A Bit Different xxx

I've posted the pics in a different order.

And these are not my usual colours, although I love this colour combi. But I thought I'd ink up my new Penny Black stamp which I bought from Port Sunlight a few weeks back. It was in the bargain section and I just fell in love with it. Well actually Jan spotted it first and there were 2 so we had one each :)

So Penny Black Saturday Challenge, here we come lol xxx
This week it's a recipe challenge and it is 3 flowers, 2 papers and 1 brad/ charm.

So ...

Here's 2 of the flowers, and there is a Kars blingy diamond in the middle

The 2 papers are both PP

And the 1 brad / charm is American Crafts (brad) and Craft Bitz (charm).

I hope I am ok using both girls, and sorry if I got this wrong!!!
Oh and here is the other flower!!!

The glare from my lamp at night is awful and it makes the papers look really shiny, which they aren't cos I dont like glossy papers really. I used the old PMs and Glamour Dust duo - went a bit OTT with the sparkle as you can see .....

... on this pic. IRL it doesn't look that bad though.


Well I am sporting 2 of the biggest blisters you have seen - one on each heel so I am nothing if not matching. Actually, they arent that big, but they sure as hell are sore.


I had been a bit down yesterday and lack of fresh air doesn't help, so Richard and I went for a walk tonight after dinner - we are so lucky to have some lovely countryside round here. Stupidly, as we weren't going far, I thought I'd wear a new-ish pair of trainers that have not yet seen the light of the gym.


We do a bit of a circuit which is only 3 miles or so, and about half way round, I felt the shoes chomping into my ruddy heels. Well what could I do? I had to keep on going cos R was not offering any piggy backs (can't for the life of me think why lol xx) By the time we got home, it wasn't nice. I never walk in anything other than stuff which my feet are used to, so I don't know what possesed me!!! But be sure, it is a mistake I will never make again.


The diet is back on (again, yawn yawn) so at least the blisters will stop me wandering into the kitchen looking for snackage - well for tonight at any rate lol xxx


Have a great evening and me and my blisters will be back soon, hopefully :)

Hugs xxx
