Do Something Awesome!

We all face challenges everyday….whether if it’s a project at work, or trying to juggle too many things during the day, or a relationship struggle, there are challenges around every corner.  But this card I’m sharing today is more about challenging you to step out of your box and Do Something Awesome….Every. Single. Day.  Get out!  Explore!  See the World!  There are lots of exciting places to see and visit and experiences to….well….experience!


This is a bright card….but if you want to get someone’s attention to Do Something Awesome….well, this will do it!  This Pineapple Punch cardstock certainly delivers a punch of “Wow”!    The stamps I used for this card are part of the  En Route Stamp Set are obviously travel related,


And I didn’t use just one layer of Pineapple Punch, I used two!  The top layer is embossed with the Map’s Etc. Embossing Fiolder you see about.  You can see some of the details better in this picture:


You don’t have to take a train, plane or bus, you don’t even need to stray too far from home to do something awesome.   Take a walk around your neighborhood.  Visit a local museum.  Try a new restaurant.  Go on a picnic in the park….or at the beach….or don’t want to drag your kids anywhere?….picnic in your back yard.  Try out a new flavor at your favorite ice cream shop.
