Emily's Challenge, and one of my own!

Ok so Emily posted a challenge on her blog, Bombshell Ems', and this is my card. I am doing the 12 days of Christmas for my husband and today is day #6. In Emily's challenge she said to either make your own animal print (um, wow that's harder than it sounds!) or use a neon or bright color. So I went with the latter... I used a neon green top note that my cousin Lena sent me (yup Pal, I still have a stack of 'em)!
The brightness of the green doesn't really come out in the pic, dang blackberry cameras! hahah but it's pretty stinking bright. Anyways, all this challenge business from Emily got me thinking... maybe I could post a challenge in response. And maybe, just maybe, between Lena, Emily and I would could do a challenge each week!!! I hope that you are game girls!!! Anyone else who wants to join in can feel free to do so also! Anyways... my challenge is this: Use a big and a small of the same shape. You can see what I did here... the top note is the big, and t…

Thinspiration Thursday

Well, I did weigh on Fat Tuesday<>>> I weighed this morning and I'm back to 142. It's amazing what a 4 mile walk and 10 minutes on a rowing machine can do for you.... ummm...about 2 lbs! hahahaha I feel a little better. but my BMI still reads that I'm 25.27...meaning I'm just on that cusp of being "normal" and "overweight" according to my wii. So... until I can get to "normal" I'm totally unhappy. No only did the little dude grunt at me today he says "thanks overweight" when the scale registers my weight.... JERK! If that TV wasn't so damned expensive I'd put my fist through it to ring your little neck!!!!! I wonder if I can ever make that little elf happy???? Guess all I can do is keep trying. I got invited to play volleyball at the rec center on Saturday, Maybe I'll partake....hummm.......

Good luck with your Thursday weigh ins girls!!!!

...and the Who's will all cry "boo whoooo!"

I swear the Grinch has been sabotaging my wii!!! So the batteries got low and I had to put new ones in, then I had to re-sync it to the console...then when I stepped on the stupid thing it said that I have gained weight!!!! You're a mean one, Mr. Grinch, you're a nasty wasty skunk!


So I am posting on Wednesday instead of Tuesday because I thought maybe if I weighed today I could not have to believe in what the scale said yesterday....eeerrrttt!!!! WRONG!!! It's worse today! Long story short, I've gained 3 lbs!!! 3!!!!! Yeah, that sucks!!! So I'm back to 143.... and I'm angry! On Monday I walked 3 miles and ran 1 and rode the bike for 30 minutes... yesterday i walked a mile and a half! today is another 2 hour day at the gym and I'm so discouraged that I wanna just sit at the vending machines and snack for 2 hours! Why not right?

Santy Claus why? Why are you stealing my weight loss thunder? Why?
My husband claims I could be retaining water for some reason... Lac…

Fat Tuesday is here again.

I was dreading the scale today... after a week of not working out and then Thanksgiving on top of that.... I was sure I had gained my 10 pounds back, and then some. I ate almost an entire pumpkin roll all by myself!!! (pumpkin bread filled with a sugary cream cheese filling and rolled in walnuts and topped with powdered sugar, oh man it's good) Plus we had taco night two nights ago and hello...SOMEONE ate 3 tacos!!!! Oh this is not going to be good.... I cautiously turn on the wii and step on.... i muted the volume so that I didn't have to hear the little oompa loompa in my wii grunt at me.... I didn't have any hot coffee in hand, and no other projectiles close by, so I didn't want to hear his remarks this morning. I wait... just like on the Biggest Loser with the scale beeping and numbers flying, to see what the scale registers as my heft today....humm....let it be good....hummm...I can deal with a couple of pounds....hummm....ppppllleeeeaaaasssseeee.......

You have lo…

a day late but a pound lighter!

Ok, so I'm a day late posting here....but I did weigh on time and I am a pound lighter...again! Ha ha ha so back to 140. Someday I'll make my goal, I'm thinking this is probably not the week. Although I don't plan on overindulging tomorrow, I do have a few weaknesses that will be given into I'm sure.

This week at the gym was...well...lackluster...I spent an hour of my 2 hour cardio session chatting with Lacey (wow we. Are a lot alike! Hahah thanks for becoming a friend!!) Instead of burning calories...I did give her some eliptical pointers though...hey Lacey, I forgot one!!! Put the level on like 15, the steeper the incline the easyer it is to go backwards without feeling like ur gunna fly off the back! Hahaha And I didn't even go to the gym yesterday and I most likely won't be there today. Soooo, all these excuses...I guess I need to pull out the wii fit and get my butt in gear we'll see how that goes.

Happy turkey day to you all and may you burn more …

Oh Man.....

Ok, so this week has been quite a doozie... here's the 411. I tried cutting and coloring my hair (by a professional of course) sot hat I could look cute and trendy and perhaps further motivate myself to lose more weight.... the cut is amazing... I totally love it!!! and it's way versatile... so that is a major plus! Also, it is something that I can style myself... so that is good too! hahahaha The color... I LOVED for about 2 days... then it happened!!!!!! OMG!!! I had an awful allergic reaction and have been on medication to try and get rid of the horrible things that the hair dye did to my skin! hahahahok, so there's pluses and minuses to this situation.... I have a rash all around my hair line, on my forehead, and down the back of my neck... it itches like HELL... and that is the minus.... the plus side... my Dr. prescribed me this medication that totally wires me... so my house is spotless, my laundry is done, and my kitchen is Filled with confections! hahahah Down si…

It's Tuesday Again...

So I was feeling bad about myself this morning, I know that I had a bad week. My diet slipped back into what I used to eat, my weight I know has increased by at least 5 lbs. and I just didn't even want to weigh. I did though... even before I got coffee... and it wasn't all that bad. So I only gained a pound back... that's not so bad.... I can go to the gym today and work that off, I hope! hahahah I didn't even set foot in the gym last week, so I went yesterday and then I'm going to be there today, and I pretty much have to go tomorrow... so back to my 2 hour cardio sessions and then I can finish working off some of this weight. I just read Lena's blog (http://www.scrapbutterfly.blogspot.com/) for inspiration.... she is doing well and I'm proud of her... so I need to keep up!

For breakfast today I didn't make a great choice though.... I wonder if the fact that I ate a banana canceled out the fact that I ate a brownie????? NO??? Well crap. Oh well, I have…

Thursday already?

Ok, so I have a good excuse for not posting on Tuesday.... it was my birthday! hahaha but I did weigh and I didn't gain or lose anything. I'm ok with that. I got to go shopping and i bought pants that are 2 sizes smaller!!!! And I don't even have to suck my gut in to zip them! I'm so excited! I did go the the gym on Tuesday, although all I did was walk 2 miles... and that's it for the gym this week, guess I'm slackin. Maybe I'll dust off the wii and so a little step aerobics.... we shall see.... I'm more interested in Christmas shopping, that burns lots of calories right????

Tuesday already?

Well, I woke up, came downstairs, had a cup of coffee, and then it hit me..... gosh, it's Tuesday! I immediately stopped drinking my coffee and got out the scale... after all, I can't have all of that heavy liquid in my belly then it's time to weigh. So i turned on the stupid thing cursing myself for not doing more this week. It's been a rough week, but that's always an excuse. Evan has been sick all week, I had company over, and well, I've been feeling crummy. All of those adding up in my brain, I'm sure I haven't done so hot this week. Oh well, here's the moment of truth.... YEAY!!!!! i finally passed that 10 lb mark!!!! I'm 139! wootwoot!!!! I'm happy, not happy enough to pull up my socks and go to the gym, but happy! hahahaha So I hop on over to Lena's blog: http://www.scrapbutterfly.com/ and got a little progress tracker for my sidebar. She is the most resourceful Internet person ever! Lena can find ANYTHING on the Internet! She'…

Seriously Fat Tuesday....

So, I get up to weigh this morning, thinking I'm good, I've got this... I get on the wii scale, and that little ass groans. This is not going to be a good morning... the wii measures my balance and I'm all good there, then it tells me my weight.... I wanted to cry.... 143.... so I gained... I thought that can't be rite... so i went in and used the restroom, and came back.... thought light and airy thoughts, and it said i weighed 142.5, so I'mgoin' with that. I gained a pound an a half. I'm sad, I'mfrustrated, and I want to go eat something horrible for me..... well actually I don't. My mom made these cinnamon coffee cake muffins and sent some home with me, I ate a half of one and though, what the heck am I doing???? I want to create a calorie deficit, not eat worse stuff... so half way through this decedentyummy concoction, i put it down, I'm going to go have toast and fruit. That will serve me better. I need to work hard this week to get rid of…

Cake, cake and more cake!

OK, so I have quite a few cakes commin' up... here's the first. This Toy Story cake was made for a little boy who was turning 6 today. Obviously, he loves Toy Story 3, so that's where I went with this cake. Here's all the pics:
The entire box is made from cake and then covered in fondant. The packing material is air popped popcorn! ha ha I used an airbrush to distress the box so that it looked beaten up and old, I hope that translates in the pictures. OK, well it's off to watch the SF Giants win, I'll be back for Fat Tuesday and keep checking back for more cakes soon!

It's not Tuesday anymore......

I know, I know, I know, It's not Tuesday anymore.... but I did weigh, and I was so depressed that I never made it a priority to post. So, here's my results... I gained weight... yeah... so I'm back to 143... not what I wanted to do... but I didn't work out a whole bunch either. I know that I need to create a calorie deficit to lose weight, but I just haven't gotten there yet.

I spoke with my friend Christina, who is a raw foods chef... no really... raw foods chef./... and she's amazing!!! She gave me some great pointers to get some fat out of my diet and not feel like I'm depriving myself. She told me of the evils of meat and dairy, although I don't think I could every fully give up either, but I will be cutting WAY back!!! I already have... I've cut a lot of dairy out, and I only have meat once or twice a week, and it's way less of a portion than I used to have, and you know what.... I FEEL BETTER. She also convinced my to buy almond milk...seri…

Fat Tuesday, yeay!

Ok, so here's the deal... I was dreading weighing this morning; I've been sick all week. eating like crap and sitting on the couch doing a whole lottanada. So, I sloughed downstairs, poured myself a cup of coffee, and had a Mexicanstare down with my wii... I never knew that inanimate objects were so good at staring contests, but it did win despite my valiant efforts, and i turned it on, no going back now... I stepped on the scale and the little man inside the wii said "oh." That little jerk almost got hot coffee in the face... if I could have found him.... ha ha ha

So after all of that you can guess my astonishment when the little progress line stopped moving UNDER my old one... yeah, that little progress tracker stopped, my heart lept and i actually smiled.... "no way," I actually said out loud, "please, just let it be at least a pound, I'd be stoked with losing a pound this week, I don't deserve it, but I'll take it!" I clicked the…

I've got a golden ticket...

Come on, sing it with me... ohhh I've got a golden tickeeeettttt..... hahahok, so I was never a member of Glee club (although a HUGE fan of the show). But, here is one of the 30 birthday invitations that I made this weekend:
The candy bars are huge and wrapped in a custom printed paper wrapper. The golden tickets are worded just like the ones from the movie (Gene Wilder version of course) and printed on metallic gold cardstock that I found at Michael's. I totally LOVE the outcome of these... as a kid, I would have totally hugged the person who invited me to their party by way of candy bar! ha ha haOk, I'm still not feeling well, totally didn't go to the gym today, and I'm being a luff sitting on my couch watching HLN... Will I ever be well??? I'm going to make some hot tea and hope that helps my throat feel any better, wish me luck!

Wednesday? Really?

Ok, so Fat Tuesday has come and gone, and I totally didn't even realize it! ha ha ha Go figure. So my post is a day late, oh well, so's life. Yesterday I came down with a head cold that made me feel like I got hit in the head with a freight train!!! I'm currently laying in bed with one econo sized box of tissue nearly empty and a red nose that would make Rudolph jealous. Being sick sucks... well, it blows....it's nose...through a costco sized case of tissue, only to realize it needs more...

So I ended up weighing this morning. It paid off though.... I weigh 143.5!!!! Yup, that's a total of 6.5 lbs that I have lost so far. Now, mind you, I'm sure 3.5 lbs of that was probably snot over the past few days, but oh well, I'll take it.... Weight loss, is weight loss. Let's re-cap how I got there... shall we?

Last weekend I was doing wedding coordinating... so Friday was rehearsal, not to mention I had to make 2 wedding cakes (well one was a cupcake tower) and …

The sweet smell of the ballpark!

I am posting this card for 365 challenge, it has been a long while since I have posted for them, but when I checked in this morning... they had a challenge I just couldn't resist. It is to use a sweet smell to inspire your card. well to me... the sweet smell of the ballpark is always alluring. So here it is... take me out to the ball game, postseason starts October 6Th and I'm sooo excited!!! Go Giants!!! P.S. I need to thank Emily for the awesome idea for this card! Thanks so much Em for your creativeness! She made the original card that I CASED for the idea... you can check it at her blog, by clicking here. Sorry I didn't post this part earlier. I'm an awful person today. It'll never happen again Emily, I humbly appologize.Sent via BlackBerry by AT&T

Fat Tuesday, week 2!

Ugh! That's what I have to say. This week has been super challenging. First I was told I had shingles and given medication that I had to take, with food, 5 times a day.... now I know that it is a good thing to eat 5 times a day, but that is a seriously hard thing to do when the medication makes you wanna ralph!!!! So I went back for a second opinion yesterday. To my relief, I was told that I have a pulled muscle in my shoulder/back and it is pinching nerves against my therasic (I don't know how to properly spell that one!) vertebrae. Not a good thing, very painful, but WAYYYYY better than the alternatives. So I was given some Motrin and sent home to rest. ALSO not a good thing since cake orders have been pouring in! That is exciting, but daunting considering this weekend is the wedding that I have been coordinating also. I guess I'll be getting my work outs rolling and kneading fondant! Yeay me! hahahah This pic is of me helping my son blow out his candles on his cupcake t…

Fat Tuesdays!

But it's not Tuesday........!!!!!!!!!

OK, so my bestest Pal in the whole entire world is posting a THINspiration Thursday blog each week to help her get healthy and lose some lbs.! I'm so excited for her, and I'm so inspired by her, that I want to copy her. I did make sure it was OK with her first, I didn't want to steal her thunder or anything. Anyways... check out her postings at http://www.scrapbutterfly.blogspot.com/. So I am going to start mine as Fat Tuesdays! I hope that someday soon it can be skinny Tuesdays, but I digress...



Here's the dreaded pic of me....

Seriously... check out that double chin and muffin top!!!!!!! this pic was taken a few months ago, but it just rings more true today. I am starting my journey at 150 lbs. Some may think, oh that's not so bad.... but I'm only 5'3" tall, and that's on a good day (like when I'm wearing heels!! hahahaha) !!

Money, money, money, money..... money!

'Come on, sing it, you know you wanna..... I'll wait.... sing.... OK, now that we got THAT outta our systems (it will be stuck in you head all day now... ha ha ha!) I think we can move on. The challenge today was to make a card that has something to do with money! SWEET!!!! I found this quote online and thought that it would be PERFECT for the challenge..... My Pal sent me a bunch of fun stuff, and in that was this digi of these cute little girls shopping.... so I decided to use that.... thanks Pal! I finished it off with some silver and gold brads (wish those were real!) and called it a day. I played with putting ribbons and bows and flowers and such on this card.... I know.... gasp...Jammie made a card without a ribbon on it!!!!! But nothing seemed to fit just right... I think simple was the way to go with this, monochromatic, and let the words speak for themselves..... My sister LOVES to shop... so I think this card may go to her.... hahahahahaOK, now onto the IMPORTANT ST…

A happy birthday sketch!

Sorry the pic is a bit blurry, but I haven't had my coffee yet either, so my eyes are just a bit blurry too! hahahaha I LOVE this sketch! I could make 100 cards using it!!!! I also LOVE this little dragon! He's so stinking cute!!!!! You can't see here, but his legs are on pop dots so that they hang out!!! hahahahaha he's got a candle in one hand and a balloon in the other, and let me tell you how hard her was to cut out with no coffee in my system... wowie!!!!! What a fun card... I think this one may go to my Goddaughter, she'd LOVE him too! ha ha ha Ok... need to go hit the brew button on my morning! Read the paper, then it's off to Michael's for some cake supplies.... have a HUGE Star Wars (yuck) cake to do this week....

Anyways, you can see all of the Ward Digis by clicking on the logo in my sidebar here.The Criss Cross is the top note paper in the background. Fun, bright, summer colors. The little sentiment tab on the side says "I'll always be Daddys' 'lil girl." What a great card for Father's day. Hop on over to get this MUST HAVE DIGI NOW!!!! Now... really, I'll wait..... la..... la....la.....la....la.....la.....laa..... OK, got it? Good! ha ha ha Don't you feel better now?!?!?Well it is night night time, and I'm totally beat!

It needs something

Allrighty.... I'm catching up on this weeks' 365 card challenges...yeay me!!! So I'm going to make all the ones that I missed.... My week has been hectic and crazy and next week is going to be 4 times worse!!!!!!! I saw this challenge the day it posted.... thought about it.... came up blank...and never went back to it, until now.... So, the challenge was "it needs something" as in this stamp would be cute if it had..... (fill in the blank). I finally came up with using Tess here...she needs something in her hand....and what's funner than a gift??? ha ha ha So I made this tiny little gable box! it's filled with chocolate covered espresso beans! Yum!!!! I wonder who I can send it to......Sent via BlackBerry by AT&T

Tri-color

First things first, I see I have a new follower!!!!!Yeay!!!! Welcome Janice, and thanks for becoming a follower of Sweet Sentiment! Yeay!!!! Happy Dance! ha ha ha OK, on to the cards......So this one was that we could only use 3 colors!!!! Seriously..... that's it, and not even different shades... so I used black, white and teal to be safe.... because black and white were the exception to the rule... and i used teal card stock, teal embossing powder and teal colored pencils, they are all the same shade, but sorta come off different do to the mediums..... so.... black and white be damned.... tri-colored it still is! hahahahah NEXT!!!Sent via BlackBerry by AT&T

4 buttons and 4 bows

So, turn you head sideways since I took this with my blackberry and I can't rotate the pics on here.... you're just gunna have to bear with me! It's also super hard to see the embossing on here, but it is embossed with a sizzix folder that says "Happy Birthday" all over it in different fonts. Ho hum... Wish this pic would have come out clearer, it really is a cool card, in person. Sent via BlackBerry by AT&T

Card recipe day

Card recipes are hard for me. I never can seem to get the "ingredients" to go together well. Thank God I don't have that problem in life, or no one would shop at my bakery! ha ha ha But people rave about my cakes and goodies, so my problem must apply only to cards...wshew!!!! OK, so the card is the right size, thanks to pre-fab cards in a package!!! hahaha love buying those 100 kagillionpre-cut, pre-creased cards! ha ha ha Awesome! the 2 patterned papers are the green strip and the stripped strip, coincidentally they are also the "stripes" requirement since they are both printed with stripe patterns. The ribbon is pretty obvious here since it's NEON!!!!! ha ha ha and the stamped image and sentiment are front and center.... so I think it's all there! Wootwoot!!!!Sent via BlackBerry by AT&T

Avatar for a friend.

My friend, Naomi, wanted and Avatar-esk cake for her birthday last week. Well, ask and you shall receive! ha ha ha! I marbled the fondant with the colors from the movie, and then used shimmery ribbons to match. I also used luster dust and some rubber stamps to make swirls and flowers all over the cake in iridescent edible glitter. I think it turned out great. I tried to mimic the lights on the females' face with the little dots all over the cake, but I'm not so sure that came across well. Then I added the pic of the male and voila, Avatar-esk cake! hahahaha Maybe, perhaps, possibly I should have actually watched the movie before committing to the cake. Just a thought...

Strawberry Lemon cupcakes! Yum!!!

These are Lemon cupcakes with fresh, sliced strawberries and lemon zest on them. Talk about yum-o!!! I just made them (like a week or so ago) because I was wishing for summer, and they seemed like a summer flavor to me! Plus, I was experimenting with my lemon cake recipe.

Hunters' cake

This is a super duper chocolate cake that I made for my cousin for his birthday today! He is way into hunting and outdoors, so of course I made him a cake with that theme. It's hard to photograph, especially since I'm taking pics with my blackberry, but hey, I tried. anyways, the raccoon is ransacking the tent, and the campfire is birthday candles, the "rocks" are actually chocolates, and all the other animals are just sorta milling around! ha ha ha Ok I muse finish my chores, and i have a few other posts I'm going to put up here today!

1920's

Ok, so while most of you seem to be thinking Coco, flappers, and beads.... I'm thinking...... Steamboat willie!!!!!! Yeah!!!! 1920 is when Walt Disney came up with Steamboat Willie later known as Mickey Mouse..... call it a generation gap, but I just didn't think of flappers when I thought of 1920! hahahahahok, ok, ok... I did a little.... but I didn't want to make a card that looks like everyone elses' card (even though yours is super awesome Gloria). So here's Willie:
I had to putt out the modern Mickey mouse plush to hold my card for the photo.... it was a must! ha ha ha Anyways, the comic strip in the background of the card is storyboard I found online from the Steamboat Willie cartoon, and behind the sentiment I watermarked the 1920's image of Steamboat Willie himself! It's kinda hard to see in the pic, but look really closely and you can make him out. I just thought that the sentiment was funny.... it is on red card stock and lifted up on pop dots (man…

Mother's super sketchy sunday!

The difference between a normal SSS and Mother's Day SSS is this;
Moms get (lots) more artistic liberty today!
Case in point... My sketch! Ha ha ha Check it out!

So, the kids and the Coach represent the 3 triangles on the sketch, there's the artistic liberties I was talking about, and then the little soccer digi is the circle, and the sentiment is the rectangle. Really, other than the triangles, i followed this sketch pretty exact! I don't know, maybe it was the cake and coffee that I had for breakfast, too much sugar, and we all know how "special" coffee can be! ha ha ha anyways, here's the inside of the card too:

Yup, Evan actually, really, totally played in his soccer game yesterday, it was a good Mother's Day gift! Until yesterday he would not go in to play during a game if you bribed him with ANYTHING! hahahah and we all know how good mom's are at bribing kids to do stuff!! wink wink! But yesterday he played a while quarter, now maybe next game he&…

Trees and Twine and Triangles too!

Ok, this one is totally top trio worthy, right??? Hahaha I wasn't too sure about it while I was making it, but the more I put on it, the more I liked it! Ok off to Evan's soccer game!!!

Lovely leafy lace

This was a hard card for me since I'm not a lacey, lovely, leaf-y sort of girl... But if you want top trio, you have to step out of your comfort zone every once in a while! Ha ha ha! So there it is... I love the stamped lace at the bottom!!!! That's about as close to lace as this girl gets! Ha ha ha! See y'all later!

The 3 C's, and a new outlook

OK, so here's my new outlook....I'M NOT GOING TO STOP UNTIL I GET A CARD IN THE TOP TRIO AT 365 CARDS!!!!!! I know, ambitious huh? But I swear I've made some cool cards that people said should have been in the top trio for 365 cards, but I just can't seem to get one there... so... I'm making it my mission!Here's my first attempt. The card challenge from 365 today is to include the 3 C's, circle, cream color, and cross stitch. I got it!! The circles are the brads at the top of the black paper, the cream color is obviously the card stock, and (Yes Rose I did go old school here) the cross stitch is the sentiment. I know that I always complain about not being able to do some of the things that Pam challenges us to do (i.e. whip stitching!!!!) but I can cross stitch!

Save-the-Date for me!

Ok, so the rebel in me is back! ha ha ha This "Save-the-Date" "CARD" isn't a card at all, it's a box!! Sorry about the sideways picture, but hey, I'm having a super hard time getting it to link up. So tilt your head to the side and enjoy! hahahaha Inside is 2 tea bags, 2 sugar packs, and 2 honey packs! Sent via BlackBerry by AT&T

Front, Back, and In-between!!!

As the title suggests, the challenge was to decorate your card, front back, and inside.... so here's mine!!! It's hard to see in the picture, but next to the little fairy on the back it says "Hand Stamped By Jammie." Ok, I have to figure out why one of my cards isn't posting.... be back later!

Alpha sticker, stamp, and red, oh my!

Day 51 brings another trio or random items, alpha sticker (the cheers and congrats stickers are alphas), stamp (that's my lil bear there), and the color Red (the clips in his hands). This card also fits the sketch for Instyle Stamps! Woot woot! I think I got 'er done! Next!

A card of many items

Ok, as the title suggests, here's my card of many random items! That ribbon is older than a year, by far!!! The brown corduroy brads were a gift from my Pal. And I totally forgot that I had this sheet of paper from about 6 years ago (or more) that had a bunch of die cuts on it, that's the Butterfly, I used another Butterfly from it on the inside of the card too!
