AMYRS #49 and ATSDT #29- Winter Weather!!

Thanks to everyone for all the well wishes. I am taking this situation as a wake up call to get my health together. I've gained a lot of weight in the last 2 yrs since having Nate and my cholesterol is high. At 26, this is insane :) So, I am going on the medifast diet and wii fit-ing my way to some weight loss. YAY!! My order will be in this week and I know starting around the holidays isn't easy but I have to. I think getting some of this weight off will also help get everything hormonally back in order. Once I get some weight off, we will start trying again.

I had a great weekend. I am finally NOT tired and nauseous anymore and I think my body is getting back to "normal". We put up some Christmas decorations and the ugliest little tree ever. Nate is definitely in his "terrible 2's" stage so I was not going to put up my big tree and all my nice ornaments so they could be pulled off and thrown around the house! I also took some pics of Nate to use in the Christmas Cards. Here is one of him and the "Grinch". Sam and I managed a theater when the live action movie came out and they sent us this huge Grinch stuffed animal that we still have.

My craft area is in definitely need of cleaning. However, I did get my 2 challenges done. I am working on taking better pics so here are some of them.

Amy R's Sketch Challenge- AMYRS49- Mittens for you.
Supplies- Stamps: CTMH; Paper: American Crafts, CTMH, K and Company; Ink: Palette Noir, Moulin Rouge; Coloring Medium- Kohrinoor and OMS; Other- Nestabilities.

This was a fun challenge- loved the sketch! I used my new nestabilities labels one dies and this fun CTMH retired set my TAC Secret Sister Sent. The mittens are cut from this cute mitten paper by American Crafts, It's Cold Outiside.

ATSDT#29- Winter Weather

Supplies- Stamps: CC Designs; Paper: Bazzill; DP: My Mind's Eye Christmas Short Stack; Coloring- Kohrinoor and OMS; Ink: Palette Noir; Other: Target Ribbon, MS Snowflake Punch, Stickles, 1 1/2 inch punch.

This color challenge is for a chance to be the Guest Designer for ATS and CC Designs. I am waiting on my new sets to come in but until them I pulled out an old but wonderful CC Designs set. The color challenge was for SU colors but I used bazzill coordinating colors with this My Minds Eye Paper. I love how this turned out!!

I hope you enjoy- I need to get cracking on Christmas cards and gifts!! I hope to share more this week!
