Well, yet another week has gotten away from me, where are they all going? Next thing I know it will be Christmas and I won't have finished my Christmas cards, luckily (after my recent trip to the mall I have all but finished my Christmas shopping!! How are you all doing with preparations for your own Christmas'?
I do have more Christmas cards to share with you .... in the shape of another batch of Christmas cards, must remember to crack on with some tags - can't really start wrapping without tags!
- 4 x 12½cm square white, 300gsm, scallop edged cards and matching sized envelopes
- Distress Ink in salty ocean swiped across the card, top to bottom and set aside to dry
- Inkadinkado sentiment and Tim Holtz (for Stampers Anonymous) mini blueprint snowman inked numerous times using Versafine onyx black ink
- Stardust stickles used to highlight the snowflakes
I've carried the design across the inside of the card and to the front and rear of the envelope too - sometimes without re-inking.
And here's the batch ....
|Each one essentially the same but with very slightly differences|
|And the co-ordinating envelope too|
And here's what I turned them in to - perhaps not my finest ATC but I'm reasonably pleased with the way things turned out, given my panic attack when I saw my materials .... but that IS why we call it a CHALLENGE!!!!
Additional materials used:
- ATC blank
- Off cut of red card
- Five small brads threaded through the holes in the "wreath"
- Stardust stickles to highlight the embossed "holly" on the wreath and the flourish on my sentiment
- Inkadinkado sentiment/flourish stamped using Versafine onyx black ink
- Inkadinkado holly border stamped using Distress Ink in iced spruce
And now for the Friday funny, courtesy of Jacky this week - thanks Jacky! ENJOY
George Phillips, an elderly man from Walled Lake, Michigan, was going up to bed, when his wife told him that he'd left the light on in the garden shed, which she could see from the bedroom window. George opened the back door to go turn off the light, but saw that there were people in the shed stealing things.
He phoned the police, who asked "Is someone in your house?" He said "No," but some people are breaking into my garden shed and stealing from me. Then the police dispatcher said "All patrols are busy. You should lock your doors and an officer will be along when one is available"
George said, "Okay." He hung up the phone and counted to 30. Then he phoned the police again.
"Hello, I just called you a few seconds ago because there were people stealing things from my shed. Well, you don't have to worry about them now because I just shot and killed them both; the dogs are eating them right now," and he hung up. Within five minutes, six Police Cars, a SWAT Team, a Helicopter, two Fire Trucks, a Paramedic and an Ambulance showed up at the Phillips' residence, and caught the burglars red-handed.
One of the Policemen said to George, "I thought you said that you'd shot them!" George said, "I thought you said there was nobody available!" (True Story)
I LOVE IT!
Don't mess with old people!!!!
Hope you enjoyed that .....
