With a little inspiration from the Mojo Monday 245 sketch, I got my Sisterhood of Crafters challenge whipped up in a jiffy! The challenge? Use at least two circles on your creation. Well I've got circles galore! I created a background using Verve's Happy Hello, which was mounted on kiwi, then put on my navy base. A debossed layer of bashful blue (with dots, of course), and a layered Loopy Bloom with felt leaves and it was complete!
May have to add some bling to that sentiment...
I used the colors in the color Q challenge cQc#141 for my combo and I thought it would be perfect for a manly card...but then I added the flower, so I'm not sure how manly this card is anymore... :)
I managed to complete over 3/4 of the MS Bike Tour on the weekend, no thanks to the brutal weather conditions. Saturday was 93kms of wonderfully alternating bits of sun and overcast. Sunday was another story. Apparently, the worst weather they've had in the 23 years of running the tour.
It was a mix of torrential downpour, moderate rain and winds with an average of 37km/hr, gusting to 50km/h for Sunday's ride...and a little hail tossed in momentarily for good measure. It was MISERABLE. LOTS of people dropped out at the first checkstop, more at the second and a bunch at lunch when they called in buses to haul people back to Nisku. We decided that we just wanted to skip the nasty hill so we got dropped off at the first checkstop after lunch and rode for about 8kms before it seemed dangerous and we finally waved the white flag. Three of our 20 team members actually finished the ride...I wasn't one of them, but I'm okay with that, having done over 3/4 of the ride. I finally rode the entire first day (bike repair & road paving making that impossible the last two years), so I was happy. LOL Beauty Bike and I are becoming fast friends!
A little under two weeks until I join some fabulous ladies for Starbucks 5K Women's Run in Calgary...and feast at Charcut. YUM! So much more fun to look forward to :)
