Remember Me?

Happy November! So sorry I have been neglecting my readers! Just haven't had much time or desire this past week to stamp. It's been cold, then I wasn't feeling well. I even missed my Weight Watchers meeting this week. I woke up dizzy and just couldn't get myself going. I did do a weigh in at home. I lost one pound. YAY still going down. We have 4 more pounds to go till another Weight Loss Blog Candy can be posted.

Hubby and me went to Hickey lake yesterday. We took a walk around the lake. It's just over a 3 mile walk. Weather was beautiful yesterday. Perfect day for a long walk. There are lots of hills going around this lake, there is also a area of sand, and stairs going up to the lake. Needless to say I got a good workout!

I cleaned up the stamp room yesterday. It really needed it! Had to have hubby put up another dowel so I could put more ribbon on. YIKES not more ribbon!!! Yes more ribbon. We went out after the hike yesterday to Archivers and Michael's. Had to buy more ribbon. I also picked up a pack of Basic Grey Wassail paper.

I did find time to make this card yesterday. I even had to dig out an old stamp set. Holiday Hanna. I used the pumpkin from that set in the corner. The larger image is from InkaDinkaDoo. The cool fall ribbon I found at Pat Catan's. The cream background was done using a texture plate from Sizzix. I rubbed the raised edge with a sponged and Ruby Red ink. Hey you also see that I used some of the corner pieces that you sent me? I just layered the pumpkin color and mustard color ones together.

Remember those cat costumes that Sarah and I was working on? We did get them finished. Autumn (right)and Lilly just loved them! Hoping to get a another pic from mom Lisa with there faces done. She was going to draw whiskers on them.
Okay I'm going to close for today. I need to get dressed and go visit mom. She was doing better. They changed her meds and the last visit I had with her she was more alert and wasn't crying. Happy to see that!
The time got changed we gained back an hour. I got up at 6 this morning, but I still got a good nights sleep.
