Card Group Cards & A New Personal Best

Fun day today. Got a whole slew of things accomplished. I also took some "fun time" for me and finished up my card group cards for this month's exchange. The challenge was to create a card that could be used to give a gift card, instead of the strange little wrap-around things they give you at the store. AND I just used my stash, which is the best part. (The flowers are white, despite what they look like in the picture!)


And in other exciting news, Tony and I ran another 5K race this morning. And despite a puny training week for me because of my nasty cold, we still managed to set a new personal best time of 33:25...about 45 seconds off our last race time. Bless Tony's heart, he stayed with me and encouraged me the entire race. What a guy!
