I♥ProMarkers Challenge 237- Feeling Distressed

Good morning all, the late summer continues in this part of the UK, although this time next week it may not be the UK any more depending whether Scotland leaves the Union or not!

This week the theme over at I♥ProMarkers is Feeling Distressed, we are being sponsored by La Pashe, if you enjoy decoupage you need look no further!

Here's my card using a cute new image from Mo:

Wash Day Blues with Dr Digi's House of Stamps

Wash Day blues, or oranges, or pinks or yellows. Whatever the colour there's nothing better than line dried washing! Well apart from someone else doing the washing for you! There's some very sexy undies on that line although the lady they usually adorn is clearly feeling rather shy in this image!

You can find Wash Day HERE, looks like we are in for a lovely late summer weekend here, can only hope Dr Digi is having similar weather further afield where he is holidaying with Mrs Digi. You can find the sentiment on Funny Sentiment Sheet 2 HERE

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!
