Now i have to finish up on a get well card for my nephew who just got out of hospital for back surgery.  The other 2 cards are for My sis-in-laws for their birthdays  April 5 and April 13 so i had better get busy on them.

Finishing up on Relay Items

The top 2 pictures is what i am trying to finish up for the Relay for Life and the bottom picture is some of the things i already delivered to them.  The woman Emelia  gave me the biggest ole Hug.  The rest i will take over this friday.

New Birthday card

I think this card turned out really good.  About 2 months ago i printed the paper with the roses and newspaper on it from my Imagine.  Didn't know what i wanted to do with it  so i left it laying around so i could glance at it every now and then.  Recently i bought some things from CottageCutz.  This little bird was one of them.  Its Called  HAPPY BIRD.  I bought it from the Scrapping Cottage.  Its labeled CottageCutz and designed by Peachy Keen Stamps.  On the Package it shows the bird in blue but I like the red  and finally decided what  to do with the paper i had printed.  I used stockcard that i bought at target and its really nice card stock too.  I colored the belly of the bird with my copic marker and the feet and beak with my bic Mark it's.  The sentiment is from MYCREATIVETIME.....Polka Dot "SURPRISE"  and the inside is also from the same stamp set.

Have been MIA

I haven't made any thing lately except the items i am donating to the RELAY FOR LIFE.  Their sale goes on this week end and i have been frantic trying to get everything done for that.   Also has anyone having any problems updating the gypsy for the imagine updates.   I have tried now 4 times and it does ok up to where it starts the Uploading of the Updates.  Then it seems to freezes there.  Any thoughts on what i need to do.   I had no problem updating my Imagine.   Its already updated.

Weight Loss at 8 weeks
