Happy New Year - Dilly Dilly

Well Happy 2018 to all, I know, I know I am a little late
but the wish for a happy, healthy and crafty New Year is
still meant very much.

We say this every year or it seems to get worse every year but this 
past holiday season really kicked my butt or got me so
chasing my tail I couldn't get anything done. 
I did manage to get this little project done just in the
knick of time to give my brother-in-law for Christmas.
He is a pretty funny guy so always try to do something with a chuckle
for him.  

           Recently a beer commercial came out where there are several different
medieval versions which all at some point they
say "Dilly-Dilly".  Well my hubby and his brother now are
always saying "dilly-dilly" to each other for any old
reason that suits their fancy at the time, so I thought it
would be perfect to make him this shirt.

I was pretty happy with how it turned out, I think I chose the perfect
font and the crown is symbol from the Ancient font.
Sorry the picture is not so great but at least you can see it.

Our theme or challenge this month  at the Crafty Awesomeness Challenge 
was to use something you got
for Christmas in your project, well I didn't get anything crafty 
for Christmas but I got a new laptop (woo-hoo) so I used it to design this
in Cricut Design Studio and cut it out with my Cricut Explore.
I used HTV or heat transfer vinyl and ironed it on the shirt.

So head on over and join in the Crafty Awesomeness Challenge,
there is a $20 Kit & Clowder gift card up for grabs.

Well, I thought I would throw this in here, since it is that
same crazy BIL birthday this month.  Here is the card
I made for him.
The image I have had for years and is from
Digis with an Attitude but unfortunately I don't think they
are in business anymore.

Oh I know just what you mean about being behind on stuff this last end of year! We got a puppy in October and our lives are not the same! I find it so hard to get up to my craftroom now until the guys are back from work so I end up crafting in the evening which is not the best in the UK as the weather is so poor.
Anyway less of that and more Happy New Year to you too. I love your shirt, I bet they both need one now though. It's funny how an advert can catch on in the household, we have one over here which makes my hubby die and uses the phrase a lot too 😊.
Your card is fun too, take care.
