I'm on a roll!!

Well this has to be a first for me!!! 4 posts in less than 24hrs?
The first 2 are DT cards, for LEJ Designs and Scrapbook Stamp Society. These last 2 are ME TIME! Tonight!

 This is using the frame that was left from making the Matt for the Communion card, and was just sitting there staring at me accusingly!
So okay I gave in, I obviously had to use it. It was a perfect circle, cut with my Martha Stewart Circle cutter, on Pearlised Cream Card! I wasn't throwing that away!!! Be serious!

So I had an aperture, now something to put in it? Okay so a floral arrangement? Off I went hunting through my stamps.......... rummage, rummage, crash.."You Okay?" came the shout from downstairs, "Fine, sorry!" was my response, trying not to bang my head on the underside of my table, while I rescued the stamps from the floor.....

 I found some stamps in my stash, that I bought last month from the Docafts site, a Hampstead collection, of papers and stamps, and it was un-opened and perfect!
hmmn..........okay Flitter! Now if you have NO IDEA what I am on about, then you don't know what you have been missing! And you need to head here to get yours!
So stamp with Flitter, then off to the sink to wash it, come back, Talc my hands to make sure that the gilding flakes dont stick to my hands, and dab them onto the dried glue. Rub off the excess, which for me NORMALLY goes EVERYWHERE! But this time it went back into it tub, Yippee!!!
Aqua Markers Orange, Red, Spring Green and Citrus, and a water Brush. Then Polish it with a piece of tissue.
Then run the frame through my Happy with a spellbinders Butterfly Garden Embossibilities mask.
Next was to find some card, now I do have quite a bit of card, but normally not just the right colour, but BOY was I on a roll tonight! Perfect!
I made a rectangular base, by joining 2 pieces of the light green pearlised card, at the spine, which I then punched and threaded some ribbon through. I heated the Organza ribbon with my heat gun, so it shrank and crinkled for me, added the main image and frame, then finished it with some perfect match gems.
This just flowed together, my favourite type of card, for me that means its a "Gud 'un."
So the job for tomorrow is to find Challenges for these 4 cards, Not that I ever win, but its just the luck of the draw, and some of the other entries are so seriously Good that it's no wonder they win, as they are FAB!
Right I have to go to bed, playtime is now over!

well maybe ,

I'll see

Let me think about it a bit more

I mean.....

Do I really need that much sleep?

an hour a day should suffice shouldn't it?
