Welcome to MARCH!!! already!

Morning all,

Welcome to Friday again - it's the WEEKEND!!! Who can believe it's MARCH already!! What happened to the first two months? Hope you have something fun planned. A quiet weekend for us after we were both away last weekend but separately!!! It was CRAFTATHON 2013 for me and a group of crazy crafters - in case you missed it there are photos on a separate page on this blog (accessed via the link on my side bar) - do check out what a fun time we had. Hubby was away on a boys reunion dinner and had a fab curry at the Eastern Eye in Plymouth - no pix, sorry!

Anyhoo, broadband still live so crafting yesterday. Since it's already March I decided to crack on with my Rudolph Day challenge for Auntys forum and Craft Mad and Loving It - to ensure at least some Christmas cards will be ready for 2013!



Materials used:
  • 15cm square, 300 gsm scallop edged white card and matching sized envelope
  • Red card - for matting
  • DCWV and My Minds Eye (I think) papers
  • Martha Stewart edge punch from one of her PATP sets
  • Iridescent snowflakes from Michaels
  • Sparkle 'n Sprinkle sentiment and Dimension bauble inked using Memento tuxedo black
  • Alcohol markers to colour bauble
  • Glossy Accents to give the bauble a high gloss and dimensional feel

Auntys presented a sketch (see below - set by Jo) and CMLI's Kylie presented a card lift where we could take any element from her card, lift it and create our own!

And now for the Friday Funny - so sorry to have missed last week - did you miss me? This week's funny came courtesy of my pal, Liz's hubby Graeme! Thanks, mate!

A bit of culture for a change .... the beautiful statue of David



After a two year loan to the United States, Michaelangelo's statue of David is being returned to Italy .....

Have a great Friday and a fantastic weekend

Some great cards, both very different. You drift between styles very easily and they always look great.
How is it March already? I've asked myself the same thing! Fab Friday Funny btw ;)
