A Card and a Confession.

Grandson Jack came over today and I had started to make a card last night and did a little decoupage but hadn’t done much else. So Jack helped me today to finish the card off. I got out some dies and put Jack in control of the eBosser machine which he found amazing, He put the plates and dies in the front and then ran around to the back to watch them come out, isn’t technology marvellous? we then measured cut and stuck all of the components together and made a smashing card. Decoupage is from the Hunkydory decoupage book Sports and Leisure

We used Memory Box dies a trellis and a vine flourish.

Spellbinders Aster dies

and this pretty decoupage from the book.

All of the card is from Create and Craft TV here

So onto my confession…… My healthy eating went down the pan, I started having treats and cheating, secret eating in abundance. work patterns, being away from home and having to eat from service stations too many tempting foods.

So there it is in a nutshell, My name is Jak Heath and I am a secret eater.

Now that is the first step, I confessed to the world, the next step is to put it right and I have started to do that already, 2 bike rides this weekend and healthy eating, the tester will be when I have to go to Peterborough but I’m determined to get back on track.

I too am a secret eater - but have done some mindful meditation and you will be amazed at the results, try the water technique - before going to bed drink half of the glass of water and keep the other half near your bed, then keep saying to yourself - I will resist any food tempetation, then in the morning before you do anything drink the other half of the water!! and you will see in a weeks time what will happen... you will conquer it all!! Good Luck

Gorgeous card Jak, soooo beautiful. About the eating, then Iat least dont think, you should make too much fuss about it, as we all goes up and down at times, but if it gets into a whole sinn to eat something else than diet food, then it becomes a real obsession to get it, because it´s the forbidden food, but if you say whats the big deal, just get backto it , then it´s suddenly bot so bad and with that not near as exiting to get either, if you understand, what I mean?

gorgeous girly card, nice to have a willing helper . You stick to your healthy eating Jak, I'm doing the same , I do free weights great to build fat eating muscle. I thought you were having a lapse in the healthy eating the other day when you pictured the large fish and chip platters , looked yummy I must admit.
