~Get Well Soon~

Happy Saturday and thanks for taking the time to visit the Charmed Life Blog. Well today was my weigh-in day for the weight loss challenge at my gym.
I didn't get weighed last Saturday because I was in San Francisco. I have lost another 3 lbs. So far I have a 9% weight loss.
The challenge runs until the end of March and the top loser gets a years worth of time with one of the personal trainers. Everyone has the same chance because its based on percentage. I really want to win this because the prize is huge. And, workouts with a trainer really bring your body into shape faster.
Anyway, I will keep the updates coming. Now lets move onto my card for today. I needed a get well card for a friend who just had a hip replacement. I used the layout from the Splitcoaststampers sketch challenge #478. Cathy was the hostess and she provided a great layout to work into a card.
I found this designer paper in my stash from My Mind's Eye -it's their "bohemian" collection. I didn't want to cover up this beautiful paper so, I substituted butterflies for the circles in the sketch. The larger one is cut with a Spellbinders die and my smaller one is a Martha Stewart punch - then added some rhinestones. The smaller one I punched from the designer paper as well as the rich razzleberry cardstock.

My paper bow is made from the MFT blueprints 3 dies. It will be flat for mailing now.

 The "get well" sentiment is from Verve. It was a thank you for an order I placed.
Well, it's getting late and time to dim the lights in Charmed Life Land for another day. We move the clocks ahead tonight for daylights saving time. That means losing an hours sleep but when its light until 7:00 tomorrow night it will be good. Spring is coming!!!
So until next time.........God bless.
