The lucky dog, Trostky from Dr. Digi's House of Stamps, is one happy camper today! During the night while he dreamt of chasing cats and squirrels, the Easter Bunny was busy hiding bones! Although he's found several, there are more waiting and one even has meat on it!

I hope you have a Blessed Easter!

Two-fer Day

I'm sharing the last of my Easter cards today. Both images are from Bugaboo Stamps.  The top card is Happy Easter to Ewe.  The bottom card is Happy Keester! Take your pick but either way I am wishing you a Happy Easter filled with blessings. And I sure hope the Easter Bunny stops at your house and fills your basket with lots of chocolate, jelly beans and colored eggs!

Deirdery Dunderton, Scarecrow and the Tin Man

With a loud collective sigh of relief, the final curtain came down on Doctor Digi's House of Stamps' production of The Wizard of Oz with a loud thud! The show was doomed as soon as the news leaked to Deirdery Dunderton and she was able to put into action a plan to prevent her talented sister thespians from trying for the lead by greeting them with a large plate of cookies laced with fast-acting laxatives the evening of auditions! During each performance, the agony the cast and crew had to endure was lessened thanks to a quick thinking director, by handing out ear plugs to spare them from the horrible sound of the Diva's voice.  Both the Scarecrow and the Tin Man threatened the entire company with a lawsuit if their real identities were ever revealed. Word has it that next year the show will be The Hunchback of Notre Dame, with you-know-who playing the mute hunchback!

Aquilegia Foliage

The delightful Aquilegia Foliage is from Janey's Dig Designs! I resized the digi twice and printed it directly on designer paper then added a little distress ink! Easy to create with and if you change the sentiment it could be used for different occasions or include the image along with floral embellishments.

Fly Fishing

The wonderful Fly Fishing from Just Inklined is a great image for masculine cards or for someone obsessed with angling! Below is a picture with the tag removed but unfortunately my camera does not like the shine from crackle paint!

Pay Backs are Tough!

I lost my balls!
Trying to be a good citizen, I inconvenienced the entire pack by removing all evidence of food and water so that our stray, Henry O. Chestercat, could keep his appointment with the vet to undergo "manhood" surgery. After a restless night worrying about driving conditions because of the snow and worrying if Henry would escape from the house, finally it was time to leave! Henry was tucked in his box on the floor in the back of the car and we were on our merry way! Several miles down the road I glanced over to my right and there sat Henry, watching the moving windshield wipers while trying to decide if he needed to attack! After considerable consideration he opted instead to drop to the floor to poop and pee then bounced back on the seat with a smile of satisfaction and decided to rest for the remainder of the ride. So, pay backs are tough and smelly!

Green Fingers and Thumbs

Deirdery is determined to have the prize winning marrow this year! So determined, she purchased a cow to ensure fresh manure plus a budget-busting apparatus to store last year's marrow at just the right temperature until the day she could break open the marrow and harvest its seeds for planting! Even though there are several days until the first day of spring, and even longer until the danger of frost has passed, Deirdery, posing as Dr. Digi's House of Stamps adorable gardener, Green Fingers and Thumbs, has decided today is the day to get cracking on this year's blue ribbon! She shoveled the manure and mixed it into the earth and now she's ready to split open the marrow and collect the seeds. Won't she be upset when she finds that over the winter critters have made a lovely home inside her prized marrow and have gotten overly plump indulging in seeds!

Wash Day

It's a beautiful day at Dr. Digi's House of Stamps, so beautiful in fact, its Wash Day! Everyone is busy doing laundry and hanging it out to dry unaware that they are ground zero for a huge migration of birds? Hope the sun is still shining tomorrow because I think it will be another wash day!

Daylily Beth

Even though I am the daughter and granddaughter of florists, I have a very black thumb! When we first moved into our home I was delighted to see daylilies blooming in our yard. Now twenty plus years and eight beautiful Golden Retrievers later, the daylillies still bloom each year! Unlike the Dropwort, when I started creating with Daylily Beth, named in honor of a gardening friend of Janey's Digi Designs, I knew the flower!

Ladies that Lunch

One of the few things I miss about working is grabbing a bite while trying to catch up on all the news with coworkers during lunch hour. Now I go with good friends and we can sit and chat all afternoon over adult beverages! I'm guessing the delightful Ladies that Lunch from the Best of Just Inklined 2012 CD ROM are enjoying a leisurely lunch since they are ready for dessert and coffee!
