The Greeting Farm Grace and Friday Sketchers 65

Hi Friends!! I finally found time to play in a challenge! Yay! I decided to participate in the Friday Sketchers challenge. The sketch was a fun sketch with lots of layers. The sketch is a bit more busy than I normally have my cards but I like it. I think all the layers is a great opportunity to use your scrap designer papers and card stock.

I decided to use the Greeting Farm Hope and Grace stamp set. . .I think this girl is Grace. I had colored this image a while ago. . it was actually one of my reject images that I colored. There was something I didn't like about my coloring because it was in my reject pile but I'm really not sure why. . .I think it's because I forgot to add highlights.

Anyway. . .all the designer papers on this card are from my scrap pile! No new paper was cut. . .whoohoo!

Today is my day off! Yipee! My goal today is to start on an exercise regimen. . .I bought 2 dance exercise DVD. . salsa and hip-hop! How fun! LOL! Well, we'll see how fun they'll be once I try them out. . .it may not be so fun!

I really need to get my fitness level up. I have 3 months before our trip to Europe and I am so afraid that I won't be able to keep up with all the walking and activities. The last thing I want is to be sitting on the sidelines while everyone is walking around and enjoying the sites. I heard that on some days, the tour will require 10 miles of walking a day. Ugggh! Can you imagine? Mainly because many of the sites will require walking long distance to get to. Gosh, I'm a little worried about it. LOL! No, really I am.

Anyway, I'll let you know how it goes. If you don't hear from me for several days. . .it wasn't good. LOL! Wish me luck, friends! I really need to succeed.

Hope you all have a wonderful Wednesday!

I should challenge myself with using only scraps so that I can get my pile down! well, good-luck with your exercise! I find that playing soccer keeps me fit...if not I'd be as big as a whale! lol!
