It's Not All Black and White

Happy Hearts Wedding

So, what are you doing right now? Me? Well, obviously I'm typing up this blog entry...but I'm also treadmilling! I have found that blurfing (blog surfing) really makes the time fly by. Now of course you can't run because it shakes the treadmill too much for the laptop, but you can raise the incline to get a more effective walking workout. I know it's not the best workout, but it sure is more than I'd be doing otherwise. So that's my little side point of the day.
Moving on...here's a card. Because I'm sure you didn't come to read about my lame workout regimen.This one is so simple. Stamp the heart from Verve Visual's Heart to Heart on scrap paper in pink passion and cameo coral. Cut them out. Punch the green layer (Basic Grey Perhaps) with a Martha Stewart border punch and stamp sentiment (Verve Visual's Happy Thoughts). Adhere all your layers together except the card base. Tie on ribbon (Dashes Dots & Checks). Adhere to card. All done. Other papers are more Perhaps by Basic Grey, cameo coral and black by Stampin' Up!, and white by Papertrey Ink.

Love this card and think this is a wonderful workout routine, think you need to hook up your computer to a big screen with a wireless keyboard then you can practice for a marathon.LOL. Have a great weekend.

Good for you for working out and getting things done at the same time! I like to multi task too but this is a first for me...you must be ubber talented! Love your card today.

Beth said...

Definitely a woman of many talents but quite frankly I'm sure I'd hurt myself. I try to read while on our eleptical machine but even with the hand little book shelf, it is way beyond my level of coordination. Just wanted to let you know how much I have especially enjoyed your card creations lately. You are super talented!

Fabulous card Bethany! Great idea to workout and blog ;)

sophia landry said...

what a brilliant idea for a workout! The thing I hate about surfing is the sheer amount of time spent on your but! Oh and also the typing lol. Now if I could have a large screen in fron of my eliptical trainer and a headset to verbally type my comments that would be perfect ( no place to balance a laptop *sigh*. Love the card by the way, its very cute ( you going to try stamping and exercise next? lol.
