There is a story behind this card. This week I started an exercise class at work during my lunch hour on Thursday. I'll go to the class for the next 14 weeks. The class is supposed to help with strength and flexibility. So during the class, each participant is paired with an undergraduate student who is taking a class to learn to teach people how to exercise. So my student's name is Cooper. He's just the nicest and friendliest young guy and I like him a lot. Part of our class is walking on a track and getting to know one another. He asked me what I did for fun and I told him I made greeting cards. I don't think he quite understood that. So during the class the head instructor called us "movement buddies". So one night this week while I was tossing and turning and not sleeping, I came up with the idea for this card for Cooper for Valentine's Day. I used the sketch from Tuesday Morning Sketches #337.
The image is from DeeDee's digis (who unfortunately is no longer in business) and I did the sentiment on the computer. The background paper is from a paper pack called Safari by the Paper Studio. The circular element is die cut with Spellbinder's Heart Circles (which I thought was appropriate). I used some of the hearts to add to the banner tag for the sentiment. The banner is from MFT. The image is cut from MFT Inside and Out Stitched Rounded Corner Squares. Here's the inside of the card.
I am entering these challenges:
- Tuesday Morning Sketches: sketch
- Simon Says Wednesday: Have a Heart
- Hiding in my Craft Room: no red or pink
- Simply Create Too: love/valentine
- Inspiration Destination: anything goes
- Through the Craft Room Door: anything goes
I hope you like my unusual valentine today. Are you rooting for a special team for the Super Bowl tomorrow? I'm torn. I would love to see Peyton Manning go out on top and win it again. But North Carolina has had a great year and they deserve to be where they are. So I guess I'll be happy no matter what the outcome. I'm just so happy that the Patriots aren't playing! Thanks for stopping by. Hope you'll visit again soon.
