Good Monday morning!

It seem so strange to not have a 2Sketches4U card to share... My time is up with them, and they have a wonderful new Summer DT! Go check them out! :)

I'm still going to share a few cards though, because that's just what I do..

First up is an October Afternoon card.

Card base: Die-Cuts with a View
Patterned Paper: October Afternoon
Stickers: October Afternoon
Die Cut: October Afternoon
Rub-ons: October Afternoon

Jewels: Creative Cafe

Next is one of my favorite Purple Onion Designs cards ever!

Patterned Paper: Scenic Route
Stamps: Purple Onion Designs
Birthday Noteblock
Small Number Block set
Felt Banner: Martha Stewart
Jewels: Kaiser Crafts

I wanted this card to also be a gift card holder, so I measured a strip of patterned paper just a bit larger than the gift card and stitched it on three sides, leaving the outer edge open to slip the gift card into.

If you are in the market for a new lawn mower and enjoy a good workout.. Can I totally suggest a push mower?? I am in LOVE with ours.. Truly, there is little right now that I find more gratifying than mowing our lawn. Who knew? :)
We bought a simple one from wal-mart.

It fits in well with our attempt to be as green as we can, I really wanted to buy a used one to be even greener... but I looked in all the spots, and I couldn't find any, and was getting impatient. So... yeah. But it's well made and will I'm sure last a long time. And it cuts like a dream! Woohoo!

Takes me an hour to do our yard, which I do weekly. I consider than one of my weekly workouts towards my SOS (Summer of Skinny). Which I'm only down .5lbs. Grr..

So I've ordered Gillian Michaels 30 Day Shred video which is apparently super hard, but gives results. So I'll update on that once it arrives for anyone who cares.

I still want to lose 20lbs to be at my ideal body weight. But I'll be happy with 15... :)
Thanks so much for stopping in today..., and have a great day!

Love your cards....have enjoyed all your posts this weekend. I used to LOVE to push-mow my lawn. In fact, I did it the entire 8 1/2 mths I was neighbors thought me crazy. Now hubby uses a riding mower...........lazy!!! Good luck w/your video!

Of course your cards are just gorgeous! I am doing the biggest loser plan and I just saw your post about the 30 day shred...I think I will try this with you! I have lost 21 lbs. since March 20 just by eating right and working out moderately--so NOW it's time to pump up the intensity!
