Another Birthday Card..

Well January is almost here..My girls are gone swimming at the Rec Center and I am home coloring and posting this card..Today is a funny day for me..I do not feel myself...not to sure why but I guess we must have some of these days to love the good days...For those of you who know me I treasure my family and my friends very much..I do not make friends easily and the ones I make I keep very close...I think that I am a fairly nice person but I do not have time for bullpoopy...So my hubby says that it is very clear when I like someone or I do not...I have tried to change and by all means I do not judge...for I have a ton of dust under my door mat...also under the couch as I see the sun reflecting off of the floor...Another day..Ok enough already and lets get on to the card..I colored a Giddy Birthday Girl..She is from Prairie Fairy Site...This is a Canadian gal her images are very cute and I love the big face..Although my face is off on this card..She is colored with Prisma Pencils blended with Gamsol...

Crafting Day!!

Today all the kiddies are at school, the laundry is almost done and the dogs have been walked.  I have been blessed to marry a fellow who does not care if I am a stay at home Mom..Yesterday he was off and all he kept saying was when are you going to go down and color..At one point he asked me if all I do is cook and clean but I guess if you are a mom, wife or better half that is what we done..I do have a job I nurse a little girl but as the years progress her condition is getting worse...I did get a card done but I still have to glue it so I will post that one another day so this is a card I colored on the weekend..The image is from Mo Manning and it is one of the Dwarfs.  At first I thought oh boy! why did I get this image so I put him away.  Then one night I said nope color that fellow up and that is what I did..  Guess what I love this card..Very simple and clean..hope you like it..thks for stopping by..
Oh and Happy Thanksgiving to all of my friends who celebrate...

Mom and Dad Almost Here!!!

I have completed another card at first I was very unhappy with it...I think the problem was Arthur's hair still not to fussy about it.  If you have any suggestions I am more than willing to listen to them.. Other than that I am ok with it..Onto another thought this is my second week in Weight Watchers and I think it is going ok, last week I had a loss of 2.4lbs which is good but now my mom and dad are going to be here,,,let's just say they do not watch what they eat at all a tad nervous...So I decided to set a new goal and that is to stay firmly on track to hit my 80lbs loss...I know what you are thinking 80 lbs wow that is like loosing a lab from my body...I will get there..My husband bless his sole tell me he married me this way I am a great person, mom and wife...I hear that but you ladies know when you have to do something for yourself it gotta get done...and you bet your ass I'm gonna get er done..Enough about my goals if any of you have certain goals and would like to share them let me know would love to hear them...Ok today's image is from no other than Stampingbella and it is Annie & Arthur..hope you all like and this one is going to go into the Spotted Chick Challenge..If you want to see some eye candy without the weight gain take a gander at her amazing cards..Well love ya and tootalou..
