Good morning my fellow blogsters and buddies.  I am scheduling this post (today is 7 Aug) so I do hope the weather is being kind - not too hot eh ladies - and that it isn't raining at least!   This is only me second steampunk style card and I absolutely lurve this image.   The challenge this week is to use a digi and the prize is amazing - just check it out on the OSAAT site - here!  You have until midnight on Saturday to get your entries posted.

In case you are wondering - I have just learned how to link the OSAAT site to my blog as above!!!!   Yay - thank goodness it isn't Friday, 'cos if you learn something new on a Friday you get another wrinkle on Saturday.  As I already look as if I could do with a good iron - I don't need any more!!!

I managed to get a little bit of my favourite glaze on here - on her glasses, the clock face and the turn-key on the top of her hat.  I also used some of that wishy washy tape stuff just along the top and the bottom of the card.  I quite like this tape and will have to use it again!  It looks a bit like the stuff I use on me fingers when I cut meself - I'm allergic to plasters so this would look quite - I would say 'cool' but I am not sure whether I should at my age - lol!

8" x 8" card blank
Steampunk digi - BBKakes, Stitchy Bear Outlet
Spellbinders - Wonky Rectangle
Memory Box - Pierson Corner

I hope you like my card, let me know won't you.  I really am pleased if you have the time to leave a comment but don't worry if you are too busy, I understand 'cos I am just the same!!

Big hugs to you all and keep well.
