Oh So Lovely


Happy Saturday to all!! Even though I worked at the office 8 hours today, I am home and in my comfy clothes...which makes me a happy stamper :) I have to share something well, not funny to me, but probably to the rest of dieters around our world. I am a lifetime member of Weight Watchers (plug) and I just bought a new recipie book from Weight Watchers. I made one of their recipies, which calls for bell pepper, onions, eggs, hash browns, no fat feta cheese, oregano, salt, and pepper. I thought at first, "I can handle this." But after the 3rd serving I was like NO WAY! I am not one to throw away food and so I did eat the whole thing, but the 4th serving was with lots of salsa. So what is the purpose of me spending money on a cookbook and taking the time to chop everything up and then...it tastes like yuk? Heck, I coulda been stamping and making cards. I chalk this one up as a learning experience, and I will go back to the darn cookbook and try another recipie, just because I am trying to eat healthy. However, it will be a few before I try another one of these recipies. Right now, all I want is a baked potatoe rolled in EVOO and seasalt and smothered in REAL butter and sour cream...and I would not say no to some shredded cheese and bacon bits to top it off :)
K...sorry...You will have to click on the card to see the details. I did not put a sentiment, cause I want to save this one for a special occasion. This card was made with SU Oh So Lovely Stamp, SU Fall Flowers Designer Series Paper, Soft Sky Cardstock, Classic Black Stamp Pad Ink, Prismacolor Pencils and Gamsol, Copic Atyou Glitter Pens, SU Soft Sky Ribbon, Dots by Dress It Up, and Pearls by Wilton. Have a Great Rest of the Weekend to you all :)

The flowers stand out on this card because of their color. The aqua and white bow is so cutesie. You are always ever the great color coordinator, the paper matches. I am astonished at the detailed work you create.
