Thank You x2

Hello everyone!!  I have been enjoying the heck out of this Spring, and I'm sad that summer is quickly approaching.  I have been spending a lot of time running outdoors (I'm up to running 2.5 miles!), hey, that's good for me!  And I also downloaded a new app for my iPhone called Fitocracy.  You see, I used to be a pretty big gamer (think World of Warcraft and Everquest)...crazy, I know!  Anyway, these app makes workouts into challenges, quests, and achievements.  I'm all about "leveling up my character," so this app is perfect for me in driving me to work out.  Let's just say that I used to work out at the gym 3 days a week max, and since I've downloaded and started using the app, I now am going on week 4 of working out and/or running on the trails a minimum of 6 days a week.  I give myself Saturday as a day to relax. :)  I'm loving life!

Anyway, since I've been enjoying all of the cool crisp evenings and bountiful flowers and butterflies, I felt inspired to make a couple of colorful and bright Thank You cards.  Check it out..

I just ADORE the set Rosy Posey and the coordinating set of Rosy Posey Dies.  I mean...LOVE these!!  I wanted to create some quick and easy CAS cards, but add a little dimension by popping up some of the die cut flowers.  For my first card, I used a palette of reds, yellow (hmm, doesn't look too yellow up there), aqua, pink and green.  I always get bored doing the same thing, so for my second card, I just changed a color and added orange. :)

See the difference?  I think it's pretty cool how changing just one color can make a card look different!  Oh yeah, I love adding Taylor's Tiny Twinkles to just about everything, so they got added on as centers.  They are all clear, but I always just color them with my Copics to any color I want them to be, just a cool little trick to adding more mileage to your Twinkles. ;)

By the way...4 tests down in my Physiology class and only 1 left to go!!  Still holding a solid A average in the class, which I'm very proud of! :)

Thanks for the visit!!
