Color Inspiration #40 and such

These were the colors to work with...

Card #1- my fav. of the two. I am so faithful to you. :) 

I love how this stacking turned out. For once I hand an idea before I even started.

Card #2- You're so Sweet. (I like the other one better personally, but that is just me)

Look at all the sparkle!

My cat C.J. (Chief Junior) loves when I make cards. He keeps me company in my craft/guest bedroom all the time.


So it is 4am right now as I type (no matter what the blog says I did this at). I decided to do the color inspiration challenge by KWerner's blog to try and cure my insomnia. It always IS a challenge to me. I'm still so new at this crafty card/scrapbook stuff. Working with what I got is all I can do, since I don't have as many tools as most of thoses who post out there. My goal tonight was to try and use my new Sizzix square #2 die in my Big Shot. I was determined to use it, since I was soooooo excited that Michael's actually had that die block. I got the last one there when I went on my NoNo shopping escapade a few weeks ago- My hubby still is mad at me for that. I also fell in love with this flower/dandy. print paper from my giganto pack of designer paper by Lisa Cohen, which I got when the Cropping Station was moving buildings and having a big sale (you got if free if you bought to a certain amount).
Sadly I found out today my beloved Cropping Station (that I just mentioned above) is going out of business. I guess their move to a new location just wasn't working out, and with the economy- you know how things are. *tears* Now all I have left then will be Michael's and A.C. Moore. So no little shops for miles around here.
So I am soooo close to my 10 lbs lost in a month goal. This whole watch what I eat thing is WAY tough. It is especially tough with work- my hours are all over the place and my co-workers like to order out and bring in sweets and goodies a lot. Somehow I have managed to keep off what I have lost thus far this week- don't know how, but I have. I guess with getting rid of caffeine from my diet completely has REALLY helped me. My heartburn is pretty much gone since I stopped drinking caffeine and eating sugary stuff, which makes me one happy chick.
I hope to maybe get some more crafting this weekend (Friday/Saturday) since that is basically my weekend now with my newer work schedule. Working on Sunday's isn't soooo bad, though my days get all screwy in my head since I have off on Friday's and Saturdays and think my fridays are saturdays and my saturdays are sunday, etc. You get my drift.
