Monday Montage #158

I am not even sure where this past week went ... I do believe that there is something to the time-goes-faster-as-you-get-older thing ... not that I AM older or anything ... but each year seems to go by more quickly than the last. It's already mid-February ... how on EARTH did THAT happen??? sigh ... Monday Montage is upon us again and I had SO much fun making this card to share!

Check You Out ... I bought this stamp set at least two or three months ago, but I kind of forgot about it with all the holidays and such. It was fun inking it up. I make my own patterned paper for the backdrop using the "book" stamps in this set. It's soooo stinkin' cute! I did a bunch of fussy cutting since there are no dies with this set. I actually LIKE to fussy cut ... it relaxes me!

Stamps: Check You Out
Paper: Lovely Lipstick, Grapefruit Grove, Whisper White
Ink: Lovely Lipstick, Grapefruit Grove, Gorgeous Grape, Granny Apple Green

I started going to an Orangetheory gym at the end of August. I have been skeptical about doing any sort of group fitness classes for YEARS. I taught them myself for over 10 years ... step, hi/lo aerobics, weight training, spinning ... I did a lot. But I got burned out after a while, and, to be honest, it was hard for me to take classes from someone else when I wasn't the instructor! Does that even make any SENSE??? My niece had been going to Orangetheory for a while and looked GREAT, so she talked me into trying it. I freakin' LOVE it!!! And it has helped SOOOO much with my running. We did a 7-mile training run last Saturday ... I felt GREAT the whole dang time! It's been a long while since I loved working out this much ... and for that I am thankful!! Grateful that this old bod of mine allows me to do it!!
