I have always been in to Sci Fi, from being a little girl, Star Trek and Dr Who were regular viewing and the at the age of seven Star Wars was released and that was it, I was hooked for life.
There have been many developments in Sci Fi over the years, but the most recent "addition" to the genre is Steampunk. The baic premis is - following the Martian invasion in War of the Worlds, the Victorians appropriate the technology and combine it with the technology of the day, so if you imagine steam powered computers with manual typewriter keyboards you'd be about there.
To tie in with this theme I recently discovered Viva-Las-Vegas Stamps, well, what can I say, I need to win the Euro-Millions when it's at stoopid money. I need just about all the stamps they do, and then some! Suffice to say I placed an order for stamp plate 909, as I could see this contained a tardis. Well the results are below.

I also have hubby's birthday on Sunday so I had to do a hurried birthday card, so grabbed my KanBan stash and cobbled a Steampunk card together, and used the Do Crafts exclusive stamp (only available on the Creativity magazine) from their Chronology Collection. This card although I'm very pleased with it has been re-purposed for Valentine's Day. Luckily I hadn't used a Birthday Sentiment on it.
