Weight Loss

I am so excited, tonight was BABES night, check out my weight loss ticker at the very bottom of my blog.  WOW,  in just 4 weeks I have lost 9, count them 9 pounds!!! I am in awe of the many ways God can move in your life, if you will just be open and ask him for help!!! If you have never heard of this awesome program, check out it out here.

Look what I did!

Look what I learned to do today! I finally learned how to add a signature to my blog posts!!! What fun and frustration this has been! I found these instructions here.  She has a pretty cool website, let me know what you think of my new signature, does it look like it is made of ribbons?

Backyard Surprise!

This is the card that Mom & I made the other day.  I used the ghost and tree from my Paper Doll dressup cartridge with my expression.  For the ghost's faces I used Peachy Keen Stamp set PK-570 Basic Paper Doll Face Assortment. The leaves are some I found in a package at HL.  It was a lot of fun, making these little guys!

I can't believe I am this far behind!!!






These are pictures of the light centerpiece and the place settings that I made for the Women's Tea that we held at our church. Heather M drew the heart with scroll corners for me, she has a lot of free SVG files on her blog.

I have been trying my best to get some crafting done, but with my Mom & Dad visiting, taking a Beth Moore Bible Study, joining the BABES weight loss program, a diabetic cat and a root canal, I seem to be getting farther and further behind.....The Beth Moore Bible Study is To Live is Christ, which is the study of the apostle Paul, and I cannot believe how much I am loving it. I am not much of a history buff but I am finding fascinating. If you get a chance to take this one, I highly recommend it.

Mom and I made a couple of cards for Halloween and I will try to get them posted soon.

And Bear Makes Three











There is a small store located in Moore, Oklahoma that I love. I have been in love with this store for about 10 or 11 years now. It's called "and bear makes 3", it is an awesome store, with rubber stamp, scrapbooking supplies, classes and Boyd's Bears. They have a website, but it really doesn't do justice to the wonderful place it is. I can browse there for hours (and sometimes I do) I took a Thursday night class and created these wonderful be cards. I purchased the stamps and all my supplies at the store (they give you a 10% discount on the supplies if you are taking a class). I was having the best time, I colored my cards with my prismacolor pencils (I love my prismacolors). I tried the tombow markers that everyone else was using, but I really don't like markers. Unfortunately that meant that everyone else was done waaaay before I was! I've said it many times...I am a slow poke, I love the coloring part and was getting really into it, when the teacher said "since we are all done with the coloring, let's start putting our cards together!" I thought "Whoa, I'm still coloring card number 1!" It all worked out OK, I did have to bring some unfinished cards to finish at home, but I think it was worth it. I will be taking a couple more classes there in September and I can't wait!!! I hope you like these cards. If you want more information on the store, just let me know. Maybe I can figure out how to add a link.
