*Dots and Bugs*

I am pleased to say that I have made a recommittment to the gym. From the fall of 2005 until the spring of 2006, I was going to the gym three times a week without fail. Then the bottom fell out of my boat at the end of April last year when Dad died. I tried to keep up with the gym. The gym is always tough in the summer... and when fall came I just couldn't keep it up for more than a day or two.

I went back today (again) and have promised myself that I will be there again on Thursday morning. I am only doing 2 days a week right now because I am also taking Tae Kwon Do lessons with the boyz two nights a week and that's a pretty good workout in itself.

I will think positive and I will succeed....

Now, on to the pretty stuff LOL!

This is another card where I was inspired by the ribbon. I purchased this ribbon from Michael's last week. I just loved the colour combination and I seem to have a thing for dots.

I started with a Ballet Blue card and added a layer of Certainly Celery. I cut a piece of Whisper White and stamped it with two of the stamps from Big Pieces... one in Ballet Blue, the other in Certainly Celery. I then put it through my Cuttlebug with the Bloomin' Dots embossing folder. I cut the large flower out of Celery cardstock with my Cuttlebug and layered a piece of white on top, punched with my 1 1/4" circle punch, stamped with "hello" in Ballet Blue ink.

I wrapped the ribbon around the white and green layers and then attached it to my card front.

Nancy!! This is one of my favorite cards you have ever had on your blog! I absolutely love any shade of green and blue together. But now I hate you...not really. I was debating on whether or not to get the 'Big Pieces' set and had decide no...but now...!!

Gorgeous, Nancy! I love this design. I love the Big Pieces set. These are fun stamps to play with. You can get so many whimsical backgrounds from ones like these.

I got my new SU Spring Mini catty in the mail yesterday and they have a couple new sets out that I think will be equally fun to play with... 'Polka Dots & Paisley' and 'Polka Dots and Petals.'

Oohhhh, I'm so addicted! lol :)
