Thoughtful Congrats

I am happy to say I got Colin and Evan off to school and I sat down and stamped! I started with the Sketch Challenge from SCS.  The main focal image on the sketch was an oval and I now realize I need more Oval dies.  I have the Scallop Oval for the Big Shot so I changed the card into a 5 1/4″ square so that it would fit on the card.  I cut the main image layer out of Whisper White with the Big Shot Scallop Oval Die.  I then stamped Congratulations from Well Wishes in the center of the oval.  I then inked up the floral image from Thoughts & Prayers in Old Olive, Crushed Curry and Rose Red.  I stamped the main image twice and then sponged the edges of the oval with Soft Suede ink.  I added 2 vintage brads to the top and 2 to the bottom.  I then layered Thoroughly Modern designer series paper (a 4 7/8″ square) onto a 5″ square of Soft Suede Textured card stock.  I cut a piece of 1 3/4 X 4 7/8″ piece of Rose Red card stock and then used the Eyelet border punch on the bottom edge.  I tied on a Crushed Curry Polka Dot Bow, added my Latte button with Linen thread and then attached it all to a 5 1/4 X 10 1/2″ Kraft card stock base that was scored at 5 1/4″ to make a 5 1/4″ square card. 

I wanted to let you know that I’m having some computer issues.  The desktop where I do all of my photo editing is giving me issues.  The CPU usage is running in the 70 – 90% range for some reason.  It took me longer to get my photos downloaded and edited than it took to make the card.  I hope to have this resolved soon.  Otherwise I’m going to upgrade my photo editing software and install it on my laptop.  My old edition expired so I never got to re-install it on my laptop without purchasing a new copy.  I wanted to let you know this in case I post that it may take a day or so to get back up and running to where I can edit projects to post. 

Today is also weigh in day!  This week I lost a total of 3.6 lbs to bring my total to 6.4 lbs total.  I think that’s pretty good for 2 weeks!  I’m only 4 lbs away from my 1st goal of losing 5% of my starting weight.  In another 2 weeks I may just be there and then I’ll have to readjust my goals. 

Well it’s time to head back and pick up Evan.  I hope you have a fun and creative day.
