Good morning everyone....

I think winter is definitely here!  I couldn't keep warm at all yesterday and when I was writing this post I was actually shivering, not good at all for the old joints etc LOL

Today's card, or more the technique for today's card is called 'Black Ice'.  It has been around for quite some time but I 'cased' Helen Griffin's version

All that is needed is  card base, mirri card, StazOn in black, Versafine clear ink pad, a stamp or two and the sentiment

The dark shadow behind and around the sentiment is because of the unsuitable lighting we have in this particular room, when photographing mirri

Another card that is so much nicer in the 'flesh'

A 6"x6" Crafter's Companion e/f is the prize today.  The scroll image, bottom right, is the design on the folder

Leave a comment if you would like your name entered into the draw, which closes at 6pm Saturday.  The winner will be announced on Sunday's blog

Until tomorrow....
