Oktoberfest Otto from Dr Digi's House of Stamps

Stealing a bit of Al Murray's repertoire here with the sentiment, but meet Otto, a proud participant of Oktoberfest which is not, as many think, a festival of beer, but actually the world's largest funfair. For those able to don their lederhosen then I am sure beer will play a part along with a bit of an oompah sound with maybe the odd whirl on the waltzers thrown in for good measure!

You can find Oktoberfest Otto HERE and his beautiful fräulein Lagerfest Lottie HERE.

Hope you all have a great weekend.

I♥ProMarkers Challenge 234- Make Your Own Background Paper

Good morning from a blue skied Manchester. At least there are still some summer days left although few and far between and very nippy first thing! I've not posted for a couple of weeks, been trying to get a few things done around here, sort of completed anyway!

This week over on I♥ProMarkers Challenge blog the challenge is to make your own background paper. We are being sponsored firstly by Marianne Designs, the prize offered will be either two stamps, a stamp and a die or two dies; and secondly Squigglefly where the prize will be 3 digi images.

I made two cards this week, both featuring images from Squigglefly, here they are:
The sky background was made in Paint Shop Pro

The gingham was made in Paint Shop Pro, with much digging out of brain cells to remember how it was done!

In A Flap From Dr Digi's House of Stamps

Dessie, the dragon, is in a flap as he needs to get to the party on time so he can light the candles, he's a little hampered aerodynamically since he accidentally singed a hole into his wing. Also he's not as svelte as he used to be owing to gobbling a few too many goblin sausages!

You can find Dessie 'In A Flap' HERE and also the sentiment minus the Happy Birthday is from Birthday Sentiments Sheet One available HERE

Sorry Stocks From Doctor Digi's House of Stamps

Oh dearie me, what's to do! This image will come in very handy as I am a bit rubbish at remembering people's birthdays! He does look very sorry with those big pleading eyes and that quivering lip, those hands clenched in supplication, begging for your forgiveness and I'm saying nothing about it being a man dressed up as the court jester!!! Nothing whatsoever!

You can find Sorry Stocks HERE and check out the rest of this fortnight's new digis HERE
