Win & Tonic June 2016

I have to say I am still feeling a little discombobulated in my new craft room. However, I  am sure that once I have made a few things I will get to grips with where I have stored everything  :-)

So to help get me into the swing,  I have joined in with the team on the Win and Tonic page. 

You can win a lovely Tonic Studios prize here by joining in with this months challenge which is...

(Take your pick from the list below )
Colour - orange (of course!!)
Technique - create your base card from any Tonic die
Product - use any Tonic flower die or punch
Theme - one for the boys / happy Father's Day 

This month's prize is..

I chose to use the colour orange, and theme Father's day. On my card I have used an old photo of my dad playing in a little band that he and some workmates formed. As they were all carpenters and tradesmen, they made their own bandstands. They must have had great fun. I believe they called themselves Miller's Merrymakers. Millers was the firm they worked for at the time.
Here's the picture a bit closer...It's a rather tatty picture, but the only record of it my dad has. My dad is the one seated at the piano.

I used a lovely selection of Tonic Dies to embellish my card. I love the music dies. They are so cool.
 Inside the card it says..."and all that jazz!"

My dad is away his holidays just now, but he doesn't read my blog, so I'm safe to post it here for now ;-)
I hope you'll join in with the Win and Tonic challenge.

Have a lovely day
