Season's Greetings in PINK!

For this card,I used my CB tree on silver paper and added some pewter liquid pearls on the dots.
Heat embossed the sentiment in silver and added a pink ribbon at the top.
Pretty simple but I kinda like it.

These are for a local Christmas swap I am in,so I hope the recipients will enjoy them!

Here is the inside of the card,Heat embossed in silver and my MS punch once again.

I can't believe that October is already done with!!!
Next thing we know,Christmas will be all over with,you just watch and see!!!!

Have a good day everyone and hope you all have a wonderful weekend!!!!

A simple card with a punch!

Hey my dear friends,
haven't posted in a couple of days. Same old thing,hard time with my sleeping,anyways I won't bore you with that today.
I made this card using one of Martha Stewart punches,one of my favs.

And I heat embossed in gold the sentiment in the front of the card and inside of the card as well.

I love the gold Heat Embossing powder for Xmas,it looks so Christmasy!!!

This weeend I want to work on making Xmas tags to donate to a penny sale that our Tops group is having in mid november. I thought of using my scraps and it'll be fun!

I lost another pound this week which puts me 6.8 pounds to my goal!!!! It sure is hard to get those last pounds off,anybody have good tips ????

Have a wonderful day and hope to post again soon! Hugs,Diane

Holiday Lineup

*~*~*~*~HOLIDAY LINEUP~*~*~*~* Aren't they cute,I can't wait to play with the rest of the set.
Not exactly what I expected,the green I used for the CB should of been true thyme,but I was trying to use up some scraps.So I inked up the CB folder with gr thyme and edged the image with it also as well as the sentiment.

And guess what....I SLEPT LIKE A BABY LAST NIGHT!!!!!!

I took 2 sleeping pills,went to bed at 10:30 and slept til 11:00 the next morning!!!!! I haven't done that in ages! Boy did that feel good!!!

So I hope I won't pay for this tonight,but I must think POSITIVE!!!! Hope you had time to create,I'll try to make a nicer card with this image the next time I play.

Happy weekend! Hugs,Diane

Vive la Neige-Let it snow!

Yet another snowman card! I rec'd these tiny images from Wish Rak and this is what I came up with. The pic is awful,
the pattern paper at the bottom is really nice,it's got shimmering snowflakes which you can't see.
I'm not going to be applying for any photography job anytime soon let me tell ya! I'm the worst photographer yet!

Well,I got to go to a walk in clinic last night,and the Dr. gave me antibiotics for 5 days. Got a sample to make sure it's nothing more serious and says it should be gone within the 5 days. After only 2 pills,it's already better,so Thank goodness for that.

Now if I could only fix the sleeping problem I'd be in Heaven...oh that's not a good saying is it? If I slept 3 hours last night,that would be about right!!!! It's getting terrible!

You guys must be sick of my boring postings,lol! Always bad health issues,sorry! Not much exciting happening in my life.
Especially now that camping is over! But one good thing is my hubby and I have been walking everyday now for the last 10 days,we take 1 day off a week. It'll only help me for my weight and for when I have my surgery,and hey,fresh air is good!!!

I do have some good news,we're going to JAMAICA in January,for our 3rd time. So life isn't that bad after all,what am I complaining about right!!!!

Enough babbling,it's almost 9pm,I'm taking 2 sleeping pills as am typing,well I did have to stop typing to take the pills,lol. And hope and pray that I will get a few hours in a row of good sleep!

Have a wonderful wacky weekend my friends,Hugs,Diane

Some beautiful RAKS! And an infection...Yuck!

I rec'd 2 beautiful Raks yesterday! The first one is from Julie at Out to Impress,she sent me a very beautiful note inside that got me all teared up! You're soooo sweet girl,love ya!! Isn't it beautiful,she's so talented!!! When I grow up,I want to be just like her,talented,gorgeous,!

And the second card is from my wonderful Liver buddy Deb. Deb and I are going through alot of the same problems and met through the Grace of God through blogging! She is so talented as well. Seh sent me a really sweet card and lots of beautiful images! You're the best Deb!

So yesterday I was so exhausted,I took a sleeping pill at 7PM. I must of fell asleep around 8 I think. Which was wonderful,woke up a few times but fell asleep again. But at 2:23,I woke up from a big peepee urge,so I rush to the I have a blatter infection!!!!
I'm going to have to make an appt. with the dr. which will probably take forever to get in there. So does anyone have any suggestions of what I can for this or do I really need to see the doc for meds?
If it's not one thing it's another!!!!!

So hope your day is a good one!!!!

My flaky friend!

Hello everyone,sorry for not posting any sooner.I've just been having a hard time with the sleeping issue,which won't be resolved anytime soon. I guess until I get the new liver,nothing is working much,but that's ok.

It took me all afternoon to make this card. Can you belive that,it is so plain,not much to it,but my brain was not functioning to well,lol.

I love snowmen,especially big images like this one.I enjoy coloring them,they make my heart melt.

So if you don't see any posts here,it's cause I'm probably sleeping or blog surfing when I get to it.

Have a great week everyone and Thanks so much for still coming by and also for all your kind comments and wishes!!!! Mouahhhhhh xoxoxo to all of you!!

The chick is in the mail!

Isn't he cute!!! I finally made a card,it took me all afternoon,just wasn't in the groove of things.
He's from Cuddly Bubbly,Kristine,you got me hooked on those images you know,lol!

It was my first time using the puff snow stuff,I think I put a little too much,but he's still cute.
I used my MS for the snowflakes and the border is also a MS punch. Then the 2 pink bg are embossed with the CB swirl and I added some bling on the flakes.

I've really been in a blahhhhh mood,so pretty quiet at this end. I'm still going for my walks though,hoping that it will make me sleep better,but nope not helping in that category.
Anyway,I hope to make more cards tonight and tomorrow maybe. I'll surf and CASE maybe that'll get me going. I have no imagination.

Hope you are all having a super weekend!!

No card today

Sorry guys I don't have a card today. I'm working on a few cards but having a hard time,just hate that,urghhhhh!!!

But on a brighter side,I went to my weight loss group last night...and I lost 3 POUNDS !!!!
I was so happy,but I worked hard at it ,really watched my intake,exercised and my downfall is eating at night which I didn't do and oh, bread I try to stay away from it as much as I can.

So doing all that I got good results!!! Now I have 7.8 pounds to go to reach my goal. This week I will work super hard just to try and keep those 3 pounds off,cause I'm not one to have a big loss like that. I'm afraid it'll come back on.

So I hope to have time and creativity to come up with a card for tomorrow!

My first WOJ card!

Well I got 2 WOJ stamps the other day and finally had the chance to color Melinda Reading her Book.

I don't like the shape of the card but I didn't want to start over. I started with the oval pattern in mind,I should of went with the square card anyways.But hey I tried it,don't like it,live and learn right! Then I had problems with the ribbon,than I goofed up when I colored her pants,so I fixed that with piecing them,so that was ok.
The only thing I do like is the primas,couldn't mess those up,
lol,but with me you never know!

My next one will be better,I promise,practise makes perfect so they say.

Have a Super Sunny Sunday everyone!

You like my new stamp????
I love it,I rec'd 4 from Cuddly Bubbly which you 'll be seeing in the near future (I hope).
I first saw the Cuddly Bubbly stamps on Kristine's blog and just fell in love with this line.

She's suppose to be sitting on something,so just pretend it's on snow. I should of put puffy snow,maybe next one.

I like how it turned out.Hope you do too!

I'm on a roll with Xmas cards!!!

Yet another Christmas card!

Another card which we made at that SU workshop. I actually liked how this one turned out. I just love that scallop punch,I almost bought it,but got some cs and ribbon instead.
Gotta love that little snowman,I stamped him on the front of the envie!
I LOVE snowmen!!!!

Tuesday was a beautiful day,so I cleaned the inside of our truck,it was so overdue for a good clean up. Then I did laundry,a bit of housework and now it's 4:40 AM and I've been up for an hour and just can't sleep!!!! Arghhhhhh I hate that!!! I had been doing really well with my sleeping in the last 5 days. Guess it was too good to last,lol,oh well! That's what chronic fatigue is all about.

Hope you all have a wonderful Wednesday!!

Santa & his reindeers!

Here is something else we made at our SU workshop. It's such a cute set! I've made so many mistakes on this card,my sentiment isn't centered,and 2 of them I've put the red cs too high. I was trying to hurry up,cause I felt pressured. There was one project per table,Shannon and I went from one table to the next.Like everyone else that was there did. Cause you always go to those things with a friend.

So I felt like I had to hurry up so I didn't make them wait. I won't do that again. After we we're all done our projects,it was so early,we could of stayed a couple more hours. So next time,I'm taking my fine time!!!!

Three more xmas cards done,woohoo!

Have a wonderful week everyone! Hugs,Diane

So I got these little Elzybell fairy images and decided to make a card to wish you all A Fairy Nice Day!!!! Isn't she cute?

Baby Card & Do you watch the Biggest Loser?

First,here is a card I made for a baby shower I attended last saturday. It was my sister's niece (on her husband's side),I don't know the mom to be,but do know her Mother really well.
Anyways baby showers are so emotional aren't they! She had sooooo many nice gifts,now a days,they get everything and more !!!! That kid has clothes to be changed a few times a day for a few months without doing laundry.
It was great,she was happy and we had fun!

Now for the biggest loser...I watch it religiously every season! Having had a weight all my life,I know how hard they struggle,mind you they have it made on that ranch. But they work sooo hard,don't know how far I would of made it on there.
Yesterday,the father and daughter team fell below the yellow line,and for those of you who watch it,know that the father left the ranch. I'm such a cry baby,I bet I was the only one that cried,I was so proud of him when they showed where he was at today!!!! Way to go Dad!

Well,until tomorrow my friends and have a wonderful hump day like they say!
