Embellish Challenge...take 2!

Embellish has an awesome challenge going on HERE sponsered by May Arts Ribbon :)

I was totally inspired by Betsy Veldman's card HERE where she paper pierced the flowers :)

I normally would not have done such a dark background, except the challenge demanded brown LOL!! Now I find it soo YUMMY....probably because it reminds me of one of my most favorite things in life...MILK AND DARK CHOCOLATE!!!! I was lucky enough to have some turquoise May Arts ribbon around, unfortunately that is the last of it :(

Stamps: PTI Background Basics- Petal Power, Blooming Button Bits, and Hero Arts CL351 Friends.
Ribbon: May Arts and Basic Grey
Paper: PTI
Buttons and twine: PTI
Have a wonderful day....I KNOW I will be eating some is good for you right?!?! AND I can blame Embellish and PTI!!! LOL!!!

Getting my "natural" Vit D!!!

Well the sun was FINALLY shinning today, so I decided to get myself out of the house. I just read an article on the importance of Vit D and it's prevention of MANY cancers, not to mention so many other diseases and conditions like osteoporosis. With just 15 minutes of sun on your hands and face, you are provided with more then enough of your daily requirement!! So, I got off of my butt, and made Roxy's day by asking her if she wanted to go for a walk on the Lake.....hubby usually takes her!

Roxy patiently waiting for me to get going...probably wondering why on earth I have the camera along for our walk!!

Our destination is the park, way in the distance! Usually a 30 minute 45 minute due to the fresh foot of snow!!! I might of bundled up a bit too much for this walk...I HATE being cold!! I even have snow-pants on...the forecast was calling for -20 degrees C, but I didn't check before I left! I think it must of been warmer for I began sweating in 5 minutes LOL!!

This dog is sometimes out and about when we go out on the lake....his owners are building a steel dock a few houses down....YES in the winter....its easier!!! Roxy and him have sooo much fun chasing one another and it really tires her out...which she needs...her breed is of herding nature, and boy can she run!! During the summer she almost get in a run a day between myself, hubby and daughter all being runners :) We don't run outside in the winter, just too dangerous!

Finally home...I wonder if this counts as my exercise for the day??I was suppose to run on the "dreadmill"!

Have a WONDERFUL active day!!
