Please add me to the game!

Just to be clear: I can use any color ink and draw on any color paper; right? (My favorite is silver ink on black cardstock.)

Is it okay to deckle the edge and mount on another card? Or would that not be appropriate for this one?

Thanks for hosting.

New house is great Lynne, I like it better than the Cowra house we were renting, it has a really nice private back yard, so lots of BBqs will be happening I think.

I will still be in the employment consultant line (despite applying for an administration assistant job advertised they offered me something else, which was really cool!)
