The Lawnscaping Challenge this week, sponsored by none other than Simon Says Stamp, is to create something with a Thank You theme. I used three Lawn Fawn sets to create my one layer card.
Paper: cardstock (PTI)
Ink: Memento; Copic Markers
Stamps: Lawn Fawn (Critters in the Forest; Fly Free; Many Thanks)
I was in the mood to do a little bit of colouring yesterday and decided to make this card, creating a kind of a fence with the logs. I love those little birdies! Nothing to explain here, it was simply fun.
So today I did my 16.5 mile race, it was hot for November, and humid, so conditions were not ideal. And unfortunately, although I did manage to do the distance, I was in quite a bit of pain from my left foot. But this time it was easier to make a decision. I run because it brings me joy, and as you know, if you have been following my blog, it has not brought me joy the last few weeks. So, without sadness, I have decided to tone down my mileage and focus on some Half Marathons, 13.1 miles, which is long enough. I hope that with the decrease in training volume my feet will heal a little and hopefully, I will regain that sense of enjoyment I am missing so much.
So I am off to ice my foot as it is giving shooting pains as I type, but I am sure it will feel much better by tomorrow.
So, thank you to all of you who left me your well wishes for today, it all made my day that much brighter.
