Wednesday Stamp Club - I'm Under Construction

So, it looks like I fell off the Wednesday Stamp Club wagon - what can I say our family vacation got in the way! But I'm BACK! And I'm excited to get back into my groove of the WSC.

If you too happened to fall off the WSC wagon and you haven't made a card for the sketches lately, well JOIN ME!  Its only once a week, and now that the kids have been out of school and running us ragged, we need a little stamp time.

Well, remember how I was saying that its all about "creating" your life, and finding out who you want to be along the way. Well me, I'm breaking one of my life-long rules.  I am NOT a runner.  I've always said "I only run when chased." This was my mantra. Well people it seems, I'm breaking all the rules.

Given all this, it was only fitting that I ink up "Let's Get Physical" for this week's sketch.  I tucked my sentiment on using the new File Tab Die-namics.  Patterned paper is Playground from Echo Park. 


My friend Carole and I have often laughed that we have a hobby that doesn't do anything for your weight.  One of my part time jobs involves a lot of time at a desk, and lets admit it, cardmaking and blogging also involve a fair amount of time sitting on your butt.  So....after a week on a vacation, in a bathing-suit, I decided it's about time I do something about that.

Its all thanks to Lori Craig that I know I can do it. When we went out for dinner last month, she told me about an amazing application for your iPhone called Couch to 10k.  I don't necessarily have my eyes on any 10K's but I do know this. If it is a program designed for a couch dweller like me, there is a *possibility* I can pull this off.

I'm only on the second week, but already I look forward to my workout days. And for me, that's a HUGE change.  I'm usually the girl looking for an excuse NOT to work out.  But I've been loving getting up early, before the rest of the house is awake, and having a quiet hour to myself, before it gets hot, before my job as MOM starts for the day.  I think it is actually a good thing that I started this on summer vacation or else I'd NEVER have a moment to myself.  thanks LORI for being my inspiration!  {{heart you girlie!}} I'm not a runner yet, but I sure do hope to be.  <---- And those my friends, are words I thought I'd NEVER say.

I hope you'll join me in this week's Wednesday Stamp Club - here's this weeks awesome sketch.  I hope you'll forgive me skipping those two tiny embellies on the side.  I stitched over there instead.  And instead of a flower embellishment, I used it as a place to tuck a little gingham bow.  I sorta cheated. But dang girl, I RAN.  *giggle*
Have a GREAT time with the sketch, can't wait to see what you create! Remember you can find links to all the DT with samples today on the MFT Blog!
