Congratulations!


One of my co-workers is getting married in a few weeks.  I loved making this card for her.  It came together really quickly.  The panel pieces (with the exception of the ribbon) are from her actual invitation.  The font on the invitation is also eggplant.  I love when cards come together easily!  We'll be celebrating with her on Monday by throwing her an impromptu wedding shower!

I based the card on the current RetroSketch!

And here's my update on running this week. This week qualifies as a long week for a variety of reasons, but I stuck with my commitment of running.  Here's the recap

Sunday:  2.32 miles 12.02 min/mile
Monday 2.31 miles 11.27 min/mile
Tuesday 2.32 miles 10.25 min/mile
Thursday 2.31 miles 10.07 min/mile

I'm using the Map My Run app on my phone to track my mileage...have to say it is a great motivator.  Except Sunday I ran in the early evening after work/baseball.  I have been tired due to several long work days, but I certainly feel a ton better when I exercise.  I'm give another update next Friday!

Happy Friday my friends!
