60th Birthday

Hello ...

My best wishes to all my friends across the pond who are commemorating Memorial Weekend ... 
Here in Liverpool we are remembering the Battle of The Atlantic and the port is full of ships ... There are many stories and memories being told  and of course there will be wreaths laid for the fallen ... My father served in the Royal Navy during this period - he was only a youngster really ...
How I wish we could all live in peace ...

One of our male friends is celebrating his 60th Birthday in a couple of days ... Here is a card I made for him


Over at Shopping Our Stash there is a challenge to use a tool in our stash ... either never used or long forgotten ...
I have a Crop A Dile big bite and whilst I regularly use it to punch holes ... I have never been sure just how to use it for eyelets etc., I bought it second hand so the full instructions were not with it ... However, I discovered I could download them from the web (why didn't I think of that before) and gave it a go to attach the brad you see on the star


One problem though ... I didn't manage to squash the back flat without damaging the front slightly hence the gem stone lol!
I guess I'm missing something ...


Why is it that instructions these days seem to be in the tiniest of writing? Have you noticed that? Try holding a magnifying glass and punching a brad at the same time ... Heck I can't even see the little numbers on the tool! I guess you could say it's old age 

Have a wonderful weekend 

Till soon
