Cute Card Thursday #58

Oh, I SO love Bank Holiday weekends and this one has been no exception. As you know, I had the house to myself yesterday and so spent the day crafting and singing along (badly) to CD's that I haven't listened to in years. Isn't it amazing how you always remember the words once the music starts?! Thats always amazed me....! I also got the chance to play with a few new toys that I have 'acquired' over the last couple of days. Probably the main new toy is my shiny new Wii Fit board! I've wanted one for ages and luckily had £23 of Amazon vouchers which knocked the price down to £45. Bargain. As I'm not the best at getting motivated for exercise (ahem), I thought this might help. Well, I'm now on day 3 and it's going well! I ache all over but have managed 1.5 hours each day - check me out!

I've also purchased a few new crafty bits this week too, namely PAPERS and LOTS of them. I think I need to face up to the fact that I am totally addicted to pretty papers! I bought some new Daisy Bucket papers last weekend and also managed to pick up a few faves from my wish list yesterday from Sweet Shoppe Designs at 30% off! Zoe Pearn, you are a legend - I salute you!

Right, enough waffle. Onto some cardage! I made this card and then realised that as it was a little bit shiny, it was eligible for this weeks CCT challenge - Mirror Mirror!

I am LOVING this image! I received it yesterday in an enormous parcel from my wonderful friend Hege. Hege won my Blog Candy a month or so ago. She said she wanted to send me something to say thank you so I sent her my address. I was expecting a card but wasn't prepared for the veritable heap of stuff that landed on my doormat! There was this beautiful card, a huge pile of stamped images, some ribbon, fab papers, big flowers, buttons, Stickles.... yep, the list goes on! I was totally spoilt! Thank you so much Hege, you are a sweetheart! ~♥~

Goodie List........
Stamps: 'Reflective' by Sugar Nellie, Sentiment from freebie Papermania set.
Digital Paper: 'Positively' by Sara Amarie - Sweet Shoppe Designs.
Ink & Colour: Memento (Tuxedo Black & Rich Cocoa), Copic Markers & white gel pen.

Enjoy the sunshine!
