It's Friday and that means the weekend starts here!!!

Morning all,
Honestly, I go away for a couple of days and miss so much in blogland! Sarn launched her Rudolph Day challenge - make two Christmas cards and Julie launched a new Rudolph Day challenge on Craftbubble 2½ (registration required) .... "Snowmen and snow scenes" - she asked to see some glitter too!! Shouldn't be too difficult but got lots of things to do first!! ....
We've been away for a couple of days, staying with friends in Blackpool, they're fab hosts and lovely people and we've had a great time. Thank you Mary and Barry for your splendid hospitality now ...... I'd like to share a couple of piccies with you ....
The sea view from our "penthouse apartment" - YES that IS the Blackpool illuminations you can see -
they don't get turned on for months but they have already started putting them up!!

Freeport shopping outlet and dock

Whitewell in the Trough of Bowland

The Inn and Church at Whitewell - a LOVELY place for lunch

This is the "advertising hoarding" for the John Ditchfield glass works
and is gloriously iridescent and is illuminated at night - FAB!

Stumbled across a Craft Central at the Burnside garden centre!

And even managed a little craft shopping at Freeport too!!!
So, all of this is by way of an explanation as to why I have no crafting to share with you but I hope you will forgive me for taking a few days to play tourist!!! I have a couple of projects under way and/or in the planning stages and even hope to get new stash inky so ..... there may be a second post today or, failing that, there may be quite a few makes in tomorrows post!!!! Watch this space!

And now for the Friday Funny, courtesy of Marsha once again - don't know where she finds them all! ENJOY

You are entitled to some time off, Kathy, and at least you gave us pics, and showed us your goodies. I expect they will turn up in your crafting in the next few weeks.
