CD Sunday - 'Once upon a time' - chosen by Carol (moi)

Good morning to one and all.  I hope you haven't had the week we have had here in the South East.  Torrential rain, thunder and lightening -  which has been quite spectacular at times - and of course electrical problems. Like a lot of homes that have been altered and/or extended we have two fuse boxes with several trip switches.  We are awaiting a visit from an electrician. We believe that an electrical surge has knocked out one of our trip switches and half the house has no electricity.  Very fortunately it is the sleeping half of the house so I still have my computer up and running.

Back to business.  It was my turn for the theme choice for the next two weeks and I have chosen - 'Once upon a time'.  I thought it would give a wide base for ideas.  Most bedtime stories read to the little ones start with those special words and of course all those made up ones start the same way.  I was never very good at the made up ones.  I think my three were too smart and would pick me up when I made a mistake.

I have used a favourite source of material for my card and turned it into a belated Birthday Wishes card which has gone to the recipient -  and I am pleased to say she liked it.  My source was MCS - A Very Important Date.  Here is my card:

The White Rabbit and the watch are decoupaged and I added the words apart from the Lewis Carroll quote.
I do hope you like the theme and I look forward to visiting many Blogs - old friends and new.
