Life is Great!
What a weekend!
I hope you all had a wonderful Mother's Day! We celebrated Mother's Day and my birthday this weekend...well, if you include Monday in the weekend.
Anyway, it was a busy weekend with company and a fun Monday night dinner out with the family. My hubby gave me an Android for my birthday...and I couldn't be happier. Now I have to learn how to use it! It'll be a fun challenge.
I made my Mom a really quick card. I can't remember where I first saw a similar one, but it involved paper piecing, which I love!
I had fun taking a gel pen and outlining the paper pieces to highlight them. I like this simple style.
Here's what I've been pinning lately...very Pinteresting!
I started a "Quick Cards" board for some inspiration...sometimes you just need an idea for a quick card!
Have you heard of YUPO paper?
There's some new pins on my Free Digital Stamps board!
The photo below is the last pin on my Altered/Recycled Board...many of which are DIY.
I've been walking every day lately. I am journaling it on my Pinterest Board "The View from Here"
When I've lost about 30 lbs, I'll start posting some pictures of myself on this journey to health!
Well, have a great week! Remember, life may be hard, but it's easier if you choose to be happy anyway!
