Been a very long time since I took a Techno Monday Challenge
Skip went back to work second shift, and my son worked from 12 to 9 so it was a real joy for me to come home from work yesterday to a house to myself!!!
It's so nice to be able to do what I want to do and not worry about anyone else. No more getting up at 5:30 am to write up and post to my blog.
I used a stamp set by FireCrackerDesignsby Pamela. Isn't the cat cute! Other stamps used Web Wishes, Cheesecloth, and dot wheel.
Colors: Black, Lavender Lace, Old Olive, Creamy Caramel.
And keeping with Halloween....On Dawns Stamping Thoughts blog I made a Frankie card. He is just adorable. Colors used: Kiwi Kiss, Lavender Lace, White, and Black. Check out Dawn's blog she has a great video on how to make this cute little guy!
Stamp sets: Smarty Pants, and I used the larger photo punch to make the bolts on the side of his head
My Weight Watchers meeting got moved to a new day, Thursday. I will be posting Weight Loss Blog candy Thursday night. I reached another 10 pound goal. So check back for a chance to win!

I have some recipes that I made over the weekend that I want to share.
1 large onion chopped
1 package taco seasoning. (I got Old El Paso they had one that was 40% less sodium)
2 cups whole kernel frozen corn
1 small can chicken broth (I got reduced fat 40% less sodium)
1 can black beans un-drained
1 can white beans un-drained
1 can fat free re-fried beans
1 can stewed tomatoes (salt free)
1 can tomato pieces (salt free)
spray dutch oven with Pam brown onions, add the rest of the ingredients. Cover and simmer 1 hour. Makes 15 cups. 1 point per serving. Can be frozen. Which is what I did. It makes it quick and easy to grab a bag of soup and heat in the microwave.
Angel Food Delights
1-Betty Crocker Angel Food Cake Mix
1-20 oz can of crushed pineapple in its own juice
Mix both of the ingredients in a batter bowl. Line muffin tin with paper liners add the mixture. Bake at 350 for 20 minutes. Makes 36. Each muffin 1 point each. YUMMY!!!!!! I froze these also. I can just grab and go!

I received a nice encouragement card from Lisa the other day. Thanks Lisa!
Not much planned for the weekend. I do have to do the grocery shopping, and I want to check on mom again to make sure she is okay, and since I got most of my house work done yesterday I'm going to spend the rest of the weekend stamping.
I need it!!!!!

Now not only is my key ring big it's heavy!!! See the large thing that looks like a diaper pin? That has been on my ring since hubby joined the Navy back in 82. I had a problem with losing my keys so I wanted to put something large on my ring so I wouldn't lose them so much. Anyway......I had the WW leader weigh me again and my total loss for the week is 2.6 pounds. Now I'm feeling much better with that number! Total loss to date is 29.6
So we are really close to more Weight Loss Blog Candy readers!!! Should be posting that next Thursday.
I did work in some time to stamp last night .
This is a new technique that was in the TJ August newsletter. Called Bandanna. The stamp set in the background is French Quarter from See-De's. The word stamp is from Baroque Motif. Other things used: Distress ink Mustard Seed, Peeled Paint, Brick Red, StazOn Jet Black, white gel pen, sponges, clip, small prima flower, and pearl bead. Cardstock: Basic Black, Summer Sun, and Whisper White.
Great news.....My Big Shot shipped yesterday. I didn't get my order in till the 11th which was the first day to order from the new SU catty so it took one week to ship. They must be busy in UT.
Okay off to work.

Normally I'd be thrilled that it was finally Friday....however I have to work all day Saturday. On the good side.....I shouldn't have to work another Saturday again for awhile. YAY.
I received this beautiful card yesterday from Kat. If I'm not mistaken these are silver open image stickers, that are colored in after being applied to the cardstock. Kat didn't you get these on the Ohio trip at the Stamping Convention? Love the card!!!!
My son John gave me a wonderful compliment yesterday. I was shopping at the grocery store that he works at. He came up next to me with a cart full of stuff to put up and he stopped and did a double take on me. Then he goes "Mom you have really lose weight I didn't even recognize you from behind" Now that put a big smile on my face!!!!
Well I'm off to work. Hope everyone has a great weekend!!!!

I have to go to work today, and on a Saturday. This overtime is killing me but does look good in my paycheck. I'm thinking about using some of the money to purchase the new Big Shot package that SU is now offering. It's either that or new clothes at the end of summer. All my clothes now are just tad bit to big. None of my dress pants that I wear for work fit. Thank goodness they are letting the ladies wear Capri's now. I did pick up two pair of those at a good price. Hoping they will get me though August. Can you believe it's August!!!! Summer is just rolling on by.
We finally got some ripe tomatoes from the garden. YAY. We also have been enjoying the romaine lettuce we planted. So glad I got Skip to plant that instead of the leaf lettuce. It's so much better!
