Welcome to the start of the weekend

Morning all,

I had a little delivery from Art From The Heart earlier this week and could NOT wait to crack the seal on the packaging!

My card

And my co-ordinating insert and envelope

Materials used:
  • 15cm square white, 300gsm, scallop edged card blank and matching sized envelope
  • 13½cm square white card panel and lime card for matting
  • Square of card with aperture cut out - to use as a mask, held in place with low tack tape
  • Adirondack citrus ink applied through the mask using a Tim Holtz mini blending tool and foam pad
  • Kaisercraft mini dots stamped using Adirondack sunset orange ink
  • Kaisercraft rocks image stamped using Adirondack watermelon ink
  • Imagine That sentiment stamped using Ranger Archival jet black ink
  • Stampers Anonymous image (from the bird crazy set) stamped on to a snippet of white card
  • Pencil crayons and sansodor used to colour image before fussy cutting out
  • Once assembled I applied Crafters Companion Spray and Shine to seal the water based inks to protect them in transit as this little card will be winging its way to a new home very shortly

I'll be entering the above card for the following challenges:
  1. Simply Less Is More - "WINGS"
  2. Paperminutes - "BIRDS"
  3. Lacy Sunshine - "THINGS WITH WINGS"
  4. Corrosive challenge - "THINGS WITH WINGS"
And now for the Friday Funny which, this week, comes to you courtesy of Lilian, thanks pal.
A few minutes before the church services started, the congregation was sitting in their pews and talking.

Suddenly, Satan appeared at the front of the church. Everyone started
screaming and running for the back entrance, trampling each other in a frantic effort to get away from evil incarnate.

Soon the church was empty except for one elderly gentleman who sat
calmly in his pew without moving, seemingly oblivious to the fact that
God's ultimate enemy was in his presence.

So Satan walked up to the man and said, 'Do you know who I am?'

The man replied, 'Yep, sure do.'

'Aren't you afraid of me?' Satan asked.

'Nope, sure ain't.' said the man.

Don't you realize I can kill you with one word?' asked Satan.

'Don't doubt it for a minute,' returned the old man, in an even tone.

'Did you know that I can cause you profound, horrifying agony for all
eternity?' persisted Satan.

'Yep,' was the calm reply.

'And you're still not afraid?' asked Satan.

'Nope,' said the old man.

More than a little perturbed, Satan asked, ' Why aren't you afraid of me?'

The man calmly replied, 'Been married to your sister for 60 years’
Have a great weekend
