Hey...

{hanging head} I never managed to post yesterday...the first Tuesday (from memory which isn't always reliable) since starting TLT 18 months ago I've missed. I know we've gone fortnightly but I still want to post on a Tuesday. I had the afternoon from hell yesterday...EXTREMELY frustrating. To make myself feel better I broke the MOB (mother of the bride) diet and had a tiny piece of chocolate. It wasn't my mostest favourite chocolate so didn't have the desired effect which made the break worse {sigh}

Oh well, today is another day and apart from getting my hair caught in the car door which was slammed shut by the wind (potential decapitation!) it hasn't been too bad :-D The best part of today has been my Wii finally being set up so I can get started on my MOB body beautiful lol. These things always fascinate me...that fact that someone is clever enough to think of these things then make them work is just mind boggling. I'll let you know how I get on :-D

I'm just on quickly (honest) to show you the card I made for my cyber friend who lost her MIL recently. This is my most favouritest SU! stamp set and perfect for a sympathy card. I think it's the hardest card to make (next to men's) but when you have a set like this, it makes it more bearable. The pictures aren't great but here it is...




I printed this Penny Black sentiment on my computer then stamp the wishes


A lot of wedding stuff has been going on...a lot of boxes being ticked but I said this was a quick post so I'll update you next time :-D

Thanks for stopping by

Catch ya later x

Wonderful card for a sad occasion. I'm sure your friend will take comfort from it.
As for your diet, I shouldn't worry about a piece of chocolate. I have read somewhere that it's ok to sin once in a while as long as you pick up where you left off afterwards.

Don't beat yourself up Kerry, blogging should be all about fun first and foremost. That is a lovely card for a very sad occasion. I hope you have a better rest of the week and as for chocolate, in my books it's a daily delight (just a little bit ;0). Luckily I don't put weight on as I bought my MOB outfit last year and it will not be worn til July! Everything in moderation in my book!
