~some bunny loves you~

Happy Thursday and thanks for taking the time to visit the Charmed Life Blog. Well the weight loss challenge at my gym is over and winners announced. I came in 3rd place with a 15% weight loss. I won a month of working with a trainer.
I was disappointed at first then I had to give myself a "talking to". I have lost 22 lbs. -I feel good and I am eating healthy. The competition was the push I needed to do what I have wanted to do for over a year. It's so easy to fall into unhealthy eating habits and then start adding weight. Since I am only 5 ft. 3", a 20 lb. weight gain is big for me. And that works the same in reverse. A 20 lb. loss is really visible on me.
So now my focus is to keep eating healthy, keep going to the gym, and keep the weight off.  The 5 member team that I was a part of during the competition has decided to keep exercising together. I like the idea because it will give me the incentive I need to get to the gym .
Now onto my card for today. This one I made for the Splitcoaststampers color challenge. Becky is our hostess and she chose the color trio of old olive, night of navy and bermuda bay.
I just bought these Impression Obsession "bunny" dies and the Memory Box "massa leaf" die and decided to make an Easter card. I saw this framed Easter bunnies card on the KittieKraft BlogSpot and used her tutorial to make my card.
I sponged the background with Ranger peacock feathers ink to create the sunrays. Added grass cut with an MFT die and wildflowers cut with a Memory Box die.
Used a punch for the eggs that are in the grass. The navy frame is cut with a Spellbinders die. My sentiment is from Great Impressions Stamps.
Well that's it for me for today. So until next time........God bless.
