Ambrose King of the Waves from Dr Digi


The hints of a summer yet to come are out there, the warmth of the sun on your back, trying to ignore the still chilly wind. I don't say I'm quite as ready as this for summer but Ambrose is practising for those well earned days on the beach. Here's hoping the summer will not be a washout.

You can find Ambrose HERE, now I need to resist the urge to go and get an ice cream from Kenny our ice cream man later. It's Friday and Friday is always Kenny day on our road!

I♥ProMarkers Challenge 215- Cats and/or Dogs

Morning all, well just anyway as it is nearly midday in the UK! This week on the I♥ProMarkers Challenge the theme is Cats and/or Dogs.

We are being sponsored by Dies to Die for who are offering a £10 voucher as a prize.

Usually I have no problem creating a cat card! I am a cat nut but yesterday (yes I left it late) I was completely mojoless. Made one horrific card, then coloured the image below but all inspiration was lost, even Pinterest didn't help. Yet today, no problem, card came together just like that, so slightly late here is my card:


Papers- First Edition, New Leaf
Sentiment- Stampin' Up

I'd like to enter this into the following challenges:
Passion for ProMarkers- All Creatures Great and Small
One Crazy Stamper- Anything Goes
Crafty Catz- Animals
Polkadoodles- Animal Magic
Crafty Blogger- Die Cuts or Embossing
My Craft Creations- Anything Goes

Hilda and Hercules from Dr Digi's House of Stamps


Now once upon a time Hilda's glasses weren't as good as they could have been. She went to the local dogs home to get herself a small house dog. The assistant being a wily fellow realised that Hilda would be a great dog owner, so he may have insinuated that puppy Hercules was in fact a full grown terrier. I think Hilda is not quite as daft as she might have looked but had already fallen in love with the fuzzy shape of Hercules! Now Hilda gets no hassle from anyone when she is taking Hercules for a walk; small children even look forward to seeing her out and about in the park as Hercules is a big softy inside and more than ready to give a ride or two.

You can find Hilda and Hercules HERE

I♥ProMarkers Challenge 212- Anything Goes

Good morning from a bright and sunny Manchester, I am liking this spring thing even if it is still a little nippy! This week on the I♥ProMarkers Challenge blog, the theme is anything you like as it is the ever popular Anything Goes. Come and join us.

We are being sponsored firstly by Marianne Designs who are offering a stamp and a die as a prize (see main blog for picture as my computer is currently having issues saving anything!).

Our second sponsor is Stitchy Bear Stamps who offer an enormous range of stamps and, to a lesser extent, papers to the discerning crafter! They are offering a $10 voucher as a prize.

Here's my card using Going in Circles from the Panda Bear Design section at Stitchy Bear Stamps:
