Lest We Forget

Our Granddad Walter Jackman b 1881. Served in the Royal Naval Reserve 921/TS, served on various RN Trawlers mine sweeping in the Atlantic, blowing up mines for safe passage for the convoys. Luckily he survived-or I wouldn't have been here! but it wasn't an easy job (nor were any of them). He earned his 1914-15 Star, British War Medal and Victory medal. I just thought he deserved a mention today.
John also had an Uncle who fought hand to hand with the Japanese on land and another whose boat was torpedoed by the Germans and they spent 10 days in an open boat.When he died Hedon Road was lined with people and John Prescott was there too.
My Dad was actually in a Japanese port when they came into the was and they had to sail out and escape under cover of darkness.

Artist Trading Coins and Katz

Morning I have two DT post today and the 2nd one is for the "Anything But a Card" challenge at Get Creative.
We are sponsored by The Papernest Dolls,Scrap'N'Dipity and Rick St Dennis whose "Katz" image sheet I used there are 4 images and some pawprints but I just used three of the images die-cut with Creative Dies scalloped circle,coloured with promarkers and made three Artist Trading Coins set onto teabags which are the perfect size for trading coins.
The textured stamps round the edges are from Lisa Horton which look a bit harsh even with 2nd stamping-think I need a grey ink pad.

I actually made another Christmas card using an image I won from Sheepski Designs-"Snow Happy" coloured with promarkers added glamour dust and snow soft-that magical stuff that I use every year and each time I open the jar it is full to the brim!!!

The B.paper was a craft mag freebie and cardstock from stash_-I will get through this stash although maybe not in this lifetime!!!I used the wonky layers to mirror the motion of the image.
