It's that time of the week again

often referred to as THE WEEKEND though, if you don't work then, every day is like a weekend! WOO HOO! Anyway, enough of that, since the weekend starts here then I hope you all have plans.

Of course, yesterday saw the launch of a new Cute Card Thursday challenge which is "A DIFFERENT SHAPE" and has some lovely pieces from the design team to get us all thinking. Not sure I'll get the chance to play with this one but you just never know.

I'd also like to welcome another new follower, Anne-elise, hope you will find time to pop back soon.

Last night saw us out to dinner with my pal, Naomi, bet you can't guess where we went? Yup - you know me so well - RAJ's!! So, no pic of Raj's to share with you because I've already posted pix of Raj's on more than one occasion however, my dear friend, Naomi, does live somewhere rather nice - down a sleepy little lane off a pretty busy main road ..... but look -

Isn't this a nice view to step outside your front door and see?

Some of my readers may remember my pal, Lauren, giving me some homework in the form of a tissue box cover ..... I was so disappointed with the initial covering of Kaisercraft gold acrylic paint that I sort of lost heart in it. It would have been sooooooooooooo fabulous if only my Inka Gold hadn't dried out!

Materials used:
  • Tim Holtz tissue tape
  • Dylusions London Blue ink spray "smooshed" about using a blending tool (with foam pad)
  • Mod Podge to glue down any errant corners as tissue tape is pretty low tack
And then some phthalo blue pan pastel and some modelling paste

And after a bit more work ....... with Diarylide yellow and violet pan pastels, Hero Arts foliage too

What do you think? Is it NEARLY finished?

And now for the Friday Funny which, this week, comes courtesy of Pat Gilson once more - thanks Pat. I think this one will speak for itself - ENJOY!

Have a great day
