I have been to a few new classes this week in an attempt to improve my fitness and maybe re-new my enthusiasm for running which has wilted a little lately. So last week I did Running, Zumba (twice), Zumba toning (twice), Body Combat (twice - love it!!) and Pilates just the once (thank goodness as I haven't been able to move since!!) Oh and I delivered 300 SW leaflets around the estate too. This is all without my usual horsey activities so I guess now I know why I am pooped!
Saying that it all obviously gave me an energy boost at the time as I cleaned every cupboard in the kitchen out and did all the ironing (doesn't happen often!).
In amongst that I have also managed to create a few cards, so all in all a very productive week. The only card I didn't manage to get done during the week was my FIL's Fathers Day card which I have made today. However it didn't go very easily and has taken me hours. I wonder why some cards are just like that? I even managed to break the printer trying to print my sentiment and crashed the computer too lol. Poor hubby told me to 'step away' from all things technical and not move!
Anyway I did eventually manage it and here it is:
The image is a stamp by Sheena Douglass which I then coloured with a watercolour brush and distress inks. I am a dreadful artist so I have to say this was not easy! I don't think it looks too bad...from a good distance so hopefully the FIL will stand it well away from everyone lol.
I used Kardstock for the frame of the image and the border at the bottom of the card, hence I am entering it into this week's MAWTT challenge - Let's get Krafty!
Love to Create - Something recycled, Ends: 18th June (I used an old envelope for the Kardstock)
