CTS#186

Hi, everyone!!!!


It's been some time since I last posted!!!!   I've been very busy getting fit again and I've set myself the goal to walk at least 200 km (124.75 miles) during August!!!!  I've started on Monday the 1st and yesterday I've reached 203 km for the month!!!  With another week of the month left I should be able to reach 260km!!!!  Hubby and I have also started running again and we are following a lovely program to build our fitness gradually to hopefully be very fit again, soon!!!!  At this stage I'm hoping to do some half marathons again, next year, but there's still a lot of hard work to do before I will be ready for that!!!  After our run at 7 in the morning I do a 7.5 km (4.7 mile) walk and in the afternoons hubby and I do a 4.0 km (2.49 miles) walk!!!!!  And the wonderful bonus - I've lost more than 10 kgs (22 pounds) since 18 July when I started with all of this exercising - yeah!!!!  I've also been very busy getting all my stuff ready to hopefully be selected to have a craft stall, at a local church, over Christmas.  I have to submit photo's of all my products I would like to sell, by September, and then it's holding thumbs that they will like my stuff and allow me to have a stall!!!!  I think the Christmas Market at the church will be a much better option than the Farmers' Market I did last year!!!!



... on to cards and taking part in the CAS(E) this Sketch Challenge!!!!!  This is the sketch for the week:


and I had such fun creating this card:


Leaves dies from Cheery Lynn - cut from silver glitter paper and green cs.
Flowers hand punched.
Afrikaans sentiment saying: 'Congratulations'.


That will be it for now!!!!  Thanks for popping it - hope to see you again, soon!!!
