I posted the wrong picture on the last post

Sorry after posting I realized the picture didn't look right and low and behold I put the wrong picture in so here is the right picture to go with the long winded post below, Thanks for your patience with me

Door Knocker

So I really like these folded tree's and I was upset I couldnt add a sentiment to the card(I used the wrong size card...go figure..lol) so I was thinking I could make something to hang from a doorknob and I did, there is a shadow or something in the corner that makes it it look like the corner folded up but it didn't I don't know why it looks like that. Any way I used cerise dp from stampin up and a flower enbellishment I got from Jaime at crazy daisy and I used purely pomegranite and an old green su cs. I stamped the sentiment with a su stamp and used Old glory gold embossing powder. I like the way it came out kind of plain but cute and it looks great on my front hall doorknob. Thanks for stopping in. I think I am really back I just have all these ideas rolling around my head. Cheryl and I are getting together on friday to make a project and I can't wait because its been so long since we stamped together. ok enough rambling until tomorrow.

weight loss Buddies wanted

Check it out if you want to lose weight with a buddy, Angel over at http://angelosity.blogspot.com/ is looking for people who want to lose weight and have a sponsor so to speak to go to. I think its a great Idea. I don't need to lose weight but I would be willing to be there for anyone who needs someone to talk them out of a crisis. Not to bring negativity into this but I lost my brother in 97 to a massive heart attack. Ricky was 43 and overweight and not in the best of shape. He smoked he drank and he didnt care what he ate. After Ricky's funeral I took a look at myself and said "Kathy that could have been you".At 200 lbs and only 5'2 I was also a walking time tomb. I told myself I would lose weight. My family and friends told me I was fine the way I was because they all knew I loved food. One thing I can say about myself is that if I commit to something I follow thru. I started my weight loss plan in april and by the end of november I had lost 70 pounds. Now if I can do it so can you. go check out Angels blog and get the info. Lets commit to be healthier bloggers. Thanks for readiing this and thanks for stopping in.

Folded tree card that I had no sentiment for

So I was visting Jan's blog @ She's gone stamping and I found this tutorial to make a folded tree and I figured I would try it. It was pretty easy to follow her tutorial. I couldn't find a sentiment small enough to put on the card though. I used purely pomegranite cs and cerise dp from su and a little bit of chocolate chip for the trunk. I used crystal effects and dazzling diamonds to make the snow. The card really needs a sentiment and maybe a bit of ribbon but I like the way the tree came out. Thanks Jan for the tutorial. Thanks everyone for stopping in and checking even though I hadn't posted for a long time. I am back!!!

Finally a Card

I finally made a card and when I was putting the sentiment on the front the wood block got inked ( I guess I will unmount all my stamps. anyway I used purely pomegranite and ww and some cerise dp. Stamps were lovely as a tree and a stamp my DIL sent me for the sentiment. I used some ribbon I found at Micheals and a brad I bought at Walmart and the Criss cross card is from scs. I loved the card until I put the sentiment on it and the block inked too. Anyway you cant tell but I use su chalks to color in the sky and ground. Maybe I can replace the Band around the Criss cross with out wrecking the card. Thanks for stopping in. I will post the card I sent to sara Paschal for her papertrey swap which I was in this month. See I have been stamping I just couldn't post those until they were received by all inviled. Thanks for stopping in.

A little unloading

For those of you who really don't know me I just really need to talk about this. 20 years ago un January my FIL was murdered. The men who did it pleaded diminished capacity because they were on drugs. We asked for a Jury trial for them but the district attorney did what is called Judge Shopping until he found a judge who would agree to the plea bargain deal. Well these 2 were sentenced to 25 to life. I just had the worst week of my life. Tom and I had to go home to a parole hearing for these 2 monsters. We had to relive the murder and we had to look at these guys once again. They used the typical Jailhouse talk but hopefully the parole board saw thru them, I really think they did but one never knows. so now we wait 6 to eight weeks to hear if these 2 monsters will be released into society to wreak havoc on another family. You know its tough when a parent dies of natural causes but you can't even belive how it feels when a parent is taken from you by another man's hands. I just need to get this off my chest and I didn't know where else to do it. Thank You for listening to me rant But I can't believe this judiscal system and if anyone is interested the case made us news and report back in 1989. You guys are the best for listening to me and I promise now I will create things.
