It's Happy Hump Day & we're halfway thru the week & almost to the holiday weekend! Can you believe that I didn't know Memorial Day was this weekend, LOL! Is it possible to be so crazed & busy that you don't know the holiday is here--giggle. I really need a calendar taped to my dang forehead or somethin'--woweeee! Well yesterday was "weigh in" day for me and I am proud to say that I lost 3.5 lbs in 7 days---YAY!!! Only 19 lbs more to go, hee hee! I did the FIRM workout with 5 lb kettleball last nite & it totally kicked my bum--tuckered me out but I'm sure I worked off a ton of calories!! And I've been able to get over my "cherry coke addiction"--I only had one this weekend since my motto is 6 workouts=1 cherry coke, lol! Works for me!!
**NEWSBITZ--I have 3 new Copic Video Tutorials on my sidebar if you're interested (Videos 10, 11 & 12)! Included in each are some tips/tricks for using & stretching the capabilities of your Copics!! Tomorrow I will have a Colorless Blender video up to show you how many cool things it can do!! ***So today I wanted to share a fun & cheery card I made using some new stamps that sweet Diana sent to me from Magnolia-licious. This lil' cute "Tilda with Bee" and Alota Rubber Stamps "Potting Shed" go hand in hand--I knew they would work fabulous together! My images are colored w/ Copics and I cut and popped Tilda up on top of the shed's stoop. My dp is from Cosmo Cricket and that fabulously appropriate sentiment is from PTI's "Flower Garden Sentiments" set. I cut the sentiment out with my Nestabilities Labels 3 and then traced the Nestability with my yellow Spica pen--then I stamped a Magnolia bee on the side!! So cute! Those flowers are from the Prima "Wildflower" collection that I stacked and adhered with dimensionals.
I addded stickles to the bee's wings, ivy & Tilda's shirt for some bling (a girl's gotta have it ya know)! I also added some grass underneath the shed in a few spots to bring in some more green to balance the card's colors. *Tip* after coloring Tilda's hair (E25, E35, Y21) I added some yellow spica pen to the lighter areas for some sparkle!!
