NEWEST CARDS... AND FINGERS CROSSED


These 4 I made yesterday/last night. Funky.

I have my fingers crossed about 'something' today....
My diet is going splendidly... even though the scales are refusing to shift at the moment! Bloody horrible things.. but the difference this time is that I am not getting all cross about the 'no loss' thing... it WILL happen... I just have to persevere.
And here's a Question: What do you call a 'hand brake' in your car when it's a pedal? My Highlander has a foot pedal that is the 'hand brake'... it's weird. But I love it.
ONWARD...
It's been a quiet morning.. I had to drive the kids to school today as it's raining.... quite a lot in fact. Lucky I got all the washing done yesterday!
I have an appointment at 1.30... might have some nice news after that.... feeling a bit nervous!
What have I been doing? Well.... I had an appointment to see the owner of an Art/Gift shop in Manukau Mall with a view to supplying them with my cards... and while they don't want the big ones... they have asked me to make them smaller gift cards.... I AM WRAPT! It may eventually pay for my hobby! Now I can make them and know they will not just be piling up in my drawer! lol
End of Day: dinner = done, relaxing in front of the TV = doing. Going to do nothing else all night.... nite nite!

  5. Hey Chris, those cards are totally awesome! Love the funky colors. And I love your attitude - keep it up.

    Believe it or not, before we had "hand brakes" or emergency brakes as we call them here in the States, they were on foot pedals to the left of the gas pedal. How things change!

    XOXO,

  6. I think it the emergency brake also. Your cards are great and so is your attitude about the eating. The scale will kick in for you.
