Just a Note to Say...


Oh how I love flowers, so when I see a new floral set, I'm always checking it out.  So...click add to cart on the new Reverse Confetti set and it quickly saw ink from me.  Florals and sentiment stamps are a definite go to in my stash.  Funny thing is though that I rarely have flowers at my house because I don't water them enough to keep them alive!

So...my card today is for two fabulous challenges.  ColourQ where I never play often enough despite loving the color combos and One-Layer Simplicity Challenge:  Floral Cards.  I think I'll be playing along with this one fairly often this month.

Before I go, I wanted to share two pictures of Ryan and me from yesterday. We ran the last two legs of the Flying Pig Marathon in Cincinnati. Ryan ran 7.5 miles and I ran 6.5.  The weather was absolutely perfect. I was very pleased with my finish time - averaging 9 minutes 32 seconds per mile.  Not bad for a 43 year old!

Here's our pre-race selfie at 5:45 am...

And our post race picture...our team finished in 4 hours 2 minutes.

I hope your week gets off to a fabulous start.

  1. Wow Lynn, you look good after completing the race!
    I started exercising again, 3 weeks ago (gym) and it feels good. After my neck surgery a year+ ago, I had to be so careful with what I do...
    Your card is so beautiful. Wish I had your stamping skills!
    Have a great week!

  17. I can't believe how good you look after running 6.5 miles. I also can't believe you put lipstick on at 5.45am before going running! If I did that, I'd have a lipstick smear mixed with my sweat on my already red face about five seconds into the race, lol! You put me to shame in the fitness stakes, I'm only a year older than you. ;-) Love your card, too, Lynn! :-)

  18. Woohoo! You go, girl! I so need to get back on my feet after baby. I'm just soooooo tired. And I love the way you've framed that sentiment here! FUN!

  19. Fabulous race photos and great times, too. I have been working out a lot, but think I could only barely run a mile. Your card is lovely, and I am chuckling because I am the same way with flower stamps and real flowers. I have plants and flowers all over my house, and they are all fake. And, I seem to want to own every flower stamp set on the market.
