Woo Hoo I did it

Well I am over the moon today, I have been on a diet almost 6 months now, the reason was of course I was overweight but I had high cholesterol ( not sure I spelt that correctly) well I have been doing the diet on my own with the nurse at my doctors weighing me every 3 weeks, I have not cheated once and today when I saw her I have lost my target weight plus 2lb more and my total weight loss is 58lb and I have lowered my Cholesterol to and will not need pills, so I was just so happy :-) plus to keep me motivated my daughter and i are doing the walk the walk next May in London, all 26 miles of it I hope, so we will have a 12 week training programme to follow next year. Well just had to advertise this loss to someone and here it is, thanks for reading love from a very happy me xxx

Santa in the pink

This made you look me saying Santa in the pink, now what were you all expecting ??????
For this tag which I have made for this weeks Sunday Stampers, I have covered both sides in pink dabbers and the top picture I tried and failed to do what Dan does when he re-stamps an image over the top of your already stamped image ( now that makes no sense) I painted Santas beard in with white acrylic paint, used a script background stamp and the word believe, the little tag is from Tims new range. the bottom picture is using a new weinter tree stamp and I have put stickles on that and some background script again and wording in brown, hope you like this tag and sorry about the rubbish explanation of its making, thanks for loking xx

Christmas Tag

This is showing the fronts of tags I have made for a swap I am in and also the snowman is what is on the back of the tags, so its decorated both sides. The Father Christmas side has been coloured in and I have used this white raised stuff ( no idea of its name) and glitter for a bit of an extra effect, shame its not showing up as it looks quite good, even if I say so myself, then I have masked and inked and stamped the background and used some ideaology tags covered in a white dabber for the word ( copying Tim) the stamps used are all by the master himself.
The back of the tags, thats the snowman is coloured in with blue and black dabber and stickles for the gold, I copied Lindas idea of the hat being coloured in, hope she does not mind, she is very talented and I loved what she had done. then I inked the background and the snowflakes stamped in blue and whit dabber, hope you like the tag, I really enjoyed getting messy, thanks for looking xxx
