I know I sure am.

Tomorrow I embark on a journey with an unknown outcome......
I am doing my very first Spartan race!!
For those who don't know what it is here's a link.

I picked up my race package and this is what the front of it says

I'm getting a bit nervous.

Oh well, at least I'll be surrounded by friends. :)

Anyway, on to the good stuff.
Today I am sharing a card I made using my Avery Elle Signature dies, and Sending you stamp set.

I love the look of purple and yellow or gold together.

sending thanks

Hey there!

I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend.
My husband and I spent it away from the little man (first time since his birth 17.5 months ago!!!) and went back to where we got married to celebrate our 5th anniversary. 

It was a lot of fun, an although we were only away for 23 hours, we spent much of that time talking about him!!
Oh well, that little creature does sort of rule the roost around here!!

Anyway, today I am sharing a little thank you card that I will be giving to my in-laws to thank them for taking such great care of the kid. 

I used Avery Elle's Many Thanks set.
 I just love this bold font, and how it stands out so well against the watercolour backdrop.

Pop on over to the Avery Elle blog to check out a stunning card by Chunyuan!

Thanks so much for stopping by today.

Good Morning!

sending hugs

Hey there!

The blog has been a bit quiet lately.
I have been trying to spend more time with my family in between all of the things that take us away. :)

My son and I recently got back from a trip out to Ontario to visit my Grandpa,
his Great Grandpa, who's 93 no less!!

And since most, actually all, of my family lives far from where I do, I think this new set from Avery Elle will come in very handy for sending quick little notes to keep in touch.

I used the new Sending You set for the sentiment and the little gold heart image, and the Oh Yeah Elle-ments die set to cut out the speech bubble.

Avery Elle Sending You Clear Stamps  Our Oh Yeah Custom Steel Die are exclusive to Avery Elle.  The largest speech bubble is the perfect size to fit into a 3 x 4" page protector pocket or to create your own journaling card.  These premium steel dies coordinate with our Oh yeah and Picture It clear photopolymer stamp sets and are proudly made in the USA. Measurements: Largest Speech Bubble Die - just under 3 " x 4"

Stop on by the Avery Elle blog to check out some amazing inspiration from Chunyuan.

Thanks for stopping by today, have a wonderful day!
