Have you ever had one of those cards that work so well in your mind, but when you put them on cardstock, you end up laughing at your efforts? Tee hee...this is one of those type of cards! I was using the inspiration photo (above) from The Shabby Tea Room, and decided to try to literally be inspired, and make a window and wreath like the one in the photo. Best laid plans...good idea - not so good, pretty cheese, card!
Anyway, I'm going to enter it here:
Crazy 4 Challenges: "Buttons" (missed the challenge, but going to post anyway)
The Shabby Tea Room: "From the Garden"
Paper Playtime: "Flower Power"

I will also enter this darling frog at Craftalicious challenge: Cute Card
This next card was a birthday card for dear BIL. He turned 62 yesterday. The stamps are from Skipping Stones, and I think this set is just too cute. There are other sentiments included, so you will be seeing it here again! The fun hand is from a set by Pink Paislee, 365 Degrees, that I won in Stephanie Castro's fabulous blog candy last month! You will also be seeing more of these stamps - they are wonderful!
We also got one more row of tiles up on the wall last night - slowly but surely! Ugh...but I ate pizza. BIG honkin' slices of supreme pizza - TWO of them. Sigh.... but I've done better again today! And I'm not weighing here anymore at all - I'll do that only at W.Watchers on Thurs. nights.
The picture above is terrible, but it gives you an idea of what we are doing on the backsplashes.
That's all I have today! Hope your Tuesday is wonderful, and that you are finding lots of crafting time. I have some painting to do in the kitchen tomorrow, but will be back at some point in the day to check on all of you!
Food for thought:
Why do they call it a running back, when he is running forward???

It is a very simple, one layer card. I printed the image directly onto Kraft stock, did a little coloring with my colored pencils (sorry folks, no Copics), tied a piece of ribbon around it, and matted it onto red cardstock.
For an added touch, I have some of these little rusted stars that I adhered to the ribbon. Voila!!!
Gosh, don't you just get all warm and fuzzy when you make an easy peasy card that looks like it took all day??? lol...Paulette, you rock!
I am going to enter this here:
ABC Toys and Crafts: Red, White and Blue
Pixie Dust Challenge: Red, White and Blue
On a personal and quite serious note, I am starting on a journey, and am hoping that you will follow along with me, and encourage me along the way. Tonight, I am signing up for Weight Watchers. It's long overdue, and my DD reminded me the other night that she wants to keep me around for a while. So...after each weigh in, I will report to you. My goal is to lose 70 pounds. I would love to lose 90, but at this point in my life, it's probably not feasible. I would love it if you would help keep me motivated. If I report a loss, celebrate with me. If I gain, please encourage me to hang in there and stick with it. Most of all, pray for me to have the strength and willpower to do this. If anyone knows of a widgit I can put on my blog to keep track, please email me!!!
Okay enough blubber stuff.....
Thanks for stopping by today, and hope you like this and run over to Create with TLC and nab yourself one - it was a freebie! While you're there, check out her store - do a little shopping!!!
