I played in the Virtual Stamp Night challenges at Splitcoast this past Friday (it was a mini event with the main gig coming up on March 1st and 2nd! so clear your calendar!). I made 5 or 6 cards that I’ll share this week. This one in non-traditional Valentine colors was one of my favorites!
Bee Mine from Paper Smooches was perfect for the Feelin’ a Little Punny challenge. I paper pieced the Bee and eyes, added a small ticket strip and fishtail banner dies (MFT die-namics) with My Mind’s Eye paper. Easy.
In other news, I’m still running. Had a beautiful 34 degree run this morning with my running girls. We’ve been struggling with lots of extra cold temps, odd schedules & trips and high winds the last month, so this felt normal. content. wonderful.
This morning, I peeled my gloves and ear covering and unzipped my hoodie by the start of mile three, but that’s fine. People always say to dress in layers so you can peel off as needed, but last Friday (FOURTEEN degree Friday), was a different story. I wore this hoodie type thing that my husband got in his stocking, thinking I was pretty hot stuff for remembering that this hunting gadget might be good for keeping my head and neck warm while running in cold weather. Hot stuff, alright! I was way too hot, and along about mile two, I couldn’t get the thing off of my head. I’m sure it was a hysterical sight. Fourteen blistering degrees, people driving by thinking we’re nuts for being outside, me fighting with a hoodie that I can’t slide off my head – the whole time thinking I’m going to have a heat stroke. I survived, and that’s about all I can say about that.
Here’s hoping we’re past the last 14 degree mornings around here.
See you soon, hot stuff!
