Race Day Cards for Friends

You might remember me telling you in my last post about how I did the relay last weekend. Well, I have some pretty awesome friends who also were involved in the race, and I wanted to do something small for them. I had recently bought these fun Let's Get Physical stamps from MFT, and they hadn't been inked yet! I bought them so I could make a food/exercise journal for myself. Tune back in a few days to see that little project! ;) Also, I thought it would be fun to make cards for my friends who were also doing the race.

I came up with a simple design using scraps of DP as the base of the cards. So they are all a little different. Jennie and Taryn were my relay buds. Jennie ran and Taryn biked in the race. I think it was really nice of them to team up with a beginning swimmer who is quite a bit older than either one of them(that would be me!) ;)

Donna is my regular workout friend, she is so encouraging! Mary is a dear friend and my coach, I trust her opinion, she really wants for me to achieve my best self. Wendy is a supportive friend who is quite the athlete in her own right! She's also an amazing jewelry designer, and we have really bonded over creative ventures. :)

I tried to pick colors I thought each lady would like. I used layered flowers as the embellishments. I thought it would be a fun touch to add their names, too :)

That's it for me, lots of scraps and old product used on these, so I'm not doing a supply list, but the stamps are from My Favorite Things.

big hugs!
