Blooming With Kindness for Fab Friday

TGIF! Wow! It has been a long week and I'm glad that Friday is finally here. As the end of the school year approaches, life has gotten busy, busy, busy. There are so many activities and field trips and programs! Add to that my son's soccer schedule, and it seems that I run all week long. Speaking of running, one of my New Year's Resolutions was to become an actual runner (not just a crazy mom running all over the place) and I am proud to say that I have actually met my goal. On April 27th, I ran in my first ever 5k and it was wonderful! I had never been a runner before and when I started, it was definitely a struggle. I used the Couch to 5k app on my iPhone and it really helped me reach my goal. Here is a picture of me just after I crossed the finish line. My official time was 33:59 (a personal best by over a minute).

And here is a picture of "Team Josh". We had special shirts made and ran in memory of my dear friend, Josh, who sadly passed away this past December. He was a great inspiration to me in my journey to get fit and we miss him terribly. The airplane in the background is a C5 military jet. The race was held at the Air National Guard base that is practically in my backyard.

 OK, enough personal stuff. You visited to see my card for Fab Friday and here it is...

Stampin' Up Supplies Used:
Stamps: Blooming with Kindness, Papillon Potpourri
Paper: Raspberry Ripple, Soft Suede, Primrose Petals, Summer Starfruit, Very Vanilla, 2013-2014 In Color DSP stack (retiring)
Ink: Soft Suede, Primrose Petals, Summer Starfruit
Accessories: Big Shot, Apothecary Accents framelits, Fancy Fan embossing folder, small butterfly punch, Raspberry Ripple stitched satin ribbon, pearls

To make my flower have a little extra dimension, I stamped it once and then moved the stamp slightly and stamped again without re-inking. I really like this flower done this way. I did this card as a class card because it could easily be used for lots of different occasions simply by switching the sentiment.

The challenge this week is a color challenge. Check it out...

Isn't it a pretty combination of colors? I hope you will come on over to Fab Friday and play along with us!
Have a wonderful weekend!
