I've been in a weight loss group (TOPS) since last september and last night I hit the 30 pounds mark!!! I'm so proud because with my chronic fatigue it is hard for me to exercise. But i've been pretty good at watching what I eat,been cutting down on the good ol carbs and not eating after dinner and it seems to be working.
I have another 10 to 14 pounds to go to reach my goal,but the last pounds are so hard.
So COURTNEY and ALEX...any good tips for me????

Have a super day everyone,Hugs,Diane

Thank You card

Hello everyone!
I made a Thank You card,never seem to have enough of those it seems. I bought the stamp from a lady in town here,she was selling some of her older stuff. But hey,it's new to me so what the heck! I loved the flower,so why not,the price was right.I got this stamp,2 sets from SU and a bunch of loose stamps.

Anyways,it's pretty simple and easy and I kinda like it.So here's day 2,let's see if I can do this 3 days in a row,lol.

Have a wonderful tuesday!

Woohoo I made a card!

Well last night after I checked my emails,I said to myself,SELF,you must start taking time to make some cards!

So a few weeks ago,I rec'd these beautiful images from Kristine at Ink Something,if you haven't checked her blog,you should,she does beautiful work,she is awesome just the rest of YOU!!!

I kinda copied the card she sent with the images,hope it's ok with you Kristine. It was so beautiful,I just had to try to make one.The image is called Emmie-N-Twinkie.
So I coloured the image with watercolor SU crayons,cb the bottom of the card,sentiment is inked in white and is a dollar stamp and so is the ribbon. I don't remember what the paper is,sorry.
I think it turned out beautifully,thanks for the images Kristine,you're such a sweetie!

Have a wonderful day ladies,Hugs,Diane

So I'm hoping to make some cards this week. But I have lots of work to do as well,so I'll just hope that I don't do too much,cuz then I won't feel energetic enough to stamp.

Been thinking bout you!

After the card was finished,I realized she is lying in the grass.
So I guess I should of positioned the card the other way.
The bee and sentiment is from the Bee set from Sweet 'n Sassy. I colored with my SU markers and that's about all.

I've been doing lots around the building here helping out poor hubby which is still not feeling the greatest. But hey,I must say,I feel better! I'm tired but I snuck a snooze in this afternoon and now it's 9:37 and I'm just about to finish this post and I'm off to zzzzzz land (I hope)!

On wed,I'm off to visit my niece,guess what...they are calling for rain. I'm so surprised!!!! Actually we've had sunny and cloudy days for the last 3 days,so can't complain!

Well friends,have a wonderful hump day and i'll try to do the same!
Til tomorrow,Hugs,Diane

Watermelon,yum yum!!!!

Hi everyone,I've been busy,tired,taking care of hubby,went camping,blah blah blah! No time to stamp,I have to get more organized,and try to get up in the morning.Maybe I'd be more productive. If only I would sleep normally,that's another story.

Anyways,this is set I bought from a fellow blogger. It's an old SU set,but I like it alot,and I love watermelon,one of my fav fruit. Not the best pic,but I like how it turned out.

I put the image on a couple of layers,used the swiss dot folder that Deborah sent me (Thanks Deb) and added a ribbon same color as the pink in the watermelon and popped up the sentiment.

It's a card that could be used for many occasions!

I'm so anxious for tomorrow,tired or not, I'm off to my niece's place (SHANNON) ,were going to make cards all day!
So she'll have no reason not to post!! Right Shannon,lol! We haven't done this in such a long time!
It'll be a wonderful day I'm sure,looking forward to it!

Have a wonderful week all,thanks for still stopping by!!!

The happy mail is a blog I won at Stamping with Denise!!! Isn't she wonderful,look at all the SU goodies,woohoo!!!! Thanks a bunch sweetie!!

Hope you all have a wonderful wednesday!

A baby card

Well this is a new set I had rec'd from Flourishes a while back and just didn't use yet. Well I tried something,I'm not too pleased with it,I'll have to play around with it. I had seen a card on a blog with this image and fell in love with it. Do you think I can remember who's blog...nope. So if you know anyone that has this I would love to see some cards with it.

We're off to the camper,crossing my fingers all the way there for a nice weekend,lol. I'm bringing images to color and need to make cards next week.

Have a super nice weekend everyone!! Hugs,Diane

Sorry for being MIA!

Hi everyone,sorry for not posting,but with hubby still not well,I must do some of his work and bring him to the chiro and the massage therapist and on and on. But I'll survive,lol!
He was feeling better yesterday,but today is not a good day.
Guess it will take time. So now he is sleeping so I made a quick card. The image was givin' to me by my sweet friend Lorie,it was already colored so how easy it was to make this card! Thanks Lorie!
Thought it would make a nice invitation for someone special for dinner!
I'm going to try to make more cards while he's sleeping and try to get ahead. I have a few b'day cards to make so off I go!
Thanks for stopping by dear friends!!!
