Hello! Happy Thursday! Don't forget to sign up for my blog candy at the top of my blog!
I just recieved my order from Firecracker Designs By Pamela. I love getting new stamps and had a hard time taking care of my other responsibilities and not playing first! :) Great service, prompt answers to questions and fast shipping...not to mention a great quality of stamps. I am thankful they are vendors of Technique Junkies!

This card features the stamp set So Far Away by Firecracker Designs By Pamela. I couldn't resist using the SEPIA Technique from the October/ November Technique Junkies Newsletter.
I think I may have mentioned that I have been making some life style changes - working on creating new healthier habits, avoiding junk food, exercising... I am REALLY focused on losing weight now and I feel so great! I have tons of energy. The past few years, I have been focusing on my problems and leaning on the LORD. I praise GOD that I am finally able to have a peaceful season (most days) and take care of myself. Wednesdays is my weigh in days and this week I lost 3.5 pounds for a total of being down 15.5 pounds! Yahoo! I will offer more BLOG CANDY for every 15 pound loss. I have 101 pounds to lose to get to my goal weight. I am focused and determined to do it. I have NOT had any bread, candy junk food, unhealthy carbohydrate in over three weeks - THAT is how focused I am! I will NOT eat anything unhealthy because I want to continue to feel great! You can tune in next week to see how much I lost! My first "big" goal will be achieved with a loss of 4.5 more pounds! So once I get that gone - I will have some Candy to giveaway!

Now on to my project...
