Getting Into Shape

I have decided that my healthy lifestyle starts now!  Not only have I been power walking (as started for the Race for Life) I have decided that I need to take a serious look at my diet, as a Boost for a mid morning snack at 326 calories not good.  So watch this space - I am going to get into shape and loose the 3 stone I put on with baby number 3!!

Talking of getting into shape (tenious I know) this months challenge over at Funky Hand is to create a shaped card and not the standard square or rectangle.  It has taken me a while to decide what I was going to do as all my favourite ideas were so brilliantly done by the design team.  So eventually I decided on this cute little bunny:

The template is from Colour My World and has been sitting in my craft cupboard since I bought them (probably 2 years ago) after a class at the Paper Mill.  What better than to decorate this cute little character for this challenge.  All the papers are taken from Now That's Funky.  Pretty simple to construct, however very time consuming to cut out all the pieces, ink round the edges, put on faux stitching and then assemble.... easy really....

To finish off the card I made some paper flowers by cutting swirls into patterned paper and twisting them.  Voila some pretty flowers

One of my son's freinds is turning 7 soon so I think this would make a lovely birthday card (don't worry it is a girl!)  Anyway it's late so I better get off to bed before its time to get up again.  TTFN Vx


  1. V, I loooove what you've done with the bunny - so cute! Those paper flowers are gorge too. and I would agree about the Boost bar - they are evil and addictive (believe me, I know!)
