TGI Friday peeps - and FRIDAY FUN TIME!!!

Morning and welcome to another Friday . . . hope you all have a great weekend planned. We're expecting pals, Wynneth and Tom, to pop in on their way home from their Spanish vacation - if they're not too tired. The girls will talk craft-y stuff and the guys will probably talk about my hubby's latest make - a radio controlled helicopter! There may be demonstrations but, hopefully, no tears before bedtime!!

On Saturday our friends, Liz and Graeme, are coming to dinner and we shall (hopefully before we crack open a bottle!) be booking Liz' flight to Orlando for some time in April so she can join us!! YAY

Right - back to what I got up to yesterday . . . I wanted to have a go at Rosie's Christmas recipe challenge over on Craft Mad & Loving It and this week the recipe was: "Sticky gingerbread with white icing" she reckons we need to include the following:
•Something mouthwateringly gingerbread like.
•Some icicles or snowflakes
•Two brads
•a bow and button on the top to finish.
So here is my card . . . I didn't have a gingerbread image so improvised with this cute image
Materials used:
  • 180mm x 125mm white 300gsm card and envelope
  • Funstamps Image inked in VIVID blue ink on to white card and coloured using pro markers
  • Crystal stickles, pearl paint and crystal glamour dust
  • Light blue matting layer
  • Dark Blue matting layer
  • Silver mirri card layer
  • Blue organza ribbon (from the wondrous Michaels)
  • Two silver snowflakes and two silver domed brads
  • Inkadinkado Christmas sentiment inked in VIVID blue
Hope you like it and I do hope that you will leave me a comment.

And now on to the Friday Funny which, this week came from my pal, Lilian, and is kind of topical since my posted card of today is a Christmas card! ENJOY!

Have a great Friday and a fab weekend.
