Hi there.....just what is it with our weather today???  Looking out of my craftroom window today I have seen rain, sunshine & SLEET!!!!!  But then it is November I suppose.  oooo not long till Christmas folks haha

As promised I am showing you what I think is a first in the chippie world........PUB HAND PUMPS...or to you & me...good old BEER PUMPS haha.  These were in my little DT parcel from TANDO CREATIVE & I knew just what I was going to do with them!!!  Jeremy's best pal loves making homebrew.  I don't like beer but thisis I only had half a pint & I couldn't stand up...such a lightweight hahahaha!!!!  Its his birthday soon so these were a must for his card.

For the background I used BG Lyme Rickey papers.  The chippie has been painted, glossed & embossed.  The 'centres' have been covered in paper & I made another set of 'inners' from card for the wording.  Those are his initials on there!  Oh of had to say Happy Beerthday didn't it? haha

Thank you so so much for taking a look HUGS & KEEP WARM! XXX
