Last year I trained for and ran my first full marathon. It was an incredible journey! During training and even right after crossing the finish line, I was adamant that it would be my one and ONLY full marathon. I knew I'd continue running, but 26.2 miles wasn't going to show up again in my future.
Never say never, right?
A week later, I was excited at the thought of training just one more time for that full marathon medal. Since The Hubs and I are interested in starting a family next year, I figure that this is my last viable year before kids to train hard. And I'm proud to say that our dedication to our training has inspired MANY family members to jump on board and sign up to run this year's Detroit International Half Marathon in October.
This encouragement card is for my sister-in-law, Christina. This is her first time ever running and she's doing such a great job of sticking with the training schedule. I'm so proud of her.
I printed the words on my computer directly onto my card base, leaving room for the 13.1 die cut-outs. After cutting out my mileage number, I adhered a square of turquoise card stock behind the card front with pop-dots to add dimension.
For the Ghost Stamping technique, I first stamped my feet in white and then stamped them again (a little 'off') in turquoise. It's a subtle effect on this color card base, but adds a bit of flair.
