Welcome to my blog. I hope you find plenty of inspiration here. Nothing too fancy, no great skills required, just lots of cards, gifts and perhaps the odd bit of shopping.

My blog contains lots of links to freebies. Without sounding like "mother" can I ask you to leave a kind comment to the generous givers of such fabulous artwork. I know of at least a couple of artists who are feeling a bit unloved at the moment. Thanks. X

Score, fold, stick, repeat, score, fold,........

Hello everybody!  First of all thank you for all your lovely comments on wednesday, much appreciated. Secondly sorry for the lack of comments from me. One of the "excuses" is these wedding favours. I know these cartons are easy to make but as i said in the last post faffing on the computer is a challenge to me , something that is easy for most is a big mission, especially as i've chucked all programmes off except "my craft studio" to make space on my laptop.These little tags took me ages to get the right font and size for the tag stamp which is from a papermania xmas clear set.
The striped card is from The Papermill Shop. It's great because there's no need for further decoration apart from the tags and ribbon.The little clips are from Wilkinsons and i've used red, black and gold to match the wedding theme.
The chocs inside are from Thorntons,the whole room smelled of chocolate and me on a diet,lol.Luckily i've only had to make 38 of them as the day reception is just for the close families. They worked out at about £1.75 each. Instructions for the boxes are HERE.

And now for the friday weigh in. Life is strange sometimes. I went out for a big meal on wednesday and this morning i weigh 9st 1lb. Thats 2lb lighter than last friday, total loss 1st & 1lb. I'm at my target weight now but it would be stupid not to carry on reporting every friday as i'm sure this is the only thing that's kept me on track. I will allow myself the odd pound or two as long as it comes straight back off and i know you'll all be "watching me". Thanks for all your supportive comments.

P.S. Straight after publishing this post a google ad popped up for Thorntons chocs !! Marvelous things these computers.
