Wake Up Dad!


OMG Andy Murray has just won Wimbledon!!  Wow!  I didn’t watch the match (not too keen on tennis), my nerves couldn’t take it anyway.  But well done him.  What a star!
Anyway it is another scorcher here in Oxfordshire.  My poor dogs are walking around with their tongues permanently hanging out.  Wish I could do that.  Might try it later!
So, to my offering today.  I call it …..’Wake Up, Dad!’

War & Peace, a right riveting read.

I used Brenda Pinnack DP’s and the stamp is Fizzy Moon coloured with Pro and Flexmarkers.

Close up.

The sentiment and ornate corners are Tattered Lace dies and the word ‘Dad’ was made up using Britannia alphabet dies.  I cut a ‘shadow’ for them all from the brown card I used for matting.

Shadow die-cutting.

I decided that the whole design needed something extra so I made a book using a Spellbinder die and scribbled words on the page (Shakespeare it isn’t!).  However I included a book mark to make sure Fizzy Moon did not lose his place.

My literary classic!

And there it is.  I am now off for a cold drink and probably a Magnum.  

Mmmmmm Magnum.

Smiling always (melting like my Magnum actually)
