Spots or Stripes…



Evening crafty friends, what are you up to tonight?

We’ve just had a Slimming World Chicken Kiev and chips for tea which was really quite nice. I enjoy cooking so adapting recipes to make them syn free is fun for me, there are hundreds on the internet too so at the moment I’m quite keen. Thinking of my shorts being tight for my holiday in 2 weeks is keeping me going. I’ve been here before though…  too little too late that’s me!!

I have a card to share for this week’s challenge at Papertake Weekly and our theme is…

Spots & Stripes

Nice and simple, all you need to do is to include them somewhere on your work

We have a lovely prize up for grabs this week from the Hobby House and as always there is some inspiration from the team



You can’t really tell from the picture but this is a big card for me, 8 x 8 square. Joe is 18 and a few of his friends are having 18th birthdays so I’ve made a few like this recently…



August 11th - Spots or Stripes


The papers are Lili of the Valley Pastel Dreams and Up, Up & Away

This cute image is Annabel Texting, I used the Here Comes Annabel Art pad but she’s also available as a stamp

It’s quite an easy card, I cut the letters and numbers on my cricut and just layered them on foam pads. The character is shaped round an embossing tool and then stuck with pinflair so she’s almost 3d


Hope you like it, thanks as always for your comments – I will try and catch up on all your blogs as soon as I can

Enjoy the rest of your Wednesday, I’m just watching Bake Off although nothing on there is very Slimming World friendly!!
