Craft Dash 17!!

It's SPRING!!  And I don't know about you, but in my family, that means a WHOLE LOT OF EVERYTHING going on right now! lol.  We've got birthdays, Communions, Baptisms, Showers, Weddings, Anniversaries!  WOW!  So, needless to say, I've been busy making cards!  I haven't photographed all of them, because I run out of time :( ) but I have gotten a few, so I'll have some new things to share here soon!

BUT -- today I am here, playing along with the Craft Dash Challenge again!  Paulina comes up with some fun challenges, and I REALLLLLY want to get playing consistently.  This week's challenge is below:

Here's my take on the challenge:

One less birthday card to make for the weekend, WOOHOO! lol.  

Of course, let us not long did this take me???  Wellllll.....


Speaking of making it...I've just started on a self improvement I may post about here from time to time.  I've decided it's time to take my body back after not taking care of it pretty much since I became a mom.  I signed up for some fitness classes at the martial arts school where my children take class, figuring there's total accountability...I'm Irish, so I'm naturally guilty, lol.  I took my first two classes this past Friday, and it was INTENSE for someone as out of shape as I am -- BUT -- I made it through the first class (hour of upper body) and made it part of the way through the second (hour of lower body).  I made it farther than I expected, truthfully, but am glad to get going.  My muscles are still sore today, though I can finally walk down a set of stairs without wanting to cry ;).  I go back this Friday for more, and I'll update more on where I go from there :).  

Thanks for popping by!  Have a great week!!

This looks GREAT! I love it! You did such a great job with your stamping, and the sequins are the perfect accents.

Congratulations on your new venture into fitness! I took on a similar journey last year, and while I could be doing better with weight loss (I love food too much!!), I am in the best shape I've ever been, and now I can't imagine not taking my classes. It takes awhile for it to feel like part of your life, but once it does become part of your routine, and you see the results, you'll be so happy you started! Good luck!

I LOVE this card to pieces! All of those starts and the sequins mixed in are so fabulous! I sure do hope you'll be able to participate regularly- your cards are so cute!

Thanks so much for playing along in this 10 Minute Craft Dash, Tracey!

Way to go on getting on a healthy track. I did this a few years back and lost about 60 pounds. It's a ton of hard work and dedication, but it's so worth it!
