Down 17 lbs and wanted to share an updated photo of me ...

I am down 2 sizes (and my 12's are starting to get baggy now and down 17 lbs.) Here's a pic Charlie took me of yesterday. Can you tell? Yes it was actually near 70 degrees which is why I have flip flops on.

Don't think of yourself as old ...

I got this latest digital image from Whimsie Doodles and had to make a card. Its not too mean is it? (I am not saying who this is for!)

Haven't posted in a couple of weeks ...

The cold I had seemed to linger for 3 weeks. I still have a cough but its not too bad now. I'm still doing WW and I'm down 16 lbs so I am REAL HAPPY with that. I am back in a size 12 and I hope I keep going down down down. Now that the weather is warming up, I've started walking for an hour at a time and that equals 3 miles (I think).

Yesterday I went over to Ellie's house and Patty was here visiting from Connecticut so we spent a few hours stamping. I had these cards all stamped but not colored so that's what i worked on. I like to have extra birthday cards on hand and my stash is getting low. These are some cards I did for summer birthdays.
Cupcake girl is by Penny Black.
Watermelon girl is by Stampendous.
Bikini girl is by Stampendous.
Used glaze on the cupcake frosting and the star glasses on the girls.

There's a funny story behind this hedgehog ATC ...

These hedeghogs are made by The Angel Company. Back in October, when a bunch of us got together in Indiana, Chelsea had this idea for a hedgehog ATC swap. Not just any hedgehogs. They had to be this set!!! She tells the story pretty good about these funny hedgehogs on her blog Chelsea's Creative Corner. If you look closely at the stamp set, you will see the one hedgehog is holding a flower ... well look where the stem and leaf are ... no one noticed that little "boo boo" before the stamp set was released? HA HA HA HA Anyway, I decided to hold a hedgehog ATC swap that is due on Valentines Day and this is the one I made. Funny huh?

So I have been on a "non-spending" stamping budget lately.

I haven't been to the stamp store in over a month. I haven't been to Hobby Lobby, Michaels or ACMoore either. I finally decided I had to get out of the house and see what was new at Stampers Alley in Mooresville. I only bought 2 new bottles of Stickles (in new colors!) and 1 memory box stamp with a cloud and a fence on it. This is what i came up with. This is an old Stampin Up set and I used an Amuse sentiment with it. Love these new pink and green stickles!!!

Sick, Sick ... cough, cough!!!

I don't know where I got this horrible cold from but I want it to go away now. I've had it over a week and my chest hurts so bad from coughing!! I was finally better yesterday to get out of the bed longer than an hour. I'm taking Mucinex and I think that's making me better but then I have another night where I'm up all night coughing and I think "Should I go to the dr.?"

One good thing with this diet, I have no appetite. I'm down 14 lbs and very happy with that. My shirts are looking HUGE and I may need some new ones. Woo hoo!!!!

I made a few cute Valentine cards that I will mail off this week to friends so I will post them soon.
