It's time for a Friday Funny

Morning all,

I'd like to welcome new follower, Regina Kolebabchuck, thanks for opting to follow me, hope to see you again soon. Couldn't find a blog for Regina but she's on facebook.

It's been a while since I've used a sketch (successfully .. regular readers will recall I STARTED to use a super sketch but took a wrong turn somewhere along the line!) so, I thought it high time I had another go ...

My card

And a closer view of the images

The inside of my card and the reverse of my envelope

The front and back of my card and the front of my envelope
Materials used:
  • White C6/A2, 250gsm, card and matching sized envelope
  • Two white card panels, cut to 3.75" x 5" and 4" x 5.25"
  • Black card panel cut to 4" x 5.25"
  • Snippets in white (coloured blue using alcohol marker), blue card, black card, grey card, DCWV star card and then a snippet of IKEA polka dot wrapping paper
  • On the marker coloured blue snippet I stamped the Dylusions letters/small circles images using Brilliance pearlescent lavender and Mediterranean blue inks
  • On the blue card I stamped the Dina Wakely star image using Ranger Archival watering can ink before cutting out
  • Once my card was assembled I used a white gel pen to doodle a border and diamond stickles to highlight the star
  • As it was a thank you card I used the TPS Studio sentiment on the inside, reverse and the envelope, stamped using Ranger Archival jet black ink

I'll be entering this make for the following challenges:-
  1. Fusion Card Challenge - November 3rd challenge - Fusion challenge, use the sketch or the pic or both! I used the sketch and the polka dot + letters/numbers from the pic to make a masculine THANK YOU card
  2. City Crafter - challenge No. 336 - I SEE A STAR
  3. Addicted to Stamps - challenge No. 134 - LOTS OF LAYERS  (7)
  4. AAA Cards - challenge No. 76 - MASCULINE
  5. Craft Your Passion - challenge No. 336 - ALWAYS ANYTHING GOES

Been making a lot of cards lately and thought it was time to make an ATC

Materials used:
  • ATC blank
  • Snippet of IKEA polka dot wrapping paper
  • Snippet of yellow card
  • Dylusions image stamped using Memento lilac posies ink
  • Dylusions leaves and Hampton Art sentiment stamped using Ranger Archival jet black ink
  • Leaves and border coloured using Kaisercraft neon/pastel/glitter pens 
  • My Favourite Things image stamped on to another snippet using Ranger Archival jet black ink and coloured using alcohol markers, before fussy cutting out
  • Mod Podge dimensional gloss applied over leaves, hair ornament and boots
  • Faber Castell pitt pen used to doodle a border
  • Self adhesive glitter droplet and Diamond stickles used to highlight and embellish

So anyway, there we were .. in the back yard yesterday when we heard this screech and a bird landed in a nearby tree .. proceeded to spend the next twenty minutes giving us the evil eye (whilst probably trying to work out if he could "take us" and if were likely to taste good). Obviously a hawk but, frankly, I don't know a lot about birds, particularly birds of prey. Surrogate grandson (a budding falconer) suggested it might be a red tailed hawk, we had a quick look online and wondered if it might be a juvenile red shouldered hawk (like we would know!!!) and someone else suggested a goshawk so, we're going to go with surrogate grandson's offering as he is passionate about his hobby and way more likely to know the answer, thanks "H".

This week's Friday Funny comes to you courtesy of my pal, Mary - ENJOY

Have a great weekend

Ha ha ha! I'm still laughing at the Friday Funny. It SO reminded me of our Archie :oD

Lovely to see a sketch. It's been a while hasn't it. Seems like an age since we were doing weekly sketches doesn't it.

Love your little ATC too. You're on a roll Mrs.

I'm off to work today and I see you were up at the crack of stoopid. Thanks for the beautiful bird pic. They certainly do have some amazing wildlife in Florida don't they.

This a very pretty card Kathy in that lovely powder blue and with all the stars, and also the great ATC with that cute MFT image and that bright yellow background. The Friday Funny made me smile, especially the expression on the dog's face, and I have no idea what bird of prey that is but a rare thing to have one land in your garden. Have a good weekend. x
