T on Tuesday...T Stands for err...

Hello there Peeps!

I am late for the Tea on Tuesday with my friend Elizabeth and Bleubeard.  Unfortunately I only finished this project yesterday and the light was no good for taking photos so I had to take them this morning.  Being the first Tuesday back after Bank Holiday it was hard to get up early enough!

So here is my cuppa...

In case you didn't know, I am a huge fan of NCIS, or should I say Leroy Jethro Gibbs.  What I wouldn't do to be left in an interview room with him!  

Anyhoo...moving on!  The book that is next to my mug is another leaving book for one of the girls in work.  She is leaving the firm after being there since she was 16...36 years!  I was asked to make a book for her, which I said yes, then had to think of a theme.  Well, she likes my chicken cards, the last one she had was framed, so I decided it would be a chicken themed book.

So far all the girls who have signed it have told me they like it...phew!

I have used a mixture of goodies in this.  My Mind's Eye, Crafty Individuals, Stampin Up, Artemio, Penny Black, Tim Holtz, Bazzill, Memento, Papermania, Inkadinkado, WOW embossing powder and of course Snippets!  so off to the Playground I will run!  The flowers on the front were all in my Snippets tin - hurrah!

Thanks for calling by.  Don't forget to call by Elizabeth's for a cuppa.

Super cute little book. What a nice going away gift!

Bleubeard and Elizabeth said...

I'm a Gibbs fan, too. Too bad he's not available, right Hettie? And I never miss NCIS. I can see why it's the #1 tv show, at least in the US. My theory is, it appeals to all ages, from Abby (who is actually in her 40s, and Tim, to Ducky, who I'm sure the "bow-tie generation" adore.

That is a super book. You do such lovely work. And I know that gals at the crop got a kick out of seeing the Christmas one that you made.

So, is that asterisk for a reason (grin, grin, wink, wink)? Bleubeard's been telling me all day not to forget mine tonight.

Thanks for sharing this book AND your fabulous mug with us for T today. After all, it's still early Tuesday afternoon in my world.

I don't watch that show so I wondered who was Leroy Jethro Gibbs? I had to google him. Now if you had said Mark Harmon...I would have known and instantly agreed with you--LOL! I wonder if I can find that show in Netflix streaming...hummm...
Happy T-Day and I love the little chicken book!! :)

Kathleen said...

Fabulous creation, love all the chickens and the fabulous other stamps.
I certainly hope those who signed it realise how much work has gone into it.

OMGosh, special agent Hettie :) I LOVE your book! I love chickens anyway, but this is too darn cute--I'll bet she loves it, what a perfect gift :)
Happy T day :)

What a great book, Hettie - the chooks on the different pages are lovely - I especially like the chubby one on the bottom page - very cute! Chris x

Monday was a holiday (Memorial Day) here, too, so I also had a little trouble getting going today.

Your chicken book turned out so cute, and it will make a super keepsake for your coworker who is leaving.

Happy T Day!

Krisha said...

Oh girl! I have to have a cup like that! I am an avid fan of that show and of course Leroy Jethro Gibbs makes my heart do double time........grin

Oh ya, there was something else in your post.........LOL
That is a fantastic book and what a lovely gift.
Happy T-day

Here's hoping your Secret Agent wish comes true one day ;)

Hi Special Agent McFabBook! What a BRILLIANT mug that is . . . I need one! As you know, I'm a HUGE NCIS fan . . . there is something mega appealing about Gibbs - I could be his toy girl anytime he liked. Oh be still my beating heart.

Oh . . . see . . . you made me go off at a tangent . . . right . . .back to the leaving book . . . well it is just SUPERB. I love the chicken theme. Works for me!

Hugs, Special Agent Scott xxx

Sarn said...

Make that Very Special Agent Scott! LOL! (Still having palpitations over Gibbs) xxx

Golly, 36 years with the same company... that really is worthy of commemoration. And I absolutely love the funky mini album you've created. The colours on the cover are wonderful, and I adore those chickens. I love the fresh, simple stamping on the inside (another fab photo collage of the interior - very clever!) - an absolute treat altogether!

Oh, and I forgot to say - yes, I enjoy NCIS when I catch it - but for me he'll always be CJ's wonderful bodyguard in West Wing - head over heels in love with him and then... No, I won't spoil it, in case you haven't seen it! But very worthy of your affections!!

Di said...

FANTASTIC Sam - gosh you put so much love and work into everything you make. I bet the leaving girl was totally thrilled!

Such a beautiful and lovely thing to do - I hope she loved it - I love it very much, those chicks are fabulous.

Lovely little book!

MaryH said...

What a delightful chicken card, and your friend is going to look at this and smile. Think of you each time she sees it anew, and remember the fun days you had while working together. So very cute, and so much your signature style. I LOVE it! TFS & Hugs
