I know - I am sorry

Better late though than never I say........sorry been a way for a while - work again is getting in the way......though going to make a concerted effort for me time....so much so started a gym...and totally love it...not weights and power lifting - but I go to the classes...they motivate you and make you do just that little bit more...and yup - it's working - so just got to stick with it now.......

Made some cards and tags to show you

 Just added some blossom to the tree to make it a bit more girlie

 And then needed some tags so my scrap card once again came in handy
 and added some punched out butterfly's to this one
So sorry if you thought I had left.....Naaaaaaahhhhhh......just need to get round as many of you all now that I can
Happy Bank Holiday Monday to you in the UK
Entering over at Sassy Cheryls - show me Thurs - sorry been away for so long

21st Birthday Cake


Hi there - hope you have had a fantastic weekend......

Did ball stability class again - and you will be pleased to know - I did not fall off........I also have done a "fat burn" class - blimey now that was tough - we had weights and it got to one point I did not have the strength to push the bar up over my head to put it down and nearly called for help......Don't be fooled though by all this gym sessions...problem is I am eating 10 times as much so it is doing no good what so ever in relation to weight loss - need to try harder...but loving it - so that's the main thing...

Made this cake for a ladies daughter at work....did wonder when she asked for red/while and black flowers on it - but love the finished look.

Hope you like it too
 
Back to work tomorrow - think weather is on the change for snow next week...will have to see
 
Entering this in Sassy Cheryls - show me Thursday #136 - which I won last week - fab eh!

Mo Manning birthday pc card

Oh Thursday - nearly Friday....working from home tomorrow so don't need to get dressed up - nice and then tomorrow night off to stability ball class again - why do I put myself through it - if I fall off again I am NEVER going again.....
Onto todays card...love this image - coloured many many times.....mad this for my nephews 18th - he loved it.


Coloured in with Copics added some gloss here and there and got in the glitter on the 18th...easiest way to seal in sprinkled glitter is to glossy accent the item first - in this case a pre cut out wooden 18th - then sprinkle with glitter - seals it beautifully and the glitter stays put!
 
 
Enjoy your weekend - raining here in the UK....

Car birthday cake


Afternoon....

First post of 2014 - so Happy New Year....

Had a break for Xmas - nice as always lots to do.....

Had Bex home for Xmas - though just taken her back to Uni - though she is coming home every 3 weeks so that's nice - though can my fridge hold up to it and my biscuits???...

Made this cake for a friend at work she wanted a car cake for her husbands birthday - first car cake - its ok - but so out of my comfort zone....


Just sponge inside - she assured me it tasted nice - always a worry as you never know.

 
Emily was 17 on New Years Eve...time flys - so doing this post while she has gone out for her first drive.....in my car!......mission to get her passed this year...but soooo expensive - even the provisional licence these days is £50...then lessons...then the theory test...and then the test.....bank of Mum and Dad is very thin on the ground at the moment...
 
Had a lovely Xmas - even joined a gym...went to a stability ball class!!...you know one of these balls that you sit on and apparently work your "core"...well fell off the damn thing - may I add in spectacular style...bruised one elbow and bled on the other...really hurt...did I cry?...inside...but not on the outside..anyway - my mates now want me to do a class on Tues and Friday this week....doing it on the mat this time!!!!
 
Hugs to all
