I Told You Exercise Was Bad For You!

One of my besties broke her hip last month – at the ripe old age of 32!

After the amazing effort of running a half-marathon, she pulled up sore – to be expected of course!

But even an R&R holiday in Bali wasn’t enough to aid in recovery and no wonder, when scans showed she’d fractured her hip!


I’m a half-hearted exerciser.  I love the concept, but rarely get around to doing it – I’d rather be crafting!

Plus, how many times do you hear of people who exercise getting hurt!

So, this seemed like the perfect opportunity to pop out my ‘exercise is bad for you’ mantra for a sassy get well card!

The little bandaged up ‘Mummy’ is from the retired Cookie Cutter Halloween stamp set.

I’m so glad I kept it!  It fits with the Cookie Cutter Builder Punch which is carrying over to the next catalogue.

I’m sure she’ll be back to running in no time!  Albeit with a more metallic composition than previously!

Cookie Cutter Halloween – All Wrapped Up! WWYS#86

Today’s post starts with a little confession…

I mostly purchased the Cookie Cutter Halloween & Tin of Tags stamp sets just to make a card like this one.  {Please tell me that other people buy sets for this reason too!}

I love a good pun, so couldn’t resist pairing ‘all wrapped up’ with the mummy stamp!!!

Funnily enough, they have become 2 of my favourites from the Holiday Catalogue!!!

And when What Will You Stamp had this set as their weekly challenge, it was time to make it happen!


Quick & easy, this card is perfect for a little birthday man…

I stamped the mummy twice – first in Smoky Slate and then again slightly off centre in Basic Gray.  This gave him a cool shadow.

Just Add Ink #332 Color Challenge


I’m in love with all things “Cookie Cutter” from the Holiday Catalogue at the moment and this includes the Halloween set.

I’m not thinking Halloween though…

The wrapped up mummy makes a great centrepiece for a get well soon card!

The middle panel is made using the post-it note technique – have you tried this?

Cut your panel to size, then using the long edge of a large post-it note, sponge ink along – moving your post it note regularly to get a striped effect.

Some of the ink will go on the post-it note, some will go on your cardstock – creating a striped pattern.

I used three of the challenge colours (Blushing Bride, Pumpkin Pie & Daffodil Delight) in a criss-cross pattern to emulate a bandage style.
