Old Skool - A Joiner Themed Thank you.

Well the joiner has finished the crafty blogger kitchen (no pics yet as it still needs painting, and I've only got as far as the patchwork sample stage :( ) Anyway, I decided to thank Graham our fab joiner with a little card.
I went back in time for this one with a Sizzix doll. It seems ages since I did a character card, and you don't seem to see as many of them around these days , hence the Old Skool title. I don't have the doll dies, I just accumulated lots of bits from various ebay purchases over the years. Here's the finished product, complete with mini joiner.

Card from papermill shop
Screw head brads from Crafts By Carolyn
Dies: Sizzix Doll body and clothes; quickutz tools and toolbox, Cuttlebug red tag sale alphabet

I have also been playing along with HerSpace:MySpace this week but not had chance to post so here's my catch-up

Autumn has arrived in my garden, not sure what happened to summer though!


This was one of the few days of summer we had this year - taken in May on a camping weekend in north Yorkshire.


A stack of my Cuttlebug dies on a very well worn cutting mat.


Yes, another shot of Morecambe and the Midland Hotel, taken last Saturday. These are the two seahorse carvings on the front of the building which were carved by Eric Gill. Aren't they beautiful.
