Sunny Days Are Here Again....

OMG! We have had sunshine for 2 days and the weatherman is promising ANOTHER day of sunshine! I am SOOOO excited! I have seriously had my fill of cold wet days, working out indoors.... all of it! The past few days have meant outdoor workouts, I'm training for another 1/2 marathon, this is huge for someone who hates treadmills! Have you ever seen the people who can do like these dances and stuff on treadmills? Not me! When I'm on one it's more like treadmill kill! LOL! Half the time I get into my music or my thoughts and lose speed and wind out flipping off of it somehow! Then again....I think it's probably entertaining for those around me! Treadmill comedian! LOL! The card I'm posting today is one that I made just because and thought I'd share with you all. Unfortunately life takes turns that you need these kind so the least we can do as papercrafters is, well pretty them up right?!



Well, what do you think? You can't really tell in that flower but I put a deep purple rhinestone that, of course, came from Target's $1 Vortex Spot that sucks me in every time! LOL! The DP is on that was actually strips of patterns that I liked at the time I bought it but since have decided I liked it better cut up! LOL! The base is SU cardstock, the green is The Paper Company, the flower is a "Prima" from one of their "Bitty Bags", I used two of my beloved SU punches here, the scalloped edge and the corner making punch (I love it so much I can't remember the name - shocker! LOL! It's 0500 what can I say?! LOL!), I also used an MS leaf punch. I colored the heart with my Copic markers and the edges are done with Tim Holtz distress ink (I caved and got one!) and the words are actually deep purple ink from SU - eggplant parmesan I think?! Well, okay maybe not parmesan but that's what I think whenever I see the name! LOL! Well, that's it for today! Tonight I'll be taking pictures of some other cards I've been working on. I have SO many done for my DT that I can't wait to share with you! I hope you come back to visit soon!!!

Until next time....

Beautiful card! I love how you used the photo corner punch. That is one of my favorite punches! I am rolling over here over your treadmill description. This is so me if I were brave enough to even get on one, but I figure I'd kill myself on the treadmill. Good luck with your training!

This is a pretty card. I like the combo of patterned paper, colors and scalloped border. The flower is a great accent.

I have a treadmill that I used to use every morning when I had it in the living room facing the tv. I could watch the Sex In The City that I had taped the previous night and before I knew it, 30 minutes had gone by. But when we got our new living room furniture, the treadmill got moved to the dining room (we never use that room so it's not that unusual to have it there). Now it faces a wall and I am aware of every step I take because I have no source of entertainment to keep my mind occupied. So it gets used less often. But now that nicer weather is here, I can walk outside again.
