A Valentines Day Card

Valentines Day is right around the corner.  Yikes, Need a few cards to send to friends and loved ones.
I created the below card by spritzing Picked Raspberry, Squeezed Lemonade, Milled Lavender, Seedless Preserves, and Shaded Lilac.
The Stamp set is unknown, but I think I purchased it from Hobby Lobby.

For the first time I am uploading cards I am making based on inspiration from a card class I am participating in.  Normally I take the class and do not make anything while the class is active.  Ok, I admit it am a lurker...
So this time I am trying to do a few cards from the lessons I am learning from  Clean & Simple Card Making 2.  The talented artists that teach this class are far more meticulous than I am.  I have no patience, lol.

Below is a card I created that is a mix of inspiration from the 14 days of class.

Cardstock is from my stash
Stamp set is Technique Tuesday, growing wild
Inks:  Hero Arts soft granite and wet cement
Tim Holtz peacock feathers and wild honey
Judikens white embossing powder
Hero Arts banner thin die

Hot Chocolate 5k

Today, I slept on as my darling husband woke up, dressed, picked up a friend and proceeded to Fair park for the Hot Chocolate 5k. 

It was not my intention to bail on the morning walk but as it turns out it was a good thing.  If I had went I would have held my honey back from achieving his full potential.  He ran the race at a little over a 9 minute mile!  Great job, Tracy!  So very proud of you.
