I finally got to stamp again!!

Hello there,

It has been a while since I last stamped. With finishing the cleanup of our old house getting it ready for renters and my mom visiting me for a week, I have not had the time to sit and stamp. I actually got a chance to finally make a card yesterday, but I wasn't finished with it until night time. Since my camera takes horrible pictures at night in my new house, I decided to wait until today to take a good pic and upload it.

This is for yesterday's SCS's Technique Challenge 206 - Recessed Window.

All of the stamps are High Hopes Stamps. I colored my ocean bottom using the technique Black Magic. I used my Watercolor Pencils and mineral spirits on dark paper. I used Prisma Color Pencils and mineral spirits to color the diver and the oyster. I also paper toled them. I added a pearl to the oyster.

I like how it turned out.

What do you think?
Well, I thought I'd give you an update on my diet and exercise. Yesterday, I measured and weighed. It has been exactly one month since I have began. I measure 9 different areas when I measure and so far I have lost a total of 18 1/2 inches all over!!! The sad thing is I have only lost 2 lbs. I know it takes time for the weight to start coming off, but it sure is frustrating when you don't see your work on the scale. I do figure though if I keep up with losing the inches the way I am I will be at where I am trying to get to in about 4 months which is perfect timing for the summer!! I'll keep you posted each month. Wish me luck!!!
