Party Time

Well, hello there!  I am excited that it is spring break time!  That means I get a lot more crafty time, and blog visiting time.  I have been kinda absent lately, concentrating on getting myself healthy again.  If you visit me often, you will remember me talking about my back problems.  I decided not to do anything crazy like, Cortizone shots into my nerves and all the other things that were tossed into the air.  About 2 months ago, I went to my Chiropractor and had an adjustment.  Instantly, I felt better and took that opportunity to get my butt back to the gym to lose the 30 lbs that I gained from all the oral steroids.  Being a Vegan, there wasn't anything diet wise that I could do to lose the weight.  Within the 2 months that I have been working out 5 days a week doing cardio and weights, I have dropped almost 20 lbs!  I can't be more excited!!  I have bigger goals than the 30 lbs, now I would be super happy to lose another 20 lbs more.  I am concentrating on strengthening my core and back muscles for better support and  I am pleased to say that I have not had my back hurt once since I have been working out!  Yeah me!  :)


 So, on to this DARLING little girl.  I ordered this Doodle Garden Party Time girl with my last MFT release purchase, along with these FABULOUS new Blueprint die-namics dies.  I can tell you this, if you are a beginning cardmaker or just short on time and need something quick, this is for you!  I LOVED how easy this card was to make using all the neat dies in the set, I can't wait for more of these to come out.  The possibilities are endless!


On day one of Teaser Time, they showed 4 possible layouts using the new Blueprint dies.  You can find them and more information HERE.  I used the sketch in the upper right hand corner.

Heather, the card is so cute. I really like all the different patterns you used on this card. I am so happy to hear you are feeling better and great that you have lost 30 pounds. I know that is a commitment to do that! I keep telling myself to get up and do it...I know I would feel so much better to get some weight off.

Glad you are feeling better, back injuries are definitely NO FUN. Isn't it amazing how much better we feel when we move?

What an adorable card! Love the colors you used! Congrats to you on the weight loss and the added benefits to your back! I have been struggling with back problems for over a year and been getting the steroid shots in my back, which has helped, but it is making me gain weight too! I am starting a back strengthening regimen to see if that will help. Wish me luck!

Hi Heather,
I just came across your blog and I love your card! I actually love all your creations! Thanks for sharing!

Donette Claar said...

This may be quite late, but I'm glad that your back got better. Until now, I'm still amaze on how a chiropractic care can give a good relief for all kinds of muscle pain. Whatever the explanation it is, I'm still glad this kind of treatment has been invented. Cheers! #Donette @ USHealthWorks.com/Sacramento-East-Center.html
