Friday post and Funny!

Hi there,

Hope anyone in the U.S. reading this had a great Thanksgiving yesterday - anyone off to take advantage of the Black Friday sales? I know our U.S. neighbours won't be .... they'll be busy putting up their Christmas tree - GOOD LUCK Roger!
My goodness what a wet and wild couple of days we've had here, I think I can honestly say that it hasn't stopped raining in the last two days - at all!!! Imagine the relief felt this morning to wake up and discover that it has FINALLY stopped raining! Just as well as I have cards to post off to America and Australia as well as some to European destinations - including the prize packet to Katiejane, for her winning caption!
I've been missing in action from my table of craftiness because of one or two things (lack of inspiration being just one of them!) and have also neglected my bloggy too - sorry, readers - did you miss me?

Not much crafting this morning although I AM waiting for modelling paste and glitter to dry before I can finish a tag ....



Materials used:
  • 260 gsm card die cut using a Go Kreate fancy tag die
  • Modelling paste, brass stencil, low tack tape (to hold my stencil in place) and a spatula
  • Mini glitter spoons, paper and ultrafine glitter in red, green and blue

Once the modelling paste has fully dried I shall debate how to finish the tag. Some options are:
  1. Distress Ink blended around the outside (red or blue?)
  2. Hand drawn line border, probably using either a blue or black fineliner
  3. Stickles glitter border (Silver or blue I'm thinking)

Any preferences, readers? I'll probably use blue/white bakers twine or narrow pale blue satin ribbon as a tie for my tag. Hope you all approve. I hope to get more crafting done today but that will be for tomorrow's blog ...... hopefully!
As for me, well, we don't "do" Thanks Giving Day but we did put our tree up this week too. Hubby went up in the loft and brought down loads of boxes (to dispose of) and also all of the Christmas decorations. My spare bedroom looked like a war zone and the only way out seemed to be to put up the Christmas decorations so that the boxes could be returned to the loft for the duration!!
It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas!!!

And now for the Friday Funny which, this week, comes courtesy of Marsha Tovar - you're in the draw!! ENJOY

A man is walking home alone late one foggy night... when behind him he hears:



Bump...




BUMP...




BUMP...



Walking faster, he looks back and through the fog he makes out the image of an upright casket banging its way down the middle of the street toward him.




BUMP...




BUMP...




BUMP...




Terrified, the man begins to run toward his home, the casket bouncing quickly behind him




FASTER...




FASTER...




BUMP...




BUMP...



BUMP...




He runs up to his door, fumbles with his keys, opens the door, rushes in, slams and locks the door behind him.

However, the casket crashes through his door, with the lid of the casket clapping




clappity-BUMP...



clappity-BUMP...



clappity-BUMP...



on his heels, the terrified man runs. Rushing upstairs to the bathroom, the man locks himself in. His heart is pounding; his head is reeling; his breath is coming in sobbing gasps.



With a loud CRASH the casket breaks down the door.



Bumping and clapping toward him.




The man screams and reaches for something, anything, but all he can find is .......... a bottle of cough syrup!




Desperate by this time, he throws the cough syrup at the casket...



and,







(hopefully you're ready for this!!!)







The coffin stops!!! Boom Boom! Thanks, Marsha!


Have a fab Friday and a GREAT weekend all
