Embellished circles

I wanted to do this technique from the Technique Junkie newsletter but had no great circle stamps until recently!  I kept pretty simple and love the way it turned out.  Hope you like it too!  Those dark lines vertically, really aren't dark but gold tape!

Because I'm almost there!

I just had to post because I'm so tickled that I'm almost at my weight loss goal!  Yeah!!  I started at 156.6 and today at only one pound away from my goal, I was 131!!  I feel lean and mean!  Now that I'm almost done, the hard part of keeping it off begins.  But, I'm pretty confident that I can do it.  The biggest reason for the loss (for me) was to eliminate my BP meds.  At this point, I've cut them in half. 

Of course, with the loss also comes a loss in money since I've had to get some clothes that fit!  HA!!  I've lost more than 3 inches in my hips, waist and chest.  Hooray! 

Okay.........back to stamping posts now !

Quiet but busy!

My blog may have been quiet lately but I HAVE been busy.  Between filming tutorials and making Design Team cards (which you can't see yet), I've been also working on some snowglobes for my upcoming card sale in November.  Here are 12 of the globes with stars in them.  I'll be making 12 with hearts in them as well.    They are uber hard to photo since the surface is reflective.  But you get the idea.  Each has a case for storage and they fold flat!!
