Just Because Card - Blue Tone on Tone Flowers

Here is a very simple and pretty card that I made using my favorite Hero Arts stamp and some clear sparkly embossing powder for a tone on tone look. I kept the design simple and just accented with some bling. I chose to put my sentiment on the inside and also embossed that for the same look as the front. I love the way this card turned out.

Also don't forget your last few days to enter this month's challenges!!! The next batch will post on August 1st and so far from the looks of the projects you DO NOT want to miss them.

Also I have fun posts planned all this week, I finally got my crafting mojo back, at least for now :).

I have been working hard at getting even healthier since my surgery and so I have been walking 5 nights a week and eating very healthy, but the walks are leaving my muscles sore until I get my stamina back, so I think that soreness sort of zaps my creative energy. I got 12 hours of sleep last night though and then spent 8 hours in my craft room today. Thanks for bearing with me as I adjust to this walking and all!

I don't exactly love to exercise or walk but I invested in some custom orthotics and good sneakers and now it is at least not painful in the wrong sort of way. I can finally walk for exercise, and what I do love is that I don't get sick or nauseated or gasping to breath or dizzy or any of that anymore since my surgery to stop my acid reflux...so I am loving that I can do everything now like a normal person!

I've been trying to eat healthy and exercise too so I know what you mean about it taking time to have enough energy for everything in your life.
Have a great day...
