Hello there Peeps
OK! Who stole the big round yellow shiny thing that was in the sky yesterday? It IS still dry but it is a tad chillier here today.
So today is Tuesday. Day 4 of no-rain-since-October-phenomonon! That means it is time for me to share a layout and a cuppa with my friend Elizabeth and Bleubeard.
So here goes.....
This photo was taken on Christmas Eve. Yes it is my Dad! The cup one of my favourites which portrays a picture of a poster that was around on railways in times gone past. Hubby bought it for me on one of our trips to York Railway Museum. It was not the last trip so must be around 7 1/2 years old now. And no chips! I cannot bear chips in cups and if I find one the cup has to go! No sentimentalities about it - out it goes. If a handle goes I move them upstairs in my craft room for water or brushes, if it is a special one! No chips though! Got that? The tea is good ole' Glengettie - a Welsh brew!
This picture below is a better representation of the colours. The background piece is a VOS sheet of Kaisercraft I bought a while ago and have not used. Tut Tut! I just love Nutcrackers. I had a rummage in my Snippets box as well as the box with my Guernsey album in and found lots of long strips of plain cardstock, as well as the cream piece (second from left) which was left on my desk from the mini ATC album I shared last week.
I stamped the background sheet with two Crafty Individuals stamps and inked around the edge. I punched the purple/red TH strip with my EK Success punch and sanded it to show the core, likewise I sanded the orange and green strips too.
The tiny rosettes are VOS from K&Company bought many MANY moons ago and the little stars are off the same sheet too. The wooden DAD is from a pack bought in The Works a long time ago. There is something new on here though - the die I cut the star from. The star paper is a Snippet though, and once attached I stickled around the star using a black stickle.
I added the string on the photo 'cos my Dad always has string in his pocket, as well as some rubber bands. A star, well, that is my Dad! and a tag with the date on. The "Full of Joy" is from Cosmo Cricket.
Dobby insisted on standing still (for once) and having his photo taken so he could say "Hi" to my friends and especially Bleubeard!
Thank you for popping in. I hope you like my layout. I shall find out if Dad does on the weekend! Off to join my friends over at Elizabeth's with my cuppa. I am also taking the layout over to the Snippets Playground as there was a plethora of Snippets used on this layout, including the string which came from a the tag on my new shopping bag!
