Our Dad

Morning friends, hope you're all well.....and a happy Bank Holiday weekend to
those of you in the UK......I do believe we have a good weather forecast too.......
....but I think I'll just wait & see lol. Nothing planned here, the kids are all busy
doing their own thing so you know what that means..........lots of crafty time for me!!
We're all getting together for dinner on Sunday though so it'll be nice to
catch up.......and eat lots.....I'm sure them boys of mine have hollow legs!
Anyway, back to business......I got a bit carried away yesterday with the male to share today & one for Dt work. I feel as though I've had these
papers & decoupage sets for years & as I'm on a use my stash mission thought
it was about time they were put to use. A base of chocolate card, a cream card
layer then a paper layer......the topper is 3 layers of decoupage matted onto a piece
of cream card then mounted with foam pads. I added a banner die cut with the die cut
words then added a few faux gems to finish.....job done & more stash used!
Rightio, that's my lot for today......thanks for calling & whatever you're up to...
.......have a lovely weekend.
