Hello Morning Post


HI friends!  At least once a week I cruise through my favorite sketch challenges and if there's enough time to enter it I get right to it.  This one is no exception… I immediately knew I loved it the moment I saw it!  It it quick & easy and I absolutely love the clean and simple layout.

Sketch Challenge

A last minute entry into the Freshly Made Sketches #104 Sketch Challenge.  I decided at the last minute to enter this challenge because the clean & simple look to this card.  I love these layouts.


I love the Crushed Curry ink letters against the Tempting Turquoise card stock.  They really just pop right at you don't you think?  Do you make cards for friends/family just to say hi?

I accomplished two things this last week:  1)  I passed my annual fitness test with a score of 98.3/100%.  Last year I received a 97.4%, so I guess you can say I've improved.  I shaved a whole minute off my run… LoL.  My goal is still to score 100% before retirement… and I'm not competitive… LoL.  It's just a personal goal.

2)  I ran the Air Force Marathon (10K) in one hour and 7 seconds!  Yippee!  I've ran 5K's in the past, but I took the leap and made it the 10K.  I was told I'm an official runner!  I seriously HATE running, but I had so much fun doing it.  My secret is that I didn't run for time… but for pleasure.  I set my own pace and didn't slow down and only sped up during the time I actually experienced a runner's high…LOL.  I think I was strung by the run bug… LoL

Thank you so much for following My Paper Journey with me.  Have you visited me on my Facebook page?

  1. I had no idea that Crushed Curry and Tempting Turquoise looked so well together! Love the big and bold sentiment! Thanks for joining us at Freshly Made Sketches!

  2. Congrats on accomplishing your first 10K run. I just knew you would have no problems.

    Your card is stunning. The crushed curry really is striking against the Turquoise. I do love that Morning Post set. I haven’t tried letters yet either. Maybe I will make that a goal to try. And, of course, Venetian Romance is one of my very Fave’s and pearl’s always seem to go so well with it. Thanks for sharing Maggie. BIG blessings to you!
