Woo Hoo Friday again!

and the weekend? It starts here!! If you have plans (big or small) then I hope they all work SPLENDIDLY for you.

Me? I've no big plans as hubby's away at an airshow all day tomorrow - guess that'll be me crafting .... happy as a lark!
After all, I DID have a big old day yesterday with my crafting buddy (Wynneth) and her hubby visiting for the day, great to see them and only a shame they couldn't stay longer - maybe next time. It was also a great excuse to sit around with sausage sandwiches and builders tea and just natter! And that was just the boys!
Of course, because of the visit by the Silver Streak, I didn't get a whole lot of crafting done but plan on rectifying that very soon! So, just one spooky ATC to share today ...

Materials used:
  • ATC blank
  • White card cut to ATC size and coloured using a blending tool (with just a little rusty hing D.I. leftover from it's last use!) and D.I.'s in dusty concorde and black soot
  • Spooky mansion and run down fence by Cloud9 and inked in versafine onyx black - is it just me or does everyone else find these images are kind of warped and you have the devil's own job to get them to stamp nicely - EVEN when using a foam board to get a crisper impression?
  • Recollections skeleton inked in Versafine onyx black on to white card which was then cut out and run through my Xyron sticker maker - I dabbed with the blending tool (now with black soot as the leftover colour) just to take the stark edge of white off

Hope you like it - it's rapidly approaching THAT time of year isn't it?

And now for the Friday Funny, this week I got it off Pat! Thanks Pat! It came to me in e-mail form - ENJOY

Jack, age 92, and Gill, age 89, living in Stockport, are all excited about their decision to get married.

They go for a stroll to discuss the wedding, and on the way they pass a chemist shop and Jack suggests they go in.

Jack addresses the man behind the counter: "Are you the owner?"

The pharmacist answers, "Yes."

Jack: "We're about to get married. Do you sell heart medication?"

Pharmacist: Of course we do."

Jack: "How about medicine for circulation?"

Pharmacist: "All kinds"

Jack: "Medicine for rheumatism?"

Pharmacist: "Definitely."

Jack: "How about suppositories?"

Pharmacist: "You bet!"

Jack: "Medicine for memory problems, arthritis, and Alzheimer's?"

Pharmacist: "Yes, a large variety. The works.."

Jack: "What about vitamins, sleeping pills, antidotes for Parkinson's disease?"

Pharmacist: "Absolutely.."

Jack: "Everything for heartburn and indigestion?"

Pharmacist: "We sure do..."

Jack: "You sell wheelchairs and walkers and canes?"

Pharmacist: "All speeds and sizes."

Jack: "Adult incontinence pants?"

Pharmacist: "Sure."

Jack: "Then we'd like to use this store for our wedding presents list! ....."

Have a great weekend everyone.
