"For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the Lord. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts. For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater: So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it." ~ Isaiah 55: 8-11

GO GIRL! / FM #42 & CTD #199...


Just popping by with another card, this one I made for myself! Jeff and I are beginning a "lifestyle" change... I am giving up my coffee creamer (I love you and will sincerely miss you Italian Sweet Crème... maybe we can get together on the weekends for 'a' cup of coffee...) and I don't know what Jeff is giving up, but I am thrilled he's along for the ride. As I near my 40th birthday (December), I realize I need to change some things. Especially with my diet. And my amount of activity. And since Jeff and I have finally, definitely decided no more kids... it's time. Let's face it, making cards REALLY does not count as exercise after all! (Too bad, huh?)

I used this really cute set, Work It Out, by The Alley Way Stamps! I just may be making myself more cards with these adorable images to help keep me motivated!



My card today is based this week's Freshly Made Sketch and the Color Throwdown Challenge.


Have an awesome day!

You go girl! I pray God motivates you both and encourages you. I love your card. ;)

What do you mean card-making doesn't count as exercise! And here I thought I was getting quite the workout!

Seriously, good luck on your healthy journey. I'm a weight watchers girl and have been for more than 20 years. One thing I've learned over the years is that making a change to be more healthy and exercise more is a lifetime commitment. There are no temporary solutions and I wish you every success. Keep making adorable, motivating cards like this and you'll have no trouble at all!

So excited for you as you start this journey! Although, given the pacing I do as I ponder some cards it *might* count as exercise. I think that maybe you don't have to do that though. This card is fantastic as always! Glad you joined us this week at Freshly Made Sketches!

Girrrrrl.... we should talk. Have been on a very similar journey these last months. Just know that you are already fabulous! And, to be honest, my half and half is still around, it was one thing I WASN'T willing to sacrifice! Ha! ;)

Adorable card, I love the colors and the rounded corners. :)
