Thanks

Morning all, I'm off again today, not sure why but happy still the same LOL.  I'm hoping to craft again today.  I'm thinking of down sizing some of my supplies, like I have hundreds of stamps I never use anymore, taking up space.  I have a lot of Stampin Up stamps just sitting there..........not to mention alot of others and paper like you wouldn't believe.  Thinking about just taking it to work and donanating it to my craft room LOL.  And who uses Light Boxes anymore??  Anyway, here is a card I made yesterday for the sketch challenge over at The Sweet Stop for SSS179.
I used the following:
MME Sunshine Paper
Stampin Up Chocolate Chip
Petite Small Oval
Petite Large Scalloped Oval
Classic Large Oval
Okay, coffee is finihsed and I am ready for a cup, oh yeah, I went to WW Sat and had lost a total of 4.1 making it a total of 29 pounds, making if 11 to goal weight.  My goal is to get there by Thanksgiving, so wish me luck LOL!  Okay, going to check out your blog now so later.............

wooohooo... great news on the WW loss!! Your card screams gorgeous autumn!!.... it's beautiful! I bet you could sell your stamps on ebay, but donating them is nice too. I have a good number of big boxes of white bisque ceramics I am have out to donate to a local senior center here... I just don't do that kind of pottery staining/painting any more and I needed the space for current crafts... ie stamping supplies!

Beautiful, I love those leaves Olga.

Great job on the weight loss!

Wow, donating all that stuff, I don't think I could get rid of any of mine. I didn't use my stamps for years. Partly because the old stamp pads and embossing powders weren't that great so I didn't enjoy using them. Now that I've got the new stuff, plus some Copics, I'm finally actually using and loving them!

I do still use my light box too. Partly because I have so many beautiful brass stencils, and partly for other things like cutting and pasting. Must be because I worked at a newspaper for years back in the days before computers. Old habits are heard to break!
