Happy Anniversary and Happy Birthday!!

The World According to Eggface.. aka.  Michelle is having an Anniversary & Birthday giveaway!   she is giving aways some awesome goodies..

I would love to try those goodies she uses to help maintain her weight loss.  As some maybe away i was banded almost 4 yrs ago and i'm almost back to my weight before surgery.. I never really let the band work for me.  I'm so mental! But this eating stuff is all mental.  I want to really try to work and lose about 40 lbs by September but i know thats insane to do.. So i'm shooting for 20lbs.  I want to start the Atkins Diet. I know of another lady who was banded she too did atkins and has lost alot and is keeping it off and does not crave the sweets and carbs she loved. 

So here is  the blog to the GIVE AWAY.

Say it with Paper Piecing & Sketch challenge

Well Annabelle stamps has a challenge with Paper piecing. I hope this counts as paper piecing.. I paper pieced the entire background paper.  It is a mixture of  Echo Park Times & Season paper and  & 7 Gypsies.  if this doesn’t count I paper pieced this balloon.. balloons & sentiment is from Annabelle Stamps  Diva Set.  its not my best card but.. hmmm it was using a sketch from Card Pattern's.  I will be posting this as a submittal for their site.   I tried to make the sketch more masculine.  I have issues with making masculine cards..   I just turned the sketch around to make it vertical and the flower embellishment I made that the balloons.

Card Pattern Challenge 169

Found a new challenge blog.  I went to my usual blog for inspiration (Annabelle Stamps) and from there I found Card Pattern’s blog and a challenge.  It has been a while since I have made a card. Right now I am in a layout kick. Which I’m loving because I am so behind in my layouts.  Well on with the show…Card Pattern 169 Sketch:My Take on the sketch:Video of the process:  I tried to keep it in real time, I was thinking I can do this card in 10-15 mins flat.. well I didn’t took me like 30-45. hahaha  and that’s with having the two middle shapes and girl cut out and colored.  haha
