The Dieter's Nightmare

.. a whole month of dieting and nothing to show for it! I think this would make a great encouragement card for a friend who was dieting and really struggling with it.


The image, sentiment and tape measure stamps are all from a Studio G mini set. I really wanted to use tiny buttons as embellishments - after all, buttons feel the strain when a diet isn't going well, but I had none in the right size and colour so I used a fine tipped permanent marker to add some faux buttonholes to pieces of Candi.

I am sharing this with

This is so fun and just typical about the buttons, but the faux ones are fab x

Love it! This is so much me at the moment. I think I'm the only person who can gain 2 lbs on a diet, Jo x

This is an adorable card and I totally relate to the sentiment! What a clever idea to add faux buttonholes (I had no idea they were fake buttons!). Thanks for playing along with CASology!

Haha I think this is very funny - especially with a sentiment like that, next to a stick person....it's cute and really made me smile. Chantell Just Add Ink
