Call me Brittany 'cause OOPS, I did it again :) I forgot to post my weight yesterday. I actually didn't have a loss this week but I didn't gain either which is fine with me! I didn't have a "bad" week per se but I had several days where I really felt hungary. Plus with it being Valetine's Day and all, I went out to dinner with my hubby and quite enjoyed my meal. I got Chicken Pomodoro which was this twirly pasta with a white wine type sauce, sundried tomatoes, spinach, feta cheese and olives. It was soooo delicious. The next time I want to blow my points, I know what I'm having!!! hehe I am back on track and hoping for a good week next week to make up for it. Let's hope for for the best!!!

Wow, I totally spaced posting my weight loss yesterday. I thought of it in the morning but got busy and then headed out for a bit. At any rate, I lost another 2.5 pounds this week bringing my total to 14.5 and I'm down to 178. I'm almost halfway to my goal which was to weigh what I did when I met my husband. That magic number is 160.5 which was a size 8 to me... gotta love stretch denim! LOL and then only another 10 pounds or so to lose from there. WOOO HOOO, give me a cookie! HAHA

Oh my god, can I just say how adorable this stamp set is??? It is called Sweet Chocolate by My Cute Stamps. I had never even heard of the company until I was browsing some cards on SCS and saw a card done with a different stamp set so I went off to check it out. Of course I bought 2 sets, this one and one other with the cutest owl, birdies and branch I've seen yet!!! They don't have a ton of sets but if you're like me, you'll want them all. Anyways, back to my card! I used the chocolate dipped strawberry from the set and embossed it with chocolate scented embossing powder. MMMMM, chocolate!!! The sentiment is from a $1 set I found at AC Moore over my weekend travels. I think the background paper is MM (bought it last year) and the little gems I found at Target in the $1 section (though they were more than $1). I have a couple of girlfriends who I'm thinking of sending this card to so let's see who the lucky one will be!!! Or maybe I'll just make a couple more! hehe
I just loved the black and white word printed paper for this card because it reminded me of newspaper, not that I ever read one! I liked the concept though... morning coffee and the paper :) I used some more of those great little hearts by K & Co. throughout the steam to make it Valentine-ish along with the splash of hot pink. I used the MS mini heart border punch which I was extremely lucky to find at Michael's last weekend. I found the punch, lost the baby's hat. Oops! LOL I still feel like something is missing from the corners of this card but I tried punching photo corners, didn't like it. Tried stamping hearts, didn't like it. Tried adding the little hearts like are in the steam, didn't like that. SOOO it is what it is! Hope you like it anyway!!!
I got some time to play earlier this week (it's a miracle!) so I made this card using the bird from the Stampin' Up set, Everything. I added a little bit of Liquid Pearls to the branches so it looked like berries. I put some sparkle in the bird's eye with a tiny little rhinestone and gave him a heart (K & Co.). I was pretty happy that this card came along as quickly as it did and that I didn't use all of the same background paper which is typical for me. I'm improving!!! hehe

Ok, so I thought I was going to be like Joelle from the Biggest Loser and lose ZERO pounds this week, however, I lost 1.5. Phew! I was within my points and everything but I was just not feeling like it was a good week. Thankfully, I'm still on track and have now lost 12 pounds in 4 weeks. YAY!!!
