Something different…

 

 

 

Good evening crafty friends, did you have a  nice weekend?

We went into town to get a few holiday bits, all my shorts and sundresses are too tight and I’m so mad with myself – 6 weeks of dieting and I weigh exactly the same lol, I’m not the most successful slimmer in the world it has to be said!! Anyway I’m not going to lose a stone by next Sunday so I just have to get on with it and take what does fit me! I don’t suppose I’ll care once I’m laid by the pool with a cocktail and a good book lol!

I have a couple of cards to show you tonight that are a bit different for me, I’ve seen a few on pinterest and the blogs in this style and I thought I’d have a go using some of my favourite Lili of the Valley products…

 

Vintage Boys 2

This first one was for Father’s day, the papers are Winter Wishes

 

Vintage Boys 1

 

This one is for my Nephew, these papers are from Pressed In Time and the little embellishments are from My Minds Eye

 

The circular sentiments are from the Greetings Postmarks set and I used the Vintage Boys art pad which I love

What do you think? I very much appreciate all your feedback as this is something new for me, I quite like them and they were easy to make

 

Enjoy the rest of your evening, it’s lovely here so I’m going to sit in the garden and snatch the last half an hour of sunshine!

  6. Oh I like them a lot, I enjoy trying cas for a change, not easy to look good but these are fab. The postmark is a nice touch. Enjoy your hol and worry about losing weight after. Try Slimming World, fabulous plan, didn't like the classes not for me, but the plan is fantastic, normal food and not much weighing and it works, I have two friends who have lost too.

  15. Hello Anne, Loving your card, I do love these images and your colours are lovely.
    Being diabetic I have to watch my weight, I cut down on cards, lost loads,eat more protein, it does work, eating more protein makes you fuller so your not craving sweet things. Good luck with it, and have a great holiday, hugs Kate x
