Welcome to Friday

Morning all

My mojo's come back with vengeance and I just keep making cards! YAY! I was trawling t'internet recently when I saw a card and just HAD to find the set of stamps used, Eva had simply listed materials manufacturers (which were: Dylusions, Stazon, Hero Arts and Carabelle Studio) ... bet you can't guess which one I searched first?!?!??! Anyhoo, I tracked it down and ordered it on-line and, on Tuesday it arrived with me but it wasn't until Wednesday afternoon that I got to play .....

My card

Anybody used nuance watercolour pigment powders? They're like brusho's ... saw this

Craft Club last night .. it was meant to be making chocolates and bon bons but there was a hiccup with the insurance or T's & C's at the venue so it was just "bring your own project". Always nice to sit and natter with fellow crafters though - I took some crochet. At least it wasn't raining so hard this week either!

And now for today's Friday Funny, I found it on Facebook and tracked it down on youtube! ENJOY

Have a great weekend - don't do yourself an injury trying out the yoga video, 'cos I know some of you MIGHT be tempted - you know who you are!!!
