Any Occasion card

I used some of the Anna Griffin ribbon from my ss on this page. The focal image is a piece of embossed pp. The center of the flower has a filigree bead cap and a brad. I used the Stampin' Up Mat with a piercer to make the holes around the mat, and the strip of purple paper. I began with an "Old Olive" card base with "Pumpkin Pie" and "Whisper White" mats.


I made this card for the Mojo Monday card at I started with an "Old Olive" cs base, and the pp is American Craft, the diagonal strip is brown on the back, the dotted is pink on the back. The cake is a $1 studio G stamp, and the flowers are a small Stampin' Up stamp. I used punches for the scallop circles and the two large circles, and coluzzle for the small circles. I used the Stampin'up mat pack for the corner holes.

Saturday, January 3rd

I had another laid-back, not get much done day. I shelled and shelled and shelled pecans while watching TV. I still have a bag of them to be shelled. I don't know if I'm going to get any more or not. There is the issue of storing them...and when am I going to find time once I go back to work to shell them? Aleah came over to see the newspaper article and to give me some more little spoons for my embossing powders. I think I need to tell her I have enough now, but I can share them with some friends who emboss, so I'll let her keep saving them for me. I can't wait to get back to my work-out routine next week.


My goals for 2009 are:
  1. Be debt free (except for my mortgage) at the end of each month.
  2. Buy dd and ds a laptop when they go on sale for less than $300.
  3. Put down hardwood floors in ds' room.
  4. Lose another 50 pounds.
  5. Complete 52 layouts.
  6. Complete 104 cards.
  7. Mail out B-day cards on time.
  8. Go to 6 scrapbook events
  9. Pay for dd to go to FL during the summer
  10. Pay for ds to go to scout camp during the summer

I did it!

The times free press did an article about people who have lost weight...and they included me! I'd lost the most weight of anyone in the article at 105 pounds lost. I still have lots to go, but it's really cool!
