It's Thursday ALREADY???

Where da HECK did this week go already??? I feel like it was JUST Monday!!! Yikes!!! Maybe it's 'cause I'm getting nervous for my first 1/2 marathon this Saturday (and maybe THAT'S because my shin splints decided to be MEAN to be this week!)!! Sigh ... I am GONNA finish!!! And I am gonna TRY not to die in the process ... but I digress ...

We recently had another swap with the Control Freaks ... and I am just NOW getting around to posting my card for that!! We were given the challenge of using some of the new "preview" catalog stuff (which is now not preview at ALL since the whole catalog is available ... YIPPEEEEEE!!). I get the BEST swaps from the Control Freaks. Never a clunker in the bunch!!!

You can actually make the little "bracket" I used with the Artisan Punch ... BUT it takes a little bit of patience to get it all lined up. AND since I was making 30 of these babies (which means I needed SIXTY of the little brackets), I just decided to pull out my trusty ol' Silhouette and use a bracket from MDS so that the machine could could them all FOR me ... lickety split!!

Stamps: Traveler, Something to Say, Work of Art
Paper: Crumb Cake, Lost Lagoon, Mossy Meadow, Whisper White, Very Vanilla
Ink:  Crumb Cake, Lost Lagoon, Mossy Meadow
Accessories:  Arrows Textured Impression Embossing Folder, Natural Chevron Ribbon,  Baked Brown Sugar Thick Baker's Twine, Banner Punch, Staple, Silhouette (eCutter)

From Millan.NetSoooo ... I'm gonna do some happy stretching and massaging on the darn shin splints today ... and then maybe do my run this evening ... then I take tomorrow OFF from running so I will be all happy and fresh on Saturday!!! I'll let y'all know if I made it without falling ...

Very cool plain and simple card...I could have sworn that you used the racoon or the fox at some time...yes it is surprising that you have never used this set!
