Recycling, and pie…

 

 

Hello all, what you up to on this Sunday morning?

My Brother is away for the weekend and rang last night to say “come on over for the day, there’s a great pub nearby that specialises in homemade pies and they’re amazing”. Instantly I’m thinking omg no, I’ve already had a bad week and I’ve got to get weighed tomorrow I can’t eat pie! Keith’s saying we can’t not go because I don’t want to have pie. He can’t understand why I can’t just not have any… not have any! can you imagine when they’re all sat tucking in, it’s just never going to happen is it. So we’re going, and despite good intentions this morning there’s no doubt I’ll be having pie later, and then just because I’ve had pie that of course means it’s a cheat day, so I’ll have a few drinks and some sweeties on the way home…

…and that’s why I’ll never be thin

…and I’ll regret it tomorrow when I have to confess my sins at Slimming World!

Time for another ‘Use Any Image’ challenge at the Ribbon Girl and as always there are 3 lovely prizes up for grabs;

 

 

A bit of an unusual card for me this time, I bought a lovely Santoro heart embossing folder (which you can see I used) and these cute images were printed on the packaging…

 

Ribbon Girl October

 

Aren’t they sweet, I couldn’t bear to waste them so also made a little matching tag and the red dotty paper was also from the packaging (is that taking frugal to a whole new level?)

The border die is Magnolia DooHickey and I used some gorgeousness from the Ribbon Girl; cheesecloth, white seam binding, tulle, red button twine, 5mm red crystals, apple charm, dragonfly charm

You can see all the details for the challenge on the Ribbon Girl blog and of course lots of inspiration from the team

That’s it from me, enjoy the rest of your weekend crafters

  2. It's one of the things I love about the santoro range... They always try to make it so you can use as much of the packaging as possible. Must dig mine out some time soon, as I haven't had a play in ages!

    Love your card. It's gorgeous, and such a great design. The little tag is adorable too. Have a fab weekend Anne! x

  5. A pie more or a pie less.... LOL :D Isn't a joy eat it? Enjoy your pie and don't worry for your weight. Life is too short for looking also at the balance! ;)
    I always recycle items, it saves money and brings a lot of creative ideas. You have done very well to not waste your packaging, these image are just fabulous and so cute! Great both your works, so elegant, cute, feminine and creative! The embossed background and the ribbon with charms are just perfect for them!

  12. Gorgeous card and tag Anne! Wonderful use of the packaging, it would really have been a waste to throw it away. They're both such lovely designs.
    Have the pie! You can be extra good another day, not that I've ever thought you looked at all like you needed to lose weight when I've seen you at LOTV when you worked there :). Debra x
