Happy Good Friday


Interesting day yesterday ....... had a lazy start then phoned a pal and chatted for an hour (oops!). Yesterday afternoon I headed out with another pal/neighbour and we went here - she's on half term and we try and head out sometime during the holidays. We had a bit of a scenic tour first, via some eco houses and tracked down a Chinese restaurant which looks worth a try AND it happens to be right by the Bristol IKEA!!! We nipped back to hers for a cuppa and suddenly, the afternoon was gone! We were joined by my hubby ..... for another cup! and then he decided it was too late to start work on the planned meal which, he reckoned, required three hours preparation so it turned in to something completely different but still very nice.

Started work yesterday on a card which was meant to be a Design Team project but I HAD to use this particular image (in my head anyway) and then I couldn't make it work with the DT brief so started again on the challenge card and left this one as I much preferred it - so cute! See what you think ....

There's a little "smudge" on this photo but, trust me, it's NOT on the actual card!!!!

Materials used:
  • 12½cm square white, 250 gsm card and matching sized envelope
  • 12cm square blue paper
  • 11½cm square blue/white patterned paper
  • 11cm square white card panel
  • Penny Black image and Sparkle 'n Sprinkle sentiment stamped using Versafine onyx black ink
  • Alcohol markers used to colour image
  • Blue/white check ribbon, pleated and stitched on to bottom of the card, to "ground" my image

So, this one goes in my collection as a "just for fun" card!!!

And now for the Friday Funny which, this week, comes from Marsha in the U.S. - she's in the draw!! It's topical because EASTER is this weekend, and more awwwwwwwwwwww than funny but ........ can you pick out the real Easter chick from this line up?

Happy Friday and have a very HAPPY EASTER weekend

Love BOTH cards Kathy, sometimes you just have to go with the flow, rather than try to make a card conform to what the comp. wants. Happy Easter.

Sounds like the perfect day.
Your Steve is such a guy planning 3hour meals, even if he didn't find the time to pull it off! I'm sure you know how lucky you are.
Love your cute card and the sentiment.
