Good morning friends, Romans, Ducks! Lovely to have you all pop by.
Norah, its definitely not "oh no" chuck. . . . .its lovely to have you back and I hope you managed to get your bits dry lol!
Welcome to Janice and Chang Alison. Lovely of you both to come and paddle, especially this time of year lol!
Thank you for your extremely kind comments on my first MAWTT DT card. I think I shall be tinkering with a few more gatefold style cards in future.
Now today's card is residing across the Atlantic. I had made this as a thank you for the lovely Pamellia (click here to see her enchanting blog) and John then did something similar so I've held it back for a few weeks. However, Pamellia has kindly shown it on her blog so I thought it was time for an airing on here.
I had been playing with the mica so the stamped frames are stamped with Versamark and dusted with mica and the sentiment was done the opposite way. . . . . . . . .I Versamarked and mica-ed the entire centre panel, then stamped with Versamark to "lift" the mica off the card (if that makes sense).The inner and outer edges of the frames are edged with the Krylon.

And now, over to Karen (Karenlotty). . . . . . . . . .
Karen was the winner of my last Pond Prize, part of which was a pad of Docrafts papers. Karen kindly made this card for me, using some of the paper, along with sending a lovely note.
Karen's inspiration for this card was Sue Wilson and as Karen doesn't have a blog (yet!) I asked if I could show this fantastic gift on here.
So come on Karen, time to set that blog up. . . . . lovely to see your email entry at House of Cards Challenge and thank you for sending this super card to me.
Before I forget, Karen asked on my last post where I get my teeny tiny bling from. I buy packs of Dovecraft teeny weeny bling from a stall called "Every Crafts a Pound" at the NEC (No prizes for guessing how much a pack is lol!!!). Its £2.99 a pack everywhere else I've seen it so I make sure I stock up at the NEC. They do have a website but I think the postage is £4.95 per order.
I hope when I get up today, I won't be greeted with the same sight as yesterday morning. I drew the curtains in one of the front bedrooms, only to see the chap across the road opening his blinds. . . . . . . . . stark naked!!! Seemingly not noticing me, he then had an almighty stretch and stood for a moment surveying his front garden (that isn't a euphemism, he was actually looking at his garden).
Sadly, he is no adonis. I know beauty is in the eye of the beholder but I certainly wouldn't want to be beholding that in my eye every morning (not that there was too much to behold!!!) He was lucky he didn't let go of the cord of the blinds or that would have been an interesting visit to A&E!!!
Anyhoo, hope this week is kind to you all, with no flashing neighbours and no getting stuck in electric chairs lol!!!
Next time. . . . . . Mrs B's banners and die cut fridge magnets!
