Happy 9th Birthday

Good Morning! I hope everyone had a great weekend. I did. It was crazy busy but I had a lot of fun. I participated in my first 5K, taught a Copic class at my LSS, and had my parents visiting here for the weekend. Mom and I did quite a bit of shopping and Dad and Kip hang out and watched a movie. On Thursday evening we helped my little crafting buddy Samantha celebrate her 9th birthday. This is her birthday card. The image is from Shirley's 2 Girls and was colored with Copics. I added some glitter and brads and around the 9 on the number paper I added a circle of rhinestones. All the 9s on the paper were colored with a glitter pen that doesn't show up very well in the picture.

So I had three goals for the 5K. I wanted to actually do it, do it in less than an hour and not be the last person. I accomplished all three. I'm pretty happy with myself for accomplishing that. I will start working today training again so that I can beat my time on the next one!

Have a great day!!
