Here's my card for our challenge this month - naturally this was another lovely one for me because I had to use punches or dies and I have the odd one or two. Oh before my blog pal makes a comment (Sue J!), the butterfly is the only one I've used before!
I'll be perfectly honest now - I'm not at all happy with my colouring - I'd completed everything except the hair and the background and then it went soooo wrong. I started off with blonde (ish) hair but couldn't get it right so it ended up dark! I thought I would pop some dotty things around the image and then carried on with the dots all over the circle! Just like when I was 3 or 4 and at ballet, I couldn't manage this little dance step but suddenly the penny dropped and once I'd got it I couldn't stop!!! I must have felt somewhat daft 'cos I told me mum that it made me legs ache and I didn't want to do it any more! Never even had a tutu or ballet shoes - just me plimsolls and me vest and knickers!!!!!!!!! Back to the image (no not of me in me vest and knickers), I think I will colour this again (sometime) and replace the one on the card.

Must be off now 'cos it's almost dinnertime and we have a curry - yum yum. Oh and an update, as of last week I have lost 33.5 lbs (so that was another 2.5lbs). Not sure what it will be after that ice cream though lol!!!! 4lbs to go and I'll be in the next stone down! Woo hoo!
Have a great rest of the weekend and take care in this heat. Did you catch the thunderstorms yesterday - wow it woke me at around 3.30 am so I was watching the lightning - although most of it was above the clouds but the thunder was rumbling on and on and on! I felt sorry for all the little furry and not so furry animals out in it, I just hope they had some shelter.
Big hugs to you all
Love Sue xxx
