Ruffles

Good morning! Well, I did it! I ran that 5K and finished....yay! My time was 38:15 (VERRRY slow, just like I thought it'd be....and probably considered pretty pitiful to a "real" runner), but I did run most of the way. I only walked a total of four minutes of that. Anyway, maybe I'll try it again next month and see if I can run the whole way. Thanks to everyone who left comments to cheer me on...it means A LOT to me!



I made this card for today's Ruffles challenge on the MFT forum using my new Beach Bum set...so cute! The card is 5" square and all the DP is from my Thrift Shop paper pack. The shovel, main image, and sentiment are all up on foam tape. The yellow ruffled ribbon was secured to the back of the red mat with some Scor Pal tape.

Thanks for stopping by! Tomorrow I'll be headed to CHA to hang out with my friend, Lori. This will be my first CHA.....so excited!
