 Please take our top three badge if you haven't already got it, well done ladies.

Hi all, just thought I'd better nip on and say sorry but if you've just read the header and not the body of the text, I may have misled you. Caz has chosen Kimono as her theme not Heading to the Far East. So much for me trying to keep things a little bit more interesting!

Hello everyone and what has happened to our summer weather? We seem to be having extremes again but I guess at least it gives us something to talk about doesn't it.

Last week Jocelyn chose our theme and judging by the entries which were all lovely and very varied you enjoyed it too, Jocelyn will be choosing her favourite three and I'll be back later in the week to let you all know who gets the top spot.

This week Caz is back with us and has chosen Kimono as her theme for the week, oriental cards were very popular for a time and seemed to go out of style but they are back again and as you will see by the teams work there are varying degrees of orientalness if that's a word that all look great and fit the topic perfectly.

We still have Wynn with us and her card is stunning this week so as usual we will start with her.

That's the teams ideas and now it's over to you.

We look forward to visiting your Blogs but in the meantime here is our usual little reminder......

Please link to your post and not your blog, I know we say this every week but we still have people who link to the blog which means we have to trawl through posts to find the entry at times.  Please, please use something from a CD somewhere in the making of your project and give the CD credit. We still get the odd entry that has not had a CD used in the making and although they are lovely to see they won't be considered for receiving any prizes on offer and the team will not visit to comment.
Finally the most important bit - Have Fun!
