A Right Old Cheeky Chops!!!!

A lovely sunny morning to all and hope everyone is OK today xxx

Over at the Simon Says Stamp Challenge it’s  all about a very pretty colour combi which is

Lemon & Lavender

The DT have all used Penny Black images today. I LOVE these images and wonder why I don't use them more often??? How strange am I – no, don't answer that one!!!!

And there is of course a whopping ..

… up for grabs to spend in the store :)

So …

… this is what I did.

I used Bee Costume and coloured the little chubby chops with these Copics -

C00, C1, C3, C5, E50, Y06, Y08, Y38.

I then did the polychromos thing to add a bit more depth here and there and a bit of Glamour Dust to add a bit of bling here and there!!!.

The papers are all from my stash :)

The old Magnolia leaf and swirl die was put to good use again – I am over-working the poor thing.  I also added a strip of Old Swedish Lace as well which is now all but hidden – doh!!!!!

I used a Nellie Snellen Daisy Clip Punch to make the daisies.

I punched out three of them, snipped a notch out of each petal and then just layered them up, added a punched dot and finally added a bit of Diamond Stickles to the edges.

Here’s another view of them :)

So that’s the cardage for today done and I am off now to do some work .  We are oh so busy at the mo and the works doesn’t seem to want to do itself sadly.

And there is another diet looming – booooo hisss.

The question is, which one do I do this time???

Weightwatchers or Slimming World????.

Ohh the decision is tough. I am doing it on line again  as I hate going to the meetings and having to pay out blah blah pounds to get weighed and patronised by an ex fattie (sorry to all the fat club leaders out there but the one at our local club is!!) . I also read about those CLA capsules as well which are supposed to help to break down lardgae and speed up metabolism. I’ll have to try them and see but I guess the only thing that really helps is not shovelling in foods that pile it on in the first place.

Yes, piggy by name and piggy by nature it would appear.

I intended to be good yesterday and I was up until about half eight last night when it all went a bit pear shaped. Which ironically is what has happened to me!!!

It’s been too many of these,  which are seriously addictive peeps  ….


….  and then a good dollop of  …..

.. . this.

It was  quite hot to be fair (ohh what a lame excuse!!) !!

And it should be more of these…..


(retch, bluh!!!)

But I’m not a  …


sadly (awwww look at that little face - how cute!!).

Mind you, while I was looking for rabbit pics I found this …


Sweet baby Jesus and the angels peeps – that is one serious big bun!!!! I wonder what lettuce that bad boy has been eating lol!!!

Best stick to the Hagen Daz Bugsy if you ask me!!!

Right I am off to get stuck into the list of stuff on my creaking desk. Enjoy your day and see you tomoz and huggiest of hugs to all xxx
