Caveman Klob from Dr Digi

Just look at this handsome fellow, modelling one of the new line from Ver-saber! He's just the coolest dude leaning against his rocks. He likes dinosaur watching and loves to go out clubbing!

You can find Caveman Klob HERE and don't forget to check out the rest of this fortnight's new digis.

Joystick from Dr Digi

It's still a bit nippy outside so teens everywhere have an ideal excuse to stay indoors and play games! At least if they use this type of joystick their Dads might understand some of what is going on, none of these controls with 1500 buttons on them with teens instinctively knowing which button does what. The only time I ever tried with a fancy controller I shot a member of my team then shot myself in the foot. At that point there was much eye rolling and I decided reading a book was the obvious solution!

This joystick is another of Dr Digi's cheapies and can be found HERE and you can find the papers I used HERE

Good morning, I am so ready for spring, I can see the daffodils starting to break through, for December and January I always hope for snow but come February just start with the warmer stuff.

Tyson and Topsy from Dr Digi's House of Stamps

Who says cats and dogs can't be best friends, Tyson and Topsy have been together since kitten and puppyhood and despite her size Topsy is clearly the boss. Much like between my cats and my Mum and Dad's dog Max. Frodo will put his head in Max's mouth (Max just gives it a thorough wash) but if Max goes near Frodo's latest box of choice then there will be fur flying!

You can find Tyson and Topsy HERE and lots of other wonderful stamps HERE.
