I little something I'd promise I'd share..not my usual!

A while back I told you I was working on a project for my husband.  It was a leaving present for one of the guys retiring from the service.  My job was to colour the character in the middle.  I have used prisma pencils as the card used was provided from work and I wasn't sure how my copics would react. 
We all know, you find the perfect card and stick with it when it comes to copics and oil based pens! 
I played safe!

I believe it was well received and something nice to keep.  It has his material branch badge and all the Squadrons he has been linked to throughout his career.
Today I have been tidying my craft room...what a job!
Thought I'd share this picture with you.

This is everything that was bulging out of the box I made with the lovely Kath.  Can you believe I had so many bits and bobs to sort?  
It is the tip of the iceburg and you know what is said about should see the rest of the room!
If I stay on here I won't get much more done so I better disappear. 

I've also got a Sunday dinner to cook without my oven which gave up the ghost on Friday.  It should be fun!
Let the challenges commence.......catch you again soon.

What a great keepsake Erika. I'm sure he was well pleased with it.

As for tidying, I don't know where to start! Was going to sew but went to Aberdeen for dog food before a voucher I had for Pets at Home expired. Then son arrived with birthday card for Dad. Lucky I had cooked a nice gammon joint and made lentil soup for lunch so plenty for tea. Might even dig out meringues as he's famous for a sweet tooth too!

Hi Erika, I worked at Leuchars with the RAF for a year then went to Turnhouse and loved every minut of it. I then worked with the Navy for 24 years so I have a soft spot for the services. Bet he was well impressed with this keepsake. Clever girl in doing our bit. I have been very lazy getting around the blogs recently but am catching up tonight.
