Went to bed about half 10 and fell fast asleep. All of a sudden 'ping' and I am wide awake at silly o'clock, red hot, sneezing and coughing. Decided to make myself a cuppa and then go back to bed. Thought I would grab this half an hour to add some words to my blog.

It was my weekly weigh in tonight and wayhay, I have lost another 2 lbs. Its coming off slowly but surely and I will be trying extra hard this week to shed another couple of lbs.

An update on Christiana and her cardmaking - she is going to her classes most Fridays and still enjoying it. Unfortunately she is still struggling to find crafting items and I have been sending her a few little parcels each week, mostly peel offs and toppers and some A5 card. Fortunately her dad was in UK this week so I sent a 3kilo box to his hotel for him to take back. Today she told me that she cant get square envelopes in Cyprus, oh if only I had known before.

Here is a card that she made her Grandfather for his birthday. Yellow and green are the colours of his football club

If you have any unwanted peel offs of any other lightweight crafty bits you dont think you will use please let me know.

This is ossy the owl. I went along to Helen's catalogue launch a few weeks ago and she made a beautiful card with the brayer, which can be seen here. I CASED her card but used chalks instead of the brayer and whilst I like what I have done, the brayered version is a lot crisper.

Thats my cuppa drunk so off to try and get a few more hours sleep.

Hope Granddad loved his card - Christiana is doing well - both cards are good as different techniques were used they aren't gong to look the same lol - I've never brayered so will have to get you to show me one day :) - best wishes Lesley x

Good morning Tracey, I hope you are feeling better now!
Christiana is doing well with her cardmaking, I hope the lack of materials doesn't put her off. Sorry I have already promised my bits and pieses to someone else but who knows, I may have other stuff in the future :o)
