*Double Challenges*

Good morning everyone... has everyone started to recover from their turkey comas?  We have enough left overs for one more day of sandwiches and then the turkey is done until next time.  I am one of those strange people who prefers turkey as left overs, in a wonderful toasted turkey sandwich.  I could care less if I get any fresh from the oven.

I was pleased to discover that I haven't gained the usual 5 pounds over the last few weeks... only up a half pound from where I was.  I can handle that.  My plan is to get to the gym in the new year once my company is all gone and to get back to making healthy food choices again.  I've gained some pounds over the last few years and I want to celebrate my 40th birthday as a slimmer, more healthy version of me!

I created this card earlier this week when Mom, Heather and I did some crafting.  It was sad for me to put away my Christmas papers and ribbons and stamps and get back to regular every day creating. (I really do love my Christmas craft stuff!).  I decided to follow the MojoMonday Sketch as well as a Splitcoast Colour Challenge.
