What a happy girl i am, i had my first weigh in last night and im so happy to report that ive lost 4lbs, i couldnt be any happier, start as you mean to go on and all that! hopefully that will be the first loss of many to come, and i will back to where i like to be best.

Onto a crafty note, when i arrived home from work today i had a package waiting for me they were my art impressions stamps, ive wanted them for an age but something else always emptied my craft purse before i got them. so anyway i decided it was time to give in and buy them.

I had an hour to spare before i was heading out of the door to take a brayer class, and this was the card or should i say picture card i came up with. Its not your ordinary folding card it has a stand up frame on the back so it stands like a photo frame.
I stamped and masked the plantpot first then added the gate before adding lots of foliage to finish the scene, i then coloured with distress inks and adirondack. I used my scalloped edge to create the cloud background, then i matted all the layers and edged in stickles.

The class i went to tonight taken by Annette Lees was fun, i brushed up on some brayering and stamping techniques and created some lovely pieces i will share those tomorrow when the lighting is better for photos.
