Phew.... Excuse me, I just can't stop sneezing!!  I don't normally 'suffer' with hayfever - OK, I get itchy nose and eyes occasionally, but for some reason, this year I am really, really bad!  It began on Sunny Saturday when I sat outside to do my work for a couple of hours.  My eyes and nose are just like someone's turned a tap on and I'm sneezing like a hundred times a day!!!!  OK, that may be a slight exaggeration, butI've never had hayfever like it before!  It's weird, it's like I've got a really bad cold with none of the aches and pains that go with it, just a permanently red nose!

Anyway, over at Midweek Magnolias this week we have a game of Bingo for you to play.  Our lovely Cathy has created this fab bingo board and you need to choose a line across, down, or diagonally in any direction, or, if you're feeling very adventurous and creative, why not go for a full house!

So, eyes down and off we go.  I opted for the top line and went for Pink, Ribbon and Die Cuts/Punches.  Here is the card I came up with, complete with my home-made Frantage - gosh, I love this effect!  So much so that just about everything in the house is getting the frantage treatment at the moment, including the metal corners on my card.

The flowers I made myself with a punch that I've had for absolutely years - probably ever since I first began crafting at home.  I've never done anything quite so adventurous with it before though, but I love the effect of the flowers so much that I'm punching away like crazy every spare moment I get and making these by the sackload!  The bg paper is also one of my own again -all in all it'a a totally a DIY creation really! LOL!

The Frantage I made with some white and gold UTEE, a splash of pink embossing powder and a little glitter.  But, a little goes a long way so I think I'm going to be Frantage-ing for quite some time yet.  I'm going to be sharing this card with Totally Tilda's challenge this week - I've not participated for a while, but I like their heat embossed theme this week so managed to tie it in with my MWM dt piece.
Anyway, that's about my lot for today.  I've rambled on for far too long.  Thank you for stopping by here, and I wish you a good week! :o) xx
