So Far, So Good!!

Well, I got to stamp again today! Only for a little while, but I’ll take it where I can get it! I made a super quick and easy card, for today’s technique lover’s challenge, which can be found here. The challenge was to use only browns and vanillas, and the card could not be chocolate or coffee themed. I so wanted to use Roses In Winter, and do the technique that Jeanne put up on her blog (Inky Paws) today, but those silly roses just would not cooperate. So I moved on to the old standby, Lovely As A Tree. I am challenging myself to use stamp sets that I have not used in a while, so this one fit the bill. I also made use of my Cuttlebug, and some brown primas. The ribbon came from jacksonbelle’s store (big shock, right?!?) and so did the primas, I think. All of the paper is SU – Chocolate Chip, Creamy Caramel, and Very Vanilla. I used Creamy Caramel and Close to Cocoa ink on the tree.






I got a beautiful arrangement of tulips hand delivered to me at work today by sweet hubby and wonderful baby girl. Wasn’t that nice?? They brought me some last week, too. And we went out to dinner tonight (we left the sweetie with her great grandparents, though) at a new Italian place in town. Not bad!!

Today was weigh-in day for my weight watchers plan. I lost another 1.5 pounds, bringing my total to 21 pounds. Yippeee!!! What a fantastic feeling this is – I love it so much!
