unique

Hello! Gosh, it's been forever since I blogged. I signed up to a 12 week fitness program to help me lose weight and get fit for the summer. It was pretty exhausting at first. I have been working out 6 times a week when I get home from work, and then I cook a nice {healthy} dinner  (no more ready cooked meals) and make a lunch for work the next day. It hasn't left me with a lot of {me} time, so I haven't been on the net as much, but have managed to get some crafting in here and there, with what little spare time I've had. 

Anyway, three weeks into the program, I have lost 10 pounds!! I am soooo pleased, it has all been so worth it. I am also so much more toned and trim than the slug I was before! LOL! I still have another 9 weeks to go and hope to lose another 11 pounds, to be the person I used to be. And no I haven't done it by starving to death, I've eaten three healthy meals a day, in fact I've had some of the most delicious meals I've ever eaten, from the meal plan set for me. I've also eaten out in restaurants a few times and it hasn't set me back, but I must admit I now choose much healthier {and nicer} foods than I would have done previously.

Enough of that though, just wanted to give someone else a boost if they needed it.

My card today is for this weeks challenge at Crafts 4 Eternity, where we have a purple, aqua and green colour scheme. As soon as I saw this challenge, I immediately thought of these papers from the Bo Bunny ~ Peacock Lane collection.

This card is a bit plainer than I intended it to be, but I was a bit too exhausted at the time to work out what to do with it.
The image is Magnolia ~ Tilda with a small gift. Again I've coloured here with copics and added some stickles. These colours aren't my favourite colours to colour with! I also tried to do the colouring where you colour the pleats in, so this is my first attempt. Think I need a bit more practice with that one!

I'm also going to pop this in at Simon Says Stamp Challenge, where the theme is 'anything goes'.

Thank you for looking.
