A Martha Stewart Border Punch Free Zone xxx

Yes, tis true - shock horror.
But I couldn't quite do without me PMs
However, 1 out of 2 isn't bad I suppose!!

I have been a bit naughty this week.

Kath, you know when I told you that I was on a no-more-stash-for-a-month drive?

Well, I lied lol xxx

Not on porpoise natch, but I saw some Penny Black stamps and they just seem to be saying, nay yelling 'buy me, buy me, buy me now' lol xx

So I did.

And this is one of them and I just think it is sooooo sweet. I love poppies, especially when they are growing wild in fields.

And just in the nick of time, I have done this for this weeks Penny Black Saturday Challenge and this week the PBSC girls are asking us to get dotty. Well no need to ask me twice cos a) I am a bit dotty - you probably noticed!! and b) I just love dotty spotty fab things. So this is my almost too late, but better late than never, offering!! The papers are PP of course, the sentiment is an Anita' stamp and the gorgeous red spotty scrummylicious ribbon is from Poppicrafts.

About turn lol xxx

I thought I'd tart up the edges a bit and make it a bit more windswept and interesting, as Billy Connolly would say!!

Now I noticed the other day that I have passed the 30k hittage mark, and it is also my bloggiversary this month - the pink pig sty is just over a year old. I can't remember the exact date - doh - but it is January for deffo. Sooo I reckon I better get some blog candy sorted in the next few days.

But no birthday cake cos we are still on the diets :(((
Well when I say 'still' it's only been since Monday lol xx but so far so good. I know you are not meant to weigh yourselves more than once a week. Or that is what the fat club leader told me when I went last year, but we cannot help oursleves, cos we're a pair of fat saddos!!. Tricky Dicky has lost 5lb so far and I have lost 2lb. That just isn't fair is it, but if that's the way the cookie crumbles (weight watchers of course), then I will just have to live with it, or do better next week!!

Must try harder Dawny!!

So that's me done for tonight. But before I go, I just wanted to share this with you. Not sure if you've seen it or not, but it is the new T Mobile ad and it is just completely brilliant. It's on YouTube and if I've done the link right, you can see it here, but if not, go to You Tube and do a search on it.

See ya tomorra peps xxxxx

gorgeous card Dawn aww I love your new stamp and the layout you've used. I'm sure you don't need to diet hunny, you look fine to me. hugs Jill xx

Michelle said...

What a cute card. Are you feeling ok without using your MSBP, you must be all lost,lol... Loving the tarted up edges of the pics. T-mobile ad, I know it is just so cool isnt it. I saw it on the news the other day and it makes it even better knowing that the passers by had no idea at all it was going to happen, could you imagine walking through the station when that happens in front of you - how mad would that be????
Hope you are well,
Hugs to you and yours,

Dawn said...
