Big Archie Butterthwaite from Dr Digi's House of Stamps

Meet Big Archie Butterthwaite, as you can see both Archie and his dog Butterball have not been shy when it comes to pies and pasties! However who's to say that this week the papers might not announce that pies and pasties are good for you after all, preventing the catastrophic inconvenience of an ingrowing toenail or the pain of a boil on the bum!

You can find Archie HERE and the sentiment comes from Funny Sentiment Sheet 2, to be found HERE. Hope you all have a good weekend

Be Mine Doug from Dr Digi's House of Stamps

Who could resist Doug? Such a handsome devil, although he might not be the brightest light shining in the harbour given his proximity to a mine!

You can find Be Mine Doug HERE, alternatively you can find his brighter twin Deep Sea Doug HERE without a mine. The amazing Mine Backing Papers can be found HERE, just make sure you use them the right way up (I learned that one the hard way!). 
Have a good weekend

It's Tea Time At Dr Digi's House of Stamps

I have a cup of tea by my side as I type this,! Sadly we have no biscuits; as chief shopper in this house I only have myself to blame. This card features one of my favourites, the good old Jammie Dodger, I don't eat Rich Tea as they don't have good dunking qualities, nothing worse than losing half a biscuit to the bottom of your mug of tea!

You can find all these images plus the sentiment on Tea Time Sentiment Sheet 01 and my new favourite set of papers, Tea and Bickies, can be found HERE.

Hope you all have a good weekend, we have our annual summer fair at the Society for Abandoned Animals this Sunday, I am manning the barbecue so have fingers and toes crossed for no rain!

Mycroft From Dr Digi's House of Stamps

Well, who could blame Mycroft, after all it has been rather warm this week and I am sure he was only trying to cool down! My five cats (yes I know Crazy Cat Lady status achieved) have been chasing the shade round the garden and the youngest two can't even be bothered to object to each others existence anymore!

If you want to add the delightful Mycroft to your collection then he is HERE. Hope you all have a lovely weekend and find some time to enjoy the weather wherever you are.

Summer Holiday from Dr Digi's House of Stamps

It's that time of year, pack your bags and go and explore the world, well we can dream can't we. I bet there will be a few of these camper vans heading to Glastonbury this weekend but maybe not too many hankie hat wearing old folk!

I took the easy route this week and used the pre coloured Summer Holiday image, available HERE, you can find the black and white version HERE, I also used the great new set of papers, Curves and Corners, which can be found HERE.

Have a good weekend

Kraftin' Kimmie You Are Beautiful

Have been making a few cards for orders recently plus cards for occasions, such as Father's Day, so today, in amongst the paperwork that needed doing, I decided just to play and here's the result.

I have had this Kraftin Kimmie stamp for the You Are Beautiful set for a while now but hadn't got around to using any of them, I had also had these Chalkboard papers from Craftwork Cards for a while.

So one card complete and almost all of the paperwork done:

Image from You Are Beautiful, Kraftin' Kimmie
Papers- Chalkboard, Craftwork Cards
Greeting- Craftwork Cards
Die- Marianne Designs, Magazine free spiral die

I'd like to enter this into the following challenges:
Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps- Anything Goes

Best Seat In The House from Dr Digi's House of Stamps

You know how it is, man comes home from a tiring day at work, the dog greets man like a long lost friend at the door, he dashes off to find man his slippers and man settles down in his comfy armchair with the paper and his pipe!

Not anymore, man's dog has had a tiring day chasing his tail and running in his dreams, so man's dog gets comfy in the old armchair and man should be very, very grateful that his slippers haven't been chewed!

You can find Best Seat in the House HERE, don't forget it's Father's Day this Sunday and have a great weekend
