Excuse me while I pat myself on the back....

I signed up for the Victoria GoodLife Fitness 1/2 Marathon today. Yup. I considered signing myself up for the full marathon...but I just don't think I have it in me quite yet. Maybe next year when I turn 40 and feel like I need to prove something to myself LOL.

On to a card....

Here's a card I made a while ago...totally copied or "cased" someone's card, and I'm sorry I have no idea whose right now..FOUND IT..Thank you Sherri Barron...I loved this card :)

I didn't have all the exact things that she did so I improvised and used what I had on hand. For the most part I don't mind it..but I used Crumb cake for the antiquing, and I think it has just made it look dirty instead LOL

Rich Razzelberry :)

Made this card last night..not sure I'm totally happy with the background of the cupcake...I need to get more punches!

Any advice on how to take better pictures of the cards?

Today I raced home from work (traffic worked in my favour for once!), changed and managed to meet up with my running crew.

I haven't really been running regularly since I ran the 1/2 marathon in October and the longer I went without running the harder it was to get out and go. I knew I would be struggling, and I didn't want to keep them ruin their run. I can always think of a gazillion reasons not to run some days... the last few months my "crew" have been sick, and or on this past Saturday I bit the bullet and met up with them. Figuring we would all be starting a little behind. It was a great way to start my day...and my was my birthday :) We ran 10k and I made it....maybe not in record time..but I made it.

Today's run was one of my favourite routes. It's SUPER hilly, but on a quiet country's beautiful. The best part of the run is I feel like a MILLION bucks when I'm finished!

So right now..besides being tired...I feel like a million bucks :)
