Hello! Today I have a card to show you that I made for the son of a friend that is serving in Afghanistan. I am putting together a card package for him and wanted to be sure to include a card for him letting him know that he is being thought of and prayed for and to thank him for what he is doing. I pulled out this image from S2G and colored it with Copic markers. I love this image and think it is perfect for lots of occasions to mark something important for a military person. I have had the paper and those jumbo eyelets for a while and don't remember where I picked them up at.
I am back from my mini vacation, rested and ready to play in my craft room. We were in Indiana last week and of course you know I had to stop by my favorite store in the world, Papertrix. That is one store that when I go in I just want one of everything! If you are ever close to Nashville, Indiana you have to stop by there. Great selection and great people.
Thanks for all the encouraging remarks about my weight loss and the changes I have been making to become a healthier person. I feel great!! I don't really make New Year's resolutions but I do try and set a couple of goals of things that I would like to accomplish before the end of the year. One of the things that I have on my list is to participate in a 5K this year. My first 5K of the year (well, to be honest, of my life) is coming up this Saturday! This one was listed as a walk/run so I thought it would be a great one to start with. I am not quite able to run the full distance but since it is also a walk I know I can complete it. I don't have a time goal or anything, this time I just want to complete it. I know some of you read my other blog about my journey to getting healthy so you know the struggle concerning my back issues so you know what a big deal this is for me. I will post race day pictures!!
