Healthy, Wealthy and Wise - Opus Gluei # 55

The challenge at OPUS GLUEI this week is
.
HEALTHY, WEALTHY and WISE.
.
You know how the quote goes:
.
Early to bed, early to rise,
Makes a man
HEALTHY, WEALTHY and WISE.
.
Well, I DON'T get to bed early.
I DO rise early on work days.
And I am NOT a man.
.
.
So I decided to take each word by itself. Mostly because I couldn't think of ONE project to encompass all three words. Yup, some weeks are like that for me. And this was one of them. Anyway, here they are:
.
***
.
HEALTHY for me includes mental health.
And that involves laughing and playing:
.

(Cardstock and ribbon is Stampin' Up, paper is Imaginisque, Stamp is HERO ART courtesy of Jingle - Thanks Jingle, Border punch is Fiskars)
I used ZIG markers on the stamp.
.
***
.
WEALTHY is not necessarily measured in money for me.
I feel so blessed to have a wealth of information, real and imaginary, because of reading. And my love of reading came from my mother. So I made her a bookmark:
.
(Cardstock is white and unknown, Flores Suaves and Well Scripted stamp sets - Stampin' Up, Ribbon -Making memories)
.
***
.
WISE came to me only because I have this stamp set. I honestly didn't have anything in mind. I was looking through my stamp sets, say this and well, here it is:
.
(White cardstock is unknown, papers are printed from Gina's "Of the Water" digi set, stamps are Stampin' Up, ribbon is from my stash, Zig Markers on the bird/bamboo stamp, Memento Ink in Tuxedo Black on the quote)
.
There might just be a secret giveaway this week to one (or more) of the Opus Gluei players.
I can't say for sure, cuz that wouldn't be fun.
But, (wink, wink) you might want to play...
.
Just sayin'.

Hey Jana...... I just love the wise card...... the background paper is fabulous, and the colours are s-m-o-o-t-h. Who could be wiser than Confucious (did I spell that properly??)??
