COF: Live life to the fullest!

 Hello again!
Today is the day the Crafters of Faith group post our cards
based on a scripture and a challenge.
One of my bestie's, Barb, is the hostess for this month's challenge.
She writes:

Challenge: It is about Living Life to the Fullest:  Please make a creation that expresses how you live your life to the fullest or illustrates something you plan or wish for in the future.
Scripture: Jeremiah 29:11 For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.

Oh, this topic had me pondering of which stamp to use!
Living life to the fullest to me is incorporating my love of family, friends ...
then there's is the all-fulfilling church,
and we, as a family, love to travel and vacation together.
But that's sort of a given (for me) ..
things that are naturally meant for me.

So to really step outside my comfort zone,
to be bold,
to take healthy risks,
to take chances
to LIVE ....

now that was my a-hah moment! 

 In the theme of living life to the fullest,
I have a personal mantra.

It always includes 3 things ...

I would tell my kids every single morning, without fail ...
1.  I love you
2.  Make today count
3. Be kind.  To someone.  Anyone.  Including yourself!
And I start repeating those words through-out my day,
whispered from my lips to my own ears ♥

Back to my card!

I absolutely LOVE the September Kit of the Month from Unity Stamp Co!
It's the September KOM 9-16 called Moments Between Moments.
I remembered
 that. one. little. sentiment 
from this kit and paired it with the camera girl stamp.
In fact, I loved it so much - I made 3 cards!
This is the first in the series -
 I'll show you the other 2 next week :)
This one is very simple, a CAS card, inside and out
but I was focusing mainly on the sentiment as the focal point.

The card group, if you are on Splitcoaststampers,
is open for anyone to join!
We make a card once a month and just generally chat in between the posting :)
We'd love to have you!

Thanks for stopping by!
Big hugs, bigger blessings ♥
