Summer is nearly here!

You can always tell when summer is on its way due to the smell of burnt barbeque offerings wafting through the weak and hazy sunshine air.  And Bill's barbeques are no exception.  He specialises in well-done sausages and burgers that would make ideal frisbees. He can never work out why all the food ends up so over cooked - its a mystery!

For more details on the card, pop over to my blog!

Anglin' Andy


Kimberly, apart from being a damn fine crafter, is now a Dr. Digi guest designer. She'll 
be posting the ocasional card and this is her first. a lovely working of  Anglin' Andy. 


Kimberly says she used Promarkers and Flex markers and washi tape and all that crafty stuff 
you crafters are so keen on, but a video speaks a thousand words, and Kimberly has done just 
that. Here's our first Dr. Digi colouring Vid..So have a look at how to colour Andy in action.

Svetlana and Cyril


Looks can be deceiving especially when it comes to Dr. Digi's House of Stamps' odd couple, Svetlana and Cyril! They met as struggling actors who would appear in public with proper makeup and costumes to rehearse for upcoming parts! They were so convincing, Cyril would get senior citizen discounts and Svetlana, as his nurse, received free food and admittance to various functions and amusements.  With all the savings, they live comfortably in a lavish home unbeknownst to their friends and neighbors that their real occupation is that of con-artist!

Ambrose King of the Waves

Ambrose had his first swimming lesson in 1953 and he decided there and then 
that water was not for him. Ice cream on the other hand was. So he's happy to stay at a 
safe distance with a 99, and the correct safety equipment of course. I think Renata might 
be on the same wavelength ( no pun intended ) as this great card has got me hankering 
for an ice cream...

Svetlana and Cyril




Cyril was thinking that man flu was a good excuse for spending some time in bed. His wife, being the canny sort, decided that Svetlana was the answer. She didn't mind that Cyril would have someone lovely to gaze upon, every old man needs the occasional treat, but Svetlana, being of Russian extraction, was never going to be a push over. Cyril was out of that bed in a jiffy, Svetlana was awesome with her syringe threats, and he was soon on the road to recovery. 

You can find Svetlana and Cyril HERE at Dr Digi's House of Stamps along with lots of other fabulous stamps

The hand with the syringe is a little bit of Night Nurse Nina

No Ball Games

Gus is so proud of his greenhouse and he keeps it spick and span both inside and out and he is especially proud of his hanging baskets.  This year, he is hoping for a bumper crop of onions - the old fashioned variety. 

Gardening Gus could be visiting a garden near you for the rock bottom price of £1!  If you want to know more about the greenhouse, pop over to my blog!

Gardening Gus


Well now, doesn't Gardening Gus from Dr. Digi's House of Stamps have a smug expression across his face! Tomorrow is his wife's birthday and each year she complains because he always forgets and has no gift to celebrate the occasion! His wise old-bird of a mother-in-law was determined that this year her daughter would not be disappointed and sent Gus a letter to remind him! So early in the morning of the big day, Gus snuck into his neighbor's yard, dug up a prized glori-fat-coleus and transplanted it into a container to present to the birthday girl! Won't she be pleased, do you think she'll be upset he forgot a card?

Saucer Head Friday


Today is Saucer Head Friday, you now have a choice, you can grab the nearest saucer and walk round all day with it balanced on your head or you can pop straight over to Dr Digi's House of Stamps and buy this cute Saucer Head!

I must admit I am beginning to wonder if any of my sons will ever take their driving test, quite possibly we will all be zipping round in little flying saucers by the time they do! Clearly Mum is way too good a chauffeur!

A Cuppa for my Dad

When I saw this Image called Feet up and a Cuppa, I thought of My Dad, because every day my Dad has his feet up with a cuppa, He has 10 children, 32 grandchildren 131 great grandchildren and now 2 Great great grandchildren, so he has done his bit for the population and has plenty of us to make the tea, so every day is Fathers day for my Dad, You can find Feet up and a cuppa  in store at Dr. Digi's House of Stamps

That's Tragic

Crafting When We Can challenge has given Susan a little magic in her card making.
She's taken That's Tragic and made this fantastic card. She must have been attracted by
Melvin the Magnificent's prestidigitation, and who can blame her?

Knitting Champion

Knitty Nora, who once was the Knitting Champion of Kendal in 1953, is still very active in knitting circles and regularly donates all her finished items to a refuge for abandoned animals.  These sad and neglected animals find great comfort in Nora's misshapen knits and her weird and wonderful colour combinations are most welcome to the chameleons.

So here is a snapshop of Nora in action, proudly displaying the Champion of Kendal 1953 trophy.

You too can have your very own Knitty Nora (with or without sparkly pink fluffly slippers) as she is available to buy right now.  And to finish the scene, the trophy and coffee table have been added.

Look who stepped out of the world of Dr. Digi's House of Stamps and is waiting to greet you at the front door of his Gnome Sweet Gnome, it's Grimble Grumble! He heard you were going to be in the neighborhood so he decided to host a celebration. His friends are waiting inside to meet you, you'll find them close to the table filled with their favorite root vegetables and mouth-watering punch made from tasty red berries! Hope you enjoy your visit but don't stay too long because the band is really loud and there's not much room to dance!

Gnome Sweet Gnome


I think at the moment, in the UK, many of us are very fond of our Gnome Sweet Gnomes because it's so ridiculously cold outside still!! I know my gnome is very snuggly warm and outside isn't! If I could get away with it I think I would like my roof to be red with white spots, that would certainly brighten up the neighbourhood! Go HERE to pick up your Gnome Sweet Gnome and check out the other new images, you could add a gnome to your gnome!!

A Spot of Washing Up

All is well.  Dave is rather proud of his brand new shiny and squeaky clean kitchen.  It is not quite to his taste, however Dave does not look a gift horse in the mouth especially when it is a free kitchen.  He has been enjoying a lucky streak on the bingo down at the Legion on a Friday night and this is one of his winnings.

Flip Flop Fred who calls the numbers (down at the Legion on a Friday bingo night) said he knows a mate who knows this bloke's uncle's sister's boyfriend who works at B&Q.  And he got it cheap. So that was the prize a week last Friday.

And Dave is happy he can wash his dishes until they sparkle and shine when ever he likes.  All is well.

To purchase your very own Dishcloth Dave head on over to Dr Digi's House of StampsDishcloth Dave is unfortunately not free (like the kitchen) but for a nominal fee of £1 he can be your Dishcloth Diva.
