Whats the Story?

Okay let me start by saying that my diet is getting sooooo much easier. I am so relieved. As of this morning on my scale I have lost 6.5 pounds this week. I am so excited. I know that the first week is usually the most weight lost but my goal is to lose a good 2 lbs a week so this is a good start. And I have to say that the exercise is crucial. I dont think I would have lost as much without it. And I actually enjoy the exercise. I turn on the Learning Channel and watch my favorite show "What not to Wear". Hysterical. I am waiting for these people to come knocking at my door because my wardrobe has been a bit off since I put on my weight!! So all is good in this area!! Thanks for all of your kind words and support.

Now onto my card. I used a new stamp that I have not inked up from MFT called Whats the story. Isnt little flopsey cute cute cute!!! I stamped him on PTI card stock with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored him with my copics. My dsp was from scraps so I dont know whose it is. My cardstock is So Saffron, Pumpkin Pie and Rose Red. I cuttlebugged the middle panel with my paisley folder and cut the borders with my MS punches. These little white flowers I bought at Michaels a LONG time ago and just used them for the first time. And I paper pierced the perimeter of both the image and sentiment with my paper piercer. I happen to love the way it came out. So fun and cheerful. Hope you like it also. Have a great Saturday!!! The weather here is gorgeous. I hope it is by you too.
