A Card-filled Sunday

I was able to return the Martha Stewart circle cutter that, contrary to what it said on the packaging, did not cut perfect circles...for me. Sigh.

I wasn't able to get myself out of bed this morning in time for spin class, but I did go to the gym after I returned the circle cutter. I did 30 minutes on the ArcTrainer while watching a rerun of Real Housewives of OC. I could definitely feel my legs burning by the end, so I was happy to get a good workout in...even if I didn't make it to spin.

Random thing from today: When I was working on cards this afternoon, I could hear someone wailing outside. This girl was bawling her eyes out, and I could hear her from across the street and above the music that was playing. She was sitting on my neighbor's steps, and my heart stopped for a moment because I was worried that something had happened across the street. I tried to get a closer look from my window to see if it was one of the kids and debated on whether I should go see if I could help out. The girl got up and started walking down the street, and I realized that it wasn't one of the neighbor's kids. The girl proceeded to take out her cell phone and yell at her mom. Yep, she was talking/crying loud enough that I could hear her as she turned the corner and went up the path behind the house. o_0

As the title of the blog post suggests, it was a busy afternoon. Here's what I came up with. I broke out the K.I. Memories stamp set and used it in all 3 of today's cards. The tiled flower one is my favorite. I can't wait to send it off to a friend. :)
