Do More of What Makes You Happy

Well, yesterday I reported that it was a dull and dreary day – today is the same but add in cold rain and fog. If you are a regular reader you would know that my brain disorders do not like abrupt changes of temperature or a quick fall of the barometric pressure so I haven’t been to Aqua Fit for two days. Yesterday was a quilting day but I really wanted some exercise today. I decided I was having much less pain by 10:00 so I thought I’d go at 11:00 instead of 8:30 – didn’t happen. Joe (the worry-wort) assured me the weather report from the radio said it was going to quit raining by noon so we could go for a nice long walk in the afternoon. Besides that, the car was blocked in by the guy fixing the furnace (bearings went on the motor - $$ouch) and he had already moved his van once to let my friend leave that had stopped in so not nice to ask him to move it again. Well, once again the weather report was wrong. It never did stop raining but our local scrapbook store had called to say my order was in so we down there and to the library and walked to the mall, and around the mall which doesn’t take long – small mall) so we got a bit of exercise in but not much. Maybe tomorrow I’ll go to “Y”. Although they are now calling for snow. I hate winter. I really do.

But, its another Friday so that means it’s another Bellariffic Challenge card. This week she posted a wreath with lots of colours on it and said to make a card from anything in the picture or pull colours from the picture. I had just the image stamped and already coloured that met the requirements.  
 

This is one of the new stamps she just released awhile back. I love it.  I’ve stamped it several times already and coloured it in different colours. In her sample, the scooter rider is riding straight but I like it on an angle and Stamping Bella made a comment that she liked the way I stamped it too so that was cool. This one picks up the purple and green from her picture. It is coloured with Prismacolor pencils and gamsol. The sentiment is from another one of her new stamps but I think it does better with this image so that’s where I use it.   

I think I’ll go take a peek at what I bought at the Paper Pickle. I had ordered the Sizzix/Tim Holtz gear die and embossing pack and they just came in. She was having a 50% off sale of Basic Grey products so a few of those jumped into my arms as I was walking by. Hey, it happens people!

That’s all for a Friday. Hope your weekend is a happy, healthy and creative one.
 
Cheers
