Happy card for a thank you

There was a Gina K sketch for her release party that inspired this card. It was a good way to use this happy Target dollar paper and coordinating piece of chip board. It also was a good excuse to make a happy thank you note, and use my Gina K stamps.

It is a pretty simple card with a couple of layers, a little coloring with markers, and some stickles on the flowers. I ended up distressing the paper. I probably would have skipped that, but my cutter blade is dull and I was not happy with the crispness of the edges at first. I needed to even it up.




I hope you like it!

I am back on my exercise program. I managed to get two good workouts in last week and one minor workout moving a friends plants inside. Yesterday was a little more than I wanted. A friend of mine and I took Delilah for a walk on some local trails. We must have taken a wrong turn because our little 45 minute walk ended up being a 2.5 hour trek. The good news is I am not too sore today. The better news is that it takes my miles walked for the year total up to 10 miles. I am rewarding myself at 100. Stay tuned for the progress.
