And now for the Friday Funny, this week brought to you by the power of e-mail, that and my pal, SandraT - ENJOY!!!
A Man Dining Alone

A man was dining alone in a fancy restaurant and there was a gorgeous redhead sitting at the next table. He had been checking her out since he sat down, but lacked the nerve to talk with her.
Suddenly she sneezed, and her glass eye came flying out of its socket towards the man. He reflexively reached out, grabbed it out of the air, and handed it back.

'Oh my, I am so sorry,' the woman said, as she popped her eye back in place. 'Let me buy your dinner to make it up to you.'
They enjoyed a wonderful dinner together, and afterwards they went to the theatre followed by drinks... They talked, they laughed, she shared her deepest dreams and he shared his. She listened to him with interest.
After paying for everything, she asked him if he would like to come to her place for a nightcap and stay for breakfast. They had a wonderful, wonderful time..
The next morning, she cooked a gourmet meal with all the trimmings. The guy was amazed. Everything had been so incredible!
'You know,' he said, 'you are the perfect woman.. Are you this nice to every guy you meet?'

'No,' she replies. . ..

Wait for it ... ....

It's coming ..... ....

The suspense is killing you, isn't it?

She said ... ...

'You just happened to catch my eye.'

(Oh go on you know you'll just forward it!)
Sorry about that - couldn't resist it though!

It's the birthday of another crafting pal today .... this time it's Debs .... have a fantabulous day with your family.
Have a great weekend everyone

Love your interpretation of the card Kathy, and will have to go look at the new technique once I'm back from getting the groceries. Joke was funny, but rather large, LOL.

That is a fun sketch and those grunge circles are extremely cool. Your chosen colours are really fitting to the style too. That's one rocking card Kathy!
