my blog here.
Thanks for stopping by...

Valentine Quackers

While not everyone may have a special someone who would qualify as a Valentine, we all know someone who would appreciate a fun card with a big hug.  This is my DT card for Dr Digi's House of Stamps, and I've made good use of this sweet image....Quackers.  Such fun to colour and sure to bring a smile.

Middle Age Stud

Hello Dr Digi friends!! I'm here today with a Roman "Stud" called Gluteus Maximus from Dr Digi.  Such a strong, handsome dude. I decided to draw a suitable background for the image.  Many hours of coloring the image and background, and I do mean many, I had a hard time deciding what to create.  I'm sure you have all been there a few times.  So he sat there, all handsome for awhile guarding my folder of images to color.   After finding the perfect paper, this image could finally stand alone in his glory.  Gluteus seems like the guy who prefers to work alone ;o)

Here's the inside of the card where I used Dr Digi's Funny Sentiment Sheet 2.   I thought the sentiment was perfect with the image and as a birthday card.  As the years go by, we know this sentiment is very true.

Hope you have a wonderful week! Big hugs

Details will be posted on my blog :o)

Caveman Klob

Morning  - Today's card from me is made with a Dr Digi image called Caveman Klob. 
I've never coloured this one before and it was fun to get the Promarkers on. I stuck with the animal print and went with loads of it!

I love his Neandethal brow - I imagine he is staring off into the distance waiting for the passing beast to club and drag back to his woman! Makes me think he would also be great for a Valentines card!

I hope you all have a great Sunday and enjoy your week.

Cuddly Critter Cow

I would love to get spring.
It is so cold here.

It would be so nice if we could sit in the grass again.

HERE can you read more how I made these three cute cows.
Would you like to use these nice stamps go HERE

Have a nice weekend and see you soon.

Speed Demon

The first time I saw this image I thought of a little girl who lives on my street, she learned to ride a two wheeled bike when she was 3 and she has been a committed speed demon ever since, although she wouldn't be seen dead in a skirt outside of school hours!

You can find Speed Demon HERE (aka Daisy), hope you enjoy the weekend, it's supposed to be ten degrees warmer on Saturday than it has been all week! Of course it's bringing the rain with it!

It's Weekend Wanda!

It's Weekend and here is Weekend Wanda!! 
Why do weekends take so long to come round and then go so quickly!! They just fly by.  I did get a bit of a lie in yesterday morning but then got up and did a 10k run (Still keeping my New Years Resolutions but we are only 2 weeks in!!)

Anyways the point to me telling you that was I then got home and was so tired I sat in my dressing gown for an hour before getting the energy to dress!! So Weekend Wanda (Minus the rollers) is pretty much how I looked in the afternoon. (Although I hope I don't have such as big chin!!) Anyone else get home and put the PJ's on straight away?? I think I would live in mine if I could - they are just sooo comfy.

So I hope you are getting chance to have a relaxed... ok... I really mean.. a Lazy Sunday. I won't be... lots of wedding planning stuff to do - so no lounging around for me but I do get a roast dinner at the end of the day!
Have a good one - whatever you end up doing.

Cuddly Critter Penguin

Do penguins feel the cold?  I just had to google it....and it would seem that they don't.  What a lucky duck, or whatever.  lol    For my card today, I've coloured up this adorable little Penguin from Dr Digi's House of Stamps.   I know that Christmas is over for this year, but winter isn't, and this little guy is sure to warm your heart....though not likely your toes!

Skater Stanley

The kids are in school
The skate parks are full
With Grandads out on their boards
A cut on the lip
The odd broken hip
Skating has its rewards!!!!

Stanley is out getting his daily exercise, he can do a caballarial with the best of them (no I have no idea what that means either, I just googled skateboarding terms)

You can find Skater Stanley HERE, hope you have a lovely weekend, I expect my Poet Laureate award in the post

Happy, Happy Birthday

Hello Dr Digi Friends!  I'm here with another fun image from Dr Digi called Walkies.  I don't know who is really going for a walk here.  I have a couple young pups that like to pull me along on walks and usually by the end of our walks, I'm pulling them along.  I thought this dog looked very happy about something, so this sentiment seems perfectly match with the dog's  mind.

I also used Dr Digi's Distressed Diamonds Background paper.  I love this paper, if you couldn't tell.

There's always more info on my blog with a pic of the inside of the card.

Hugs and have a great day :o)

Time For Tea

I whipped this little treat tub together for a colleague who is partial to tea and biscuits (lets face it, who isn't?!)  Made using the Tea Time Sentiment 01 sheet - I've simply added the sentiment over the top of one of biscuit images using the paint application.

Time for a brew I think!

Using one of the sentiments from Pet Sentiment sheet 01

Run Derek Run...

Hello - Today's card is using Run Derek Run. Its a lovely Sunny fresh day here which makes a change from the Rain in the North West lately but it also means there is no excuse not to get those trainers on and get out for a jog.

Apparently, Friday was the the day when most people give up on there New Years Resolutions, but I've done pretty well keeping mine so far! All our family got Fitbits for Christmas and blimey it has made us all obsessed and talk about competitive?! We are all trying to out do each other with how many steps a day we can do so this card is perfect for any of my troop at the minute. (My Dad was caught jogging on the spot to get his totals up and the dog is now hiding from him as he is so tired from going out walking all the time!)

So enough of me surfing the internet - I need to get pounding the streets.
If you would like to see the full card recipe, take a look over at my blog.

Have a good day and fingers cross this dry weather stays for a little while.

Trevor the Troll

This may well be how some of you felt on New Year's Day after a bit too much celebrating. I felt perfectly fine because I fell asleep in my really comfy armchair at just gone 8pm, briefly roused at around midnight when the fireworks went off then up properly at 7am to get ready for work! 

You can find Trevor the Troll HERE, perfect for the grumpier people in your lives!! Hope you all have a good weekend

Photocopy Phoebe

Good morning wishing you all a very Happy Crafting New Year, with Health and Happiness. 
 Well there is always one at the office party! Phoebe has had rather more than a few glasses of wine in her glittering party frock. But what you should not do is go round with the photocopy and ask everybody “does my bum look big in this?”  

You will find this image along with lots of other fabulous images HERE

Hangover Hannah & resolutions??

Well - 2016!! It's a big year for me and despite the fact that I know I will never keep them I have made a resolution to get fitter and lose a bit of weight... (Aiming for a stone... there its written down now so I can't change my mind!)

Part of getting fit would be to eat better and drink less but... I get so much pleasure from food and wine!!
This card is made using Hangover Hannah and I have done pretty well with avoiding any really bad hangovers this festive season... There has been a couple of little ones but nothing to debilitating - suspect that's cos I've been eating my body weight in chocolate and cheese along with the drink...?!!

So whatever your resolutions may be - whether you stick to them or not... Happy New Year. Here's to 2016!

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