Welcome to the start of the weekend, with the Friday Funny!

Morning all,

With Christmas less than 13 weeks away I seem to have gone in to overdrive with making Christmas cards which is good news for me but perhaps I should apologise to those of you who may be fed up of seeing them ... More bad news, here comes another!

My card
The front and back of my card and front of my envelope
The inside of my card and front of my envelope
Materials used:
  • 10cm square, white, 250gsm card blank and matching sized envelope
  • Two white card panels cut to 9 and 9½cm square
  • One red card panel cut to 9½cm square
  • Stampers Anonymous Crazy Bird and Crazy accessory stamped on to a snippet of white card using Ranger Archival jet black ink
  • Alcohol markers used to colour images before using the co-ordinating die cuts ... sooo much easier than fussy cutting myself!!!
  • Woodware sentiment stamped using Ranger Archival jet black ink ... I picked this sentiment because of the flourish to the "T" as it was simply THE perfect snowy perch for my crazy bird!
  • Stardust stickles to highlight

I've been in Blackpool this week .... visiting friends and, since it's "Illuminations" season - we simply HAD to take a drive along the prom!

You can see the tower ballroom in the background

Love this decorated tram!

There are a few more pix but I've saved them for tomorrow as I thought that it would be too many in one post!

And now for the Friday Funny, this week courtesy of Jan - thanks mate, feeling pretty safe myself now too!

Have a fab weekend everyone

Hi Kathy, loving your crazy bird in his Santa hat. Lovely pictures of the illuminations. I've never been to Blackpool and wanted to go to see the illuminations. My friend and I decided this week to book a short coach trip but we've missed the boat! All booked up. Your photos are lovely. A really great Friday Funny again this week. Have a lovely weekend.
