Mmmmmm.....never been good with excercise or diets. Hate that I've piled on the pounds tho.

Walking the dogs, standing up all day at work rather than sitting, and dancing has helped to shed a few lumps and bumps.

Forgot I have one of those 'sit up' rocker thingys, you know, it's supposed to make sit ups easier!!! We found it when we cleared the shed out, cold and shivering, unused, and unloved, covered in spiders webs aaaahhhhh. I'm making friends with it now, in the hope of being a nifty fifty. Wish me luck. xx

Truly Scrumptious Challenge 41

Hello everyone, and welcome to my blog.

If you've been here before, thanks for coming to see me again, and if this is your first time, have a good look around, I hope you enjoy what you see.

Now on to this weeks challenge with Truly Scrumptious.  We have another great sketch, with the option of using blue and green.  So that means another card from me very much in the same style as the previous one. 

Another great image from Kenny K.  I'm just loving these images.  They're so versatile and very different to any others out there.  I coloured the image using my Copic markers, and I used stamps from Stampin' Up!, Magnolia and The Stamp Man.

The glitter is from Stampin' Up! and the flowers from Prima.  I added a couple of flower gem centres, and a diamante gem on the necklace.  

Why not pop over to Truly Scrumptious to see what the rest of the design team have done.   Then perhaps you'd like to join in with us, you could win our fantastic prize.

Take care, and thanks for visiting me today.

Sketch Saturday week 119

Hi everyone

Well it's my day off today, so I thought I'd have a little 'me time' and spend a couple of hours crafting.  It's so long since I've really joined in with any challenges so I thought I'd go on a little search for one to keep me busy today. 

So I decided to join in with the Sketch Saturday one.  It's a fabulous sketch, and as it's my daughters 17th birthday this Wednesday I thought I'd better make a card for her.

So here it is:

I've used one of the images from Kenny K.  This one's called Mad Skillz and I love it.  I think it's perfect for teenagers, and since my daughter Sophie loves to sing, then I'm sure she'll love it too.  I downloaded and coloured it in last night, and went a little off course with the eye shadow...oops.

I love these Tiny Tags stamps from Stampin' Up! too, along with the punch, they're great bunched together like this.  I saw this idea on  Sarah's Card Oasis blog .  Thanks for this fabulous idea Sarah.


I made the flower with layers punched from the retro flower punch, then I inked and glittered the edges of the petals. It is quite bulky, so I'm going to make a box to put the card into.

Please leave a comment if you wish and thanks for taking the time to visit me today.  Happy crafting.

Truly Scrumptious Challenge 40

Hi everyone

It's another happy Wednesday and time for another challenge from Truly Scrumptious.  Along with our sketch you have the opportunity to include a know somewhere in your design.

I've gone with a pink and green theme today and made a card possibly for someone who has done well with a driving test.

I'm loving this l'il Beetle.  What an iconic car.  I'm also loving lime green at the moment.  My laptop is lime green, and I'd love a lime green car, so as I can't afford one I thought I'd make this card instead. 
Here you can see the windscreen and headlights are glossed over with Glossy Accents.   The colouring is done with Copic markers and the large flowers are from Prima, with small roses from in the centre.

Why not have a look at what the rest of the design team have created for the challenge, and if you have a go yourself you could win a fabulous prize.

Thanks for taking the time to visit me today, and happy crafting.
