I'll confess. Last year I'd lost quite a bit of weight (nearly 3 stone in actual fact!) and felt so much better for it. But, confession time, over the winter months and through a freezing cold start to this year, I'm sad to say that just over half of that has crept back on. I'd like to know who made tasty puddings, chocolate, cheese and butter on fresh bread such fattening things to eat? It's so unfair! (I sound like my teenage son!). Anyway, I've decided that I really need to get back to healthier eating and do more exercise (such a dirty word). So my personal trainer (aka daughter) now comes with me and Tilly the Dog on a brisk walk for a couple of miles and we've decided that if we do this 3 or 4 times a week then it must be good for us. Surely..... Not sure my puffing and red face is the most attractive feature, and Tilly the Dog is not impressed by not being allowed to stop and sniff every lamp-post, wall, blade of grass, etc., en route and being told to "Come on Tilly, stop dawdling!" by the Sergeant Major (aka daughter again! she's a very strict taskmaster). And we'll probably be taking my friend Sarah along with us tonight as well! Sigh. As I say, I just keep telling myself that it's doing me good.....
Right, Sunday morning waffle over with! I apologise to my new followers too - I'm afraid that particularly the Sunday morning posts tend to be a long-winded affair with a lot of mindless chat so I don't blame you if you scroll down over that! But thank you so much for taking the time to follow my little blog!
This card is one I made for a friend's birthday and I just love the Wee Stamps images - this one is Peggy
and it's definitely NOT a clean and simple design lol! I've coloured the image with promarkers and copics with a little pencil
The backing papers are from LOTV with flowers from WOC. The lace is from stash. I've added Poppystamps 'meadow leaf' die cuts and the bunting is using Whimsy stamps and dies.
And the inside to match.
Hope you like it!
