So I used the Color Challenge on Splitcoaststampers yesterday to create this card. The colors this week are Whisper White, Pretty in Pink, and Soft Suede. The images are digital images from Fred, she Said called 'A Lovely Blossom and Butterfly'. I cut out and mounted up several of the flower images. I put Stickles and adhesive pearls on the butterfly and in the center of each flower. The cross is a charm I purchased at JoAnn's. I know it really doesn't matter now, but I really don't think running marathons is good for the body. I have heard so many times of this sort of thing happening to a marathon runner. Even the author of the book 'Running' died of a heart attack while running. If the heart is an engine, just like you can wear a car out by running it too much till it gets too many miles on it and dies, can't the same thing happen to a heart in a human body? I just think it stresses the heart too much. I mean, look at what those people look like after running a marathon!
And I've never heard of an ordinary person dropping dead of a heart attack at 42. So I say, walk, don't run. Or, at least, don't run marathons. 3 to 5 miles a couple times a week is enough. I guess I'll get off my soap box now. I know I'm very uneducated on this topic and probably don't know what I'm talking about. I'm only expressing my thoughts based on my own life experience. Have a good day! Amy
