Natural


Just a quick post for Unity's Friends with Flair.  Realized I haven't posted all week so thought I should pop in and say hello today with this little monochromatic creation.  Hope you've had a great week!

Been busy with a few things... I alluded to this last week but wanted to share that I ran my very first 'official' 10 km run on Sunday.  My goal was an hour and I came in at 57:23 so I was pretty happy.  I had a great program from my physio and a fabulous running partner who stayed with me the whole way (she could have gone faster).  I'm not a natural runner so it was tough but happy I did it.  Also been busy working on some DT creations and publication submissions.

Bit of an exciting week... came in Runner Up over at DeNami Design and was one of the Fab Five over at Hero Arts!  Wow, pretty blown away.  I was really happy to share the Hero Arts spotlight with my blogger friend Lisa Arana and fellow Paper Smooches Sparks DT member Jackie Rockwell.

Gotta get back to my cleaning... have a friend visiting from 'across the pond'.
Have a fabulous weekend!  Thank for stopping by.
Glenda

    AWESOME run! Aren't you so proud of yourself! Mine is around the corner, so I'm psyched. Been taking it easy this week preparing (and carbo loading..lol...that's what I say so's I can drink a beer!)

    Love your card. Green is ANOTHER of my favorite colors. Maybe because it always make think of FRESH and lovely outdoors, where I would much rather be now that the weather is simply GRAND.
