Sad news...

I learned from Rita that one of our beloved stamping friend has passed away yesterday.
She was Deb Golan from Stamping on the mountain. I met Deb through bloggin,she was intrigued with a quote I had on my home page...Don't bring your organs to heaven,Heaven knows we need them here. We started chatting and we're both in need of a liver. Except Deb had so many other health issues.
She always told me not to give up and to hug my liver,Deb in your honor,I will do just that.
May you rest in peace,I will miss so much!!!!

I finally made a card!

I can't believe I finally made a card,it's been so long! Just haven't been in the mood or no mojo like you guys say it.
Things haven't changed,haven't heard anything from the transplant team...it gets very frustrating,disappointing,discouraging,so many emotions going on.
But I keep my Faith in God,and know HE will make it happen when the time is right.

I hope to visit some of your blogs over the weekend. As for the card,her name is Emmy from Cuddly Bubbly,I used one of nesties,added some primas & added part of a dollar stamp from Michael's.

Hope you all have a fantastic weekend!

My weight loss pics!

Wow,I haven't posted in a long time. These pics are my before and after since I lost my weight to goal. A total of 37 pounds since Sept. 07.

So I'm pretty proud of myself. The before pic was taken in one of the casinos in Las Vegas and by after pic was taken at home on sunday,so it's really at the weight I am now.

I have made a couple of cards to give to my fellow Tops friends but silly me forgot to take some pics.

We have had beautiful weather in the last few days,so I am taking advantage of walking and riding in my Mustang,top down of course,lol! Just had to rub that in!

So I'm still kickin' around waiting for my call. We decided to no longer go to our camper so we don't miss the call if and when it happens. Continue the prayers please so I can get this transplant asap.

Thanks and Hugs to all of you my dear friends!!!

Short post

Hi folks,sorry for not posting regularly. It's been a tough couple of weeks lately.

I didn't know where I was going with this card,not the greatest,but at least I made one to show.

The sat phone we got lent to us for the camp didn't work. So I guess we won't be camping much this summer. It'll be hard on DH,cause he really enjoys going out there.But without a phone for the hospital to be able to reach me,I can't take the chance of missing the call. I've been waiting too long! It was 2 years on June 4th that I was put on the transplant list. I just can't believe how fast it went but yet soooo slow!

I guess it'll come one day,I must have Hope & Faith!

Have a great Monday everyone!!

Wish I looked like Bella!

This is the card I gave to this week's best loser at TOPS.
She really liked it. Which btw I lost .4,I've been staying at my goal for 4 weeks now...let me tell you it ain't easy!!!
One of these days I will put a before and after pic of my weight journey.
I can't remember what this Bella is called,I got her through Wish Rak and just adore this image! Of course I used my nesties,some bling and diff stamps for the background!
Tomorrow is always wednesday,laundry day,and I MUST clean my stamp room! I'm looking at it right now,and how embarassing!!! Thank goodness no one else sees it,lol!
Have an awesome day,hug someone!

Altered booklet and a Beautiful Rak!

Look at this beautiful Vintage Album I won!
If you love vintage and haven't checked out BREE'S blog,you should head on over there! She does amazing work! Thanks again Bree,I will use it one day for something very special in my life.
Then I altered this TOPS Tracker for a peep at our weight loss group. She was my secret pal last year so I had given her one of these altered with butterfly stamps. Last tuesday she asked me if I could make her another one,which I was more than happy to do for her. I used Angel Anya,and colored her hair like her own,she has streaks like this,so she should get a good laugh out of that,but I'm sure she'll like.
I know I've been a bad blogger,just not in the swing of things. We went camping over the weekend even though we didn't have a phone out there. I told my DH,the heck with it all,let's get out here,he needed a break from the building and I got alot of zzzzs. The weather was terrible but that's ok,we got to relax.
So we got a sat phone for the rest of the summer in case the transplant team calls (hopefully it won't take all summer,but who knows). My sister in law borrowed one from her work at no cost!
How wonderful is that!!! Cause those are expensive to rent,nice to have helpful people !!!
So I hope to create this week,but who knows. I got a bit of house work done today,now I want to try and visit a few blogs,I'm so behind it's not funny. I know you all understand though,so I'll try and pop by and visit!
