Where Have I Been?

Oh my goodness I know it has been a long time since I've posted anything on my blog. Where is she you may have asked?! Well, I started a journey to good health at the end of March and that has been my focus. I joined my local YMCA and have been going 5 days a week for the past 6 months. I choose to workout 2-3 hours a day. It may sound excessive but for me that is what works. I have lost 60 lbs to date and over 30 inches! I am feeling better than I've felt in years!

It's time to get back to going to my stamp room and creating! Now that summer is over and the chilly weather is upon us and I'm not outside every afternoon, it's easier to stay inside and stamp! So, I have been creating and will be sharing what I've made with all of you. Be sure to check back to see what I've done. Now, it may not be every day that I post but I promise I will post often!

This card I'm sharing today was a swap that I made for a recent Stampin' Up! Regional event I attended in Baltimore last weekend. It was so much fun and I was thrilled they had the event so close to home. At these events we get new ideas, learn new techniques, get great business ideas and share with other demonstrators. I made 40 swap cards which meant I received 40 swaps back with wonderful ideas to use!

The stamp set I used comes from the Holiday Mini Catalog which you can access on the right side of my blog. It's a beautiful set and I'll be sharing another card or two that I made using it. Enjoy the sample for today!
