Peek-a-boo & W-W Update

You've probably guessed that I am loving these Cricut frames by now!!......... I went around the edges of the holes with stickles, the little polar bear is the QK die I used in the previous penguin card, only the right way up this time.... Snowflake is Cuttlebug, paper from Anitas pad, 4 little peel off dots and button from stash.

Well, I know I haven't updated for a while, but my total weight lose so far is 1st 4lbs.... slowly but surely eh!!! I'm sure I'll undo some of the good work this weekend though, it's my 40th Birthday on Saturday!!! apart from my aches and pains, I still feel the same inside as I did when I was 21!!!!! Listen to me rambling on...... have a nice weekend all.

Very simple card, but I quite like my little penguin! what d'ya think?.....

Christmas Card

Good morning all, hope your week has started well....... I thought I would post this, although I'm not happy with it.... I attempted a Tunnel Card, I think that's what it's called!...... Although I followed all the instructions and measurements properly, it still never went together right!!!!!..... not sure what went wrong, but you get the idea, (It's being held together with paperclips!!!
I used Bazzill cardstock of course! Cuttlebug trees, Cuttlebug Swiss Dots emb. folder, Elzybells Stamps (thank you Kim!!) Hero Arts Stamps, Quickutz snowflake and Rub on.
