Piff Paff Poof!

Evening all.  Blimey, one day back at work and I am schazzamed already!  I hope the rest of the week doesn't go like today has!

Well, there is a fabulous and fun challenge over at CARDS FOR MEN that I couldn't miss out on, it's theme is Myth & Magic, which reminds me of the opening sequence to my beloved "Merlin" series on BBC.  It feels so strange having Strictly without Merlin on the same night.  I know we now have "Atlantis" from the same stable, but without the delicious Colin Morgan as Merlin, there is no izzy whizzy let's get bizzy going on for me.  Speaking of Strictly, did anyone catch Hairy Dave doing the Jive?  I thought the judges were so harsh, particularly with his enthusiasm and energy.  I am not sure we were supposed to laugh all the way through his routine, but laugh we did.  Thanks Dave for the highlight of the night!

Anyhoo, my card for the challenge, here it is:


I've used the LOTV stamp Abracadabra
(am ashamed that this is only his second inking!)
Painted with Distress Inks (ReInkers)
Sentiment is an alphabet set that I picked up in Paperchase
Letters stamped in variety of Memento Inks
Cosmic Stars die from Memory Box
Matting layer cardstock from leftovers stash

Thanks for visiting, it's so lovely when you pop in.  Slice of cake to go with that cuppa?

Hugs, Squirrel xx

Aaah Merlin, i miss it too - although towards the end, we didn't allow our 6 year old to watch it, as it got to dark for him, Luv Sam x

Wonderful card, as always. The orange matt is perfect to set it off.

I thoroughly enjoyed the first Strictly dances. I'm sure Dave will stay in a few weeks because at least his dance was entertaining ... more than can be said for some :)
