sending joy

First off...thank you for all the good wishes on my workout. I actually did fairly well and burned a ton of calories (I wear a heart rate monitor that counts them for me). I definitely will be doing it again and again so that I can learn it all!

Soo...what do you think of Lattebella? Personally, I love this card. I love the old, comfy feel of the designer paper. The vanilla paper gives it a nice soft look. This is all made (minus the sentiment which is PTI) from the July 3 Little DReaMs kit. I forgot to order mine and when Katie asked me if I had...I freaked! Oh, my...please tell me you have more as I really wanted Lattebella. Anyway, aren't the papers and colors lovely? Katie did a great job of picking them out! I used my COPICs to color her and used a little bit of glaze pen on the scarf and coffee cup. Can you believe that there is no glitter on her? Crazy I know! I think the doodling gives it just the right look. Although I don't think you can see it I did sponge just a little Sweet Blush from PTI on the edges of the image.

I got an award from Sarah over at Scrampin' Mama! The rules for this are simple.

1. Only 5 people are to be nominated. (Yikes!)
2. 4 out of 5 have to be dedicated followers of your blog.
3. 1 has to be new or recently new to your blog or live in another country.
4. You must link back to whomever gave you the award.

With all those rules in mind I pass this award onto:

Courtney at Created by Courtney
Dani at Dani Gets Crafty
Katie at {Just Me}
Diane at ddnjoys2stamp
Missy at Missy's Creative Corner is my new comer.

If you look back at my comments you can find that the first four girls comment almost every single time and are so sweet and supportive off the blog too. Missy is new visiting my blog and is very kind too! Thank you so much Sarah! Your support and friendship means a lot to me!

Now for some miscellaneous things...Don't forget about my Thoughtful Thursday challenge to you all. You can check it out HERE. Oh, and I tried a new sandwich yesterday so if you like ham, mustard, and cheese all together and then made kinda like french toast check it out HERE. Don't forget Sarah's fun blog candy HERE. Lollipop

Alright, girls! If you made it this far...thank you! I am finally done typing at you. Can you just imagine what I'm like in real life? Yep, I talk...a lot!
