Second on the 2nd: Celebrating T Tuesday's Anniversaries

T Stands For Tuesday's weekly post will go live later today.  If you are looking for it, please check the post after this one.

Today I thought I would look back at former T Tuesday Anniversaries.  Not my normal Second on the 2nd posts, this one is mostly photos from the past few years.


These are from Year 1, on July 14, 2014, the day T Stands For Tuesday turned ONE.  I celebrated with a root beer float.


This is where, in late June, 2015, I suggested we have an ATC swap for Year 2.

Year 2 landed on July 20, 2015.

This was the ATC I created for my PIF partner.


T turned 3 on July 18, 2016.

For my ATCs, I dyed some fabric, then attempted to stamp on the fabric, which I think is a disaster.  Live and learn, stamping and I are not friends.


This is from July 17, 2017 and was your invitation to join the T party.

Please remember, T goes live every MONDAY at 4:00 pm Central Time because it is already Tuesday in many parts of the world.  Unfortunately, I couldn't find the ATCs I made for 2017, but I made four and used playing cards if I remember correctly.  After an exhaustive search,

these were my Year 4 ATCs.  The sentiment?  "This cup is 4 you."

Now it's time to share your Second on the 2nd.  The rules are quite simple and everyone is welcome to join the fun look back.  All you have to do is bring back a post that you are especially proud of, or perhaps one you shared before anyone knew your blog existed.  Any post, any genre, any artistic endeavor is acceptable.  Then link below (direct links only, please) and Bleubeard and I, along with other Second on the 2nd friends, will be by to visit.  Please be aware this link is only open for five days, so linking on the 2nd is preferred.

Please check the next post after this one for T Tuesday this week.

I like the colours on your painted fabric, even though the stamping didn't come out perfectly.
Have a nice weekend Elizabeth.

Hello Elizabeth and Bleubeard.
I do like your party invitation photos, they look so inviting,what a nice idea to repost these.
The ATC is terrific with the pink and lime cups and the sewing.
I think your stamping on fabric is perfectly fine, stamping on fabric is a faff involving padding and the right paint, I've never had much success with it.

Hello Elizabeth, thanks for your great comment on Orange E. and thanks also for creating the "Second on the 2nd" idea.
Have a great day, you and the boys.

Just popped back to say - those stamps have already had quite a lot of use on cards that have, I confess, usually been last minute ones that haven't got photographed! A lot of my cards flowery or otherwise often don't have time to stop and pose !! Grin:-) I know - I need to get my act together!! Hugs, Chrisx

You know I have just popped over to be nosy hee hee!! I actually followed Chris' link but suppose i'm nosy for doing that too.
I've loved looking at your past T Day posts of previous Anniversaries, a super achievement and in true blogging style having something to post about is awesome.
T Day Hugs and i'll catch you on the other side of Tuesday.. Tracey xx
P.S Fabric can be a tricky wee thing to stamp.. you did great ;)
