WOW!! It's Been A While

I didn't realize it had been so long since I blogged!!!  My vacation was so awesome... it was great seeing my family and watching my grandson head off to kindergarten!!!  He is just sooooooo cute!!!  I loved my week on the coast with all my sister crafters!!!  We had a great time and Penny and Bea did an incredible job organizing everything!!!  I met some wonderful women and had such fun learning new techniques and completing a ton of shoebox projects!!! I also got to eat my favorite seafood... steamed clams!!! Yummmmmm

Maybe the most important thing that happened to me while I was in Oregon was to learn about Medifast from another crafter, Donna Downey, who lost a ton of weight and now coaches others on their Medifast journey.  I have been on the program for just over 2 weeks and have lost a total of 14 pounds and feel healthier than I have in years!!!  I still have 34 more pounds to go but I feel so free of the dependence I had on food.  It has been my "drug of choice" for all my life and I finally feel like I have a solution!!!  Thank You, Lord!!!

Now on to a card I made for my friend, Carole.  I used the texture duet technique from the latest Technique Junkies newsletter.  The stamp is from Inky Antics (isn't she adorable??)... The sentiment is from Stamps of Life.  I actually put the "trick or" on the envelope... LOL... both embossing folders are from Cuttlebug and I got the pattern cardstock from Scrappin Deals n Steals.  I will be back with more later this weekend... thanks for looking!!!
