Halloween Tiddly Witch*

Good morning! I'm back at work in the office today. It was a rainy ride... I had to fight with myself this morning making myself go up and work out. But I did.. and I feel better for it!!  Now to push ahead with the day!! I hope you all have a wonderful day and rest of your week ahead!!

Oh... I think this whole thing with the going to the psychiatrist is just in my head.Can't stop thinking about everything. I think its getting a bit down. I need to stop!  Nothing to stress about.  Ughhhh!! I keep telling myself I will not get on the scale. So tonight when I get home and take a shower I will NOT get on the scale. It doesn't matter what it says... I'm going to have to repeat that all day LOL. I can do this! And I have got to stop comparing myself to others. How in the world do I do that! And why such the need to be one of the best, the one at the top? I hate that about myself. I can be a bit overboard on the competativeness sometimes. But then... that is not what I teach my kids. I teach them to be competative, but not overboard.  I guess we all have some issues, don't we? Bariatric Surgery is a great tool... and I have been able to come so far with it. But it seems like that addictive personality has latched on to the scales and maybe that need to not fail....  be able to lose as much as everyone else. Yep... I'm a bit crazy!! LOL  I already knew that though!

Here is a Halloween CAS Card from me:







For this creation I've used Alison The Witch from Tiddly Inks. I've colored her up with Copic Markers. No layering! I know.. shocking!! LOL  I added a border punch at the top, some ribbon and that raven charm. I stamped Happy Halloween and that is it! Really different for me to do a CAS! But for once I actually like this one!!I think she turned out okay.

Copic Markers Used:
  • Hat: E57, E47, E49; C5, C7, C9
  • Hair: B23, C5, C7, C9, 100
  • Skin: E000, E00, E01, E11, E13, R20
  • Dress: V12, V15, V17
  • Raven: W5, W7, W9
  • Ground: E30, E33, E35, E37

Susan, I think it's going to take a while for you not to be so competitive with yourself, it took me ages. The funny thing is all Susan's that I know including myself have this competitive streak, I have worked hard to get rid off it and it has taken years for me to be more chilled about everything, I find that I achieve a lot more by being more relaxed, anyway just thought I would share that, good luck with everything, us Susan's will get there in the end.

I absolutely love this card, the image is so beautifully coloured in and stands out on the white background, I love the other little details as well. Thanks so much for sharing your card at Anything goes, Just keep on creating

Hi Susan,
I think you are so brave to have had bariatric surgery and well done on the weight loss. It is so hard, I got sent to Slimming World by my doctor, I went reluctantly and didn't expect much but I lost 2.5 stones, although I put on 1 stone with all the problems going on in my life the last two years and I am trying to get back to the 2.5 stone mark and then go further, at least the same again is needed to be healthy. The thing is that everyone loses weight differently, we cannot all be the same, a loss is to be celebrated and if you put a little on you can lose it again next week. I now only get on the scales at group. Slimming World is a healthy eating plan, nothing is forbidden, and you can eat loads of the healthy food - some people don't eat enough and when they increase it they lose the weight!

I've been doing this 3 years now, I feel I should have lost a lot more but I know it is down to me - if I cheat on the plan it is me I am cheating, I only have myself to blame, and there is great support at group from the others and the consultant.
I will keep going, as I am sure you will - we can do it!

Love the card by the way, thanks for entering at Quirky.
