Better Shape Up xxx

Well girls, another week has gone by and it's time for another fab Papertake Weekly Challenge.

This week it's all about shapin' up lol xxx
The challenge is to use 3 shapes on your card or layout, and if you get really stuck, you can count your card base as one of your shapes.


So starting with a square card blank, I used one of the fabulous lil Denny Dragons from Pink Gem, coloured him with PMs, used my oval nesties, made a rectangle background with the PMs and Glamour Dust as per my earlier post. The buttons are from my stash, as are the ribbons. The sentiment is a Do Crafts stamp which I got from the sooper sale at the weekend.

Now I have to say that as I mentioned yesterday, my camera is mucking about at the mo and is not liking the green and pink for some reason cos IRL it looks a lot nicer than it does on here, so sorry peeps for the rubbish photos :((

Speaking of shaping up, today is the first day of yet another one of my diets.

I did go to Slimmers World last year and I did lose almost a stone of lardage and I noticed when I got my book out to check the 'rules' that I registered on 8th January, so it's just over a year ago since the last dietary episode. I am determined to lose the weight again and I have found that this diet is less painful than others cos there are loads of things to eat and you are never hungry.

I am kicking myself for being a greedy gannet with all things biscuity and cakey cos if I hadn't, I would not have put some of it back on, cry cry. I'm not at the stage where I look like I need a good iron when I've got me kit off, (you know, the Shar Pei puppy look lol xxx) but if I don't do something now, then it's Morphy Richards here I come lol xxx

Have a great night chickadees and enjoy the footie if like Richard and Emma you are glued to the telly (making me miss Corrie incidentally, cos they wanted to watch the build up!!).

Back tomorra with some more cardage and hopefully better quality pics cos quite frankly, these tonight are awful (hangs head in shame!!).

Hi Dawny, i don't know how i've missed your blog for so long, you are on my sidebar, i seem to have missed so much. This is such a gorgeous card i love the image and the papers are stunning. The card below is also stunning hunny. Lovely work. Hugs Linda x

Fabulous card Dawny and you had me in stitches re the morphy richards iron!! well certainl from your photo i would'nt say you needed to lose any weight. I should join you on your diet, as i have an extra few pounds that need shifting. I know what you mean, they just gradually go on and before you know it, your half a stone heavier, and its far harder to shift it. Good luck hunny im sure you will be back to your former self in no time at alL! hugs Linda x
