Challenge Card

Hi Friends! Today is Thursday - which means yesterday was weigh in day at Weight Watchers. I made Lifetime Goal two weeks ago and weighed in last week with a loss of 1-lb 4-oz and this week I weighed in with an almost 2-1/2 lb loss. I've given myself some wiggle room so with my upcoming vacation back to Wisconsin I will be able to enjoy a few bites of some of the YUMMY YUMMY things that I left behind (and can't get out here in Arizona). Having this 4-pound wiggle room will allow me to indulge and NOT HAVE the Guilt Monster riding me BIG TIME. So........let's take a look at the card I'll be sharing with you today. This is my May SaddleBrooke Stampers Challenge card....... Our challenge card was to make a card using fabric and our favorite flowers. This was going to be a snap for me because I just picked up some fabric bundles at Scrapbook Etc and I also had a recent flower die out for a previous project I was working on.....so.....here's what I came up with! I had some yummy ruffled ribbon in my stash (from Hobby Lobby) that I ran across the center of my card.....add layed three flowers made with the prettiest pink fabric ....... and made up a sweet little Thinking of You greeting and I was pretty much done! Here's a close-up of the fun fun fabric flowers. I joined them together with a pretty white brad and attached them down to a squared piece of cardstock. Here's another pic of my finished card......totally girly and totally me! I'll be saying good-bye to my BFF tomorrow afternoon....she'll be leaving the Tucson area to fly back to Colorado for the summer - so can only image how sad it will be here in SaddleBrooke with her gone. We have plans to chat on the phone at least once a week and thank goodness we both have high speed internet and that will keep us connected. (missing you already Jan) I have some cards and projects to share with you this upcoming weekend......Hopefully you'll be able to return and check out what I have planned. Keep Living Your Dream.
