Chevron Gwen

Good Morning! 😀

I thinks its a pretty good day, 1 week into my diet and its going well, did 45 minutes on the treadmill this morning and it was great so feeling guuuuuud  :DD This plan is more substainable for me personally as I can eat with my family so it feels like less of a diet than making a change. Making a change can be tough too but when you know its so much for the better and you’re not doing it all alone its way more easier to do. So 5lbs down officially, have a lil water issues because of a visiting Aunt but we’ll see next week how its really panning out. By the beginning of April 2013 I will have lost ALL the weight I’m out to lose and that’s really a great motivator to just do it and get it done. Oh! And for this one, no driving 2 hours to get there multiple times a week and I can bring my son to appts if need be which I was not allowed to before. So sorry to sound mean but… suck it old place!

I do have this to share today lol! Before I go too far on diet tangent 🙂 This is Crushin Gwen, who might be my fav of the Gwens so far! I colored this one while at Denny’s with my girls at CHA but she hadn’t made it onto a card (yes, I suck sometimes lol). But I got the chevron punch from EK success and SO had to use it and went to town punching papers! It came out simple but I like it with the stripes. 

I might have gotten carried away with putting freckles on Gwen but I also might have been distracted by awesome conversation and cookie skillet :3 Sitting with friends coloring with Copics and eating a warm gooey chocolate cookie with vanilla ice cream is pretty much bliss in my book! So Leah, Carisa and Melissa, you all rock! rckhnds  Its a good thing I don’t think there is a Denny’s near the hotel in Chicago or we’d have to repeat lol. 

On this card the papers are AC’s latest Dear Lizzy Line, Gwen is Crushin Gwen and she was colored with Copics. I’m not exactly sure on the colors as I was a bit distracted 😉 I am linking this beauty to Paper Issue’s Show Me Your Chevron link up. Miss Cassie Box is where I buy almost all of my paper crafting goods as you know I have to support her, 1) She’s just plain awesome 2) She’s another Woman run Small Biz and 3) did I mention she’s awesome? She’s my paper addiction dealer lol Not to “sell” anything but if you do get sucked in to her shop and go to buy something, use the code ODDGIRL when you go to check out for 20% off your order 🙂 Does that make me the middle man dealer? Maybe… I can live with that lol.

Check you peeps tomorrow!
