Card Patterns 25: Flower Girl.

My granddaughter Grace is to be a Flower girl at a wedding next week,so thought she might like this card.
She will be the perfect little flower girl.

My daughter Nicola is also being a bridesmaid, her friend Paula is finally getting married.

I have known Paula for about 20 yrs now, her and Nicola met at college.

Brian and I are also been invited, so hope to be able take lots of photos.I love weddings.

I thought the sketch at Card Patterns was perfect for this Card, I bought the wooden dress and wedding stickers from Hobby Craft and they were reduced to just 29p so I bought a about 5 different ones, I also bought the papers which were in a pack by CraftyBitz called Boudoir.

My weight lose

I know I don't talk much about myself, but I'm so pleased today.

I have been going to weight watchers on a Saturday morning now for over a year, and I've been struggling for a few weeks now, since I started, the weight lose has been slow, which I know is the best way to do it, but more than 1/2lb a week would be nice, anyway I was so fed up I was thinking of giving up, not a good thought, but when you reach a plateau, it feels like 2 steps forward and 1 step back. well after today I feel so much better, I lost 1.1/2lbs, which makes my weight lose exactly 2 stone, but still at least a stone to go, but feel that I have turned a corner today.

Have a good weekend and hopefully will be back later with a card to show you.

All Sorts- My First Christmas Card

I bought the Creativity Mag and Christmas goody bag at the weekend, and thought that I would make my first Christmas card, I have seen a lot of Christmas card already on other blogs and know that a lots of you have already made a start.
The sketch on All Sorts challenge blog suited some of the items in the goody bag. I don't often use mirri card except at Xmas but it does make such a nice effect.

Just magnolia. loves me..loves me not

Isn't this a cute image, I love it, it reminds me of my little granddaughter Grace, picking daisies and singing I Love Him..I Love Him Not..I know the words are wrong but I think she got them about right, I prefer this version.

I made this for the Just Magnolia sketch and used papers by K & Co.
