Congrats-You Deserve It!

I can't believe that today is the last day of 2012.  The year has had it's ups and downs and it's crazy how quick it has flown by.

Are you one that sets a New Year's Resolution?  

I have to admit that some years I do have one, some times I don't.  This year...I started my resolution before the New Year and that is my quest to lose some weight.  I began Body by Vi 30 days ago.  I won't lie to you, it hasn't been easy.  But when, after a week of being on it I had lost 12 lbs. I was feeling good.  I could feel my energy level increase and then BAM!!!  The holidays happened. I haven't stepped on the scale (at the time of writing this), so not sure how I've been impacted since there were about 4 days where I skipped my shakes.  I could tell the difference in my energy though and I'm not sure if it was all because I wasn't drinking my shakes or the fact that I was on vacation and not running the kids around all the time.

But, being the New Year is around the corner, I'll be back on my quest to lose 25 lbs. in my 90 days.

As far as my card...another favorite of mine.  I love these colors together, I had bought this die after seeing it used so many times...and I've used it a lot.  

So, hoping that this card will be my pat on the back when I'm losing all that weight.

Supplies Used:
Stamps: Treasured Words from Verve Stamps
Cardstock: Baja Breeze and Real Red from Stampin' Up!; Patterned Paper: Authentique Fresh Collection
Inks: Color Box for Stephanie Barnard-Strawberry
Embellishments: Botanical Beauty Die-Namics from My Favorite Things, Dimensionals and Basic Pearls from Stampin' Up!

Beautiful card. Hope you do well on losing weight. It's my goal, too. 3 pounds a month and in a year I'll have off what I want. Let's encourage each other.
