Another weekend looms large

Hi folks,

Big weekend for us at the purple palace, it's hubby's birthday so there will be celebrations aplenty - hope you all have fun weekends planned too.

Light dusting of snow overnight and with my new hip I find I've been "grounded" unless the thaw sets in. I was also planning to drive this weekend so hubby could avail himself of any "birthday drinks" proffered but with him delivering me door to door this looks less like a plan than it did! It's good to have such an attentive chauffeur but I had hoped to be able to repay the favour.

Yesterday I wanted to do come more scrap booking and ScrappyJacky had posted a sketch on the Scrap Addicts group which looked really versatile so ........ I set to work planning what I would use for my take in it - see below. Another crafting pal, Lauren, used this layout to fabulous effect - check it out here

And here is Jacky's original layout sketch ...

Also managed a couple of ATC's using up scraps - always good!

Materials used:
  • ATC blank
  • Black card scrap
  • Yellow card scrap with three rounded corners and one given the old Martha Stewart punch treatment
  • Stix2 double sided tape and a sheet of red/green/blue/gold foil applied
  • Sparkle 'n Sprinkle sentiment inked in Memento tuxedo black on to the yellow card
  • Inkadinkado image inked in Memento tuxedo black on to white card and cut out - twice
  • Black and pink faux pearls

 Materials used:
  • ATC blank
  • Costco paper left over from my scrap book layout
  • Raffia
  • Magenta background image inked in Memento london fog and stamped numerous times
  • Paper Artsy bird inked in Memento tuxedo black on to white card and cut out
  • Crystal stickles to highlight

And now for the Friday Funny .... courtesy of my pal, Sandra - ENJOY

Have a great Friday and an even better weekend! I'll leave you today with the chilly view from my window ....

Love the Friday funny, obviously. Raising a glass of red to your weekend and Steve's birthday. Great makes Kathy. Thank you so much for the lovely card. I am running late as usual these days there will be something on its way to you but I am worried you will be gone when it arrives. I suppose it will be a nice thing to return too - lol. Hugs Cherry XxX
