Everyone knows what today is...

It's GLEE!!!! Love Tuesday nights when Glee is on, if you haven't watched this chow, give it a chance, so cute, so funny and some real talent.
Hockey playoffs and Lost are also on, but I also have to manage to get out for a run tonight too, missed doing that yesterday because I was so tired. I am doing 7K in about 31min, I'm on track for beating my 10K time last June by 20min. There are other factors though, when I did the 10K last June it was 6mths after I gave birth and I still had some baby weight on, now that most of the baby weight is off, I am a bit quicker and I have more endurance. I hoping to do a half marathon either in the summer or in the fall or both.
Here is are couple pics (one of which I submitted to a challenge at 2peas of shoes)of my other hobby...running.

Now, lets get to the card talk. So, I stopped making cards for about a week, I find that when I make too many all at once that I feel really rushed and I don't like the end result. I also find that if someone asks me to do a card for them that is really specific, that I can't come up with something really creative, I am much better crafting when I just have time, when I feel like crafting, not when I HAVE to craft, you know what I mean?
Anyway, here is a bright card for you! TFL!

It's Monday...and it was a rough weekend:(

I didn't have a good weekend, kids are sick and waking up in the middle of the night. You don't realize how exhausting it is waking up numerous times in the night. In any case, I managed to do up a couple cards while the kids were taking their naps. I'm still trying to get my title centred on this new template, and I will admit, I am not computer savy, I try to be computer savy, but I always end up asking my husband what to do. He's been really busy lately too and hasn't had a chance to look at my blog. So, if anyone knows how to fix my title, please inform me with lots of detailed instructions...thanks!

Card happy today

Hey there! I had a day off today because I had to work the weekend. Managed to pump out a couple cards, go on 2 walks and I am just about to go out for a run right after I finish this blog. Enjoy the 2 cards and TFL!

Bear with me

Blog is under some construction, still doing some tweaking here and there.

A Friday Vacation Day

Hey there, I took a vacation day today to spend some time with my kids and decided to do a quick blog while my little guy naps and my little girl watched Alice in Wonderland. Easter weekend flew by for me, one of my best friends came for a visit from Vancouver so we added another little dinner party for her. So lets just say, that last weekend I have never eaten so much in my life! I did a lot of running to balance everything out. The weather was gorgeous and huge motivation for running outside. Today, on the other hand, is chilly, not sure if I can run outside, might have to resort to the treadmill. Hopefully, I will get to do a couple cards on Sunday. I have gotten a request for generic cards, you know, cards that could be birthday, thank you, miss you, whatever. So that will be a bit of a challenge for me.
Here are a couple cards that I did over the Easter weekend, TFL!

This is a birthday card for a friend

Here are a couple hand drawn cards...yes, I said it "hand drawn"

Okay...wow! It's been a looong time!

Hey there! So, my computer had this massive virus, thought we were going to have to buy a new one, but we managed to fix it, well, my husband managed to fix it. So, I am back online. I have to catch up on what I have missed around the blogging world. Besides having the virus, I have been super busy with cards, would you believe that I have been so busy that cards went out and I didn't get the chance to take pics of them!
Here are a couple recent ones:
One is for a friend that just had a baby boy and the other is an Easter card:) TFL!

This Bunny is a lift from Amy Celona (ustamp4fun.com) who credits her inspiration for this by from Sam Parisi. It was so cute I couldn't pass it up! Thank you for inspiring me!
