Enjoy Life!

Hey Everyone!! I made this card using this weeks sketch over at SCS. SC226. My image today is from The Cats Pajamas. Now I just love this image because that one little birdie is just stepping out with her flowers and bows and having herself just a grand ol' time. Atleast this is how I interpret it today!! So what a better sentiment than "Enjoy Life" which I purchased from Stamping Bella. My cardstock is Bordering Blue and So Saffron. My image was stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black onto PTI Cardstock. Then the little bluish birds were watercolored with Bordering Blue and I colored the rest with my copics. My dp today is Bella....okay I forget whether it is Bella Birds or Bella Bleu. One of those Bella papers from SU. My ribbon is So Saffron and my baubles are also from Stamping Bella.

Now onto some good news. I am still exercising 45 minutes a day and my diet is going very well. I do not have the strong cravings for food like I did in the beginning. Along with my 6lbs lost last week, I have lost ABOUT 2 more lbs so far this week. My official weigh in is on Mondays at Jenny Craig but I cant resist getting on my scale to check my progress!!

Thanks so much for stopping by to say Hi!! Hope you are having a fantastic day!!

Now this is simply stunning Ann and those little birdies are so cute. Love your beautiful bow and wonderful detail. Mefinks I will use this sketch too.
Congratulations keeping up the exercise and dropping those pounds, WTG girl.

Fantastic card and even more fantastic weight loss news! I am jealous! Nah! I don't exercise. I have no equipment at my home and the weather has been too lousy to walk. I hate exercising so I stay "pleasantly plump". But, I am very healthy!

Good show. I'm very proud of you!
