Biffo from Dr Digi's House of Stamps

It's the weekend in just a few hours, you'd think Biffo would look a little more cheerful, although Biffo has been around for a few years now and the prospect of children's parties full of noise and e numbers does not fill him with great enthusiasm, he'd rather be down the pub with a pint watching the football!

You can find the cheerful Biffo (Colour) HERE, his black and white counterpart HERE and the top part of the sentiment HERE. I also used X Cut Balloon Dies plus some random water balloons from a drawer in the kitchen!!

Baking Brian from Dr Digi's House of Stamps

What a beautiful day it is here and what a beautiful cake Brian has baked, he can cook in my kitchen anytime he likes if those are the cakes that will appear! Mind you it needs to be tall to take all the candles that would be needed for my upcoming birthday!

You can find Baking Brian HERE or Brian's fabulous cake HERE, one of Dr D's wonderful £1 digis.

Cuddly Critters Pig from Dr Digi's House of Stamps

 As this is the weekend we pig out on Easter Eggs, I decided Cuddly Critter Pig was the image for this week's card. I then couldn't resist adding an insult, mainly because the person is only a week older than me but he's still older and that's what counts!

You can find Cuddly Critter Pig HERE, I also used  Hole In One Hal's backing paper which can be found HERE, hope you all have a lovely weekend with lots of goodies

I♥ProMarkers Challenge 263- Kids Have Fun

March definitely went out like a lion here yesterday not the lamb it should have been, that said I think it came in like a lamb so it clearly got in a muddle. Well this is my last post as a member of the I♥ProMarkers DT, can't believe I have been on the team for almost 6 years and I am the last original member. It's been great fun but I feel it is time for a number of reasons. There are now a couple of open DT spots and the rest of the DT look forward to introducing you to the new members.

We are being sponsored this week by Just Inklined who are offering 3 digi images as a prize.

Anyway here is my card using Bouncy Onesies:

Nightcap Derek from Dr Digi's House of Stamps

I look back in amazement at how I could go out gadding as a student, get back home in the wee small hours, having knocked back a fair few ciders, and still manage to be up for a 9 o'clock lecture! These days if I manage to get to 10.30pm I'm doing well and that's without alcohol! Derek enjoys his naps these days, one mid morning, one just after lunch and then bed with his bottle (hot water not beer) by 10pm!

You can find Nightcap Derek HERE, the sentiment I used can be found on Funny Sentiments 02 HERE

BBQ Dragon from Dr Digi's House of Stamps

Look at this handsome fellow, he's seen that the sun is starting to return to our skies and is anticipating the start of the barbeque season. Of course BBQ Dragon would be a boon at any party skirting round the whole issue of the coals being hot enough, chicken raw in the middle, he has perfect flame control!

You can find BBQ Dragon HERE plus many more digi stamps beside.
