Happy Birthday : Sisterhood Challenge

For the Sisterhood of Crafters Challenge this time around, we had birthday creations. I know I have my mom's birthday next month, so I decided to get a head start.
Using her favorite color as a base (purple), I went with some of this great Basic Grey Wisteria paper that I had yet to cut up and a layout from SCS. Other than my sponge being apparently a little grubby (which resulted in more of a peachy color than the light purple), I was happy with how this CAS creation turned out. I hope she likes it, too.
The sentiment stamps are both Verve, of course :)
Over the weekend, we headed down to Calgary for a sweet wine tasting at a fabulous wine shop (Bin 905) with some friends, then Saturday it was out to Lake Louise for some time on the skis/snowboards. What a blast! I definitely notice a difference in my ability from when I started last year.
Anyways, head over to The Sisterhood of Crafters to show us your Birthday crafts!

Thank You : Sisterhood Challenge

Well this time around at The Sisterhood of Crafters, we have the theme of Thank You for our challenge. I actually managed two cards - both pretty CAS.
I used the Viva La Verve February Week 2 sketch for inspiration, as well as the photo that Maureen provided to inspire. I went with Rich Razzleberry instead of a more pink, though. I kept with the Verve sentiment and an unused SU! image.

On the second card, I used my as yet unloved PTI dies and stamps for Wonderful Words and Wonderful Words Additions. Again, very clean and simple.

I finished my third half marathon - The Hypothermic Half - on Sunday, so it's been pretty casual around here the last couple of days. I have my massage today and I cannot wait!!

While I was initially very frustrated with my Garmin not turning on before the run, I decided to do a karma run - no pace, no assigned breaks, and came within a minute and a half of my personal best. YAY!

Again, I hope to make more time to blog surf and create....but it would definitely help if my work would fix their internet so it didn't take ages for images to load.....just saying ;) Yeah, yeah, I know I'm supposed to be working! HAHA

Happy Wednesday, everyone!

Head over and show us what you've got for the Thank You challenge
