Good morning sweet peeps.
Dawny P here and a happy Thursday to everybody.
I did the dreaded weigh in on Monday and I was not a happy bunny.
More of that in a sec.
It’s my turn to do the post today over at the DTDF Cutey Craft blog and my card features a very sweet lil poppet called Dawn : )
She’s Little Dawn to be exact (oooh I wish!!) and she’s a Nellie Snellen image.
Her full title is Little Dawn - Watering and here’s …..
… what I made with her.
I coloured her with the following Copics -
Skin – E000, E00, E13, R00, R02
Hair – E31, E34, E35, E50
The rest – E30, G0000, G000, G21, G94, YG00, YG03, YG95, YR02, YR04, YR20, YR61
and I outlined her with Glamour Dust.
The papers are from an Echo Park Sweet Day 6x6 Pad – such sunny colours : )
I thought I’d add a few clouds to mirror the paper here and these were made using the Joy Crafts Clouds set.
I gave them a bit of bling as well (sometimes I just can’t help myself!!).
These blooms were made from the paper pad and I used a Die-namics Rolled Daisy die.
You can just about see the Francesca Border here and there’s also some leaves which I punched from a Martha Stewart Punch - Frond Branch.
I made a little bow arrangement thingie using some 23mm White Organza Ribbon, some Peach Seam Binding, an Aqua Small Striped Button and a bit of string I found in the bottom of my haberdashery stashery!!!
The ribbons and button are from my lovely Mary over at The Ribbon Girl.
I also used some DCWV hessian paper but I have to say I am not at all fussed on it if I’m being honest.
I couldn't get it to cut very well through the die cutting machine and it didn't guillotine well either – sorry, I’m just sayin peeps!!!
Well I was not happy on Monday I can tell you.
On Sunday, Rich and I sat discussing the weight loss thing – he is on the diet as well – and he fessed to having had a Freddo bar AND a ruddy Ripple this last week. Well I told him that that was his weight loss down the Swanee fo sho. And then proceeded to feel vey smug because apart from going out last Tuesday, I have stuck religiously to the diet.
So Monday is our weigh in day.
Guess who hadn't lost a single bloody ounce and guess who had lost 2lbs?
So the tables were well and truly turned and it was his Lordship's turn to feel smug while I just felt thoroughly hacked off.
Not a single drop of vino has passed my lips in weeks, no cakes, no choccie, no biscuits, no nothing.
I could have cried.
I was probably being paid back for being a smug old smart ass.
That will teach me I guess.
Next time I will just smile sweetly and say well done dear for having all the choc and 25 portions of pudding and a huge plate of ribs with JD sauce (while I just had steak and veg) and still managing to lose weight while I have lost nowt, yadda yadda.
I’m not at all bitter, (cry cry) !!!
I haven’t told him but I had a sneaky weigh in this morning and there’s a 1lb gone – woohooooo : ))))
Right I’m off.
I’ll see you soon as soon, have a great weekend and huggiest of hugs to all xxx
