BIRDS Saturday, Jun 2 2007 

I decided to make the “Where are the Birds?” post something I will continue to update as I find birds on the web. So you’ll see to the right that I have made it a Page. If you know of any more bird items available….stickers, stamps, die-cuts, chipboard, whatever….let me know and I can add it to the page!

A Challenge Thursday, May 31 2007 

I took a break from wedding cards to play with Stamping Princesses- Beate, Jenn, Sharon, and  Lori.   Lori sent us all a few stamped images by Anna Wight for Whipper Snapper Designs. They are the most darling birdies and as you know I love those birds! (A few posts back I told you where to find some of those feathered friends!) This was a fun little challenge using the birds and a few pieces of “Pocketful of Posies” background paper from DCWV. The paper is so pretty and glittery too!
I chose to use just a scalloped oval of the paper back behind my image which was stamped on Shimmery White (Lori’s Favorite)  and sponged on the edges with Lav Lace. I watercolored the bird and filled in the wings with my Clear Gelly Roll Stardust Pen which I finally ordered online from Scrapbook Creations. I hand drew the little lines on the scallop and punched tiny holes in the edges to give it a lacey look. This scallop is popped up onto a strip of shimmery white which has been cuttlebugged with the Swirl folder. A background of SU Bashful Blue stamped with Rhonna Farrer Swirls v.1 (TARGET- $9.99!!) and Snap Stamps “hey, tweetie” (DD’s suggestion for the greeting!) is then  mounted onto Black. At that point it was missing something so I pulled out my shoebox of lace and found this fine lace strip which is as old as the hills and tied a knot of it at each end of the strip. I mounted that onto Lavendar Lace and I was finally pleased with the result. What do you think?

They have Arrived! Wednesday, May 30 2007 

The waiting game is over and the twins are here!!!!!!!!!!!!! Well, they are there…in VA! I’ll be leaving on Saturday to go see them.
Brandon weighs 7 pounds 5 ounces and Faith weighs 5 pounds 9 ounces…I think. The cord was wrapped around Faith five times! That was something they did not expect so it was a good thing that a C-Section was planned.
Mommy and babies are doing very well. I can’t wait to see them!
God Bless~

Blog Challenge Tuesday, May 29 2007 

Did you know I also have a weight loss blog? That blog is to journal my weight loss journey. This journey has been a serious venture for me for for over 6 years. Six years ago I weighed 217 pounds. From there I lost and gained and lost and gained…you get the picture. But I ended up losing 77 of those pounds. Here I am, however, starting to put them back on and I refuse to go there so I am exercising and TRYING to eat right. By my son’s wedding, I want to be back below 140.
Back to my blog……. I offer a weekly challenge and a prize to a random winner. Last week I had one girl take my challenge. She won a handmade weight loss journal. 
If you’re trying to lose weight, I welcome you to check out my blog-
And take my challenge! What have YOU got to lose???

Waiting… Tuesday, May 29 2007 

I’m playing the waiting game. I am waiting to hear that my new godson and goddaughter have arrived safe and sound and how BIG they are. I know they have to be big. They were 5.5 and 6.5 pounds almost 3 weeks ago. But they were content to stay inside their mama until the scheduled delivery day…today!!!!
Saturday my DD and I get on a plane to go see the little ones. I can’t wait.
Say a prayer for Peg as she is delivering right now!
