Lunar eclispe

I saw it at 4:30 my time and took a few pictures:

It's a little blurry but it's only about 3/4 covered.




Almost there...



Voila!

Leaves Card


I love how these turned out :) I stamped leaves with White Pigment Ink to create a background (stamp isn't naturally a background stamp but I made it work anyway). Then I used a coordinating stamp and mounted it on lt. green cardstock after I colored the stamped image. I put some pale cream cardstock inside to make an area to write.

Weigh - In: 128

For those of you curious about my weight loss, I'm down to 128. School started and I have a hard time resisting the school's Pizza (every Tuesday for lunch) and their Biscuits 'n' Gravy (every Wednesday morning for breakfast). I only get 20 minutes to eat so I have to cram my food in fast and I don't have time to eat my entree, fruit, veggie, and drink. Yesterday, I didn't get to eat my scalloped potatoes because there wasn't enough time. We'll have to see how well I can maintain my weight loss so I can look good for my family reunion at Thanksgiving.

More Cards

Girlfriend Cards for Swap


Flower Cards for swap
verse on front says: friendships never stop blooming


Glitter Cards for Swap
We could do anything as long as it has glitter. I chose cardstock that had glitter already. The circles are glittery and I die cut the letters "H i" and for the dot above the "I", I added a rinestone for more glitter. The cards are blank inside so there's plenty of room to write to a friend.


Kids Birthday Cards for Swap


Female Birthday Cards for swap


Generic Birthday cards for swap



Male birthday card for swap


Birthday cards
one for my brother and one for my husband.


This is for my Mom, for her birthday.

Neat Site

I haven't posted for a while because I've been busy. School starts for me this Monday so the week before is always filled with meetings. My sons have started at their schools too.

Anyway, I'm surfing today and came across these: (I'm including the entire series)

Birthday Pocket Card
















I created this card for 4 different challenges. Challenge 1: Pocket Card Challenge 2: Colors to be used are Hunter Green and Lavender. Challenge 3: Buttons and Challenge 4: following a sketch (sorry, I don't have the sketch nor do I remember where I found it).

I need a Birthday card for my student's birthday next week. I'm sure he won't understand that it's a handmade card (homemade perhaps) but I still hope he likes it.
