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.

Aubery Bumblethorpe-Dr Digi's House of Stamps

I remember in my teenage years, at the disco on the end of the pier, there used to be a bit of heavy metal playing every now and then. Of course, as a Duran Duran fan I ran to the bar to buy my soft drink (under 18's disco on a Monday night) and would never have dreamt of joining the head banging minions on the dance floor. A few years later (well maybe quite a lot of fews put together) I have soft spot for the old heavy metal bands and quite like some of their music, the music gets turned up loud and I sing along louder, but no head banging!

This just goes to prove that you are never to old to rock, even if the rocking bones might be a bit creaky! You can find Aubery Bumblethorpe (coloured) HERE and his black and white counterpart HERE.

Hope you all have a good weekend

I♥ProMarkers Challenge #259- Distress Those Edges

Morning all, windy and damp here but expecting it to warm up by the weekend! Not that I don't like the idea but it is Murphy's Law that means that a market Saturday warms up from Arctic just after I have bought some nice fleece lined jogging bottoms! Not that they will ever see much jogging!

This week the theme over at I♥ProMarkers is Distress Those Edges, we have Stitchy Bear Stamps sponsoring us this week, and they are offering a $10 gift certificate as a prize.
