Friday and another weekend looms large ......

Hi readers,
It's that time of the week when those who work are usually planning not to do so - for a couple of days! Hope you all have something fun planned.

Burning issue of the day is probably what the weather will do over the weekend, having been sweltering all the week - whaddya reckon? Forecasters are saying that it will remain hot but that there will be an increased likelihood of thunderstorms - if it cools it down a smidge then I say "bring it on"!!

On a crafting front ....... Taking my swap materials (from my Isle of Skye buddy, they arrived on Wednesday) I set off to make an ATC and this is what turned up ....

Materials used:
  • ATC blank
  • Distress Inks: tumbled glass, broken china, faded jeans, squished on to a craft mat and spritzed. I smooshed my ATC through the ink, dried and repeated till I was happy - though it was HARD to bring myself to turn the heat gun on in the hot weather.
  • Hero Arts Old French Script image and Visible Image edging image stamped using the D.I. faded jeans ink
  • Swap image coloured using alcohol inks and cut out close
  • Swap flourish coloured using alcohol inks
  • Faux crystal gemstone used to embellish
  • Faber Castell Pitt pen "S" to draw round and define the swap image
Hope you and my swap buddy like what I made! Can't remember what materials arrived? Here they are again

CAS-ual Fridays new challenge (which runs for two weeks) is to "Use numbers" on a CAS card - I'm LIKING the sound of this challenge.

And now for the Friday Funny - there are a couple of them this week and they all came from my pal, Liz, though I did edit a couple out of the equation as a bit risqué for those of a sensitive nature! ENJOY
Nothing if not enterprising!

Women plainly perceive things differently!

This is probably the best form of sex education!!!!
Have a great Friday and fabulous weekend everyone, see you all tomorrow for some more challenges ...
