Snow Fun at Dr Digi's House of Stamps

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

We have two wonderful sponsors, the first Marianne Designs, who are offering two stamps, two dies or one of each as a prize, and the second is Stitchy Bear Digi Outlet who are offering a $10 voucher. They also let the DT use some of their images.

Witchy Wilma at Dr Digi's House of Stamps

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.

Have a good weekend

I♥ProMarkers Challenge 244- No Patterned Papers

Good morning, now ex hurricane has slung its hook, it's merely cold rather than cold, wet and windy. However my apples are still clinging resolutely to their tee so clearly not ready for harvest as yet!

This week on I♥ProMarkers the challenge is to use no shop bought patterned papers. We are being sponsored by Visible Image offering their Cowardly Lion stamp set as a prize. I used their ink splats stamp set for my card and they offer some of the highest quality acrylic stamps I have come across.

Here's my card:

Lonely This Christmas at Dr Digi's House of Stamps

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

Flossie Bumblethorpe at Dr Digi's House of Stamps

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,
