Friday Funny

This morning I was sitting on a bench next to a homeless man, I asked him how he ended up this way.

He said:   "Up until this last week, I still had it all !!! A cook cooked my meals, my room was cleaned, my clothes were washed, pressed, I had a roof over my head, I had TV, Internet, I went to the gym, the pool, the library, I could still go to school. . ... "

I asked him,   "What happened?  Drugs?   Alcohol?   Divorce?"

"Oh No, nothing like that" he said, "No, no ... I just got out of prison !"

 LET’S GO ROB A BANK.  Life in jail sounds OK to me.


Tee Hee!!!!  Off to join Annie with Friday Smiles.  Have a good weekend everyone!!

Oo la lah!!

Hello there

How are we all doing?  I hope you have not been washed away with all this rain we have had in the last two days.  My wellies are wearing out and I will need to ask Santa for a new pair for Christmas!

I wanted to show you a card I made for my niece recently for her birthday.  As you can tell from the photos it was a beautiful sunny morning when I took the photos before handing it to my sister for when she returned home from Geneva.....

Lots of stencilling, inking, stamping, die cutting, spritzing, flicking and embellies....

The Eiffel Tower is a new die which I bought some time ago in a sale..

I inked up a Snippet to make the sentiment here...

Aren't these embellies gorgeous?  The key is a Kaisercraft one which again was NBUS bought for me as a birthday pressie - MWAH - you know who you are....

The lower one is a TH embellie bought eons ago!

And of course I needed an envelope that would take the tower...

......courtesy of my We R Memory Keepers board.

Off to join in the fun in the Snippets Playground.  Got me souwester on and my wellies...who wants to come puddle jumping with me?

Friday Smiles

I had a smiley moment this week that I wanted to share with you instead of my Friday Funny....
I recently bought a new birdie feeder to go outside the kitchen window as the old one had broken earlier this year.  As a result we are getting visitors and this particular one kept pecking at the window.  When I grabbed the phone he did not fly away and let me take his picture. 
Off to share this with my mate Annie for Friday Smiles as this little one certainly made me smile!!

Mummy and Daddy's Diamond Anniversary

Hello my Lovelies!
My Wonderful parents celebrated their 60th Wedding Anniversary a couple of weeks ago and I had a little spark of an idea for the card I wanted to make.  When I saw my lovely Buddy's card for her friend's 25th I just knew it was the right idea.  So without further ado here is the card I made for my parents..... 

This photo is one of my favourites of their wedding.  I scanned it from the little album that were given to their parents.  I have my Grandad's album...lucky me!!
A close up of the sparkly die cuts.  Can you tell I had great fun making this card?
Side view with another photo.  The box base I cut using my Silhouette so that I could have fancy edges.
And now one showing the happy Lovebirds cutting their cake.  I am telling you, I have never used so many blingies on one card!!
Top view.  I wanted to ensure that the bits looked as good from the front as the back so I adhered another shape to the back. 
I used a few Snippets and had to raid the Christmas Snippets basket as I ran out of the silver.  Luckily I managed to find a few more bits.
Here is the card folded.
And now the other folded side.
This card took me several hours to make and all the time I was giggling as it was so much fun.  My parents loved it and my Dad, ever the engineer kept looking to see how I made it!!
I am going to sneak this into the Butterfly Challenge - K is for Knot...well the were tying the knot after all!!
I am also going to skip over to the Cuttlemania Challenge as there isn't a square in sight!!
Off to the Snippets Playground now to have a play and see if there is any choklit behind the bike shed!!  See you there!!

11 People On A Rope

Eleven people were hanging on a rope, under a helicopter in flight, 10 men and 1 woman.

The rope was not strong enough to carry them all, so they decided that one had to leave; Otherwise they were all going to fall.

They weren't able to choose that person, until the woman gave a very touching speech.

She said that she would voluntarily let go of the rope, because, as a woman, she was used to giving up everything for her husband and kids or for men in general,and was used to always making sacrifices with little in return.

As soon as she finished her speech, all the men started clapping . .. .... . . .

I am sharing this with Annie for her Friday Smiles!!

Baby's First Doctor Visit

This made me laugh out loud. I hope it will give you a smile!

A woman and a baby were in the doctor's examining room, waiting for the doctor to come in for the baby's first exam.

The doctor arrived, and examined the baby, checked his weight, and being a little concerned, asked if the baby was breast-fed or bottle-fed.

'Breast-fed, 'she replied.

'Well, strip down to your waist,' the doctor ordered.

She did. 

He pinched her nipples, pressed, kneaded, and rubbed both breasts for a while in a very professional and detailed examination. Motioning to her to get dressed, the doctor said, 'No wonder this baby is underweight. You don't have any milk. '

‘I know,' she said, 'I'm his Grandma, but I'm glad I came.’
