Fun with Hanna

I'd forgotten all about my Pink Passion cardstock and ink...haven't had it out in months. It was perfect for this card, because it had to be bold, bright & fun, for my daughter, Megan = ) ! This card is soooo her!! Meg is a distance runner at Oregon State University (Go Beavs!) and spends about 2 hours, on average, in the gym, running or doing some type of training every day! She's had some set-backs and challenges over the past couple years, but that girl is like the Energizer Bunny...she just keeps going, and going, and going!!! I thought this card might brighten (literally, lol!) up her day! When I saw this stamp set (Hanna Stamps, Getting Physical) over at Eclectic Paperie , I knew I had to have it. I've been watching & waiting for a stamp set that featured working out and/or running. The sentiment (Celebrate You) is from the SU Mini catalog, from the Phrases for a Friend set. Long story short, I had lunch with Cami (StampaLittleLoveBaby) & her new recruit, Gail, on Friday and, of course we all chatted non-stop about stamping the entire time. Cami's on the DT for Hanna Stamps, so I was telling her I'd seen this set and loved it and...guess what? She shows up on my doorstep a couple hours later... lets me borrow her set, so I don't even have to wait till mine comes!! Yeah, she's like this mega-talented superstar stamper...but she's also one of the nicest people I've ever met. Thanks Cami...YOU really are the best! She also has the new, Tool Time Hanna card up on her blog today, you don't want to miss that...very, very cute!! Oh, and thanks Gail for all your inspiration and for the awesome lunch too = ) !!

That's all for now...more to show you later in the week. Divine Design Bible Verse Challenge coming up on Tuesday and MORE = ) !!!

This is adorable, Nancy! You're such a good mom! Can't wait until Megan gets another break from college and can stamp again! She's so talented, and I love seeing her creations!
