Bandwagon Jumper

I've been admiring those cute puffy flowers peeps are making with scalloped circle punches. So yesterday I made some. Then some more: I mean they rock.
This card is my favorite card I've made in a while. I love the orange on rustic cream. I love this greeting stamp and I love the polkadot. And I have a well documented love of atlas paper. (torn from an atlas I got at a yard sale)

This one is sweet too. :)

This is an Ethan designed card. I stamped the dots, he has trouble with clear stamps. He stamped the dragons (they are an adorable retired SU set that we are borrowing from my friend Thea). He picked the "clear green" button and the twine. And the green color scheme, he loves green.

In Other News
  • My good friend Kelly and I talked about my working out. She thinks I'm doing it all wrong! Like the program I'm doing is not going to help me loose weight. Or not much weight. I literally cried. I mean I cried for hours. I feel like I've finally found something that works for me, that I enjoy and can handle. But if it's not going to give me the results I want then I have to get a new program. I even worried myself to sleep, causing me to have nightmares all night. (Where sweet Kelly killed my mom and Brian made me carry my mom's body around on the rest of our vacation with us so we didn't miss any events he had planned, EWWWW) I do meet with a personal trainer tomorrow, so it should get sorted out then. But what she was saying made sense. So she's probably right. *sigh*
  • Last night was the last crop at my LSS that's closing. :( It was fun but sad.

1. Super cute flowers, EK! I just mailed my first card today that had one of those on it...hope it still looks cute when it arrives.

2. I think you've convinced me that I must have that signature greetings set.

3. That's discouraging about your workout regimine, but on the plus side, at least you found out about it now instead of weeks down the road. This is just a minor glitch-you'll get it figured out. I'm proud of you for sticking with working out period!

4. Hope you're having a blessed day!
