Huff and Puff

Hi, everyone!
This is a card I made (I made three, actually!) to send out to a few of my friends across the miles that have all been my inspiration for my work-outs, lately!

I've had this Riley Stamp for ages (I think it is called "Workout Riley", but it's no longer in the store, so I'm not certain). The current Riley and Company Challenge is to Celebrate Summer, and what better way to do that than to honor one's body by working it out?! :) I know this is a little different take on a Summertime Challenge, but......seriously, who doesn't start pumping up the iron to fit into their favorite summertime clothes more comfortably when the weather is warmer??

It's been a long road to taking the leap for me to join a gym, but that is just what hubby and I have done this past month. I have some great cyber-pals that post regularly on their Facebook pages about their hard work and they've been a tremendous inspiration, aka: kick in the pants! lol! They all have their cards from Mr. Postman, so now this post can be put up for you all to see! :)

For my card, I used some old Stampin' Up dp that I've had in my stash. I cut some dumb bells on my Silhouette Portrait, embellished with some white gel pen, and created the sentiment circle in my PSE program. The mat that Riley is mounted to is also a Silhouette cut file.

Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you enjoy my card!
