Tutti Fruity xxx

No, not me!!
It's the new fab Raspberry Ribbons kit and it is one of my faves I have to say.

I so 'heart' checked ribbon.

There are some crackers in this month's kit - really fresh colours that are perfect for this time of year - check it out peeps cos it is yummy xxx

I used one of the new Leanne Ellis stamps from Funky Kits, coloured with..... yes, you know what, and highlighted with a bit of the beautiful bling that is Glamour Dust!!! The papers are PP and a Nancy Kubo design (So Sweet) from Prima Hybrid. I've had this set for ages so I don't know if it is still available, but it is rather gorge :))

If I keep up with the diet, maybe I'll be a skinny as
she is (in my dreams lol xx)!!

I thought I'd do something a bit different here, so .......


..... here's a sneaky peeky of tomorrow's card :))

As Rolph would say, can you tell what it is yet? Show ya the rest tommorra if I survive the next workout sesh.

I have to say that I survived the first one. Did the shock waves of me bounding 'gracefully' round the living room reach you? Did you feel the force? Kath, did yer paint brush slip love?

Anyway, I thought I'd start off with the Camilla dance one. So I drew the curtains, front and back, cos God forbid the postie would come up the path and see this - it could give him post traumatic stress and I could be sued. And in the absence of a trackie, I wore my pj bottoms and a t shirt, trying to look like Sporty Spice (sadly it was probably more like old spice!!) and off we went.

Have you ever done one of these home workout things? Is it me or does everyone feel like the biggest numpty on the planet? I kept looking over my shoulder to see if anyone was looking, and I knew I had lost the plot completely when I sent the cat out of the room ( she was looking at me in a very strange way - if I didn't know better, I'd think she was smirking!!)

but ....

after 5 minutes or so, I sort of went out of numpty mode and I actually enjoyed it. It must have looked hysterical cos I was all over the place, but afterwards, I felt holier than thou all day :)) So I am up for another go tomorrow.

I'm off for a herbal tea and to watch the Aussie Open. See you manana with some more cardy offerings xxxx
