I made thank you cards for our purple team coaches. If you like to ride your bike or love someone who does, then the Bike Ride stamp set from Stampin’ Up! is for you!
At our banquet on Monday, I was surprised to find out I was the third place “Biggest Loser” out of approx. 50 Pedal Off the Pounds participants based on percentage of weight lost.
Yep, me and four guys were the top 5! The winner was Joe, also on my Purple team. He lost 5% more than me. He’s second from the right. I’m proud of you Joe! Joe won the bike. I won a bag and a gift card to my favorite bike shop. I already bought myself some really nice gel bike gloves.
Here I am counting the beads for our Purple team. Superman is with me being supportive!
Here’s my Purple team and our coaches. We actually lost the largest percentage weight as a team! This is a very fun, caring, awesome group of people!
This card is for Amy. She rides a bright purple and Lemon Lime Twist bike. (She doesn’t actually know it’s Lemon Lime Twist, but it is. 🙂 She calls her bike “Joker”. In fact she encouraged us all to name our bikes. My bike is still called “bike.” I’ll let you know if that changes. I used the embossing paste with one drop of Smoky Slate reinker and tried to make an artsy brick wall. This is the first time I’ve tried the new embossing paste and I loved it! It was much easier and less messy than I thought it would be. I also used my aqua painter to add some Smoky Slate to “ground” the bike, so it wouldn’t be floating in the air.
This is Erin’s bike. She rides a black bike with orange accessories. She’s an accountant so I knew she’s want her brick wall to be more “perfect” or accountant like. (I can say that because I’m an accountant as well. I have trouble making things off center or more artsy.)
Anyway my two coaches were awesome and I’m applying to be a coach next summer. I still have about 50 more pounds to lose.
I’m getting ready for the new Bible Study Fellowship (BSF) year to begin. The mission of Bible Study Fellowship is global, in-depth Bible classes producing passionate commitment to Christ, His Word and His Church. Our vision is to magnify God and mature His people as they cultivate a deeper relationship with Him. I’ve been studying with BSF for fifteen years. I’ve learned so much, but still have a lot more to learn. I’m a group leader for 17 women. Here’s the name tags I’m making for this year. I hope they like them.
