BLIND DATE

NOW TRADED
This week's challenge on TMTA was to say who you'd pick as your blind date! Well I've been saying for years that the person I'd most like to have dinner with is Stephen Fry (seen here playing Oscar Wilde, and I wouldn't mind having dinner with him either). For a start he's very tall and big cuddly bear of a man, and he's just so clever and witty but also kind, it would be scrumptious ... and of course he'd be the perfect gentleman!

Because he seems like an old fashioned sort of chap who might have been happier in times gone by I did him in vintage mode. I dyed some lace with Distress Ink, added a stamped tape measure and some other bits and pieces.

I shall look forward to my dinner date - hope he gets here soon ...!

Thats a rather nice photo you found of Mr Fry, I must say! (It looks like he's hurrying to get to you, anyway.)
A really lovely ATC Rosie, well done.
