Our Father’s Day Card 2011

Card for a Wine Maker
My Father In Law has taken up wine making and as a Father’s Day present we all clubbed together to buy him a fruit press, hence the card!
feet treading grapes
I’ve used a digi scrapbooking set from Scrappin Doodles called A Bunch of Grapes. I’ve only done a simple decoupage layer for the exclusive part of the card,  the other bits like the grapes, glass and feet have been accentuated with Ranger Glossy Accents.

A Happy Days Mooching

We nipped over to Bridgnorth yesterday, a lovely old town about half an hour away, it is so beautiful, all olde worlde, it even has a little funicular railway going up the sandstone cliff from the Low Town to the High Town, so cute!
Spotty suitcase
…. And naturally, I had a mooch round the charity, antiquey and gift shops.  I found this old, slightly battered spotty suitcase for £1.25 in Oxfam, it’s to die for!
oblong bun tinThen  I found this quirky baking tray in another funny shop, it cost £3, over the odds I think, but I was thinking about putting shabby chic papers and sculpted flowers in the bottom of each section maybe?
