I have a Dream.............

Hi Everyone
Just a quick post today, I am day off from work today and my day seems to have turned into a marathon soup making crusade. In my pursuit of my ideal weight, I have been there and put 1/2 stone back on, I'm trying to get back in the zone before I go on holiday in a few weeks. So there is now a battle between me and that 1/2 stone. First round has gone to me as I have a wonderful pan full of homemade pea & ham soup. I'm now chasing a round 2 win as I am about to tackle a butternut squash!!! However before I do that I thought I'd just share a quick and simple card I made, again using up a background scrap. The background this time was just the leftovers on my craft mat after i'd used distress inks on something.

Main image is "Joy" - Carabelle Studio
and film strip is "Collage Texte et Negatif" also Carabelle Studio.
Only additional colouring has been a little watercolour on the ballonon. A little torn film strip washi tape and some punched out stars finish it off.

Right back to the kitchen and thanks for stopping by

  4. Stunning card! Love the tone of it hun, so real. As for the soup diet, my friend did that in the lead up to her wedding and it worked for her, she subbed lunch or dinner for soup everyday for a couple of months and did amazingly well with her loss. xx

  5. Utterly lovely card - perfect inking and stamping. The soups sound delicious - send any leftovers my way... sounds like an excellent winter slimming plan.
