Sketch Saturday #14...

This is the 1st time I have joined in this challenge,but will do so more often now!!!
I used Bazzil card,in diff shades of blue & some white.Image is Magnolia,coloured with Promarkers from www.sillymonkeycrafts.co.uk
The embossing was done with Snowflake Cuttlebug Folder,then watercoloured with pale blue over snowflakes.Snowflakes were punched with Xcut punch,diamonds from stash & the turquoise ribbon was on the tag of my new jeans,lol!!!!
Have to tell you all about my new jeans!!! You remember when I started my diet I was size 22/24,well..... my new jeans & top are a size 16!!!!!!!!! WOOHOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I have now lost 3.5 stones since January & I'm so happy,can't tell you how much better I feel,esp after my op,I'm like a new woman,heehee!!!!
Got my check up on Wednesday,it will be 7 weeks.
Off to potter about now & blog-hop,will speak soon :o)xxx

Hi Diane, I love this card. The colours are my fave so far this year. So pleased that you're feeling so good about yourself - so you should, its a major accomplishment. I bet it's not only jeans you've bought recently, it must be a whole new wardrobe. Well done and lots of love, Denise x
