Feeling Blue?

Good afternoon to you all, I seem to running round in circles these days not a lot of cards being produced but I am busy making plaques.  After the "Slimmer of he Month" plaques were presented some girls asked about making some to record their weekly loss so that is what I have been working on this past week.  Pictures will be posted soon.

I did make a card using Grand Labels Four die I just bought and love the style of them.  The card is a gorgeous shade of blue.

Spellbinders Aster flower die and Grand Labels Four

Pearls from stash
Peel off from stash

I have not added a sentiment yet will do that when I decide what to use it for.  I have made a start on my first Christmas card by cutting out some Christmas dies and pulling all elements together but it does feel funny making cards this early (early for me but needs must as I was caught out last year).  I know some of you ladies and gents are way ahead of me and have shown some beautiful Christmas cards.
I hope you are all in the "pink" as I am feeling not too bad these days.  No aches but still trying to loose some more weight, it is a struggle especially when you like the wrong foods for a healthy lifestyle but tonight is weigh in and I don't expect to see any loss as I have not been good.  I enjoy my wee night out with the girls, we chat, laugh and put the world to right.
Take care out there.

  4. Hi Wilma,
    superb card. I love that shape die, and the aster die. Fab design too.
    Now it's funny that is almost the colour of the card I have posted.
    Have you looked at the puppies on Hazel's blog they are soooooo cute.
    Best of luck with your weigh in tonight.
    Have a wonderful crafty evening.
    Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

  6. Gorgeous card Wilma, loving the colour. Oh I know how you feel about trying to lose weight, but a little at time coming off I think is better as it won't go back on as quick, girls at my group lose 3lbs one week then go out at the weekend and put it back on the next weigh in. Stick with it girl, you will feel better for it.

  7. Hi Wilma
    What a striking card. That blue is so vivid (must have a trot to Hobbycraft when the next 25% off vouchers are available) and I am more convinced than ever that I need the aster dies. Will have a look at GBCF at Stoneleigh Park on Saturday.
    I have decided that I am not overweight, I'm just underheight hahaha!!!
    Good luck at weigh in.

  9. Love this one, love the flowers. Glad plaques went down well. xxx

  10. Hi Wilma, I love your card, just my colour combo and great use of dies and embossing. As for weighing in....some you win some you's normally when I think I've been good I put on and when I've been naughty I loose. Bizarre.
    I hope you enjoyed your night out.
    Hugs Erika.
