Very Green Card

My friend at work adores green and it really suits her so when it came to her birthday card there was really only one colour that would do. As soon as I saw this image from Tiddlyinks I knew it was going to be perfect. She makes the most amazing cakes really outstanding and I even gave up my diet for a day recently when she brought in her homemade brownies. I hope she likes it. If you get a chance popon over to Tiddlyinks where there is a 36 hour sale,I adore her images and my first ever blog post was one of her designs.

A New ME

As Mr. Mojo seems to have gone on a sudden and unexpected break I thought I would let you all know what I have been upto instead. I have been on my first diet for about twenty years and this is time I have stuck with it even when it got tough. I haven't blogged as I have been loosing weight as although the scales told me I was getting smaller my eyes didn't lol. In fact after loosing 37 pounds ( 2 stone 9 pounds) I can finally see a difference, this doesn't mean the journey is over in fact I still have a long way to go but I am feeling more positive that I will make it now. It feels wonderful to fit into sizes I thought were a dim and distant memory and the positive comments from my co-workers has helped considerably. I don't know about anyone else but I kept on wearing my original clothes that were too big and I decided to see what size I was after someone said I was wearing clown trousers that just needed the braces lol. It did feel weird visiting a store and having to pick up a range of sizes just to see which one fitted especially when the "would love to fit" was the right one.

Tried something new - well almost

I bought quite a few items in the elzybells closing down sale, in fact I placed several orders. I am very sad to see this store close as the quality of the images is excellent. Amongst the orders was the retail therapy large stamp and the small dinkies set and every now and then I get a good idea and this seemed to be one of them, I used the large stamp on my card and the smaller one on the envelope. I paper pieced both and I think it makes an unusual set.
