Hi there and welcome to the Friday Funny!


Yesterday was a funny old day, glorious weather, challenge to make and a funeral to attend. Not unnaturally, the funeral took the edge off my mojo but when I got home I sat in the garden for an hour with my kindle and then decided to have another look at Pam's challenge materials ..... and here's how they evolved.

Additional materials used:
  • ATC blank
  • Black card cut to ATC size
  • Narrow white satin ribbon
  • Paper Artsy splat image inked in Versacolour silver
  • Image panel die cut in to a circle
  • Alcohol markers to colour image
  • Quickie glue pen and foil - to highlight
  • Glossy accents to give a patent effect

Here's a reminder of the materials Pam sent me as a challenge.

And now for the Friday Funny, this week courtesy of an e-mail from my pal Mary - thanks for this groaner!! - ENJOY


Tired of constantly being broke & stuck in an unhappy marriage, a young husband decided to solve both problems by taking out a large insurance policy on his wife with himself as the beneficiary, and then arranging to have her killed.

A 'friend of a friend' put him in touch with a nefarious dark-side underworld figure who went by the name of 'Artie.' Artie explained to the husband that his going price for snuffing out a spouse was £5,000.

The husband said he was willing to pay that amount, but that he wouldn't have any cash on hand until he could collect his wife's insurance money. Artie insisted on being paid at least something up front, so the man opened his wallet, displaying the single pound that rested inside.

Artie sighed, rolled his eyes, & reluctantly agreed to accept the pound as down payment for the dirty deed.

A few days later, Artie followed the man's wife to the local Morrisons. There, he surprised her in the produce department & proceeded to strangle her with his gloved hands. As the poor unsuspecting woman drew her last breath & slumped to the floor, the manager of the produce department stumbled unexpectedly onto the murder scene. Unwilling to leave any living witnesses behind, ol' Artie had no choice but to strangle the produce manager as well.

However, unknown to Artie, the entire proceedings were captured by the hidden security cameras & observed by the store's security guard, who immediately called the police.

Artie was caught and arrested before he could even leave the store.

Under intense questioning at the police station, Artie revealed the whole sordid plan, including his unusual financial arrangements with the hapless husband who was also quickly arrested. The next day in the newspaper, the headline declared...

(You're going to hate me for this...)


Oh, quit groaning! I don't write this stuff, I receive it from my warped friends and then post them here, for you to enjoy - you know you love 'em!!!!.

Happy Friday and have a great weekend - see you tomorrow for the new challenges

It's so nice to have the time to read your Friday funny for a change - yes it is a 'groan' one but still made me giggle at how clever some people are at putting these together.
Great little ATC - see you over the weekend I hope (here that is).
