TSSC162 for the Troops

Today's cards are modeled after the Techno Stamper Lunchtime Sketch, TSSC162. I am making a bunch of cards to send to OWH for the troops, and am trying to use up my supplies in the process! This batch uses a few sheets of Pretty In Pink cs, almost the last of my Marigold Morning cs (how many of you remember that color?), and some DCWV Spring Stack patterned paper. I swear, those stacks NEVER end!

The stamps are from Hero Arts - my mom picked them up at a crafty yard sale for me and I always forget about them. However, this week Carter emptied the basket that has all my loose stamps, so I was reacquainted with this cute set. They are colored with SU! markers and a few of the vases are paper pieced. The sentiments are CHF. The twill ribbon and brads (I never use gold ones, but like them here) are from the stash.

I will post more cards this week, I promise! DH has been out of town more than in and when the kids go to bed, I just collapse in front of the tv. The good news this week is that I had a weigh-in at the gym. In the last 5 weeks, I have lost 6 pounds and reduced my body fat percentage from 25.8 to 17.4. I am VERY excited to be in shape by this summer! There's still work to be done, and this weekend I am hungry, but I'm motivated to keep it up.

I hope you are having a good weekend. Thanks for looking! Here is a list of the other cards entered for the sketch:
